Cat Wilde and the Lost Chapter is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 flexible pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right. You can join the intrepid explorer on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (8/10) with a default RTP of 96.20%. Currently, we have no indication whether it will be made available with customizable RTP values.
The visuals are not significantly different from Cat’s first debut on Doom of Dead and pretty much what you can expect from an Egyptian-themed slot. The action takes place inside an ancient pyramid with giant columns and eternal flames flanking the reel set which itself is dominated by Cat herself as well as the jackal god Anubis and other items from Egyptian mythology.
The pay symbols start at the low end with beautifully crafted card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 10x to 15x your bet for a single five of a kind. The premiums are a golden scarab, an Ankh cross, Anubis and Cat Wilde herself. Hit five on a line to win 75x to 1,000x your stake. A golden sacred scroll marked with a ‘W’ is the wild, substituting for all regular pay symbols and also yielding 1,000x your bet for a line of five.
A pyramid with the Eye of Horus and a turquoise hue is the scatter in the base game. It will turn into a wild scatter during the free spins, recognizable by the red hue. During the Pyramid Spins, it will keep the red hue but will be marked with a golden scarab. Three, four or five scatters will pay 1x, 10x and 100x time your bet.
Cat Wilde and the Lost Chapter Slot Features
This Play’n GO creation is a typical example for the evolution of a simple slot mechanic that has proven to be immensely popular ever since it was introduced by Novomatic on their Book of Ra slot. Play’n GO has itself joined the crowd, turning Book of Dead into one of the most played slots at online casinos. They have since released a few variations such as Doom of Egypt, Rise of Dead or Dawn of Egypt, the latter serving as the main inspiration for The Lost Chapter.
Hitting three, four or five scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger an initial 8 Free Spins, plus award the coins wins as described above. At the start of every free spin, one regular pay symbol is randomly selected to act as the special expanding symbol. After potential line wins are paid, it will expand and award a payout for all 10 pay lines even when the symbols are not on adjacent reels. You will need three low-value symbols or two high-value symbols in view on a free spin while expanded Wilds can substitute for the special symbol.
The turquoise hue on the standard pyramid scatter is changing to a red hue for the duration of the bonus feature, turning them into Wild Scatters. Any two or more landing on a free spin will trigger the Pyramid Spins. You will get one spin for each triggering scatter. Any further landing during the Pyramid Spins will add +1 spin, no limits.
The regular free spins will be paused until the Pyramid Spins have been played. The kicker that can make a huge difference to your potential winnings is that the selected special expanding symbol on the triggering spin will be retained for the duration of all Pyramid Spins. The max win is capped at an impressive 10,000 times your bet.
The release of Cat Wilde and the Lost Chapter took us somewhat by surprise as it was not officially announced on Play’n GO’s roadmap. Admittedly, they have never publicized exclusive game and it is up to our usual search tours on casino sites that we discover what is sometimes a true gem such as this. The slot is highly playable and just as volatile, fast-paced and has double the usual win cap for Play’n GO games. Well worth to join the intrepid explorer on her second solo reel adventure.
