Cutesy cartoon creatures are the stars of Pets, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Pariplay. It comes with randomly added wilds as well as a pair of free spin bonuses complete with stacked and sticky wilds. Play, on all devices, from between 40p and £40 per spin.

The imagery here has a glossy feel – the setting is the back alley of a city street. The reels are made up of 3D animals including birds, tortoises, fish, cats and dogs. The scraggy looking white cat is the top standard symbol, paying 1,500 coins if you land 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild (Trash Can)that substitutes for everything bar the bonus scatter and offers awards of 100, 250 or 2,500 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

To the side of the reels you’ll see a bin – this can open at random and in the process, add a selection of extra Trash Can Wilds to the reels for that spin. This is known as the Trash Can Random Wilds feature.

Pets comes with 3 other bonus features – these are triggered by landing 3 bonus symbols. You’ll then get to spin the Hamster Wheel. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll win 1 of the following extras:

  • Bonus Multipliers feature – a cash award equal 4, 8, 12, 25, 40 or 80 times your total stake is awarded.
  • Wild Cat Free Games feature – here you’ll be awarded 3 free spins. On each free spin, at least 1 reel and possibly up to 3 will turn totally wild.
  • Feline Frenzy Free Games feature – 7 free spins are awarded if you land this feature. From the second free spin, a sticky wild is added. These will remain in position throughout the feature. By the last free spin, you’ll have 6 sticky wilds in play.

Expect to land the cash prizes more regularly than either of the free spin bonuses here.

The design here is very well done if you like the cutesy theme. We’re not really sure who cuddly animals are aimed at though and it’s certainly not our favourite style of slot. The features are solid enough. We triggered them regularly but never got close to landing a really big prize though. The RTP stands at 93.14%.

Pets is all very nicely done and there’s good potential to win big in the 2 free spins features – I found it to be a medium variance title. If you like the cutesy, animal theme, I recommend you play NetEnt’s Wolf Cub.
