If moggies were mobsters is the unlikely theme of The Catfather, a 5 reel, 9 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. These feisty felines come with stacked wilds that can fill up to 3 reels as well as a bonus feature that awards up to 50 free spins with all payout quadrupled. Stakes range from 9p right up to £45 per spin.
The design in The Catfather has a light-hearted, cartoon feel. Joining the A, K and Q playing cards are 5 criminal cats. Each 1 has a pawprint when it spins so you can keep track of how valuable they are. The most lucrative symbol is the cat in the bowler hat, sporting a monocle. 5 of these on a payline will get you 200 coins. It’s worth noting here that winning lines can be created from right to left as well as the more usual left to right.
The kittens in the box symbol is the wild – every time 1 of these lands, you’re guaranteed a payout. 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline awards 1, 5, 50, 250 or 5,000 coins. These wilds can expand too to fill any or all of reels 2, 3 or 4.
The other symbol you’ll want to see is the kidnapped mouse which is the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 of these will get you a payout of 2, 5 or 20 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 10, 15 or 25 free spins. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 4x multiplier and quadrupled. Land the scatters and you’ll trigger another set of free spins with up to 50 free spins available.
The Catfather is a rather silly but entertaining slot – the theme is as ridiculous as it comes but the features make this a playable game. The stacked wilds help the base game tick over and you won’t be waiting an age to trigger the free spins round. Throw the 4x multiplier and an RTP rate of 98% into the mix and some decent action is on offer here.
Get lucky with the extras and The Catfather can make you an offer you cannot refuse. If you like cats, I also recommend you try Cats from IGT which is a land based on online favourite.
