Visually, Desert Cats is what you’d expect from WMS – it has a certain land-based feel to it. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as ankh crosses, stone tablets, death masks, Bastet, lions and an Egyptian woman. The latter 2 symbols are the most rewarding giving you 200 times your stake for 7 across a payline.

The lion is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols bar the scatter (the golden lion). Wilds can appear 1x1 or 2x2 in size. The 2x2 wild may contain gems and only appear in the base game – the 2x2 wild without gems will only appear in the Free Spins Bonus feature.

During the base game, 2 adjacent reels will be replaced by reels consisting of only 2x2 wilds – each 2x2 wild will contain gems that can reward you with jackpot prizes. You will win a jackpot if you get 6 or more red gems:

  • 6 Red Gems will trigger the Minor Jackpot which is worth 10 times your stake
  • 7 Red Gems will trigger the Medium Jackpot which is worth 40 times your stake
  • 8 Red Gems will trigger the Major Jackpot which is worth 80 times your stake
  • 9 Red Gems will trigger the Super Jackpot which is worth 600 times your stake
  • 10 Red Gems will trigger the Mega Jackpot which is worth 2,000 times your stake

Desert Cats also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when you land 3, 4 or 5 scatter lion symbols – your reward will be 5, 15 or 50 free spins as well as 10 or 15 times your stake (for 4 or 5 scatters). During the feature, getting 3 scatters will give you 5 more free spins – in total, it’s possible to get 55 altogether.

More importantly, 2 sets of 2 adjacent reels will be replaced with reels consisting of only wild symbols – this means 4 reels will have wilds on them to increase your winning potential. This makes it easier to win the maximum 200 times your stake payout on every free spin.

I really like Desert Cats as the Free Spins Bonus feature can give you big rewards due to the reels being filled with wilds. The bigger wins will come from the Mega Jackpot as 2,000 times your stake can be yours if you get 10 Red Gems in the base game.

Desert Cats would really be a slot to be reckoned with if the pays for the regular symbols were higher as 200 times your stake on each spin/free spin is pretty low. Overall, a decent slot from WMS but I’d much rather play more volatile ancient Egyptian offerings like Book of Dead from Play ‘N Go or Ark of Mystery from Quickspin.
