Pushy Cats Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 20 paylines

Stakes Range: 20p to £100 per spin

RTP: 96%

Max Win: 20,000 x stake per spin

The Pushy Cats slot is played with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. Forming a winning combination is as simple as it can be. You need 3 or more identical symbols from left to right and starting from reel 1 across any of the paylines.

Available to spin away from 20p to £100 a spin, there is a Cash Bet box beneath the reels. Click on this to bring up all 17 available bets. In the Settings section, you can change the Spin Speed for faster spins. There’s also an Auto Spin function where infinite spins with a number of limits are possible. Both these functions are not available in the UK.

The Pushy Cats RTP is 96% which is exactly the online slots average. This high volatility slot will give you a win every 5 spins on average with the hit frequency rate being 20%.

When it comes to wins, you can win up to 20,000 x your total stake on each spin. This is much more likely during the free spins due to the multipliers and bouncers which increase in value the higher the level you reach.

Theme – head to a cat TV gameshow

Theme: Cats

High Value Symbol: Gold Cat Collar Bell

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

With a cat theme, the Pushy Cats slot is quite an odd one visually. Colourful and bright, the setting looks like a circus or gameshow set with cats in the crowd. Dominated by golds and purples, the soundtrack is upbeat and fun. It does look a little like a cartoon truth be told.

Symbols include A, K, Q and J royals. The 4 higher value symbols are represented by 2 fish on a plate symbols, a meat joint (again on a plate) and a gold cat collar bell. The gold cat collar bell is the best paying symbol giving you 1.5, 6 or 25 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.

The purple cat is the wild symbol. Substituting for all symbols except the paw print bonus symbol, a wild will give you respins and even trigger the main Bonus Game feature (free spins).

Pushy Cats Mobile

Produced by Yggdrasil Gaming using HTML5 technology, Pushy Cats is available to play on laptop, PC, mobile and tablet devices. The 5×3 layout is perfect for mobile play but the best experience is always on a bigger screen in my opinion.

Pushy Cats Bonus Features

With 10 bonus features, the Pushy Cats slot has more extras than lives. Most of them come in the free spins where there’s increasing multipliers, walking wilds and Bouncer extras. It’s a multi-level feature where the rewards from the Bouncers increase as you rise through the levels.

Sticky Wild Respins feature

The Sticky Wild Respins feature is triggered when a purple cat wild symbol lands in the base game. The wild only lands on the 3 middle reels (i.e. reels 2, 3 and 4). With a free respin awarded, the respins keep coming as long as you keep landing new wilds or achieve 3 wilds on the reels.

Bonus Game feature

pushy-cats-slot-bonus-game-feature

If you manage to land 3 wild symbols in the base game on the same spin or a series of respins, the Bonus Game feature is activated. You can also enter the feature by collecting 10 paw print bonus symbols during the base game.

Once in, you will randomly play the feature at level 1, 2 or 3. The higher the level, the higher the potential rewards. Furthermore, the less Vortex Bouncers will appear that decreases your chances of the feature ending. You can gamble to play at a higher level. If you lose, the feature doesn’t even start.

Whatever level you play at, there’s a multiplier applied to every win. The multiplier increases by 1 for every win, with no limits. The triggering wilds become walking wilds and randomly move to 1 of the neighbouring positions with each free spin.

More importantly, Bonus Game Bouncers appear around the 5×3 grid. If the wild symbol ends on 1 of the bouncers, it moves back to its original position and the applicable Bouncer Bonus feature is awarded. All Bouncers only comes into play once and disappear once triggered. Here’s what to expect:

  • Vortex Bouncer feature: the wild disappears from the reels. When all wilds disappear, the feature ends.
  • Multiplier Bouncer feature: multiplier bouncers can increase the overall multiplier by 1, 2, 3 or 4.
  • Coins Bouncer feature: a cash prize between 1 and 50 x stake is won.
  • U-Turn Bouncer feature: the wild is saved.
  • Extra Wild Bouncer feature: 1 or 2 additional wilds will be added to the reels
  • Bonus Game Level Up Bouncer feature: level increases with new bouncers appearing instead of Vortex ones

Outside of the UK, there’s a Buy Bonus feature. You can buy your way into the Bonus Game feature for 100 x your total stake. If you’ve collected paw print bonus symbols, the price will decrease.

Golden Bet feature

Used in my Yggdrasil Gaming slots, there is a Golden Bet feature. For a 25% bigger stake, your chances of landing wild symbols increase. This will in turn activate the Sticky Wild Respins and Bonus Games features more often.

Originality








From a visual point of view, the Pushy Cats slot isn’t the most appealing. If you’re a pet owner or love cats in particular, this cutesy game might pique your interest. If you compare to slots like Tombstone RIP (which features hangings) and San Quentin (based on the notorious prison), it’s soft.

In terms of gameplay, Pushy Cats is different. I like the way the walking wilds can lead to various bouncer features which can give you cash prizes, up your level and increase the multiplier. The multipliers are key to the big wins of 20,000 x stake per spin.

If you want more feline adventures, King of Cats Megaways by Big Time Gaming is recommended and is based on bigger cats such as lions and pumas. It also offers 2 slots in 1 and comes with 56,620 x stake max wins.

Overall, Pushy Cats may offer 20,000 x stake max wins but the theme and visuals won’t appeal to many players. For this reason in my opinion, it will become a shelf filler. If you love cats, you may be on you own as a crazy cat lady.

Pros
  • 20,000 x stake max wins
  • Total of 10 bonus features
  • Multi-level free spins
Cons
  • Visually quite basic
