Astro Cat from Lightning Box is the 1296 ways-to-win Chinese themed slot where you can win up to 500x your total bet!
Colourfully designed Chinese theme
The slot is more complex-looking than your average slot game because of the unusual number of reels. The top base icons are the dragon, frog and coy symbols all of which are rich in symbolic meaning. The middle tier includes a decorated penjing tree, and traditional hand fans. The lower paying icons include the 9, Q, J, K and A poker variety. The illustrations in this slot are colourfully designed and beautiful to look at and with a little luck you will get to see the animated wild cat flying across your screen dropping coins in its wake. Spinning the reels also triggers a short Chinese-themed tune with the added sound effects arising from winning features and payline.
Wild cat, fireworks scatter, Reelfecta and gamble feature
If you like wilds, then the good news is that this slot has the wild cat wild that can appear on the 3rd and 4th reels and substitute for all symbols except the bonus. The fireworks scatter symbol is your way of unlocking up to 12 free spins with locked wilds. With 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9+ symbols you can win coins in prizes of 1x, 5x, 10x, 25x or 500x your total bet. Lock in 12 wild cat symbols and it's the Megaspin feature for you where you can win up to 16x with the Reelfecta reel. The third reel is the Reelfecta made up of 16 spaces. From top left corner in a clockwise motion during each free spin on the outer position of the Reelfecta reel, specific reels will display either a +1 wild cat or poison symbol. The appearance of a +1 wild cat symbol locks in the +1 wild cat and you get up to a maximum of 12 free spins. The Poison will not appear on the first three spins but after that if it does appear the free spins will end and you win 2x your total bet. Manage to land +1 wild cat symbol on all 12 outer positions for the mega spin award. The slot also offers an optional gamble feature challenging you to play either the red/black gamble or poker suit gamble feature for double or nothing or quadruple or nothing.
