For those of you who are fans of Asian themed slots, Fortune 8 Cat is another in that genre named after the Chinese number eight believed to hold good fortune. The developer Lightning Box has put together this 5-reel, 4-row and 1024 ways to win slot which has an ultimate aim of objective of winning up to 25,000 coins!
Standard graphics and sounds
Fortune 8 Cat offers thematic symbols that represent good fortune, power, affluence and longevity through the dragon, frog, koi and turtles icons at the middle tier of the payout scale. The lower level symbols include the K, Q, J, 10 and 9 poker symbols which are common to many slots. The top paying symbol is the firecrackers symbol. The sound effects of spins winning paylines are standard and there is not much in the way of thematic music or really any music for that matter. The slot is not one of the most visually appealing and the lack of Chinese world music is disappointing.
888 wilds, firecrackers scatter and free spins
Standard for many slots is the wild symbol and Fortune 8 Cat is no different with the 888 wild symbol which only appears on the 2nd and 4th reels and will replace all other symbols except the firecrackers scatter symbol. This aforementioned symbol is the highest paying in this slot with 3, 4 or 5 symbols rewarding you with up to 200, 1,000 or 25,000 coins irrespective of their positions on the reels. In addition the same 3, 4 or 5 symbols will award 5, 10 or 20 free games and what's more is the bonus wilds which are added to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. The feature can also be re-triggered with the appearance of an additional 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols while active.
Medium volatility slot
The stakes can range from €0.40 to €20 on a medium volatility slot meaning that the wins may come a little less often with the odd larger prize and may require a larger bank role to play for longer positioning you for a shot at a larger win. The slot compensates for this by offering a high payout of up to 125x your total bet with 5 scatters but it drops substantially to 25x, 18.75x or less on winning paylines after that. In terms of features this is a slot that does not try to reinvent the wheel and you will not find a lot in the way of features so it really comes down to whether you enjoy the theme and prizes. Before playing for real money we always suggest that you try the slot by playing it for free to see if it is the right game for you.
