Play Cats and Cash At These Casinos
ABOUT THIS SLOT
The iconic Wheel of Fortune from the famous TV show has been the inspiration for a few real money online slots, the most famous of which is ITG’s own Wheel of Fortune game which transitioned from the land-based casino floors of Vegas to become one of the first blockbuster games of the online world. It is fair to say though that none of the WoF games we know of have used cats as the main protagonists until this one came along in 2013!
The action takes place on a reel set that sits against the backdrop of a TV studio, where you have a charming host, his lovely assistant, and four feline contestants battling for prizes. Cats and Cash is somewhat unusual not just because of the amusing narrative but also because players can choose how many lines are in play on each spin – up to 15 in total. It is also famous for it’s 2 bonus rounds – a Pick Me Bonus and the Wheel itself.
RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS
Cats and Cash is a medium variance game which means the payout distribution is fairly even. Whilst you can’t expect wins on every spin, you won’t have the frustration of hundreds of fruitless plays before hitting the the big time. And in this respect the game has an appeal to a wider audience than Play n Go’s other high variance slots. The RTP is a fairly standard 96% which means on average $96 in every $100 will be paid out in prizes.
Players can win up to 5,000 coins in the Wheel of Fortune Bonus, and up to 2,000 coins in the Pick-a-Gift Bonus. The biggest possible payout throughout the game is set at 86,540 coins.
SYMBOLS AND PAYTABLE
It is time for us to meet the players, and to see what kinds of prizes are waiting for them.
A charming Cat, an attractive Girl Cat, a Lady Cat, and a Nerd Cat are the low-paying symbols and the contestants in the game. Meanwhile, gold, jewellery, and money are among high-value icons, delivering from 2,500 to 500 coins for the maximum combination.
The Bonus Scatter triggers the Wheel of Fortune feature, while the Gift Scatter triggers the Pick-a-Gift feature. And look out as well for our host who is the Wild, substituting for all regular icons to form wins and doubling payouts when part of a winning combination. He also carries the highest value of 10,000 coins for five of a payline.

GAMEPLAY AND FEATURES
Cats and Cash offers two exciting additional features outside the base game to enhance your win opportunities and rachet up the tension. This is where all the good stuff happens.
Pick-a-Gift Bonus Feature
To trigger this particular feature, players need to land three Gift Scatters on an active payline, beginning from the leftmost reel. When that is achieved, they will have the opportunity to pick from 10 boxes, each containing a different instant win. The biggest payout you can expect in this feature is 2,000x the bet per line.
Wheel of Fortune Feature
Get three Wheel Bonus Scatters on a payline, beginning from the far-left reel, and you will trigger the Wheel of Fortune Bonus feature.
Here, players get just ONE spin of the Wheel, and a prize determined by the segment that it lands on when the spin stops. It is possible to earn an extra spin by landing the wheel on the starry, orange segment.
The top payout in this Bonus game is 5,000 times the bet per line.
Feline fans will love this game – it has a great sense of humour, lovely graphics and fun gameplay. That is why it has stood the test of time and still remains as one of Play n Go’s classic slots with a cult following, alongside games like Reactoonz. It’s pretty easy stuff to be honest – just aim to land either type of scatter to unlock the bonus rounds and the bigger prizes. Those who like their slots to come with lots of free spins and multipliers will be a little disappointed of course, because Cats and Cash lacks that kind of high volatility fun. But for the rest of us, this game remains a classic we will come back to time and again.
