    Astro Cat Online Casino Slot

    There is a wide variety of cat and Oriental-themed online casino slots out there, each with their own take on either cats or the Far East. So what happens if you combine both these influences into a single online slot? Well, you get Astro Cat, a visually and mentally enticing game that features Japanese symbols, a Hello Kitty-like cat-theme, and a calming soundtrack to rest your tired nerves from the toils of the day.

    Lightning Box has designed an unusual game that has a never-seen-before reel structure. At first, it could confuse you with its complexity, but don’t fear, we’re here to elaborate on that. Astro Cat has the standard 5 reels, but adds three extra reels to make it more adventurous. This increases the reels but also your chances, with astonishing 1296 ways to win. It basically has a 4×4 central reel grid, with an additional 3×2 grid on each side.

    Astro Cat Slot – Design and Audio

    If you haven’t seen it already, it is a bit hard to explain how much was put into the design of this game. There are more than just the standard Asian or Japanese influences; there’s Koi carps, ornamental frogs, dragons, fireworks, fans, bonsai trees and a Wild with an almost Buddhist-looking cat. And then there’re your standard slot symbols, like playing card suits. The reels in Astro Cat are housed under a traditional Japanese roof and are placed in front of a night-time, star-lit backdrop, illuminated by the light of the moon.

    The audio portion of the game is what you’d normally expect from a game that is so Oriental. And, although there are many influences on the game, the audio stays mostly Chinese or Japanese. The music creates a calming environment and the sound effects are equally entertaining and fit the animations perfectly. It is clear that the same attention has been paid to the sound effects as to the visuals.

    Gameplay & Features

    Astro Cat has the Maneki Neko Astro Cat as its Wild symbol, which appears solely on reels 3 and 4, substituting for all other symbols but the Scatter (the fireworks symbol).

    The Reelfecta reel, the central reel of the slot, will allow you to form winning combinations with all of the 16 symbols, but with the exception that each symbol can only be used once. It sounds complicated but becomes easier as you play more

    In order to trigger free spins, you need to land 5 firework Scatter symbols and will receive the maximum amount of 12 free spins, with the Wilds staying locked in place. During the free spins, a Reelfecta position may become a Wild symbol or a poison icon. The Wilds will stay locked in place during the spins, with the poison icons ending the bonus round. Lucky players who turn all outer reels Wild receive a Mega spin, with the entire Reelfecta becoming Wild. If you then happen to land 3 more Scatters, you will receive 5 more free spins.

    Astro Cat also has a gamble bonus round, which will let you gamble your wins in a game of cards. Just click the hearts/clubs icon and you can guess if the next card is either red or black to double your wins. You can also guess the correct card suit to quadruple your wins.

    Summary

    Astro Cat is an online casino slot made for everybody though it looks like you need an engineering degree to play it. Don’t be intimidated; it is both enjoyable and entertaining and will give you a great time.
