Fly Cats Dream Drop: Slot Overview

If you're wearing a cap, you best be turning it backwards for this one, folks. The reason for getting all 'with it' and 'hip' is Fly Cats Dream Drop from Relax Gaming. It's a hip-hop-themed addition to the studio's expanding range of Dream Drop jackpot slots (a non-Dream Drop version is also available), so jackpots are the name of the game around here. Oh, and cats. Yes, lotsa cats are going to be accompanying hopeful players as they spin their way through a progressive jackpot slot with a planned top prize of €10 million.

With the Statue of Liberty in the background, New York City appears to be the setting for Fly Cats Dream Drop, which some have called the birthplace of hip-hop music. In fact, history.com pinpoints the time to August 11, 1973, in the Bronx at a birthday party. If you wish to dispute that assertion, please feel free, but whenever it was birthed, hip-hop has thrived in the decades since to become one of the most popular forms of music on the planet. Despite its popularity, it came relatively late to the online slot world, though it has recently gained significant traction. Fly Cats Dream Drop makes a solid case for hip-hop's use. The game's urban world setting bursts with life and attitude, even if (or because) its protagonists are of the feline variety.

Fly Cats slots - base game

Just as cats have their moods, so does Fly Cats Dream Drop, which is a highly volatile online slot producing two RTP models depending on the version you take on. The Fly Cats Dream Drop version has a default return to player figure of 94%, rising to 96.17% on the non-jackpot version. Buy either of the bonus rounds, and the figure increases further, and all stats can be verified in the info section. Bet selection on both games starts at 20 p/c per spin and goes as high as $/€100.

The gaming takes place on a 5-reel, 4-row grid set-up with 40 fixed paylines for the regular line wins to land across. On the less profitable side of the paytable are the four card suits, while at the upper end are four kitty characters. Landing a 5-of-a-kind win pays 1 times the bet for all of the card suits or 6 to 15 times the bet for the cat premiums. Wu-Tang-looking 'W' wild symbols land on all reels and can substitute for any pay symbols or award up to 15 times the bet for a five wild winning line.

Fly Cats Dream Drop: Slot Features

Whilst the Dream Drop is no doubt the top cat around here, other features to get to grips with in Fly Cats Dream Drop are the Mystery Respins feature, free spins, and, in the non-DD version 2, feature buys.

Mystery Respins

Hitting a question mark Mystery symbol in the base game triggers the Mystery Respin feature. Mystery symbols become sticky while all other positions respin. Only blanks or Mystery symbols can land, and hitting new Mystery symbols locks them while awarding further respins. When the feature ends, the Mystery symbols in view all reveal the same pay symbol for a win evaluation.

Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters in the base game awards 6, 8, or 10 free spins, respectively. Wilds from the triggering spins are carried over to the bonus round. Wilds in free spins lock in place on the grid until the round ends. In addition, each time a bonus scatter lands, an extra free spin is awarded, plus the multiplier on each sticky wild increases by +1, up to x3.

Bonus Buy

When playing Fly Cats without the Dream Drop attached, it is possible to buy two features. These are the Sticky Wild Free Spins (RTP 96.55%) for 45 times the bet or the Mystery Respin Feature (RTP 96.5%) for 10x the bet.

Dream Drop

On any spin, at random, a basketball may be tossed at a basketball hoop. If the ball goes in the hoop, the Dream Drop feature activates. Once in, 15 cans of paint then appear on the screen for players to click, one at a time. Clicked paint cans reveal a jackpot, and when 3 of the same jackpot is revealed, the associated prize is awarded. Seed values for the Rapid, Midi, Maxi, Major, or Mega jackpots are €1, €5, €100, €25,000, or €500,000, respectively.

Fly Cats Dream Drop: Slot Verdict

Hip hop cats might sound weird, but Fly Cats Dream Drop does have precedence. Not too long before Fly Cats Dream Drop hit the desk, Relax Gaming had merged animals and funky tunes in an earlier game called Top Dawg$, which meant business with a high-performance sticky multiplier wild bonus round as its main event. Top Dawg$ could go ballistic in the right circumstances, with a circa 25,000x the bet win cap in place to stop it going right mental.

Leaving the jackpots aside for a moment, Fly Cats Dream Drop or its non-Dream Drop counterpart will never get to those levels of mental. A much reduced 5,000x the bet win cap sees to that. The bonus round, as a whole, felt a lot tamer than Top Dawg$'s did, and while sticky wilds with multipliers are the main attraction, it doesn't mean they will land in great numbers, nor that their multipliers will be increased, or that they will even land at all. No doubt, exciting stuff is technically possible from the free spins feature, but it just didn't have the same dangerous, anything-goes atmosphere of its canine counterpart. It's as if Relax Gaming is shooting for a broader audience with Fly Cats, perhaps, one which would prefer a relatively dialled-back experience.

It feels funny to say that about a jackpot slot of Dream Drop's magnitude, though, and as a vehicle for the studio's progressive network, Fly Cats Dream Drop brings something new to the table. While hip-hop slots have spiked since Nolimit City dazzled with East Coast vs West Coast, they haven't really been associated with major jackpots. Well, that gap in the market has effectively been filled by Fly Cats Dream Drop. It's not the most hair-raising, white-knuckle exciting hip-hop slot around; the previously two mentioned games outdo it for sheer joyful gaming. But, Fly Cats Dream Drop has something they don't, namely monstrous jackpot winning potential, where, if all goes well, up to the tune of €10 million. Ten million big ones would sure buy a whole lot of kitty litter.

Good

Fly Cats gets bounced by other big-name hip-hop slots, but the Dream Drop jackpots provide an alluring attraction that those other games don’t have.
