Forget about Big Wins, what you want is Big Meows!
That’s what it says when you have a big…meow.
Thunderkick has shown some great promise with the recent releases of Flame Busters and Pink Elephants. In fact, Pink Elephants was even nominated for the 2017 Best Slots Award.
This slot doesn’t have the same kind of potential as the last couple releases, but it makes sense to mix it up a bit with some lower variance. The max win on Not Enough Kittens is 3650x which is not bad, but not even half the max win potential of Pink Elephants.
Not Enough Kittens is a video slot with 5 reels and 35 fixed pay lines. The game features double symbols and a bonus game with free spins and retriggers. The theoretical return to a player is 96.1%.[table “24” not found /]
It did feel more like a medium volatile slot to us when we tried it out for this review with quite low payouts in the base game. A 28x “Big Meow” celebration is a tell tale sign if anything of this.
Graphically it is a stunnig slot, maybe one of the better looking we’ve seen in a while. The music is great as well going in to the bonus in particular! It’s a bit confusing keep track of what cat is what symbol as some of them look quite similar to each other.
As seen in the image above, the cats can come two at a time, doubling the win. If you get 10 black cats, which is the highest paying symbol, you will be awarded a 100x win.A single cat symbol will double in a pay line that includes a wild symbol. The wild symbol can come in pairs as well and it’s possible to land 10 wilds and a 100x win.
The wild symbol substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter symbol. In the Bonus game, all wilds are stacked. A wild symbol in a pay line including a cat symbol is always counted as a double wild symbol.
Get 3 or more scatters to trigger the Bonus game consisting of free spins. The amount of free spins awarded depends on the number of scatters. There are two kinds of scatter symbols – a single scatter symbol and a double scatter symbol. It is possible to land a maximum of 6 scatter symbol (double scatters on reel 1, 3 and 5) which will reward you with 25 free spins.
Playing the game for about 50 minutes we managed to trigger the bonus around 5-7 times (a whole lot of quickspins included). It didn’t seem too hard to retrigger in the bonus and once we had 2 retriggers with a total of 30 spins in the bonus. Despite this we never managed to get any decent wins. The biggest win during our test round was about 60x. This is of course too small of a sample to draw any conclusions, but just to give you an idea.
The slot is indeed very charming and cute, but having such an awful test round we kind of stopped laughing after a while. We believe this is a slot people will try out a few times just for the laughter, and we’re sure there will be some fun times in the casino streaming community, but this won’t go down as a classic.
This doesn’t mean it is a bad game by any means! Not Enough Kittens is a great production in every sense, but if you’re into high variance, this won’t naturally won’t be your cup of tea. In short – works for some relaxing times, won’t likely work quite as well if your ambition is massive cashouts. We admit we could be wrong though. The game is available on Casumo so find out yourself![table “24” not found /]
