- Sophisticated graphics & an enjoyable Oriental soundtrack
- Increasing win multipliers for some decent prizes
- Decent symbols values
- Disappointing 94.05% RTP
- Free spins can’t be retriggered
- Max wager unlikely to satiate higher rollers
Hungry Cats is a 5 reel slot from the developer Aspect Gaming. It has 50 fixed paylines, with bets from 0.50 coins, medium volatility and a 95.05% RTP. There’s one bonus feature available, which is for free spins with increasing win multipliers.
Classic China culture gets a feline focus in Hungry Cats, a 2018 video slot from Aspect Gaming. This takes a 5x4 grid formation with 50 fixed paylines.
Below the reels is the user interface, showing the balance, bet options, total bet and win amount from left to right. To the middle left of the reels is the game options menu, and to the right middle of the screen are the spin/autospin buttons. Directly below the reels is also a WINTRACK bar, showing whether you get a base game win, non-win or feature for that spin. In game options you can toggle sound on/off.
There are 10 base game symbols. These include a cat, fish, colourful bird, dish of milk and yellow ball of yarn, plus lower value card symbols 10 through to A. A smiling cat is the wild, substituting all symbols bar the scatter. A white cat with a flower by his ear is the scatter.
It’s not a purr-fect slot, but it certainly has some enjoyable elements that make it worth checking out. If you can feed these hungry furballs, you might just get some tasty prizes coming your way!
Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack
Hungry Cats is both an Oriental and animal themed slot. Each theme appeals in its own right and combining them creates a quirkier, more memorable slot. Aspect Gaming have cultivated a welcoming vibe with this slot that helps transport you to another place, into the heart of this Oriental property with cute cats galore, so it's mesmerising to settle into whether you're a feline fan or not.
The backdrop is a beautiful room inside a traditional home in China, with a sofa, floral wall art, a window letting in glimpses of light, and flower decor. The reels themselves are outline in gold and gems, with symbols backdropped against red satin. The symbols themselves are vibrant and although done in a cartoon style, they have realistic detail. The aesthetics overall have a rich golden, leafy Oriental vibe that’s both calming and warming. An upbeat Oriental soundtrack accompanies gameplay to enhance the atmosphere.
Hungry Cats RTP & Volatility
The developer states a 94.05% RTP for this slot, which is rather disappointing as we’d hope to see around 96% for such a themed offering. It’s also medium volatility, so there could be some variation in terms of payout frequency and amount. Prizes are unlikely to be as frequent as low variance slots, but they’re probably more average in size; while there aren’t going to be huge prizes on offer, they should be relatively appealing as symbol values here are fairly decent.
How to Play Hungry Cats
1. To place a bet, click the arrows next to ‘Bet Per Line’ to open a pop-up of wager options.
2. Select your bet, which will make the wager options disappear and return you to the game.
3. Hit spin!
4. Autospin is also available, as is fast mode via the game options.
Bet Sizes & Paytable Wins
Bets start from 0.01 per line on 50 paylines for a minimum 0.50 wager, which is a bit high compared to similar slots for the casual players. The maximum bet is 0.25 per line for a top 12.50 wager, which is unlikely to be grand enough for the higher rollers.
Payline wins are multiplied by the wager per payline and all symbols pay for 3 or more.
* The most valuable is the cat, worth 500x for 5-of-a-kind, down to 40x for 3.
* Next is the fish, worth 300x for 5 and 40x for 3.
* The lowest paying symbol is the 10, at 60x for 5-of-a-kind down to 2x for 3.
Hungry Cats Bonus Features
Free Spins - 3 scatters on reels 2 to 5 triggers the free games feature, at which point a rebel will appear. Click the cat to spin this wheel, which will tell you how many free games you’ll get, being either 7, 12 or 15. With each free spin, the multiplier award will bump up by 1. It starts at x1, so the next will be x2, and so on. Free spins can’t be retriggered during this feature.
The graphics and sound are confident and cultivate a warm sense of traditional China at home, with felines to keep you company. It’s a pleasure to look at and simple to navigate, so it’s an easy pick-up-and-play slot.
The game having only one feature may seem a little dry to those that prefer a more multi-faceted slot to keep things interesting and it’s a shame that more free spins can’t be retriggered during the round. However, we like the increasing multiplier and the ability to get up to 15 free spins when you enter the feature, allowing for some potentially decent prizes. Moreover, the values of the symbols for winning combinations aren't too shabby either. That said, the RTP is rather disappointing, which, in tandem with the higher minimum stake and medium volatility, could turn away some of the casual players seeking quick, frequent prizes as they keep their own outlay low.
