Overview of Lucky Fortune Cat
Released in May Lucky Fortune Cat is the latest release from the game developers at Habanero that looks at the Asian genre. The slot relies on the common theme that sees a lucky white cat being the main character as well as the main symbols. It is true that this slot is a little on the childish side with a cartoonish style when it comes to design but it is still a decent slot that is of good quality as you would expect from this particular gaming team.
Lucky Fortune Cat plays out over a 5x3 reel set and has 28 fixed active pay lines. The slot sits within the high volatility bracket and will pay out wins worth up to 1,200 times your staked. There is a high return to player which stands at 96.72% and you can expect to come across a wild, free spins and re-spins so there is plenty to keep you interested.
Design and Theme
This slot shows that it is designed for the Asian market as there are others that sport a similar theme with lucky cats on the reels and many symbols that are representative for this country. The symbols are vibrant and include a handheld fan, several Anime styled characters which are characters drawn in the Japanese animation genre, Koi fish, bags of money, gold bars and six golden dice. The design is best explained as colourful and happy and there is no doubt that there has been a lot of effort put into creating this slot.
RTP & Bet Levels
When it comes to selecting your bet there are 28 active fixed pay lines and these are all in play at all time and this cannot be changed. There are 28 to 140 coins for you to bet with and you only need to make the decision on how much you wish to spend the minimum bet stands at $0.28 whilst the maximum is a massive $14,000 making this a veritable treat for all the high rollers out there.
Due to the bet range the top jackpot of 1,200x your stake is really rather low particularly as the developer states that this slot has a very high volatility. There are many features on offer which will assist you to land more wins and as we have already mentioned the RTP is an excellent 96.72% and if you play at a Habanero casino you must be aware that the RTP can be lowered to 92.15% or as high as 97.98% so this is something that you must check before you start to play.
There is a useful information button that you will find in the bottom left hand corner of your screen and this will provide you with exact pay out amounts.
Symbols and Ways to Win
To win you need to land at least three of the same symbols on any of your pay lines and unlike many slots you can win on multiple pay lines on every spin.
When it comes to symbols the Lucky Fortune Cat is the most valuable and this is also the wild, however this symbol only pays when you land five and this will award you 53x your bet. The gold bars pay 42.85x your stake for landing five however this is reduced to just 0.7x your bet when you land just three. From this it is easy to deduce that the pay outs in the base game are rather stingy, but this does mean that you should be rewarded with more re-spins in the free bonus spins feature.
Lucky Fortune Cat Bonus Features
There are two features on offer in this slot both of which will see you having to spin your reels again for free when you meet the criteria explained below.
When you land the red doll symbol this symbol locks into place whilst you re-spin the reels, but the doll cannot appear again with the re-spin. If you land a win from the re-spin you are rewarded with 7 free spins. If during these free spins the red doll appears again you will be rewarded with a further 7 free spins with the doll fixing in place. The free spins are limited to a retrigger of three times.
You have the opportunity to use the auto play mode in this slot and the auto play has pre-sets for the spins and various setting to stop the auto play when you land the free spins and so on.
The final feature you have with Lucky Fortune Cat is the chance to play the slot for free. Whilst this may not be considered by some as feature I would put it under this banner as being able to spin the reels and really get to grips with the slot without having to risk any of your own money in my opinion is definitely a feature and one worth shouting about!
The first thing that springs to mind with this slot is that it is a hugely entertaining slot that is a lot of fun to play. However, this slot is not for those who are faint of heart as the high variance is something that may scare some and although the pay outs when they come can be enormous, they are rare and the wins on offer in the base game only count when you land five of the same symbol. Therefore, not only does everything hand on the re-spin but also landing a win on it.
This is not what you would class as a typical slot that many developers would choose to create, and I was pleasantly surprised how the features were activated and how easy it was for me to land re-spins. Although this is a cute slot make no mistake as this can be highly volatile and ruthless and only providing winnings of 1,200x your stake is low considering the risk you take playing this.
