Big Win Cat is a game that would be considered a classic pokie by many, based purely on its use of 3 reels, rather than the more common 5 reel titles of the online gaming world.
You get certain aspects of it that are much more easily found in modern games though, and I think that it’s a pokie that will appeal to pretty much all players. You get a Chinese theme for one, which is unusual enough for a 3-reel game. The quality is also very high for its design, and that’s another side of the game that is hard to find in a regular 3-reel title.
The symbols that have been selected for the game will show cute baby animals or Chinese objects, so you see things like the white cat, piglets, fish or turtles, right alongside images of hammers, hand fans, gold coins or money bags.
About 100 or so games have been released so far by Play n Go, in the more than 12 years since they’ve become an independent company. They’ve been running for longer than that though, being a subsidiary for another company at the end of the 90s.
They caught most of the history of the online gambling market, and they created some impressive pokies for it. As you can see in Big Win Cat, they try to do things better than the average developer launching a 3 reel pokie.
How To Play It
Selecting a wager in this game is a matter of clicking on a bet value that is listed at the bottom, nothing more. The wager will cover all 5 lines that the game uses, and it runs within a betting range of $0.05 to $100. With 5 lines covered, the line bet varies between $0.01 and $20.
The 3×3 reels that were used here get 5 fixed pay lines. These are typical for a classic pokie, so the part that is different comes from the features that are implemented.
The most typical feature for a pokie would probably be the wild symbol, and this game has implemented it as well, even though it has other cooler things as well to offer. The wild symbol sports the image of the White Cat, which is supposed to be lucky. Having three appear on one of the lines gets you a cash prize, which has a maximum value of $1,600. With just one or two Cats participating in a combo, they are going to be used as substitutes and the reward will be based on the regular symbols which are also part of the action.
A Fortune Wheel feature will trigger if the player ever gets three full reels occupied by the same matching symbol, by itself or with wilds part of it as well. This would bring you five combinations of the same type, while the Fortune Wheel spins to bring you a multiplier for the total prize. Up to 10x can be applied to the wins.
If only two out of the three reels are occupied by matching symbols, then the game will offer you a Respin, as a second chance to get the third reel covered as well. The other two reels lock in place, while the third one spins for free.
The game’s best winning combination gives you $1,600 normally. With 10x multipliers and 5 combinations formed in the same round, you can get to a prize of $80,000 that is obtained as a result of a single spin.
Big Win Cat has the potential to be a favorite for a lot of players that normally go for the 3 reel pokies. It’s much better looking than those games though, and it has a unique feature to propose as well.
