The Catfather Slot

Review by

The beginning of 2016 brought a highly entertaining five-reel 9-payline video slot machine from Pragmatic Play starring the gang of mischievous cats. As homage to the cult movie “The Godfather”, the game is a home to the symbols represented by shady cat mobsters delivering payouts both ways. 

The graphics in bright colours are cartoon-like and crisp followed by smooth animations and dramatic music. The Catfather Slot features multiple rewarding features like expandable wild, free spins and a 4x multiplier helping you hit high payouts. 

However, the most rewarding feature of the online video slot is a win both ways structure which obtains payout whether the symbols line up starting from the first or from the last reel. The top prize is the stunning 5,000 coin jackpot.

Played at 9 fixed paylines, the game offers betting up to 10 coins per line. The coin denomination varies from R0.10 to R5 meaning that you can wager from R0.9 up to R450, and if you are a high-roller don’t give up easily on The Catfather Slot. The regular symbols include the members of the notorious cat gang, among which the highest paying symbol is a ginger cat with a hat and a monocle awarding 200x line bet for having five of a kind on a payline. Low paying symbols are represented by high playing card icons. In order to get a prize, at least three identical symbols in a row must be landed on a line regardless of the direction since the online video slot pays both ways. You can activate the autoplay option by choosing between 10 and 1,000 automatic spins and watch your balance increase.

If you are a superstitious person, stop being one since the black cat brings luck as far as this game is concerned. There are two of them in a cardboard box and they stand for Wild. These are not ordinary cats, as once in a while they hop out of the box and cover the entire reel. During the Wild Night feature triggered randomly, Wild expands on the reels 2, 3 or 4 increasing your odds of winning by completing winning combinations. Apart from substituting for regular symbols, Wild delivers the 5,000 coin jackpot when five of them cover a payline. Another useful symbol is a trapped white mouse with spectacles which represents Scatter. Land three or more of them anywhere on the reels and a series of 10, 15 or 25 free spins is triggered for 3, 4 and 5 Scatters respectively. Besides delivering free spins, the mouse symbol pays 2x, 5x and 20x total bet for 3, 4 and 5 of them at any position. What’s more, during the free spins feature all your wins will be multiplied by 4. If you hit three or more Scatters during the bonus game, you get additional free spins according to the paytable.

You might not love cats, but The Catfather Slot deserves your attention for its highly rewarding features and high-end appearance. Belonging to the new generation of online video slots from former Topgame software provider, its boasts exquisite visuals contributing to the exciting gaming experience. It may seem as if the 9-line structure is not very fruitful, but the win both ways feature compensate for that. Whether you are an iOS, Android or Windows Phone user, you can enjoy the smooth gameplay on the go, try some of the extra features and improve your credits substantially.
