Looking at the reign of cats on social media, it seems that when it comes to the position of felines in a modern society, not a lot has changed since the Ancient Egyptian civilisation, when these creatures were celebrated as deities.

Out furry four-legged friends have confidently entered the domain of online gaming and a lot of software developers have been catering to those who consider themselves to be cat persons; far be it from us to disrespect dogs, but you are more likely to find slots featuring cats – just saying…

Bearing in mind the metaphor behind the “Fat Cat” expression, NextGen has opted for a simple yet effective visual presentation of the game packed with references of luxury and wealth, thus taking a fun and playful approach to the theme and providing a colourful, charming game with high society cats as the main symbols.

Developer

The story of NextGen starts in 1999 and now, decades later, it is far from coming to an end. Specialised in creating high quality games for online and land based casinos, NextGen justifies their name by trying to exceed themselves with every new release.

Their ultimate goal – highly entertaining slots for the next generation of players, just as their name implies. Wonder Hounds, Lightning Gems, Renegades and Samurai Splits are only some of the NextGen’s most popular launches, proving that the developer has not lost its edge over the years and indicating that we can expect even greater things in the future.

How to Play It

Fat Cat is a 3 rows/5 reels video slot with 20 fixed paylines. The coin value is adjusted manually, through the main menu button placed in the right upper corner. Here, the player will also be able to mute the sounds and select the number of auto spins, starting from 5 to up to 100 uninterrupted spins.

The information about the player’s balance, total bet and the collected winnings will be displayed at the top of the screen and if the player wants to learn about the developer, they will be able to do that by selecting the Home icon to the left.

Symbol combinations are paid left to right, with only the highest combo per line generating payouts – if wins on different paylines occur, they will be added together.

Special Features

Unlocking the bonus features in Fat Cat slot can be a bit of an anticlimax, as the provider did not go further than Free Games and a pretty basic bonus picking game.

The Bonus in-game is activated when the Fat Cat Wild icon appears on reels 1 or 5 and the player is immediately transferred onto a different game screen, filled with Stacks of Cash icons.

The player gets to pick between the random icons, all of which are completely the same, and every pick that reveals two icons with matching cash amount will result in a corresponding payout. During this bonus round, the players can increase their balance significantly, winning multipliers that can potentially increase the triggering bet up to x500.

Free Games are activated when a minimum of 3 Dollar Signs icons land on the reels, awarding up to 10 Free Games and tripling the winnings. The feature can be re-triggered during the already won free spins sessions.

Maximum Payouts

With the theoretical return to player calculated at 96.58%, Fat Cat is a medium variance slot, carrying a potential payout of x500 player’s bet, which is $100,000 if you play with the slot’s highest limit of $200.

The coin value ranges from $0.01 to $10, making the lowest possible wager $0.20. Even if you prefer lower bets, the base game payouts can be pretty generous and cash out up to 6000 coins for a combination of five Fat Cat Wild icons.

Summary

Speaking strictly in a sense of visual achievement, Fat Cat is definitely not a mind spinning slot, even if you are a hard core cat lover.

The gameplay and the winning potential are still sufficient to make every player turn a blind eye to any of the slot’s minor, design-related shortcomings.

Another thing that should be noted are unoriginal bonus features, which can also be forgiven having in mind their frequency rate and the fact that they can be re-triggered. Putting it plainly, Fat Cat is one of those slots that may seem uninspiring at first, but somehow ends up becoming go-to games.
