Big Cat Links Slots
If you love fierce feline creatures, Big Cat Links is for you. I don't just mean big house cats either, I'm talking fast predator cats. RealTime Gaming is responsible for this slot, and while they've had a few wild animal themed slots in the past, such as Meerkat Misfits, this is probably the first purely cat themed slot I've encountered. This game is set against the wild plains of Africa and features an expansive, awe-inspiring background. This is a high volatility slot and is played on 50 pay lines across five reels. This game pays out a top award of 50,000x your bet per line. Lions aren't the only feline found on this slot either. The game grid has an African theme. The backdrop displays a variety of different animals native to the African plains. There is a well designed animation where the slot background fades from sunset to twilight. There are several jackpots stacked on the left side of the reels.
The gameplay is fairly straightforward. Like many popular slots, this game employs wilds and scatter symbols, along with oversized symbols, which are represented by a mom and dad lion. If an oversized symbol doesn't directly result in an award, it'll just increase your chances of winning another winning combination instead. Two oversized symbols might even appear at once, occupying 4 to 9 symbol spaces. The oversized symbols can appear as 3x3 or 2x2 too. The wild symbol is represented by a tribal mask, which pays out 500 credits for a match of five., The scatter symbol is the picture of the sunset that displays the bonus directly on it. The wild symbol can substitute for any symbol to complete winning combinations except for the coin and the scatter symbol. The coin symbol speaks for itself, it's a symbol that resembles a coin and helps trigger the Fortune Link Feature.
In terms of premium symbols that are none special, the highest paying symbol is the King of the Jungle symbol. You can pay out 250 credits for a match of five here. The second highest paying symbol is the female lion, which pays out 50 credits, and the third large cat pays out 50 credits for five. The lowest paying symbols are the A,K,J and Q.
The free games mode is triggered when you land three scatters or more while playing this slot. You've probably played through a free games mode before if you've played slots before, but for this game, you can enjoy a batch of free spins and potentially trigger more respins an unlimited number of times. When three or more scatter symbols appear, you can trigger 10 free games. When four or more scatter symbols appear, you'll activate fifteen free games. Lastly, if you trigger five or more scatter symbols, you'll trigger 20 free games. You can claim 5 extra free games when you land three or more scatter symbols while playing your free spin rounds. There is also the Fortune Link feature. You need to land six or more coin symbols to trigger this feature. The coins will remain on the board, and the rest of the symbols will respin, Your goal is to try and land as many coin symbols as possible. Even if you don't land all fifteen positions, you'll still be awarded a nice payout just for triggering the feature. The gold coins are how you land the jackpots, and if you accumulate enough coins you can claim the mini, minor, major or grand jackpot.
