Of all the new mobile pokies games to hit the market this year, cat-themed pokies have been some of the most popular (thanks to all those cute, cuddly and curiously comical cat videos on YouTube). The new Copy Cats pokies, released this morning across all major NetEnt casinos, is sure to enjoy the same level of instant fame.
The new Copy Cats game is a colorful play on kitties, with a superlative feature any avid pokies fan should appreciate. It’s all in the name – Copy Cats – as any stacked cat symbol (including the Wild cat) appearing on the first reel will copy across all cat symbols on the rest of the reels, producing potentially massive wins.
Copy Cats Pokies at NetEnt Casinos
Copy Cats is a new mobile pokies game with 5 reels and 25 paylines. It’s got colorful, cartoon-style graphics, and a jazzy soundtrack to match. The symbols include four cats – red, purple, blue and gold (wild) – along with a cat bell, a wind up mouse, bottle of milk, fish bones, and four multi-colored paw prints in orange, purple, green and blue.
The gold cat is the Wild, and takes the place of all other symbols except the bonus scatter. It won’t multiply winnings, but it can appear stacked on the first reel, unleashing the game’s most rewarding feature.
The Copy Cats feature can be triggered in four ways, whenever one of the four cat symbols appears stacked on reel 1. When this happens, all cat symbols that appear anywhere else on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 will change color to match the cat covering reel 1. If it happens to be the gold wild cat on the first reel, all those extra cats will become wilds too. This feature can be triggered in the base game, as well as free spins.
To activate the free games feature, the player will need to land 3 Cat Bell Bonus Scatters. This symbol can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, and will need to show up on all three of them to trigger 10 free spins. An additional 10 free games can be retriggered during the feature in the same manner.
New Mobile Pokies Profitability
This new cat-themed pokies game just hit NetEnt Casinos today, so I haven’t had a great deal of time to play it, but I did get in some spins this morning. I probably just got lucky, but I have to admit I was impressed.
Based on my own experience, the Copy Cats feature triggers, on average, once in every 22 spins. It was always the colored cats at first, until I triggered the Free Games (after 55 spins). During those, the gold wild cat stacked on the first reel and delivered a nice payout.
The wilds seem to land in abundance during free games, and really paid off for me, as my bankroll was dwindling up until then. By the time the free games were over, I was up almost $25, so I did what any sensible player would do – took the money and ran!
I’m sure I’ll be playing this new mobile pokies game more in the coming weeks. I would definitely recommend Copy Cats, especially to anyone who like cat-themed pokies and plays at NetEnt casinos.
