Cats and cash (PlaynGo) Online Slot Review

Recently Play’n Go flopped with their ‘Legacy of Egypt’ slot release as players noticed it was really just a reskin of ‘Montezuma’ which is really disappointing from Play’n go as Monte isn’t even their release. But they are back with not a new game, but a remake of their slot ‘Cats and Cash’. This game was originally released back in 2012, over 6 years ago which is crazy. The game didn’t really hit the market with a bang back then but now it could become a big hit 6 years later. The slot is being released 5th July on all casino sites.

Cats and cash (PlaynGo) Online Slot Review

cats and cash base game

So the slots theme reminds me of an American game show like the wheel of fortune or even a pimped out version of  Deal or no deal. The design is very colorful but childish which is common in Play’n go’s slots. The base game doesn’t seem to pay out as much as you would think as of how many scatters land on reels.  Because there are 2 features which you can land in the base game it is difficult to even land a decent lineup. So really you are paying more for the features than the base game.


casts and cash symbols

So this slot doesn’t have lower symbols such as J, Q and K etc. It has different cat symbols as the lower symbols which is very interesting but goes with the slots fun theme. There are only 7 symbols in total not including scatters. Which would make you think it would be easier to get a little line up wins. But that isn’t the case as the scatters tend to block a lot of lineups when teasing which can be frustrating as it tends to cause a lot of dead spins. Which will drain your balance unless you get a feature quick. The higher symbols are money related and do not have a border like the lower paying ones. There is a wild symbol which is the cat host in a gold border.

Wheel of fortune

To unlock this feature you need to land 3 wheel scatters on any reels. When you get the feature you will need to spin the wheel. If you land on any numbers which have stars on you will be rewarded a coin value. These values will vary on your bet size of course but will be similar multipliers for all bet sizes. If you land on a coin value with stars you will get a re-spin and will keep getting them until you land on a normal coin value. So really you could get a decent amount of spins if you are lucky.

Pick a gift

To unlock this feature you need to land 3 present scatters on any reels. This feature is a standard pick and click. So you get to pick your own box then start clicking the rest of the boxes to reveal coin values. After you have opened them all you will open the box you originally picked.

Overall I like Play’ngo are giving this slot a second chance by reconstructing it after 6 years. It is a fun colourful slot but I just don’t see the potential. I would say low- medium volatility. The wheel of fortune feature can just be a dud unless you get a couple of respins and the pick and click can just have bad coin values. It just depends what coin values the game is willing to give you. The base game doesn’t pay much as most of the tike symbols are blocked by scatters.
