Top Cat is one of Blueprint Gaming’s first forays into the franchise slot market. This is a slot machine game which is based on the hit cartoon of the same name, and one which is a part of the Jackpot King progressive jackpot network that they run. Cartoony and quirky in nature, most players will find Top Cat an appealing slot game to play.
Look and feel
Top Cat features a host of loveable and likeable characters from the hit cartoon, including Benny, Brains, Choo, Officer Dibble and Spook. It also contains a few high playing card icons, which are understandably worth less to the player than the more thematic character symbols.
Cartoony is the best way to describe the style and setup of the Top Cat slot machine game. Expect to find big and bold images, with a trash can doubling as a spin button. Players can keep tabs on the value of the progressive jackpot above the reels of this slot.
Players are not going to be able to alter any of the 20 paylines which star in the Top Cat slot, although they can select various wagers via the total bet button. At its cheapest, the Top Cat slot is going to cost players 20p a spin. At its costliest, it can set players back around about £500 per spin. For their wagers, players can try and bag a progressive jackpot via the Jackpot King network.
Crowns are collected on the reels of the game, and the more crowns a player bags, the better a total bet multiplier becomes. Over time, this allows them to select a King’s Treasure prize, and one of those prizes could be the Wheel King bonus, which could trigger the network’s progressive jackpot.
Wild symbols appear as fish bone platters. These symbols can offer substantial non-progressive wins when they appear in winning combinations, as well as substitute or all other symbols in the slot save for bonus icons.
Bonus symbols crop up as the Top Cat gang. These symbols can only appear on the first, third and fifth reels of the slot, but they can trigger a Master Plan feature, which offers one of 5 Tip Top bonuses.
In the Fancy Fancy Hot Dog Respins bonus, players can land a giant hot dog wild on the fifth reel, followed by a re-spin. After each spin, the wild reel moves one reel to the left. In the Cash Picker bonus, players can choose from numerous bins to pocket instant cash prizes. The Maharaja Heist bonus is a trail bonus and it is two-tiered. The Construction Site Wilds bonus sees sticky Top Cat wilds appear on the reels. The more a player collects, the better their wins become and the greater the number of free spins they can claim. There are also two additional free spin features. Diner Free Spins offers unlimited free games until all tickets have fallen off the reels, whilst Dibble’s Free Spins promises free spins with special wilds (two wilds can collide to produce a wild reel).
Four randomly triggered bonus features are also present in this slot. These include Choo’s Piano Wilds, which offers random wilds, Brain’s Water Wilds, which offers wild reels, Benny’s Colossal TV bonus which can see mystery symbols added to the reels, and Spook’s Mice is Nice bonus, which shuffled symbols result in guaranteed wins.
