When you hear the term 'copycat' it's often used in a negative light, saying that you're imitating someone's behavior. When I was a kid, this was a hot insult to call someone. Swedish casino game developer NetEnt must not be fully in on the insult, as they have created the Copy Cats slot, which takes this saying in a completely different direction. Instead of children copying behaviors, the game instead focuses on colorful felines that look to cause mischief and create some big wins for those spinning the reels.
Copy Cats is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that is set in a friendly suburb. The game's artwork is bright and cheery, giving players an uplifted mood as they risk their money for the chance to win big. The symbols in the game include cat food in the colors blue, green, purple, and orange as well fish bones, milk, a toy mouse, a blue cat, pink cat, and red cat. A bell serves as the slot's scatter symbol, while a golden cat behind a yarn ball serves as the game's wild symbol.
Features in the game include the above-mentioned wilds and scatters. Free Spins, stacked wilds, and stacked symbols are also present. A copy cat feature also is present, which can see a like symbol copied on other cat symbols across the slot's 5 reels. This feature is set off when a full reel of one symbol is found on the reel. This has to be on the first reel, as it then wipes across. It's a pretty impressive feature, and I can vouch that it can lead to some big wins.
These features, as well as the game's layout in terms of paylines combine to give Copy Cats a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.8%. This is extremely competitive for an online slot, and theoretically means that you'll lose your money slower here.
I spent about a half hour playing Copy Cats, and I can say this is a much better slot than I initially thought. When you hit the copy cat feature, the game really does take on a personality of its own, and its unlike anything I can recall seeing from a video slot. The title is very enjoyable experience. I highly recommend you give this a go if you're looking for a new game to test out. It's "purrrfect" for a short session.
