Betting is flexible in this game. You can choose between 10 and 25 pay lines to place a wager on. The minimum bet per line is .02 coins, and the maximum bet per line is four coins. This makes the minimum bet per round .20 coins and the maximum bet per round 100 coins.
The wild symbol is labelled as such in this game. It substitutes for all characters and symbols except for the bonus symbol, which activates free spins. The main character is the suave male cat with a moustache. If you spin two to five of him on a pay line, you win between .50 and 10 coins.
The other high-value characters earn you between .30 and five coins depending on the character and the multiple spun. You must spin three or more to trigger a win. These are the other top-value characters from highest to lowest value:
There are also low-value symbols. You must spin three to five of them on a pay line to win. Low-value symbols are worth as little as .10 coins or as much as two coins depending on the multiple spun and the symbol. From top to bottom value, they include:
This special feature is unique to Cat Scratch Fever. When one symbol fills the first, second or third reel, the neighbouring reels appear to be scratched by cat claws. They are then filled with stacked random symbols. If any stacked symbols match the first stacked reel, you land a massive win. The win amount varies based on your bet level and the symbol.
The bonus symbol in this game is labelled as such and is the equivalent of a scatter. You must spin nine of these symbols on one game screen to trigger the bonus game. You win between 18 and 30 free spins, and the special cat scratch feature comes into play during all bonus rounds as well.
Novomatic’s signature gamble feature is included with this slot. When you land a win on a pay line, you have the option to click collect or gamble. Collecting it adds it to your balance. Gambling it gives you a 50 percent chance of doubling the current win if you can guess the colour of a face-down card correctly.
You can gamble for several rounds to give you the chance to quadruple your win or raise it even more. For example, imagine that you win 20 coins from the regular game. If you choose to gamble it and win, you earn 40 coins to collect or gamble. If you gamble again and win, the 40 coins is doubled to 80 coins. This continues until you lose the current win, collect or max out the gambling rounds.
To spin the reels automatically until you reach a win, click the autoplay feature. The autoplay feature is simple and does not allow you to pick a number of rounds or a loss maximum. Click stop to exit auto mode.
You can adjust the casino sounds by clicking the speaker icon, and you can turn off the background music by clicking the music note icon.
