Crazy city cats soon in the spotlights in NetEnt’s Copy Cats™ video slot
In a few days, Thursday the 11th of May, the Scruffy Duck™ slot will become available at the NetEnt Casinos. Meanwhile, NetEnt already confirmed the launch of the Copy Cats™ slot on the 23rd of May. The two upcoming NetEnt slots have a lot in common as both will be about animals while cartoon-themed. Keep on reading what else to expect from the Copy Cats™ video slot that will be launched in two weeks time featuring Free Spins, Bonus symbols, Wild substitutions, Stacked symbols, Stacked Wilds and the Copy Cats feature.
Copy Cats™ slot preview
While the Scruffy Duck™ slot is already available at several NetEnt Casinos like Mr Green and LeoVegas, the Copy Cats™ video slot won’t be available before the official launch date. This means that another two weeks are left for the crazy city cats to hit the spotlights bringing some jazzy action to the reels.
Cartoon-themed, the Copy Cats™ video slot has a lot in common with the Scruffy Duck™ slot which has been inspired by the famous fairytale The Ugly Duckling. The inspiration source for the Copy Cats™ video slot? The iGaming industry is plagued by copycats, those who are too lazy to write original content or come up with an original video slot theme themselves. But I don’t think NetEnt is easily inspired by these type of copy cats so the next thing that came to my mind is Disney’s The Aristocats, a story I’ve been appreciating as a child, as well as a grown-up. It’s therefore that I’ve seen the movie many times over the years, making it hard to forget that one scene with the jazzy cats.
The scene starts with the jazzy city cats having a normal colour, but along the way, the disco lights are turning all of them in colourful jazzy cats, just as the cats in the spotlights in the Copy Cats™ video slot.
Whatever the inspiration source is, NetEnt again dit a great job bringing an original video slot to the NetEnt Casinos. A jazzy sound can be heard throughout the game and will bring you in the best spirit possible. And a positive spirit can end up in some very positive wins while a new and innovative slot feature will keep you captivated for sure.
Copy Cats™ slot features
It’s obvious that you can look forward to four coloured cats on the reels with the golden cat in the role of Wild. The more golden cats on the reels, the more Wilds and the better your winning chances will be. As usual, the Wild replaces every other symbol in this upcoming NetEnt slot, although I don’t think the Bonus symbols are involved.
Wilds are pretty standard in a video slot, so let me continue with a new type of slot excitement, a brand new slot feature which can only be invented by NetEnt. The Copy Cats feature is a slot feature I haven’t seen in any video slot yet and it seems that it’ll be activated when the first reel is filled with the same cat symbols, no matter what colour. This is called a Stacked symbol and these are the ones you’ll look out for when playing the Copy Cats™ video slot. If a Stacked symbol appears on reel one, all cats on all reels will be copied, becoming exactly the same as the cats on reel 1. The more cats on the reels, the bigger the win will be.
Another symbol to hope for is the bonus symbol of which three are enough to activate Free Spins. You’ll receive 10 Free Spins in which a Stacked symbol will appear in each free spins. This simply means that all 10 free spins offer the Copy Cats feature.
