Game Rules

Cat Queen

5-Reel, 40-Line SlotStacked Wilds Appear on All Reels!

5-Reel 40-Line Slots

The aim of the main game in Cat Queen online casino slot is to match symbols on paylines from left to right across the reels.

To Play the Game:

  • Begin by choosing your Line Bet. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Box on the bottom of the screen.
  • Select the Number of Lines you would like to play. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Box at the bottom of the screen. You can play between 1 and 40 paylines. When you press the +/- button the paylines will appear on the screen. You can also choose your paylines by selecting from one of the numbers on the sides reels. Please be aware: selecting a number activates all paylines below that number as well. For example, selecting 37 from the side of the reels will also activate lines 1-36.
  • The Total Bet (which is taken from your balance from each spin) is calculated as Number of Lines x Bet per Line. If you wish to spin the reels at the Maximum Number of Lines at your chosen Bet per Line, select the Bet Max Button.
  • When you have chosen your Total Bet, select the Spin Button to spin the reels and start the Cat Queen online slot game.
  • If you wish you can use the Autoplay Function to set a predetermined number of spins (10 -99) at your chosen bet to play through consecutively. Select the Autoplay Button and choose the number of spins you wish to play. This can be stopped at any time by pressing the Stop Button. You can also set the Autoplay feature to play through until the Bonus Feature has been awarded.
  • If wish to play the game more rapidly you can select the Turbo Mode function from the bottom right of the screen. This will speed up the actions of the reels spinning and winning animations.
  • All winning symbol combinations and their values are displayed in the Paytable. For the purpose of payouts all Line Wins are x Line Bet, whereas Scatter Wins are x Total Bet.
  • Only the highest win is paid on each active payline. In the case of multiple wins on different paylines, these are added together and paid as a Total Win.
  • When a winning spin occurs, the win(s) will be highlighted on the reels and the cash that will be paid to you is displayed in the Win Box on the bottom centre of the screen.

Info Page:

Selecting the Info Button from the bottom left of the screen will open up the Info Pages, which includes the Paytable and Bonus information. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable Page – displays the winning symbol combinations and their values (which are multiplied by Line Bet).

Free Games Page – gives information on the Free Games Bonus.

Double Page – gives information on the Double Feature.

Paylines Page – displays animated graphics of the paylines and their positions on the reels.

To navigate around the Info Pages use the arrows at the bottom of the screen. To exit and return to the main reels, select Back.

Paylines:

Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to register as a win. Only active paylines can register wins for the standard symbols. The Scatter Bonus Symbol is an exception to this rule and will be discussed below.

You can view the paylines by clicking on the +/- buttons below the Lines Box, or by loading the Paylines Info Page.

Please Note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount wagered on a single line, the Total Bet is the Line Bet x Number of Lines. The Total Bet is the amount you wager for every spin.

About Payouts:

All payouts are displayed on the Paytable Page. The Paytable will show the amount of coins paid for a matching symbol win.

As you can play up to 40 paylines multiple wins are common, these are added together and paid as a Total Win.

Only the highest win is paid on each payline. In the event of coinciding wins on the same payline you will be paid for whichever has the highest value.

All winning combinations featuring standard symbols must begin on reel 1. They must be in an unbroken chain of at least 3 symbols running left to right across the reels. The Scatter Symbol does not need to be on a payline to pay.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by the Cat Queen – can substitute for all other standard symbols to help form winning combinations. The Wild Symbol does not substitute for the Bonus Scatter Symbol.

The Wild Symbol appears stacked across all reels in the Free Games Bonus, thus it can often lead to multiple wins on different paylines.

If you match 3 or more Wild Symbols it can form its own standalone win with a unique cash value. Matching 5 Wild Symbols across the reels is considered as the jackpot win for a single payline.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Pyramid Symbol – does not need to be on a payline to be considered active.

If you land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on screen you will win a cash amount and activate the Free Games Bonus.

The cash awards for the Scatter Symbol are displayed in the Paytable. These are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Free Games:

When you land 3 or more Scatter Symbol anywhere on the game reels the Free Games Bonus will be awarded. In the Free Game Bonus:

  • You will be awarded 15 Free Games, as well as the initial cash prize for 3 or more Scatter Symbols.
  • You are taken to a new screen with an enhanced reel set. The Wild Symbol appears stacked across all reels.
  • You can win 15 more Free Games again and again in the same manner as the triggering win.
  • Once all Free Games have been played you are returned to the main game. A Total Win will be displayed on the screen.
  • The bet for Free Games is the same as the triggering bet. This cannot be adjusted.
  • If you have triggered the Free Games Bonus when in Autoplay mode, you must select Start to begin the Free Games Feature. You can resume or reset the Autoplay after the Free Games Bonus has finished.

Double:

After any win on Cat Queen online casino slots you can use the Double Feature to potentially increase your winnings. After a win:

  • The Double Button will become active and flash.
  • If you select the Double Button you will be taken to a new screen, where you will be faced with 5 playing cards face down. You will be prompted to Collect, Double Half or Double.
  • If you select Double the first card on the left will be turned over to reveal its value – this is the Dealer’s card. You must choose one of the other four cards to hopefully reveal a card higher in value than the Dealer’s card.
  • A correct guess will double your initial winnings.
  • An incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings and end the Double Feature.
  • Revealing a card of the same value as the dealer’s will result in a tie. Your initial winnings will be returned to you and you can elect to Double again or Collect.
  • Double Half works the same way as Double, except you protect half your winnings and gamble the other half.
  • You can keep doubling until the Maximum Double Limit has been reached, or you guess incorrectly.
  • You can press Collect at any time to exit the Double Feature with your winnings. However, you can only Collect when the Dealer’s card has not yet been revealed.

Please Note: The Double Feature is not available during Free Games or when Autoplay is being used.
