SlotBeats has crowned Big Time Gaming’s most recent Megaways title, King of Cats, its Slot of the Week.

Nominated for the Slot Collaboration Award at the inaugural CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards, BTG’s title pits two big cats against each other – the lion and puma – whilst also introducing the company’s new mechanic labelled Playerselect, which allows players to switch between two game modes during the base game. 

“King of Cats introduces a whole new way to play. Player Select allows players choice over two very different games,” commented Nik Robinson, CEO at BTG. “Players can dial in an entirely new game at the touch of the alt spin button. King of Cats is smashing it and we couldn’t be happier with the response from players.”

King of Cats Megaways is a six-reel, highly volatile, video slot which holds between two to seven symbols each and can provide players with up to 117,649 ways to win.

The first game mode within the slot is the lion which is set in the African savanna whilst the Puma mode represents the second mode, located deep in a dark jungle full of vines and twisted trees. 

Within the Playerselect feature, players have two spin buttons to choose from – one each for the lion and puma game mode – which players are free to click either one at any time.

In the lion game, a lion wild appears as a 2×2, 3×3, or 4×4-sized tile, carrying a multiplier of x4, x9, or x16. If the player lands a minimum of three scatters, it will award eight free spins. Additionally, when a lion wild appears, the lion wild multipliers increase by either two, five or eight.

Alternatively, if the player selects to play the puma game, up to three fully stacked puma wilds have the potential to appear on each spin. Moreover, each wild has a multiplier attached to the symbol. 

Similar to the lion game, the puma mode includes scatters. If a minimum of three land on the grid, it awards the player with 15 free spins.
