The Copy Cats slot was retired by NetEnt in 2020. That’s a shame, as we enjoyed this game! Still, they have some great games in their range like Spinsane and Aloha. try them out at the casinos above.
This is an archive of the game review.
If you’re a cat lover, then you would have hit the jackpot with NetEnt’s Copy Cats slot, a light-hearted slot that celebrated all the adventures and pitfalls of being a modern-day cat about town!
Here you joined a gang of street cats as they rampage the dustbins and back alleys of a city. This is a slot that was packed with enough features to keep you purring all the way to the bank!
Look and Feel
This was a happy-go-lucky slot with attitude to match the stealth of a feline gang prowling the town. The cats in question were a selection of cute cartoony creatures with goofy grins and “stroke me” eyes. We’d put the graphics up there with the likes of the Legend of Shangri-La slot although they were more classic cartoony.
We were here in cat land- the back streets and rooftops with the reels set amongst buildings and a bright blue sky. The reels were framed in a type of signpost, topped with the game’s title. The graphics were good with the looks of a TV cartoon- all bright bubble-gum colours and good fun too.
The game’s soundtrack was a winner with a jaunty, breezy, jazzy vibe and some great brass sounds tooting away to get you spinning those reels with feline skill.
Copy Cats was a three-row, five-reel and 25 pay-line slot that was as bright and vibrant as the Flux slot machine, just with more cats in it!
The dudes worth the dosh were the cast of pussy cats and their favourite accessories. You had to keep your eyes open for a red cat, presumably the gang’s leader with a surprising pair of bushy eyebrows and the grin of a gameshow host!
Then there was the cutie- a bright pink puss with big eyes and the grump of the game: a blue cat with a scowl.
Keeping those felines in check was a wind-up mouse, a bottle of milk and a leftover fish skeleton. The low-value icons were a selection of four coloured paw prints orange, pink, green and blue.
The game’s Wild was the shy member of the gang, a golden cat, hiding behind a ball of wool.
The all-important bonus icon was a pussy cat’s collar and bell.
There were a few nifty elements to this feline fun! First off you could set the level of slot play that you wanted from 1- 10 using an easy-to-click button.
Stacking up the Good Times!
The main event was the Copy Cat feature. This was a super cool feature that was triggered by one of the cast of cats becoming stacked on reel one. Once this happened, all the other cats on the reels turned into the same cat as that on reel one, making the chances of winning big more likely. If you had triggered the feature with that shy Golden Wild then all those other cats became Wilds- a big puss plus for this game.
If you like your slots with more Free Spins than you can shake a paw at, then landing three of the bonus icons on reels 1,3, and 5 got you ten free spins
And there was more, as this is one of those slots that just kept giving. You could re-trigger the Copy Cat feature during the Free Spins mode with the bonus symbols giving you even more free spins if Lady Meow was smiling upon you!
NetEnt created a fun frolic of a slot with Copy Cats- it’s the brightest thing we’d seen on the small screen since the Bloopers slot from ELK Studios. If you’re a feline fanatic or simply a fan of a well-designed and upbeat game with plenty of extras, then you would have enjoyed Copy Cats! We did.
