The phrase ‘copy cats’ never has been this literal in our lives. Designed and developed by NetEnt, this feline themed slot does exactly what the title says. Throughout the game, you will witness first-hand how all the cats in this game copy each other to give you massive wins. As you start playing, you will be greeted by three different coloured cats, on top of a few other cat related symbols. Given that all of them copy each other all day long, Copy Cats prides itself in rewarding its players with stacked reels of high paying symbols. Now, who’s ready to be awed by a group of cute kitties?

NetEnt has set the Return to Player (RTP) rate at a respectable 96.1%, in-line with many new releases this year. The part that makes this game a really attractive proposition to many players is that Copy Cats is a low variance game. This simply means that payouts will be extremely frequent albeit with slightly smaller amounts. This payout pattern helps minimize risk greatly as players will be able to recover their money quickly as they play.
NetEnt never fails to give us amazing bonus features in all their games. In total, the Copy Cats slot comes with three unique bonus features. For starters, there are the Wilds. The Wild symbols in this slot come in the form of the golden kitty with a ball of yarn. Like all Wilds, they will replace all symbols on your reels except the scatters to complete winning paylines.
Here comes the start feature of this game – the Copy Cats feature. Based on the four high paying kitty symbols in this game, this feature will award its players with stacked symbols on the first reel. Once activated and you get a whole reel of the same cat, every other cat across all of the other reels will transform into the same cat as in the first reel. With many of the same symbols covering the entirety of your reels, you will be able to complete many winning paylines that will lead to massive wins. On average, this feature pays in the range of 10x to 30x your spin wager.
The last feature in this game is the free spins feature. Three collar symbols on your first, third and fifth reel will trigger this feature and award you with 10 free spins respectively. The best part about this feature is that all kitty symbols on your first reel will be transformed into Wilds. If you’re lucky enough to trigger the Copy Cats feature here, you might possible be looking at a whole screen filled with Wilds.
How Copy Cats Slot Performs
Copy Cats exhibits a simple yet unique theme that works flawlessly. There really is no two ways about it. The graphics are beautifully designed throughout the game and the little animations in the bonus features are as smooth as silk. All the four kitties that will reward you with money are cute beyond what words can describe. The part that surprised is most was the soundtrack. We half expected it to be super gimmicky and annoying, but we are glad that NetEnt didn’t over do the music with this game.
Gameplay wise, everything is solidly designed and even after 40 full minutes of testing, the game performed without a single lag. Copy Cats is compatible with all types of devices regardless of platforms and you will be able to play this game on the go all the time.
Most Impressive Quality
We feel that the simplicity and effectiveness of the theme in this game has made it as good as it is. What seemed to be a fairly simple concept (copy cats) has been transformed into a full-fledged feature that has pretty much brought this slot to life. You really have to experience the Copy Cat feature yourself to understand how spectacular this feature is.
So is Copy Cats worth investing your valuable time and money into? Of course! This slot is a great way to pass time with especially with its frequent payouts. You will never have to worry about breaking your bank account playing this game. It will be an additional plus point too if you are into cats. The cute antics by the Golden Kitty will only put a smile on your face. We might be nit-picking here, but we think that Copy Cats would have been much better if it let us trigger the bonus features more often. Otherwise, this game is perfect as it is.
