Cat Queen was released by PlayTech (one of the most popular and best software developers in the world) way back in May 2014. The fact that this game is still relevant over two years later is testament to PlayTech’s ability to create quality games that can stand the test of time.
Cat Queen is a 5 reel, 4 row (one more than usual), 40 fixed payline slot machine. The coin betting ranges vary from €0.01 to €20.00. Therefore, the minimum/maximum bets are €0.40 and €800.00 per spin. The total stake is worked out by the coin betting range x 40 paylines (remember that the paylines are fixed at 40). The RTP for this slot is a reasonable 96.8%.
How to play

Theme and Special Features
Once you have loaded this slot up, you will instantly recognize what its theme is. The reason for this is because it has one of the most common themes that you will find in the world of online slot machines. Yes, that’s right; it has an Ancient Egyptian theme. Cat Queen, like plenty of other online slots out there, takes you all the way back to Ancient Egypt and gives you the opportunity to enter one of Egypt’s famous pyramids in the search for riches. The competition within this genre of slot machines is fierce, therefore, the fact that this Egyptian themed slot is still being played more than two years after it was first released, helps to emphasize just how much of a hit it has been (and still is).
The regular symbols include the Egyptian gods Seth, Horus and Bastet, the Eye of Horus, an ankh, a scarab and a pharaoh. The Pharaoh is the highest paying regular symbol in the game; 5 of these across a payline will win you 200x your stake per line. All the aforementioned symbols can appear stacked.
Wild: The wild is the Cat Queen herself. She acts as a substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter. Five wilds across a payline will earn you 1000x your line bet.
Scatter: The scatter is the pyramid with scatter written on it (believe it or not). This is needed to unlock the Free Spins feature (see below). This is the highest paying symbol in the game; 5 of these across an active payline will win you 2000x your line bet.
Free Spins: If you manage to land three or more scatters anywhere across the reels, you will be rewarded with fifteen free spins. This can be retriggered.
Cat Queen is a fun and simple slot to play. This game, when compared to more recent slots, does not have many bonus features. However, the fact that the free spins can be triggered quite often, and that regular symbols can appear stacked, definitely helps to compensate for this.
