This Colin The Cat mobile slot has only 4 reels, 10 paylines, 8 symbols and one bonus symbol. There are no free spins, but some cute cats. Never underestimate the power of cats.
This is a cute slot machine by Wazdan Gaming, but it doesn’t fit in our traditional boxes, making it very difficult to write as a slot review.
It’s got no bonus features, no free spins, and only 4 reels. So it’s technically more classic slot than video slot? BUT it has rich graphics and animations, with pay all ways mechanics and a bonus symbol so… technically video slot after all?
The one thing that makes this Colin the Cat online slot particularly interesting is that you can pick the slot variance of the game. Not just the free spins like in Dragon slot by Leander, but every spin.
It doesn’t change the paytable, just how often it pays.
So if you choose low variance, you get lots of smaller wins – perfect if you only have a short time to play. If you like big risky slots with big paydays, then choose high variance. You won’t get half as many wins, but you have more chances of catching those big bonus symbols.
Or, if you’re like us, stick to somewhere in the middle. We found we needed those little wins to make this real money game interesting, but we needed the hope of catching those bigger wins to keep us invested.
What annoyed us is that the graphics here are beautiful. But the 8 symbols are each so busy, and some so similar, it’s hard to distinguish between them.
Had the colours popped a little more, it would make this a far more visually interesting game to play. Let’s be honest, you need that as this is the heart of this Colin the Cat slot game.
You do have a little bonus symbol that shows up on any symbol and can pay as 4 of a kind – giving you that hope for the 2,000 times your bet win.
This is a hard review. Colin the Cat, as cute as he is, doesn’t sit comfortably anywhere but is interesting enough that we kept playing around to see what would happen next.
If we did have to recommend it, it would be to lovers of classic 3 reel fruit machines. Mostly because the simple mechanics suit players who don’t expect every bell and whistle every 10 spins.

Pick The Volatility: You can pick whether you want to play:
Gamble: You can gamble any win by picking the mouse hole. If you catch a mouse, you double your bet, if you catch a mousetrap, you'll lose your win.
Bonus Symbol: Any symbol can have a little bonus Colin the Cat on the bottom right-hand corner, and will pay if it shows up on a payline as a 3 or 4 of a kind.
Pay Anywhere on the Payline: So you get wins wherever the 3 of a kind symbol shows up anywhere on the payline, left to right, right to left, or right in the centre.
We suspect that this Colin the Cat slot on mobile is an acquired taste. Not everyone likes marmite, coffee or brussel sprouts, and not everyone will love Colin.
But he is a cutie. And he lets you choose the kind of 4 reel slot you want to play, from light easy wins to risky and slow, giving you the kind of control few machines dare to do.
That said, it can feel a little slow at times in all modes, mostly because only Colin as the bonus symbol can pay as four of a kind and give you the bigger wins.
Still, for some quick spins, we can see many classic slot lovers enjoy a simple game. That said, if you are a total beginner, we'd probably still recommend Star Joker slot over this first just to get the basics of video slots under your belt.
