These crazy city cats have plenty of attitude, but this Copy Cats mobile slot lacks any real bite.
We should confess; we sat and pondered for ages as to what star rating this NetEnt slot review should get.
It was never going to be 5 stars, but between a playable 3 stars, and a mediocre 2 stars… 2 only just won.
What we are saying is that if you love colourful kitty inspired games then you might want to try this Copy Cat slot game.
There’s something about this Copy Cat video slot that draws you when you open it up.
It could be the colourful cats, the cute little paws, or the play-mouse symbol, all making you comfortable in a familiar world.
It’s the world of Garfield, Top Cat, Silvester and any other cartoon cat that graces our screen with their loveable kitty antics.
Add a jazzy tune, and dark alleys full of free spins, and this theme just works.
The main bonus game features of the Copy Cats slot machine is the fact that if you get a whole reel of the same cat symbols on reel 1, all the other cats on the reel will turn into that reel 1 symbol.
So, potentially, if you have a whole screen full of cats, that’s 25 paylines of 5 of a kind wins.
The free spins are even more interesting, because the stacked cat symbol on reel 1 is the golden kitty; ie. the wild symbol.
That’s right… a whole screen of wild symbols. Imagine that.
And this is the point where you think we tell you that a whole screen full of the same high paying symbol, or wild, is impossible.
It isn’t. We’ve not seen a whole screen, but as much as 10 symbols? Sure. That we’ve seen. More is easily on the cards.
But you rarely win much more than about 20x your bet – technically the most you can win here is 200 times your bet in one spin.
The mobile Copy Cats slot is very playable. But we prefer our cats to purr a little less, and roar a little louder.

Wild: The golden kitty playing with the purple ball of yarn is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reel.
Copy Cats Slot Feature: There are 4 high paying cat symbols on these reels; and that include the gold wild kitty.
They come stacked on reel 1 only, but for good reasons; if a full stack of any of the four cats cover the whole of reel 1, all the other cats across the rest of the 5 reels will turn into the cat on reel 1.
This is for the one spin only, and before you get too excited, getting a stack of wilds is almost impossible short of the NetEnt Copy Cats free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 collar bell scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 activate 10 free spins.
What makes these special is that all the cat symbols on reel 1 will now be wild symbols; meaning every time the copy cats feature shows up, you get wilds across the whole screen.
There's no doubt that it does provide bigger wins than in the base game, but even then, you usually only walk away with about 20x to 30x your bet.
This Copy Cats slot on mobile and online plays beautifully wherever you choose. In fact, with big bold colourful graphics, it's perfect for smaller Android phones or iPhone casinos.
What it doesn't have is much bite, as the wins here feel like there are just there so you don't lose much, rather than help you build any kind of substantial pot.
It's not that we mind little wins, but getting much more than 20x your bet feels like cleaning up all the cat hair: you might occasional manage it, but mostly you have to surrender to the sad fact that this is what you get for having a cat.
If cartoon cats are your thing, we still prefer to play on the far superior Miss Kitty slot by Aristocrat gaming.
