This is a Megaways game with a difference, as the name might suggest, this King of Cats slot is the first in a new genre by Big Time Gaming, and we like what we see.
What is a PlayerSelect slot? It’s a slot machine where on any spin you can choose one of two features. In this King of Cats mobile slot the first feature is the Lion spins, where you get 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 wild symbols with multipliers ranging from 4x to 16x. The RTP of the Lion spins is 96.72%.
The second feature is the Puma spins, where you get one, two, or three wild reels each with multipliers ranging from 2x to 4x, but the multipliers multiply each other. The RTP of the puma spins is 96.70%.
Both are played on 6 Megaways reels, but the slot theme changes slightly, from the savannahs of Africa to the jungles of South America. And as they are Megaways, the rows of symbols change spin to spin, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win.
Both features bring big wins. You might only get one wild in the lions, but you have a 8x multiplier. You might only get a 4x multiplier in the pumas, but they multiply reels can multiply each other and you get up to 3 reels wilds.
And of course, the King of Cats PlayerSelect free spin bonus is slightly different but kinda similar.
So bearing in mind the different wild features, each time the wild shows up, the multiplier increases. You can only trigger 8 to 20 Lion free spins, but 15 to 24 Puma free spins.
Either way, each time the wilds show up, the multipliers will increase even further – we’ve seen 16x multipliers in the Lion spins and 12x multiplier in the Puma. More is definitely possible.
At heart, the mechanics of this real money slot is not all that complicated, which is a good thing as you have to get your heart around both the way Megaways games work and the new PlayerSelect way to play.
The King of Cats PlayerSelect slot game has up to 117,649 ways to win, and two game modes giving you either block mega wilds or up to 3 wild reels. 3 or more scatters will trigger free spins where the multipliers on the wild will increase each time a wild shows up.
In other words, if this was any of our other slot reviews, it would be pretty standard wilds/free spins/scatter combo. But the addition of the two modes and the Megaways give this King of Cats slot game a little extra zest that makes you want to keep playing. That and wins of over 20,000x your bet.

Player Select: On any spin, you can play the Lion or the Puma game.
Lion Free Spins: 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter whilst playing a lion spin will win 8, 12, 16, or 20 free spins respectively. This time around the 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 Lion Wilds begins with a x2, x5 or x8 multiplier respectively.
Only this time, every time any lion wild appears, the lion wild multipliers increase by 2, 5, or 8. 3 or more scatters will retrigger the free spins.
Puma Free Spins: 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter whilst playing a lion spin will win 15, 18, 21, or 24 free spins respectively. The first time you get Puma Wilds, it will reveal with a x2, x4, or x6 multiplier. Every subsequent time that a Puma wild triggers, the three multipliers increase by 1, 2, or 3 respectively.
3 or more scatters in any position retrigger the free spins.
Wilds: The lion or Puma wild substitutes for all symbols except scatter. It occurs on reels 2 to 5 only.
Megaways: Over all 6 reels the row of symbols can change from 2 to 7 symbols high. It can change the ways to win, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win.
Some may call it a gimmick, but we loved the fact that we could swap and switch effortlessly between two different games and two different features in this King of Cats game.
Don't think that the Lion spins are better than the Puma spins simply because the RTP is a little bit higher. Both are brilliant and both can give you over that max 20,000x your bet win.
We could play on this online slot machine time and time again, thanks to ever-changing features and the free spins that increase those sweet wild multipliers.
All in all, an excellent Megaways slot machine from Big Time Gaming.
Review by Lucky Mobile Slots, last updated: October 10, 2022 - Rating
The theoretical King of Cats slot RTP is between 96.72 and 96.7%. This is on the higher end of the return to player scale but not as high as some other high RTP slots.
The King of Cats max win is 20,000x your total stake. This can be achieved in the free spins thanks to the multipliers within.
Being a PlayerSelect slot you can pick which theme and features you want to play with. This gives you the choice of Lion Free Spins or Puma Free Spins each one containing multipliers and varying free games.
This is a high variance slot machine offering up big wins but with the risk that you may not win for a while when spinning. Big wins aren't guaranteed though so be sure to budget.
You sure can. Find the right Big Time Gaming casinos and you'll be able to play in demo mode for free before you take a spin for real money.
