It’s a cat-eat-mouse-eat-cat world in this RIP City slot that promises huge wins of 12,500x your bet, set over 19 paylines and all for a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin.
Fans of the Simpsons will appreciate the Itchy and Scratchy look about this cartoony RIP City online slot where the mouse smokes far too many cigarettes, and the cat is missing an eye. This is not a cute and bubbly theme like in the Pug Life slot – a warning to any easy-going gambler out there.
RIP City is a mid-to-high variance slot by Hacksaw Gaming to give you two types of wilds, expanding and normal. Combine them, and you can catch up to 200x multipliers on your wins. The two free spin bonus games simply give you a greater chance to catch both.
It’s a simple concept, and one made all the more enjoyable when you realise that you can improve your chances of winning for a little extra cash.
For 3x your bet, you can increase your chance of hitting the bonus scatters by up to 5x. For an extra 20x to 50x your bet, you can guarantee that you’ll get 2 or 3 expanding wild cat symbols on every win. And for 100x or 200x your bet, you can simply buy entry into the free spin bonus rounds.
Should you? This RIP City slot on mobile is perfectly playable without either option, but be prepared to be patient. Its volatile nature can leave many spins without you seeing a trace of cat, wild, or scatters.
This volatility could leave you frustrated enough to just try and buy your way into wins – a dangerous strategy, especially if you don’t have the budget to waste.
Personally, if this Hacksaw Gaming slot did not have the bonus buy options, we probably would have removed a star from this RIP City slot review.
The win of 12,500x your bet is good enough to tempt us to play, but without the helping hand of one of the bonuses buy options, it’s a slow and frustrating game.
Unfortunately, we can only give it up to 3 stars because it’s dangerous to start betting beyond your means, especially if you don’t have the cash to splash.
Not a slot game for everyone, but a select few gamblers who are looking at buying control will appreciate this sin city filled with dangerous animals and dangerous wins.

Wild: The 'wild' symbol acts as a wild and will replace all other symbols on the reels to create a win.
Downward Expanding Wild Cat: The Cat symbol is an expanding wild symbol but will only expand downwards to cover the symbols below. This jaw-dropping cat will replace all other symbols on the reels to create wins over this 19-payline slot machine.
Wilds With Multiplier: If you catch a win with both the expanding wild cat and the normal wild, you will get a multiplier applied to the expanding wild. This multiplier is random and ranges from 2x to 200x your payline win.
If multiple wild cats are used, any multipliers will be first added together and then applied to the total win.
Ro$$ Bonus: Land 3 Free Spin scatter symbols to trigger 10 free spins where you are more likely to catch both the Expanding Wild Cat and the normal wild symbol.
Maxx Bonus: Land 4 free spins scatter symbols to trigger 10 free spins with guaranteed wild cat reels! Every time a Wild cat lands on that reel, it is now activated, and you are guaranteed a wild cat on each spin. You can potentially activate all 5 reels at once.
3 free spin symbols re-triggers to add +4 spins.
Bonus Buy: At any point, you can buy the bonus games for a certain price. The overall RTP of the RIP City slot also increases.
We love the playful theme of this RIP City mobile slot. It's a shame you need to spend a whole load of cash to buy better odds of winning.
Considering this is a mid-to-high variance slot machine, it plays as if it's set at a much higher level, no doubt due to the huge top win of 12,500x your bet.
One for expert gamblers who know how to keep their budget under control, or high-limit slot players who just want slot games with bonus buys.
