King of Cats Megaways slot review (Big Time Gaming)

The game takes place in the African jungle, and there are two safari tours you can choose to attend. The first is the Lion tour (Lion Game) and the second one is the Black Puma tour (Puma Game). I’ll get back to these in a minute.

King of Cats Megaways – both the lions and the pumas are your best friends

For Big Time Gaming, we all know that quality is more important than quantity. It’s their fourth 2021-slot. This one was worth waiting for!

The fact that it’s a Megaways slot always helps get increased attention, especially if it’s from BTG.

We all remember their excellent other Megaways slots like Bonanza Megaways, Extra Chilli Megaways or Holy Diver Megaways. But there are so many more, and I’m convinced that this one is one to remember for a very long time!

I like that there are two different games to play (the Lion Game and the Puma Game). Both have captivating gameplay, offering more than enough variety without being overly complex. I bet you’ll love both games, and the good news is that you can switch whenever you want.

The win potential is tremendous, and it’s indeed possible to grab a 56,000x win. This slot will join our list of slots where you can win over 50,000x the bet!


Number of paylines: up to 117,649 Megaways

RTP and variance: 96.70%  –  97.72%  , High Variance

Maximum win: Over 56,000x the bet

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€20

Bonus features: Two options: the Lion Game and the Puma Game, Free spins

Casino Hipster verdict: HOT. Both player modes are excellent and offer enormous win potential and variety in gameplay

Gameplay and Features

It’s a Megaways slot with 6 reels and up to 117,649 Megaways. Unlike most Megaways slots, the game does not rely on the Avalanche (or Cascading) mechanic. So, no free re-spins following a win or any tumbling symbols for that matter.

The high paying symbols are the four brightly coloured gems (Purple, Red, Blue and Green), and the Purple one is, by far, the most lucrative one. A six-of-a-kind of Purple gems yields a 25x win.

The lows are the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

The Scatters are the Gold-plated Footprints.

The Lion Game

If you choose to play the Lion game, you aim to spin the Lion Wilds, which can be as large as 2×2, 3×3 or even 4×4. The accompanying multipliers are 4x, 9x and 16x (indeed equivalent to the size of the Lion Wild). It reminds me of Big Time Gaming’s, the Final Count Down slot.

The Puma Game

With this variant, you aim to spin stacked Puma wilds, and these will have a random multiplier of x2, x3 or x4. It’s possible to spin up to three Puma Wilds. 

The Lion free spins

You need 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters to trigger 8, 12, 16 or 20 Lion Free Spins.

The free spins play in the same way as the main game, but the Wilds’ multipliers increase rapidly after each Wild you spin. The increments are 2, 5 and 8 per time for the 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 Wilds.

Yes, if you land many Wilds at the beginning and the end a 4×4 Wild with a few purple gems around the Wild, you’re talking about a massive, massive win.

It helps that you can retrigger the free spins with three or more scatters.

The Puma free spins

3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters get you 15, 18, 21 or 24 Puma Free Spins.

Also, here, you benefit from increasing multipliers. It can become highly lucrative if you initially manage to spin many Wilds, yielding much higher multipliers at the end.

King of Cats Megaways – the Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.70% to 96.72%

The RTP of both games is excellent. The Lion Game has an RTP of 96.72%, and the Puma game an RTP of 96.70%.

King of Cats Megaways – the variance (volatility) is very high

It’s needless to say that we’re talking about an incredibly volatile slot, where wins of thousands if not tens of thousands of times the bet are in the air.

My impression is that the Lion Game is more volatile than the Puma Game, as the increments of the increasing multipliers are way higher with the Lion Game.
