Review and recommendations from the testing team
- Brave Cat slot from EGT developer has become quite popular with players. The slot is so popular because it has with two types of scatter symbols, triggers up to 100 free spins, additional payments for wild symbols, the “re-spin feature” and “wild credit feature” (gives the big potential to the slot).
- In the usual spins, the payouts made by the slot are mostly small, awarding prices close to the nominal bet size, with sometimes the big payments of 20x-40x. Because there is a chance identical symbols to be shown (including wilds), Brave cat is able to realize its potential and make payouts of 100+ bets, but it happens extremely rare, and also, mainly during the free spins feature.
- Free spins are triggered when one of two types of paired scatter symbols are given or the combination of one symbol of each type. Each type of scatter symbols also trigger one of the bonus features. Often small series of 2-3 free spins are launched, on average the distance of the needed spins is 80-140.
- Five scatters of the same kind are awarding 6 free spins (6 scatters -12 free spins, 7-20, 8-30, 9-50, 10-100). In the cases when free spins are triggered by a pair of Castle symbols, the “re-spin feature” is also available during all free spin. If a pair of King symbols is launching free spins, the “wild credit feature” is triggered instead. Combinations of 4 Castle and 4 King symbols are awarding 6 free spins with both bonus features involved. Whenever scatters that are given are 5+5, this will lead to 20 free spins and also both bonus features triggered.
- The “Re-spin feature” – If during free spins one or more reels are fully covered with wild symbols this will trigger it. All the reels that are not fully covered will spin and if the new full-wild reel is shown, the “re-spin feature” will launch again. This feature will stop when there is no new reels whole filled with wild symbols.
- The “Wild credit feature” awards an instant payment for each wild symbol shown on the reels, range for payouts is from 1x-10x bets (more than 10x total bet per wild symbol was not triggered during testing). Despite the low potential for this feature, it is giving "guaranteed" winnings, most of them small, but with also a chance the payout to reach 100+ bets. Most of the time, Brave Cat slot triggers only 6 free spins, less often 12. We didn’t manage to get more than 12 spins during testing. The average payment with 6 free spins and "re-spin feature" is 40x-60x bets, with winnings of 5x-15x rarely paid.
- Most of the time, payment for 6 spins with the “wild credit feature” is 30x-60x total bets. The average payout for 6 spins involve both features of 60x-80x bets, but also winnings for more than 370x (at 6 spins) were recorded. Payments at 12 free spins with the “re-spin feature” are already 100x-150x total bets. The maximum payout gained with this feature and 12 spins were over 750x bets. Failed to get 12 free spins and the “wild credit feature”. You can find information about risk game for doubling of winnings here.
- With information on “JackPot Cards” feature available.
I will only give neutral recommendations for Brave Cat slot while playing bonus money. It is not very good at keeping your balance while waiting for free spins to be triggered, but during periods of "hot slot" leading to series of launches, Brave Cat is able to give quite good payments. While playing for real money, only short and medium distances are recommended, at which this slot is also quite capable of realizing its potential.
