Review and recommendations by the testing team
Copy cats slot was quite popular once released, but according to my observations, less and fewer players show interest in it today. Many believe that this slot will not give a big win and they just prefer to spend their time at other slots of the provider. For most reviewers, this slot did not cause any good emotions. I think that this is one of the most favourite NetEnt slots, and here is why.
- It should be first said that this slot, you can get a bigger balance during the bonus game, will keep your balance up even during the normal game mode. The first reel is often full of cats which may form amazing winning combinations. Due to this, it will not let your balance fall while waiting for a bonus game, and with the help of such spins (during the testing period there were game sessions where within 20-30 spins, about 4-7 times a copy feature with good multipliers was enabled). You may forget about the bonus, and the slot has already been more than generous :) Besides the cats, a normal spin may have a set of Wilds on the first reel and their position on all the reels replacing the cats is also less than uncommon for the normal game spins.
- The free spin feature triggers quite often. Many slots would tease you with a couple of Scatters, and this one is not an exception :) During testing period 3 schemes of triggering the free spin features were found.
* the observations do not include the situations when the Scatters drop on the 1st and 5th reels or the 3rd and 5th ones, it was taken into consideration the position of the Scatters on the 1st and 3rd reels with a spinning/scrolling 5th.
A) The slot does not tease the player with a long line of two Scatters, it gives you the free spin features after the first or second attempt and keeps doing it on a regular basis during the normal game mode (we observed a set of 13 free spin features almost in a row). In this case, you would better leave the slot on time, because the slot will wildly start taking its money back.
B) The free spin features are triggered in waves, i.e. giving the third scatter several times, and then several times doesn't give it. Following this scheme, the slot keeps being quite stable, and you may get a free spin features with a good multiplier since the balance does not fall critically.
C) In the very beginning, the slot does the following (up to 12-14 times the Scatters symbols are dropped on the 1st and 3rd reels with the absence of 3rd on the 5th reel). In this case, the slot just keeps the balance up by giving a copy feature during the normal game mode, and the free spin features are yet to be received, after which it will be triggered in batches in small periods during the normal game.
- Speaking of winnings during the free spin features, the slot will do its best to avoid issuing the average multipliers, it may even skip the copy feature, thus the bonus is empty, or gives it 5-6 times out of 10 while forming perfect Wild combinations with a total winning for free spins of about х200-400.
- It was also observed that this slot does not like the big bets and has completely different behaviour for them, it seems that being not so popular, it simply does not have the funds to cover the max bets. This slot is more suitable for small and average stakes, rather than the big ones.
- The following may be summed up: the slot has a average dispersion value, it keeps the balance up, allowing you to wager the bonus money. Having average winnings, it still may increase your balance significantly during the normal or bonus game mode.

Description of the slot machine
As you know, cats prefer to walk by themselves. And in this case, they will do it on 25 permanently active lines. There are standard five reels, and their number also does not change. If you want to get the winning, you need to collect the same images, by starting from the first reel. There must always be at least three symbols. The winning bet is immediately transferred to your account, as there is no game of a chance. But remember that cats are unpredictable animals, the developers have connected the Copy Cats Feature function to the slot. Cloning will occur when identical cat`s symbols occupy the first column. All other animals on the screen will be turned into the same cats. After calculating the winning, the cats will take the previous look.

How to win at slot machine Copy Cats? (conclusion)
The most basic recommendation that we can share with you is that you have to test each slot machine in demo mode before starting a real money play. We think you have to choose your bets wisely, keeping in mind that the slot does not like high bets. Bonuses are given in a series and if you are in a series of several bonuses in a short period of time, be very careful when you will end your session, it may "eat" your money easily. If you see that triggers you two scatters many times and finally trigger a bonus feature, do not be in rush to change the slot, maybe it's time for the series of consecutive bonuses... Despite the not so good points (5.92) for wagering, we think the machine is good for the bonus hunters.
