Wilds

Wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters and Prize symbols.

Stacked Wilds

Stacked Wild symbols substitute for all paying symbols when in view. Stacked Wild symbols may land with a Multiplier value between x2 and x8. Wild symbols are equal to the Multiplier for pay evaluation, multiplying Instant Prize wins by their corresponding value.

Stacked Wild symbols cover the entire reel they appear on, acting as one symbol. Once in view, in Free Spins, they will remain in position for the duration of the round.

Instant Prize Symbols

Instant Prize symbols are bet multipliers that only appear on reels 1 and 5 in the base game and Free Spins round. Instant Prizes are awarded when a matching combination with at least 2 Wild symbols forms on consecutive reels. Matching combinations are created from the leftmost reel.

Conclusion

Many prefer dogs over cats, but you can’t deny the majestic presence of our furry feline friends. They strut elegantly through the room safe in the knowledge that they own you, and they’re unapologetic in their reluctance or outright refusal to show you the affection that dogs hand over easily.

Push Gaming’s latest feline fiction puts cats on the highest pedestal there is, the pristine marble columns of Olympus. It’s a new experience from Push Gaming thematically, but elements of the game feel fairly familiar with features that are reminiscent of the popular Dinopolis series. The big difference here is the 4-reel feature set, which has been tried previously by Pragmatic Play‘s The Dog House Multihold, and Thunderkick’s Fortune Cats Golden Stacks, which coincidentally also featured cats.

Unlocking further reels makes Cats of Olmpuss quite exciting, though it can be extremely disheartening when you don’t unlock them. Some slots have the potential to kick off on any given spin, and Cats of Olympuss does too to an extent, but you’ll want those extra reel sets to see its true capabilities. Speaking of capabilities, Cats of Olympuss features a very satisfactory max in of 13,195x the bet.

Overall, Cats of Olympuss isn’t a headline act from Push Gaming, but it’s not at all disappointing either.
