Cats of the Caribbean Slot Review 2022

Games Global partner Snowborn Studios is back with another adorable instalment to add to their feline-friendly collection, in Cats of the Caribbean!

Calling all cat lovers! The celtic cats from Cat Clans are back and this time they’ve traded in their Kilts for pirate hats and eye-patches in Cats of the Caribbean, but will this latest instalment be a step up from the last? Dog themed slots once ruled the reels but now it seems that cats are taking over.

Snowborn Studios started off small but since the release of Cat Clans, they have grown to be a popular provider. Since the release of Cat Clans in December 2021, Snowborn Studios has gone on to release Masters of Valhalla and Pile ‘Em Up which won the hearts of many, but will Cats of the Caribbean do the same?

Let’s play on and find out!

Cats of the Caribbean: Our Verdict

Cats of the Caribbean is another brilliant instalment from a growing provider and a shining example of how talented the Ladies and Gents are at Snowborn Studios, but does it top the likes of Cat Clans and Pile ‘Em Up?

Although Legend of the Sword was a decent slot, it’s hard to believe that Snowborn Studios are the ones behind it. Cats of the Caribbean and the previous 3 titles show just how far this provder has come since then. Cats of the Caribbean hasn’t been labeled a sequel to Cat Clans, but the fact that it shares the same feline characters makes us think otherwise.

Not only does Cats of the Caribbean share the same characters, but it also has striking similarities in terms of gameplay. Like Cat Clans, Snowborn Studios has given players a chance to hit some appealing Jackpot Prizes in the Cat Pots Bonus round and if that doesn’t peek your interests then you can always try your hand at multiple Free Spins rounds.

In terms of statistics, Cats of the Caribbean has an above average RTP of 96.00% and a maximum win capacity of 10,000x which is slightly lower than Cat Clans but is still very appealing nonetheless.

All in all, Cats of the Caribbean is an absolute pleasure to play, it’s gripping, fun and occassionally a little feisty.
