Wild Cat Symbols

During the base game, both Wilds and Wild Cat symbols can appear across the reels.

When a Wild Cat symbol hits and forms a win, it will expand downwards to fill the reel it is on. Expanded Wild Cat symbols act as Wilds for every position the expanded symbol covers.

Wild Cat symbols that do not expand act as a single Wild symbol, with each reel only able to hold 1 Wild Cat symbol at a time.

Wild Symbols

If a Wild Cat symbol is present on the same reel as a regular wild, it will expand through it, turning into a Multiplier between x2 and x200. This multiplier is applied to the entire Cat Wild symbol when expanded.

If a winning combination has more than 1 expanded Cat Wild with a Multiplier, both multiplier values will be added together and applied to the win.

During Ro$$ Free Spins, you will have an increased chance of landing Wild Cat and regular Wild symbols than in the base game.

Landing 3 FS Scatters during this round will award an additional +4 Free Spins. Landing 4 FS Scatters will automatically trigger the Maxx Free Spins round at the end of the current spin.

Maxx Free Spins

Landing 4 FS Scatters across the reel set in any position triggers the Maxx Free Spins round, awarding 10 Free Spins.

RIP City: Our Verdict

RIP City looks like another Hacksaw Classic from our point of view, but what does ‘Hacksaw Classic’ really mean?

Is it brutal? yes. Can it open a metaphoric plug hole and drain your balance as if it was water? Absolutely. However, it has all of the great things that makes a Hacksaw just that too. It has plenty in the way of features and lots to experience, big potential, profound and interesting visuals and that little bit of ‘edge’ that we love from Hacksaw Gaming.

RIP City is as gritty as you’d expect from the creators of Chaos Crew, and we’ve said it time and time again that this is where Hacksaw Gaming thrives. Forget the nausiatingly chipper atmosphere of Hop’n’POP, and forget the disgustingly cheerful King Carrot. Darkness is what you desire from Hacksaw Gaming, and its hard not to love it when they pull it off so well.

Unforutnately, being a Hacksaw Classic means also that it resonates more with players able to buy the bonus. Hacksaw Gaming slots are notoriously unforgiving at times, and to UK players, the mere whisper of their name can evoke a sense of fear and bring back all the repressed memories of times where their games have not pulled punches. There’s certainly potential in the Base Game with Wild Cat Symbols, but for any real excitement you’ll be wanting of those bound rounds.

Overall, RIP City certainly doesn’t stand out as one of Hacksaw Gaming’s finest works, but it’s entertaining, interesting and very capable with up to 12,500x as a maximum win.
