There are more than just a few slot machines based on the theme of ancient Egypt, and finding something fresh and original in this area is nearly impossible now. However, Playtech was always one of the braver companies in the area – and so it decided to make its mark in this theme with a slot machine called Cat Queen, filled with Egyptian gods, Pharaohs, queens and pyramids.
A true beauty to behold
Playtech slot machines usually spare no expense as far as production values go. And this can clearly be seen also in its Cat Queen slot machine, which offers very nice visuals. While the graphics are not as detailed as in Playtech's licensed games from the Marvel universe, they still are definitely above-average – and not only when just comparing to other Egyptian slot machines. The audio is excellent and those who place emphasis on this aspect will be more than satisfied. The music feels nice and epic, the winning sounds are pleasant and positive.
A game with only basic functions
At its core, this is a classic 5-reel, 4-row slot machine with 40 winning lines. You can forget about any modern functions or progressive jackpots. It's basically a classic slot machine. Regarding the topic, as we mentioned earlier it's based on ancient Egypt. Individual symbols represent the gods Seth, Bastet or Horus + symbols which are closely linked to Egypt, the cross of life (Ankh), Horus' eye and of course the Scarabeus. Another important symbol is that of a Pharaoh, which offers the highest winnings.
Aside from classical symbols, you can also get a Wild symbol symbolized by a Cat Queen - in a winning line it can replace any other symbol with the exception of the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is a pyramid, and if you manage to get it 3, 4 or 5 times on a single screen then you'll get the highly sought-after free spins (with bonuses you can get up to 30 free spins) and according to the number of symbols on reels also a financial bonus to your win.
One specific function of this slot machine is the DOUBLE. This can be used whenever you get a win – it allows you to double your winning. All you need to do is pick a card which is higher than the dealer's. That means the chance is 50:50. But we advise caution when using this function. Other than the above, the slot machine doesn't offer much else. One thing that perhaps deserves a mention is the Turbo function, which can significantly speed up your game (not available in all countries).
Summary for the Cat Queen slot machine - a classic which doesn't offer much more than the basics
The summary will be quite awkward for this one. On one hand, Cat Queen by Playtech offers a detailed and pleasant environment with excellent audio, but on the other hand it offers nothing on top of that. In particular, the slot machine offers very little as far as bonus functions are concerned. But if you like classic slot machines and place emphasis on good visuals, then you should definitely try it out. It might grow on you.
