About Top Cat Slot
Top Cat is an online casino game developed by Blueprint Gaming to feature 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. This slot is clearly based on the iconic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, Top Cat, that had a very successful run on TV, originally in the 1960’s. The gang all appear as symbols on the reels, in addition to classic card symbols and the fish bone Wild, which can substitute for all symbols other than the bonus.
With plenty of features, you could find a bonus round that provides you with a big win. 3 bonus symbols will trigger The Masterplan, with the random choice of 5 great rounds. Any spin could see you with a bonus too, as Choo’s Piano Wilds, Benny’s Colossal TV’s, Brain’s Water Wilds and Spooks Mice Is Nice can all be triggered on a single spin. If you’re feeling peckish, look for a full stack of hot dogs on reel 5 for the Fancy Fancy’s Hot Dog Respins.
Top Cat is available to play on UK Casino via mobile, desktop, and tablet devices.
