Miss Kitty Slot Machine Review

Updated on

Miss Kitty is one of Aristocrat’s popular casino slot machines that have been faithfully brought to the online reels as an exact replica of the original game. The design, symbols, sounds, and features are the same in both games, which is good news for fans of the original land-based casino slot game.

We give Miss Kitty some extra props for being less dated and more entertaining than some of the other Aristocrat slots. You may even find yourself meowing back at the screen when Miss Kitty makes an appearance on these lively reels.

Theme and visuals

Miss Kitty, a hot pink cartoon cat with huge eyes and a big attitude, is the sassy star of this game. Miss Kitty’s pretty face adorns wild symbols that turn into valuable sticky wild symbols on the free spins bonus reels. Miss Kitty prowls around the city in the full moonlight, while full moon scatter symbols award free spins that are spiced up by Miss Kitty’s sticky wild symbols.

The city skyline at night, bathed in a purple glow, sets the mood as the backdrop for the reels that are filled with Miss Kitty’s favorite symbols like goldfish (stacked symbols), birds, toy mice, milk cartons, and balls of string.

The stacked goldfish symbols are the most valuable symbol and are found on every reel, so you could hit multiple goldfish combos on a spin. Standard playing card symbols, nines through aces, complete the collection as the lowest value symbols on the reels.

Miss Kitty boasts a five-reel by four-row game configuration (5×4), with 50 numbered lines on the reels. The game console and background are static, even during the free spins game.

Miss Kitty’s ‘meow’ is one of the most distinctive features of this game, as she meows (pretty loudly) whenever her wild symbol is part of a winning combination. Perhaps you’ve heard her signature meow howling across casino floors before?

Swanky piano music plays as three full moon symbols land on the reels to trigger the Free Games Feature, and jazzy cat music swings as the free spins roll.

Apart from the Miss Kitty ‘meow’, the game is filled with typical retro Aristocrat sound effects; a cross between eighties arcade games and a noisy casino floor. The win jingles pause the jazzy music during the free spins, instead of playing in unison, which we found to be odd and disruptive.

Betting options and paying combinationsMiss Kitty Interface

Miss Kitty offers variable betting options with up to 50 active lines on the reels. Choose to play 1, 10, 20, 35, or 50 lines with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 credits. Coin value options are $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, or $0.10 in free play mode. With those parameters, bets start as low as one penny (1 line x 1 credit x $0.01 = $0.01) and go up to $50.00 (50 lines x 10 credits x $0.10 = $50.00) per spin.

The payout values for matching symbol combinations are relatively low compared to other Aristocrat slots. The lowest paying combo pays out two coins and the highest paying symbol (the stacked goldfish symbol) only pays out 100 coins for five matching symbols on a one-credit bet.

Compare that to 9,000 coins for the highest five-of-a-kind combination in Queen of the Nile, which is on the high side of the spectrum for Aristocrat games. Most Aristocrat games average in between these two extremes.

Top paytable values (for five-of-a-kind combinations on a one-credit bet):

  • Fish symbols (stacked symbols) – 100 coins
  • Bird symbols – 75 coins
  • Toy mouse symbols – 75 coins
  • Milk symbols – 75 coins
  • Ball symbols – 75 coins
  • Ace/King/Queen/Jack/10/9 symbols – 50 coins
  • Scatter symbols (full moon symbols) – 0 coins

Regular symbol combinations award from 2 coins up to 100 coins, which is $0.02 – $1.00 playing with the minimum bet of one-credit at $0.01 per credit. One credit bets are represented on the in-game paytable, but the paytable is static, so you’ll need to multiply the paytable values by the number of credits and the coin value you are playing with to get the adjusted payout values for higher bet levels.

For example, playing with a maximum 10-credit bet at $0.10 per credit, multiply the paytable values by 10 and 0.10 to get the adjusted payout values of $2.00 – $100.00.

Like other Aristocrat slots, the autoplay function in Miss Kitty can be tricky. The Auto Spin button sets the reels into perpetual motion and it takes another click of the button to stop them. It is not possible to choose a preset number of auto spins in this game.

The RTP (Return-To-Player) percentage for Miss Kitty is 94.76%, which is slightly below average compared to other Aristocrat slot games.

What jackpots Are available?Miss Kitty Free Games Feature Bonus Trigger

Like the original Miss Kitty land-based casino slot, there are no jackpots in this online game.

Additional features and bonuses

The action in this game is focused on the Free Games Feature that awards free spins with sticky wilds.

Stacked Symbols

Stacked symbols (goldfish symbols) are available on all five reels. Stacked symbols can land with as little as one visible symbol on a reel or up to four visible symbols that fill an entire reel.

Stacked goldfish symbols are the highest paying symbols on these reels, and a minimum of only two matching symbols score a payout. During the free spins bonus, “stacks” of sticky wild symbols can combine with stacked goldfish symbols to create even more winning combinations.

Sticky Wild Symbols

Wide-eyed Miss Kitty adorns wild symbols that become sticky during the free spins bonus game. Meaning, when Miss Kitty wild symbols land on the reels, they “stick” in the position where they landed and stay there until the free spins are over. Sticky wilds are available on every reel except the first reel, and they can easily fill up those reels during the free spins games.

Scatter Symbols

Full moon scatter symbols trigger the Free Games Feature. Three scatter symbols must land with one scatter symbol each on reels one, two, and three, instead of scattered anywhere on the reels, to trigger or retrigger the bonus feature.

Free Games Feature (Free Spins Bonus Game)

The Free Games Feature awards ten free spins with Miss Kitty sticky wild symbols on the reels. The Free Games Feature can be retriggered one time only, awarding five free spins (instead of ten free spins).

Gamble Feature

On any win, including a total win from the Free Games Feature, you can collect your win or gamble it. Guess the color of a face-down playing card to double your win or guess the suit to quadruple your win. Collect your new win or keep gambling up to five times. A wrong guess ends the gamble feature and you lose your total gamble amount.

Who is this game ideal for?Miss Kitty Gamble Feature

Fans of the original Miss Kitty land-based casino slot are ideal players for this online version of the game. Miss Kitty is also ideal for retro slots lovers, penny slots players, and beginning players, as well as players that appreciate the cartoon cat theme.

Similar games from Aristocrat

Although Aristocrat’s Pelican Pete, an ocean-themed slot starring a saucy pelican, features a very different theme than Miss Kitty, the game reels, configuration, and bonus features are almost identical.

Both games offer the same payout structure and symbol values, set on colorful reels with entertaining cartoon animal characters. Both slot games also award a Free Games Feature with ten free games and sticky wilds on the reels.

What’s hot:

Free Spins Bonus Game – Awards ten free spins with sticky wild symbols on the reels, plus a possible retrigger with five more free spins.

Stacked Symbols – Stacked goldfish symbols on all five reels are four symbols high, sometimes filling an entire reel or blocks of adjacent reels.

Sticky Wild Symbols – Miss Kitty wild symbols are sticky during free spins games, filling up the reels by sticking where they land for the rest of the free spins.

Authentic Casino Slot – This online Miss Kitty game is exactly the same as the original slot found at land-based casinos.

What’s not:Miss Kitty Paytable 1

Low-Value Symbols – Payout values for symbol combinations are low compared to other Aristocrat games.

No Jackpots – There are no jackpots in the original Miss Kitty casino slot, and none have been added to appeal to online players.

Limited Bonus Features – Offers very few bonus features compared to newer online slots, and there are no interactive bonus options.

“Scatter” Symbols – Scatter symbols must be on reels one, two, and three to trigger the bonus feature instead of scattered anywhere on the reels.

Stacked Symbols – Although stacked symbols can pay out big when multiple stacked symbols land on the reels, when a stacked goldfish symbol covers the entire first reel and there are no matching symbols on the second reel, no winning combinations are possible, and the spin is a bust.

Final Ratings

  • Graphics and Design- 3/5: Visually, the online version of Miss Kitty is the same as the original land-based casino slot game. Miss Kitty’s design feels less dated compared to other Aristocrat slots, thanks to relatively crisp and vibrant graphics, with bold colors that help the reels to pop and add life to the Miss Kitty character. Miss Kitty scores a slightly above-average rating for authenticity and above-average graphics compared to other Aristocrat games.
  • Sound Effects- 2.75/5: We’re rating the sound effects slightly higher than average due to the authentic retro sounds, paired with the jazzy soundtrack during the free spins. The piano bar flourishes when the bonus round is triggered aren’t bad either. Overall, Miss Kitty is less dated and cheesy sounding than some other Aristocrat slots.
  • Jackpot Value- 0/5: There are no jackpot options in this game.
  • Replay Value – 3/5: Miss Kitty’s replay value also rates above average, due to the above-average graphics and audio for a retro Aristocrat game, as well as a relatively interesting bonus game. Replay value should be solid for fans of the original Miss Kitty casino slot game, and easy gameplay that is spiced up by stacked symbols, free spins, and sticky wild symbols could make repeat players out of penny slots players and beginners.
