Another of IGT’s slots to start its career at land-based casinos, Kitty Glitter, is characteristic of the software developer’s medium-volatility slots. Born as an online avatar in 2009, Kitty Glitter soon captured the hearts of cat lovers and win-chasers, and remains a worldwide pet (pun intended). Kitty Glitter is a cat game full of traits attributed to the spoilt mousers.
The game is dominated by four different breeds of pampered felines, and their paraphernalia, which litter the three rows across five reels. The game also features other symbols like the normal high cards, and a bowl, which contains a diamond that is the scatter symbol of the game. The diamond is your best friend here, irrespective of gender.
The kitties provide the maximum glitter for you in the free spins rounds. In the base game, the cats can be as indifferent to player-fortunes as real felines are to their owners. Its only when the diamond scatters land in winning combinations do the kitties begin to purr. Now, the felines really love you, and keep appearing across the reels as wilds, replacing other symbols, to facilitate more rewarding recipes for you.
The return to player rate of Kitty Glitter starts from 93.51% and only goes up to 94.92%. The mid-volatility of the game does not allow it to give you frequent rewards in the short-term. You need to keep spinning the reels if you want to see some significant winnings, which means you have to keep your stakes low, unless you have the money to invest heavily.
But when it starts paying out, it keeps paying more. Your best friend in the base game is the wild symbol which can create some of the biggest wins with an instant multiplier of 2x. So, look out for the Kitty Glitter mnemonic on the reels. But the real fun starts when the diamond-in-the-bowl triggers the free spins bonus feature. This can be richly rewarding, since they come after long waits. And this time, the cats become the wilds and show their love by visiting you again and again.
What does this mean to you as a player? Everything. This bonus can translate into some serious cash for you. High-value winning combinations can pay out hundreds of times your original bet, especially when the kitty wilds join the party. If the diamond accumulator optimally works for you, your winnings can touch a thousand times your stake, if not more.
The Diamond Accumulator Bonus is another crucial part of the game, which can rain cash. The diamond-in-the bowl is a scatter in the base game, but it becomes a wilds-maker during this bonus feature. Every time the diamond lands on the 5th reel it will be saved in the accumulator locker. The numbers of diamonds you eventually save up will depend on how rave the party is going to get.
The saved diamonds turn the cats into wilds on the center reels. Three accumulated diamonds turn the white Persian cats into wilds while the Orange Tabbies become wilds if you have six diamonds. Nine diamonds will similarly affect the Calico cats. And it takes 12 accumulated diamonds to turn the Siamese cats into wilds.
Though collecting 12 diamond scatters can be a rare occurrence, the Calico cats are quite doable, and can bring you some clearly outstanding payouts.
Since this game is all about free spins, the more rounds you can trigger, the more glittering your kitty party will be. The Free Spins Bonus is activated when at least three diamond-in- the-bowl scatters land across the three center reels. Your free spins bonus starts now, on a richer frame of reels.
The diamond-in-the-bowl itself pays out your stake 3 times. In addition, the free spins can be retriggered in groups of 15 every time you get the diamonds to land. The maximum free spins this feature can give you is 225, which admittedly is quite difficult to achieve. But even a few re-triggers can be enough to make the kitties put some more glitter in your life.
Players who prefer to play on the move are covered by this game. The game’s interface is optimized for all mobile operating systems like Android, Windows Phone, iOS and others. Kitty Glitter can be played on all contemporary smartphones and tables, even on budget phones. You only need a stable internet connection, and your device should support Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.
However, the graphics of the game look small and from an older generation on mobile devices. Hence, it is recommended that Kitty Glitter be played in portrait mode on Smartphones rather than on the bigger screens of tablets. This way, you can ignore the graphical limitations and concentrate on the playing the game, which is one of IGT’s more attractive offerings.
There are cat lovers and then there are punters just looking to win. We think that Kitty Glitter is ideal for those who love cats and slots. It can also be suitable for players hunting for those big wins. You do need to have some budgetary stamina to ultimately get to the bonus feature rounds, which can more than compensate for the dry spells of the base game.
