For all the people who cannot imagine their life without a pet and who love playing pet games, here comes a superb, perhaps one of the best 3D slots by Betsoft about the cutest kitty there is. Kawaii Kitty is inspired by Japanese anime cartoons, hence the title (“kawaii”means “cute” in Japanese) and the main protagonist of the game – an adorable kitten sitting on her chair, watching you lovingly with her big cute eyes. The entire theme revolves around this princess cat in what seems to be her house specially designed to fit her rose-coloured world. The kitten itself does not have any role in the game, except for purring and cuddling. The reels however feature everything she needs for a good life: a mouse toy, cat food, can of tuna, fish toys, milk and the brush for her soft fur.
Betsoft have really outdone themselves in delivering premium quality HD graphics, though the game play could be smoother at some points. For example, it takes time to load the window showing the paytable or Double Up feature. The symbols sport a 3D cartoony look and the theme gives an overall impression as slightly childlike. The 5 reels and 3 rows house 10 win lines which are not customizable, but there are some options for players to set to their own liking such as coin level which ranges from $0.02 to $1 and the bet level spanning from 1 to 10. When it comes to the controls of the game, Kawaii Kitty features a typical Betsoft setting of Spin button, Maxbet and Autoplay button.
Next to them the players will notice Double Up feature which offers the players a nice chance after every win in the game to gamble their money. By choosing heads or tails on a kitty coin, the players will either double their win or lose it all.
The highlight of the game and the main feature which is at the same time the only special feature in the game is Wild Yarn Respins. It revolves around the Wild symbol represented by two wool yarns. It appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and when it does, it will spread across the entire reel and trigger a re-spin. During the re-spin the Wild reel remains active thus giving more chances of forming a winning combination. The good news is that if another Wool Yarn appears on the rest of the reels the Wild will expand again and trigger another re-spin. Technically we could say that these are two features: Expanding Wild and a Re-spin, but they always occur simultaneously.
The title of the game gives the best summary. Everything in this game is cute and the players will definitely be thrilled by the crisp graphics and animations, but other than that Kawaii Kitty does not offer much excitement to keep the players in the game.
