9 Lives from mFortune: Slot Review - you'll be on cloud 9 with this slot!
9 Lives is a game exclusively available to play at mFortune and it is all about a group of cute felines protecting a big stash of kitty kash at the pearly gates of heaven. A strange theme there you would think but it ties in nicely with the name of the slot as legend has it that cats live up to 9 lives and most arrive at the pearly gates of heaven before descending back down to earth to begin their next life.
It is a 5 reel slot game with 15 paylines and it features free spins, multipliers, a progressive jackpot and two mini-games: Cloud 9 and Lucky Litter.
The first feature to mention is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a menacing looking Grim Reaper. It substitutes for all symbols except the Mini-Game and Free Spins symbols. It’s the highest paying symbol in the game and if you are lucky enough to land 5 Wild symbols then you will be treated to a fantastic 2,000X your initial wager! It is also worth mentioning that any combination of this symbol along with the Jackpot symbol that totals 5 symbols on an active win line will result in a lovely 300x payout.
To trigger Free Spins, you need to land 3 Free Spins symbols anywhere on an active win line. Free Spins symbols are illustrated by a cute looking devil cat. The more Free Spins symbols you land then the more Free Spins you’ll be given. For instance, if you land 3 symbols then you will be given 5 Free Spins, land 5 symbols and you will be given 9 Free Spins.
The game features 2 nice mini-games. The first one is Cloud 9 and it triggers when you land a winning combination with the 9 symbol. The 9 symbol is illustrated by a cute angelic cat holding the number 9. It involves spinning a wheel that offers the chance to double your winnings with a 2X multiplier. A neat feature of this game is you are guaranteed a win as the wheel will stop on either 1X or 2X so you will still win something even if you do not double your winnings.
The second game is Lucky Litter and as you can imagine, it is all about clearing up a litter box. To activate this mini-game, you need to land 2 or more Litter Box symbols. The more of these symbols you land on an active win line, the more spins you will be awarded in this game. There are lots of multipliers to win in this feature and if you are lucky enough to land 5 Litter Box symbols then you will be given 5 spins and the chance to win a clawsome 250X multiplier.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game features some lovely graphics as the reels are set against the pearly gates of heaven high up in the clouds with a clear blue sky. The symbols are intricately detailed and consist of a nice variety of different cats, a golden mouse, and a ghastly looking grim reaper. The animations are superb as symbols bounce wildly and come to life on the reels. It is also nice when you are taking a breather from the game, a cute looking angelic cat holding a harp will pop up on the main screen and hover over the reels to entice you to press the Spin button again.
The slot contains some heavenly sounds with lots of harps and soft piano beats. It compliments the game really well and helps to transport you to those gates high up in the clouds.

Our Verdict on 9 Lives
9 Lives is made by mFortune and it’s a feline-packed slot that is full of cuteness and fairly decent payouts. The game is beautiful to look at and really easy to play. The mini-games are a nice addition and definitely add hours of replay value. The progressive jackpot currently stands at several thousand so that is something quite lucrative to aim for when spinning those reels. I found this slot to be of Medium volatility so you could be waiting a while before those cats decide to smile on you and give a nice win!
Bag a furry good win in 9 Lives!
