Cat & Mouse from mFortune: Slot Review - catch that pesky rodent!
Cat & Mouse is a game exclusive to mFortune and it is all about a wily cat trying to catch a crafty mouse. This slot is clearly inspired by the old Tom and Jerry cartoons where a cat was driven mad while trying to snare a clever little mouse. I remember watching that cartoon as a kid so I was quite eager to try out this slot and see how close it replicates the madcap adventures of the feline and the rodent.
It is a 5 reel slot game with 9 paylines and comes with free spins, a progressive jackpot and a Cat & Mouse Chase Trail mini-game.
The first feature to mention is the Wild symbol and it is depicted by a picture of the cute mouse. It substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus Game and Scatter symbols. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you are fortunate enough to land 5 Wild symbols then you will be treated to a lovely 2,000X your initial bet.
The Scatter symbol in this game is illustrated by the Cat and you will win a prize no matter where on the reels this symbol appears. It is possible to win from 10X to 100X for landing 3 or more of these symbols anywhere in view. If you do land 3 or more Scatter symbols then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. If you land 3 of these symbols then you will be given 5 Free Spins, whereas 5 symbols will give you 9 Free Spins.
The last feature to mention is the Cat & Mouse Chase Trail mini-game. To trigger this game you need to land 2 or more Mouse in the Hole symbols. The more symbols you get then the more you will win in the mini-game. In this game, you are the mouse who is being chased by the cat and the objective of the game is to stay ahead of the cat for as long as possible. To move the mouse, you need to roll a dice and then the mouse will move for a certain number of spaces. The amount of rolls you survive and the squares you land on will determine what kind of payout you will receive. You can win double your money in this feature and there is the potential for a huge payout as well so make sure to avoid the cat at all costs!

Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game features some very cute graphics and it is very bright and colourful. It has a real cartoon feel so if you are a fan of Tom and Jerry or Itchy and Scratchy then you will be instantly drawn to this game. Symbols range from mousetraps, cheese, and of course the cat and the mouse and they are neatly drawn and would not look out of place in a kids cartoon from the 1960s.
The game features some nice sound effects when you land some wins on the reels but there is not that much music in this game except when you trigger the bonus game and it is a nice bouncy tune as you try to wriggle away from the advances of the cat.

Our Verdict on Cat & Mouse
Cat & Mouse is made by mFortune and it is a really fun slot to play. Admittedly, there are not that many features to the game but I found that the Free Spins feature popped up on a frequent basis and gave out some decent payouts. I really enjoyed playing the Cat & Mouse mini-game although the Cat caught me way too quickly on many occasions! It is also nice the game features a lucrative progressive jackpot so players have something big to aim for when they play this slot.
Avoid those feline claws at all costs in Cat & Mouse!
