Kawaii Kitty from Betsoft: Slot Review - the cat's meow of slots!

Meet Kawaii Kitty. An adorable kitten that hails from Japan and is just too cute for words.

In Japanese culture, the term “Kawaii” refers to cuteness and that is what this Betsoft release is all about. Kawaii is a big part of Japanese culture these days as all manner of things have been given a cute makeover such as clothes, toys, entertainment, right through to how people act and behave. Schoolchildren now go to school with a school bag that is designed to look just like a cute looking animal and people make funny poses when taking pictures to look as cute as possible. This game focuses on one such adorable kitty that just might be too “Kawaii” for words to describe!

Kawaii Kitty is a 5 reel slot with 10 paylines and it contains features such as Expanding Wilds, Respins, and a Double Up game.

Special Features

The first thing to mention about this game is the Milk Carton symbol as it is the highest paying symbol in the game. Manage to land 5 of these symbols and you’ll bag yourself a wonderful 250X payout.

The Wild symbol is denoted by a cute set of purple and orange balls of wool. Like most Wild symbols, it substitutes all other symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. The Wild symbol is also integral to activating the main feature of the game. The Wild symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 and when it lands you are in for a real treat as it will expand to fill all positions on a reel. That is not all, as when it is part of a winning combination then the Wild symbols that contributed to the win will remain in place for one more free Respin. It is worth highlighting that Kawaii Kitty pays from left to right as well as from right to left so you are guaranteed some big wins when the Wild symbol expands and contributes to a win.

The last feature is the optional Double Up game. This is activated whenever you form a win on the reels and gives you the opportunity to increase your winnings. To take part in this game, all you have to do is click on the “Double Up” button when it lights up after you have landed a win. The aim of this game is to choose between heads or tails as a golden coin is flipped. Guess correctly and your winnings will be doubled. If you fancy a bigger gamble then you can go all in and risk 100% of your winnings but be warned choose incorrectly and you will lose all of your winnings and be taken back to the main game. You can also choose to collect your current winnings at any time by pressing the “Collect Bank” button while in this feature.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are wonderful and are bursting at the seams with cuteness absolutely everywhere! The Kawaii Kitty sits on a plush blue chair in what looks like a bedroom setting and if you look really closely, you’ll notice some “Kawaii” on the wardrobe and on a flower pot. Symbols are all cat-related and comprise of a hairbrush, some cat food, a bowl, some fish, a cute yellow bow, a milk carton, and a mouse. The animations are excellent as symbols dart along the reels in rapid fashion and you’ll be treated to a nice knitting effect animation whenever the Wild symbol pops up to cover an entire reel.

The music is playful and bouncy with lots of soft claps and light piano sounds. It complements the cute theme of the game nicely.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 5 reels with 10 paylines, a respectable RTP of 95.6% and a rather low maximum payout of 250X.

Our Verdict on Kawaii Kitty

Betsoft created this game and it is a very simple slot to play. There is not too much depth to it when you compare it to other Betsoft titles but the cute theme alone should draw in plenty of players especially those that love cats! The Wild symbol pops up quite often so you’ll be treated to some nice free respins on a regular basis and the payouts can be highly rewarding. I found this slot to be of low variance so you won’t be waiting too long before you land a catnip sized win!
