Big Cat Links Slots

The animal theme is one of - if not the - most popular slot themes. Log on to your favorite online casino and chances are you'll see at least a dozen animal themed slots. RealTime Gaming - RTG - gets in on the trend and takes players to the plains of Africa with their Big Cat Links slot. Usually, animal themed slots have a variety of animal symbols, but Big Cat Links stays true to its name and only features a family of lions. The beautiful background, depicting a night of the safari with a lion looking at a flock of antelope, is the perfect fit for this game. The music is low key and doesn't take away from the game in any way. The lion symbols are detailed and well designed, making Big Cat Links an overall visually appealing game. But will Big Cat Links lead to big wins for players? Let's dive in and find out!

Bets and Paylines

Big Cat Links is a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines. The bet sizes are on the low side, ranging from $1.00 to $5.00. So if you're a high roller, Big Cat Links probably isn't one you'll want to spin on.

Play Symbols

Big Cat Links has a smaller collection of symbols than most slots, but they still have premiums and non-premiums…

The LION is top symbol. 5 of those and players will feel as if they're the king of the jungle!

The LIONESS is second symbol.

And the final premium is the LION CUB.

The non-premium symbols are the standard JACK, QUEEN, KING and ACE playing cards.

The MASK is the WILD symbol and substitutes for all symbols EXCEPT the scatter and gold coins.

The BONUS symbol is the scatter. 3 or more of these trigger the free game feature.

The GOLD COINS are a special symbol. 6 or more of these will trigger the hold and spin feature.

Also to note for players, the LION and LIONESS symbols can appear as oversized on any spin - either 2×2 or 3×3.

Special and Bonus Features

Big Cat Links has two special features that players will want to know about…

  • Free Spins

This feature is triggered when a player spins into 3 or more BONUS SCATTER symbols. 3 BONUS symbols awards 10 free spins. 4 BONUS symbols awards 15 free spins. And 5 BONUS symbols awards 20 free spins.

If a player spins into 3 or more BONUS symbols they will be awarded 5 extra free spins.

  • Fortune Link Feature

This is Big Cat Link's version of the popular 'hold and spin' feature. In order to trigger this feature, players need to spin into 6 or more COLD COIN symbols. When they do, those symbols will stay in place and the players will then be awarded 3 re-spins. Any additional GOLD COIN that appears will reset the re-spins to 3. The feature ends when either there are no re-spins left or the player fills all the spots with gold coins. If that happens, the player wins the grand jackpot!

To Play Or Not To Play?

That is the question. And the answer is… it depends on the type of player you are. Big Cat Links is a unique slot. It has a great free spin feature AND a hold and spin. Both can lead to some big wins. However, it comes with low bet sizes and a smaller amount of symbols. If you're a high roller then Big Cat Links probably isn't for you. But if you are dealing with a smaller bankroll and don't mind the limited number of game symbols, Big Cat Links is the perfect fit!
