Do chubby felines make successful explorers? it’s a question which has dogged the archeological community for generations but we’re about to find out the truth by playing 2 Fat Cats – Lost Ark, an online slot from Inspired Gaming which offers a pharaoh’s fortune in bonus features and the optional Fortune Bet.
2 Fat Cats – Lost Ark is a five reel slot with four rows and twenty fixed paylines; those gold-rimmed reels spin on a large stone structure in front of which stand our two slightly overweight cats – Chip and Ace.
The higher value symbols include the 2 Fat Cats logo, a glowing cup, a pouch of jewels, a golden skull and a hat; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild symbol is a big ‘Wild’ which will replace all others to help form winning combinations apart from the glowing blue scatter symbol.
The Fortune Bet is an optional extra wager which will increase your stake by 50% and double the height of the scatter symbols, making it easier to trigger the main feature.
This is triggered by landing three of the blue scatter symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five after which you’ll be shown a screen displaying a number of boxes – just click a box to reveal one of the following features:
- Chip & Ace – awards five free spins with sticky winning symbols.
- Ace – awards five free spins with wandering wild symbols.
- Chip – awards five free spins with extra golden symbols – wins with golden symbols are multiplied by 2x.
- Snake Pit – awards a ‘deal or no deal’ game in which you select baskets and accept or reject the offered amount.
- Golden Scratch Post – you’ll have to find three golden paws behind three boxes to trigger this but when you do the cats will scratch their posts to earn money until the rocks fall.
- Scaredy Cat – help Chip and Ace across the tiles by avoiding the trap doors to win cash prizes.
Scarab Reel Bonus
This occurs randomly in the base game and you’ll see the ark underneath the reels open and disgorge scarab beetles of purple and green which add themselves to the reels; purple scarabs turn into bonus symbols while green scarabs become one of the high value symbols.
We still don’t know whether cats are efficient explorers but we can say that 2 Fat Cats is an enjoyable slot with a wide variety of bonus features which don’t seem to be too tricky to trigger, especially with the Fortune Bet active; it’s certainly worth a few spins and comes with an RTP of exactly 95.00%.
