Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead Review
Having made an appearance for the first time in Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, Cat Wilde has been handed her very own online slot for the first time in what’s a massive move for Play’n GO as they look to take a brief step away from Rich Wilde and crown a new heroine.
This Egyptian 5-reel, 10 payline slot is exactly what you’d expect from a game in the Rich Wilde series, highly volatile, feature-rich fun! This superbly designed slot could be considered a 2020 upgrade on The Book of Dead, with the game sharing many similarities.
We’ll admit, we were sceptical at first, we just weren’t sure whether Cat Wilde could fill her father’s iconic boots, but we were wrong to be unsure! Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead is absolutely fantastic and offers plenty in the way of exciting bonus features and mechanics.
Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead is a very well polished game. As mentioned, it’s very similar to Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead (as the name would suggest), vibrant gold and a rich blue are the two primary colours here and it’s pretty pleasing on the eye.
The symbols themselves are incredibly well designed, especially the undead Pharaoh's that appear within the expanded reels, the art in this game is easily amongst the highest quality we’ve ever seen in an online slot, and Play’n GO deserves all the plaudits for this.
In terms of sound, the developers have gone down a similar route to that of Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena. An energetic cinematic score plays as players spin the reels. The music really does make you feel like you’re watching a hit blockbuster play out as your wins rack up.
Like its predecessor in the Wilde series, this is a back-to-basics slot, and that’s most certainly not detrimental to its success. Navigating the game is incredibly easy and there’s no need to worry about what’s going on elsewhere, as everything takes place there and then.
For what is a highly volatile game you’ll be very pleasantly surprised to discover that Doom of Dead is incredibly generous when it comes to expanding wilds. We found that we were seeing them on a very regular basis during the base game.
This slot is potentially the most volatile Wilde slot in the series… So if you have the ability to be patient and wait out the dud spins then big wins are what you’ll eventually come across. With a RTP of 96.29% and a maximum win of 5,000x your initial stake on a single base game spins, we think giving this great slot a spin is a fair shout.
If you couldn’t tell from the rest of this review, we absolutely loved Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead… Perhaps we could even get used to seeing her more than we do her famous Father!
With extended scatters and wilds, plenty of free spins and lucrative big wins on offer there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be playing Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead right now.
