Theme of The Game
“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse”. Is there anyone out there who’s not familiar with this line and the famous American movie by Francis Ford Coppola? Not likely! If we needed more evidence how popular The Godfather was and still is, we’d only have to look at number of slots inspired by this film.
Pragmatic Play is one of those who chose it as an inspiration for their game, only they delivered it via feline characters. Godfather becomes Catfather and also comes in sequels.
The original one, developed by the same company, featured 9 paylines, paid both ways and provided random stacked Wilds and Free Spins. Now the most feared feline is back, so let’s see what new tricks it has learnt in meantime.
Pragmatic Play is a provider of mobile and desktop online casino games, first founded in 2008 as TopGame. Following numerous complaints, a group of investors purchased a part of company’s assets under the Pragmatic Play brand. Today they provide more than 150 games delivered in HTML5 and Flash technology.
Pragmatic Play portfolio includes a variety of different casino games but the company is clearly focused on developing slots. They cover a wide range of themes, with popular titles including 7 Monkeys, Mighty Kong, Journey to the West, Lady of the Moon and Beowulf.
How To Play
The Catfather II comes with extra paylines, so now you’ll be playing 5 reels and 30 fixed lines. You can stake 1 to 10 coins per line and set coin value from $0.01 to $0.5. This means your total bet can range from $0.3 to $150 per spin.
All of the familiar characters are still here, except for the chubby-faced ginger cat (whatever happened to it?). The man at the top, the Catfather himself, sports a fancy hat and a monocle and leads the group of 3 family members. Rope-tied spectacled Mouse is the only non-feline characters you’ll see on the reels.
Other symbols include Jack to Ace playing card icons. Cats popping out of a box have now taken over the role of Wilds and will substitute for all other symbols except for the Bonus.
The slot still pays both ways, just like its predecessor. Autoplay function enables you to choose as many as 1,000 spins to be played without your involvement.
T&C Apply 18+
After any of the spins finish, a Random Stacked Wild feature may occur. Boxed kitten will jump out to scratch the reel it landed on and make it completely Wild. This can help deliver winning combos during the following spin.
Golden Suitcase is your Scatter icon.
Landing 3 or more simultaneously activates 10 Free Spins and x1, x5 or x15 Multiplier, depending on the number of triggering symbols.
While you’re spinning for free, Random Stacked Wilds will appear on 1 reel at least. If you get additional 3+ Bonus icons, additional 5 Free Spins will be awarded. And there’s no limit to how many times this can happen!
This is a low variance slot with an exceptionally high RTP of 98.10%. The Catfather is most generous of the bunch, cashing out up to 500x your line bet.
Wild will pay 5,000x bet per line for five-of-a-kind which would, if you’re betting max, deliver a jackpot of $25,000. Landing 5 fully stacked Wilds might be a difficult task but, should you be lucky, you could collect an amazing 150,000x your line bet.
If you liked the original, it’s pretty sure you’ll find the sequel equally, if not more, enjoying. Lovely graphics are now supported with a mellow jazzy tune. All of the good ingredients are still here, upgraded with more paylines and some bigger payouts. While part one offered more Free Spins, now you can benefit from up to x15 Multipliers as well.
Betting range is decent enough to satisfy both low and high rollers. If you are a fan of The Godfather series, you might find these kittens too tame. But don’t be fooled by their innocent looks! Generous feline features have the potential to land you big bucks. And that’s an offer you will not want to refuse!
