How to play Pretty Kitty
Pretty Kitty is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win pokie with a nice RTP percentage of 97%. The minimum bet is $0.30 which is higher than payline Microgaming minimum bets, but this is due to the ways to win format.
The backdrop isn’t exquisite – it’s simply a purple a velvet background – but it is meant to indicate a posh luxury feel for these felines. These pretty kitties are very well pampered, so much so they’re covered in diamonds and colourful gems.
There’s also elevator music paired with the mechanical sounds of the reels, which is a bit disappointing since this is a mid-2016 release and we’ve heard this numerous times before. You can mute the audio via the audio button in the top right hand corner, however.

Pretty Kitty symbols
Microgaming have laced the reels with colourful gems, which sort of tie in with the theme thanks to the diamond collar symbol.
These gems represent the lower value symbols with a minimum of three of the same coloured gems paying out. The payouts are dependant on your bet, with the maximum payout with these low value symbols set at $125, by spinning five of the red gems at max bet.
The rest of the symbols are represented by cats. There’s the less expensive breeds representing the middle paying symbols, including the orange tabby and the grey shorthair, while the Siamese, the longhaired kitty, and the Persian cats all represent the higher paying symbols. Five Persian cats pay the top for these symbols with a payout of $250 at the max bet.
These symbols can appear Stacked and then Expand, which we will detail below.
There’s also two other symbols to keep an eye out for.
Wild: The Wild symbol is represented by the pokies’ logo and it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. At least three offer a payout, with five offering $300 if playing at the maximum bet.
Scatter: The Scatter symbol is the diamond collar and offers a huge payout of $7500 if you manage to spin five at maximum bet. Additionally, at least three will trigger the Free Spins feature.

Pretty Kitty in game features
There’s nothing new when it comes to the features on Pretty Kitty, unfortunately – we’ve seen the free spins and the Expanding Wilds before.
All cat symbols can appear stacked on the reels, and if one reel features a winning Stacked combo of cats it will expand on other reels where the same symbol appears, for big wins.
If you manage to spin at least three Scatter symbols you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Here you will receive 15 free spins, with one reel featuring Stacked Wilds, while additional Wilds and Stacked cats can expand for big wins. If you spin another three Scatters during this feature, you will score an additional 15 free spins.
Play Pretty Kitty for free
Microgaming’s sport themed 243 ways to win pokies, such as Cricket Star, offer the same Expanding Wild features and Free Spins, so all that is new is the theme.
It took us quite some time to trigger the free spins unfortunately, but once we did we managed to spin three more scatters to score 30 free spins. We also won big with the Expanding Stacked symbols, and thanks to the 97% RTP we won quite often. This newest Microgaming pokie isn’t bad, it’s just more of the same.
