Celebrate Chinese New Year in Style with the Fantastic Feline Slots 

While in the west we’ve already welcomed in 2022, the Chinese New Year is still a little bit away. This coming year marks the Year of the Tiger, and at SpinGenie, we’re itching to get into the spirit which is why we wanted to share with you our favorite cat-themed slots on our site; perfect to honor the coming year. 



Let’s kick off the new year by talking about the KatChing slot machine from Slingo Originals. This punny slot perfectly captures the spirit of Chinese New Year with lucky cats galore. Featuring bright and vibrant colors perfect for starting the new year with a bang. With a 5x3 reel format, this high volatility slot game is designed to be an engaging challenge as its RTP is a bit below the market average at 95%. There’s a great mix of bonus features on offer in the KatChing game such as wild symbols which can award up to 2,500x your wager, the Pawtune Respin, plus a free spins bonus round where up to 30 free spins are up for grabs; talk about the perfect way to get the year of the Tiger started with a bang!

Kitty Payout


Alright, this slot machine may not have the regal and fearsome tiger, but instead focuses on the tiger’s little sibling; cute cats. Full of pastel colors and graphics that seem to have a fluffy or fuzzy aesthetic, the Kitty Payout slot has all the hallmarks you expect from an Eyecon slot. Like KatChing, despite its cute looks, the Kitty Payout slot machine is actually more of a challenge than it first seems as it is played at medium volatility with a lower RTP of 95%. There are 5 reels and 25 pay lines on offer in the Kitty Payout game, and a top prize of 2400x your stake. The bonus features used in this real money slot game are pretty simple, which is in keeping with the way that Eyecon creates its games. On offer are wilds and scatter symbols with the scatter being able to award up to 25 free spins; which is pretty generous as far as free spins bonus rounds go.

Cheeky Cheshire


While Chinese New Year is normally considered an Asian holiday, there’s no reason why you can’t get in on the fun wherever you are in the world! Cheeky Cheshire is a slot game created by Green Jade Games which is inspired by the classic western story; Alice in Wonderland, created by Lewis Caroll. As you may have guessed the iconic character the Cheshire Cat takes center stage in this game which takes place on psychedelic reels worthy of the weird and wonderful Wonderland. Cheeky Cheshire has a generous return to player of 96.24%, but be wary of its high volatility rating. There are 5 reels and 10 pay lines on offer in this game and a top win of 2127x your wager. Bonus features in this game include Random Wilds and Free spins which have sticky wilds included. 

King of Cats


While the Lion may be the focus of the King of Cats slot game from Big Time Gaming (BTG), we feel that the year of the Tiger should be about celebrating all felines from humble house cats to majestic lions. This slot is a Megaways game and therefore boasts an incredible 117,649 win ways. Despite its high volatility, this slot has plenty of potential for many players because it has an incredible RTP of 96.72%. Just like the huge number of pay lines on offer in this game, the King of Cats slot also boasts a jaw-dropping jackpot of 56,620x your wager. Bonus features used in this game include two game modes; the Lion Mode and the Puma Mode, as well as two free spins bonus rounds. 

Dragon Tiger


Finally, let’s actually talk about a Tiger-themed slot machine. Dragon Tiger is a tiger slot created by Pragmatic Play. This slot features reels adorned in golden Chinese imagery and as the mighty animals it is inspired by, isn’t for the faint-hearted thanks to its high volatility rating. There is a positive to this though because the Dragon Tiger game has a great RTP of 96.5% plus a top prize of 18,000x your wager, so if you like high risk/high reward slots, this is probably the title for you. Bonus features of the Dragon Tiger slot machine include up to 20 free spins which can be retriggered, and tons of multiplier values that become active during the free spins bonus round.
