How to Play Astro Cat
Astro Cat is an NJ online casino Asian-themed game played on 8 reels with 1,296 ways to win. The reelset is configured in a 2-2-4-4-4-4-2-2 layout, with the outer four reels acting as individuals, and the center 4 reels acting as one. It’s called the Reelfecta.
Your symbols consist of a dragon, frog, koi fish, bonsai plant and a decorative fan, as well as the 9-10-J-Q-K-A. You also have a Wild Cat, which appears on reels 3 and 4 only, and a Fireworks Bonus, which acts as a Scatter.
Five or more of these NJ online casino bonus symbols in the Reelfecta will trigger the Free Spins Bonus.
After your first 3 free spins, starting at the top left corner and moving clockwise on the outer potion of the Reelfecta, you’ll see either a Wild Cat or a Poison symbol. The Wild Cat will lock in place and give you an extra spin.
These can add up and pay big. But…if the Poison appears, free spins end and you’re only paid 2x your bet amount. During this round if you manage to get all 12 outer positions on the Reelfecta filled with Wild Cats, you get 1 Mega Spin.
During the Mega Spin, the Wild Cat expands to cover all 16 positions within the Reelfecta, which can make for a very dramatic—and large—win.
As daunting as this game may seem, it can be a lot of fun and you’ll get the hang of it quickly enough.
What are Golden Points?
Golden Points are a bonus earned by registered players of the Golden Rewards Club by engaging in promotions—like the one above, making deposits, playing your favorite games and opting in to special promotions that Golden Nugget makes available. Point distribution is as follows:
- Wager $100 on slots = 5 points (which are doubled during this promotion)
- Wager $100 on table games, videopoker, Blackjack or roulette = 1 point
- Wager $100 on sports = 1 point
- Each day you deposit between $50-$99 = 20 points
- Each day you deposit $100 or more = 40 points
Golden Points can then be redeemed for cash credits to play online. For every 100 points you will earn $1 cash credit.
Newest Games at Golden Nugget
After you’re done playing Astro Cat for Double Golden Points, try out one of Golden Nugget’s latest slot additions:
Da Vinci Ways: This slot features some of the most celebrated painting by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci. In addition to 4 of the artist’s famous paintings, symbols include 3 gemstones, a Diamond Wild and a Free Games symbol.
The Wild only appears of reels 2, 3 and 4. This slot also employs the Tumbling Reels feature, but the paylines are more typical, with 243 ways to win. With this slot, you’ll also need 3 Free Games symbols to trigger the Free Games Bonus.
Here you’ll get 10 free spins on a different reelset.
Magnificent Jewels: Rather than your traditional paylines, Magnificent Jewels has Cluster Bucks. This feature pays for adjacent groupings of symbols, linked horizontally or vertically. You’ll need 5 or more clustered symbols for a win.
This slot also employs Tumbling Reels, aka Cascading Reels. When you get a winning payline, all symbols in that payline disappear and new symbols take their place for potential additional wins.
As long as you get a win, those reels keep tumbling, which can make for some hefty payouts. To trigger the Free Games Bonus, you’ll need 3 shopping bags, anywhere on lines 2, 3, and 4. You’ll get 7 free spins on a different reelset.
