Welcome to the world of the Lumber Cats. Cartoony slots don’t always do it for me I must admit. I think there are way too many of them available. Thus it was with great trepidation that I fired up this puppy to test it out. I was pleasantly surprised. Not that it isn’t cartoony – it obviously is. But I found the theme working nicely for me, and because of that the game is fun to play.
The details are boring but necessary. This is a 20 line, 10 coin per line 5 reel video slot ; with coin sizes ranging from 0.01 to 0.2. It has a few of the modern features that make today’s slots so much fun; but not overly so. Only the Wilds and scatters animate; which works out just fine.
The game features two bonuses – a free spins and a tree climb game.
The tree climb is a simple pick 1 of 3. You predict which cat will win the tree climbing race. It’s cute, and quick – which makes it unobtrusive, and an enjoyable break. Plus – the skinny guy doesn’t always win.
The Free Spins game is a unique combination. You have to hit the log symbol on both 1 and 5; and a wild in the middle reel to activate. However, when it does – the entire middle reel becomes wild (with a cute animation to boot) and will remain wild for all 5 free spins. Plus, they add the logs as extra wild symbols to up your potential to hit winning combos. The game is a return to simpler games, and is enjoyable and fun to play. I played it for this test at Platinum Play , but you can try it at any of these casinos now.
Playing Online Baccarat
Players can bet on either Punto or Banco or, at times, Stand-off. The dealer gives out two cards each, first to the player and then to the banker. A third card may be dealt. Dealer customarily bets on Banco. Players may pass the Shoe to the next player, deciding not to deal. The Shoe stays with the player if the bank wins. When Punto wins the Shoe passes to the next player.
- Minimum of 2, maximum of 3 cards
- 2 cards are placed face-down under the Shoe
- The player with the largest bet on Punto is given 2 cards, face-down
- Punto player looks at cards, gives them to the person who dealt them
- This player turns the cards over
- A casino dealer announces the results and the winner
When there is a total of 8 or 9 in either hand, this is called a Natural. No more cards are dealt. When it’s not a Natural, the dealer may instruct that a third card be dealt.
Whether you are playing in a casino or enjoying online Baccarat, the objective of the game is to guess and bet on the hand that has the highest total value. The hand with the highest count wins!
