What do you get when a bunch of cool cats overrun the ancient kingdom of Persia? You get a video slot called Pawprints of Purrsia.

Besides the silly wordplay, the game at hand offers an intriguing set of specs and features on a 3×5 reel set and 10 paylines.

I haven’t had the chance to play other games by Kalamba so I don’t have anything to compare this game with. The company behind Pawprints of Purrsia looks like it is an up and coming developer that wants to get your attention.

They didn’t quite hit the nail on its head with the theme, but the extra features, on the other hand, are quite appealing.

For starters, I think it’s a good thing that the developers gave it a high theoretical RTP while pairing that with a high volatility engine. 97.20% for RTP is more than solid for me and it’s one of the reasons why I decided to play Pawprints of Purrsia.

Once you get into the game, you’ll find it has promising potential thanks to the win multipliers and sticky Wilds. Win multiplier symbols can occur both in the base game and during the free spins round. This adds value to the base game without taking away from the thrill of making it to the bonus.

Another highlight is that the symbol payouts are overly generous. I think this is Kalamba Games’ way of saying to slot players out there: “Hey, we are here and we’ve got some awesome games.”

Theme and Design

Kalamba’s graphic designers have placed five felines in silky Middle Eastern attires to look super nice because they represent the high-paying symbols. Each cat is a different breed and has a different role in society, which adds more character to the premise.

The game has a few stimulating visual effects but nothing too wild. Landing a winning outcome invites a glowing purple orb around the paylines – which is cool, but the cats’ symbols barely budge.

I don’t think that most players out there are going to be impressed by the graphics. Pawprints of Purrsia scores on all other fronts, except the design, but don’t let this keep you from trying the game.


  • Wheel Bonus

The main feature of the game is called “Wheel Bonus.” As the name suggests, this involves a random outcome but unlike so many other games, Pawprints of Purrsia is quite generous with the possibilities.

You need three bonus symbols to play for the chance of winning a straight win multiplier on the bonus win or free spins with a win multiplier.

Either way, you’d be in for a surprise thanks to a set of impressive multipliers: x5, x8, x10, x12, x20 and x25 or the balanced take on the free rounds: x1 + 12 spins, x3 + 11 spins and x2 + 12 spins.

  • Multiplier Wilds

I mentioned above that Pawprints of Purrsia comes with Multiplier Wilds. In the base game, the magic lamp symbol gives your potential winnings a boost.

During the free spins, the Wilds stick to their position and remain until the end of the bonus. Also, the number of free spins isn’t fixed. The ball of yarn adds a single spin to your bonus game.

  • Features Summary

The bonus game is straightforward – getting a lump sum sounds good, especially if the value of the win multiplier is higher up on the wheel, like 20x or 25x your win.

I still haven’t won a big win from the feature game, but the potential is clear: lading one or two multiplier wilds during the free spins could grace each one of your payouts, granted you don’t get the x1 mode.

Bets and Payouts

In my experience with Pawprints in Purrsia, the probability machine isn’t too keen to treat you to frequent wins. It makes sense why once you take a look at the paytable.

This is one of those games that has a generous payout structure. Three of a king for any of the cards can pay 0.5x your bet. Maybe this isn’t a lot, but add a multiplier Wild or get a fourth symbol in the works, and you’ve got yourself a fair return of your full bet.

The category of high-paying symbols is notably different. I’ve had few wins consisting of five matching symbols from consisting of the felines (two with the purple and teal cats) – but sadly, no win multipliers were part of those outcomes.

Nevertheless, this is just to underscore that Pawprints of Purrsia has solid potential.

The payouts are as follows:

  • Jack: 0.5x, 1x, 5x
  • Queen: 0.5x, 1x, 5x
  • King: 0.5x, 1x, 5x
  • Ace: 0.5x, 1x, 5x
  • Purple cat: 1x, 2.5x, 10x
  • Teal cat: 1x, 2.5x, 10x
  • Red cat: 2.5x, 5x, 20x
  • Green cat: 2.5x, 5x, 20x
  • Yellow cat: 5x, 10x, 30x


Pawprints of Purrsia is a perfect fit for anyone who is looking for a game that skips on pretentious graphics but provides substance in terms of the gaming experience. Make no mistake, high volatility is really high volatility, so do approach the game carefully.

Strangely enough, in my experience, it was the base game multipliers that tended to save the day. But, as I said earlier, the slot feels unique and I recommend it because of that.
