SkyCity Queenstown has been an important supporter of the Winter festival since the casino was first opened in 2000. Ever since SkyCity obtained full ownership of the Queenstown casino in 2012, the company has taken on a bigger role in the event by offering an extended entertainment programme at SkyCity Queenstown and SkyCity Wharf Casino.
To play blackjack, players place their bets and they are dealt two face up cards. The dealer usually gets one face up and another face down card. Based on the cards in front of them, players decide whether to hit (draw cards), stand (split), double down (place additional wager) or split (split cards in two hands). If the dealer has an Ace, players can also take insurance and get half of their original bet back. Insurance pays 2 to 1.
With red, gold and black taking over the screen, this pokie highly references the East Asian culture. It includes dragon icons, along with a yin/yang symbol and the number 8 which is considered lucky in Chinese culture.

The other symbols feature a woman smiling while holding lipstick, another woman holding a cookbook thoughtfully, and a third woman pouting in the bath, all paying from 1,000 to 1,250 coins for five symbols while playing max bet.

In all honesty, we had no idea what was going on for the first 30 minutes of playing Astro Cat slot. Moreover, we spent another half an hour looking at the rules of the game and the paytable. In spite of the confusion, in the end, we liked Astro Cat slot, mainly because it comes with one truly unique feature called the REELFECTA. We haven’t yet seen anything like it. Once you understand how this particular part of the game works, everything comes into place.

The symbols look rich and colorful, you won’t see any stock symbols like numbers and letters. All of them have their own unique animations which you can see whenever they form a winning line. Besides the spooky members of the Grave Family there are delicious treats like strawberries in chocolate, cookies, candy apples, muffins and blueberries. Careful with them, you don’t want a sugar rush. The Wild Symbol is Jacky the Wild Jack O’ Lantern. It substitutes for all other symbols to form a winning line except the scatter. Speaking of scatters, they are represented with the Witch who holds a candy cane. If you hit 3 of these on reels 1, 2 and 3 you trigger the Free Spin feature with a 4x multiplier on the next 10 Free Spins. If you hit 3 or more scatters during the Free Spins you will retrigger it winning another 10 Free Spins making it a total of 20.
