Pelican Pete Slot Review

Pelican Pete is an Aristocrat-powered video slot which is a land-based classic and is finally available to play online for real money. Based on the quirky pelican (whose name is Pete), it has 5 reels and 50 paylines. 1 credit will buy 2 paylines meaning you can play all 50 paylines from just 25p a spin to as much as £500.00 a spin. In terms of the theme, it has a seaside type of feel to it with starfish, anchors, fish, treasure chests and lighthouse on the reels.

Pelican Pete is quite a simple looking slot game and doesn’t have graphics and animations as sharp as the newer releases you’ll find here at However, like other Aristocrat slots, it retains its charm for some reason and make them very appealing to slot lovers such as myself.

This game is all about the Sticky Wild Free Games feature which can be triggered when you get 3 scattered lighthouse symbols – these only appear on reels 1, 2 and 3. This will reward with 10 free spins. Now, look out for the Pelican Pete wild symbol on reels 2, 3, 4 and/or 5 as they will remain fixed in that position for the remainder of the feature – yes, sticky wilds!

I’ve managed to get quite a few wilds during the feature which has resulted in me winning over 300 times my stake on a couple of occasions now. It reminds me a little of Aristocrat’s Miss Kitty slot which works similarly and can be highly rewarded. Finally, look out for the lighthouse scatter during the feature appearing beneath the Pelican Pete wild as this can give an extra 5 free spins.

Pelican Pete is a classic Aristocrat slot and I’m happy that it’s finally available to play online – you can play it at the reputable BetVictor Slots who have also added Geisha (review coming soon). This is a medium to high variance game which can give you huge wins in the feature but you need to be patient and hope you get a few sticky wilds on the reels early on.
