Wild Panda Slot Review
Wild Panda is a 5 reel, 3 row, 100 payline slot made by Aristocrat. The panda is often used as a national emblem for China – this is another Asian theme game from Aristocrat. For this slot, they used traditional symbols like pagodas, Ching golden coins, ruan (Chinese guitar), umbrellas and koi fish but they used a unique way of triggering the free bonus round by spelling panda. The game background is pandas’ favourite food: bamboo. The bamboo is red – a lucky colour for the Asians. Wild Panda slot features, scatters, wild symbols and a free spin bonus.
The minimum stake is 50p per spin with the maximum bet being £50 per spin (for all paylines being active). The pagoda is the highest paying symbol in Wild Panda slot. If you get 5 of them it pays 200 times your stake. The maximum payout is 400 times your stake per payline.
The Ching golden coin symbol is the scatter symbol. The scatter in Wild Panda does not serve to activate any bonus and does not help you complete winning combinations. Five scatters however will multiply your bet by 200x – no matter where the scatters are placed on the reels.
The 5 Free Games feature is activated when you manage to spell PANDA anywhere on the reels – the letters are found on some of kings, queens and jacks. The letters only appear on the reel in order to spell “PANDA” – for instance “P” can only appear on reel 1 and “A” on reel 2 and so on. Once triggered, you are rewarded with 5 free spins.
Wild symbols are added to the feature – all symbols involved into spelling “PANDA” turns into a panda symbol and substitute for all symbols to form winning combinations except for the Ching golden coin scatter symbol. Five panda symbols on an active payline pays 400 times your stake and four pays 200 times your stake.
Wild Panda slot is an attractive game to play because activating all 100 paylines only costs you 50p per spin. It’s a medium variance slot meaning you will get wins often but not as often as if there were a wild symbol to help you complete winning combinations. Most of the time during regular play, the payouts are going to be low to average. The free spin feature is where you can win the most money. It’s a decent game but I much prefer the more well-known Miss Kitty.
