Pink Panther Slot Review
Pink Panther is a Playtech-powered video slot with 5 reels and 40 paylines. Based on the comedy series that started in the 1960s, Pink Panther has is based on the sill Jacques Clouseau detective. It has 4 bonus features and 2 progressive jackpots. If you get 5 Pink Panther wild symbols, expect 5,000 coins in return. You can play for as little as 40p a spin to £200 a spin.
In terms of features, let’s look at the Pink Pow! feature which is triggered randomly in the main game. You will see the Pink Panther randomly blows up between 2 to 6 symbols and turns them into wilds to give you moderately sized wins.
Then there’s the Crack The Pink Code Bonus feature which is randomly triggered. You will see 10 safes which the Pink Panther opens. They contain free spins, multipliers or an expanding wild on reel 3. He will stop opening safes when a safe contains dynamite. You will then be awarded 2 more free spins and the free games (spins) will commence. You can get between 10 and 29 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
Moving on, you have The Color Pink Bonus feature which is also triggered randomly. The Pink Panther and the little man paint numbers on a wall in blue and pink. Only the pink numbers will count. You can collect the cash prize or try your luck again and play the round up to 3 times. You then have the Wheel of Pink Bonus feature which, as you can guess, is randomly triggered. The Pink Panthers spins 2 wheels with the external wheel will win you cash prizes. The inner wheel displays ‘respin’ or ‘collect’.
Finally, you have the Pink Trail Bonus feature which is my favourite (and randomly triggered). Inspector Clouseau will follow footprints for 4 rounds to find the stolen diamond. Every footstep awards you with a cash prize. At the end of each round, you are asked to ‘Continue’ or ‘Collect’. Continuing could land you in a trap that halves your prizes. If you get through all 4 rounds, you will find the diamond and your winnings will be doubled.
There’s also 2 progressive jackpots (Major Pink and Minor Pink) which is known as The Jackpot Adventure. They are also triggered at random. The higher your stake will result in a higher chance of trigger the jackpot game. Once in, you are faced with 12 doors which uncover characters. If you uncover 5 Pink Panther doors will win you the Major Pink jackpot. Uncovering 4 Inspector Clouseau doors wins you the Minor Jackpot whilst uncovering 3 Little Man doors will give you the consolation prize. It would be a shame to get there and then get the consolation prize though!
As you can see, Pink Panther is packed full of features which are fun to play. You will trigger them often too but prizes won’t be as high as with other slots. However, this will ensure your bankroll lasts a while which is good. You can win some decent amounts from the free spins feature but don’t hold your breath for a big win – for that, I would recommend WMS Gaming’s Black Knight II – truly superb.
