Head to Antarctica for some slapstick South Polar action in Penguin Splash, a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot powered by Rabcat. This simple slot comes with a bonus feature that awards up to 25 free spins. Try and skate off with a jackpot from between 25p and £50 per spin.

The cartoon style visuals on display in Penguin Splash are well done – the reels are encased within an iceberg and feature 10, J, Q and K playing card values alongside a seal, a walrus, a polar bear and a great whale. The whale is comfortably the most rewarding symbol on show here. Land 5 of them in a single payline and you can look forward to a payout of some 800 times your total stake. A minimum 25p spin could deliver a massive £200 return on a single spin!

The fish is the game’s wild – it doesn’t offer any specific payouts but substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. The penguin is that scatter – land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature.

You will be rewarded with between 5 and 25 free spins. It’s here that the penguins on the ice floe to the left of the reels come into play. A random number of them will dive into the water to reveal a number of free spins. If 2 penguins remain on the ice floe, all payouts during the free spins feature are boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled. You can trigger more free spins here so hope to see the penguins waddle into view.

Penguin Splash is pretty simple fare as far as features go – the imagery and soundtrack are top notch as usual from this developer though and make this game an entertaining one to play. We’d rate it as a low to medium variance slot.

There’s nothing especially innovative on offer here but for some amusing, well-designed action, you won’t go far wrong with Penguin Splash. Saying that, I prefer more complex offerings with Dragon’s Myth from Rabcat worth trying. If it’s penguins you’re after, Ash Gaming’s Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure features them.
