Penguin City is a 5 reel, Win All Ways slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 10p to £125 per spin. Based on penguins trying to escape the mighty Penguin Emperor, it comes with a Penguin Escape Mode feature where wilds are sticky for the respins. With extra sticky wilds on offer, you’ll also benefit with a stacked Emperor Stacked Wild which moves down 1 row with respins awarded.
Visually stunning as you’d expect from an Yggdrasil Gaming production, you are taken to Penguin City where the mighty Penguin Emperor enslaves some flightless fellows in his dastardly food emporium. Symbols on the reels include diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades – you’ll also see food related symbols like kitchen cleavers, soup bowls, fish broth pots, dark soy sauce bottles and noodle boxes.
There’s also a wild symbol which replaces all other symbols on the reels – when you form a winning combination involving a wild in the base game, you will activate the Penguin Escape Mode feature. Once triggered, 1 penguin will try to escape on each spin – unless the Penguin Emperor is present.
If the penguin jumps on the reels, either 1 sticky wild is added to reel 2 or 4 on winning spins or 1 symbol is swapped on reel 3 to create a win on losing spins. Basically, you will get respins until you no longer getting a winning combination.
Now, Penguin City also comes with an Emperor Penguin feature – the stacked Emperor Stacked wild symbol appears on the middle reel in the Penguin Escape Mode feature. When he’s present on the reels, you are guaranteed a winning combination. The stacked Emperor Stacked wild is a walking wild that moves down 1 row per spin until he disappears from the reels.
Penguin City is quite a simple slot really which is all about the wilds and stacked Emperor Stacked wilds – it looks great and focuses on sticky wilds in the Penguin Escape Mode feature. Variance wise it’s in the middle with maximum wins of 1,647 times your stake available on each spin. If you like penguins, I suggest you try Batman & The Penguin Prize from Playtech.
