Happy Panda Slot Game
NetEnt’s Happy Panda slot game boasts a selection of features which will certainly satisfy the whims and expectations of a vast majority of punters. This slot game has been set in the midst of the bamboo forests of the Fast East. This Asian themed slot game portrays the tranquil and lush natural beauty where some of the most majestic and much loved exotic creations, among them the panda, call home. The game pays homage to a beautiful and iconic creature whose image brings a immediate smile on the face of anyone who beholds it. A much celebrated inhabitant of this planet who was fortunately brought back from the brink of extinction. Take yourself on an adventurous journey in a land rich with incredible diversity, watch those wild life symbols- pandas, koi, carp and an array of bird life and exotic plants, land on your reels and render you winnings which can pay out up to 80x your bet stake.
Facts and features
Happy Panda is set on 5 reels stacked on 3 rows within which there are 20 fixed pay ways that hold a maximum potential of 80,000 coins. Displayed on the reels we have the traditional black jack suits which are the usual standard low paying symbols and in this slot are designed in bamboo leaf fashion to further compliment the theme. Then come the higher value symbols that consist of a array of iconic far eastern creatures such as the majestic pandas, koi, carp, ducks, birds, flowers and bamboo shoots. The highest paying symbol in this slot game is the bamboo shoot which has a payout of 2x the total bet when you land three, 5.5x if you land four and a whooping 80x your stake should five of them appear on your reels. Furthermore the potential for winnings can reach to an impressive 1,600x your bet if you manage to land reels full of Bamboo shoots or wild cards.
The Wild, or the Gift of the double Wild
The Happy Panda is the wild symbol here. It can appear on all five reels and substitutes for all other symbols to help create, as well as complete winning combinations. Of course, all cards except for the bonus card and the scatter. However this slot game also comes with the Falling Wild feature which means it sticks when it lands and drops a row with every re-spin until it eventually vanishes from sight at the bottom of the reels, but should you land a second wild on the same reel, it will transform into a full wild and can trigger some very rewarding combinations. This is called the Gift of the Double Wild which is one of the more exciting features of Happy Panda slot. The Falling Wild is also awarded during the Free Spins whenever a wild lands on the reels, as this expands and sets it off. The Free Spins feature, on the other hand, is activated by the appearance of three Lotus flower symbols, for which you will get 5 free spins. Add another lotus flower for 8 and 12 free spins when five of these exotic flowers show up on the reels. And that’s not all, there is still more to be had!
Big Paws, Big Pays
The highlight of any slot game is obviously the part where the biggest wins can be landed. Without a doubt this is where that place is in Happy Panda and it’s called the Giant Panda Jackpot .Land at least a minimum of three Golden Panda Paws and you could very well be on your way to making some serious windfalls. The randomly dropped bonus symbols stick and remain in place, each with a value of anywhere between 10 and all the way up to 200x your stake. There are three jackpots the player can be in for depending on how many of the rows you manage to complete with the symbols.
The Three jackpots
Happy Panda does not come with a single jackpot, but with three. One of which is progressive. Fill one row of Bonus symbols and you in for the Minor jackpot that will render you 20x your stake. Fill two rows of Bonus symbols and you have landed yourself the Major jackpot of a hefty 100x your stake, but with three rows of Bonus symbols you have hit the Mega jackpot which is a progressive jackpot that begins at a staggering 10,000 coins and you may well be on your way to this slot game’s highest potential payouts. As a high variance slot game Happy Panda has a progressive jackpot which can statistically reach a pay out of up to 1600x your stake on a single spin. This is most likely to occur during the free spins with the aid of multiple wild reels. But as with all slots, don’t hold your breath for this!
Without hesitation Happy Panda is packed with features that make it a prime game to play. It offers much of what gamers need to keep their pulse raised and the finances sound. I wouldn’t expect to land myself the grand jackpot any time soon, but the pay table is what one may call fair and the RTP of 96.64% is nothing to write home about, but not any worse than the average. The set up is clean, easy on the eyes and also pleasant on the ears with collaborating aspects of visuals and audio soundtrack. The interface is also simple to understand and follow and does not require any explanation to master. The graphics are not too elaborate and apart from a few blinking eyes, there is nothing much else going on during the base game. The three jackpots are a major plus to the whole package, the prime feature being the Mega Jackpot as things really start to take a turn for the better. This is a slot game which will not impress punters with any new innovative mechanics, but will certainly not disappoint players who want to spend some time trying their fate.
