Review of Aristocrat’s Wild Panda Slots Machine
Wild Panda is a recent addition to the Aristocrat series of slots. This game is another Asian themed slot machine which happens to be the primary theme used by Aristocrat. The game comes equipped with fairly good graphics in comparison to other Aristocrat games. Players can look forward to a free games feature, wilds, scatters and a max win of 2000 x line bet.
Please note – this game features 100 pay lines so you will need an above average bankroll to sustain a longer session of play. When you bet on one payline, a second payline is included for free.
Symbols and Theme
Wild Panda slot is equipped with the standard Aristocrat symbols including the K, Q, J, 10 and 9. You will also find other symbols which represent the Panda and its heritage throughout the game. This includes the Panda symbol, regarded in Chinese culture as an animal representing peace and friendship. You will also find a Ruan (the guitar), a Chinese temple, bamboo, a golden Koi fish, apple blossoms, oil paper umbrellas, gong, and the letters P, A, N, D, A which I’ll explain below.
The highest paying symbol outside of the wilds is the temple which will award you with 1000 credits x pay line bet. You must collect all 5 temples on a winning payline to receive this payout. Second up is the Koi, which pays 750 x pay line bet. The scatter symbol is the gong and pays up to 200 x pay line bet.
All wins on the Wild Panda slot machine pay left to right except the scatters which pay in any direction.
The PANDA Letters
The PANDA letters obviously spell Panda and are used in the game. P is only available on reel 1, A on reel 2, N on reel 3, D on reel 4 and finally, the final A is available on reel 5. If you are able to spell the word PANDA anywhere on the five reels, the bonus feature is triggered. Once triggered, the symbols on the reel will disappear leaving the word PANDA written across the center reel and a sprig of bamboo will shoot across the reels. Click the Spin button to start the feature. During the feature, the wild symbol will replace all K and Q.
Overall, this game is fairly basic in comparison to other Aristocrat games like Buffalo or Wicked Winnings, but it does provide a decent bonus feature where your wins can add up quickly.
