NextGen Gaming has set loose panda bears in its new online slot release “PandaMania™.” The game is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot with panda bears that will endear themselves to slot players as their lovable antics will possibly result in hours of fun.
An animated popcorn-eating panda is the Wild symbol that substitutes for the regular icons once it appears anywhere on the reels. From time to time slot players will see a happy bike-riding panda randomly crossing the screen, turning one or more regular icons into Wild Panda symbols.
The emergence of Wild symbols is great enough because this denotes that more one-of-a-kind regular icons could complete multiple payline combinations, and bring about big wins. In the free spin games, the Panda Wilds pay double and the cheerful bike-riding, Wild-transforming Panda appears more frequently. To activate the Free Game round, which awards 10 bet-free spins, a paid spin must return with three or more “PandaMania” logo anywhere across the reels.
In the Pick Me Game, “PandaMania” players will have a chance to set free one or more pandas still locked-up in their cage. Three Pick Me symbols appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously will activate the bonus game, where players will pick one or more locked-up pandas to set free, and earn surprise cash rewards in return.
A Pick Me choice could also reveal a Pick Again symbol, which of course means selecting another caged-up panda icon and more cash rewards in addition to the prize already won. Another Pick Me revelation is the Win All, which is the best choice at first pick because it means the game will grant all three hidden rewards in the Pick Me game.
