Panda’s Fortune is a recent release from Pragmatic Play, where the developer chose to create a Chinese style slot machine, with the Panda Bear being in the center of everyone’s attention. Though it’s not a very rare theme, the quality of the design is high and might just make up for that.
As for what the game actually has to offer, we have 5 reels inside, with 25 active lines selected for each spin. The game will have rewards of up to $1,000 to offer in its regular combinations, but it gets a lot better in its features, and up to $100,000 will be offered as part of its fixed jackpot. Those looking for the features of the slot, will discover that it has wilds, scatters, free spins and stacked symbols, as well as a Jackpot Feature.
Betting and Prizes
In regards to the wagers that you can place, there you will find the standard system that Pragmatic Play tends to replicate across most of their slots. There are a maximum of 10 coins selectable per line, with the lines being fixed at 25. For the 25 to 250 coins which are used, there are denominations that start from $0.01 and reach $0.50. Overall, you are going to use a betting range between $0.25 and $125.
The fixed jackpots are the ones of real interest here, as the regular combinations don’t pay more than $1,000. Get the Grand Jackpot though, and you could win up to $100,000, which is the equivalent of 800x your bet for the round. The Major Jackpot will pay $25,000, while the Minor Jackpot offers at most $3,125. The announced RTP for Panda’s Fortune is 96.17%, and that’s perfectly fine for a slot in this category.
Panda’s Fortune Slot Features
If you see the Panda Bear make an appearance, then you will be able to use this symbol to form new combinations if some requirements are met. As a wild symbol, which appears on the last four columns, it can be part of any combo as a substitute, provided that it’s not required to act as a replacement for a bonus symbol.
Bonus symbols are the ones marked as such, while sporting the Yin Yang logo on them. As scatters, these symbols can make their appearance anywhere in view, and they will offer you a reward of 2x, 15x or 100x total bet based on the number of times it showed up. The same 3 to 5 symbols are going to also trigger 8, 10 or 15 free spins for you.
The free spins are different from the regular ones, and a big feature in them is the presence of stacked symbols on the last four reels. These symbols are transformed into a random symbol at the end of the round.
Golden symbols are present on the 5th reel, and they are gold made versions of regular symbols. The three jackpots are won when you form combinations of certain symbols, with a golden icon on the last column.
Theme & Design
Panda’s Fortune is giving us a Chinese theme, as do dozens of other slot machines that have a focus on the same creature that is famous for its connection to this country. The Panda is one of the symbols, the Yin Yang logo is another, and then there are also butterflies, lions, frogs, fish and bonsai trees. The six poker cards are the last ones on the list, as usual.
Those jackpots should give you all the reason you could need to try the game out, but otherwise I’m not impressed with the theme, design or even its more basic features.
