As IGT’s first 100 online payline game, this 100 Pandas slot machine grows on the success of its brick and mortar machine and fellow video slots.
An Asian slot theme, with a twist, you’ll enter forests filled with bamboo, lotus flowers and, obviously, pandas. Add the lower paying Chinese styled A – 9 symbols, and the game is set.
A soft musical backing track accompanies you as you spin along, with some Asian style sound effects on a win. Surprisingly the music doesn’t get as annoying as some other online slot machines.
However, what makes this 100 payline slot a little more exciting from others is the stacked wilds that can combine to create some thrilling base game and free spin wins.
Unfortunately, we have found that this is one of those slot games can drain your casino balance fairly quickly as you search for the free spin bonus game to trigger. As that’s where the biggest wins and highest returns are going to come into play, so just be a little careful.
The trio of pandas walking on a dark moonlit background is the wild symbol, and replace all the other symbols we mentioned above, except the yin yang scatter.
We like that you get stacked wilds throughout – it means you can get some decent winning combinations in the base game as you wait for the free spins. With those 100 paylines and the potential to get a few reels of wilds, it allows for some good thrills at all times.
And is’t that all we want from a simple IGT slot. The chance to win big at any time.
That said, The stacked wilds don’t come around as often as with, say, the Game of Thrones slot machine, for example.
This is where this 100 Pandas slot game comes in to its own. Find three scatters across the three central reels and you’ll instantly trigger 10 free spins, plus a 2x your bet win.
Unlike other IGT slots where you are rewarded with multipliers or higher paying symbols, what you get is the same standard paying symbols and experience in the base game apart from a slightly darker theme.
It might not sound like too much fun, but these free spins can be re-triggered by finding 3 more scatters on reel 2, 3, and 4, up to a maximum of 255 spins.
Obviously you have to be super lucky to trigger them that many times but we’ve managed to trigger them again once and had a decent 60x to 100x our bet win on average.
Though if you only get one set, expect a far more subdued 20x – 30x – but that’s without a mega stacked wild combination.
As the sequel to the Wolf Run and Wild Wolf slots, this game aims to attract all sorts of players.
And with a betting range up going up to a whopping 5000 per spin at some casinos (most 1,000), crazy people will find IGT video slot a simple yet fun high limit game.
The Asian slot theme and music accompanies the game well, and those 100 pay lines and potential for multiple stacked wilds across the five reels add to the thrills.
What this game lacks though is the constant action that comes with many other medium variance games. Yes the potential to win big is there, but the return to player rate ranging from 93.04 – 96.52% is on the lower scale.
100 Pandas video slot is for those who like the casino floor game and are after some simple slot action with a budget and patience to wait for those wilds to line up just right.
