Most people have a fondness for animals, whether keeping them as pets or watching them in the wild. The designers at Arrow’s Edge have picked up on that sentiment, creating a number of online pokies featuring creatures that walk, crawl, or swim.

This article focuses on the best animal pokies from Arrow’s Edge. There are four entries in all, and they range from the traditional to the experimental.

The games listed below are also available for mobile devices. This is a major plus, allowing you to rack up big wins while waiting in line to buy groceries or sitting on your sofa.

Animal Arcade

This pokie has a much different layout than the usual slot machine. Instead of spinning reels, it presents a rectangular layout filled with animal symbols.

Each turn, you can bet on one or more of the animal icons. If the highlighter lands on your selected creature, then you win based on your wager and the symbol’s accompanying multiplier.

There’s a free spin space that allows for an additional chance of winning at no extra cost. The game also includes a double win space, which immediately doubles your chances of a payday.

The average RTP for the game is listed at 94.39%. The minimum is 94.35%, and the maximum is 94.44%.

Kate’s Waddle

This pokie is set in an arctic locale and features an adorable penguin named Kate. Instead of the usual reels, it features a 10×10 grid of symbols. Each turn, the symbols are rearranged, and you win by getting combos ranging from six to 100 icons.

In order to win free spins, you’ll need to get from five to nine free spin icons. The number of free games will match the number of symbols. Also, the reels will temporarily collapse from 10×10 to as little as 5×5. If an orca jumps in front of the screen during play, you’ll receive an additional three spins.

If you get 100 wild symbols, you’ll win the top prize worth 50,000x your wager. There are also three progressive jackpots that can appear on any spin during the base game. The Mystery Jackpot hits when it reach $10,000, while the Cash Grab Jackpot pays at around $2,000 to $5,000. Finally, there’s the Super Slots Jackpot, which normally hits when it’s between $40,000 and $45,000.

Panda Planet

This Asian-themed pokie is filled with cuddly animals and lots of bamboo. It has 1,024 ways to win, and the layout is more in keeping with traditional pokies (as opposed to the previous two entries).

The Yin Yang symbol has a great deal of importance in the game. It serves as the wild, and it can expand both horizontally or vertically. In some instances, it can even grow to cover a 4×4 grid. When it lands in one of the corners, it also becomes a sticky wild for five spins.

The bonus is known as the Colossal Wheel Free Spins, and there are two ways to trigger it. When this occurs, the middle three reels merge into a giant 3×3 grid. The player then receives either three, five, or 10 free spins.

The largest fixed jackpot in Panda Planet is worth 400x your wager. However, there are also two progressive jackpots to look forward to. The Cash Grab Jackpot normally hits when it’s worth somewhere between $2,000 and $5,000. Meanwhile, the Super Slots Jackpot pays in the $40,000 to $45,000 range.

Lilly’s Pad

This 5-reel, 18-payline pokie features Lilly, a cute frog with a passion for playing the banjo. She’s also joined by a number of other creatures, such as crocodiles, lizards, and dragonflies.

The random Dragonfly Wild Feature includes an overlay with three possible patterns. Depending on which pattern appears, all the symbols in the overlay become wild during that particular spin.

The bonus round triggers when three frog icons appear on the reels. You’ll then see a screen filled with 12 lily pads. Each of these has a hidden value, and the possible payouts are shown on the side of the screen. You’ll start by choosing a lily pad. Then, during the course of several rounds, you’ll eliminate the hidden bonus amounts. You can stop at any time, but the objective is to be left with the most valuable lily pad.

There are also two progressive jackpots. The first, known as the Mystery Progressive Jackpot, pays out as soon as it hits $10,000. The second, the Super Slots Progressive Jackpot, traditionally hits around $45,000.
