Review of Playtech’s Pink Panther Video Slot
March 28, 2014
The Pink Panther is a very well-known cartoon character who has been seen in several different types of media including television shows, books, and films. Playtech has built a video slot around the Pink Panther which includes enough perks and features to do this brand justice. There are two different progressive jackpots in this game and five different bonus features, so there's plenty to get excited about.
This Pink Panther slot uses a 40 payline layout with five reels. You can bet up to 10 coins on each of those paylines, and since it has a coin size range of $0.01 to $5.00 each, the minimum bet size per spin is $0.40. It has a maximum bet size per spin of $2,000, though we doubt many people would ever be interested in playing that high. With so many features and jackpots available, this game has a particularly high volatility, so you may want to drop your bet sizes down a bit from what they normally are and play longer sessions to compensate.
There are several different bonus features in this game. In the Pink Pow, you'll get extra wild symbols added to the reels. With the Crack the Pink Code bonus, you'll get to choose from a number of safes, and they will give you free spins, multipliers or expanding wilds for a free spins bonus feature. Three other special bonus features give you a chance at progressive jackpots, pick-a-box style games or respin opportunities. These are all in addition to the standard payout table which is pretty impressive in this game. If you're looking for a bonus-packed title, then the Pink Panther by Playtech will exceed your expectations.
As far as the normal payouts go, the Pink Panther symbol is wild. It shows up on all five reels, and it's the key to getting the top normal jackpot. This jackpot is 5,000x, and you get it for lining up five of the wilds on an activated payline. You can also get five of the scattered Pink Panther Logo symbols to get up to 200 times your entire bet which is the best normal payout in the game since it's the same as an 8,000x line bet win. What makes this game so interesting is that even though there are tons of bonus features, they are not triggered by scatters or other symbols. Instead, they are all triggered randomly. This is a very atypical approach.
