Whats not so hot?
A formula that makes Realtime Gaming’s Panda Magic special is its blend of free spins, expanding wilds and its All Ways Pays design. I might add the fury little critter is quite cute to boot and waiting to hand you some spectacular cash prizes! Another feature that makes the slots pop is its unique always pays 1024 winning combinations payline. The game’s magic can be experienced on desktop, instant play or on mobile phones. The top paying non-progressive jackpot pays out a whopping 2,000 times your stake.
The design of the slot is sleek and quite imaginative, suffice it to say I think it’s going to keep you entertained and those big wins are going to keep you on the edge of your seat too. The background of the reels is quite serene with mountains covered in darkness and lit only by the light of the moon and the twinkling stars. On the left-hand side of your screen the magic panda stands majestic and eager to reward you top dollars on every spin you make. Symbols that appear on the reels are the Panda Magic, the magic ticket, the potion, hat, book and the crystal ball.
Panda Magic has a return to player (RTP) of 96% or an edge to the house of 4%. Technically speaking the slots pays 4 cents on every spin made but in the real world this is not the way how things work. It’s a low to medium variance game that pays out on every 3 to 5 spins which is enough to keep you playing until the early hours of the morning.
There is no need to choose lines because of the ‘All Ways Pays’ payline-you can just click in and play. If you click or touch ‘Bet’ there are arrows placed on either side. Click them to decrease or increase your wager. With ‘Autoplay’ you can play a pre-determined number of spins (5 to 1,000), stop when the jackpot is won and so forth. If you want to stop the reels from spinning at any point simply click the ‘Stop Auto’ button.
The scatter symbol is the magic ticket, when 3 or more of them appear on the reels the ‘Panda Magic Free Spins‘ feature is activated. All wins can be doubled and you can win up to a respectable 30 free spins! The Panda triggers the More Magic feature before the conclusion of any of the free spins. In this feature, the Panda can turn any wilds into expanding wilds or place additional wilds on the reels or both!
The wild symbol is the Panda Magic icon, besides the scatter it replaces every symbol to complete a winning payline. It’s also an expanding wild which means it will expand to cover the reels offering additional wins.
It’s pretty evident that Realtime Gaming had the player in mind when it rolled out Panda Magic-kudos to the vendor for listening to its player base time round. The game’s numerous All Ways Pays payline pays guarantees regular payouts during the base game which gives you enough cash in pocket to hopefully trigger the free spins mode. Panda Magic video slots is a well-balanced game with a solid free spins bonus structure, expanding wilds and it’s impeccably designed.
