Panda King is a slot about cute black and white pandas that live in the eastern part of Asia, with a background of bamboo forest and a lot of references to Chinese culture. The design of the slot is more reminiscent of the Chinese fast-food menu somewhere in London than the traditional culture of China. Also, at first glance, the lack of taste in the design is evident. Nevertheless, it must be admitted that the pandas are still cute, and the blooming lotus, Buddhist temples, and decorative waterfalls are well-drawn, therefore, in general, such an implementation of the theme in the Ainsworth slot works.
Panda King Slot Graphics, sounds, and animations
The graphics are clear, the characters are clear and executed in high resolution. The animation of the characters is smooth, while the sound effects are well-matched, although there is no music. This will seem to someone an advantage, given that for many slots it is just awful. Nevertheless, a good soundtrack would allow players to better immerse themselves in the game.
Panda King Slot Gameplay
The gameplay is rather boring, while there is no function of gambling and mini-games. The only bonus available is free spins. The main game takes place on five reels with 20 paylines. It is impossible to change the number of lines. This, in fact, is all that the creators expect to attract players.
Panda King Slot Wilds, bonuses and free spins
There are three special characters in the slot. The symbol with the image of the panda acts as a wild (in this slot it is called "Substitute"), replacing all the symbols except Scatter. The second special character is the Scatter character. The loss of three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels launches a bonus round with free spins. Scatter "Yin-Yang" brings free spins. You will have a choice of eight, ten or twelve free spins, on which the number of characters turning into wilds will depend. The more free spins, the less symbols with a panda will be on the reels. For example, if you select eight free spins, then during these free spins all symbols with waterfalls, motets, gazebos and lotus will become wilds. If you choose twelve free spins, then only the first three dropped characters will turn into wilds.
Panda King Slot - Bets, RTP and Variance
The RTP of the slot is 94.34%, which is unacceptable for us since we try not to recommend slots with a payout percentage below 96%. On the site where we tested Panda King, the minimum bet was € / £ / $ 0.20 per spin, and the maximum was € / £ / $ 100.00 per spin. The slot has medium volatility, which is not suitable for the strategies we recommend, which are designed for slots with higher volatility.
Even with a higher RTP value, we would not recommend the players a Panda King slot. It does not have high enough volatility and weak design elements, visual design and gameplay.
