The Wombat says: Meet Pandamania slot from NextGen Gaming- the people behind the Shangri-La slot. Join a mischievous Panda in a zoo, where the animals are running riot on golf carts and the zoo keeper has been kidnapped and is most likely bunking in with the tigers.
Yes, there’s an escaped panda on the loose and he’s playing merry hell at the Zoo – which is good news for you Wombat Fans as the mad monochrome bear will give you extra Wilds on his walkabout. Let’s give this zany zoo-themed slot a go!
Look and Feel
Not the most sophisticated graphics we’ve seen (it’s on the same kind of level as the What a Hoot slot game), but there’s some fun animations here that make up the design in the game. The reels themselves are set in a zoo, where you’ll find live cascading waterfalls, floating clouds, empty cages and the ubiquitous ‘Do not feed the animals’ sign.
Pandamania Slot Game Play
Pandamania is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows, and 25 paylines. Your symbols on the reels are made up of some very brightly coloured symbols including a pedal-powered golf cart, some entrance tickets for the zoo, a big bag of sweets and a collapsed ice cream, plus the tied-up zookeeper and the usual playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K & A.
Mr Panda himself is the wild symbol in Pandmania slot and he looks like he’s been getting stuck in to the goodies on the Wasabi San slot. Aside from his usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to help get you winning combos, he will also perform the Escaped Panda bonus. Whats that then? Well Wombat Fans, at random times the cheeky little chap will cycle across the screen in his getaway golf cart and add Wilds to the reels by bursting balloons – and hopefully creating wins in the process!
Pick Me Bonus
Set off this nice little extra by landing 3x or more of the Padlock symbols that on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Once you’ve set off the bonus, you’ll be asked to choose one of the symbols behind which you’ll reveal either a cash prize that’s waiting for you, the chance to pick again, or a sign saying you’ve scooped all 3 prizes! Excellent!
Scatter and Free Spins
This bonus is triggered by landing 3x or more of the Pandamania logo Scatter symbol anywhere on your reels. Manage this and it’s 10 Free Spins for you, whoop! Plus any wins you scoop during the bonus will be doubled thanks to a 2x multiplier. You can also re-trigger feature by landing another 3x Scatters.
Fancy another flutter? If you want an extra gamble, you can click on the Hearts and Clubs button on your screen beneath the reels. After a winning spin you’ll be given the chance to double or quadruple your win by correctly guessing the colour or suit of the next card drawn from the pack. But if you fail, you’ll lose the lot, so it’s not for the faint-hearted!
This slot is worth playing if you’re looking to spin on a low budget and to pick up small but frequent wins, as the bonuses are triggered off frequently. Nothing spectacular but a nice little game.
Wombat score: 3/5
This game isn’t available to UK players. Sorry about that chaps! Why not try Panda’s Run slot from Tom Horn Gaming instead?
