The game has a high volatility, which is reflected in the available bets. They are reasonably high, but not so much to breach the 2000x maximum win cap.
You can bet between $0.50 and $12.50 on each spin. Unlike other titles by this developer, we cannot turn individual paylines on or off. This release is played on a 5×4 board with an all ways pay system instead of paylines.
As such, winning combinations are formed by identical symbols on adjacent reels, going from left to right. Wins no longer have to follow strict paths, which makes forming wins easier.
There is no information regarding Panda Magic’s theoretical return to player (RTP). RTG leaves it to online casinos to set it for themselves. You will need to check that information with your chosen casino before you play.
Players have twelve icon designs to play around with on the reels. The slot logo is the Wild, while a poster advertising our mage is the Scatter.
Wilds are also the most valuable symbol, paying 1000x for a five-of-a-kind win. We can double that top prize during free spins. Rather than opt for one giant win, this game leans towards trying to hit medium-sized jackpots semi-frequently. The potion and mushroom are the lowest paying icons. These symbols pay between 3x to 75x.
Wilds can appear in any position and can substitute for all icons, including Scatters. When the Wild lands on the board, it has a chance of expanding to cover the entire reel. When substituting for a Scatter, Wilds only count once per reel.
PANDA MAGIC FEATURE
Three or more Scatters grant 20, 25 or 30 free spins. How many free spins you get is determined randomly when you click one of the triggering Scatters. For the duration of this bonus, all cash prizes are doubled. You can win even more free spins during the bonus, extending the special feature even further.
MORE MAGIC BONUS
This special feature can activate on the board before every free spin. In fact, free spins have to be active for this special feature to trigger! Our panda magician will add one, two or three extra Wilds to the board. Any existing Wilds will also be expanded. The special feature gives you a greater chance of winning during the upcoming free spin.
Just the concept of a panda doing magic was silly enough to make us try this release out. We are glad we did! RTG has done a fantastic job animating every moment of Panda Magic he casts with his staff.
However, visuals are not the only appeal of this slot. Players can also look forward to a variety of bonuses that keep things interesting. Admittedly, we would have liked to see a higher jackpot. Although, the current 2000x top prize is certainly nothing to sneeze at either!
