Who doesn’t like an animal themed game? Keeping that in mind IGT has come up with an all new online slot game, specifically dedicated to this majestic feline and its natural habitat. Following IGT’s trademark, the game has a slightly off-beat yet familiar reel layout. A five reel slot with about thousands or 720 to be exact ways to win, Prowling Panther has no model paylines and the backdrop is majorly focuses on its lead, a Panther’s natural habitat. This unique game offers an adventurous jungle-themed experience to its players with a unique 5 reel layout, something they don’t get to experience on a standard slot machine. Although, the game kind of lacks the lustre of regular and wild scattered symbols, it does offer surprises from time to time.
1. Wild Multiplier
Although a bit awkward, the wild multiplier feature offers serious profits. In the beginning the symbol appears as a 2x which implies these symbols substitute for 2 of the any symbol that is required to complete a winning combination. These wilds tend to appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 and appear on the reels stacked together. Towards the end, the pay-out is multiplied with the number of reels stacked.
2. Free Spins
This feature is triggered by the magnificent golden, growling panther sign. This feature set off after one lands 5 of these golden symbols on each of the 5 reels. After the win, you are immediately awarded with 8 free spins which can be retriggered if you land another 5 of the golden panthers on all the five reels. Players have a chance to win up 96 free sins in the beginning.
3. The Prowling Panther Pay symbols
The symbol in the game are standard card symbols, along with a Parrot and a purple hued black panther. These are an A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols. The final pay out requires about 3 matching symbols. However, they don’t have to be lined up on an activated help line. They can be placed anyway, either adjacent, stacked or on left to right on reel.
Although, the game is fairly enjoyable we do feel that there are better animal-themed games witnessed before. The free spin feature undoubtedly offers big wins, but other than that it is a comparatively regular run-of-the-mill slot which might not interest avid players for long. Holding the attention of such gamers might require IGT to up their game a bit.
