Slots Review – Penguin Power

Software Platform : Real Time Gaming

Introduction

Penguin Power is another animal themed online slot game from Real Time Gaming. Animal based slots are usually pretty popular and Penguin Power is great fun to play. The graphics are good and very much in keeping with the theme; right down to the play buttons appearing as blocks of ice. The important symbols are animated if they appear as part of a winning combination.

The symbols that feature in this slot game are based around the penguin and his habitat. There is an adult penguin symbol and a baby penguin symbol and also a seal, a fish, an egg and an igloo. As with many online slots, there are also playing card values from the ace down to the nine.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

Penguin Power has five reels and you can activate up to 20 pay lines on each spin. By adjusting the coin value you can also choose how much you want to wager per spin. Penguin Power should suit the budget of any online slot player.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol at the Penguin Power online slot is a baby penguin. This symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 to substitute for other symbols and form winning combinations. Any winning combination that uses the wild symbol has the relevant pay out doubled. The wild symbol does not substitute for the scatter symbol.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

An igloo is the scatter symbol at Penguin Power and awards instant prizes when it appears twice or more in view. Two scatter symbols pays back your total back, three triples your total bet and four awards ten times your total bet. If you see five scatter symbols on one spin then you get 200 times your total bet back.

The Penguin Power feature is also triggered by the scatter symbol. Three or more in view awards 5, 10, 15 or 25 free games. During the free games, extra scatters and wild symbols are added to the reels. If a scatter and a wild symbol appear on the same horizontal level on reels one and five then the Penguin Slide bonus is activated. This awards prizes of up to 100 times your total bet or additional free spins.

Jackpots

Penguin Power features a randomly activated progressive jackpot. It can be awarded on any spin, regardless of the size of the bet or the symbols that appear. The fixed jackpot is 2500 coins for five adult penguin symbols in a row. If the wild symbol is used then the jackpot doubles to 5000 coins.
