RTG’s newest video slot dropped yesterday, August 17th 2016. This new slot game is an “All Ways Pays” slot and is called Panda Magic. Now who doesn’t love a panda? Pandas have always been considered to be noble and almost magical creatures throughout history and now RTG’s new slot game features an actual magical panda.
Panda Magic is five reel video slot with four rows in which winning combinations are formed by symbols on adjacent reels from left to right except scattered Magic Tickets. This brightly colored video slot features a wonderful array of symbols, all of them very pleasing to the eye.
The symbols are as follows: a red panda with a glowing green orb, a purple owl reading a book on Panda Magic, a blue sorcerer’s hat covered in crescent moons and stars, a traditional pagoda, an open book of spells, a purple crystal ball, a mysterious locket with a green emerald in the center, flickering red candles, vials of magical potions and a wand wielding magical mushroom. The standard 9 through A symbols do not appear in this game, which, honestly, is fine by me because they’re not very exciting are they?
The wild in this new game is the Panda Magic symbol. Panda Magic is wild and counts for all symbols including scatters. There is a chance that the Panda Magic symbol will expand to cover all the positions on its reel when it appears.
PANDA MAGIC FEATURE
The scatter symbol is the Magic Ticket. Three or more scatters triggers 20, 25 or 30 free games. Touch a triggering scatter to reveal the number of games that you have won. All wins are doubled during free games and the More Magic feature may trigger randomly. Extra free games maybe be triggered during the Panda Magic feature.
MORE MAGIC FEATURE
The panda may initiate the More Magic feature before any free game. He may add one or three extra wilds to each reel to make extra wilds appear, expand or both. When I was playing the Panda Magic feature I witnessed the panda pounding his staff against the ground and awarding Extra Wilds, Mega Wilds, Expanding Wilds and even Extra Wilds with Expanding Wilds at the beginning of some of the free spins. While this was all fun and exciting to watch, I’ll be honest, it’s kind of a tough game. The wins weren’t often, but when they came, they did seem larger than average.
