100 Pandas Slot by IGT Review
The 100 Pandas online slot was created by IGT. It has five reels of four boxes each. Images create combinations along 100 paylines. The maximum win for a usual combination is 1,000 times your line bet.
The Wild symbol appears on all reels and completes winning combinations by replacing regular images. Scatter symbols produce you winnings in credits and start a series of free spins.
When you start the 100 Pandas slot machine, you receive 3,000 credits. The actual number in your account is displayed in the Balance section. The Total Bet section shows the total bet that will be deducted at the start of a spin.
The amount of the bet per spin depends on two factors. One of them is the number of active paylines. This parameter is adjusted in the Lines window. With the help of the "+" and "-" buttons, the values 1, 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 are set here. The second parameter that influences the total wager is the line bet. It is indicated in the Line Bet section. The following values are available here — 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20 and 30. The two described parameters are multiplied, resulting in the total bet.
Click Spin to set the reels in motion. You can see your win for the previous spin in the Win screen. Rewards are given for combinations of any symbol. Combos of standard icons or Wild symbols must:
- Start on the leftmost reel
- Be along an active payline
- Consist of the same pictures
- Consecutively land from left to right
Only if all these conditions are met, you receive a win for a combination. The reward is determined depending on the factor of the corresponding winning combination that is multiplied by the line bet.
There are two additional settings in the 100 Pandas — regulation of sound and graphics quality. The first option is turned on and off by hitting the speaker on the bottom left. The button with a wrench opens a window where you can change the quality of the graphics: Low, Medium, High or Best.
Detailed rules of the game process of the slot are opened by the Game Rules button.
Symbols and factors in 100 Pandas
The Paytable button opens a section that describes all the symbols, the factors for their combinations and paylines.
The usual pictures include six card symbols and four themed icons. Its factors:
- Ten and Nine — 5, 25 and 100
- Queen and Jack — 5, 50 and 125
- King and Ace — 10, 100 and 200
- Bamboo — 25, 150 and 350
- Lotus — 25, 150 and 375
- Pandas — 50, 200 and 600
Special pictures include the Wild symbol and Scatter. The first depicts a family of pandas with the moon in the background. This picture can act as a regular symbol that allows you to get more winning combinations. In addition, Wild creates its own combos. These winning patterns produce 100, 225 and 1,000 times your line bet for 3, 4 and 5 pictures.
Wild symbols have one more feature — they drop on the reels in clusters. This means that you can cover the entire reel with Wild symbols. This feature significantly increases the odds of landing winning combinations.
Scatter is designed as the symbol of Yin and Yang. It appears only on the second, third and fourth reels. When three Scatter symbols occur, ten free spins start and you receive a double payout.
Three or more icons of Yin and Yang start ten free spins. During them, usual symbols alter their appearance a little. Card symbols change their background and the bamboo and lotus turn the other way. Two pandas also change background — from green to red and from purple to yellow. The factors remain unchanged.
If during the free spins three Scatter symbols appear on the game screen again, you receive 10 more free spins. The free spins series can be extended to a maximum of 255.
