100 Pandas is a five-reel, 100 payline video slot inspired by the popular panda theme, complete with a distinctly oriental soundtrack and set against the backdrop of the animal’s natural habitat, a leafy green bamboo forest.
The slot – which includes characteristically Far-Eastern elements like lotus flowers, bamboo shoots, a yin-yang, high playing card symbols, and, of course, an assortment of racoon-eyed panda bears – has a betting range of between 1.00 and 30.00 credits – between one and 30 coins – per active payline. Paylines are adjustable and players may wager up to 3000.00 credits per spin.
Notable 100 Pandas elements include standard wilds, up to 255 free bonus spins, and a fairly lucrative stacked wild feature. The first- and second-highest possible jackpots in 100 Pandas are 1000 and 6000 coins respectively.
Three Pandas are Wild
As is standard with online video slots, the 100 Pandas wild symbol is quite valuable as it can stand in for any other symbol, except the scatter, to complete winning combinations – as long as it appears on an active payline. The 100 Pandas wild symbol takes the form of three pandas against the backdrop of a full moon.
Five wilds in a single active payline are the most valuable possible combination that a player can land in 100 Pandas.
The 100 Pandas Stacked Wild Feature
In addition to the standard wild symbol, 100 Pandas also has a stacked wild feature that further increases players’ chances of landing winning combinations. Stacked wilds look the same as standard wilds but they appear in clusters of several wilds stacked up on a single reel. Stacked wilds come up relatively often in 100 Pandas and several stacks may even come up on a single spin.
Re-Triggerable Free Spins with Yin-Yan Scatter
The other highly valuable symbol in 100 Pandas is the yin-yang, which serves and the 100 Pandas scatter and has the power to award free spins. This happens when three or more 100 Pandas yin-yang symbols appear anywhere on the three centre reels. The game then moves onto another set of reels with a deep blue background. During the free spins bonus round 100 rewards the player with 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier on any wins incurred during these free spins.
What’s more, during the free spins bonus round, the 100 Pandas scatter appears more frequently and, if three or more appear on the centre reels again, a further free spins are three triggered. Up to 255 free spins can be triggered in a row in any single 100 Pandas free spins bonus round.
The Follow-Up to Wolf Run
To get a broad idea of what they can expect from the 100 Pandas online video slot, players should think back to IGT’s highly popular older five-reel 50-line slot, Wild Wolf.
Also, players familiar with traditional slot machines in land-based casinos may recognise the 100 Pandas title from their trips to virtual casinos’ brick-and-mortar counterparts, as 100 Pandas online slot is simply the internet incarnation of the original offline game. And like sports betting, you can play this slot on various devices.
