A Look at Prowling Panther Online Slot
Prowling Panther is a video slot with a jungle animal theme. Developed by IGT, the online slot has five reels and 720 ways to win. The two main bonus features are a multiplier Wild that can stack on the reels, and a bonus symbol that could award more than 200 free spins.
The game has an exceeding wide betting range, which makes it accessible to low and high rollers, and its 720 ways to win and MultiWay Xtra feature mean that the need for traditional paylines is done away with.
Prowling Panther’s five reels feature different numbers of rows. The first and fifth reels have three rows, the second and fourth reels have four rows, and the third, central reel has five rows. Bordered with various colours, the reels are set in a dense, humid jungle, with dark green plants at the bottom, and taller trees stretching up toward a pale green canopy.
Prowling Panther Operation
The only adjustment that can be made to Prowling Panther’s bets is the value of the coin. The controls used to adjust the value are found second from the left, under the reels.
Depending on player preferences, the reels can be spun for a minimum of 0.50, for a maximum of 1500.00, or for a range of values in between. The button to spin the reels is an orange disc with a curved arrow pointing in a clockwise direction.
The button used to make the online slot play itself is light green, and labelled Auto Spin. It is on the far right, under the reels.
Prowling Panther Reel Symbols
There are themed and standard symbols in Prowling Panther. The themed symbols include a black panther, a toucan, a parrot, a gold panther, and a purple 2X set in a jungle scene.
Playing card 10, J, Q, K, and A in bright, bold colours are the standard symbols, which pay out lower than the themed symbols.
The gold panther is the bonus symbol, and its function is to activate the slot’s free spins round. The 2X symbol is the multiplier Wild symbol.
Hundreds of Free Spins
The Prowling Panther free spins round is activated whenever three or more gold panther bonus symbols land in any position on the reels. The initial number of free spins played depends on how many bonus symbols appeared on the reels.
The initial game could see anything between eight and 96 free spins awarded. However, as it’s possible to re-activate free spins from within the feature, the number of free spins could be as high as 256.
Prowling Panther Wild Symbol
Prowling Panther’s 2X Wild symbol is featured in the base game and in the free spins. However, it appears on the second, third, and fourth reels only.
The Wild can substitute for reel symbols in winning online casino New Zealand combinations. It can also stack on the reels, which means it could help produce a few winning combinations on one spin, and it can double payouts.
The only symbol the Wild will not substitute for is the gold panther bonus symbol.
