Double Panda Slots

Double-PandaCryptologic’s Double Panda gets two cute Panda bears as representatives, and no, you’re not seeing double. One is on the right side, the other on the left side of the reels. The rest of the game gives you a Chinese vibe, the design being about animals that you can find in their own forests and jungles. The Panda Bear is obviously the best known representative of their wildlife, so he’s the one the slot focuses on. With Bamboo forests in the background and various fish and animals on the reels, this is a peaceful and nature inspired slot that can be relaxing to play.

25 bet lines are provided on the game’s 5 reels, a number that Cryptologic often chooses for its modern titles. The $200,000 jackpot may be the slot’s most attractive feature, but alongside it you will also find from time to time special symbols (wilds and scatters) and the things they have to offer you, meaning multipliers and free spins.

Features of Double Panda

Even though nature might be the inspiration for this slot machine, that doesn’t mean that they’ve kept things simple. The feature list has the two main special symbols, scatter and wild, plus the things they usually trigger for players (free spins and multipliers).

Panda, a cute type of bear that lives mostly in China, is responsible for the slot’s big prize being awarded. When the wild doesn’t create combinations of its own, awarding the biggest prizes, it tries to assist others by substituting for them. You have to get the Panda wild in a position where another symbol would be needed to form a combination (existing matching symbols need to be already in place), so that he can take that role. He is not going to substitute for the scatter, as expected, but it will do so in every other case.

The Bamboo forest is the scatter symbol, and it has a few things going on at the same time. First of all, you’re guaranteed to get prizes from it, as long as a few of them are present at the same time. Even two scatters will be enough to get you back the value of the bet you’ve made, but get five and that prize goes to 100x the bet.

Free Games Feature

With 3+ Bamboo scattered around, you get both the prize mentioned on the paytable and access to a round of free spins. The Bamboo symbols that contributed will show a number each one, which when added together gives you the free spins. That’s not all you get though, with the multiplier attached tripling the prizes available during these spins.

If you get lucky and you manage to retrigger the free spins again, the number of rounds will be the same as the first time you triggered them.


Betting options and jackpots

It’s a relatively expensive game to play, but only if you decide you want to use the $500 maximum bet. You’re not obligated to do so, but if you want the biggest prize available it would be a good idea. The bets are composed of up to 25 coins, with their value going from $0.01 to $20.

In exchange, you can expect winning combinations with up to 10,000 coins in prizes, which can get the jackpot value to $200,000.

Design and symbols

The reels are built on scaffolding made out of bamboo, China’s most well known type of wood. They are also placed in the middle of a bamboo forest, and you can see the two Panda bears mentioned in the title on both sides, peeking out from their cover. The reels are all white, with either playing cards or animals on them. The surrounding graphics bring something new, so it’s not the usual Chinese themed slot.

Symbols: Panda Bear (wild, 10,000x), Bamboo (scatter, 100x triggering wager), White Tiger (1,500x), Raccoon (500x), Koi Fish (300x), Lotus Flower (300x), Ace (200x), King (200x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Double Panda’s huge top prize, its features and the things they can do for you, they all recommend this slot as a slot machine you should try out. It’s not the only one from Cryptologic with these characteristics though, so if the theme does nothing for you, perhaps one of the others will do.

This Double Panda slot is offered by all online casinos with Cryptologic software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
