Penguins in Paradise Slots

Penguins-in-Paradise“Penguins in Paradise” follows the adventures of a group of penguins as they arrive on a tropical island, and then proceed to have fun. They drink cocktails, they surf, dance and sit in the sun, all activities that they couldn’t pursue in their homeland. The tropical theme is common enough, but mixing it with penguins that live in the colder regions of our planet is not. Thanks to the good graphics and the attractive theme choice and tropical inspiration, Penguins in Paradise looks like a game that should be a lot of fun. It doesn’t disappoint, as you will discover yourself if you give it a few spins at least.

With a theme choice that is slightly unusual, Penguins in Paradise is pretty average in every other way, starting with the number of reels (5) and paylines (25). Inside, Cryptologic has placed an impressive top prize worth $200,000, plus a complete list of features, from wilds and scatters, to multipliers and free spins.

Features of Penguins in Paradise

Besides being an attractive looking game, Penguins in Paradise is also rich in features of all kinds, though they’re all the kind you already expect to see, so they didn’t innovate much. Among them, you will discover the scattered symbols that give you free games and multipliers, or the ever popular wilds acting as triggers for a bonus game.

Mr Penguin, the father and husband to the other two penguins that appear in the game, will be the one you want to see as often as possible, as it is the one to take the role of the wild. You can get it only on three reels (2nd, 3rd and 4th), plus you don’t get any kind of rewards directly from it. On the other hand, you can get a bonus feature started, as you will learn below.

As usual, you get a second feature symbol as well, a scatter that is represented by the picture of a Drink. The Drink can appear in scattered positions on the screen, and thanks to its abilities it will not matter that the symbols are not on the same payline. It will still give away its prizes and you can expect access to a round of free games as well. While regular payouts need 2+ scatters, the free games require at least three. Offered as a multiple of the triggering bet, the scatter’s prize goes up to 100x.

Free Games Feature

Three or more scattered Drinks will be enough to trigger a round of 10 free spins in this game, with some very attractive 3x multipliers always available. You can get this feature retriggered, as long as another 3+ scatters appear during the free spins.


Penguins Surfing

A bonus game that gets started with the wild symbol’s help, Penguins Surfing is only going to start if you get the wild Mr Penguin on all three reels where it is allowed to appear (2, 3 and 4).

You are allowed to choose two tricks that Mr Penguin should perform, out of the three available. Each performance gets a score from the judges. Those scores are actually multipliers to be used on the total bet value. If the trick is not performed because Mr. Penguin is wiped out, you get a consolation prize instead (2x the bet).

Betting options and jackpots

The full betting range in Penguins in Paradise goes from $0.01 to $500. The lowest number is the equivalent of a coin at its lowest denomination, enough to trigger a single payline. The largest value is composed of all 25 coins that can be used, with their highest denomination at $20 each.

It’s one of the better paying slots from this developer, offering up to 10,000 coins in exchange for the ones you use in your wager. It’s a 10,000x line bet multiple that can mean up to $200,000 cash.

Design and symbols

It’s got an appealing theme, with cute graphics that get a lot of inspiration from Hawaii. The reels and betting options are placed on a wooden board, with flowers and bamboo surrounding them. You get flowers in pretty much all the symbols that are offered, including on the playing cards. The tropical theme looks great in this case, especially since you also have the penguins, which are unexpected in such a setting.

Symbols: Mr Penguin (wild), Drink (scatter, 100x the triggering bet), Mrs. Penguin (5,000x), Baby Penguin (1,000x), Tribal mask (500x), Palm Trees (500x), Ace (200x), King (200x), Queen (125x), Jack (125x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

You get a lot of things from playing this slot, starting with the cool graphics and theme choice, the $200,000 top jackpot and the features, which are above average even for this developer.

Penguins in Paradise can be found at any Cryptologic casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
