Dalai Panda Slot Machine
The latest release by iSoftBet comes with a pleasant surprise. Dalai Panda is the newest addition to the iSoftBet’s huge slots selection, and it features a very unusual reel configuration. The reels are distinctive because right between them sits (floating) a giant panda. If you’re interested to know how that looks and what it can bring to you, sit tight and be prepared for action.
The unusual reel configuration, first of all, gives you two distinct game areas, each consisting of 3x3 reels, which can even turn into a 6x3 game in the Free Spins mode. This gives you plenty of winning ways, meaning plenty of opportunities to win big.
The Wild in the game is a symbol with Green Plants, replacing all symbols and providing them with extra functions in the Free Spins mode. They can become expanding or add a 2x multiplier.
The Yin Yang symbol is the Scatter and signalizes the Free Spins. If you manage to land 4 to 6 scatters in different positions in just one single spin, the Yin Yang symbol will pay 1,000x.
In the middle of the two sets of reels, you will see a big pot of gold, just underneath the panda. You collect your winning combos there, which rewards you with 5 spins in the beginning and with each win that was formed on both sets of reels, you get 1 additional spin. If you manage this, the Dalai Panda will put the two sets of reels together and you will get the 6x3 grid and 729 ways to win!
At this point, if you land three or more bonus symbols, the 6 reels and 729 winning ways will stay for all rounds, and 2x multipliers and expanding wilds will be added as well.
Theme & Design
You won't stay indifferent when you get a sense of the design and the special effects used in this game. First of all, the graphics are cartoony but not as juvenile as you would normally see in other panda-related slots. Since is an Asian-themed slot, you will hear an Oriental soundtrack in the background, which is gentle and smooth as the reels spin and stop, but gets dramatic and super-loud with every win! This certainly adds to the gaming experience and makes it more entertaining than ever. The symbols are presented in high-end quality, and you will see the super cute panda, and some Oriental-style drawings of birds, turtles, fish, and monkeys.
Wagering & Paylines
The coin value is $0.01 and you need 30 coins in order to place a bet, so the minimum bet is $0.30 and the maximum is $30.00. The highest winning combo brings you 1,000 coins but there are a lot of other winning ways made possible with the impressive features. In fact, with all the multipliers and joining reels you get the potential of 20,000x the bet. The slot has a rather decent RTP of 96.05%, so you can rest assured that you’ll take the bigger share of the payout.
As soon as you meet the cute Dalai Panda and its pot of gold, you will know that you haven’t made the wrong choice when you decided to play this game. The visuals are astonishing, there’s plenty of action, the unique features keep on surprising you and making things each time more interesting and you can get up to 729 winning ways, which is… whoa!
