Penguins is one of these brand new slots, exclusive to Paddy Power Games, which offers 243 different ways to win. The slots reels are positioned on an iceberg in Antarctica. The game has a very impressive aesthetic, with use of high definition and animated graphics throughout. The cold waters are shimmering in the background and standing on top of the iceberg, you will see five penguins watching over the game, which are blinking and waving at you.
The game is relatively simple in the sense that the only things involved are the penguins, ice and water, which is particularly fitting as this is all you will find in the Antarctic. On the reels, apart from the standard 10 through to A icons, you will see various different penguins: one wearing a medal round its neck, one wearing a crown, one wearing a hat and goggles, one wearing a scarf and one wearing a necklace.
The game is crammed full with exciting and original bonus features, which draws it apart from the many other slots out there. There are five different free spins bonuses you can get.
- Spinning Wilds – free spins continue as long as the wild symbol is show
- Big Viral Wilds – reel expand to allow 1024 ways of winning
- Sticky Wilds – wilds stick about longer
- Ice Explosion – wins breed wins as winning symbols are replaced by more free symbols
- Spin Multiplier – Each win is multiplied by the spin multiplier
Once you have received each of the wins on the pay table, you will be rewarded with all five free spin bonuses back to back.
The game also features the standard ‘wild’ symbol, which is represented by a cube of ice. This symbol can be substituted with anything except for the scatter symbol. At random times, the stacked wild bonus will feature, which will drop on one of the reels when you’re least expecting it.
The bonus features on this game alone make it worth a try. With this, as well as the high quality graphics and animation, this is one of the best games of 2013.
