Panda's Fortune 2 slot by Pragmatic Play at first glance has the appearance of being a bright and interesting game to play. Taking the oriental theme naturally, it's been a while since we've seen these bamboo-eating bears on a new slot. Microgaming gave us the odd but popular Untamed Giant Panda slot and we cannot forget the old classics such as IGT's 100 Pandas slot and of course iSoftBet's humorous take on the subject with their Dalai Panda slot. There's no fuss here either with plain reels and background alongside oriental music and cymbal sound effects one would expect. So can the panda here provide some ying and yang for our bankroll or will it be a fleeting glance at fortune?
On the reels...
You will play 25 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows on
Panda's Fortune 2 slot. Symbols are single bar the stacked Panda Wilds which appear on all reels except the first. The 5-of-a-kind pays are 100x bet for the Ying Yang scatter, 8x Butterfly, Lion 6x, 4x Frog, Fish or Tree with six card values all paying 2x for a full line. there's no random modifiers here but we do get an interesting Gold Symbols mechanic.
In both the base game and bonus any symbols bar the scatter can appear with a gold surround. You need one of these to part of a winning line in order to get a prize. Starting with the lowest, should any Gold Wilds appear in a winning 3 or 4OAK you get 3x stake for each Wild. Any 3 or 4OAK consisting of a high-value symbol of which one or more is gold pays 2x bet and finally 1x if the same thing but consisting of card values.
5-of-a-kind gold prizes - if you get a 5OAK of any symbol of which at least one is gold, you will get a random prize of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 250, 500, 1000, 2500 or maximum 4998x stake! The highest 3 are classed as the fixed Minor, Major and Grand jackpots.
You need 3 or more Ying Yang scatters for 12 free games. During these, any gold symbols landing will leave their position gold for the remainder of the round, making it easier to get gold prizes. You get 8 extra spins for 3 or more scatters during them. The game is volatile and has a maximum capped pay of 5,000x bet.
Panda's Fortune 2 slot has a 96.51% RTP and as usual Pragmatic have made the game easy and pleasant to play with smooth colourful graphics and sounds. You don't see many decent wins in the base game unless lining up 2 or more reels of stacked Panda Wilds but the bonus isn't too rare either. When it does come in, it's often frustrating due to the volatility as you often get numerous gold positions but no winning combinations filling them. You really need to see the retrigger at least once to vastly increase your chances of those rare big totals. An annoying thing here is that on auto-play any win with a gold symbol stops the auto so you need to reset it. For that reason alone I will likely seek my fortune away from these pandas...
