Penguin Power Progressive Online Video Slot
With the colourful Southern Lights in the background and the reels and buttons frozen in snow-dusted ice blocks, Realtime Gaming’s Penguin Power video slot makes the most of the increasingly popular penguin slot game theme.
With the exception of its randomly triggered progressive jackpot, Penguin Power is a standard five-reel, 25-payline video slot. All the customary elements – including wild and scatter symbols and bonus feature – are there, in addition to a handy multi-option auto-play feature.
A Polar Penguin Playground
Penguin Power is a polar playground for a host of Antarctic animals and items, including fluffy penguin chicks, yellow-breasted emperor penguins, seals, igloos, and various Pacific Ocean fish species. Added to these symbols are the usual high-value playing cards, colourfully stylised and capped with snow.
The soundtrack to the Penguin Power is a merry instrumental ditty reminiscent of the 1950s pop classic, “Mr Sandman”, with accompanying sound effects for symbols that become animated when they form part of winning combinations.
Wild Baby Penguins and Scattered Igloos
As mentioned, Penguin Power has both a wild and a symbol – in the form of a penguin chick and an igloo, respectively.
- The Penguin Chick Wild
The Penguin Power wild symbol appears only on Reels 2, 3 and 4 and can stand in for any other symbol, except the igloo scatter, to complete winning payline combinations. Any Penguin Power wins acquired with the help of the penguin chick wild also receive a 2x multiplier.
Although the Penguin Power wild does not offer any fixed jackpot, its 2x multiplier can significantly increase wins when it replaces one of the symbols in a five-of-a-kind combination. More about this in a moment.
- The Igloo Scatter
The Penguin Power igloo scatter symbol does not have to land on an active payline in order to yield a win, as long as two or more appear. Igloo scatter payouts are multiplied by the total value of the wager.
In addition, the appearance of three or more Penguin Power scatters on the reels unlocks the game’s Penguin Slide Feature.
The Penguin Slide Feature
The Penguin Power bonus round is called the Penguin Slide Feature and is triggered when three or more scatters appear on the reels. Depending on the number of scatters, Penguin Power players are then awarded 5, 10, 15 or 25 free spins. During these free Penguin Power spins, extra scatters and wilds are added to the reels and, if the penguin chick and igloo appear on the same horizontal line on Reels 1 and/or 5, players are awarded credit prizes and additional free spins.
Unfortunately, the Penguin Power free spins cannot be re-triggered.
Betting Options and Pay Table
Penguin Power coin values start at 0.01 and goes up to 5.00 credits, with a maximum number of credits per spin capped at 100.00.
Bearing in mind that the wins are increased when one symbol is replaced with the baby penguin, the Penguin Power five-of-a-kind payouts are as follows, with the second, higher number indicating wins that include a baby penguin:
- Penguin: 2500 / 5000
- Seal: 1000 / 2000
- Fish and Egg: 500 / 1000
- Ace and King: 250 / 500
- Queen and Jack: 200 / 400
- 10 and 9: 100 / 200
- Igloo scatter: 200
The Penguin Power progressive jackpot can grow quite large as it keeps increasing until someone wins it and is triggered at random.
