Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the iGaming industry, modifies wilds with numerous game-altering features in its latest slot release, Fat Panda.
An Asian-inspired aesthetic is present across the title’s 5×3 reels, which are home to numerous symbols in keeping with the overall theme of the slot, including fans, lamps and golden coins. If these symbols match across Fat Panda’s 20 paylines, a win is awarded.
Aiding players in unlocking these wins are wilds, which substitute for any base game symbols and allow additional opportunities to form wins. Above the game board, a modifier reel can transform gameplay by either adding more wilds to the game board, expanding wilds into a wild reel, adding a multiplier or adding multipliers across all wilds present. These result in improved winning potential for players, which is further expanded upon in the bonus.
At least three scatters are required to unlock the free spins round. Here, any wilds landed are held throughout all subsequent spins with retriggers also being added to the modifier reel, increasing the number of spins awarded and in turn expanding the chance of unlocking more sticky wilds.
Fat Panda utilises a modifier system to build upon the excitement offered in both the base game and bonus round, exemplifying the provider’s focus on mechanical variety. This is also encapsulated in other recent hit titles such as Country Farming, Floating Dragon – Dragon Boat Festival and Pirates Pub.
