The panda is one of several species of bears. Its unique black and white color and docile nature have endeared it to all. The panda’s native habitat is the bamboo forest of China. Unfortunately the panda is today on the list of endangered species. All these characteristics make the panda a fit subject for online slots and all the leading software providers have risen to the occasion.

The oldest Panda themed online slot was released by Cryptologic and is titled Double Panda. It is a simple 25 paylines slot game. The reels are set in the background of a dense bamboo forest with two panda peeping out. The panda is the wild symbol. It also offers the highest jackpot of 10,000 coins. The bamboo is the scatter symbol. Two or more appearing anywhere on the reels offer scatter payouts. The animations on these symbols are not as spectacular as in the contemporary slot games. The panda gives a characteristic shake of its head and the bamboo shoots part to reveal a breathtaking landscape. The other symbols include some typically Chinese fauna and flora such as the snow leopard and the fox, which is venerated in the ancient culture. The high value card symbols are crafted in Chinese style. The bamboo symbol also triggers the free spins feature. The number of free spins is revealed by the bamboo symbols and the payouts are tripled.

Lucky Panda is the slot game from the software provider Playtech. One of its attractions is that it is an All Ways slot game. There are four rows of symbols across the reels and no defined paylines. A unique innovation in the All Ways feature has been introduced by Playtech in Lucky Panda. Players can select the number of reels they want to activate. With all five reels activated players have 1,024 ways to win. The symbols reflect the Chine origin of the panda. The high paying symbols include the Chinese fauna. The Lucky Panda logo is the wild symbol, but it appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. The panda is the scatter symbol. It offers the scatter payouts and also triggers the free spins. 15 free spins are awarded to the player with all payouts doubled. For the free spins to be players need at least three panda symbols anywhere on the reels. If there are two, and only two, panda symbols then the second chance scatter feature is activated. The reels on which the panda symbols appear are frozen and the remaining three reels are awarded one respin.

The Microgaming panda themed slot game belongs to its Untamed series, that highlights animals on the endangered species list. Giant Panda is the second slot game of this series. Untamed – Giant Panda is also an all ways slot game, but offers 243 ways to win because there are three rows across the reels. The graphics are slicker and the symbols include the panda, the bamboo forest and the Chinese mountainside. Giant Panda is a features rich video slot. The Collect-A-Wild feature keeps accumulating wild symbols on each reel. When four wild symbols have been collected on a reel it will turn entirely wild for four spins. The Brilliant Wilds feature freezes the wild symbols for the remaining free spins. Your Gamble feature is the upgraded version of the traditional Microgaming gamble game. It allows players to adjust the gamble odds according to their risk taking propensity.
