Theme and Concept (9)
Penguin Power creates the polar habitat through the snow filled design of the reels and background. The changing colors of the sky in the Igloo animation recreate the polar phenomenon. The Baby Penguin sliding into the Igloo is another interesting touch. However, the use of high value card symbols instead of other thematic symbols denotes a weakness in executing the theme.
Game Features (9)
The wild and scatter symbols have been used well in the Penguin Power slot game. Combining them in a unique way to offer additional bonuses during the free spins is definitely the masterstroke in this game. However it cannot take the place of a bonus game on the second screen. The absence of the bonus game will remain a drawback.
Betting Options (9)
Though Penguin Power offers adequate paylines and a fantastic coin size range, players have been deprived of the opportunity to choose the number of coins per payline. This reduces the betting options available to the players. The lowest bet per spin that players can place is 0.01 credits and the largest is 100 credits.
The random progressive jackpot adds to the excitement of the game. The fixed jackpots are somewhat on the lower side, but this is not too bad in view of the fact that the payouts are doubled when wild symbols are used.
