Panda Money Base Game

Panda Money Base Game and Features

Panda Money is a 6-reel Video Slot with up to 15,625 ways to win active. Wins form when 3 or more of the same symbol types (or 2 or more of the highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.

Panda Money can be played for as little as £.€0.20 per spin, up to a maximum of £.€12 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.10% and a max win cap of 67,330x.

The highest-paying symbol here is the Purple Flower, followed by the Fish, Butterfly, and Bracelet. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine.

Wilds appear only on the Sliding Reel, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters. Wild symbols may fall onto the reels below during the Prize Builder feature. The additional Sliding Reel above the main reel set adds a symbol to the reel it is above for reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Prize Builder Feature

During gameplay, whenever a win occurs, all winning symbols will fall to the bottom of the reel they are on and replaced before the win is paid.

Winning symbols in the additional Sliding Reel will fall onto the reels below them as long as there is room, and may increase the number of symbols on the reels. If a win is improved, another Prize Builder will occur. The Prize Builder will continue until no improvements are made, at which point the win is paid.

Win Exchange

In the base game, if you win 100x your bet or more, you will be given the option to exchange your total win for 8 Free Spins. However, when you win between 25x and 100x your bet, you will have the option to Gamble your total win for a chance to win 8 Free Spins via a Gamble Wheel.

Panda Money: Free Spins

Landing 3 Panda Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 8 Free Spins. Additional Scatters after the third will award an extra +2 Free Spins per scatter.

During Free Spins, an Unlimited Multiplier starting at x1 is active. Each time symbols are removed during the Prize Builder, special Bamboo symbols may appear. For every 5 Bamboo symbols, the Win Multiplier is increased by +x1.

Landing 3 or more Scatters during this time will award an additional +2 Free Spins, plus an extra +2 Free Spins for every Scatter after the third.

Panda Money: Our Verdict

Panda Money by Big Time Gaming features the Prize Builder mechanic, which holds winning symbols before triggering a respin. This aspect can prove fairly effective when the Megaways are up, particularly during Free Spins when combined with a multiplier. However, despite this feature, Panda Money’s gameplay lacks the same level of excitement found in other titles. Big Time Gaming is renowned for their popular games, and Panda Money doesn’t quite live up to the standard set by its predecessors.

Despite Panda Money’s impressive maximum win potential of 67,330x, achieving such monumental wins may seem somewhat unrealistic. While the game may tempt players with the allure of massive rewards, it may fall short of these ambitious expectations.

In summary, while Panda Money introduces the enticing prospect of substantial prizes, it fails to capture the same level of excitement and engagement as other Big Time Gaming offerings, and it may leave players longing for more.
