Pandastic Adventure: Journey to the Temple Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters in the base game triggers the Journey to the Temple Free Spins round, awarding 8 Free Spins and a payout of 3x, 5x, and 15x your bet respectively.

During this round, Wild symbols are collected and contribute 8x your bet to the Bonus Prizes. When 8 Wilds are collected, you will automatically enter the Temple Treasure Bonus. Landing a Scatter symbol during this time will award +1 additional Free Spin.

Temple Treasure Bonus

When the Temple Treasure Bonus is active, 3 Respins are awarded that reset each time a new Gold Flower symbol lands in view. Gold Flower symbols award Cash and Bonus Prizes that stick to the reels until the end of the round.

Gold Flowers land with a value between x2 and x10 your bet, whereas Bonus Prizes award 1 of 4 Jackpot Prizes as follows.

  • Grand – Awards 5,000x your bet.
  • Major – Awards 1,000x your bet.
  • Minor – Awards 100x your bet.
  • Mini – Awards 50x your bet.

The Temple Treasure Bonus will end when all Respins are complete, or if all reel positions are filled with Gold Flowers.

Pandastic Adventure: Our Verdict

Pandastic Adventure is a beautifully designed slot that captures the allure of Asian culture beautifully, but did gameplay keep up with appearances?

The first thing you pick up on when you load up the game is 4 Jackpot Prizes sat above the reel set. These Jackpots are a good indication of the type of gameplay we are to expect, and almost always go hand in hand with the Hold & Win mechanic.

The base game can be a little stale from time to time, with no fancy features or modifiers to contend with. Play’n GO is one of a few providers that decline the use of Bonus Buys, so naturally you would expect a couple of juicy features in the base game to keep you company…although that remains to be seen.

However, things pick up in the Free Spins round, where collecting Wild symbols contributes 8x your bet to the Bonus Prizes. Collecting enough of them will open the gates to the Temple Treasure Bonus, which brings the 4 Jackpot Prizes into the fold in a classic game of Hold & Win.

All in all, Pandastic Adventure is indeed an adventure, but perhaps not the most exhilarating adventure thus far from Play’n GO.
