The Pink Panther and Inspector Clouseau show up on the reels in a brand new 5-reel 40-payline Playtech powered online video slot machine. The layout is a bit different than the machines we are used to seeing from the software, with added paylines and many different bonus features.
There are many bonus features that make this slot stand out from the rest. In the bonus games alone, there are five different games you can trigger to help boost your bankroll. Inspector Clouseau, The Little Man and the Pink Panther himself appear on the reels, along with other symbols such as a bomb, a paint can and standard playing card values to create many winning payline combinations.
The Pink Panther is a coin based games and the coin denominations vary between $0.01 and $.50. If you like to play high stakes, this game can deliver because of the added paylines and the high coin value can make for a pretty large bet. However, if you like to play smaller bet it is also possible to reduce the paylines to your personal preference. You must have all the paylines enabled to ensure the maximum winning potential of every spin. Also, since there is a progressive jackpot attached to The Pink Panther, the more you bet the bigger the chance you have to win big.
Wild and Scatter:
The Pink Panther is wild and substitutes for all other symbols on the reels besides the Pink Panther Logo scatter symbol. This wild will also pay out the largest fixed jackpot in the game of 5,000 coins for five Pink Panther symbols on an enabled payline.
The scatter in the game is the Pink Panther logo and it will award scatter wins for two or more logos anywhere on the reels. Your total bet is multiplied according to the paytable. Depending on the amount of scatters you receive on a single spin, the win can be very profitable. Five scatters will pay out 125x the total wager, which could substantially increase your balance.
There are five random bonus features that may be triggered during your game play. All of these games do not require a special symbol pattern to activate the bonus. Here is a short detailed review of the bonus games I triggered when playing The Pink Panther.
The first bonus feature is the Crack the Code game. You are presented with safes which hold free spins, you can open until dynamite explodes, ending the feature. Once this part of the bonus ends, you will play out your free spins on the reels. A total of 29 free games can be won in the Crack the Code game, and it cannot be retriggered.
Another feature is the Pink Pow. Symbols randomly explode and turn other symbols into wilds, creating more winning paylines.
The Color Pink is another cool bonus feature where the Pink Panther and the Little Man paint random numbers on the wall. All of the numbers that are painted in pink will determine how much of a bonus prize you will win. It’s determined by adding all the pink numbers up and adding the sum to your balance. If you aren’t happy with the first result, you can try again up to three times.
The Wheel of Pink is a wheel based games where you can spin to win the prizes on the outside reels, and the inner wheel will hold re-spins. You just spin and wait to collect awesome prizes. If you land on collect, it will end the feature and you will be returned the game.
The Pink Trail bonus is the final bonus round and it will take you to a few different levels as you help try to solve the mystery. The Pink Panther will help the Inspector follow the clues. As the game advances, it gets a bit more difficult, however; it gives you the option to quit or play. If you continue, your prizes could be substantially more if you make it through all four levels. If you get trapped in a level, your winnings will be cut in half. If you make it through all the levels successfully, your winnings will be doubled.
The Minor Pink and the Major Pink are triggered at random, and you will be given a choice of 12 doors to choose from. Five Pink Panthers will award the Major Pink jackpot, and four Inspectors will award the Minor. If you get three Little Man icons, you are only given a consolation prize.
