Pandas are almost on the verge of extinction in many countries unfortunately. We may or may not see these cute and lovely animals in large numbers after a few more years. But what we will be definitely seeing is the Big Panda game about for some time to come.
Big Panda Slots Game Quick Start Guide
This is one of the many fantastic offerings from Cayetano Gaming. Pandas are native to China so the slot is a Chinese themed slot as you guessed. But is the slot good enough or will it too fizzle out after some? my guess is not as it’s solid overall in most game aspects. This pokie is 5 reeled offering 20 bet lines with some clever bonus features.

Slot layout 101
The game is set in a soothing mountain background. It carries a mix of blue and white color that calms the mind. The reels are set in a red colored frame that looks like an entrance to a temple. This entrance displays intricate designs on it and a very Chinese looking roof. It has symbols that are very unique to the game.
Reel symbols 101
The reel symbols that form a backbone of the game are a sort of funny. The panda bear is dressed up as a man, complete with nice clothes and a hat. The symbols consist of a gong, Yin Yang coin, a lantern and interestingly a bonsai tree. The poker cards too share a place among these symbols.
Base game symbols and pay tables
- The Gong: This is a top paying icon. It gives 200 coins for 5 of a kind, 100 coins for spotting 4 of them in a row and 35 credits for 3 of a kind.
- Yin and Yang coin: This symbol yields 160 coins for landing with 5 of the similar symbols consecutively, 80 coins for 4 of them and 30 coins for 3 in a row.
- The Lantern: This gives you 120 for 5, 70 for 4 and 25 for 3 of a kind.
- The Bonsai: This interesting inclusion fetches 100 credits for landing with 5 of them, 60 for 4 and 20 for 3 similar ones together.
- Poker Card Symbols: The card symbols from Ace to 10 pay in the descending order. The Ace, King, Queen, Jack and number 10 give away 90, 70, 60, 50 and 40 coins respectively.
Bonus games and features
- Wild: Our very own Panda is a wild symbol.
- Scatter: The lucky Yin Yang symbol becomes a scatter in this game.
- Bonus with Wild: If you manage to get 5 wilds in a row, you will get 400 coins straightaway. You can land with a wild when there are random fireworks on the screen. This might be a regular wild or it can be in its expansive form, taking up the whole reel.
- Wheel of Fortune: For this feature to get initiated, you are required to get 3 or 3+ Yin Yang icons. You are awarded with 7 spins of the wheel and you can draw a prize from each one of them. You can win anywhere between x3 and x100 of your wagered amount and also an opportunity to duplicate the payout if the reels stop at Double All sign.
Final thoughts and score
The Big Panda iPad slot does not offer huge payouts and jackpots but if you are lucky to hit the wild or scatter, you are in for a good time with the chubby animal so we score it a 7.7 points in our game guide.
