Penguin Power is a slot game developed by RTG that, unsurprisingly, has an ice-based theme. Basically, you are an explorer who has been able to set up camp on the ice sheet in order to watch the penguins. You want to watch for different ages of penguins as they will provide you with various bonuses, so it does initially sound as if this game will be a lot of fun.
Overview of Penguin Power
This game consists of 5 reels while it also offers you 20 different paylines. This is perfectly reasonable for this type of slot, and then it also has a random jackpot that can be triggered at any point. These random jackpots are fun and keep you wanting to go back as you never know when it could be triggered in your favor.
In keeping with the theme, the reels are covered in ice, and it has a cold, Antarctic backdrop to it. The symbols include various sizes of penguins as well as other animals you associate with the ice along with the more common card symbols. Overall, this is pretty well done as a theme.
How to Play Penguin Power
To play this game, you need to kick things off by choosing the size of the coin you want to play with. Click on the up and down arrows to change the value. Also, choose the number of paylines you want to bet with remembering that your bet is multiplied depending on the number of paylines you wish to include. Once you are satisfied, hit that spin button to see how the reels land for you.
Bonus Features of Penguin Power
The baby penguin symbol acts as the wild, but it’s only going to appear on reels 2, 3, or 4. When it does appear, it is going to swap itself for pretty much any other symbol aside from the scatter to then provide you with more opportunities to land some winning lines.
The scatter symbol with this game is the igloo, and you need to land at least 2 of them anywhere on the board to kick things into action. Land 3 of them and it opens up the penguin slide game. Here, you could potentially win up to 25 free spins, and some additional baby penguins and igloos will also be thrown into the reels. Land a penguin on the same reel as an igloo, and it slides into the igloo to reveal a prize.
Betting and Payouts for Penguin Power
The minimum bet per line is set at $0.01 while the maximum is $10. That does mean the maximum bet is $200, which is higher than the number of slots out there. The best symbol to get for a payout is the emperor penguin. Land 5 of those guys and your win is paid out at 2500x your stake. Other symbols with reasonable payouts include the seals at 1000x and fish at 500x.
Penguin Power is a fun, laid-back slot game that at least does something a bit different with the bonus games for a change. Also, as you can play for as little as $0.01 per line, it’s perfect for low-ballers as well as those that want to gamble with higher stakes.
