Penguin Power was launched back in 2011 so it’s one of the older releases from RTG, but it doesn’t feel that old; thanks to the happy cuddly penguin enjoying his day it’s a really fun slot with decent graphics and good gameplay.

You’ll be visiting the North Pole in this one, so expect frost, snow, ice and all those wintry effects. The first of Penguin Power’s symbols are the playing card additions running from the green 9 and yellow 10 up to the red K and blue A. Then comes the symbol of a penguin egg about to hatch, followed by a fresh fish caught for dinner. The penguins aren’t the only animals on the reels either, as there’s also a symbol of a seal, while the adult penguin is the final symbol in the slot.

The setup of Penguin Power is standard, featuring five reels and three rows with 20 pay lines for you to bet on. These lines are able to be reduced by using the relevant buttons at the bottom of the reels. You’re also able to customise your bet with the set of up and down buttons next to the “Bet” section. These allow you to choose from wagers between 1p and £5 per line. This means that the slot’s maximum overall wager possibility stands at £100 per spin.

Special Features

Note the progressive jackpot that is only display at the top of the reels. This random jackpot will continue increasing in value whenever someone places a bet on the game. You don’t need to do anything specific to be in with a chance of winning this other than continue spinning the reels. The jackpot can be paid out completely at random, so you have the opportunity of receiving it at any given time.

Baby Penguin

The baby penguin operates as this slot’s wild symbol. Therefore, it can substitute for all other symbol within the slot, with the only exception being the scatter symbols.

Baby penguin wilds only show up on reels two, three and four, however, if they do manage to assist with forming a winning combination then they will also ensure that your pay-out is doubled. So, you can see how helpful the baby penguins can actually be to you.

Igloo

If you see the igloo come into view then take note, because this one is the scatter symbol. Scatters can show up anywhere on the reels and they’ll still provide you with a pay-out regardless of where they land. Five of them coming into view will multiply your overall wager by 200x. It’s also this symbol that is responsible for triggering the game’s bonus feature round:

Penguin Slide Feature – If you manage to land 3 scatters then you’ll be on the receiving end of 5, 10, 15, or 25 free spins as a reward. Extra igloos and baby penguin wilds will come into play during the free spins round too. Furthermore, each baby penguin wild occurring on the same horizontal level as an igloo on reels one and/or five will slide to the igloo in order to reveal bonus wins. These bonuses can be anywhere up to 100x your triggering bet or up to 10 extra free spins on top of your current amount.
