Overview Of Eye Of The Panda

Hacksaw Gaming’s latest release is based in an underground nightclub owned by a chef turned bouncer that happens to be a Panda! A very interesting concept and as always with Hacksaw the graphics look inviting so let’s take a look.

Slot Description

Eye Of The Panda is a 5 reel, 5 row slot with 27 possible Paylines. Hacksaw’s upgrade on regular Cascading action, Super Cascades kick in following every win. All symbols belonging to winning lines, plus all other instances of winning symbols in view are removed from the reels. This prompts a new set to tumble in for repeated chances at wins, only ending once no new wins form.

The Wild Panda Multipliers are the “reel” stars of the show in Eye of the Panda!

Carrying multiplier values of x2, x3, x4, x5, and x10, these Wild symbols substitute for all regular paying symbols to help complete winning combinations, applying their value to any wins they’re part of. Should more than one Wild Panda share the same winning line, their values are multiplied together and then applied to your win.

With up to 5 Wild Pandas on the same winning line, and multipliers up to x10, you could see a total multiplier of 100,000x awarding an instant max win capped to 10,000x stake.

During the base game, any Wild Panda that lands remains on the grid during that spin until it forms part of a win, after which it’s removed with the next cascade sequence.

Upon landing 3 Scatters you enter the Never Say No To Panda! Feature. Starting off with 10 Free Spins, this bonus sees Wild Pandas that don’t immediately take part in a win get stored in a Panda Collector to the right side of the reels. Whilst the feature is active, Wild Pandas will remain stored in the Collector until a winning line forms on the grid. Once this happens the Pandas jump onto the winning lines and apply their respective multiplier value to the wins. Since the Pandas are Wild, they can create new winning combos too.

On the final spin of the bonus round, Wild Pandas remaining in the Collector will jump back onto the reels regardless if there are existing winning lines or not, in a last ditch effort to give you some final wins. They can even line up in a line for a huge last minute win to turn things around!

A maximum of 5 Pandas can be stored in the Panda Collector at any one time.

Landing 4 Scatters awards the Jumping Panda’s Feature. Starting with 10 Free Spins, the Jumping Pandas feature operates much the same as the base game, with the added benefit of Jumping Wild Pandas hopping to new positions at random between every cascade and new spin. It feels similar to Jammin Jars yet it’s a completely different mechanic.

The first 5 Wild Pandas to land remain in play for the entirety of the feature, meaning you have a much better shot at landing multiple Wild Pandas on the same win line to combine their multipliers into a super multiplier!

Eye Of The Panda Paytable

The paytable in Eye Of The Panda is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to £/€1 per spin. We start with the 10’s, J’s, Q’s, K’s and A’s all paying 1x stake for a full line.  

Moving onto the premium symbols we have the Ice Cream and Boba Tea both paying 5x stake for a full line, the Donut and Fries both pay 7.5x and finally we have the top symbol of the Burger which pays 10x respectively. The Panda is Wild and also pays 10x stake for a full line.

Final Thoughts On Eye Of The Panda

Eye Of The Panda has an RTP of 96.26%, the volatility is rated 3/5 and the maximum win is 10,000x stake. 

As usual, Hacksaw Gaming haven’t failed to deliver with Eye Of The Panda, the graphics are inviting and the soundtrack is subtle yet brutal when big win’s transpire and complement the game perfectly. Speaking of brutal, this is not a game to buy bonuses on unless you have the bankroll to grind them, the base game is interesting enough to just play au naturel and wait for the scatters.

As always thanks for reading and if you fancy visiting the panda’s underground club there’s a link below to a TGC trusted outfit.
