If you have played any NetEnt slots before, you’ll be familiar with the Happy Panda bonus features. If not, let’s get cracking with all of them below.
Suitably, for the Happy Panda slot, a bamboo munching panda symbol acts as a wild and appears anywhere on the reels in both the base game and free spins rounds. It stands in for all symbols except scatters and bonus symbols.
Your best friend, scatter, comes in the form of a pink lotus flower and activates free spins if you land at least 3 scatter symbols of a kind.
Falling Wild Re-spins & Gift of Double Wins
This feature is a bit of a mouthful to spell out but you’ll want to trigger it as much as you can with one or more wilds landing on the reels in the base game and the free spins round.
During this feature, with each spin the wild moves down the row until it completely disappears off the reels giving you respins along the way. But if you land a wild behind another wild, it will expand to form a fully wild reel known in Happy Panda as the Gift of Double Wins.
Landing 3 or more scatters during the base game and the Falling Wild Re-spins will activate the Happy Panda free spins round with up to 12 free spins for 5 scatters.
Additionally, landing any wilds during the free spins feature will automatically make the wilds expand, awarding you with more respins via the superb Falling Wild Re-spins feature.
To make players even happier, there’s a Happy Panda progressive jackpot and two fixed Giant Panda Jackpots included in the game. These can be activated with 3 or more bonus symbols, golden panda paw coins, landing anywhere on the reels in the base game and re-spin feature.
Reels here fill up in random positions with bonus symbols that you’ve collected. Each bonus symbol has a value of up to 200x your stake and will remain placed in their allocated spots for the duration of the jackpot feature.
Filling one row with bonus coins awards a Minor jackpot of 20x your stake, two rows – a Major jackpot of 100x your bet and three rows award the mighty progressive Mega jackpot.
