Aristocrat has developed the Wild Panda online slot in honor of the panda, an endangered wild creature that is adored all over the world because it is furry, friendly, cuddly, and loveable.
Several online slots have been developed based on the panda theme, but this one has graphics that can make players feel that they are in China. The reels feature symbols of fish, a temple built on top of a mountain, high-value card symbols, lotuses, stringed instruments, and bamboo plants, giving players a taste of Chinese culture while familiarizing them with the lifestyle of the panda.
Wild Panda slot has 100 paylines, coin denominations ranging from 0.01 to 1.00, four rows, and five reels. You can bet up to 50 credits per spin of the reels, a fact that makes the slot popular among players with different bankroll sizes. Once you have adjusted your bet size, you can click on the Spin button to spin the reels once. If you don't like spinning the reels manually, you can also use the Auto Spin button to set the game to spin the reels automatically for up to 50 spins.
If you click on the Pays button, you will get an idea of exactly how much you can win while spinning the reels of this slot.
The fixed payouts are quite decent, and you can win the top payout of 1000 coins by landing five mountaintop temple symbols across an active payline. The other thematic symbols fetch payouts ranging from 200 coins to 10 coins. If you land combinations of high-value card symbols, you can win prizes ranging from 100 coins to five coins. To win more prizes, you just have to spell Panda and win a nice bunch of free spins with extra wild symbols.
The letters P, A, N, and D appear on certain King, Queen, and Jack symbols. The letter P appears only on the first reel, the letter A appears only on the second and fifth reels, the letter N appears only on the third reel, and the letter D appears only on the fourth reel.
You will be awarded five free spins if you spell Panda by landing the appropriate letters on the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth reels. All the letter symbols turn into the wild Panda symbol and substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Panda symbols have a payout structure of their own. You will win 2000 coins, 1000 coins, and 500 coins for landing combinations of five, four, and three pandas, respectively. The only disappointment is that you cannot re-activate the free spins during the free spins bonus round.

Since the game software is based on HTML5 technology, you can access the slot on your mobile device browser without having to download and install any native app. You only have to sign up at an online casino that offers Aristocrat slots and a web-based mobile gaming app.

You game will load quickly on your browser. You can enjoy a smooth and uninterrupted slot gaming experience only if you have a fast Internet connection.
The title Wild Panda is rather misleading as the slot is more about China than about pandas. However, Aristocrat has done justice to the panda by including a wild panda symbol that comes into play only during the free spins feature. The symbol of the bamboo plant, which happens to be the panda's favourite food, also suits the slot's title. The rest of the slot resembles the hundreds and thousands of China themed slots that flood the online slot gaming industry.
Wild Panda has some beautiful graphics, but we must warn you that the slot has limited bonus features that are hard to unlock. The 100 ways to win and generous fixed payouts may compensate for the lack of bonus features, but you may feel bored spinning the reels of this slot especially if you fail to spell Panda at the earliest possible.
