High 5, a partner of IGT, has released some interesting online slots and Shadow of the Panther is one of them. The slot had a mystic gaming atmosphere, but some people may feel claustrophobic about its dark backdrop. It is capable of taking you right into the depths of the jungle where you can learn more about the mysterious panther and interact with tribesmen.
Set against the very heart of the jungle, the reels feature brilliant symbols of panthers, tribesmen, jaguars, three types of jewelry, and leopards along with high-value card symbols such as Queen, King, and Ace. You can activate up to thirty paylines of this slot and choose from coin values such as 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, and 10.00.
The slot has three rows and five reels and super stacked symbols that count as two instead of one. You can play the game manually or use the auto play feature to spin the reels automatically up to 25 times. There is no music playing in the background, but you can hear some sound effects when you set the reels spinning.
Thanks to the slot's super stacked feature, wild symbol, scatter symbol, and free spins, you can win a nice pile of coins while spinning the reels of this slot. Land five wild symbols to take home a pile of 1000 coins. Even if you land only four, you will find a prize of 250 coins in your pocket. Superstacked symbol combinations have fixed payouts in the range of 300 coins to 8 coins. The lowest paying symbols are the jewels.
The wild game logo symbol can make you rich because it serves as the wild, which can substitute for all other symbols except the scatters. You can use this wild to create winning combinations and add coins to your balance. As previously mentioned, you will win 1000 coins, 250 coins, 50 coins, and 15 coins if you land five, four, three, and two wild symbols, respectively.
The tribesman, the panther, the leopard, and the jaguar appear super stacked on an activated payline. Whenever they appear super stacked, they count as two.
To get free spins, you must land at least five golden scatter symbols on the reels - does not matter where. The golden scatter symbol is super stacked and counts as two symbols whenever it appears in the super stacked form on the reels. If you land five, six, seven, or eight scatters at any place on the reels, you will activate five, seven, ten, or fifteen free spins, respectively. The only downside is that you cannot re-activate the free spins while playing a free spin.
You can play Shadow of the Panther on the move because it has been optimized for a variety devices operating on the Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Phone platforms. You don't have to download any app or software to enjoy this game. You just have to visit the game lobby of your online casino, find the Shadow of the Panther game icon, and tap on it to load it in your mobile device browser. But you have to make sure that you get a fast and reliable Internet connection.
The mobile version of Shadow of the Panther is as good as the desktop version because the game software has been tweaked so that the graphics fit into the smaller screens. Shadow of the Panther on mobile has the same super stacked symbols and free games as the desktop version.
We don't think that this is one of those slots that stand out in a crowd. Shadow of the Panther is more of a jungle-themed slot than a panther-themed slot. The developers of this game could have introduced jungle-related sound effects to improve its environment. A few more bonus features would also have been greatly appreciated.
The best features of this slot are its beautifully designed game icons, which look brilliant against the dark background. We also liked the super stacks and the free games features. Shadow of the Panther is a nice slot to play although it is hardly innovative enough to shout about.
