Pandamania Slot Review

Mobile Video Slot by NextGen Play at Vera & John »

What is this mobile slot about?

This is as cute as a sugar crazed escaped Zoo panda could be, with random wilds, bright colourful graphics and your standard free spins.

And we mean it when we say cute. Pandamania mobile slot is deliciously cute. From the tight up zoo keeper symbol, to the little panda who bicycles across your screen at any time to give you random wild symbols, it’s basically slotdorable.

What it isn’t, is particularly exciting. And again, we are not talking theme, which works quite well in a fun and zany way, but the fact that there’s not a huge amount to be won in this NextGen slot machine.

Pandamania slot has boring free spins

We should probably get to the heart of the problem first.

We should point out that we did get a 134x our win during the free spin once, so it’s not all about money. Clearly, every once in a while, you can get some decent cash.

But the reason for that is because the random wild shows up more often to give you some good wins from time to time. Mostly though, you’re lucky to get 20x your bet.

And then, out of nowhere it thrills

But that’s the thing about this Pandamania slot game, mostly you are lucky to even get 10x your bet – whether that’s through the random wilds that show up fairly often, or the click me bonus that helps keep you topped up.

And then, out of nowhere, you’ll get a 30x to 50x your bet win, and you’ll wake up from your slumber and wonder if this game is worth playing.

Well, it is worth playing if what you are looking for is to spin, spin, spin well into the night. We were able to play for hours on this video slot, with not the biggest budget in the world.

At the same time, at very few points did we feel we could have ended with a big enough win to cash out anything decent. If what you are looking for is a simple NextGen game with click me and pick me bonus, then we probably still prefer playing on something like Spanish Eyes (which has a 3x multiplier on the free spins) or the brilliant Potion Commotion slot (where the free spins come often).

But then again, there’s nothing quite like a little Pandamania to bring out the crazy in all of us.

In-game bonus features

Random Wild Bonus: At any point after any spin, the panda will waltz in on his bicycle and give you extra random wilds on the screen. Usually one, sometimes two, rarely more than three.

Scatters & Free Spins: Get three or more 'Pandamania slot' scatters signs anywhere on the five reels and you'll get 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier.

Aside form the multiplier, the other good thing about this feature is that the random wild panda shows up more often. In fact, basically on 8 out of the 10 spins that you'll get.

It does mean you are likely to walk away with something and we have had some good results with this double combination of wilds and multipliers.

Pick Me Bonus: Get the 'Pick me' cage symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you'll get to choose any of the three cages to break out the panda.

It's the most frequent of the bonus features, so usually you're looking at about 2x to 10x your bet, but every once in a while you'll hit a 'Win all' signs, where you'll win all three prizes under all three symbols, and here you're talking higher to about 40x your bet.


Closing thoughts

Pandamania mobile slot is a fairly standard, bonus game machine. You spin, you win a little, you get the bonus feature often.

But you'll only win 40x to 50x your bet every once in long while. And the 100x or more wins are even harder to find. They are there, of that we have no doubt, but mostly Pandamania hope that it's cute theme will entertain you enough so you won't notice that you're budget isn't moving very far fast.

For low variance fun, it can be worth a few spins, but we preferred the more unusual Wild West slot or the slightly harder hitting Judge Dredd game.
