What is this mobile slot about?

This Penguin Vacation slot machine is one luxury trip to the South Pole, with stacked wilds and some impressive multipliers on the free spins. Will you survive the icy air?

Because we haven’t on several occasions with this Playtech gem. Don’t let these cute and cuddly critters fool you. They make look like your shorter black and white versions of the your archetypical family, but under those pearls, Hawaiian shirts and funny baseball caps hides a Mafia family ready to take your cash at gun point.

Which is just brilliant.

Penguin Vacation slot game is a copy

And a very good one. We like big thrill slots. The kind where you really feel that somewhere in the reels hides a life changing jackpot. Which is why when we feel poor we will play on such jackpot slots as Mega Moolah or Marvel’s Fantastic Four.

When it’s the beginning of the month and we have some cash to spare, we’ll play high thrill slots that risk running away with your cash. One of our favourites, though a little old fashion in style, is the slot Great Blue.

Penguin Vacation mobile slot is an exact copy of it’s older underwater sister. We prefer the theme of Great Blue, but we can see why the family of the Tuxedo wearing birds have their fans. The stacked wilds animation where it seems like the baby is sliding down to bigger riches, the fish popsicle, the ‘Antarctic Tours’ luggage… all cute little details that brings this video slot alive.

Pack for a long stay and take twice the cash you need

The stacked wilds are fantastic. They come with a 2x multipliers and often see you through those long cold winters of spins giving you nothing much in return. But Penguin Vacation slot on mobile is all about the free spins where you can hit some big multipliers if you’re lucky. Chances are you’ll walk away from the free spins with maybe 50x to 80x your bet.

And then, one day, you’ll spins and wake up to 250x to 300x your bet. We’ve seen it happen. We’ve heard of it going much higher.

But you’ll have to be in it for the long term and be patient with this little slot for mobile. Budget for a good 200 spins to try and hit that free spins feature a couple of times. You never know, this holiday may pay for itself.

In-game bonus features

Stacked Wilds: The sliding penguin is the wild symbol and comes stacked throughout the 5 reels. He comes with a healthy 2x multiplier on any win.

Scatters & Free Spins: The fishing hole is the scatter symbol; find three anywhere on the reels to active a mini game where you go fishing for free spins and multipliers.

As soon as you trigger this feature you start with 8 free spins with a 2x multiplier. There are 5 fishing holes, all with extra free spins and multipliers for the taking. In total you can win anything up to 33 free spins and 15x multiplier.

This feature can be re-triggered for more free spins infinitely, but not more multipliers. However, it's not often it does re-trigger.


Closing thoughts

Personally, the theme doesn't beat our favourite Great Blue. But, if you like high risk slots with a decent betting range and cute cuddly frozen symbols, Penguin Vacation mobile slot is a carbon copy of the previously mentioned game and plays just as well.

A well presented and easy to use Android slot and iPad / iPhone slot.
