Help the over-worked flightless minions of the dastardly Penguin Emperor break out from their food service slavery in this Penguin City slot.
Set on a normal looking food stall in any Chinatown around the world, the symbols are what you might expect: boxes of noodle, soya sauce, ramen soup…
But here and there, there are hints that this food emporium is not what it seems, as in the kitchen our Penguin friends plan their daring escape.
There are no free spin bonus games in this Penguin City slot machine, instead, you get lots and lots of re-spins.
Every time a wild show ups on the reels you are taken to the Kitchen, where you’ll keep getting re-spins until you get no more wins on the reels.
This usually means around 2 spins each time, which isn’t much, but comes along often enough that you don’t really mind, especially as the company you’ll keep is so darn adorable.
During those re-spins the penguins will jump off the shelves and try and escape out of the reels using strategically placed trampolines.
If they manage to, they will either give you an extra wild on the reels or change a symbol on reel 3 to give you a win, and further re-spins.
If they don’t, they go down into the blackhole conveyor belt where they get wrapped up in a takeaway box, never to be seen again.
It’s little details like that that make it impossible not to smile when this slot feature hits, that you don’t even mind that these Penguins are, generally, terrible escape artists.
Every once in a wild, the massive Emperor Penguin will show up on reel 3 and cover the reel as a wild during the re-spin. He will then slowly descend the reels, giving you a guaranteed 3 re-spins, win or no win.
But it doesn’t really matter. This Penguin City mobile slot is a low variance easy playing game with a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin that is meant to make you smile.
Add a decent top win of 1647 times your bet and what you have here is a fun, beautifully detailed, Yggdrasil game.

Pay Both Ways and All Ways: You get a win in this slot machine by landing identical symbols on three or more consecutive reels, either from left to right or right to left.
Wild Re-spins (or The Penguin Escape Mode): The wild symbols show up on all reels and can be used to replace any symbol to create a win.
The wild will now stay in place, but you'll head to the kitchens for a re-spin. You will keep getting re-spins for as long as you keep getting wins.
During your respins, one of four things will happen:
You will then be taken to the base game where you only need to wait for 10 to 15 spins for the next wild win.
Stacked Emperor Wild: During the Penguin Escape Mode, the Emperor Penguin can show up and cover the whole of reel 3.
The other little penguins will stop jumping on screen, and the Emperor symbols will start 3 re-spins.
On each re-spin, he slowly descends down reel 3 until he completely disappears. He acts as a wild and helps create some decent wins.
We like it when Yggdrasil Gaming keeps thing simple, and this Penguin City game is very simple at heart.
You basically get re-spins on the wild symbol for as long as you keep winning. Every once in a while, you get penguins giving you extra wilds or turning symbols in your favour.
The fact that this slot machine pays both ways and pays all ways helps keep the wins coming along quickly, even if they are not always that big.
Perfect for those of us who prefer games to be fun and light, rather than risky and dark (unlike the Vikings Go To Hell slot).
