Panda Money Megaways Review
The Prize Builder feature is quite captivating at first glance but I'm not sure if Megaways fans are going to see this as something new or rather just a little nuanced. Either way, it has the power to build up some decent wins and who doesn't love those?
Standard Oriental imagery keeps our eyes firmly fixed on the prize in this slot with typical waterfalls, bamboo and rockery in every corner. You can listen to the tranquil sounds of the birds chirping until you hit the spin button and then the game bursts into some sort of 80s Oriental-themed, synth-pop arrangement. It's good fun and just the right amount of over-the-top entertainment that I enjoy!
The base game animations are a little basic and as the panda begins to chew on the bamboo symbols during the bonus game, you realise that some of these elements are quite clumsy and could have been produced better.
The game is very reliant on the Prize Builder as without it, no top wins are possible and nothing would really happen! Wild symbols may occasionally add to the excitement and those Scatter symbols are obviously a welcome sight. You'll need to make your way to the bonus round to start building those wins and in some areas outside the UK, it's possible to buy your way straight in for 100x.
There is potential here to land some incredible sums of cash with an unbelievable 67,330x up for grabs. The contrast between the payout potential compared to the gameplay and design tells us all we need to know about Panda Money Megaways—it was made for players who are searching for a big win. The RTP is 96.10% and the volatility is very high.
I did enjoy some elements of Panda Money Megaways, however, I prefer a base game with a bit more personality. It's very clear that this slot is all about the wins and everything else is kind of surplus. If you're after clever features and more of a storyline, then you might want to give this a swerve, but if your goal for today is to land a huge prize, then you could do a lot worse than a few spins on this slot.
