Panda King – Despite the fact that we all like pandas, we do not adore Panda King. This uninteresting slot fails to captivate on the appearance, and under the surface, it delivers a low return to player (RTP) and inadequate volatility.

Panda King is the subject of this review.
Theme and plot of the story
This video game is centered on the endearing black and white bears of East Asia, with their bamboo forest environment serving as a background for a variety of Sinocentric trinkets. The style of the slot feels like it had more in common with a London Chinese takeaway menu than the real culture of China and does look a little tacky at first glance.
Nonetheless, since the pandas are adorable and the lotus blooms, pagodas, and ornate waterfalls are all beautifully drawn in this Ainsworth’s gift, the theme does, in the end, sort of work.
Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.
Generally speaking, the designs are well-drawn, with readily distinguishable symbols presented in high-definition.
These symbols are animated neatly, with superb supporting sound effects, but there is no music playing in the background. This might be a blessing given how bad many slot soundtracks are, but a good soundtrack could have really added to the mood on this one.
The gameplay is rather bland with no gamble feature, no minigames, and only free spins as a bonus. The primary game is a five-reel, twenty-payline slot with twenty different winning combinations. Despite the fact that the game allows you to choose how many winlines you want to play, it is not recommended.
There has been little effort put into making the game more entertaining than this.
Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.
There are three special symbols in this game:
One of these symbols is the Panda, which acts as a Wild (or, as the game refers to it, a “Substitute”) sign, and it may substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter symbol.
In addition to the Wild sign, there is also a Scatter symbol. When three or more Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, regardless of where they land on the reels, the game activates the free spin bonus.
Free spins are triggered by the Yin Yang Scatter symbol. You can then choose from three options – eight, ten, or twelve free spins with a different set of symbols all converted to Wilds. The greater the number of spins, the fewer total Panda symbols appear on the reels during those spins.
Suppose you choose eight free spins. During those eight spins, all of the symbols representing the waterfall, coin, pergola, lotus, and ingot will be replaced by the Panda symbol, which is represented by the tiger. If you pick twelve free spins, only the first three will be replaced with Pandas if you choose the first option.
The Fortune sign is the last special symbol, and it can only occur during free spins. The Fortune symbol appears stacked on all five reels and pays out in any position, up to a maximum of five symbol hits in a row. Additionally, anytime you get at least 5 Fortune symbols in combination with at least 3 Wilds, your earnings are doubled by three.
Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance
The return to player on this slot machine is a very low 94.34%. This is a deal breaker for us; anything less than 96 percent is something we avoid at all costs.
We found that the bare minimum wager per spin on the site we tested was €/£/$0.20 and the bare maximum bet per spin was €/£/$100.00 on the site we tested.
The slot machine has a medium level of volatility. This is incompatible with our plans, which are heavily reliant on high-volatility slots to achieve their objectives.
Even if Panda King’s return on investment (RTI) were not so poor, it would still not be recommended. Its volatility isn’t high enough, the gameplay isn’t engaging, and the graphic and design features aren’t visually appealing or appealing.
