Prowling Panther Slot Machine
If it works for other big cats, then why not throw in a panther too? I’m referring to the 720-way ‘MultiWay Xtra’ game play, jungle theme and overall design of this game. This has been successfully employed for Sumatran Storm (based on a tiger), Siberian Storm (another type of tiger) and Cats (the 5 big cats). If there is one thing that IGT are excellent at, it is taking a winning idea and making more slots out of it – often many more slots.
What you’ll immediately notice about this one is that the reels are not in the familiar rectangle. Instead they are in a diamond formation. From left to right there are 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 rows. What you will then find is that wins from right to left pay out. This takes some getting used to, as left to right wins have been the norm for so many years.
The graphics and sounds are very professional, as you would expect from an IGT slot. This is not quite as rich or impressive as Siberian Storm, though the dramatic music, occasional roar and build-up when the bonus symbols hit are excellent.
Prowling Panther features a free spins bonus round, which can start with up to 96 spins. This takes you to different coloured reels, and ups the temp of the background music. There is nothing particularly remarkable about the gameplay during this feature though.
