A Vacation With Penguins At Playtech Casinos


A common feature in online slots is to have animals play the role of humans. There are so many of them that it would be futile to prepare a list. Such video slots tend to have a touch of the comic in them. A perfect example is Penguin Vacation from Playtech. The video slot game is live at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

The penguin family is on vacation and the baby penguin is the cynosure of all eyes. It is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and it appears stacked on the reels. When you get a full stack on any reel, the win animation creates an expanded ice slide with the baby penguin slithering down. The baby penguin also awards the top line payouts with a combination of five symbols on an active payline awarding 10,000 coins. Aggressive slots players will love this high variance. Papa penguin roams around with a camera recording the penguin vacation for the family album. Mama penguin has donned her Sunday hat and boy penguin is in a baseball cap. The other thematic symbols are a travel suitcase and an ice lolly with a frozen fish in it. The low symbols are the playing card icons crafted as ice figures.

The fishing hole is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. This symbol also activates the Fishing Bonus free spins feature. The basic award is 8 free spins with a 2x payout multiplier. But first you are taken to the second screen where a number of fishing holes in ice are displayed. You pick two of them for additional free spins and an enhancement in the payout multiplier. Through this process you can win up to 33 free spins and a 15x payout multiplier. If three or more scatter symbols reappear during the feature then you get 15 more free spins with the same payout multiplier.

Penguin Vacation includes the optional Playtech gamble game. You can activate this game after any winning spin. You have to indicate the colour of the next card. If you guess right then your payout is doubled. If you guess wrong then you lose your payout. Penguin Vacation is a 5x3 video slot with 20 selectable paylines. When playing with all paylines active, the maximum total bet is $10. High roller players may not persist with this online slot in the long run.
