Most of the time while you spin, you’ll hear electronic warble sound effects. After some spins, a circus type tune kicks in. This is good news, as the next thing you’ll see is a panda on a bike (complete with balloons) coming across the bottom of the reels from the left.
This will change one or more of the symbols into wilds. You’ll know you are about to win, as a loud elephant trumpet ends each sequence.
Animations for the pick me bonus are also fun. To trigger this, you need three of the cage symbols. These say; ‘Pick Me’ and appear on the middle three reels only. You’ll get the chance to click on one of them. Next, the panda breaks the bars and escapes! It leaves behind a cash win – which is instantly added to your bankroll. If you are lucky, you might also find either a ‘pick again’ sign, or entry to the free spins bonus.
More mayhem occurs in the free spins game. You need to get three or more of the scatter symbols to trigger this – with 10 free spins for any number 3 or above. They show the Pandamania logo.
Play is at the same stake as the base game – though any wins are doubled during the free spins. You will also get the escaped panda on a bike more often. You can retrigger this bonus at any time with three or more logo symbols.
