We all know the infamous tune, but what do you know about the slot game? Pink Panther is one our favourite slot games to have hit the online casino market. Developed by the experts of Playtech, this game reminds us how much we love the pink icon. The game is a fitting tribute to the classic film series which aired in the 1960s. The game highlights the most important elements of the series including the infamous Inspector Clouseau.
This game is one step up from others, featuring 5 reels and 40 adjustable paylines. The beginning of the game features the pink master himself announcing two progressive jackpots. We can’t imagine an opening much better than that. The slot game itself is set against a white background, which sets the mood for the bumbling genius of the inspector presented in the classic cartoon style.
As for betting, the coin denominations are pretty standard, ranging from .01 to 5.00. Players can play up to 10 coins per payline and can use the handy Max Bet button to bet the maximum amount of coins using the chosen coin denomination. (e.g. 0.01 with a maximum bet of 4.00). High rollers have been known to go wild with the panther and play up to 2,000 credits a spin for larger payouts. And while you’re at it, also make sure to check out the unique Gamble button feature, which allows players who have already spun winning combinations to see if they can double or even triple their winnings.
Symbols include standard card symbols, pink panther paw prints, looking glasses, pink paint, bombs and Inspector Clouseau. The Pink Panther resembles the Wild symbol which can substitute any symbol to complete a winline, except the Scatter. Land five Wilds and you will be kindly rewarded with 5,000 coins. The Pink Panther online slot also contains a wide variety of bonus games including, Crack the Pink Code, The Color Pink, Wheel of Pink, Pink Trail, and the Pink Pow.
The bonus games can be triggered randomly during the main game and reward players with multipliers, cash and free spins. In the Color Pink game for example the Pink Panther and the Little Man paint a wall of numbers in pink and blue, respectively. The sum of pink numbers on the wall is multiplied by your total bet to form a cash prize.
In the Pink Trail bonus Inspector Clouseau follows pink footsteps for four rounds to find the stolen diamond. Each footstep reveals a cash prize that’ll be multiplier by the total bet. After each round you have the option to either continue or collect. If you choose to continue, you risk falling into a trap which halves your prize and leads you back to the main game.
In the Crack the Pink bonus the Pink Panther opens safes revealing free games, multipliers or an expanding wild. The game ends when the panther opens a safe containing dynamite. He then is rewarded two more free games starting with the bonuses that were revealed.
Finally, the Wheel of Pink bonus lets you spin two wheels; one containing cash prizes (multipliers of the total bet) and another one that either says ‘respin’ or ‘collect’. Cash prizes accumulate with every spin, so you’ll want to get as many respins as possible to rack up those winnings.
And as if all of this wasn’t enough, this MGM slot also has a progressive jackpots: Major and Minor Pink. The jackpot game is triggered randomly and doesn’t require a certain bet amount, although, the higher the bet, the greater the chances of entering. The jackpot game contains 12 doors which have to be opened to uncover characters. Find five Pink Panthers and bag yourself the Major Pink jackpot. Four Pink Panthers gives you the Minor Pink jackpot, while three Little Mans will cheer you up with a fixed consolation prize. It’s easy to see why this slot is one of our favourites!
