Penguin City Wilds and slot features
During the game, you'll notice on reels 2 and 4 that the Regular Wild symbol appears. Once it does crop up, you can substitute it for all other symbols in the game.
Wilds that are accumulated during a Win become Sticky Wilds for the subsequent spin. Should players win on any Wild, then the Penguin Escape Mode is triggered.
The Penguin Escape Mode
This is where you can help set the little rascals free. This mode contains a different set of reels with penguins located at the left-hand side with conveyor belts moving below the reels. Additionally, you'll notice two bumpers that resemble the flipper, reminiscent of arcade games of old.
Using a spin, one of those penguins will attempt to jump from the belt and escape, hopefully between the hole that the two belts create. Successfully escaping penguins award, you a Wild on a winning spin, or they create a winning combination on a losing spin.
The mode closes when there are no more wins to be made.
Stacked Emperor Wild
Regular Wilds appear on reels 2 and 4, the Stacked Emperor Wild will appear on the third reel during the Penguin Escape mode. Once this Wild appears, it guarantees players a win!
After each spin, the Stacked Wild will move down one reel position. Note though, your penguin friends will never attempt to escape when the Evil Emperor is present on the reels.
Although it lacks a free-spins feature present in other similar slot games, the Penguin City slot game is a win-all-ways slot offering an astronomical x1647 pay-out on your betting stakes. It's this generous pay-out that alone, should encourage bitcoin gamers to set their Antarctic cousins loose!
