iSoftBet Reaches Enlightenment with The Dalai Panda Slot
Enlightenment is hard to come by for the vast majority of us, due to the natural stresses that reside in the world – from work to relationships to money woes, there’s a number of hurdles blocking us from reaching that ultimate goal. Fortunately for those of us who never come close to such serenity, iSoftBet has created a wonderfully tranquil game for us to immerse ourselves in. It’s called The Dalai Panda slot.
Renowned as an international supplier of casino games, iSoftBet has a long legacy of developing impressive iGaming content that wins the masses over, with The Dalai Panda being no exception. Bursting with tangible colours, oasis green backdrops, and a cuddly and wise panda, this title has a lot to offer, and that’s before we even touch on the gameplay! Sporting ways to play instead of winlines, this 6 reels pokie is an extravaganza of variance.
When asked to discuss the creativity of the game, and how it’ll appeal to its users, Michael Probert, chief commercial officer at iSoftBet, had this to offer:
“The Dalai Panda is one of our most innovative developments to date, and offers a unique and highly enjoyable experience. Focusing our game around the wisdom of the Dalai Panda, and having a title character that actively helps players along their user journey, we are sure that this will be one of our biggest hits.”
Putting aside the graphics for the moment, we look to the paytable and its symbols to see what exactly is on offer: The Dalai Panda delivers 11 symbols, with two of these being vital to scoring bonus gameplay. After that, there’s five high value icons that’ll bag you larger amounts of cash, followed by the lower value symbols decorated as card suits; if you’re a regular slot machine player, this format will be familiar to you.
Despite the predictability of the paytable however, we find that the potential payouts are considerable, with even the lower value A symbol being worth up to 100 credits. Of course, for more magical, perhaps so would say even enlightening, returns, you’ll want to bag yourself the vibrant symbols of the money, turtle, birds, koi carps, and the phoenix. Moreover, if you’re looking to get the most out of this title, then the yin and yang bonus tile is arguably how you best do that.
The main bonus to score on this quest of serenity are the free spins we mentioned earlier, with the number of games you’re awarded determined by how many of them are collected by the free spins bank. The starting amount is five spins, but that can be added to throughout the base game, with three bonus icons then activating the bonus round.
Not only will this round save you money, and deliver more cash, but our trusty panda friend can add wilds to the grid that can extend across the reels, as well as helping extra spins to be won. If you desire more free gaming, you’ll need to land at least two bonus symbols to get those additional games. Bag yourself six more symbols and 50 extra waves can be yours to savour.
As far as contemporary one armed bandits go, this newcomer from iSoftBet is simply beautiful to look at, with its oriental theme helping to widen its appeal to the masses. That being said, while this is an aesthetically pleasing slot, it isn’t one that introduces us to anything we haven’t seen before.
Even though this is the case, the way the reels have been designed, as well as the combined ways to play, ensure that the variance of this title feels greater than what it is. What is more, the volatility seems to have been kept rather low, thus ensuring that wins can and will be made regularly throughout a playthrough.
