Animals performing martial arts is something we’re familiar with in these days of high quality movie animation so it’s no surprise to see an online slot machine using the same premise; this is Paws of Fury, a release from Blueprint Gaming with multiple bonus features and the Jackpot King progressive jackpot.
Paws of Fury is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; a tidy gold frame borders those reels while a levitating panda observes the scene from the left hand side. Pink blossom occasionally floats across the vista and the whole thing is set inside an open-fronted wooden structure.
The high value symbols are a temple, the panda, the game’s logo, a bowl of Dim Sum and a purple book; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
A golden paw is the wild and it will substitute for all others to help form winning combos except for the close-up panda bonus symbol.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the panda bonus symbols anywhere in view and the first thing to do is spin the wheel which will determine one of the five following outcomes:
- Win Sum Dough – pick barrels from those on display to find three matching multiplier values; a special symbol will upgrade all multiplier values and finding three Golden Pandas will start the Big Money bonus (see below).
- Journey of the Panda – work you way along the trail by selecting lanterns which will advance you up to five places, take you to the Big Money bonus or end the round/collect your winnings.
- Rise of the Panda Free Spins – starting on the bottom reel set you must collect Yin Yang symbols to ascend to the next one, earning more spins as you do; the higher you get, the bigger the prizes.
- Panda Warrior Free Spins – awards free spins on a 5×4, 40 payline reel set and the aim is to collect special wild symbols; once the first set of spins have ended those collected wilds will be placed back on the reels for a set number of spins. After each spin you must pick one of four lanterns which will continue the spins with the wilds shuffled around or end the bonus.
- Enter The Panda Big Money Bonus – this is a picking round in which you must select flowers to earn cash until ‘Collect’ appears to end the fun.
There are five mini-features which can be randomly awarded on any spin:
- Pandamonium Wilds – the panda will kick wilds onto the reels of the current spin; he may also award another free spin with those wilds held in place.
- Belly Smash – the panda will at least one stack of wilds on the reels.
- Golden Super Spin – the panda will add mystery matching symbols to the reels for a better chance of a bigger win.
- Eye of the Panda – awards one respin with any winning symbols held in place; spins continue until there are no increased wins.
- Panda Mind Trick – more bonus symbols can be added to the reels.
Paws of Fury is part of Blueprint Gaming’s Jackpot King progressive jackpot series and the feature is triggered by landing five jackpot symbols on the reels. You’ll then play a reel set where the aim is to collect crowns before the round ends – manage at least 15 and you’ll get to spin the wheel of fortune which could win you the progressive jackpot.
Paws of Fury is an excellent slot with multiple bonus features and some very high quality graphics and animations from Blueprint; the oriental music sets the scene nicely, the progressive jackpot is always lurking temptingly in the background and there’s an RTP of 95.16%
