The game loads really fast even when playing on a low Internet bandwidth. The graphics are truly 3D and the sounds and music are very crisp.
The Shadow of the Panther tells the story of a man who is part human, part beast. Just like all panthers, the human-beast only occasionally emerges from the darkness, but you can always feel his presence lurking in the shadows. This fascinating character has lived amongst dangerous and scary animals for so long that he even speaks their language. His story will most likely remind you of other TV characters like Mowgli of the Jungle Book and Tarzan who grew up among the apes and behaves just like them. To add to its beauty, Shadow of the Panther slot game comes with Super Stacks and Split symbols. The game appears to be set deep inside the jungle where everything is dark and scary. On the reels is where all the action takes place and you will encounter Panthers, Tigers, a variety of Gems, the Human-Beast, Shadow of the Panther Logos, and the poker card values that run from Ace through to 10.
Shadow of the Panther Logo is a wild symbol and it substitutes all other symbols on the reels to form winning combinations apart from the Human-Beast, which is the scatter symbol. The wild also counts as 2 symbols when it substitutes the Tiger or the Panther to form winning combinations. The scatter symbol is your key to the Free Spins, so you better watch out for them.
The game also boasts a Super Stacks feature. All symbols have an ability to transform into stacked symbols and this obviously means you can now form more winning combinations. Like most games, there isn’t a slot machine strategy that you can use to increase your chances of winning, which is why these types of features are important to look for when you’re searching for a fun and exciting game to play.
Another interesting feature is the presence of Split symbols that count as 2 symbols whenever they are show up on the reels. This also means that 5 Split symbols in a line count as 10 symbols. This means more cash and more possibilities of forming winning combinations.
Five or more Human-Beasts trigger the Free Spins bonus. Remember, Split symbols count as 2 symbols. The Human-Beast symbols will also only appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. The number of Human-Beast symbol you have on the reels will also determine the number of free spins that you are awarded. For instance, 5 Human-Beast symbols will see you get 5 Free Spins, 6 will get you 7 Free Spins, 7 scatters will get you 10 free spins, while 8 scatters will get you 15 free spins. All free spins run automatically and are played at the same lines and bets as the triggering spin. You cannot however retrigger more free games during this bonus round. Different reels are used during this free games mode.
This is a great game for newbies and all slot players on a low budget because you can play all 30 lines for as low as 3 coins. The slot machine coin values for this game run from 0.01 to 0.10. The Shadow of the Panther Logo is the highest paying symbol as 5 in a line will see you awarded with 1,000 coins. Line wins are multiplied by credit bets per line. To be awarded a line win, winning symbols must run from the leftmost reel, except of course for scatters.
The graphics and gameplay are quite interesting. However, the coin values are a bit limiting for high-rollers. This is definitely an okay game for new slot player on a low budget. The presence of Split and Stacked symbols makes for interesting play too. For more adventure-filled games you need to try out Valkyrie Queen and Dangerous Beauty, all by High 5.
