Pink Panther Slot
The Pink Panther online slot is a 5-reel, 40 pay line slot game from Playtech. The star of the game is the purrfectly prim and proper panther with a liking for the colour pink. The Pink Panther began life as a cartoon intro to the 1963 film of the same name, starring Peter Sellers as the bumbling French detective Inspector Clouseau. The pink-loving pussy was eventually given his own cartoon show, which ran in various formats between 1969 and 2010. Originally, 'The Pink Panther' was the name of a large diamond, which was stolen in the 1963 movie.
The symbols used in this slot are playing card values ten to ace, and characters from the cartoon series including the Pink Panther and Inspector Clouseau. You play by selecting your coin value, your number of spins, your line bet, and the number of lines you want in play. Your total bet is all these values multiplied. To win a cash prize, you need to land at least two identical symbols on a pay line in sequence from the left hand reel.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts range from three time from your bet-per-line for two 'Little Man' symbols, up to 5,000x if you see pink (as in panther) five times. The 'Pink Panther' logo symbol acts as the 'scatter' symbol, and at least three of them anywhere on the reels wins a cash payout.
- There are five mini bonus games, each of which are triggered randomly:
- Pink Pow! – The Pink Panther will randomly destroy between 2 and 6 symbols, turning them into wilds.
- Crack the Pink Code – Pick from ten safes, in each of which is hidden a number of free games. You keep picking until you find the safe containing a stick of dynamite.
- The Color Pink Bonus – The Pink Panther and The Little Man paint blue and pink numbers on a wall. You win the sum of the pink numbers multiplied by your bet.
- The Pink Trail Bonus – The Inspector will follow footprints for four rounds as he attempts to recover a diamond. Each footprint hides a cash prize, but some contain traps that will half your winnings.
- Wheel of Pink Bonus – Spin the wheel to obtain a prize multiplier. You keep spinning until the inner wheel lands on 'collect'.
There are also two 'mystery' progressive jackpots – 'Major Pink' and 'Minor Pink'. To win, them play 'The Jackpot Adventure' in which you open a number of doors. Uncover five Pink Panthers to win the big jackpot, four Inspectors for the smaller jackpot, and three Little Men for the consolation prize.
The Pink Panther slot is a lot of fun – as much fun as the original cartoons and the film (and not the terrible Steve Martin remake). The bonus games are enjoyable, although it would make things more exciting if the games were linked to objectives instead of just being random. Give the Pink Panther slot a try, and if you win a jackpot you'll definitely be 'in the pink'!
