Penguin Palooza Slots
It's all happening in the Penguin Palooza slot game, isn't it? If you're keen on animal-themed slot games, you'll want to check out this game in more detail. What's a palooza, anyway? Whether we find out or not, we've got lots of facts lined up for you here.
Who came up with this palooza of a game?
The answer is at the foot of the paytable, given with the copyright notice as Spin Logic Gaming.
Has the developer added a demo version to check out first?
If you've played other games from the same source, you might already know the answer. It does indeed have a practice version to try, and they've added a large demo balance to it to use when testing the game.
What's the theme?
Penguins, obviously, but there are icy surroundings in the game as well. It's not really a festive slot, but you will see the occasional penguin in a fetching hat with snowflakes falling all around. We guess it is more a winter slot than anything else.
Penguin Palooza has a fine design
If you look closely, you might spot a couple of penguins wandering around in the background. It all looks very chilly, so much so that we were glad we had several layers on when we checked it out.
How to begin playing the Penguin Palooza slot game
Expect the usual 5 x 3 game in action here, although you won't need to look around for any progressive jackpots.
The wild symbol is a wispy thing, with the word itself in pink against a backdrop that could be a colored cube of ice. It's hard to tell, but the most important thing is that it replaces everything apart from two other symbols. These are the scatters - a regular one and a locking one. The regular scatter only lands on the middle three reels, while the locking one can appear on reels one through four.
It's easy to see how many paylines there are in this one
The game provides a message to the left of the reels that says '25 paylines' - so there's your answer. We can also add that they're fixed.
How much does it cost to play the Penguin Palooza game?
The cheapest bet is a quarter, but if you tend to play more, you can go through the other values to see if anything else suits you better. The biggest bet per spin is $25.
The info logo leads to the paytable
Look at the far left of the control panel to see it there. You'll recognize this if you've ever played any other slots from this developer.
Bonus feature triggered by the locking scatters
If you get two or more of the locking scatter symbols landing on the reels, going from the first reel across to the right with no gaps, you'll play the Locking Scatter Respin. This means you may have scatters on two, three, or four reels. Each outcome results in either one, two, or three respins of the remaining reels to see whether you can get an improved scatter prize. If you find five locking scatters, any remaining respins you might have will be forfeited and you'll receive your prize.
Free spins come from the other scatter
You need to land three scatters on the same line on the middle three reels to earn 10 free games. You can retrigger them in the same manner. Another perk is that each free game brings you a multiplier of between 2x and 5x. Any prizes won on a spin will receive the displayed multiplier.
RTP information for Penguin Palooza
As usual, no details of this nature are inside the paytable. It seems that different casinos can choose the RTP value to use, so you should check on that before you play.

Which symbols pay the best?
There are four penguins acting as main symbols, and the best one of those is dressed for, well… skiing, possibly! That one will bring in 1,000x your bet if you get five on a line.
Demo play will help you work out whether you like the game
The game has much to offer, but the only way to know for sure what you think about it is to try it. Fortunately, the demo allows you to check it out safely.
