Panther’s Reign slot review (Quickspin)

So a new Quickspin release is always a reason for us to focus our eyes and ears. Especially because Quickspin has let go of the low variance slots strategy and now focuses more on slots that can make you some money. In theory, Panther’s Reign can yield more than 5,000 x the stake. 5,202 times, to be precise. However, this is the highest recorded prize in 1 billion simulation spins, done by Quickspin.

Panther’s Reign is a beautiful Quickspin video slot with a wild jungle theme and some exciting bonus features

Quickspin has a name to keep up with video slots that look great, with high-quality production values.

What that means in terms of your odds of a mega payout, time will have to tell.

Panther’s Reign gameplay and features

The Panther’s Reign video slot takes place in the jungle of the Amazon, where the most beautiful wild animals live. Apart from the Panther, Quickspin has chosen beautifully coloured parrots, frogs, monkeys and lynxes. The lynx is probably included to test your knowledge of what species inhabit the rainforest: right, no lynxes. But, anything is possible in an online game, shall we say?

The game has 50 fixed paylines, which are divided across 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols.

Bets are made within a betting range of 10 cents and  $€ 100 per spin.

The theoretical payout percentage is fine: 96.25%. The variance is high.

Symbols and payouts

The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatters and returns 80 x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind.

The black panther yields the same amount for five of the same on an active payline.

The other high symbols are worth between 12 x and 20 x the bet for five identical ones.

Then there are four low paying symbols: the card symbols hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs. These are worth a maximum of between 4 x and 8 x the total bet.

Wild Spray Bonus Feature

The Wild Spray Bonus may sound a bit disgusting, as if the panther is marking its territory. But don’t worry: you will profit handsomely with it.

Up to 10 wilds are placed at random spots on the reels.

The more wilds, the bigger the chance of an extra big paycheck.

Free spins bonus

Three or more scatters will get you into the free spins bonus round. With three scatters, you grab 5 free spins, and each additional scatter adds +1 free spin. The maximum number of free spins is 22. Serious rewards, wouldn’t you say?

During the free spins bonus, the re-spin feature is active.

With a winning combination, all winning symbols are retained, and you get, as icing on the cake, a free re-spin.

As long as new symbols match the same ones, this process repeats itself.

Ideally, you hit the respins combined with the Wild Spray feature, which drops a lot more frequently during the free spins than during the base game.

Our verdict on Panther’s Reign

Although Panther’s Reign looks stunning and the re-spins combined with the Wild Spray feature can skyrocket your payouts, we have some reservations.

As far as we are concerned, the slot lacks depth. Usually, a bonus feature is an absolute cherry on the cake, but it’s often over before it’s even started in this game.

We also feel the balance in the game is a bit shaky.

Too shaky for CasinoHipster’s top 10 Quickspin video slots list. Yes, you can win big, but your account balance can also evaporate at lightning speed.

As a player, you have to be able to handle that. It seems like everything is now all about chasing that one extraordinarily lucrative but quite elusive bonus round.

And if it doesn’t drop, there’s only the boulevard of broken dreams left and a hole in your wallet.

So if cats have your fancy, but you want a more balanced high variance slot game, by all means, have a look at Netent’s Serengeti Kings, too.

3.5 stars out of 5.
