Game Rules

Pink Panther

5-Reel, 40-Line SlotProgressive Jackpot

5 Reel 40 Line Slots

The aim of the main game in Pink Panther online slot is to spin the reels and match symbols consecutively on one of the 40 paylines.  If you like online blackjack, roulette and big-paying slots, Pink Panther is the game for you!

To Play the Game:

  • Start by selecting your coin value using the Click to Change button on the left-hand side of the screen.
  • Next, choose how many coins you wish to bet on each payline. Select the Bet per Line button on the bottom centre of the screen, each time you click on the button another coin will be added to the Line Bet.
  • After that, choose how many paylines you wish to play for each spin, between 1 and 40. Do this by pressing the Lines button on the bottom of the screen. Each time you press the Lines button another payline will be added to the reels. Pressing the Lines button will also show the position of paylines on the reels. You can also select the number of lines by selecting one of the numbers from the sides of the reels.  Please note, if you select a number it will also activate all the paylines numerically below it, i.e. selecting 30 activates lines 1 – 29 as well.
  • When you have chosen your bets and lines press the Spin button – on the bottom right of the screen – to spin the reels and start the Pink Panther slot. You can also spin the reels by pressing Bet Max. This will automatically spin the reels at the maximum number (40) of lines at your selected bet.
  • The amount deducted from your balance for each spin is called the Total Bet. This is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Lines.
  • When the reels are spinning you can speed up the process by pressing Stop, which will replace the Spin button temporarily.
  • You can also spin the reels by using the Auto Start Feature. This will allow you to set a predetermined number of spins (1-99) to be played through consecutively. Use the +/- buttons to set the number of Auto Start spins you wish to play, then press Auto Start and the spins will start playing through. You can stop the Auto Start Feature at any time by pressing Stop, which will replace the Auto Start button when the feature is activated.
  • When the reels have come to rest after a spin any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted. The winning combinations are all displayed in the Paytable. For a Line Win (matching symbols on a payline) the award is calculated by the value in the Paytable x the Line Bet. A Scatter Win is x the Total Bet. To access the Paytable select the Info button from the bottom left of the screen.
  • Multiple wins can occur in a single spin although they must be on different paylines or with Scatter Wins. If two wins occur on the same payline you will only be paid for the highest win.
  • In the case of winning spin, the amount awarded to you will be displayed in a box on the right-hand side of the screen (above the Spin button).
  • When you land a winning spin you will be given the option to use the Gamble Feature. This will be explained in greater detail below.

Info Page:

Selecting the Info button will open up informational pages that will include the Paytable. You can navigate through the Info Pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To exit and return to the main game select the Back button from the bottom left of the page. The Info Pages are:

  • The Paytable Page – this will display all the winning symbol combinations and their values, as well as some information on the Bonus Features. If you load the Paytable after a winning spin, the winning combination(s) will flash on the Paytable screen. You can also use the Paytable to view a graphic of the paylines as they appear on the reels. Select the Show Paylines button from the bottom centre of the screen to load this graphic.
  • The Pink Pow Page – describes the features of the Pink Pow Bonus.
  • The Crack the Pink Code Page – describes the Crack the Pink Code Bonus, how it is activated and awarded etc.
  • The Colour Pink Bonus Page – describes the features of the Colour Pink Bonus award.
  • The Wheel of Pink Bonus Page – describes the features of the Wheel of Pink Bonus.
  • The Pink Trail Bonus Page – describes the features of the Pink Trail Bonus.
  • The Jackpot Adventure Page – describes the Progressive Jackpot Bonus game, how it is awarded etc.
  • The Gamble Feature Page – describes the features of the Gamble Feature.

Paylines:

  • Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must take across the reels in order to make a Line Win.
  • You can view the Paylines and their shapes by actively pressing the Lines button, or by loading the graphic from the Paytable screen.
  • A Line Win must start from reel 1 in an unbroken chain of at least two symbols on an active payline.
  • In the case of coinciding wins on the same payline (involving Wild Symbols) you will be paid for whichever win has the highest value.

About Payouts:

  • All payouts for Line and Scatter Wins are displayed in the Paytable. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the value in the Paytable by the Line Bet. Multiple wins can occur – these are added together and paid as a Total Win. Only the highest win is paid on a single payline.
  • For a Line Win, the matching symbols must begin on reel 1 with no exceptions. Scatter Wins do not need to be on any payline or particular reels. Scatter Wins will be discussed in greater detail below.

Wild Symbol:  

The Wild Symbol – represented by the Pink Panther Character Symbol – can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter Symbols) to help form winning combinations. There is also a payout for matching two or more Wild Symbols consecutively (like a regular Line Win), if this coincides with another win on the same payline (involving the Wild Symbols) you will be paid for whichever combination has the highest value.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Pink Panther Logo Symbol – does not need to be on a payline to be considered active. If you land three or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will win a cash amount. The Scatter Win values are displayed in the Paytable and are calculated by multiplying by the Total Bet.

Bonus Games:

All Bonus Features and the Jackpot Feature are randomly triggered in the base game; you do not need to land a particular symbol combination to activate them. When a Bonus is awarded a sign will drop down on the reels and you will be prompted to Start Bonus. You will be taken to a new screen where your Bonus Feature will be revealed.

The Bonus Games are:

Wheel of Pink Bonus:

You are taken to a new screen with a spinning wheel. The wheel is two-tiered with the top segments numbered with bet multipliers and the bottom segments reading Collect or Respin. The Pink Panther will spin the wheel, whichever segment (it is numbered 1-9) the pointer lands on in the top part of the wheel will be multiplied by the Total Bet.  If the pointer on the bottom wheel lands on Respin you will be awarded the bet multiplier as well as another spin. Landing on Collect awards the bet multiplier and ends the Wheel of Pink Bonus.  You will be prompted to press Continue to return to the game reels.

The Colour Pink Bonus:

You are taken to new screen, where the Pink Panther and the Little Man pain numbers on a fence. The Pink Panther will paint pink numbers, whereas the Little Man will paint blue numbers. When the painting has finished the pink numbers are added up and multiplied by the Total Bet, at this point you will be offered the option to Collect or Repaint. Collect will award the cash amount and end the Colour Pink Bonus. Choosing Repaint discards the win and lets you try again to hopefully get a higher amount of pink numbers. You can ‘paint’ three times, with the third round award being automatically collected.  When the Bonus has ended you will be prompted to press Continue to return to the game reels.

Pink Trail Bonus:

You will be taken to a new screen where you will help Inspector Clouseau find the Pink Panther Diamond. Inspector Clouseau will follow footsteps, each of which increases the bet multiplier prize. After each round you will be given the option to Collect or Continue. If you Collect the Pink Trail Bonus ends and you will be awarded the current bet multiplier. If you choose Continue you can potentially increase the bet multiplier but risk uncovering a trap that halves your winnings. If you find the Diamond the Total Win will be doubled. When the Bonus has ended you will be prompted to press Continue to return to the game reels.

Crack the Pink Code Bonus and Free Games:

You will be taken to a new screen where the Pink Panther will open up various safes. During the Bonus:

  • Each safe that the Pink Panther opens will contain either a number of Free Games, an Expanding Wild (which will fill reel 3 during the Free Games), a Multiplier for the Free Games (only one of either the Multiplier or Expanding Wild can be won).
  • One safe contains dynamite, when this is opened you will be awarded 2 extra Free Games (added to your accumulative total) and the Free Games Bonus will begin.

During the Free Games Bonus:

  • The reels are spun automatically. A Free Games Counter will show the spins remaining.
  • All bets and lines are the same as the triggering spin. This cannot be adjusted.
  • If won in the Safe Bonus, the Multiplier will multiply all wins in Free Games by that value.
  • If won in the Safe Bonus, the Expanding Wild will be on reel 3 for each spin, and expand to cover the entire reel when a win occurs.
  • The Total Win for Free Games will be displayed in a box as the Bonus progresses.
  • The Bonus Features (including the Jackpot Adventure Bonus) are not active during Free Games. Free Games cannot be retriggered.
  • When all spins have been played through, you will be shown your Total Win and prompted to press Continue to return to the main reels.

The Pink Pow Feature:

After any spin, the Pink Panther can randomly ‘blow up’ between 2 and 6 symbols on the reels, changing them to Wild Symbols. Scatter Wins are calculated beforehand, thus if Scatter Symbols are turned Wild you will be paid for both wins.

The Jackpot Adventure:

Just as with the Bonus Games, the Jackpot Adventure is awarded randomly. However, the higher the bet made increases the chances of landing the Jackpot Adventure award. In the Jackpot Adventure:

  • You are guaranteed one of three prizes: the Major Jackpot, the Minor Jackpot or the Consolation Prize.
  • In the Jackpot Adventure you are taken to a new screen and faced with 12 Doors. Opening a Door will reveal one of the game characters: Pink Panther, Inspector Clouseau or the Little Man.  If you open 5 Pink Panther Doors you will win the Major Progressive Jackpot. If you open 4 Inspector Clouseau Doors you will win the Minor Progressive Jackpot. If you open 3 Little Man Doors you will win the Consolation Prize (a fixed amount).
  • The Jackpot Adventure has a timer function, if you do not open the doors in a set time they will be automatically opened and your prize revealed.

The Progressive Jackpot is awarded and funded as follows:

Seed (base amount for Jackpot) - $1000 Major, $100 Minor, $80 Consolation Prize.

Contribution Rate (percentage taken from each wager to fund Jackpot) – 1.4%

Win Condition (how to win Jackpot) – Reveal 5 Pink Panther characters.

Win requirements (how to be eligible for Jackpot) – no special requirements, simply play the Pink Panther Slot.

Please Note: Jackpot award will be paid in GBP or your equivalent local currency.

Gamble:

After any winning spin the Gamble button, located next to the Spin button, will flash. Select this if you want to try to increase your winnings. If you select the Gamble button:

  • You will be taken to a new screen, where you will be faced with 5 playing cards face down.
  • The leftmost card is the Dealer’s card. The aim of the game is to choose a card with a higher value than the Dealer’s.
  • Before the Dealer reveals their card you will have 3 options: Collect, Double or Double Half.
  • Collect will end the Gamble feature and award your winnings.
  • Double (or Double half) will start the Gamble Feature and the Dealer will reveal their card.
  • A correct guess will double your winnings and you will have the option to Collect or Double again.
  • An incorrect guess will forfeit the winnings and return you to the main game.
  • Revealing the same card as the Dealer (Push) will result in a tie. Your winnings will be returned to you and you will be given the option to Collect or try again.
  • Choosing Double Half will safeguard half your winnings and allow you to play the Gamble Feature with the remainder.
  • You can keep doubling until you Collect, guess incorrectly or reach the Double Limit. More information can be found in the Gamble Info Page.

Please Note: the Gamble Feature is not available when the game is in Auto Start Mode or during Free Games.
