Quite a few video slot titles that take place in the Poles, the icy landscapes being an obvious source of inspiration for many developers. Penguin Style is one of those games, but instead of emphasizing the harsh and icy polar environment, this EGT game focuses on the cutest dwellers of the ice kingdom.
And there will not be only penguins on stage this time around, they will be joined by several other adorable creatures who will join forces to make sure that you will leave significantly wealthier than when you first arrived.
So without further ado, let’s review what this mobile slot has in store for us…
We all came in for the Penguins, not for the landscapes. If that is what you are thinking, well then you will not be disappointed.
Penguin Style has virtually no background or external universe to talk about. The only feature appearing behind the reels is a thick wall of ice, with a few cracks here and there.
A simple but efficient setup, which lets players focus on the reels and the symbols spinning on it. You will also notice the joyful melodies triggered after each win; they are somehow reminiscent of circus music. But besides this, there really is not much to describe in terms of the game’s general aesthetics. Let’s just move on to how it is played…
Penguin Style helps you cut right to the chase with its very simple gameplay. There are five reels, across which 20 fixed paylines are drawn and cannot be selected. This simply means that every bet that you make will automatically be split on all the 20 paylines. Which leaves you with only one real option: choosing the actual amount of your wager, between 20, 40, 100, 200 and 400 coins in total. You can do so easily by using the five shortcuts at the bottom of the game screen.
Keep in mind that each win can be doubled, or more, by using the optional Gamble feature. Guess correctly the colour of a hidden card to do so, but remember that a single mistake will terminate the game and take away all your new coins! If you would rather enjoy an uninterrupted game, click the orange button on the left hand side to start the Autoplay mode for as many spins in a row as you wish.
One final gameplay feature is the Penguin Style progressive jackpot. You can check its value in the four rolling counters at the top of the screen. The Jackpot Cards Bonus game can be randomly triggered after each win, taking you to a separate screen where your task is to flip over as many facedown cards as it takes until you find three of the same suit. The corresponding jackpot will then simply move from the top counter right into your own pocket. Simple as that!
The thermometer has hit below zero temperatures on the paytable as well, since all symbols are at least partially covered in either ice or snow.
Even the classic Jack, Queen, King and Ace appear like colourful ice cubes floating on the reels. They are worth less than the rest of the menu, but longer combinations can still earn you 100 times your original bet.
The upper half of the list is more interesting, starting with a Shrimp in snorkelling gear riding a bubble and a Squid wearing a diving mask and in the process on cleaning the ocean floor of unwelcome waste. Two different Penguins follow – one skiing and the other playing with a goldfish in a bowl. The most valuable of all basic symbols is a mighty Killer Whale with a rescue buoy around its dorsal fin.
The king of the reels is definitely the Penguin in a Hat, also acting as a Wild card. It can replace any of the previously listed symbols, and can appear stacked over the whole reel, which can lead to a lot of extra combinations triggered at once!
Finally, Igloo icon is the Scatter of Penguin Style. It can only appear on the 3rd reel and triggers three Free Spins immediately – even with only one Igloo present! At the beginning of the Free Spins, each Igloo expands to its left and right and turns into a Penguin Wild. These Wilds will stay in place for the whole duration of the free games.
Penguin Style has many qualities that will make it popular amongst many players, especially the relatively easy to trigger Free Spins.
The lack of freedom in the gameplay might scare some away, but no many will be able to resist those adorable polar creatures and an animal themed slot always finds fans!
