If you love small, furry critters then this might just be the game for you. I mean who doesn’t love penguins? This game has got enough to warrant your very own Arctic expedition.

This bunch of Penguins are trapped in an evil emperor’s food emporium. Working long hours for little to no pay, it is no surprise this bunch wants out. This is a cool theme and helping these cute birds escape adds a real element to what’s already an enjoyable slot experience.

Penguin City Slot Game Bonus Features
The regular wild symbol can appear on only reels 2 and 4, this can be substituted for all the symbols in the game. Wilds that then are part of a ‘win’ become a sticky wild for the next spin. Win on any of these wilds to trigger the Penguin Escape mode.
The Penguin Escape mode is a different set of reels with a set of penguins on the left hand side, with conveyor belts moving below the reels and two bumpers, like flippers from old arcade games. During a spin the penguins will jump and try to escape, if this fails he will drop into the hole the two belts create. A perfect escape from one of the penguins will award a ‘Wild’’ on winning spins or create winning combos on a losing spin. Once there are none left the feature will end. The stacked emperor wild appears on the third reel in Penguin Escape mode and guarantees a win. The stacked wild will then move down by one reel position each spin.
