The King Panda from Booming Games: Slot Review - Elvis with a furry twist!
Software developers are constantly looking at new ways to create slots that really draw players in. In some cases, popular game themes are sometimes mixed together to great effect. For example, software producer Play’n GO noticed that players really enjoy games set in Egypt and Leprechaun-based slots so they merged the two themes together to create the hugely popular Leprechaun goes Egypt slot. Booming Games decided to follow suit and create a slot that merges popular animal-based slots with the bright lights of Las Vegas. And what did they come with? A Panda dressed up in an Elvis Presley jumpsuit of course!
It is a 3 reel slot game with 1 payline and it includes 3 different bet levels.
The first thing to highlight about this game is that it features a very simple reel structure that consists of 3 reels and just 1 payline. This is a nice wink and nod to old-school slot machines of the past and it is refreshing to see in a modern online slot.
Another feature of this game is that the paytable is permanently displayed just above the reels. You will notice it contains 3 different coloured columns. These columns relate to betting on 1, 2, or 3 coins. Naturally, the more coins you bet then the greater the payout becomes.
There are no special symbols in this game or bonus features but make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the King Panda logo as if you land 3 of these symbols with a 3 coin bet then you’ll be awarded the top jackpot prize of 10,000 coins! It is also possible to land wins with any of the bar symbols.
Theme and Graphics
The presentation of the game is second to none as you might expect from stellar software developer Booming Games. The slot is set in the bright lights of Las Vegas with the King Panda standing to the left of the reels with microphone in hand and ready to bust out a few Elvis tunes no doubt! The symbols in the game consist of Bars, Microphones, Golden Records, Disco Balls, and of course King Panda himself. The animations are a delight as the symbols dart along the reels in frantic fashion and enlarge and flash brightly whenever you land a win along the reels.
The game features an upbeat Jazz-style soundtrack. It ties in well with the Vegas theme of the game.

Our Verdict on The King Panda
The King Panda is produced by software developer Booming Game and it is one of the strangest themes that I have ever come across but having said that, it is a really enjoyable slot to play. The game is very easy to play thanks to its simple 1 payline structure but it is a shame that it does not have any bonus features whatsoever. I found this game to be of medium variance, so wins come along quite frequently on the reels, just don’t expect to land a huge payout unless you have the time and money to place lots of big bets.
