Prized Panda

This is the latest game in Novomatic’s Pay Day Progressive series. This series of games features a top-box progressive ladder, and a simple progressive method that pays prizes that rise with the number of Pay Day symbols landing scattered on the screen.

Three or four of the scattered symbols return fixed jackpots, but five through 10 of the symbols return progressives with resets ranging from $25 for six symbols to $12,000 for 10 at maximum bet.

The jackpots are available at any bet; the reset amounts rise as the bet rises—the top jackpot with a 30-credit minimum bet is $1,200 rather than $12,000 with the 300-credit maximum bet.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot. Three, four or five “Scatter” symbols trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively, with all jackpots tripled. The free games can be retriggered within the bonus spins.
