- A brilliant slot with a slightly darker panda theme
- Wild multipliers can combine for huge wins
- Two main bonuses, one with sticky wilds
Eye of the Panda slot is a new one from Hacksaw Gaming and it comes with several features including ‘super’ cascades, wild multipliers and of course, free spins. The panda theme is cool, taking a usually cuddly and cute animal and giving it a bit of a meaner look and a dark design overall. There are 5 reels to play on with 5 rows each, giving you a total of 27 pay lines. Just aim for a winning combination from left to right using the following base symbols, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack, Queen, King or Ace
- Ice Cream

Eye of the Panda Slot Bonuses and Features
Super Cascades. We all know how normal cascades work, removing winning symbols from the reels to allow new ones to fall in from above and potentially trigger a chain reaction until there are no more wins. Well, Eye of the Panda slot have made this much easier, as now not only do winning symbols get removed, but all matching symbols on the screen are removed too!
Wild Panda Multiplier. The panda symbol in this game is wild, substituting for other base symbols in a winning combination. However, they can also land with multipliers up to 10x. Multipliers are applied to any win they are part of, and if more than one of them are part of a win, the multipliers will multiply together, not just add, before being applied. Multiplier wilds are also persistent in a round until they are part of a win, and it’s then removed afterward.
Never Say No To Panda! Bonus. To trigger this you need 3 scatter symbols on the same spin, giving you 10 free spins. Here, when a panda isn’t part of a win, it’s saved in one of the collector spaces. If there are no import spaces left, it isn’t saved. Now, when you get a win with at least 1 winning payline, pandas will jump down to apply their multipliers to any wins they are part of. This can create new wins as they are wilds, and these will also have a multiplier applied to them.
Jumping Panda Bonus. If you land 4 scatters instead of 3, this bonus is triggered instead with 10 free spins. It plays out in the same way as the other bonus, only the first 5 wild panda multipliers will become sticky when they land, staying in place for the whole bonus. They move position on each spin and change multiplier values too.
Eye of the Panda slot from Hacksaw Gaming is an impressive game by all accounts, with a neat design and enjoyable features. First of all, there are the super cascades which are pretty effective and I’m surprised this hasn’t been done more often. There are 2 main bonuses, both are good but having the sticky wilds is naturally much more rewarding, but it won’t trigger that often as you might expect. Overall, I think they’ve done a great job and I can easily recommend this game.
