‘Penguin City’ Online Slot Review – Yggdrasil has some good releases for 2018 including ‘Tuts twister’ which isn’t the best slot from the provider but it isn’t bad. It has unique gameplay and can payout very well.  The provider is mainly known for their biggest hit slots such as ‘Casino Zeppelin’ and ‘Lucha Maniacs’.  Their newest release is set to be launched on all sites 24th July. The slot is called ‘Penguin City’ which is very different from Yggdrasil.

The slot is a 5 reel by 3 rows which is normal for most slots. The theme is very unique, it is set in a Chinese restaurant, there are 3 penguins who I believe are forced to do all the dirty work like all the cleaning and more boring tasks in the job.  The head chef is the one responsible for making their jobs miserable. They are planning to escape from the restaurant as you will see in some features. The art design of the slot is very well done, the background is animated with bugs crawling around and the penguins showing an appearance.


There are 9 regular symbols, the lower tier symbols are wooden card background ones like hearts and jacks etc. Higher tier symbols are food related symbols like a stew pot, noodle box etc and have a coloured background. The highest symbol is the noodle box. There is a wild symbol and emperor penguin symbol.

 Emperor penguin appears on the third reel in the escape mode. The Penguins will not jump on the reels in the mode if the emperor wild is present. The wild is a walking wild . after every spin, the wild will go down a symbol until it disappears. The wild is 3 symbols down so will stay on reels for 3 spins. You get a guaranteed win when any of him is present so even when only one of his wild is present.

Penguin escape mode

There are no free spins in this slot but there is a ‘Penguin escape feature’.  If a wild symbol appears on either reel 2 or 4 on a winning spin this will activate the penguin escape mode. Wilds will stay on reels as a sticky wild until a non-winning spin.  Spins will retrigger after every win.  Penguins will try to escape if the emperor penguin is not on reels. The Penguins will jump on reels and 1 sticky wild will be added on either reel 2 or 4. or when a penguin jumps on the reels 1 symbol is swapped on reel 3 to create a win on losing spins so you can keep getting respins with the sticky wilds active.

Overall I like the theme and artwork for this slot. The slot is very unique and doesn’t remind me of any others. I don’t like the fact there aren’t free spins as I feel the penguin scape mode can be a dud a lot of the time but if you can get a decent amount of wilds with respins it could pay. The base game is very simple and pays alright. Low to medium Volatility slot.

Gameplay- 4.5/5

Volatility- 3/5
