The most iconic Multiway Xtra game in the world is undoubtedly Siberian Storm, but that game alone was so successful that it has spawned essentially an entire series of mobile slots behind it. One of the few follow-ups to make equally good use out of big cats is Prowling Panther, and there are no prizes for guessing which of the cats is the star of the show here based on the name alone. This is a good-looking game that crams in all of the action that players would expect from a Multiway Xtra slot and that alone should be a great reason to check out the full review below!
What to Expect
There is a chance that even if you are a big fan of IGT that you may not necessarily know what Multiway Xtra entails, so that is the perfect way to start our coverage. The board essentially rises and falls towards the centre of it, with three symbols in view at either end, four on the second and fourth reels and then five in the middle. It is pretty unique, although some other game makers have attempted to replicate it over the years, but the fact remains that it leads to one of the very best ways to sample and enjoy 720 ways to win on each and every spin. That means that the wins come thick and fast anyway, but they can be even faster and… thicker when you land the wild card. It only appears on the middle three reels but can do so in stacks and so cover them completely, and it will also apply a two times multiplier too.
It is also possible for any of the other symbols to appear multiple times on any given reel, and the way Multiway Xtra works is that each appearance of a symbol on a reel before completing a winning combination will essentially lead to a decent boost on the back of the way that the symbols multiply each other. Believe us when we say that it is something that is easier to see for yourself than to explain, but after a few spins you are sure to have the hang of it overall!
A golden panther symbol on each reel at the same time will lead to the main bonus round on Prowling Panther, which involves the award of an initial eight spins but this number can rise all the way to 96 in total with retriggers. There are more stacked wilds on the board as part of this process and that means that the majority of the winning potential is here – which is something that we definitely like to see!
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Prowling Panther is never likely to become as iconic as Siberian Storm, not least because that game came first and already has a lot of the Multiway Xtra audience locked up. However, if you are in to this kind of game and want something different to the norm, there is absolutely no reason not to give this one a chance. It looks good and plays exactly as we would hope, and that definitely sounds like a good mix of action to us!
