Bear in mind that this is a high volatility pokie when getting started by selecting your bet. The betting range is from 0.20 coins to a maximum of 20 coins, with an option to select the Autoplay function that can set the game to up to 100 autospins. You can also explore Mystic Panther Treasures of the Wild for free in demo mode so you can figure out the gameplay.
Once you have selected your bet, meet the panther by pressing the spin button. You'll find yourself in a dense undergrowth of fun, surrounded by broad-leafed tropical plants and shafts of sunlight piercing the treetops. An African theme is in play, as you strive to collect at least two top premium symbols or three other symbols on adjacent reels from the left hand side across. Combine symbols across the reels to gain a chance to access the panther's treasure for yourself.
A popular genre in casino games, the African theme is epitomised in Mystic Panther Treasures of the Wild. Discover the lower value card royals from 10-A and then progress to the higher value symbols that really bring out the African forest flavour. Meerkats, zebra, elephants and African women award 5x-10x your wager for six of a kind. The scatter symbol is illustrated with a stupendous African mask that shimmers in gold, while the mystical panther himself is the wild symbol, taking the place of every other play symbol bar the scatter. Watch out for the African warrior's shield, as it holds the key to the magnificent Link&Win feature.
The Free Spins feature is a fun bonus round that kicks in when you land three gold masks on reels 1, 3 and 5. Do this, and you get 10 free spins and a 1x wager prize. When the fully stacked reels randomly go wild, you can retrigger the feature by landing three more scatters in Mystic Panther Treasures of the Wild
Fun as free spins can be, it’s really the Link&Win feature that drives this jungle pokie. This popular game mechanic provides the opportunity to win a Mini, Minor, Major or Mega jackpot valued at 10x, 25x, 500x and 5,000x your stake respectively. The trigger requirement is for at least six shields to fall into view on the reels at once. Once this occurs, the triggering symbols are locked in place like a shield wall. All other symbols are cleared from the grid and you obtain three respins, with each empty reel position spinning individually. Only shields or blanks can land in these spaces, with newly arriving shields also locking into place. The respins counter resets with every shield that lands. The Link&Win feature stops when respins are at an end or all positions are filled. Link&Win then awards you with the value of the prizes on the shields, from 1-5x your bet.
There’s more to it than that, though. Some of the shields will be Mini, Minor or Major jackpots symbols, awarding corresponding jackpot prizes. But that’s not all! If the reels are completely covered with shields, you’ll hit that 5,000x Mega Jackpot!
