New Quickspin Online Slot Game: Panther’s Reign
The latest online slot game offering for Aussie players from Quickspin is a colorful ride through the jungle along with the king of it – the panther. The Amazon is the Panther’s Reign.
The Amazon, a pure look into nature, with its exotic birds and thick forest and, of course, the river itself is the backdrop for an exciting new slot game. And the elusive panther is at the center of it all.
The setting is a beautiful waterfall with its blue water splashing into the river, all surrounded by lush greenery and a rocky cliff. Large palm-like leaves sway in the breeze from the falls. A very soothing soundtrack plays in the background, highlighted by the sounds of various birds and crickets.
This five-reel game has four rows. Quickspin officially released it on March 10, 2020. The RTP (return-to-player) is 96.25%, as it is a high-variance slot.

Panther’s Reign Gameplay and Features
There are several features to spice up the action on Panther’s Reign.
One is the scatter symbol that delivers free spins. Three or more scatters, which look to be images of some kind of green gem, trigger five free spins. Every additional scatter symbol awards an extra spin. The maximum number of spins that can be won is 22.
As the bonus round begins, the day turns to night, and a storm rages behind the reels. The panther looms.
During the bonus round when free spins are running, players can look for any winning combination to trigger a respin. All of the symbols included in all winning lines will lock into position, as will any new symbols that extend those winning lines. Respins stop when no more symbols add to the winning lines. The player then receives his or her total win from that series of spins.
As for wilds, the gold symbols with panther paw scratches can substitute for any symbols except the scatters.
Wilds, then, can lead to the Wild Spray feature. This is triggered randomly, and players know it is happening when the sunlight shows through the trees and the reels spin very quickly for a longer time than usual. It can happen during base gameplay or during the bonus round. In the base game, up to 10 wild symbols may appear. During free spins, it can be up to seven wilds at the beginning of a new spin.
Special Notes about Panther’s Reign
The background music is really just a calming string of sounds put together with birds and other sounds of the forest. It is quite soothing and relaxing. The color scheme is also lovely, not overwhelming.
This really is a high volatility game. Big wins can be sparse at times. However, the random wild sprays and the respins during the bonus round can accumulate winnings to make up for some of that slow time.
The focus on the panther instead of the traditional lion in such games was a refreshing change. With that said, the panther only appears in the very beginning and on some symbols. Any hope that he will appear during the free spins or peeks out from behind the reels will go unfulfilled.
Don’t forget that the turbo button to make the reels spin faster and the auto-spin function are available. This allows you to enjoy the scenery and sounds of the game while sitting back to watch it play out.
