Inspired by an employee’s comic strip art, Penguin City is the latest slot release from Yggdrasil Gaming.
July 24, 2018.
“Yggdrasil is inviting players to help free the friendly penguins from the clutches of the evil Emperor in its latest fun-filled slot game Penguin City.”
This new slot invites players to the world of Penguin City, where the dastardly Emperor Penguin is keeping his underlings as slaves in his fiendish food emporium.
The game’s main feature is the Penguin Escape Mode, which occurs when a Wild appears on the second or fourth reel on a winning spin. This Wild remains for the entirety of the Escape mode, which respins until a winless spin.
While in Escape mode, penguins can gift players additional Sticky Wilds on the second and fourth reels, as well as the possibility of a winning symbol on the third reel. Players can also hit an Emperor Stacked Wild, which guarantees wins on every spin until the emperor has left the reels.
As soon as Penguin Escape Mode is activated, one penguin will make his bid for freedom on each spin until players hits a winless spin.
“Penguin City has been a great opportunity for our development team to produce a really fun, light-hearted game packed full of features and a rich user experience. We had great fun creating it, and we are sure the players will have fun playing it, as in addition to the quirky characters and relaxed atmosphere we’ve also created a game mechanic perfect for more casual players – a low variance game that that can also pay out big wins, if the sticky wilds land right and take you on a long winning streak!” – Jonas Strandman, head of slots at Yggdrasil.
“We had a concept artist who owns his own comic strip and I started to recognise the characters in the game as resembling those in the comic book. So we acknowledged that this comic strip – which is called Pigeon City – is the inspiration for this new slot, Penguin City. So now we are doing it as an homage,” – Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO, Yggdrasil – speaking exclusively to CasinoBeats in May.
