Released back in 2007 on the Spin Palace online casino, Path of the Penguin is a 25 payline pokie from Microgaming, based around some feisty penguins and set in their arctic habitat.
The graphics are not the best on Path of the Penguin, and we’re not really sure what sort of story the pokie is trying to tell. Whatever it is, it doesn’t come across coherently and very little of Path of the Penguin makes sense. Add to this some very simple graphics and a bland backdrop, and you have a pokie that is uninspiring to say the least.
The warrior penguin is the highest paying symbol, and it is also the wild. If you land five of these on a single payline then you’ll be in for a payday of 6,000 coins, whereas 4 of them will get you a total of 2,000. Other high paying symbols include a fish that returns a maximum of 1,000, and a creature that returns a maximum of 2,000.
Path of the Penguin has a maximum win of $30,000 and the minimum bet is $0.25 when you’re playing all of the paylines. The maximum bet is an impressive $200, one of the highest you will see.
The bonus feature on Path of the Penguin is triggered via the ice cube scatter symbol, and these ice cubes also play a big role in the feature itself. Your goal is to smash several of these cubes, choosing 3 of 5 and unlocking free spins or cash amounts as you do so. When your choices have been made your cash will be added to your total and the free spins will begin, assuming you triggered some.
Path of the Penguin is very simple and doesn’t have much going for it. The bonus feature makes up for this, as does the wild, but overall this is a very substandard pokie.
