The folks at MyVegas added another Slot Game to Facebook MyVegas last weekend. It is Pandarama, and for the next while (until Tuesday, April 8th at midnight) there are Double XP Points when you play it.
Now… to gain access to the game, you either have to either invite three Facebook friends (who aren’t already in your MyVegas friends group) or buy Chips.
Pandarama is played on the Facebook version of MyVegas. It is a five reel Slot Game, with three Bonus Games.
As always with MyVegas Games, the tiles and characters match the theme of the game… and as the Panda’s in this game are crime-fighting superheroes, the tiles are comprised of Pandas, Gator Villains, Crab Robots, Police cars, handcuffs, Polar Bear Chief of Police, money bags and such. You can consult the game’s PAYS table, to find out all the different winning combinations.
Just above the reels, near the top of the Game field, you can see there are three sections: Gator Raid, FreeSpin and Mad Crab.
Each of these Bonus Games is triggered by collecting the appropriate number of winning tiles to add an icon to each of the sections. When you collect three icons in a section, you get to play the Bonus Game associated with that section.
Gator Raid is a Panda, fighting against a bank-robbing Gator. After you press the BATTLE button, whoever captures the other in their “bubble ray”, gets to choose two money bags of Bonus Chips, from those strewn around the crime scene. There are twelve bags of Bonus Chips, and depending on the game you choose to play, there are varying numbers of rounds. At the end of the Bonus, depending on how many rounds you’ve won against the Gator, you can choose whether you want to play a final “All or Nothing” round, or not.. wagering all the Bonus Chips you have collected to that point, against all the Gator collected, in an ALL or NOTHING final game.
The Free Spin Bonus is a bunch of free spins (Not much to explain there) !!!
The Mad Crab Bonus Game is a robotic Crab, “terrorizing the city” that our three Panda heroes have to defeat, pressing the BATTLE button, and collecting Bonus Chips in each turn, until a “Collect” plate comes up, and the Bonus Game comes to an end. (And, of course, your Pandas defeat the robot.)
It is great that the MyVegas folks are continuing to produce new games for the FB Version and add games to the Mobile App… but (for myself) I prefer a faster pace of Bonus Game, and the Gator Raid Bonus Game to me, was (after a few rounds) kinda clunky, and slow. The Mad Crab Bonus Game was better, and similar to the Luxor’s Sphinx-Ray Bonus or Pirate’s Cove’s Caribbean Gold Bonus. But having said that, I don’t know that I am necessarily the Target Market for this kind of game… I personally prefer something faster and more straight-forward like Studio City… and a lot of my friends find that too boring… so great that PlayStudios are continuing to develop and create different games, so there is something for everyone !!!
Good luck !
