The first thing that any player must do when they open up Espresso Games’ Van Penguin video slot, is choose how much they wish to play with. The value of their coins can include 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 25p, £1 or even £2. After making you choice, you will be taken the reels themselves. Once there, you can instantly see that this slot is a penguin themed game, and one which is very loosely based on Van Helsing. The slot contains 5 reels and either 13 or 26 paylines for you to bet on (it is your call). You can, however, select to wager anything from a low of 13p per spin, or as much as £52 per spin on this slot, which carries a non-progressive jackpot which is worth up to 37,500 coins in all.
Van Penguin is a wild symbol in this game, and when it appears, it can replace all other symbols in the slot, save for scatter and bonus icons. As is sometimes the case in slots, the wild is also the best paying symbol in the game. It can offer you wins worth 7,500 coins with a single coin bet. Bet with 5 coins, and you can win as much as the aforementioned 37,500 coins in all.
The group of penguin vampire brides act as scatter symbols in this game. They can multiply your total bet, if you land two or more of them anywhere on the reels. This is a pretty fair and nifty little feature, and one which is sure to keep you in the black whilst playing this slot machine game. Players will also bag 10 free spins, with multipliers worth 3x, 4x or 5x the normal rate of pay for landing 3, 4 or 5 such scatters anywhere on the reels.
A bonus round has also been included in Van Penguin. It is not easy to trigger, but it is generous enough when it comes to rewards, once you have managed to trigger it, that is. Van Penguin can see you land the bonus round when you locate 3 icy bonus symbols on the reels in any position. This bonus round consists of a very simple, but enjoyable click and win bonus round, as is often the case in slots developed by this petite and small-scale software provider.
