If you're a fan of the animated movie starring an unlikely hero in the shape of a panda who becomes a Kung Fu master, you'll love the similar theme of Lightning Box Games hit slot, Panda Pow.
It's an online slot that packs a punch with its HD graphics, wild substitutions, and free spins bonus which comes with a second stacked wild symbol. It's made by the same company that brought us Chilli Gold, and contains just the right amount of humour and action to keep you glued to your monitor or mobile screen.
The top jackpot in Panda Pow is worth a massive 6,500 times your line bet, and the RTP is equally appealing at 95.51%. What's even more incredible, however, is the fact that it's a slots game which can handle budgets of all sizes thanks to a minimum bet of 25p and a maximum bet of £875.

Appearance and Sound Effects
Panda Pow is an oriental slot and so, the background features a martial arts school in the heart of the Chinese countryside whose majestic builds are adorned with colourful paper lanterns. A bamboo screen, which acts as the gates to the school, wraps around the sides and bottom of the reel set.
The game's name, Panda Pow, sits above the reels, and the word "POW!" is made to look like a cartoon explosion or punch.
As well as the panda karate master and an adorable baby panda reclining on a bamboo branch, there are other symbols you can use to create wins such as koi, gold coins, fans, paper lanterns, and playing card symbols.
Although the game is based around a high-intensity theme - martial arts - the oriental-style musical soundtrack is very pleasant and relaxing.
Bonuses and Special Features
In the base game, Panda Pow only uses one wild which also acts as the scatter symbol, and it's the image of the panda with a red bandana. It can appear on the middle three reels, and can substitute for all other symbols in the game to help create winning combinations. As the wild can land stacked, it's possible to get up to nine on the screen at the same time, and the more wilds that appear, the better as they can also award the Free Spins Bonus. Five, six, seven, eight, or nine wilds give you five, eight, twelve, fifteen, or twenty free spins respectively.
The bonus game uses a second wild symbol – the panda in a red-and-gold cape – which is added in stacks to Reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Panda Pow uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five paylines, and has an RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.51%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
Panda Pow is an online slot that holds appeal for all types of players. It's got a cute animal theme; it's got a brilliantly designed and potentially very lucrative free spins bonus, and it's affordable for budget-conscious players while also meeting the higher betting demands of high rollers.
