The Pink Panther was made famous by the movies starring the late great Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau. The cartoon version first appeared in the credits of the movie, but proved popularenough to earn its own extremely popular series.
This 2010 slot game from Playtech is based on the latter, featuring elements familiar to fans of the cartoon.
So, the high value symbols are the Little Man and Inspector Clouseau, with a bomb, magnifying glass and pink paint brush also appearing. Low value symbols on the 5 x 4 reels are the traditional 9to A icons. As the Pink Panther looks on idly from the side of the screen, a very entertaining game unfolds.

Pink-tastic Random Bonus Rounds
As you might expect, Pink Panther is the wild symbol here, subbing in for regular symbols. There are also a number of random bonuses which can appear at any time to keep things interesting. PinkPow is when the Pink Panther decides to blow up from 2 to 6 symbols on the reels, turning them into wilds.
Crack the Pink Code is a click and pick game where you open safes to discover free games, multipliers and expanding wilds. The Color Pink Bonus is offers a cash prize in a painting game, and theWheel of Pink is a wheel spinning game with cash prizes on offer.
The Game that Keeps on Giving
The random games aren’t finished yet though! The Pink Trail bonus has the good Inspector following pink footprints with a cash prize on offer. The final random element is the big one. This gamehas a minor and major progressive jackpot up for grabs. This can be triggered at any time, although high value bets have a better chance of getting into the jackpot game.
If you are lucky enough to find it, there is a door opening game where you can win the minor or major jackpot, or a consolation prize depending on which you find first behind the 12 doors.Uncovering 5 Pink Panthers gets the major prize, 4 Inspector Clouseaus the minor prize, and if 3 Little Men appear first then you just get a consolation prize.
Double or Nothing
Although this game also features Scatter symbols, these do not trigger a separate bonus. Unusually, all the bonus rounds are random, as described above. The Scatters simply count as winning lineswhen 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels.
There is also a nice Gamble game available after any win if you choose. 5 cards are shown face down, and then the leftmost card is turned over. You choose one of the other 4, hoping your card ishigher. You can choose to double all or half your win, and collect when you’ve had enough.
The Pink Panther slot is a few years old now, but there is life in the old panther yet. With so many random bonus games available, each spin could bring a new boost to your bankroll. This is ahigh variance game though, so don’t expect the wins to come too often. Though of course, that just makes it all the sweeter when luck goes your way.
