Pelican Pete slot - Free Play - Game Review
Pelican Pete was today found guilty of 76 varying sex-crimes, and sentenced to life in prison…
… is probably what you expect when you hear the word “Pelican Pete”.
Thankfully, Pelican Pete (we promise we’ll try not to say it too much) is a Video Slot game from Aristocrat Gaming Technologies, and while the name is – a little troubling to say the least – the game itself is actually relatively impressive, offering players the chance to enjoy a unique form, with 5-reels, and 50-pay lines. Perhaps more notable, is that there are FOUR rows, instead the classic three – something that adds depth to the game (or more time to Pete’s Prison sentence, perhaps…?)
Anyway, the game’s designed typical Aristocrat Gaming Technologies style; you’ll see traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), and a few game specific symbols on the reels, and the simple game functions below the reels include the Paytable button, the Line-bet selection arrows, the Bet/Line selection arrows, the “Spin” button, and an AutoPlay button.
There’s also a gamble feature, for when you feel like giving away money to the casino.
There’s just one bonus-round in Pelican Pete (sorry we said it), and this is a free-spins round.
The free-spins round is triggered by landing 3 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view, and this allows you to enter the free spins bonus. During the free-spins round, anywhere a scatter symbol – “Pete” himself – lands in view, he’ll freeze in place, acting as a sticky wild for the rest of your free-spins.
Yes, you will enjoy the rest of your free-spins with Pelican Pete staring you straight in the eyes… looking into your mind and soul…
Although that might not be a bad thing, as – in fairness – a sticky-wilds feature can go HUGE if you’re lucky enough to land a few of the wilds early on during the bonus. The free-spins can also be re-triggered – kind of.
If you see a lighthouse symbol appear below a Pelican Pete symbol, you’ll be awarded five extra free-spins – but this can only happen once per bonus.
Pelican Pete is a popular classic on desktop computers, and because of this, it’s now available to enjoy on mobile phones and tablet devices. iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows users can all enjoy the mobile-version of the game hassle-free, and alongside an Internet connection, there’s nothing else you need in order to begin having fun!
Pros: The sticky wild feature in the free-spins is GREAT, and can go massive if you get lucky.
Cons: “Pelican Pete”. That’s all. “Pelican Pete”
