Penguin Vacation comes with 5 reels and 20 paylines, as well as Playtech’s expertise in creating fun casino games. Judging by the betting limits, this game aims to capture the budget player market, featuring bets starting from 0.01 that can go up to 1.00 per payline.

Special Symbols

As Penguin Vacation is a slot game it comes with a variety of different penguin-related symbols. These can be categorized as High Paying, Low Paying, and Special. If you have ever played a slot game before, you will immediately recognize the high card symbols that serve as the Low Paying. These feature the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine as ice sculptures covered in snow. They form a winning combination when you hit 3 or more of the same symbol on an active payline, with the exception of the Nine which only requires a match of 2 to form a combination. The High Paying symbols feature a family of penguins with the luggage that they carry. These are a Fish Popsicle, a Suitcase, the Kid Penguin, as well as, the Mother and Father Penguin.

The Specials category consists of two symbols – the Wild and the Scatter. The Wild is represented as a happy penguin going down a slide of ice. It can substitute any missing symbol on an active payline, with the exception of the Scatter. The Scatter symbol portrays a Fishing Bauble cast over a hole in the ice. This symbol can drastically boost your bankroll, provided that you score a winning combination.

Bonus Round and Features

Penguin Vacation is relatively light on features and it offers no bonus rounds, but there are still some things that deserve to be mentioned. Whenever a Wild lands on the reels it will expand to cover all 3 positions on the reel. Additionally, whenever it is present in a winning combination it will the double the winnings from that payline.

The Scatter can also have special interactions when it hits the reels. Stacking 3 or more Scatters will reward you with free spins and a winnings multiplier. Depending on the number of Scatters involved, you can receive up to 33 Free Games and a multiplier of up to 15 times. This is what is referred to as the Fishing Bonus in the game. The minimum reward for triggering it is 8 Free Games and a 2 times winnings multiplier. If you manage to hit 3 or more Scatters during the Free Games you can trigger even more free spins.


Penguin Vacation is fun and lighthearted slot game that can offer you much in the of entertainment provided that you enjoy the theme. The aesthetic is the only thing that holds this game up. As you have probably noticed, there is nothing in this game that is exceptional; the bonus rounds are very barebones and the features can be expanded upon. Still, it has to be mentioned that the payoffs that Penguin Vacation offers are generous and certainly nothing to scoff at. Overall, this game is targeted towards a specific demographic and you may or may not be part of it. We recommend giving the game a few spins of the reels in free mode to see if you like it or not.
