Playtech Pantry Plunder Video Slot Review

Pantry Plunder: Demo

Pantry Plunder is a rather strange slot from Playtech that’s based on the nursery rhyme ‘3 Blind Mice’. Played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, it comes with sticky wilds that can spread to adjoining reels. Trigger the bonus round to bring stacked wilds, a whack a mouse bonus and a cash trail into play. Play this superbly designed slot on all devices from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Top notch visuals

The setting in the Pantry Plunder slot is a well-stocked vintage deli that’s brimming with garlic, chillies, cheese and sausages. The A to 10 symbols appear in the style of pretzels. More rewarding still are the orange marmalade and leg of ham symbols. The latter pays 2, 5 or 25 times your total bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Cheese Wilds feature

Central to much of the best action are the cheese symbols. Land one of these on reel 1, next to the 3 blind mice and the mouse will have a nibble and turn the cheese into a wild. The wild locks for the spin that follows. If a cheese symbol lands alongside it, it too turns wild and the process is repeated. If no new cheese lands, the mouse returns to his position next to the reels.

Special Bonus feature

You could trigger the Special Bonus feature on any spin that doesn’t feature a mouse. You’ll be offered the pick of 3 cloches. Choose one to reveal a special prize.

  • 2, 3 or 4 cheese wilds win a horizontal line.
  • A guaranteed 5-of-a-kind win.
  • 2 cheese wilds plus the Farmer’s Wife stacked wild which fills the middle reel.
  • 3 cheese wilds plus the Whack-A-Mouse Bonus feature.
  • 4 cheese wilds plus the Big Cheese Trail Bonus feature.
  • A streak-style rush respin.

Whack-A-Mouse Bonus feature

Land the Whack-A-Mouse Bonus feature and you’ll be taken to a new screen to play a mouse version of the arcade favourite Whack-a-Mole. Just bash the mouse symbols to win cash awards.

Big Cheese Trail Bonus feature

The Big Cheese Trail Bonus feature is a classic cash trail bonus. Work your way along the board by rolling the dice. The further you get, the bigger the rewards on offer. Hope to reach the end of the trail as this will get you a spin of the Big Cheese Wheel of Fortune which guarantees a big win.

Pantry party

Pantry Plunder is a rather strange slot. The gameplay takes a little getting used to so have a go in play mode if you can. Those cheese wilds and other assorted goodies come along regularly and can deliver some decent action – up to 500 times you bet on each spin.

If the gameplay is a bit strange, what really impresses here is the design. The sound and visuals are superbly done. The theme is unusual but the classy visuals and unorthodox extras make this pantry worth a plunder.
