Pelican Pete Slot Overview
Pelican Pete slot is a beach-themed video slot by Aristocrat. It uses 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 adjustable pay lines. Set on a beach in the sunset, the game features standard Aristocrat graphics and animations which belong more to land-based slot machines than those played in the 21st century online.
The same goes for sounds which feature murmurs of people on the beach and some generic sound effects when a win is hit. The biggest star of the show is Pelican Pete with his beak loaded with golden coins.
If you are lucky enough, he will help you win higher payouts by standing for other symbols, especially during the free spins feature where he acts as Sticky Wild and stays on the reels for its duration.
Relax and Enjoy Sunset
Once on the beach, you will have an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful sunset scene. This represents the top paying symbol which awards 100 coins for a five of a kind combination. Other regular symbols include fish, treasure chests, anchors and starfish along with generic playing card symbols.
Wild is depicted as Pelican Pete while the lighthouse stands for Scatter. With a top fixed jackpot of only 100 coins, it is hard to tell whether the game contains any high-value symbols.
Like other Aristocrat titles, Pelican Pete slot machine offers you to adjust the number of pay lines you will play at. Once you choose the number of active paying lines, choose a bet per line from £0.01 to £2.
When playing at all pay lines active, your total stake can be anywhere between £0.50 and £100 per spin. If you press the + button on the Autoplay feature, you can activate up to 25 consecutive spins. The two top paying symbols pay even when you land only 2 symbols of a kind on an active paying line left to right, while all others award prizes for three or more identical symbols.
Let Lighthouse Guide You to Free Spins
Pelican Pete will complete your winning combinations by replacing for all regular symbols. The only symbol that cannot be substituted for is Lighthouse Scatter which triggers free games. Scatters will appear on the reels 1, 3 and 5 only and award a 2x your total bet payout. Land 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels 1, 3 and 5 and you will activate 10 free spins.
Whenever Pelican Pete Wild appears on the reels during the feature, it will turn Sticky and stays in its position till the feature ends. If Scatter appears beneath Sticky Wild, it will contribute to Scatter wins.
You can retrigger the feature and win another 5 free games with Sticky Wilds held in their position for the duration of free games. The Pelican Pete slot game awards quite mediocre payouts, but playing at all 50 pay lines active can result in frequent wins.
