Pantry Plunder Slot Review

Loosely based on the nursery rhyme ‘3 Blind Mice’, Pantry Plunder is a beautifully designed but rather strange 5 reel, 20 payline slot game from Playtech. It comes with wild cheese symbols that spread to adjoining symbols when touched by a mouse. Also on the menu are stacked wilds, a whack a mouse feature and a trail bonus. Try and raid the pantry from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Superb design

The sound and visuals in the Pantry Plunder slot are terrific. The setting is an old-fashioned deli. You’ll see a shop counter, register, jars of herbs and spices as well as assorted sausages, garlic bulbs and much else besides. On the reels are A to 10 royal symbols done pretzel style. They’re joined by a jar of orange marmalade and a leg of ham. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these for a tasty payout of 2, 5 or 25 times your stake.

Cheese wilds

To the side of the reels you’ll see the 3 Blind Mice. If a cheese symbol lands next to a mouse, it will turn wild and lock in place for the next spin. If a new cheese lands next to an existing cheese wild, it too turns wild. This is called the Cheese Wilds feature.

Special bonuses

On any spin where no mouse is on the reels, you could randomly trigger the Special Bonus feature. Choose from the 3 cloches to see which of the following has been awarded.

  • 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

The Whack-A-Mouse Bonus feature is a mouse version of the classic Whack a Mole fairground game. Whack the mice to win cash prizes.

Big Cheese Trail Bonus feature

Roll the dice to work your way along the trail in the Big Cheese Trail Bonus feature The further you progress, the bigger the rewards on offer. If you make it all the way to the end of the trail, you’ll get a spin of the Big Cheese Wheel of Fortune which guarantees a massive win.

Well designed but unusual

The Pantry Plunder slot s is a very strange game as far as theme and gameplay are concerned. The unusual extras and the way they are triggered takes a little getting used to. If you can, try and take advantage of some demo mode spins until you get your eye in.

Once you have, there’s plenty to like. The sound and visuals are as good as you’ll see anywhere and the spreading wilds, stacked wilds, whack a mouse and trail bonuses can deliver some decent action – medium variance, you can win up to 500 times your stake on each spin.

If you’re looking for a slot that offers something a little different, then Pantry Plunder certainly delivers that. For something similar, Quickspin’s Pied Piper slot is recommended.
