Your bags are packed and you are headed to the South Pole for an old fashioned penguin vacation. In this Happy Feet-inspired slot you’ll find a number of different ways to make your wallet happy, in addition to some adorable, Hawaiian-shirt wearing penguins as well.

While everything about it seems oddly similar to another Playtech pokie, Great Blue, that doesn’t make this any less fun of a pokie to play. Gameplay was kept purposefully simple and your main goal is to get yourself into the fishing hole mini-game, where you can then rack up some serious wager multipliers.

Rating breakdown

This is one pokie that isn’t too feature heavy, but it’s mini-game can be lucrative enough that our Penguin Vacation review team didn’t seem to mind so much.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

The Fishing Hole is the game’s scatter symbol and three appearing anywhere on the reels activates the fishing hole mini-game. This mini-feature gives you eight free games right off the bat along with a double multiplier, both of which can be increased. In the end if you select the right fishing holes you can win up to 33 total free spins and a 15x multiplier. It’s a pretty standard bonus feature as far as they go, but during our review of Penguin Vacation our reviewers took away some pretty big hauls.
