Pelican Pete POKIE
Pelican Pete is a cartoon-styled pokie with 5 reels and 50 adjustable lines. The main character of the pokie is a fortunate pelican who stuffs his spacious beak pouch with coins but is not against sharing some with you. With regard to features, the pokie has a standard set of special symbols including wilds and scatters. In addition, you will enjoy stacked symbols and sticky wilds that come into play during free spins. You are not going to strike gold playing Pelican Pete since the first jackpot is really just $300, but great fun and entertainment at reasonable bet sizes are guaranteed.

The pokie has an uncommon reel grid that constitutes five reels and four rows so that 20 symbols are always on display. Due to this model, probability of occurrence of winning combinations is much higher than it is in normal 5x3 pokies. Pelican Pete has the same features and even paytable as Miss Kitty, another pokie from Aristocrat. Not accounting for the thematic distinction, both pokies look like clones so if you have played Miss Kitty and found it matching your interests, the reviewed pokie will appeal to you either.
You will come across the following symbols: six different pictures that refer to playing card values (Aces and down to Nines), starfish, anchor, treasure chest, purple fish and sunset. All of these are regular symbols that pay left to right.
Payouts are comparatively small and this is true even for those symbols that are at the top of the paytable. In brief words, all “high” symbols, except for Sunset, award x75 a line bet for five of a kind. Five Sunsets pay out x100. Given that the maximum line bet is $3, the largest jackpot in the pokie is as low as $300. The good thing here is that the large number of paylines presented in the pokie usually results in multiple qualifying combos being created at the end of each spin. So your total award per spin will consist of the sum of all values that each resulting combination has.
There’s only one bet option to adjust, i.e. a bet per line. It varies between $0.01 and $3, thus the minimum and maximum bets are $0.50 and $150 per spin. “Lines” is also a variable but you’d rather not lower its default value of 50.
A pelican is a wild. It behaves differently in the base game and free spins. In a normal mode, it appears as a standalone symbol everywhere except reel 1, and substitutes for all regular symbols. Pitifully, several matching wilds collected on a payline do not create a combination – they only act as assistants to regular pics.
Free spins with Sticky wilds
Lighthouse is a scatter that is reserved only for reels 1, 2 and 3. When three scatters appear simultaneously, 10 free spins are won. This quantity seems to be insufficient, given free spins have no multipliers to be applied to wins. However, the feature benefits from Sticky Wilds that dramatically increase the weight and potential payoff of free spins. Sticky Wilds are a variety of a regular wild (Pelican) that get fixed in their positions as soon as they land on any place after a spin. As free spins approach the end, the number of sticky wilds increases, thus each subsequent spin can result in higher and better winnings.
