Pelican Pete is an incredibly basic and straightforward video pokie, which has been created by Aristocrat. There’s no flashy or fancy about Pelican Pete. What you have here is a run-of-the-mill, nature themed pokie game. The pokie is about Pelican Pete, who loves to dive down and pocket treasure from the seabed. It amounts to a bit of a tongue-in-cheek theme, if we’re being honest.
Pelican Pete’s gameplay structure consists of 5 reels, upon which sit a total of 50 paylines. Players can feel free to adjust those paylines as they see fit. They don’t get that much of a free hand with their line bets, which range from 0.25 up to 10.00. You’ll therefore be wagering anything from a low of 0.25 per line, per spin, up to 500.00 per spin in this costly title.
Coins Range:0.01 - 1.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:10
Wild symbol: Pelican Pete himself makes an appearance as a wild symbol in this game. It can replace all other icons in the pokie, save for bonus icon. Wilds are only capable of appearing on the second third, fourth and fifth reels of this game.
Bonus icons: The lighthouse is a bonus icon in Pelican Pete. It can appear on the first, second and third reels only. It also offers you scattered wins of 2 coins should 3 appear on those reels. If you do happen to land 3 of them, a free spins bonus activated.
Free games feature: In the free spins round, the player will begin with a total of 10 free games. At any time during this bonus, the Pelican Pete wild may appear and remain on the reels for the duration of the bonus round. If you land scatter icons below the wilds, then players will pick up a special one-off scatter win, as well as land 5 additional free games.
Pelican Pete is another one of several Aristocrat pokies which doesn’t seem to have a very large non-progressive jackpot. In fact, the jackpot in this pokie is worth a miniscule 100 coins. In order to win that jackpot, you will also have to land 5 of the sunset icons on any active line. It won’t be easy, that’s for sure. After the top icon, the next best paying symbols are the fish, treasure chest, anchor and starfish icons. Each of those pay out 75 coins, when 4 appear on any active payline. It’s not a bad compromise for failing to land the jackpot, in any case.
The pay-outs are relatively small in this pokie, and that is going to put some players off. Fortunately, there are enough special features to appeal to a great many players, too. Pelican Pete is certainly original, although it doesn’t have the best graphics. What you get with Pelican Pete is a kind of a mixed bag. There are aspects which you’re going to like, and there are aspects which you aren’t. Will it work for you? Well that all depends on your taste, and what you’re looking for in an online pokie machine game.
