Play Big Bamboo Slot
Big Bamboo is a volatile, oriental-themed panda slot from Push Gaming, and it plays out on a 5x6 grid with 50 paylines. Mystery Bamboo symbols will sometimes turn into Golden Bamboo positions, and these spin individually to award instant cash prizes that can be multiplier-boosted up to the 50,000x win cap. Up to 4 low-symbols can be converted to Mystery Bamboos in the bonus round, and you can check our full review below the free demo game.

Big Bamboo Review
Last Update: 18.10.2022. Author: SlotCatalog.
There’s no doubt that the Panda bear is the most peaceful, cozy and adorable animal in the bear family, but the idyllic, zen-like facade Push Gaming has created in Big Bamboo contains a man-eating grizzly bear (‘Ursus Horribilis’) math model that will bare its teeth as soon as you hit the spin button. Set deep in a bamboo forest, the 5x6 grid comes with high-value cartoonish animal symbols and royal low-paying symbols.
Stacks of Mystery Bamboos will help top you up on occasions, and if they turn into Golden Bamboo positions you can look forward to a nerve-racking one-by-one reveal of cash prizes up to 5,000x. These can be boosted by collect and/or multiplier symbols, so the 50,000x potential is always within reach. You get even more Mystery Bamboos in the bonus round, due to the low-symbol conversion system, and the max win probability is a very decent 1 in 21 million.
Big Bamboo Slot Features
The premium animal symbols, consisting of a blue bird, a green monkey, a brown boar and the top-tier panda, pays between 12 and 150 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The Wild symbol can appear anywhere, and it pays the same as the panda symbol. In addition, the wild symbol steps in for all pay symbols to help complete winning combinations.
The Mystery Bamboo symbols tend to land in stacks, and you’ll see a lot of them in this game. They act like mystery symbols usually do, and transform into a randomly chosen matching symbol as the reels come to a halt.
Sometimes, the regular mystery bamboo symbols will reveal Golden Bamboo symbol positions, and this triggers the Golden Bamboo feature. All Golden Bamboo positions will then spin individually, and each position can land the following special symbols:
- Instant Prize - awards a random cash prize between 1x and 5,000x your stake.
- Collector - collects the value of all instant prize and/or collector symbols.
- Multiplier - boosts instant prize and/or collector symbols by x2 to x10.
The Golden Bamboo feature may reveal scatter symbols as well, or they can land organically in the base game. Whenever you land regular scatters on reels 2 and 3, you may also land a Gamble Scatter on reel 4. The gamble scatter position then spins to reveal 1 of 4 outcomes:
- A blank symbol means that nothing happens.
- The bonus round is triggered with 4-9 free spins.
- The bonus round is triggered with 7-9 free spins, and 2 low-value symbols are pre-converted to Mystery Bamboo symbols.
- The bonus round is triggered with 8-10 free spins, and all 4 low-value symbols are pre-converted to Mystery Bamboo symbols.
If you don’t get the top-tier feature from the gamble scatter, you may Gamble for a better bonus round tier. You will then spin a gamble wheel to try your luck, and you will either move up a tier (extra spins and/or converted low-value symbols), or lose the feature altogether.
Scatters are collected in the right-hand side low-symbols meter during the Bonus Round, and you need 4 collected scatters per low-pay symbol to convert them into Mystery Bamboo symbols. It works as follows:
- Collect 4 scatters to convert the first low-pay symbol into the Mystery Bamboo, and get +4 extra spins and an x2 Golden Bamboo multiplier.
- Collect 4 more scatters to convert the second low-pay symbol into the Mystery Bamboo, and get +3 extra spins and an x3 Golden Bamboo multiplier.
- Collect 4 more scatters to convert the third low-pay symbol into the Mystery Bamboo, and get +3 extra spins and an x5 Golden Bamboo multiplier.
- Collect 4 more scatters to convert the fourth low-pay symbol into the Mystery Bamboo, and get +2 extra spins and an x10 Golden Bamboo multiplier.
You can also win extra spins via the Golden Bamboo feature, when +1, +2 or +3 symbols land. The Golden Bamboo multiplier you have achieved will boost all instant prizes, or collector symbols, that appear when the Golden Bamboo feature triggers.
The Star Icon is available in some jurisdictions only, and not in the UK for sure, as this takes you into the Bonus Buy feature. You have 4 bonus buy options that work as follows:
- Pay 99x your stake for 7-9 free spins and zero pre-converted symbols (RTP of 96.94 %).
- Pay 179x your stake for 7-9 free spins and 2 pre-converted symbols (RTP of 96.76 %).
- Pay 608x your stake for 8-10 free spins and 4 pre-converted symbols (RTP of 96.71 %).
- Pay 300x your stake for 7-10 free spins and 0-4 pre-converted symbols (RTP of 96.74 %).
The 200 Spins Big Bamboo Slot Experience
We landed occasional smaller wins between all the dead spins in the base game, and the bonus round triggers organically close to the 1-minute mark. The gamble scatter awarded 8 free spins with 2 pre-converted low-symbols, so we decided to not gamble for more. We soon managed to convert yet another low-pay symbol, and you can see how we fared by hitting the play button below.
Push Gaming has basically allowed themselves to be inspired by several of their own recent releases, as well as their smash hit, Razor Shark. Big Bamboo comes with a calming zen atmosphere, not unlike Fire Hopper, but the tranquil surface hides a brutal beast of a math model underneath it all. You’ll grind along with plenty of dead spins in the base game, and what you really want is the Fat Drac-inspired instant prize Golden Bamboo feature.
A 5,000x prize combined with the top-tier x10 multiplier cracks the 50,000x potential immediately, but don’t expect huge payouts most of the time. We like the tension when the Gamble scatter spins, but we wish the bonus round multipliers would also apply to regular wins. The feature is very ‘hit or miss’, like is the case with so many Push Gaming releases, but we don’t think a theme like this will quite knock it out of the park. Still a solid effort though, and well worth trying.
- Mystery Bamboo Symbol stacks

If you appreciate Big Bamboo Slot you should also try:
Fire Hopper - is a recent Push Gaming release with a similar tranquil vibe. It’s all about the frog wilds journey towards firefly or instant prize symbols, leaving gold frog wilds in its wake while increasing the wild multiplier per leap. The multiplier doesn’t reset in the bonus round, and you can win up to 50,000x your stake.
Fat Drac - is Push Gaming’s follow-up to their instant classic, Fat Rabbit, and you can land random bubble prizes up to 50,000x your stake from various Bat features. The Drac is a mystery reveal symbol instead of a wild though, and it grows as it consumes blood-goblets in the bonus round.
Pandas Fortune 2 - is an oriental-inspired follow-up release from Pragmatic Play, and you get golden symbols in winning combos that can reveal prizes up to 4,998x your stake. You get even more golden symbol prize chances in the bonus round, and the overall max win is 5,000x your stake.
