The Dog House Slots
The Dog House is the latest slot to be released by the gaming developers at Pragmatic Play which ports players into the world of a gang of four dogs and delivers some hilarious action. The slot plays out over 5-reels, 3-rows and 20 pay lines, read on to find out what the slot has to offer.
Theme and symbols It was a delight to be greeted by four incredibly cheeky dogs that roamed around the grounds of their home. The background for the slot is a suburban area complete with muted, warm tones, perfectly manicured lawns and beautiful butterflies.
The actual game window is a dog house complete with flowers and lighting and there is a strange but delightful soundtrack which is accompanied by barking and the normal reel sounds. The slot has the usual symbols one would expect from Pragmatic Play these being the card symbols 10 through to Ace, these are followed by a dog bone and collar with the top paying symbols being a rottweiler, pug, dachshund and a Shih Tzu. The dog house is significant as it is the wild and any wilds that form part of a winning combination randomly reveal either a x2 or x3 multiplier and free spins.
The wild will only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. If more than one multiplier is landed in one spin, these are added to and not multiplied by each other therefore making the total win multiplier x9. The scatter is depicted by a red gem modelled as a dog paw and only appears on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel.
The Dog House can be played for free as well as real money and bets range from a minimum of 0.20 coins per spin to a maximum of 100 coins per spin. Landing five matching symbols pay from x1.20 up to x37.5 of the original stake. The return to player stands at 96.51% meaning that this is classed as a high variance slot.
There are a number of features available in the Dog House which include an auto play function where players can select from 10 – 100 consecutive spins with several options on when the spins stop.
There is also the Turbospin or Quickspin where the reels spin at double or quadruple the standard speed. The free spins are where most of the action begins to unfold thanks to the sticky wilds that land on the central reels. Landing the paw scatters on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels will activate the bonus and sees the rottweiler welcoming players to his dog house where he spins a 3x3 format set of new reels. All of the reels have a number which indicates 1 – 3 free spins. The rottweiler spins the reels once and the numbers that are then in view are added and determine the total number of free spins for the round.
The minimum free spins are 9 with the maximum being 27, but unfortunately the free spins cannot be reactivated. During the free spin feature any wilds that land in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reels reveal a x2 or x3 multiplier and landed any further will turn into sticky wilds for the rest of the feature. The top prize is awarded when there is a complete 3x3 block containing x3 wilds on the middle reels and stacked rottweilers on the 1st and 5th reels and this rewards a massive x6750 of the original bet.
The Dog House is a really good example of a slot that does not have to be jam packed with features to give the opportunity to land some mega wins and really be entertained.
