Stellar Jackpots with Dolphin Gold from NextGen Gaming: Slot Review - shoot your way to a jackpot!

Take a trip to the ocean below then blast off into space in an instant!

This game revolves around a magical golden dolphin. Dolphins are said to be some of the most intelligent creatures on our planet and they are also highly social animals that look out for each other when living in a pod. In some cultures, dolphins are known to bring good luck so it is no surprise that many software producers have created slots based on this beautiful marine mammal. The title of this game is a bit of a mouthful but this is because it is part of a group of slot titles that feature the “Stellar Jackpot” name. It is a slot based on an ocean bed that features lots of sea life but it also takes you on a zany trip into space!

It is a 5 reel slot with 40 paylines that includes exciting features such as free games, stacked wilds, and the chance to win from 3 different jackpots.

Special Features

The first feature I stumbled across while playing this game is the Wild symbol. This symbol is depicted by the Blue Dolphin and it substitutes for all other symbols. It only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 but any Wild symbol that contributes to a win will double the payout! The Gold Dolphin is the Scatter symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Wild Symbol.

To trigger the Free Games feature, you need to land 6 or more Wild symbols. It goes without saying that the more Wild symbols you get, the more free games you will be awarded. For example, 6 Blue Dolphins will give you 3 Free Games whereas 12 Blue Dolphins will give you a whopping 21 Free Games! In this feature, the Scatter symbol really comes into play as stacks of Gold Dolphins are added to reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 to further increase your chances of a big payout. Another nice aspect of this feature is that it is possible to retrigger more Free Games up to 42 at least.

The standout feature of this game is the Stellar Jackpot Bonus feature. This is a random feature and can occur at any time as you play the game. It. When this feature triggers, you are transported into outer space where you have to shoot your way through 6 challenge levels and a Jackpot level. If you make it to the Jackpot level and match 3 of the Jackpot symbols then you will be awarded the corresponding jackpot prize. You are given 3 lives in this game so make sure to choose your targets wisely as once you have no more lives left, you will be taken straight back to the ocean floor!

Theme and Graphics

The visuals in this game are excellent. The ocean floor is teeming with life with lots of colourful coral surrounding the reels and some lobsters climbing up and down the air bubbles. The symbols consist of a variety of sea creatures such as seahorses, dolphins, turtles, flatfish, and stingrays. The animations are superb especially when playing the Stellar Jackpot Bonus game as the whole environment switches rapidly from an ocean setting to strapping you into the cockpit of a spaceship deep in outer space.

The music is calm and quite soothing as ocean waves gently roll in and out and you can hear the sound of air bubbles as they hit the surface. That all changes dramatically when you are taken into space as the music increases in tempo and changes to a techno style. It compliments the theme of the game really well.
