Special Features

The first feature to talk about is the Wild symbol which is illustrated by an image of a red and yellow dog kennel. This symbol like most Wilds replaces all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help create winning combinations on the reels. It only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the game and comes with a random multiplier of 2X or 3X. A neat feature of this symbol is that when it is part of a win then the multipliers of all Wild symbols on that payline are added to each other. This makes it possible to land multiplier payouts as high as 9X.

An image of a red and yellow paw print is the Scatter symbol in this game. Land this symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5 on the same spin to not only receive a nice payout worth 5X your wager but also, more importantly, trigger the Free Spins bonus game. In this fun feature, you will get to spin a wheel to determine how many Free Spins you will be awarded. The Free Spins range between 9 and 27. During Free Spins, all Wild symbols that hit on reel 2, 3, or 4 will then proceed to lock into place and remain sticky for the duration of the feature. These Wilds will also have a random multiplier attached depending on the reels they land on. Manage to get 3X Wilds on all 3 reels and you will boost your payouts considerably with a lucrative 9X multiplier!

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The Dog House features fantastic graphics as it takes place in a picturesque neighbourhood with prim and proper houses in the background along with a cloudy blue sky overhead. Symbols in the game consist of a variety of dogs including Dobermans, Dachshunds, Shih Tzus, Pugs, as well as Dog Collars and Bones along with classic A – 10 icons. The animations are wonderful as symbols fly down the reels and burst into life dramatically when part of a winning payline. For example, the Dachshund will catch a tennis ball and throw it when it is part of a win on the reels.

The music is pleasant and charming with an upbeat soundtrack playing in the background. It ties in nicely with the cute animal theme of the game.
