The Dog House Review
The Dog House is developed by Pragmatic Play. This 5-reel and 3-row dog-themed game attracts lots of dog lovers across the world.
With The Dog House you can win up to almost 7,000 x the total bet and you do it with the sticky wilds with multipliers that you can win during the free spins bonus.
The cartoon animal theme may seem a bit childish, but the potential of this slot totally shows us how contrary it is.
In any case, The Dog House is a melee with a colorful assortment of four-legged friends. Rottweilers, pugs, poodles and dachshunds live together in harmony in this special home.
How does The Dog House video slot work?
The Dog House has 5 reels, 3 symbol rows and 20 pay lines. The minimum bet is $0.20 and the maximum bet is $100.
The variance is big, that’s why the winnings should be generated especially during the bonus round. So the base game is kind of boring and really just a prelude to the free spins bonus. The theoretical payout percentage, which is calculated over millions of spins, is 96.51%.
Symbols and payments
The main symbol of this slot is the doghouse. It’s Wild and substitutes for all symbols except scatter symbols. Wilds only appear on the middle 3 reels. They also contain 2x or 3x multipliers and these stack with multiple Wilds in a winning combination.
Of the four premium symbols (all cute dog pictures), the most pays the Rottweiler: 37.50 x the total bet on a 5-of-a-kind. Normally, Rottweilers are known as aggressive killing machines, but this Rottweiler is apparently in a good mood and his eyes sparkle with a big grin on his head.
The other dogs pay between 10x and 25x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind on an active win line.
There are also two half pay symbols: a necklace and a bone. If you spin 5 of the same of these symbols, you win 7.50 x and 5 x the total bet, respectively.
Lastly, there are the 5 card symbols: the 10, J, Q, K and A – these are worth between 1.25x and 2.50x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind.
Free spins bonus
If 3 scattered paw prints land on reels 1, 3 and 5, it will lead to the free spins bonus.
However, before entering the bonus, you need to determine how many free spins you will start with.
Our big paw Ricky the Rottweiler spins some wheels and gears, which in turn operate a series of wooden barrels. There are 9 barrels and they can display 1, 2 or 3 free spins.
At the end of the spin, all free spins are added up and you are ready to go. Start with a minimum of 9 spins and a maximum of 27 spins.
During free spins all Wilds, which only appear on the middle reels, are sticky.
And also during free spins Wilds have an extra multiplier of 2x or 3x.
If you manage to quickly spin a lot of Sticky Wilds on reel 2 and reel 3, then you are guaranteed a huge win with every spin.
