The Dog House Megaways Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Well, Pragmatic Play has recently decided to revamp some of their older game releases with new sequels. One of these sequels is ‘Aztec Gems Deluxe‘, which I recently reviewed and a sequel to Aztec Gems originally released in 2018. With so many releases per month, the studio is starting to lose their excitement within announcements in my opinion. Next from Pragmatic Play is titled ‘The Dog House Megaways‘, set to release August 13th across all sites.
The original ‘The Dog House‘ slot was released 5th March 2019. With a lot of praise from the casino community, thanks to the high varience on offer and exciting game play. Now we have a rerelease a year later, with the infamous Megaways tool implemented and other small changes. The background is set in a typical neigbourhood, with various houses and other small details. Such as trees, grass, paths and white fences. The reel set is inside a dog house, with a roof on top and wooden borders. Overall, the roots of the visual aspect remains within this new release.
The Dog House Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2-7 rows, this includes 64 – 117,649 Megaways. This game is high variance with a set RTP of 96.55% and max win capped at 12,305x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
The Dog House Megaways Slot Review Pay Table & Symbols
There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by bones, collars, Dachshunds, Pugs, Shih Tzus and Rottweilers. In addition to these regular symbols is a scatter and dog house wild. The highest paying symbol is the Rottweilers premium, which pays 7.5x for 6 symbols across all reels. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Wilds can have a random multiplier of 2x or 3x.
The Dog House Megaways Slot Review Features
Central to this game is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one base game spin. There are two different Free Spins options you are able to choose from, the number of free spins depends on how many scatters from the initial trigger. These two features are;
Sticky Wilds Free Spins
6 Scatters (20 Free Spins) – 3 – 7 sticky wilds on each reel.
5 Scatters (15 Free Spins) – 2 – 7 sticky wilds on each reel.
4 Scatters (12 Free Spins) – 2 – 7 sticky wilds on each reel.
3 Scatters (7 Free Spins) – 2 – 7 sticky wilds on each reel.
During spins when a wild of any size hits, a random multiplier of 1x, 2x or x3 is applied to the wild and remains on reels until the end of the round. Changing size as reel size changes in the next spins. Until the end of the round each reel size is guaranteed to be at the mimimum size of the number of wild symbols sticky on it. This feature cannot be retriggered and special reels are in play.
Raining Wilds Free Spins
6 Scatters (30 Free Spins) – Up to 6 raining wilds on each spin.
5 Scatters (25 Free Spins) – Up to 6 raining wilds on each spin.
4 Scatters (18 Free Spins) – Up to 6 raining wilds on each spin.
3 Scatters (15 Free Spins) – Up to 6 raining wilds on each spin.
During this feature on every spin, there are up to 6 wild symbols of any size, carrying a multiplier of 1x, 2x or 3x and can be added to any random positions. This feature can not be retriggered and special reels are in play.
You are able to purchase free spins for 100x your bet size if allowed in your country. A random number of scatters, 3-6 will be forced to land to trigger the free spins feature.
Overall, I think Pragmatic Play has done a fantastic job creating this slot sequel. The game sticks with the original roots, within the same visuals style and theme. There are two exciting free spin features and high variance on offer. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
