Play’n Go has released their first new slot game for 2020, Wildhound Derby.
This new game comes with a dog racing theme and comes with 30 lines on 5 reels, each 4 symbols high.
All regular symbols appear stacked on all reels, only the wild symbol doesn’t. And the bonus symbols, which only appear on reel 5, also need to appear stacked to trigger the free spins feature.
Free Spins Feature
Like I mentioned above, when reel 5 is fully stacked with greyhounds, you will trigger the free spins feature.
Before free spins begin pick one of the four dogs as a winner.
These dogs will stay on the reels and you will receive an unlimited number of spin. And before the reels, special hare symbols might appear. When a hare symbol appears, that dog will move to the left one reel.
Free spins keep continuing until one of the dogs moves off the screen (past reel 1). All dogs are also wild symbols during free spins.
If you picked the correct dog, all your winnings from free spins will be multiplied up to 15 times when spinning a special wheel.
There aren’t many slot games with a dog racing themes, in fact I can’t even think of one, so maybe this is the only one.
This might be because a lot of people don’t like a theme like this because of animal welfare. For me personally, I hate any sports where animals are used in real-life, but for a slot game, I don’t mind it. And the theme fits.
Wildhound Derby is a pretty standard slot game during base game, but can pay out huge during the free spins feature. Getting that multiplier on top of your winnings can really give some huge rewards. In fact the theoretically maximum win on this game is 15.000 times bet, which is huge.
But also be aware that this game has the highest volatile level, Play’n Go gives this to their own slot games. So the game might not be for everyone.
I enjoy this game and I think a lot of slot players will too, so check out Wildhound Derby at Casumo.
