Packed with the maximum Play’n GO volatility, five different wild symbols, an amazing Winner’s Wheel bonus and loads of other extras, the Wildhound Derby slot is another anticipated slot release which hits the market on the 9th of January. The game features 5 reels and 30 paylines with a favorable RTP of 96.93% and lucrative top payouts.
As suggested by the game’s name, it takes players to the races where fast hounds race across the game’s five reels. In other words, the Wildhound Derby slot is all about greyhound racing which is currently legal in only eight countries. The sport was introduced a long time ago in the 1920s and soon later it became a huge hit.
In real life, the sport’s popularity is rather in decline due to the poor treatment of racing dogs. The best way to enjoy the sport without poorly our furry friends is to try the Play’n GO Wildhound Derby slot. Before the game hits the market in January, players can try recent Play’n GO releases which are available across online casinos such as Ankh of Anubis, Chronos Joker, Black Mamba, Xmas Magic, Doom of Egypt, Honey Rush, Cash Pump, Demon, and Rainforest Magic.
When it comes to the game’ design, players will notice that it features easily recognizable Play’n GO visuals with a slightly retro vibe. All gaming actions are happening at the dog track while the main gaming area is neatly bordered by crowds and bettors cheering. To start the game, players need to invest between 0.10 up to 100 credits and the main goal is to hit at least three matching symbols on a payline.
The game’s symbols also have a retro vibe to them. These include lower-valued royals which appear alongside more rewarding dog track tickets, betting slips, cash wads, winners’ ribbons and other. The most rewarding symbol is the cash wad which brings awesome winnings worth up to 100x players’ stake for five of a kind winning combos.
The Wildhound Derby slot features not one, but five different wild symbols. There is a standard wild symbol depicted as the winner’s cup that comes with the usual functionality of replacing regular symbols on the reels. These wilds also bring winnings worth up to 100x players’ stake. The four other wild symbols are depicted as Oh My Dog, Beadle’s Teabag, Daring Dex and Braveheart racing dogs. It should be noted that these wilds land only on the fifth reel while they act just like the standard wild.
The game is also packed with a great variety of bonuses. First off, all, there is a Dog Race feature that is triggered by landing four wild dog symbols on the fifth reel. Once triggered, players get to choose one of the four racing dogs and hope that their favorite wins the race. This special Free Spins bonus starts with all dog wild symbols racing on the fifth reel.
Players will also notice a Race Indicator located on the left side of the reels. As the race starts, each of the four rows located on the Race Indicator will also start spinning and in the process, the game leaves one or more Golden Hare symbols. As soon as a Golden Hare appears across a row, the corresponding wild starts moving forwards. Players get to enjoy free spins until one of the wild dogs moves past the first reel and finally wins the race.
If players’ chosen dog racer does not win, they collect their free spins winnings. On the other hand, if their chosen dog wins the race, the game’s Winner’s Wheel bonus is triggered. Here, players spin a colorful wheel where awesome winning multipliers of up to 15x players’ stake can be won.
