The Wombat says: This Wombat is a fan of the classic gangster film of a similar name, so it tickled our furry ribs to see that this slot has borrowed from the Coppola classic, and added a canine twist.
This time the crims are a bunch of hardened dogs gone wrong. But will this game be dodgy old dog or have some real bite? Let’s fire her up!
Look and Feel
The world of doggy gangsters has been put together nicely with a cast of canine crims to rival the real Mafia dons. The graphics are standard for a Microgaming 5-reel slot (those people behind the Dragon Dance slot, Jurassic World and Thunderstruck) with lots of vivid colour and a glamorous bunch of dogs who look less like friendly pets, and more like the hounds of hell to this Wombat… This murky canine underworld is also populated by golden fleas ready to dish you out some chunky pays and a cast of other crazy characters and weaponry to boot. It’s a big step up from games like the Genies Gems slot. Woof!
The soundtrack takes the player straight into the world of smoky jazz clubs and the sleazy underside of flea pit speakeasies and dangerous molls. We likey.
Dogfather has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. The higher value symbols on the reels include a growling Staffy, a gangster’s moll in the shape of a glamourous Spaniel, a tough guy Pug dog, a pair of seriously menacing Dobermans and, of course, the Dogfather himself, a big boss Bulldog with a smokin’ cigar. Other symbols include a host of scary-looking doggy weaponry; think dog claw knuckle dusters and a golden fanged nemesis, in the form of Flea called Itchy da Flea, (I know what a pain in the backside those guys can be!)
These guys and gals are after one thing: bread, moolah, the stuff you’ll find in the Cool Buck slot machine. They’re after the same thing as you- money!
This game’s Wild is the bully Bulldog whose face will substitute for all symbols except for Scatter and Bonus symbol. If you manage to land 5x Dogfathers across the reels then the good times will roll for you and you’ll get your paws on a 13,000 coin jackpot. Nice work Microgaimng!
Free Spins Bonus
The Scatter symbol in Dogfather slot is every Wombat’s old enemy: Itchy de Flea. If that little critter is scattered 3x, 4x, or 5x times across the reels then you win a criminally good 13 free spins! And if this wasn’t motivation enough, all the wins during the Free Spins round are tripled- these gangsters sure know how to have make some quick bucks!
Dogfather Territory Bonus
The humble water hydrant (a beacon to dogs everywhere) is the bonus symbol here. Land 3x or more water hydrants across the reels and you’ll set off the Mark Your Territory bonus – a gratifying stack of wonga bursts out of the hydrant when you get there, too! Just pick the hydrants each which reveals a hidden cash prize, and collect that all-important moolah!
Gangster movie fans will enjoy this slot. The gameplay is entertaining but it’s the Bonuses that really keep the game exciting, with enough free spins to keep this Wombat coming back for more. Lucrative and creative? What’s not to like?
