Who let the dogs out? Blame the Wombat! I couldn’t help myself when I saw this great dog-themed slot game! The original version of this game, The Dog House, was released in 2019 by Pragmatic Play and is a game that is very difficult to forget. It had a huge burst of popularity and kept a lot of its fans around, and now with this Megaways edition, players will be back like a dog smelling sausages.
Let’s just say there are more ways to win than the Arctic Enchantress slot which has 243. It’s Megaways. You know the drill.
The talented team of developers at Pragmatic have given their game a fresh boost, and this canine crazy slot is an even more exciting adventure than before. With new layers of game play and better bonus features than ever, take a spin to find out what we mean.
Look and Feel
The game sticks to a similar design as the first version, the main difference being the addition of the Megaways mechanic and the increased paylines that come along with it. Its sits in there along with the 8 Tigers Gold Megaways slot and others.
The Dog House Megaways is vibrant and packed to the brim with colour: a very nice slot to look at. The background music might make you go a bit barking mad with the sound on high, just to warn you.
There are 4 different types of dogs on the reels, as well as other symbols that we discuss later. Woof! There are more colours on this slot than the Wanted Dead or a Wild slot, that’s for sure. That game is all beiges and browns.
The game runs very smoothly and all of the bonus features have different levels of reward. It’s a well-designed, modern slot game. Compare this to some of Pragmatic’s older games, and you can see how far they have come in both the production and mechanics within their games. It is great to see, and we hope it continues into the future!
The Dog House Megaways Game Play
The symbols in this game include some adorable doggies, as well as other canine related items that stick to the theme very well. The reels are set inside a Kennel, with some picket fences and luscious green grass in the background. The lower paying symbols in this game are the standard card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A, and although these symbols show up frequently, you will see a lot of the others too because of the amount of pay-lines this game can stretch to
The dogs you will see in this game are a Pug, a Shitzu, a Dachshund, and a Rottweiler. The Rotty is the highest paying symbol in the game, and during the bonus rounds, you want to look out for these in your reels. The other symbols are a Bone, a Collar, and a Paw Print which is the Bonus symbol.
There is a Wild symbol in the game too, represented by a Dog House and containing a multiplier of 2x or 3x, meaning you can make combinations and have your winnings multiplied.
The Bonus Round in this game is split into two sections, from which you get to decide between 2 available options. The round is triggered when you land 3 or more Scatter symbols on your reels, and depending on how many Scatters you trigger the round with, the value of your free rounds will increase.
The two options are Sticky Wilds Free Spins and Raining Wild Free Spins. I preferred the Sticky Wilds over the other option, but that’s just me.
During this round, every spin can have up to 6 multiplier-active Wild symbols on it, meaning each spin could end up having a tidy amount of wilds and multipliers applied to your winnings. These wilds will leave the reels on each spin, meaning you could have some lucrative spins and some bog-standard ones. As mentioned, triggering with different amounts of scatters gives you a different number of spins. For this round, 3 gets you 15 spins, 4 gets you 18, 5 gets 25 and 6 scatters gives you 30 free spins. The Crufts Gold Prize!
During this round, every reel can build up between 2 and 7 sticky wilds that will not leave the reels. These wilds have multipliers on them, too, which means that if you get lucky enough to land a decent amount of wilds across your reels you could put together some whopping wins. There is a chance you could have wilds on all of the middle reels, and so any spin will result in a win and could bring you a nice overall rewards.
The different scatter triggers in this game are as follows: 3 scatters will give you 7 spins, 4 gives 12, 5 gives 15 and 6 gives you 20 free spins.
You can also buy the bonus round if you do not want to spin until you land it for real, but paying for the round costs a decent amount and comes straight out of your bank balance. This feature is not available in the UK.
This slot from Pragmatic is a fun, friendly, vibrant and exciting game that holds out a great promise of reward if you manage to trigger the bonus rounds (or pay to trigger them). It is a great game overall and takes the original version of the game onto another level.
The team at Pragmatic have done an fantastic job with this game, it’s Pedigree Treats all round.
