Go walkies with a pack of preening pooches and try and sniff out a jackpot in A Bark in the Park, a dog-themed slot from Genesis Gaming. The chief attraction in this 5 reel, 4 row, 1,024 ways to win slot is the bonus round that awards up to 40 free spins complete with wild multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 64x. Stakes start at 40p per spin, rising to £20.
The design in A Bark in the Park is nicely done – a park lined with blossom trees forms the backdrop to the reels which include lower value A to 9 playing cards plus a quartet of doggies. We’re not really experts on dog breeds so we’ll just say that the brown dog with the magnificent bouffant hair is the most rewarding, paying 7.5 times your total stake if you land 5 of them on adjacent reels.
The pile of dog leads is the wild – it replaces all other symbols with the exception of the scatter. The paw print is that scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 8, 15 or 20 free spins. You’ll also trouser a bonus payout worth 2, 10 or 20 times your stake.
The wilds in the feature can create some extra magic thanks to the multipliers which are attached – these wilds land on the middle 3 reels only and boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 4x. If more than 1 wild lands on the same free spin, the multiplier values are combined.
For example, a 2x wild on reel 2 and a 4x wild on reel 3 would boost all payouts on that free spin by 8x. What you’ll be hoping to see is a trifecta of 4x wilds which will boost your payout by 64x! You can land more free spins here too – 2 scatters add 5 free spins to the total. 3, 4 or 5 award another 8, 15 or 20.
Just like the developer’s Rich Panda slot, the real potential thrills in A Bark in the Park come via the bonus round. The design is nice and crisp too and has a slight Asian feel courtesy of the backing track. It all comes together rather well. A Bark in the Park is another entertaining offering from Genesis Gaming. Trigger the free spins then combine the multipliers and this doggie adventure could turn into a real walk in the park.
