Celebrating the life and works of one of country music’s most legendary performers, Dolly Parton is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot from Leander Games. It comes with floating extra wilds, free spins, a pick me round and a wheel of fortune style bonus. Best of all, the action plays out to a selection of Dolly’s biggest hits. Stakes range from 40p to £80 per spin.
Dolly Parton isn’t short on the features front – the first to look out for are the Butterfly Super Extra Wild feature. During any spin, the butterflies may fly over the screen, landing on reels 4 and 5 to turn those symbols into wilds.
Find 3 Bonus symbols (the gold disc) on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll trigger Dolly’s Wheel of Wealth Bonus feature – spin the wheel and you’ll be awarded 1 of 3 features:
First is the 9 to 5 Free Spins Bonus feature – here you’ll be awarded an initial 8 free spins. Keep an eye out for the extra sticky wilds which fall randomly on the reels. They will remain in that position for the remainder of the feature. Extra free games are on offer via the clock symbol.
The Heartbreak Express Bonus feature is a variation on the pick me round – you’ll be presented with a selection of suitcases. Pick them to reveal cash bonuses. Finding the collect brings the bonus to a close.
Finally there’s the Dolly’s Albums Bonus feature – spin the wheel which contains a selection of Dolly’s albums which in turn offer bonus multiplier prizes.
The base game offers some decent payouts too. Find Dolly’s signature in a five symbol combo and 500 coins await. Dolly herself is the wild. She can appear as an expanding stacked wild to fill up an entire reel. Other symbols include guitars, microphones and bright red lips. The visuals aren’t especially spectacular though.
The soundtrack on the other hand is rather excellent. There’s a jukebox feature, allowing you to spin the reels with Jolene, Backwoods Barbie, Heartbreak Express, 9 to 5, Applejack, Love is Like a Butterfly and Coat of Many Colours blasting out in the background.
Whether you like the Dolly Parton slot will probably come down to whether you’re a fan of her music. Even if country and western brings you out in hives, the decent array of features makes the Dolly Parton slot well worth a closer look. If you like slots based on music artists, there’s KISS Shout It Out Loud and Elvis The King Lives by WMS with Guns ‘N Roses by NetEnt coming in the near future.
