Play ‘N Go’s Wildhound Derby Slot

The Wildhound Derby slot comes with 5 reels, 4 rows and 30 paylines. Powered by Play ‘N Go, it caters to all budgets as you can spin away from 10p to £100 per spin (on all devices). With an RTP of 96.93%, this high variance game has a dog racing theme.

H2: Wildhound Derby Theme/Symbols

The Wildhound Derby slot has a British dog racing theme and is set within a dog track and takes you to the heart of the action. Simply designed, symbols include A, K, Q and J royals as well as betting slips, dog track tickets, winner’s ribbons and wads of cash. The latter is the most rewarding symbol by far giving you 4, 12 or 100 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Winning combinations are formed by getting 3 or more matching identical symbols on a payline – starting from reel 1 (i.e. so on reels 1, 2 and 3). There’s a regular wild symbol, the Winner’s Cup, which replaces all symbol excluding the other wilds (more on that below) – they wild also pays 4, 12 or 100 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

H2: 4 wild symbols

Wildhound Derby benefits from 4 other wild symbols – you’ll see racing dogs Braveheart, Daring Dex, Beadle’s Teabag and Oh My Dog. All these wilds appear only on the 5th and last reel in the base game. They act as regular wilds replacing standard symbols.

H2: Dog Race feature

If you land 4 wild dog symbols on reel 5, you’ll trigger the Dog Race feature – you then choose 1 of the 4 wild dogs as the hopeful winner of the race. This free spins feature will begin with all dog wilds beginning the race on reel 5 – you’ll see a Race Indicator to the left of the reel set.

The free spins then commence – each of the 4 rows on the indicator will also spin with each free spin and could give you a Golden Hare on 1 or more of the rows. If a Golden Hare lands on a row, the corresponding dog wild moves forward – the sounds are pretty good as you hear the crowd cheering as they egg on the dogs to cross the finish line.

The free spins keep on coming until 1 of the dogs moves past the 1st reel and wins the race. If your chosen dog doesn’t win, you’ll collect all winnings from the free spins. If your chosen dog comes out on top, you’ll be taken to the Winner’s Wheel feature.

Winner’s Wheel feature

As mentioned, the Winner’s Wheel feature is played if your dog wins the race in the free spins feature. Here, you get to spin a bonus wheel where a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 15x can be won. This is then applied to the total winnings from the free spins!

Wildhound Derby thoughts

The Wildhound Derby slot is quite simple to look at but it is unique in its dog racing theme. The gameplay focuses on the free spins with the potential 15x multiplier in the Winner’s Wheel feature the main draw. Highly volatile, you can win up to 15,000 times your stake on each free spin with the 15x multiplier.

The maximum win is 100 x stake from 5 wilds or wads of cash symbols – if you filled the reels with these symbols, you’d pocket 1,000 x stake. However, the 15x multiplier would take your potential wins to 15,000 x stake which is the biggest payout so far from Play ‘N Go.

With a high RTP of 96.93%, Wildhound Derby is different in terms of theme – the gameplay is exciting but it does rate 10/10 in terms of variance so be careful. If you like dog racing, Playtech’s Ascot: Sporting Legends slot should appeal and comes with good bonus features as well as progressive jackpots.
