Man’s best friend takes centre stage in Wonder Hounds, a new doggie-themed slot from NextGen Gaming that has just gone on general release.
It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that delivers plenty of volatile action courtesy of a Free Games feature that awards up to 15 free spins with plenty of extra wilds. Visually, there’s nothing too flashy on offer here – set against a forest backdrop, you’ll see paw prints and the trio of Wonder Hounds spinning around the reels alongside the usual lower vale A to 10 symbols.
The 3 hounds all have a national theme – there’s Winchester, the dog from Blighty, who is dressed in tweeds and a deerstalker that would make Sherlock Holmes proud. He’s joined by a Chinese pooch called Jinse (which translates into English as Golden). The most lucrative dog is the pup called Ace who’s modelled on a WW2 American airman (yes, really).
At the end of any spin, Winchester, Jinse or Ace can all magically turn into a wild – up to 1 Wonderhound can become wild on each reel. These come in addition to the standard wilds and put a bit of bite into the base game. This is known as the Wonderhounds Gone Wild feature.
The main feature offering here is the Free Games feature which is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters. As well as a payout of 4, 15 or 100 times your stake, you’ll also receive 8, 12 or 15 free spins. Before the feature starts, between 1 and 15 wilds are added.
These will be locked in place throughout the feature, as will any other wilds that land during the feature! The 2 Wonder Hounds can also transform into wilds, just like in the base game.
If you’re thinking that a slot featuring cute looking puppies is a gentle, low variance game then think again. The bite from these doggies is just as fierce as the bark and the volatility is high. It can deliver wins of 6,000 times your total stake on each spin!
The key to success is the Free Games feature where a good haul of sticky wilds can deliver some terrific action – check out the Wonder Hounds slot review for more details. To see the features in action, watch the official YouTube trailer below:
