We Check Out the Dog House a New High Variance “Multiplier Sticky Wild” Slot From Pragmatic Play!

The Dog House is a new online slot on the horizon from Pragmatic Play with a scheduled release date of the 9th May 2019. Videoslots Casino is our casino recommendation for Pragmatic Play slots and should have this playable on release day.

This a slot machine which could easily pass you by as the cartoon styled cutesy dog theme can be slightly deceiving as this is definitely a high variance release that is more likely to appeal to hardcore slot players and comes with a 5-star volatility rating.

The Dog House is a regular 5×3 reel 20 payline slot, there isn’t too many base game features to be aware of apart from the special Multiplier WIlds that are present on reels 2, 3 and 4 and these come in 2x and 3x ranges. The interesting part to these multiplier wilds is that the multipliers are added together if they are on the same payline which does give the potential for some very decent 5 of a kind base game wins.

The real excitement, however, is saved for the free spins bonus round where a variety of starting free spins is awarded on triggering and can vary from as low as 9 right up to 27 free spins. Add to this that the special Multiplier Wilds are now Sticky in the bonus round making this slot capable of some very nice wins indeed which you’ll see in the screenshots from our playtesting session.

Special Features

Multiplier Wilds

The Multiplier Wild symbols are only present on the middle three reels, when these land in view on the reels a multiplier of either 2x or 3x is applied to any wins, if there are multiple Wilds on a payline then the Multipliers values are added to each other.

Free Spins

The Free Spins round is triggered by landing 3 scatters which are present on reels 1, 3 and 5 only, you are then taken to a mini bonus game where a random number of free spins are awarded from a 3×3 grid of slots, the rewards in each section range from 1-3 making the total range of free spins being 9 right up to 27 free spins.

The same Multiplier Wilds are active during the bonus round but when they land in view on the reels they are held in place (Sticky Wilds) for the duration of the bonus round.

Overall Opinions

The Dog House slot was a very pleasant surprise, we weren’t expecting too much from this release when we saw it was styled with a cutesy cartoon theme, the volatility rating certainly got us interested though!

Whilst the base gameplay is fairly standard, the mini-bonus before the free spins adds some nice randomness to the free spins round, it’s also very difficult not to like bonuses where sticky wilds and in this case Sticky Multiplier Wilds are present.

In our playtests we had plenty of bonuses which were in the 50x-100x range, and as you can probably tell one insane bonus where we nearly reached a 1000x stake win. Whilst this slot doesn’t feel as super volatile as slots such as Dead or Alive it should certainly appeal to more hardcore players looking for those occasional insane wins.

Overall, well worth checking out if you like high variance and sticky wild slots!
