Dog lovers will definitely appreciate this 25-line, dog-themed slot, which Microgaming released in June 2015. Players cannot help but feel tickled at the sight of well-dressed dogs checking into an old hotel. Set against the backdrop of an ancient, well-lit inn, the slot’s reels feature symbols of high-value cards and dogs smoking pipes and cigars.
The fixed payouts are on the low side, but that won’t disappoint players because the free spins round can yield as much as 110,000 coins. Packed with bonus features such as free games, the Hound Hotel Bonus, super stacked wild symbols, and dashing wild symbols, Hound Hotel slot can never fail to thrill, entertain, and reward.
Hound Hotel is a dog-themed slot with a difference. In fact, Microgaming appears to be the first provider to create a game based on a hotel for dogs. The provider has made the symbols cartoonish and has thrown in a few animations too. Although the slot has charming ambience music and sound effects, players can turn them off if the sound annoys them.
Players will have to hunt around for the Pays button, which is located to the right of the reels. Clicking on this button opens the game’s payout structure. The slot has fixed paylines and no bet levels, but players can adjust their bet size to anywhere in the range of 0.25 to 37.50 by clicking on the plus or minus symbols on the Bet button. Once players have adjusted their bet size, they can set the reels spinning by hitting the Spin button.
Players can alter the settings to customize their gaming experience, learn the game rules by clicking on the Help button, and view the game stats whenever they wish. The game is available in the real money as well as demo version. There is also an autoplay feature that enables players to set the reels to spin automatically for a certain number of spins.
Hound Hotel comes with a load of bonus features, such as stacked wilds, dashing wilds, wild reels, expanding wilds, super stacked wilds, bonus game, free spins, and multipliers. Players stand the chance of winning up to 110,000 coins in the free spins feature alone.
The wildcard is the Hound Hotel symbol, which can not only substitute for all other symbols except scatters, but also appear stacked when the base game is played. The payouts for the Hound Hotel Wild are disappointingly low. Players get paid 50 coins, 15 coins, and 6 coins for landing combinations of five, four, and three Hound Hotel Wild symbols, respectively.
The dashing wild is a simple icon with WILD written on it. If players do not win any prize during a paid spin, dashing wild symbols can appear at random anywhere on the reels and give players another chance to win.
There is also a scatter symbol, which not only helps players unlock the bonus pick-and-choose game, but also rewards them with charming scatter prizes. If players land combinations of two, three, four, or five scatters anywhere on the reels, they will get prizes of 2.50 coins, 5 coins, 50 coins, and 250 coins, respectively.
If players land three, four, or five scatters anywhere on the reels, the Hound Bonus Game gets activated. This pick-and-choose type of game prompts players to select a door on the first, second, or third floor to get a special wild feature, a multiplier value, and a number of free spins. Players can therefore get an expanding wild, super stacked wilds, or expanding reels while playing their free spins. In addition, a split wild symbol appears during the free spins round, enabling players to create six-of-a-kind combinations and win double the prize of the five-of-a-kind combinations.
The most lucrative symbols in Hound Hotel are the Hound Hotel wild, the dashing WILD, and the Dog Waiter scatter, along with the special expanding wilds and split wilds that appear in the bonus round.
The thematic symbols and the high-value cards have prizes to pay, but not as much as players would like. The top fixed prizes that players can win for a thematic dog symbol and a high-value card symbol are 45 coins and 12.5 coins, respectively.
