Most of the big casino game developers have released a slot game about dolphins. Dolphins are one of everyone’s favourite animals, and most people enjoy playing a game based on dolphins and their antics. Dolphin Reef is by NextgGen and is a light hearted slot filled with cute graphics.
Behind the reels there is a background of the ocean, dark blue with bubbles all over. The light comes through faintly from above, and the reels are framed by seaweed. You will see lots of the underwater inhabitants. There are dolphins of course, and a sea turtle, clown fish, seahorse and starfish. There are also the classic playing card symbols, from ten through to the ace, which represent the lower value symbols. NextgGen has provided Dolphin Reef with the customary five reels, and twenty pay lines.
The Dolphin Wild Has Unusual Options
The Wild is the smiling Dolphin, and as such can replace any other symbol to form a winning combination. What is unusual about this feature is that the Dolphin can replace the Scatter as well, to complete the winning line. The Scatter symbol is a Treasure Chest. The Dolphin also takes the place of a bonus symbol, and will activate the free spins round.
The Dolphin Wild does not pay for symbols appearing on a reel, but the Scatter symbol in Dolphin Reef does offer payouts. If you land at least three Treasure Chests in any position on any reel, and you will receive a cash reward. If you find five Scatters together you will earn one hundred times your initial wager.
Dolphins Unlock the Free Spins Round
You will need to land the happy Dolphin Wild on the second and fourth reel to trigger the free spins bonus. In fact the Dolphin only appears on those two reels. You will receive five free spins, but the second and fourth reels will expand until the entire reels are wild, and they will hold that position until the end of the free spin s round. The first, third and fifth reels will continue to spin throughout the round. You will get five respins on the rest of the reels. Good wins are pretty much guaranteed with expanded wilds on two reels, as you will have at least four matching symbols.
There is an attractive animation in Dolphin Reef, where the Dolphins leap and dive between the two wild reels, which are actually two pools of sea.
Dolphin Reef offers players the option of using the Gamble button at the bottom of the screen. After every win, you can activate this feature. You have to guess the colour of the next random playing card, and a correct guess will earn you double your winnings to date. You can try another guess, and try to predict the suit of that card. A correct guess will quadruple your earnings. You have the choice of trying this gamble five times.
You can play this game for free at most online casinos, until you feel you would like to wager real money. Dolphin Reef is a multi line and multi coin game, and offers players a great jackpot. Dolphin Reef is a slots machines with NZ dollars game that will suit all players, whatever their level of expertise, and the neat little twist in the free spins round will keep it interesting.
