A new month heralds the release of new games and this month, Microgaming is serving us up a treat with two animal-themed slots. There’s Kitty Cabana, a feline spa based slot and its canine counterpart, the fabulous Hound Hotel.
Hound Hotel is a typical 5×3 reel slot from Microgaming that features 25 fixed paylines. Starting price for spins is just 0.25 which means it is in the price range for all players, but high roller players can play for significantly more if they prefer to do so.
The graphics are sumptuous with many breeds of dog personified and given human traits, there’s the portly St Bernard, a hat wearing Husky plus many more. There is also a cheeky Chihuahua, which also acts as the in game scatter symbol.
One of the main features of the game is the Dashing Wilds feature, which can be randomly triggered on any non-winning base game or bonus round spin. When triggered, Wilds fly out across the reels and turn losing symbols wild, to create a winning payline, guaranteed.
The action then kicks up a notch when you land three or more of the Chihuahua scatter symbols to enter the fantastic Hound Hotel Bonus section. Here you will visit each of three floors, with a canine bellhop as your guide.
On each floor you pick from hidden prizes. On the first you’ll pick which one of five possible wild bonuses will apply on your free spins (Split Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Super-Stacked Wilds, Wild Reels and Super Wild Reels).
The second floor sees you pick a multiplier (from 1x up to 6x) and then on the third and final floor you can see how many free spins you select, with up to 30 available.
