Dolphin King is a slot set at the base of the ocean floor, featuring a whole host of different sea creatures. However, there is little doubt that who is the boss – this title belongs to the Dolphin King himself. This delightful looking character is the top paying symbol in the game, acts as a multiplying wild and also activates the bonus feature – is there anything this guy doesn’t do?
The free spins bonus feature sees a 2x multiplier added to your numerous spins, while there is also a jackpot to be won too.
This deep sea themed slot is played out on the very popular 5×3 reel configuration and pays from left to right. With just nine win lines, this number is much smaller than you’ll find at many slots with a similar set up, each of these lines indicated by colorful boxes to the side of the reels. Players have the option of playing any number of lines between 1 and 9 and will multiply this number by the coin value for the total stake for each spin.
The highest paying standard symbol in the game is a clownfish, which will be familiar to many through the ‘Finding Nemo’ movie. Land five in a row of this symbol and you’ll pocket 1,500 coins, while a puffer fish is next on the pay table at 500 coins. A shellfish and a starfish complete the standard themed symbols are joined by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The Dolphin King himself acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for every other symbol in the game, giving the opportunity for many more wins. However, you have a nice added boost, as any time one wild or more does lead to a win, your total prize will be doubled, which is certainly a nice boost.
This wild is also quite easily the highest paying symbol in the game, worth an impressive 5,000 coins for hitting five in a row, more than three times any other win amount in the game. Even hitting four of these symbols in a row pays 1,000 coins, making this only behind the top prize for the clownfish.
The first of the bonus features is a free spins round, which involves the Dolphin King in activating it. If the King appears on reels 1 and 5 at the same time, you’ll now go ahead and enter the feature. The feature sees you awarded with an eye-catching 20 free spins. Any wins you achieve during these free spins are doubled, making this feature even better. You can also retrigger the feature at any time during the free spins, where you’ll see an additional 20 free spins added to your existing total.
Unusually, this game has a simple scatter symbol too, with no bonus feature as part of it. Hit 2 or more pearls anywhere on the reels and you’ll pick up a win, the maximum prize being 100x your stake for hitting all five.
The final bonus feature is the ‘Rapid Fire’ progressive jackpot. This jackpot can be won at any time, after a winning or losing spin. Although randomly awarded, it is a fact that the higher your stake level, the more chance you’ll have of winning it.
This Amaya designed slot is played out against the backdrop of the ocean floor, with reeds either side of the reels, while it looks like a band of pirates would have been disappointed at some point as there is a treasure chest full of pearls at the bottom of the ocean. The symbols on the reels are nicely designed, with the Dolphin King himself the stand out one, while the playing cards symbols are both colorful and bubbly. The sound effects could have been more in line with the theme, although when the Dolphin laughs when forming part of a win line, it will bring a smile to your face.
Dolphin King is a very enjoyable slot from Amaya. The underwater theme and the variety of symbols make for a nice-looking slot, while the gameplay has something of a unique quality. It’s unusual to find a symbol which is as dominant as the King in this game, so there is little doubt which symbol you want to be appearing on every reel. With a free spins bonus round with a good number of spins and a multiplier alongside a progressive jackpot, there is a lot to like about this slot.
