In this slot game you are searching for the eponymous blue dolphin, as this beautiful creature holds the key to the biggest prizes – a whopping 40,000 coins for matching five on an active payline.
But there is plenty of other stunning marine wildlife to check out too, including giant turtles (up to 30,000 coins for matching five), slippery squid (10,000 coins), lobsters (16,000 coins) and clown fish (30,000 coins).
The playing card symbols are broken down into three categories:
A & K – Three pays 400, four pays 2000 and five pays 5000.
Q, J & 10 – Three pays 200, four pays 1000 and five pays 4000.
9 – Two pays 80, three pays 200, four pays 1000 and five pays 4000.
So as you can see, even matching two of the 9 card earns a payout that will help you to recoup some of your stake.
The scatter symbol in Blue Dolphin is the glittering Crown, which pays from 400 coins for matching two right up to a huge 100,000 coins for five. But, just as good as that, is the news that three or more of the Scattered Crowns rewards players with 15 free spins – very generous compared to other slot games of a similar niche. Within your Bonus Spins, more freebies can be re-triggered and all wins are subject to a 3x multiplier: happy days!
There’s never a bad time to see a dolphin having fun in its natural habitat and making that cute clicking sound, but in Blue Dolphin you will be over the moon when one of these swims onto your reels. This symbol is wild and will substitute for all others on your reels; this in itself helps to create some fantastic wins, and that joy is enhanced yet further with the knowledge that the dolphin symbol will double all wins in which it is a sub.
Wins pay only from left to right, and with just five paylines it is perhaps no surprise that the payouts are so generous!
The five reels boast three rows on each, and players are able to place their bets as they see fit. You can bet on each of the five paylines from two coins to 200, which results in a minimum bet of 10 coins and a maximum of 1000.
This is a classic Amatic slot game that utilises their famous gameboard; one that looks slightly retro by nature but which is simple to use and follow. The paylines are numbered 1-5 along the left and right hand sides of the screen, and you can see your balance and the amount you are betting in the boxes on either side of the board.
Then there’s the Auto Start button, which will spin at your current bet amount until you click on it again to stop it, the Bet button which enables you to change your stake per spin by clicking on it, and then there’s the Gamble feature; where you can attempt to double or quadruple each of your wins by guessing either the suit or colour of an upturned playing card (up to a maximum of three times). And that is pretty much all you need to know about Blue Dolphin!
The lack of paylines can often make Blue Dolphin feel slightly repetitive, and you may find yourself spinning the reels quite a few times before you strike it lucky. But once you do, the rewards are obvious, and a jackpot prize of 40,000 coins – which can be achieved just by matching five of the base symbols – is generous enough to entice players of all budgets and preferences.
