Ready for the Dive of Your Life
Hold your breath and dive straight away into the universe of Dolphin’s Luck. The game is taking place a few meters under the surface, just above a large coral reef. A few sunbeams are filtering from above, shining on the shells and seaweed stuck on the coral. The transparent reels are floating elegantly in the middle, sandwiched in between 2 command bars.
Dolphin’s Luck is not the first underwater slot game that we have had to test so far, far from it. That being said, this Booming Games creation has a very decent yet extremely classic look for this specific genre. You won’t see any shipwreck or ancient ruins pop on the screen to add a bit of mystery to the game, which feels a bit like a missed opportunity.
Dolphin’s Luck features 5 reels and 20 paylines in total, which should accommodate most gamblers out there. The volatility is average, and you can adjust your settings easily with the arrow buttons under the reels. The betting range starts at 0.60 and goes up to 60 credits per turn, which is a bit small but classic for a Booming Games slot. The usual max bet and autoplay options are still there, with a gamble switch that you can use after a win to get a chance to double up your reward instantly.
We were able to score all sorts of cash rewards in Dolphin’s Luck, thanks to the game’s average variance. The card icons are followed by tropical fish, lobsters and seashells on the paytable, with a very generous top prize of x1500. Look closely and you will notice that even the most common symbols of Dolphin’s Luck are fairly generous, which makes the game much more interesting all of a sudden.
Even More Ways to Win Big
The final two symbols of Dolphin’s Luck have some classic but very rewarding effects. The dolphin, for example, is a scatter than can pay up to x300 regardless of its position on the screen. Each combination of 3 or more scatters also trigger a bonus of 10 free spins, playable immediately and through which your winning possibilities will grow even bigger.
The seahorse plays the role of the wild, ready to replace the other symbols on the reels. Seahorses cannot replace scatters, but a combination of 5 of them can unlock an astonishing x20,000 super jackpot. Do not let the small size of the seahorse distract you, this tiny animal is by far the most important of the entire game.
Deep Blue Sea
As mentioned before, underwater slot games usually have some sort of connection with lost civilisations or forgotten mysteries. In Atlantis Treasure from Mazooma, for instance, you get to explore the ruins of the mythical island to win both free spins and some generous multipliers, in a graphic environment reminiscent of Dolphin’s Luck.
The ocean can also be dangerous, especially if you are brave enough to try your luck on the reels of Eye Of The Kraken by Play’n Go. With a 3×3 layout and only 8 paylines to bet on, you are in for a real challenge. You will notice a similar bonus feature as in Dolphin’s Luck, though.
Always Look Beneath the Surface
Dolphin’s Luck started off rather classically, but a more thorough examination revealed all of the game’s potential. Even the basic rewards are generous, not to mention an efficient free spin mode and a very alluring jackpot just at your fingertips.
In a nutshell, Dolphin’s Luck is much more than what it may seem at first. This might actually be one of the most rewarding slots from Booming Games, and certainly one that we would recommend any player out there to check out. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the seahorses, if you are aiming for the jackpot.
