Looking at this game is fairly similar to looking at a fishtank (not that dolphins are fish of course, thanks Wikipedia). It has an underwater look with air bubbles making their way up to the top of the screen. You almost expect a Disney character to come along at any moment.
‘Dolphin Quest’ is a five-reel game with four rows of symbols and that extra row allows there to be an impressive 50 paylines hopefully crammed full of winning opportunities. In no way do you have to be playing all 50 of those paylines, how many you play is entirely your choice. Just go for one line if you wish or all 50, The coin range is from €0.01 to €1 and you can play up to five coins on each spin of the reels. The maximum stake is €250. simply choose a level you’re comfortable with and can afford to lose.
There’s a very aquatic theme to the symbols in this game and it’s not all about dolphins despite the game’s title. There are sea turtles, fighting fish, sea horses, stingrays, octopi, hermit crabs and of course some adorable dolphin symbols. All great to look at and there’s no playing card symbols for a change. Well I guess they’d end up a bit soaked under water wouldn’t they?
The Wildest Dolphin Around
The wild in this game is the Dolphin Quest logo. This plays a really important role in the game as it’s the perfect aid to get you some winning combinations. That’s because it can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combinations. The wild symbol is stacked so that means even more chance of cropping up and helping you get winning combinations. Five of the wild symbols on an active payline also pays out the jackpot. This pays 12500x your coin stake so could be as high as €12500.
It can sub for all the symbols in this game apart from the Golden Dolphin. Why not? Well that’s because the Golden Dolphin is the scatter symbol but it’s on double duty here. Not only is it a scatter but it also acts as a wild symbol. It’s not on all the reels though, just the second, third and fourth. As you’ll soon read it also plays an important role in triggering the bonus game.
There’s an autoplay feature here which is always important if you fancy a break from the screen. It can be set for between ten and 100 automated spins of the reels. If you want though it’s possible to set your own figure and make it stop when a certain balance is reached. Just use the control buttons, all of which are situated at the bottom of the screen.
This is a busy little game what with two wilds, a scatter and a bonus game. Don’t let what happens surprise you, do some research before playing the game for real. That simply means having some free games and also going through the paytable which is packed with useful information.
Keep an eye out for the Golden Dolphin scatter symbols. Three of those will get you into the bonus game. When that happens a new set of reels comes into play. Each position will have a prize amount and you simply press the stop button visible underneath the reels to find out how much you’ve won. This can be quite lucrative at times and the maximum amount you can win is €150.000.
Another great slot from Microgaming. It has a really attractive look to it and the soundtrack isn’t going to have you reaching for the mute button. You might not be able to actually as its soothing sound might just lull you to sleep. If it does you might wake up rich because there are some good wins available in this game.
