This online slot is light hearted and visually it excels being set within a lush green park with some truly sensational cartoon style graphics which feature the usual playing card symbols, 10 through to Ace, dog bowls and dog bones. There are also the three hounds Jinse, Ace and Winchester, out of these Ace is the highest paying symbol and will reward players with x14 of their stake when they land five across a pay line. There is also a wild that can replace all the other symbols except for the scatter and landing five of these will pay a generous x16 of the stake bet. There are two bonus features on offer in this game slot, the first is the Wonder Hounds Gone Wild which can be activated at random during the base game after any spin one or more Wonder Hounds can morph into a wild to provide more winning chances and additional fun! However, there is no doubt that Wonder Hounds is all about the free games feature and this is triggered when the player lands three of the paw print scatters anywhere on their reels.
Three, four or five scatters will reward the player with x4, x15 and x100 of their stake respectively and there are between 1 – 15 sticky wilds also added to the reels randomly at the start of this feature and these wilds remain stuck for the entire time the feature is active. If this is not enough, any other wild symbols that appear during the feature will also remain held in position and this is one feature where players really can land huge returns.
Even though Wonder Hounds does have the cute factor which may not be everyone’s ideal theme, it is a medium to high variance slot that provides players with the potential to land x6,000 of their stake on every free spin, something that will appeal to all players from the beginners to the experienced.
Personally, I found Wonder Hounds simple with entertaining graphics and a dynamic bonus feature. The way that players will win big on this slot machines is to be lucky and land several sticky wilds and then have additional wilds landing during the feature. It can be done with a little perseverance and there is no doubt that once players have tried out Wonder Hounds they will return again and again. Great theme, great fun and great features.
