The Dog House Megaways
One of the three variations of the original title The Dog House (along with Multihold and Dice show), the slot machine The Dog House Megaways invites players to new joyful sessions with man's best friends. With a cheerful soundtrack, barking sound effects, and a spring backdrop behind the large doghouse, Pragmatic Play has added the spice of the Megaways feature. This means that now there are up to 117,649 different ways to win on the 6 reels of this title with a theoretical RTP of 96.5% and high volatility.
The icons of playing cards (10, J, Q, K, A), the bone, the leash collar, and the four different dogs pay in various amounts proportionate to the bet, which can range from 0.2 to 100 euros. They must appear in groups of 3 to 5 identical symbols on contiguous reels, starting from the left reel. The golden kennel icon is the wild. It only appears on reels 2 to 5 and can replace all the aforementioned symbols in a combination, with an added random multiplier of 2x or 3x. The multipliers are combined in case two or more wilds appear, which can significantly boost a player's potential winnings.
The gold and gemstone paw print, marked Bonus, is the scatter symbol. Get 3 to 6 of them to appear simultaneously on the screen to trigger a choice of two free spin rounds. The Sticky Wilds feature awards between 2 and 7 fixed wilds on each reel for 7 to 20 free spins, while during the 15 to 30 free spins of the Raining Wilds feature, up to 6 wilds can rain down on each spin. Whichever you choose, each wild will deliver a random multiplier of 1x, 2x, or 3x. Thanks to the bonus buy option, you can also manually trigger one of the bonus rounds for 100 times your bet, knowing that you can win more than 12,000 times the amount wagered.
Panda’s Fortune 2
The sequel to the famous slot machine Panda's Fortune immerses us in Asian culture, at the edge of a forest lined with dwellings and temples, and overlooked by mountains in the background. The intricately designed icons on the 5 reels are stunning, especially the animal ones (lion, fish, frog, butterfly), as well as the tree in a vase and the playing card symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, A). If you bet between 0.25 and 125 euros, they pay in combinations of 3 to 5 identical symbols, across 25 lines starting from the far left on adjacent reels, with soothing background music.
The panda with bamboo leaves in its mouth is the wild that can substitute for the aforementioned icons on reels 2 to 5. Things get interesting when any of these symbols appear in a golden version in a winning combination, as it randomly awards a prize ranging from 1x to 4,998x the placed bet. The shiny yin-yang ball is the bonus symbol, triggering a series of 12 free spins, which can be extended with an additional 8 free spins if 3 more appear simultaneously on the screen. If a golden icon appears, its position will only host golden icons during this bonus round, with the potential winnings involved.
In addition to its high volatility and theoretical RTP of 96.5%, other attractions of Panda’s Fortune 2 from Pragmatic Play are its three fixed jackpots, Minor, Major, and Grand, which can respectively reward up to 1,000x, 2,500x, and 5,000x the initial bet.
Wolf Gold experienced tremendous success upon its release in 2017. In this 5-reel, 25-payline slot machine with a theoretical RTP of 96%, Pragmatic Play invites you to a nocturnal gold rush. A magnificent starry sky illuminates the canyon where sound effects remind you that you are not alone. Eagle, horse, bison, and puma accompany the traditional J, Q, K, A, paying proportionally to your bet (0.25 to 125 euros) if 3 to 5 identical ones appear on contiguous reels, starting from the left reel. The jackpots here are 30x (Mini), 100x (Major), and 1,000x (Mega) the initial bet.
The great wolf's head acts as a wild, offering its own payouts while potentially substituting for the aforementioned icons. The canyon icon marked SCATTER is the scatter symbol that only appears on reels 1, 3, and 5, with a payout of 1x the bet and a series of 5 free spins that can be extended by +3 if you get at least 3 simultaneously on the screen. During the free spins, the entirety of reels 2, 3, and 4 is combined into a single giant symbol, and moon icons may appear, with values from 1x to 100x the bet or the amount of one of the 3 jackpots.
The simultaneous appearance of 6 moon icons triggers the Money Respin feature. A series of 3 respins is then launched, reset each time a moon lands on the screen. Each moon that appears remains fixed until the end of the series, which also occurs when the screen is filled. All the moon values are then added up and awarded, and if there are 15, you also win the Mega jackpot.
John Hunter and the Quest for Bermuda Riches
John Hunter and the Quest for Bermuda Riches is part of the John and Jane Hunter series, which includes no fewer than 7 other titles. This time, Pragmatic Play's iconic adventurer takes us in front of a waterfall on a hidden island in the Bermuda Triangle, where he intends to find the tremendous treasure accumulated over centuries by lost ships and planes. With a bet range of 0.2 to 100 euros, you too can try to win up to 5,000 times your stake on this high volatility slot machine with a 96.3% RTP.
The base game symbols include gemstone-encrusted spades, diamonds, clubs, and hearts, as well as a spyglass, an emerald-studded chalice, a signet ring, and variable-value gold crates, paying various amounts for 5 to 15 identical symbols, connected horizontally and/or vertically. Winning combinations disappear to make way for new symbols, which can also provide wins. The gold totem with rubies and marked WILD is the wild symbol that can replace all the aforementioned symbols.
As for the scatter symbol, it's John Hunter himself, and if he appears simultaneously 3 to 7 times, you win between 3x and 100x your bet, in addition to launching the free spins feature. During 12 free spins, extendable by +5 for each set of 3 scatter symbols obtained, several symbols offer rewards. First, the gold crates will have a value from 1x to 35x the bet. Next, “Collect” icons represented by closed chests allow you to collect all crates on screen (circled in white metal), add value to them (circled in gold with a +), apply a multiplier (circled in purple with an x), or increase their number on the screen, all before collecting them.
There is also a “cursed” version of the wild, presented on a dark and glowing red background. Its appearance triggers either normal wilds or the application of a 2x multiplier to any win it helps to create. Finally, the free spins feature can be manually triggered for 100 times the initial bet.
Gates of Olympus
Gates of Olympus has established itself as one of the flagship titles in Pragmatic Play's portfolio since its release in 2021. This slot machine with a 96.5% RTP and high variance sets us on the steps of Mount Olympus, where Zeus himself requires between 0.2 and 100 euros to try to win up to 5,000 times our bet. The gold-set polygonal precious stones, as well as the goblet, ring, hourglass, and diadem, pay in various amounts if 8 to 12 of them appear on the screen. The ones circled with little wings grant win multipliers ranging from 2x to 500x.
Winning combinations disappear to make way for other paying sequences. The Zeus icon is the scatter symbol which, in addition to paying for 4 to 6 simultaneous appearances, triggers a round of 15 free spins (extendable by +5 for 3 simultaneous Zeus) during which multipliers accumulate and apply to all wins obtained.
Zeus provides 2 of his powers, which, however, cannot be used simultaneously. The first allows manually activating the 15 free spins for 100 times the bet, while the second, called Ante Bet, takes 25% of the bet to double the chances of triggering free spins, also increasing the number of scatter symbols that appear.
