Dad’s Day In Slots
The central character of this Amaya designed slot is a dad who has been left at home with the baby. You can tell by the startled look on his face that he is not particularly happy about it and it’s clear from the symbols on the reels that it isn’t going too well. You’ll find the worried mother on the phone, a dog tearing clothes to shred, clothes streaming from a washing machine and a pot boiling over. Of course, you’ll also find a screaming baby and hopefully the bottled milk and the pacifier will calm the baby down some.
How to win on Dad’s Day In
The highest paying symbol in the entire game is the worried mother, the telephone in the picture clearly showing that this is a slot set many years ago. This symbol pays out a very impressive 6,000 coins for the maximum five in a row, significant more than any other in the game.
Next on the pay table, the dog has a maximum payout of 2,000 coins, while the washing machine and the vacuum cleaner both pay 400 coins. The other standard symbols are completed by the boiling pot, another telephone, a teddy, a rubber duck, the baby’s bottle and the pacifier, these paying between 200 and 100 coins for the full house of 5.
The startled looking dad is the wild symbol on the reels and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. As the wild, he will substitute for every other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter.
The final symbol on the reels is the crying baby, which acts as the scatter symbol. Land two or more across any of the reels and you’ll win an immediate scatter prize of up 100x your total stake, but more importantly perhaps when you land three scatters you’ll also enter the feature of the game.

This takes you to a second screen game set in the back garden of the house. The paving stones are set up in an oval pattern, which acts as the board in a board game. In the middle of the stones you’ll see a plastic dice roller and clicking this will reveal your first number. The baby will now crawl around the stones in a clockwise direction. While travelling around the board, the baby might disappear under a tunnel, which will certainly have the dad only more startled – although his horror is short lived as the baby will appear again shortly afterwards at the other end of the tunnel. Wherever the baby stops, you’ll either win a credit prize or win some free spins. The free spins are certainly worth it, as each of these is the subject of a 3x multiplier.
Design and Setup
The graphics at this slot are highly reminiscent of the 1950’s, the slightly pastel colors of the symbols appearing much as they would in advertisements of the time. These symbols are all nicely designed and look good against the plain white background of the reels. The backdrop to the slot is very 1950’s too, with three flying ducks on the wall, while a bright, spotted lampshade sits to the left. The actual reels are set within a TV screen, with a small black aerial atop the TV.
Like the majority of online slots, this game has 5 reels, with 3 symbols showing on each. There are a total of 30 win lines, but you can choose to play any number between 1 and 30. You’ll also choose the coin size, which ranges from just 1c per line, all the way up to $20. All in all this makes for a slot with a minimum total stake of just 1c and a maximum of $600 – certainly suitable for players at all bankroll levels.
Dad’s Day In is a slot that is certain to appeal to a great number of players. The 1950’s had a definite style of its own and this is replicated nicely on the reels to this slot. The game has a slightly comedic feel too, the hapless father struggling to keep the house running, while the gameplay is enjoyable too, never more so than in the feature. This might not be a slot that would win any awards, or that you’ll have in your top 5 list, but for a fun distraction, this certainly fits the bill.
