Diamond Dogs Slot from NetEnt
If you happen to follow a number of female celebrities on social media, you’ll notice that one particular type of accessory for these famous ladies is growing all the time – the pampered dog. This is usually a small dog which will be carried in a hand bag, and this NetEnt designed slot focuses on these celebrity canines.
This slot features three dogs, each of which plays a major role – being the wild, the bonus or the scatter symbol respectively.
You’ll also find dog bones with ribbons and bows, a steak in a diamond and gold bowl, a kennel with a pool attached and a VIP fire hydrant which the dog will raise one leg to!
How to Win on Diamond Dogs
The highest paying symbol in the Diamond Dogs casino game is a large growling black dog and landing 5 in a row will see 10,000 coins coming your way, with 2000 coins for just 4. This symbol is also the wild one, meaning it will substitute for any other symbols apart from the bonus or scatter, ensuring additional wins. Whenever it is involved in a win, you’ll see him do a little dance too.
The luxury kennel is next on the pay table and pays 600 coins, while both the fire hydrant and the steak pay 240 coins, while the dog bone has a payout of 120 coins. The standard symbols are completed by dog tags, which are once again gold and encrusted with diamonds, each complete with the A, K, Q or J playing card symbols.
Dog Show: The Diamond Dogs Slot Features
A paparazzi style dog complete with a camera is the bonus symbol and to activate the bonus feature you’ll need to land three or more of these from left to right on a win line. The bonus feature in Diamond Dogs slot sees you taken away from the reels to a red carpet where you’ll see a series of 12 posing dogs. You’ll now click on each one, which will hopefully reveal a Polaroid style picture with an immediate payout amount. You’ll keep taking pictures until one of the pictures has a paw print smudge, at which point this entertaining bonus round is over.
The second feature is the free spins bonus round, which is activated by the Chihuahua complete with sun glasses. You’ll receive an immediate scatter payout for landing two or more across any of the reels (starting at 2x your total stake for the minimum 2 all the way up to 100x your total stake for the maximum 5). However, 3, 4 or 5 scatters will also see you gain entry to the free spins bonus round. Every time you land a win during this feature the win amount will be the subject of a 3x multiplier, which can make it a profitable feature. Land three more scatters during the free spins and you’ll earn an additional 10 free spins.
Bling Design and Setup
There is no doubt that this slot is all about money. The reels are housed in a regal looking gold, with crowns and dog collars dotted around the outside. The symbols are all designed in a cartoon style, which adds a nice element of humor to the game. There are some small but entertaining animations when you hit wins with any of the dogs. One aspect of the game that particularly stands out is the high speed nature of the reels, these almost spinning at warp speed – and of course the overall trademark smooth NetEnt production. Every time you hit spin you hear a dog bark and this is joined by a nice range of sound effects overall. There is an easy listening type funky soundtrack in the background.
Like many of the NetEnt range, this slot is played out on the popular 5×3 reel configuration. The number of lines is optional, as you can play any number between 1 and 25, although the 25 lines are set as the default. Each line comes at the minimum cost of 1 credit, although you can change the bet level so that each line costs between 1 and 4 credits.
Diamond Dogs is a sideways take on the designer dog culture, and manages to keep things light and humorous, while emphasizing the great NetEnt game play. The design features a rich array of colorful symbols, with bling being the overriding theme. The bonus feature is very enjoyable, made even more so if you can avoid those paw prints for a prolonged period, while the free spins feature with the 3x multiplier gives you the potential for some bigger wins.
