Diamond Dogs Slot
Diamond Dogs is not a brand new title, but developers at NetEnt have apparently tried their best to portray a laughable, really absurd theme in the best way possible. The game has crisp, high-quality graphics, great bonus features, as well as symbols that are entirely inspired by the life of the rich and the famous in the dog world. The reels are set against a dark background in a golden frame adorned with diamonds, crowns, trophies, and golden dog collars. The symbols are just as luxurious and the golden bowl full of steak or the beach dog house are certainly part of the life every pup dreams of. There is a funny disco music in the background, as well as dog barks that add to the entertainment side of the game.
Players can enable as many of the 25 lines as they wish and wager up to 4 coins on each of them. Several coin denominations are also available from 0.01 to 0.50 credits, while the maximum bet per spin stands at 50.00 credits.
There is a nice variety of themed symbols that appear on the typical 5×3 reel grid. They include a rawhide bone, several steaks served in a golden bowl with two glasses of champaign, a VIP fire hydrant, and a beach kennel with a cushion, a swimming pool and a palm tree. Several playing cards shining with gold and precious stones make up the low-value symbols.
The first special symbol is the image of a paparazzi dog which serves as a bonus-triggering icon. It does not complete combinations on its own, but whenever 3 or more paparazzi dogs appear on an active bet line, they activate the bonus game. There is also a Scatter symbol, which is represented as a sweet chihuahua lady with the power to award lucky players with free spins. Those who get 2 or more chihuahuas anywhere on the reels win up to 100 s their total bet.
Another dog character functions as the Wild symbol in the game, substituting for all regular icons in winning combinations. This is an image of a hip-hop boxer with a golden chain on the neck and a do-rag on the head. The Wild is also the highest paying symbol, bringing a jackpot of 10,000 coins when 5 boxers appear on an active line.
Bonus Games and Features
Players who get at least 3 chihuahuas scattered on the reels are awarded 10 free spins, along with the respective payout for the Scatter combination. Of course, the number of active lines and the bet from the triggering round are used for these automated free spins. The spins can be re-triggered but even better, the winnings generated from them are tripled.
There is a funny bonus game which is activated when 3 or more paparazzi symbols land on an active bet line, starting from the leftmost reel. Players are transported on the red carpet where the most famous dogs are posing for photographs. You need to pick celebrities for the paparazzi to take photos of and each posh dog character brings a random cash prize. The bonus game ends when a photo turns out to be blurred with a paw print on it.
