Dolphin’s Pearl Review
|Software||Novomatic group of companies|
Another slot from Novomatic, Dolphin’s Pearl is a 5-reel 10-payline slot designed to treat all lovers of the sea. The land version of this slot was so popular that Novomatic created a deluxe version to improve its fans’ playing experience even further.
This slot has plenty of rewarding features, such as the 15-free-spin mode and plenty of multipliers; but since the game, like other Novomatic slots, is rather high-variance, triggering them will require plenty of patience and play. With an RTP of 96.17, it is easy to see why this game is so famous.
The slot is designed with an ocean theme, with graphics and animations that will take you to the depths to interact with all kinds of exotic sea creatures. This game has the underwater creatures as its symbol as well as the usually encountered high-value card symbols. The slot background is deep sea blue with coral and other sightly ocean scenery right at the bottom of the reels. The game’s goal is to gather as many high-value pearls as possible. The 3D graphics and animations on this game are satisfactory.
How to play Dolphin’s Pearl
The minimum bet amount is 10p, while the maximum for the higher rollers is £100 per spin on all paylines. You can adjust the number of lines to bet on using the lines +/- options, and your coin size on the Bet+/- button. Set the reels in motion with the ‘Start’ button and use ‘Autoplay’ to turn the reels automatically.
Symbols and bonuses to look out for:
The most valuable symbol to cross your fingers for here is the dolphin; if you land 5 dolphins on an active payline, you get an incredible 900x multiplier on your stake! Four dolphins will win you a 250x stake multiplier. The other symbol worth lots of cash is the pearl-bearing oyster; 5 of these on your reels will earn you 500 times your total stake.
There is also a combination of winning symbols made by the stingray, dolphin, lobster, 9, and the oyster with a pearl. Only two of these on your reels will guarantee you a win, while the other symbols require at least three to make a winning line.
The dolphin symbol is wild; it comes with a 2x multiplier and can replace all other symbols but the oyster with a pearl. This oyster will be the scatter to look out for, and two of these will guarantee you a win.
If you land three oysters, you activate the free spins mode where you get a 15-free-spin award complete with a 3x multiplier of all your wins obtained in free mode. Getting three scatters during the free mode will also retrigger the free spins mode. If you land a winning combination with a wild symbol, your winnings are doubled.
There is also a gamble feature where you can choose whether to gamble your winnings or not after you land a winning combination. Here, you guess the color of the card that will be drawn, and if you guess wrong, you lose your winnings and go back to the base game.
Playing Dolphin’s Pearl provides an exciting gaming experience, especially since it is quite volatile. While it is incredibly difficult to trigger the bonuses, waiting will be worth your while.
