Canine Carnage Review
When you think of animal slots and dogs, you tend to think of cutesy animals that you just want to cuddle. Trust us when we say the animals in Canine Carnage are not animals that you want to mess with.
Created by Play'n GO, Canine Carnage combines the reality of Mad Max and adds in dogs. It's a bizarre mix that strangely works and will definitely turn heads at slot sites.
Keeping it simple, this slot contains multipliers, instant prizes and bonus rounds leading to wins that will leave you barking for joy! It's safe to say that there is no slot quite like Canine Carnage.
As the slot opens up, you'll notice a punk Corgi driving a big truck throughout the desert. In the distance, there is a barren wasteland surrounded by despair but that is not stopping these dogs.
The vehicle being driven by the dog is a modified truck filled with spikes and other weapons. It's definitely inspired by Mad Max and other dystopian films which is an interesting theme for an animal slot.
All the symbols on the reels relate to dogs and the theme with robot pugs and warrior dachshunds. You will certainly be intrigued by the visuals of this slot and we just wished that there was an opening cutscene or a story explaining the universe as it's so interesting.
The music in this slot is an upbeat techno score that plays throughout spins. It's so befitting for the slot and provides a relevant tempo for the gameplay. It only gets better throughout the bonus rounds and we just couldn't get enough.
Unfortunately, we found our experience with the gameplay was not as exciting as the visuals implied. There is not a huge amount going on in the base game and you'll be waiting for the bonus round.
Thankfully, when the bonus round does appear, this is where it gets truly memorable. This turned our mediocre experience into one filled with amazing wins!
Like most slots from Play'n GO, the menus can all be found at the bottom of the screen and are designed to fit the style of the slot. To get started, you'll have to set your bet level at the bottom of the screen and then click spin.
We were hopeful that the win potential for this slot would be as epic as the design and gameplay but that is not the case. Of course, the RTP is over the average which is always accepted but the maximum win is not on par with what we expected.
The biggest win in this slot is only 3,000x the stake which will not appeal to high rollers. Whilst this amount is achievable, you'll never be able to win anything over 3,000x the stake which may put off some people.
Canine Carnage is quite an adventure with mixed feelings throughout. For the most part, the slot is absolutely refreshing and provides players with a new type of animal slot that hasn't really been seen before.
We thought the design was excellent and the gameplay fit the game quite well. Our only concern was the low maximum win but this is not the end of the world. We can easily see this slot becoming a fan-favourite for casual players just looking for excitement.
Whilst there were elements that we didn't love about this slot, we can easily recommend it as one of the most creative slots in a long time and will certainly leave you smiling by the end of it.
