Dog Days Review
On the face of it, there is a lot going on and all of the various meters and prize ladders across the screen can seem a bit much as you first load up this slot. Dog Days also features 3 different bet types where you can improve your chances of triggering different parts of the game and this only adds to the onslaught of options. However, this might not be available in the UK.
Thankfully, this is one of those slots that starts to bed down pretty quickly and you soon get the hang of it.
There’s a happy tune playing along in the background to help you relax by the pool and watch those jewels fill up the dog pads. Plus, the developer has opted for some fairly standard arcade effects to highlight the reel spins and any wins you land too.
It all adds to the almost retro feel of this game that's blended with some decent modern modifiers. It's not a bad design effort and it certainly does a job. You can also pick this game up on Android and Apple mobiles as well.
Thanks to the collection meters throughout both the base game and free spins, you don't feel like you're desperate for a change of scenery at any point. Wild symbols also float around and wins can be found the whole way through. Having the Tasty Treats Collections activated throughout the free spins bonus is a good indicator that this will be the part of the show where the top payout might appear.
The volatility setting is medium for Dog Days and the max payout is a fairly modest 2,500x. The RTP sits perfectly at 96% and some areas outside the UK might also get to enjoy a hit rate of 42.93% thanks to the Gold Bet option.
Dog Days seems a little overly complicated and it sometimes felt like the developer tried to pack too much into a simple concept. For many slot fans, it's better to have too much than too little going on and this could be seen as a positive if that's the kind of game you like. You won't find earth-shattering payouts but you should see regular wins thanks to the medium volatility.
