The Dog House Megaways Slot Game Background
The Dog House Megaways proves that Pragmatic Play is as comfortable working within the canine theme as the studio is within the aquatic genre. The slot game is the middle part of a trilogy that includes The Dog House and the recently released The Dog House Multihold. Pragmatic Play was looking for a candidate to revamp by adding the Megaways engine, and they settled on their popular online slot from 2019. The result is a slot that hasn’t changed too much in terms of visual presentation but is transformed thanks to the incorporation of the Megaways engine.
The Dog House Megaways Game Design
The Dog House Megaways is a 6-reel online casino game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. The slot also offers a maximum of 117,649 active paylines and a potential maximum payout of 12,305x the stake. Unlike most Megaways slots, The Dog House Megaways doesn’t have an extra horizontal reel that sits above or below the main game grid.
The slot takes place in a leafy suburban setting; the screen shows the titular dog house on a green lawn with winding paths and a white picket fence. On either side of the dog house are two small plants. Also visible are a couple of suburban houses, behind which are tall trees whose leaves blow in the wind. Above sits the blue, cloud-covered sky. Time is divided between day and night depending on whether you’re in the base game or the Free Spins feature. With the latter, the sky is filled with stars, while the two small plants have grown to reach the roof of the dog house.
The game grid is set in the titular dog house, while the reels contain playing card symbols, accessories, and the canines themselves. The game logo sits off-center at the top of the game grid, while the Megaways counter is just to the right of this. At night (during the Free Spins round) the game logo moves closer to the top center of the game grid to make way for a Free Spins counter to its immediate left.
The Dog House Megaways soundtrack features an upbeat (and sometimes almost whimsical) jazz-inspired tune, accompanied by a whistling tune and the sounds of barking dogs, that fits well with the slot’s stylized and colorful visual presentation.
The Dog House Megaways Mobile
The Dog House Megaways can be played on desktops, tablets, and mobile platforms like Android and Apple. All you need is a stable internet connection or mobile data. Players can also download the Lottomart Lottomart app for the best experience possible.
The Dog House Megaways Slot Symbols
The lowest-paying symbols on the paytable are inevitably the royal playing cards. Each number/letter has a distinct value for 6-of-a-kind on the reels. The 10 and J cards have a payout of 1x the stake, while the Q, K, and A symbols have a higher value of 2x the stake.
Bone and dog collar accessories next, and these symbols have a payout of 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind.
The dachshund has the lowest payout out of all the canines, with a payout of 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind, with the pug close on its heels with 4x the stake. Next in line is the Shih Tzu with a payout of 6x the stake for 6-of-a-kind too. The highest-paying canine symbol is the Rottweiler, with a payout of 15x the stake.
No self-respecting slot would be without its bonus symbols, and The Dog House Megaways is no exception. The slot’s Scatter symbol is a bejeweled paw print on a golden ring that awards a certain number of Free Spins depending on the number that land on the reels. The Wild symbol, represented by a dog kennel, appears only on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, substituting for all paying symbols when it does. The Wild symbol can also have a random multiplier of 2x or 3x, and if more than one Wild is involved in a winning combination, their multipliers multiply each other.
The Dog House Megaways Bonus Features
Pragmatic Play has packed a slew of exciting bonus features into The Dog House Megaways!
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins feature is The Dog House Megaways’ main bonus round, and the slot requires that players land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger it. Two options are available at the start of the feature.Sticky Wilds Free Spins
The number of initial free spins depends on the number of Scatter symbols that triggered it.
- 3 Scatter symbols = 7 Free Spins + 2 - 7 sticky Wilds on each reel.
- 4 Scatter symbols = 12 Free Spins + 2 - 7 sticky Wilds on each reel.
- 5 Scatter symbols = 15 Free Spins + 2 - 7 sticky Wilds on each reel.
- 6 Scatter symbols = 20 Free Spins + 3 - 7 sticky Wilds on each reel.
Any Wild symbol that lands on the reels during the feature takes on a random 2x, 3x, or 4x multiplier, no matter its size. It also becomes sticky, remaining on the reels until the end of the bonus. Furthermore, it changes size to match the size of the reels throughout subsequent spins. Finally, the bonus round can be re-triggered.Raining Wilds Free Spins
As above, the number of initial free spins depends on the number of Scatter symbols that triggered it.
- 3 Scatter symbols = 15 Free Spins + up to 6 raining Wilds on each spin.
- 4 Scatter symbols = 18 Free Spins + up to 6 raining Wilds on each spin.
- 5 Scatter symbols = 25 Free Spins + up to 6 raining Wilds on each spin.
- 6 Scatter symbols = 30 Free Spins + up to 6 raining Wilds on each spin.
On each spin, up to 6 Wild symbols of any size can land on random positions on the reels, and each one can carry a 1x, 2x, or 3x multiplier. Unlike Sticky Wilds Free Spins, this bonus round cannot be re-triggered.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to a maximum of 117,649 ways to win.
