Theme and Design
As mentioned above, the theme for the Dolphin Reef slot games is centred on the ocean and its wonderful inhabitants.
Behind the reels, the backdrop displays a warm watery scene at the bottom of the sea, with beams of light streaming in from the surface and ultimately illuminating the reels.
Below the reels players will find a single bar neatly and conveniently placed to ensure easy, effortless gameplay. The buttons in this bar can be used to check the paytable and game rules, set lines and bets per line, spin the reels and more.
Gameplay and Symbols
With regards to actual gameplay in Dolphin Reef, players have the option of playing between 1 and 20 different paylines, while bets range from 0.01 to 5.00 coins. Much like in all slots, the higher the bet the higher the reward.
Rewards are given to players that match symbols along an active payline, however, 3 or more symbols must appear and lines will pay from left to right only. The game consists of high-value, low-value and bonus symbols.
The low-value symbols are made up of playing card icons, including Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9, while the high-value symbols are made up of a seahorse, a starfish, a turtle and a tropical orange fish. Bonus symbols display a dolphin wild and a treasure chest scatter symbol.
Dolphin Reef Bonus Feature
Within the base game of the Dolphin Reef slot game, players have the opportunity to engage in a little extra fun and possibly earn bigger prizes with the free spins bonus feature.
The dolphin wild will only ever appear in the 2nd and the 4th reels, but when it so in a single spin it will activate the bonus feature. Players are then awarded just 5 free spins.
However small the free spins are, the wilds will expand to cover the entire reel and create a bigger chance at making winning combinations. What’s more, the dolphins will do a dive in between each spin to encourage players on to bigger and better prizes.
In addition to the bonus features mentioned above, Dolphin Reef gives players have a chance to gamble even further, and gamble their wins from any given winning combination.
Once a win has been achieved players can click the gamble button below the reels to be taken to a separate screen and guess the colour or suit of the next drawn card. If they determine the colour they could double their win, while guessing the suit of the card rewards quadruple their win.
