The Dog House Dog or Alive Slot review

A classic Western adventure with a canine twist, Pragmatic Play proudly presents The Dog House Dog or Alive. Not to be confused with The Dog House, The Dog House Dog or Alive takes place in a traditional dusty town as opposed to a kennel, and it has a more of a tongue-in-cheek feel about it.

Taking place on a 5x3 grid complete with 20 paylines, some distinct symbols pop up in the slot, including bones, collars, and the dog squad.

The gameplay is quite simple, as you need to land 3, 4, or 5 matching symbols from left to right across any payline to form a win.

Sitting to the side of the reels is the Sheriff Rottweiler, who is the highest-paying symbol, and you can land a payout worth 37.5x your stake if you can capture five-of-a-kind. But the Sheriff Badge represents the Wild, so it will substitute for all other paying symbols, except for the Scatter.

With a default RTP setting of 96.52%, putting it above the average return rate of 96%, The Dog House Dog or Alive is highly volatile. Oh, and there is a maximum win amount of 10000x your bet for players to tuck into.

The Dog House Dog or Alive Bonuses and Free Spins

The Dog House Dog or Alive has a couple of treats for players to gorge on, so let’s assess them in more detail below.

Multiplier Feature

  • The Sheriff Badge is the Wild and substitutes for other paying symbols.
  • When it appears on any of the 3 middle reels and forms part of a win, the Multiplier Feature will be activated.
  • Containing a random 2x or 3x multiplier, the multiplier will be applied to each winning combination the wild is a part of.
  • If multiplier wilds are part of the same win, the multiplier values will then be added together.
  • If 3 Wilds appear across a payline, they can lead to a 9x multiplier.

Free Spins Feature

  • The Free Spins Feature can be played when you land the Safe Bonus Scatter symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5 during a base game spin.
  • You could pocket a 5x bet payout before the free spins begin.
  • A 3x3 grid will then spin automatically to show the number of free spins available in each position.
  • Each position will reveal between 1 and 3 free spins, so initially, you can receive up to 27 free spins.
  • Once locked in, the Sheriff Badge Wilds on the 3 middle reels will be sticky.

Play The Dog House Dog or Alive for Free

The Dog House Dog or Alive seems to have been inspired by the NetEnt cult classic Dead or Alive 2, even if the latter has a higher RTP.

Anyway, The Dog House Dog or Alive provides fun and simple gameplay, working great on mobile devices. But before you dive in at the deep end and compete for real money, give this game a go in demo mode first.
