Dolphin Reef Slot Review
Dolphin Reef is a 5 reel, 20 line video slot found at Playtech casinos. As the name gives away the game has an undersea theme with wild dolphins, clown fish, turtles and treasure chests all appearing on the reels. The game has a 200 coin max bet and coin sizes starting at one cent.
The dolphin symbols are wild but only appear on the 2nd and 4th reels. This obviously means you cannot get five wilds but the dolphins have an extra job to do - they activate the free spins feature.
Top jackpot during regular play is 5000 coins for five clown fish. This is followed by 1000 coins for five turtles and then 500 coins for either five starfish or seahorses. The A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols make up all of the lower pays with five of a kind wins ranging from 2250 to 100 coins.
The treasure chests are scatters and while they do not activate any features they can give you some big wins. Getting all five scatters pays 100 times your total bet or 2000 coins if you are hitting the maximum bet button. In a bit of a twist the wild also substitutes for the scatters.
To win the free games on Dolphin Reef you need to get a wild dolphin anywhere on reel 2 and 4. The wilds then expand to cover the whole reel and any wins are paid. You then get five free spins with both reels 2 and 4 wild for all of the free spins. This gives you some big winning chances.
For example if you get a clown fish on the middle position on reels 1, 3 and 5 you win the top jackpot of 4000 coins on three lines for a 12,000 coin win. On the free games the wilds still substitute for the scatters although each wild reel just adds one scatter - this is fair as otherwise you would be getting 6 scatters on every spin.
Dolphin Reef also has a red / black gamble option where you can try your luck gambling any win you have on the reels. This sort of gamble feature is common on the Australian style video slots so if you like those types of games you will enjoy this game.
