Dolphin Tale Review

Microgaming have once again raised the bar for online video slots with the release of the Dolphins Tale game. It is the first online slot to have 40 lines and also offers a new style of free spins feature where you get to select how many spins you want and can get multipliers of up to twenty times.

The game has an undersea theme with a crime fighting twist. All of the sea creatures on the reels are part of an underwater police force. These include the rookie dolphin who is wild, the chief who is a walrus and the turtle who is long time seeker of justice in the ocean. Overall it is a fun theme that we have not seen before which is always nice.

You can bet up to 5 coins per line which gives you a total max bet of 200 coins. Coin sizes range from a penny to a quarter so the smallest max bet is $2 and the highest is $50, of course there are plenty of choices in the middle. Top jackpot is 3,000 coins for the five wild dolphins or up to 15,000 coins if you are playing max bet. This might seem a bit low but the feature changes this.

The scattered clams are the key to the bonus game. Land three or more clams anywhere on the screen and you win the feature. Unlike most slots where you win a set amount of spins you have a choice to make on Dolphin Tale. You get to see a line up with five suspects (View Image). Choose a suspect to get a free spin amount and a multiplier amount.

There are five different amounts of free spins to choose from 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25. Each free spin amount has three different possible multipliers. These get bigger as the amount of spins get smaller so for instance if you pick 25 free games you can win a 2, 3 or 5 time multiplier while i you pick 5 spins you can get a 10, 15 or 20 times multiplier. Once you have selected your suspect you get to see a second screen that shows your win.

We have seen this type of "Choose Your Own Feature" in land based casinos on games such as Show Me The Money and Super Bucks 4 but this is the first time we have seen it appear online.

It is up to you which one to pick but we would suggest going for the 15, 10 or 5 free games as these offer the highest multipliers and in turn the biggest wins. For instance if you get the 20 times multiplier and hit the top jackpot on the free games you will win 300,000 coins!

To give you a better chance of winning big on the free games extra wilds can appear randomly on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once the spin is complete any of the symbols on these reels can transform into a wild. This adds to the excitement as even a losing spin can suddenly turn into a big win if three wilds appear.

On of the drawbacks of games with so many lines such as Dolphins Tale is the fact that many of the wins you will hit will be less than or even with your total bet. For example getting five of the lowest paying symbols the "Deep Sea Diners" pays just 200 coins or your bet back. Clearly you need to hit the bonus games to get any of the decent wins.

On the flip side you will find that with so many lines you will at least win something on virtually every spin. Even if this is less than your total bet you will still get a lot of spins out of most deposits. The scatters also pay well because they are multiplied by the total bet rather than the line bet.

In the end it is great to see an online slot that offers a new line format and a new style of free spin bonus. If you are a video slot machine fan then it is well worth having a spin or two on.
