The Dog House Megaways Slot Review

Everybody loves dogs, or at least, most people do! We believe you are one of those people so wouldn’t you like to try out a playful and highly rewarding slot? If you answered yes, then this Pragmatic Play masterpiece is for you.

The game takes place outside, in a big garden decorated with flowers. You can make out a few suburban-style houses scattered throughout the screen. The reel set appears as part of a giant dog house on top of which sits the logo of the game. At its right, you can see the current spin’s Megaways indicator.

Mechanically, the slot differs quite a bit from traditional games as it utilizes the Megaways system as licensed to do so by BTG. On each spin, there can be anywhere between 2 and 7 symbols on each reel thus decreasing or increasing the potential paylines.

The game builds upon the success of the original hit “The Dog House” and is a relatively simple game, both to understand and play. This is the reason why it has gone on to become one of the most popular slots on the planet. If you want a similar experience you can try any other MegaWays system or you could always check out the original title. For now, though, let’s focus on this version of the game.

How to Play The Dog House Megaways

The game consists of 6 rows and 6 reels with up to 117,649 ways to win. Using the controls located under the reel set, players can set the preferred bet size, enable the autoplay function, check out the paytable, or simply spin. Further customization options are available through the in-game menu.

As for the bet range, the minimum is $0.20 while the maximum is $100 but this is subject to change based on the casino you play at. The Dog House Megaways is a highly volatile slot with an RTP of 96.55% while the maximum exposure is more than 12,000x your stake.

The Dog House Megaways features 5 low paying, 2 medium paying, and 4 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of card values 10-A followed by a bone and a collar. The last ones are represented by different dog breeds such as a beagle, a pug, a Yorkshire terrier, and a bulldog.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by the dog house symbol, the wild can substitute for all other symbols except for the bonus symbol. It only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
  • Bonus – This symbol appears on all reels and getting 3 of these triggers the Free Spins round.

Game Rules

The Dog House Megaways Features

As mentioned in the introduction, the game is pretty straightforward. The MegaWays system might confuse you into thinking it has a lot going on for itself but this couldn’t be further from the truth. It only offers two bonus modes which we will talk about right ahead.

Wild Multipliers

The wild symbols can have a random multiplier of 2x or 3x. If more than one wild contributes to the same winning combination then their values are multiplied with each other.

Free Spins

Getting 3 or more bonus symbols to land will trigger the free spins round, presenting you with two options. These are the Sticky Wilds Free Spins and the Raining Wilds Free Spins.

Starting with the Sticky Wilds Free Spins, based on the number of bonus symbols that triggered the feature you will receive:

  • 3 bonus symbols – 7 free spins, 2-7 sticky wilds on each reel
  • 4 bonus symbols – 12 free spins, 2-7 sticky wilds on each reel
  • 5 bonus symbols – 15 free spins, 2-7 sticky wilds on each reel
  • 6 bonus symbols – 20 free spins, 3-7 sticky wilds on each reel

Whenever a wild symbol lands it will have a random multiplier between 1x and 3x, and it will remain on the reels for the entirety of the feature, changing size as the reel size changes in the subsequent spins.

Moving on to the Raining Wilds Free Spins, based on the number of bonus symbols that triggered the feature you will receive:

  • 3 bonus symbols – 15 free spins with up to 6 raining wilds on each spin
  • 4 bonus symbols – 18 free spins with up to 6 raining wilds on each spin
  • 5 bonus symbols – 25 free spins with up to 6 raining wilds on each spin
  • 6 bonus symbols – 30 free spins with up to 6 raining wilds on each spin

During the feature, at every spin up to 6 wild symbols of any size with a multiplier of 1x, 2x, or 3x can be added to random positions on the reels.

The feature can be also bought at the price of 100x the total bet. After purchase, any number between 3 and 6 scatters can hit to trigger the feature.
