Dog Days Features
The slot boasts one of the most traditional setups involving a 5x3 grid spanning 20 pay lines, needing at least 3 matching symbols from left to right to form a win. Regular payouts range from 0.2 to 4 times the bet for combinations on low-value royals and 1 to 20 times for hits on premium icons and the Wild.
Paw Collections & Tasty Treat Collections
Each reel has its dedicated Paw Collection meter in a unique color. Landing matching crystal shards on the corresponding reel will fill one segment. Once all five parts are collected, the Paw Collection turns into Tasty Treat Collection with three lives. On successive spins, each matching treat symbol will advance the player one step on the cash ladder and reset the lives back to three. A round with no treat scored will exhaust one life. Once all three are lost, the prize from the reached level on the ladder will be awarded.
Dog Days Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Free Spins symbols activates the bonus round with 10, 14, or 20 free spins, respectively. All Tasty Treat Collection meters start as empty, and they are not limited by three lives anymore. Players must collect as many matching treats as possible on all reels to climb each of the five ladders individually and secure their prizes.
Landing between 3 - 5 Bonus symbols in the base game or 2 - 5 in the free spins activates the feature. Each triggering instance will reveal a prize upon clicking/tapping it from the following possibilities:
- 40x instant win (120x in free spins)
- 10x instant win (30x in free spins)
- 4x instant win (12x in free spins)
- 3x instant win (9x in free spins)
- 2x instant win (6x in free spins)
- Tasty Treat Collection symbol (if the feature is active on the respective reel)
- Paw Collection symbol (if the feature is active on the respective reel)
Dog Days slot offers three different bet types offering various enhancers to the gameplay:
- Bronze Bet is default and awards 3 lives in the Tasty Treat Collection feature.
- Silver Bet awards 4 lives in the Tasty Treat Collection feature, plus increases the number of Wilds, Bonus symbols, and Free Spins symbols on the reels. Cost: +50% of the active bet.
- Golden Bet awards 5 lives in the Tasty Treat Collection feature, plus significantly increases the number of Wilds, Bonus symbols, and Free Spins symbols on the reels. Cost: +100% of the active bet.
Dog Days offers a cheerful, carefree atmosphere in the company of five cute canines. It's a rather traditional take on the dog theme revolving around treats and accessories like bowls and collars, although it introduces a note of extravagant luxury, picturing the canines as some sort of royalty cared for by servants. And good for them, too, because the way they can reward players through the features undoubtedly earns them the right to be a little spoiled.
The game's max win may sit on the lower side of the industry scale, offering a conservative 2,500x, but we must admit that the interesting gameplay eclipses that fact quite efficiently. The two-stage collection element introduces plenty of diversity and anticipation, especially since each reel has an independent meter. On top of that, the free spins offer a persistent, risk-free progression, while the Bonus feature occasionally lets players boost the collection or receive instant prizes. If that wasn't enough, three various bet types significantly boost the features' potential for a relatively modest bet value increase.
