Hound Hotel Slot is a medium variance, 5 x 3 reel slot with 25 fixed paylines. In this slot, Microgaming depicts a scenario of five posh dog characters living it up in a hotel while their owners are away on vacation. Play is fun and comical with frequent wins and a high jackpot reward on offer.
Features, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds
Hound Hotel’s Free Spins round is activated when you land 3 or more of the bellboy scatter icons anywhere in view. To see how your free spins game will play out you need to visit the hotel and play a “picking” bonus game; Floor one determines which Wild feature will be active, Floor 2 determines the multiplier for your wins (may award extra pick) and Floor 3 determines your number of free spins (may award extra pick). The Wilds (Hound Hotel Logo) you pick on floor one can be:
- Expanding wilds to complete wins
- Frozen wilds on reels 1 and 5
- Stacked wilds of 20 positions on reels 2 and 4
- Wilds which split into two to create extra winning combinations
- Reel 2, 3 or 4 is wild on each spin
Once you have finished off the bonus game your free spins will start to play off.
Whilst there are no additional bonus games or a progressive jackpot to be found, the scatters, wilds and bonuses can lead to huge wins.
Wagering and Payouts
The coin values for this slot range from 0.01 increasing upward to a max bet of $25. You can play more than one coin per payline per spin but remember that the paylines are fixed so you have to play all 25 paylines per spin on your chosen bet value. As with all Microgaming slots one can expect frequent payouts of high and low amounts. The base game offers a high jackpot and some of the main characters can yield high paying combinations on their own.
Hound Hotel is a highly entertaining slot that will most definitely appeal to all people who love their pets. The lack of a progressive jackpot coupled with the maximum bet of $25 may however make this slot more attractive to low rollers.
