The sport of greyhound racing doesn’t often collide with the world of online slots but there’s no harm in mixing things up a bit and so here we have Wildhound Derby, a release from Play N Go which lets us bet on our favourite dog as they chase the golden hare across the reels – find out how it all works below.
Wildhound Derby is a five reel slot with four rows and thirty fixed paylines; those reels spin above the dog track which is floodlit and full of punters ready to set their wagers.
The four theme-related symbols include rolls of banknotes, a winner’s rosette, entry tickets and an old-school form guide; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The trophy is wild and it will substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combinations. The dogs which appear on reel five are also wild.
Dog Race Free Spins
This feature is triggered when all four dogs (Braveheart, Daring Dex, Beadle’s Teabag and Oh My Dog) land on reel five and your first task is to pick a winner; the free spins now start and dogs move one position to the left whenever a Golden Hare appears on their row and the first one to get beyond reel one is the winner. The spins continue until there’s a winner.
If your dog wins then you’ll also get to spin the Winner’s Wheel which will can multiply your winnings by up to 15x.
Wildhound Derby blurs the boundaries between slots and video games but it also reminds us of those mechanical dog races at amusement arcades in which you’d select a dog at specific odds and mostly lose. This game is more fun than that though and comes recommended.
