Microgaming is the developer behind Dolphin Coast, a modern title with a theme that appears to be based on the life found under the ocean’s surface. Its obvious main hero is a dolphin, that much you can guess just by reading the slot’s title. The theme is far from unusual for a slot machine, on the contrary. The dolphin is often part of these slot machines, but it’s not always the star, as it is here. You have various other sea creatures on the reels of Dolphin Coast, and most of them are done in a good enough design. This slot has some decent features also, like the scatter symbols, the free spins or the stacked wild symbols. 3125 ways to win are used in the game, with top payouts having the potential of reaching $16,000.
Betting and Prizes
Dolphin Coast slot will have for you 3125 ways to win, which is an unusual system to use, most games having at most 1024. The game uses 5 reels of 5 symbols each to get you that many chances to win. In exchange, it needs for multiples of 50 coins to be used, simulating an environment with 50 paylines for this purpose. You can have a maximum of 10 coins per line, but denominations will be at $0.01 or $0.02. That’s why even though you use up to 500 coins in a bet, the value will not go beyond $10.
Regular combinations will not pay that much, going up to 250x. The scatter symbol does a little bit better, having up to 100x the total bet for you, meaning up to 50,000 coins. There are bonus games that promise up to 800,000 coins though, which would mean $16,000 cash.
Dolphin Coast Slot Features
The image of the dolphin will be found on the icon which can be used to replace other symbols, the wild. It’s a stacked wild, used only on the reels 2 and 4, and from that position you can have it replace scatter or bonus symbols.
The scatter is simpler, having a logo on top of a school of fish. When it appears two to five times, even if they’re not on the same payline, you get paid as much as 100 times what you put in that spin. You also gain access to the free spins. 3 to 5 of these symbols will give you 15 to 25 free spins, which can be retriggered. You can’t trigger bonus games in the free spins though, and the wild symbol is no longer stacked, so there are disadvantages as well to it.
The Dolphin Coast Logo will be the final feature, a symbol which triggers a bonus game when it appears on the 3rd reel. It’s also a wild symbol, which replaces any other icon, but not the scatter. In this bonus game, you have to pick one of the three dolphins, and you will be given a multiplier of 2x to 4x, to be applied to the prize.
Theme & Design
It’s a decent design, especially for this theme which is so popular, with about seven symbols that have creatures of the sea on them, while the others are with logos or poker cards.
Expect to have fun mostly with the features of Dolphin Coast game, as well as the ways to win system and its many chances to win a prize.
