Dolphin Quest is a dolphin themed title, which is far from unusual, even for Microgaming. This developer alone has three or four slot machines that are inspired by this creature, so you can imagine how many there are overall at online casinos. Still, I doubt you will mind the lack of imagination in the choice of theme, not when you see the quality of the design and of the symbols which are used here. On the list of features, you will discover the stacked wilds, the scatters and the bonus game. The 5 reels have a total of 50 lines on them and they can pay you $75,000.
Betting and Prizes
Your wagers need to cover up to 50 lines, that’s if you want them all active of course. You need a minimum of 50 coins to do that, but you can have up to 250 coins in a wager, with up to 5 coins used for each line. The line denomination is another part of the game that is under your control, so you’re able to move the value between $0.01 and $0.50, which would mean a line bet of up to $2.50 and a total bet of up to $125.
If you look just at the regular combinations which you can form, you can expect at most $6,250 from one. The slot’s bonus game appears to be capable of giving you much more though, payouts of $75,000 being mentioned by the paytable for it.
Dolphin Quest Features
A logo serves as the wild symbol, a stacked icon that can appear anywhere on the reels. You can have as many as four of these wild symbols on a single reel. Should wild symbols be present on all the positions of the same line, they are capable of paying up to $6,250. The stacked nature of the symbol insures that you can have multiple combinations formed at the same time with it, so the payouts should be quite good.
There is only one other symbol which Dolphin Quest uses for features, a scatter that can also act as a wild symbol. While used as a wild, this scatter icon will not replace the stacked wild, but it will work in all other cases. Scatters are used only on the reels 2, 3 and 4. When all three reels have them, the bonus game starts up, giving you a chance to win up to 150,000 coins apparently.
Theme & Design
One of the advantages that Dolphin Quest game has over all the other ocean themed slot machines is going to be the quality of the design. Dolphin Quest has gorgeous symbols, all of them themed and showing you images of dolphins, fish, an octopus and various other sea creatures. Even the background image has this level of quality, showing you the bottom of the ocean and some of the plant life present there.
Dolphin Quest is an interesting game, mostly because of the graphics quality and the features included, not as much thanks to the theme choice.
