Dolphin Tale is a video slot that has dolphins in the main roles, but which uses plenty of other sea creatures for jobs that we would normally associate with humans. You get the chance to see how an underwater city works, with dolphins present on the reels, with seals acting as policemen, with a ship used as a casino and so on. The game’s design style is a bit on the funny side, but that’s a good thing. It’s not a unique theme though, there are already a lot of other slot machines that are inspired by underwater life. Wild symbols, scatters, free spins and huge multipliers are part of the list of features. The game has 40 paylines on 5 reels and it pays up to $3,750.
Betting and Prizes
With a maximum of 40 active win lines that you can activate, you will have to decide how many coins you want to use for each one and what the denomination should be. You can have a maximum of 5 coins in a line bet, while their value doesn’t go higher than $0.25. That should mean that a $1.25 line bet is possible, and that with 40 lines active you can spend $50 per spin.
Normally, the payouts are not very high in this game. You can get 3,000x from the Rookie icon, which would mean 15,000 coins at best, or $3,750. 20x multipliers during free spins are possible though, and that’s how you can get up to 300,000 coins, or $75,000.
Dolphin Tale Slot Features
The Dolphin Rookie, sporting a police cap on its head, will be the slot’s wild symbol. You use it to get paid well, since a combination that has only dolphin wilds in it will give you 3,000x, or up to 15,000 coins. Wilds are useful as substitutes also, so you will notice that they are present on the reels and helping you get paid if they land in the correct position.
The Spy Clam, a scatter symbol, is used as a way to trigger prizes which reach 50x the bet value. You can get up to 10,000 coins this way, whish is not a bad prize. 3 to 5 scattered Spy Clams will trigger the free spins feature.
During the feature, you have to choose one of the five types of free spins. The more free spins you get, the smaller the multiplier that can be applied to the wins. The extremes are the round with 25 free games (2x to 5x multipliers) and the one with 5 free games (10x to 20x multipliers). Extra wilds are added to the middle reels during the free spins.

The theme of Dolphin Tale slot appears to be mimicking the look of a human town, but underwater. You have characters like the Rookie Dolphin, the Spy Clam, the seal which is Chief of Police, Merl the octopus, Karl the turtle, Lucile the police woman or Louie the snitch.
