The Dog House Megaways slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for The Dog House Megaways is 3.45%.
The Dog House Megaways is a 6 reel game and each reel can vary in height, from 2 symbols per reel to 7 symbols per reel. The slot does not use paylines, instead you form winning combinations of 3 or more symbols across adjacent reels. There is no set number of winways, or in this case Megaways per spin but the maximum number available is 117,649.
Tumble feature – After every winning combination, those symbols will disappear from the reels and new symbols will drop down in their place, giving you another chance to win. If you do win again, the process will continue and will keep doing so until a new tumble fails to result in a winning combination. Symbols that are added during a tumble will always be the same size as those that disappeared.
Funnily enough this slot has an animal theme. The dogs mentioned in the title are all cartoon characters, each one with a personality all of its own. This is bright, fun, typically Pragmatic Play slot.
