Wild Hound Derby Slot Review

Released: January 2020

The Wild Hound Derby slot game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go should now be considered one of the biggest and most established slots designers out there, despite not being around all that long. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go used to publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots but appear to have stopped doing so within the game help files. Now we need to wait until that information has been published elsewhere and as such we can confirm with a degree of accuracy that the house edge for Wild Hound Derby is 3.07%.

The Wild Hound Derby slot is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols in height. It uses traditional paylines, with 30 in total, playing from left to right.

Theme

This has to be the first Greyhound Racing slot that I have seen and to be fair to Play ‘n’ Go they do a decent job trying to bring a day at the races to life. There is a dog race, which was an absolute requirement for this slot but the overall aesthetic doesn’t quite live up to idea. It is all a little too drab and essentially just not ambitious enough.

Special Symbols

Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Trophy” and will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. The Wild symbol will also pay out individually and is, along with the “Wads of Cash” symbol the most valuable in this slot.

Dogs – Along with your Trophy Wilds you also get “Dog Wilds”. These Wilds only appear on the 5th reel and there are 4 different “Dog Wilds”, each one with a different name and a different colour. Not only do they act as Wilds but they also trigger the Free Spins feature, all you need to do is land each of the 4 “Dog Wilds” on the 4th reel a the same time.

Features

Dog Race Free Spins – If you can trigger the Free Spins then you will be taken to a new set of reels with a greyhound to the right of each row and a golden hare to the left of each row. Before the feature begins you need to choose which of the 4 dogs you want to back, that will then become you dog for the race. You do not get a set number of Free Spins, instead the slot will end when one of the dogs makes it to the golden hare. With each spin the golden hares will also spin and if they land heads up the dog that sits on the same row will move one space to the left. If your dog gets to the Golden Hare first then you will be taken to the Winner’s Wheel. If your dog fails to finish first you will be awarded however much you managed to win during the Free Spins.

Winner’s Wheel – If you earn a spin on the Winner’s Wheel then you will multiply your winnings from the Free Spins round. The Winner’s Wheel can give you a multiplier anywhere between x2 the bet and x15 the bet.

Conclusion

I really like the idea of this slot. I have never seen a greyhound racing slot before and believe that Play ‘n’ Go have caught onto something fairly unique with this slot. My main criticisms come from the slot’s aesthetic, with pretty bland looking reels and symbols that could have been lifted out of a slot released over a decade ago. I like the main feature but there just are not enough bells and whistles on it for me to get too excited. However, a good idea and an excellent house edge are more than enough for us to recommend this slot.
