Hound Hotel Gameplay and Symbols
If you haven’t had the pleasure of staying at a hotel run by dogs, then now is your chance. Hound Hotel is a cool slot with an innovative and unique theme.
The slot face has lots of white space which makes things very clear and in the background you will see a traditional hotel with hotel dog staff walking around serving guests. The feature icons are five hounds all of different breads and distinguished style, and after that you’ll find lower value colored letters (J, Q, K and A).
When you hit a win in Hound Hotel the animations are quite basic. The icons will just flash and move a little bit where you win. The scatter symbols also have an animation which is quite cool.
The Hound Hotel title logo acts as stacked wilds during normal gameplay and it substitutes for any other icons on the reels to give you a win, except for the scatter. On top of this there is also a random dashing wild icon which puts three wilds at random somewhere on the reels.
The ambient sounds in Hound Hotel are similar to what you’d hear in a hotel lobby and are pretty cool. The slot sounds are standard and will add that extra layer of excitement to the game once you start spinning.
Hound Hotel Bonus Features
Scatter Free Spins Bonus: If you get three or more of the belldog scatter symbols, it activates the free spin bonus. When you get two scatters the whirling begins and the remaining reels take their time in stopping to build the excitement.
The scatter symbol also awards direct wins if you get two or more. If you’re lucky enough to get the free spins bonus you get taken to a cross-section of Hound Hotel, where you get three options. The first floor gives you an option to choose your unique wild type. Possible unique wild types include:
- Stacked wilds 20 high on reels two and four.
- Expanding wilds which push out to hit a win.
- Wild reels where reels one and five are frozen as wilds.
- Split wilds which can expand into two to give you a win, including a six of a kind which pays at two times five of a kind.
- Super wild reels which give you up to three wild reels on reels two, three and four, for each spin (an additional scatter on reels one and/or five will turn the relevant reels wild also).
On the second floor you choose a door that awards a multiplier for your free spins. On the third floor your door selection will show you how many free spins that you will be awarded. You can also get an additional pick on the second and third floor doors.
Hound Hotel Conclusion
You’ll have stacks of fun playing Hound Hotel. The game play is great and it’s a nice, clean, well-designed slot. The bonus round has some interactivity which is always good and the opportunity to win big on some of the unique wilds that you can select is excellent.
Things get really interesting if you get the super wild reels and then hit another scatter symbol to make four out of the five reels wild. The wins from this could be huge!
