Welcome back to Southfork Ranch! Based on the hit TV show, Dallas, this slot machine takes you back to the 80’s and features all your favorite characters. The machine has some good gameplay and exciting features.
Brought to you by Net Entertainment, Dallas is a five reel slot with 25 pay lines. You can wager denominations of 0.01 to 0.50 per pay line, and bet 1 to 10 coins per pay line. The minimum bet is 0.01 and the maximum is 125.00 each spin.
Dallas Gameplay and Symbols
The icons are simple yet elegant. As I touched on before, you’ll find all the popular Dallas characters including everyone’s favorite oil magnate JR Ewing, as well as Sue Ellen, Miss Ellie, Jock, and Lucy. The icons are glamorous portraits with their names signed in shining silver text. From there the other symbols are shining silver letters (A, K, Q, and J).
The wild icon has ‘Dallas Wild’ written on it with five stars. It goes into a little movement when you hit it though, with the Dallas and Wild text spinning and the stars moving. On top of this there are the scatter symbols and bonus dollar symbols, which I’ll cover in the bonus features section below.
The sounds are OK, without being great. The ambient sound track is a very short loop of a horse neighing, birds chirping, and the wind blowing. It gets a bit tiresome after a while, but it’s mostly covered by the game sounds so it’s not a huge issue. The slot sounds are standard and you get a pomp filled tune when you hit a win.
Dallas Bonus Features
Scatter Feature: The scatter symbol is quite basic. It’s just a free spins icon with the Dallas Skyline in the background. However, this is outweighed by the benefits you’ll get when you hit them.
You’ll get Scatter wins (total bet x multipliers) and the awarded free spins are very generous. If you get three symbols you’ll get 10 free spins, four symbols gives you 15, and five symbols gets you a huge 25 free spins.
All free spins are multiplied by 3x and you can re-trigger free spins during the round by hitting the same scatter symbols either three, four, or five times. If you get two scatter icons the whirling begins, to build that anticipation in the hope of hitting free spins. Once you hit the free spins the icon will do a dance and you’ll be taken to a separate screen in a Dallas skyscraper office to spin your way to victory.
Dallas Ewing Oil Bonus Game: To activate the bonus game you need to collect five bonus golden dollars. Your progress in collecting these is indicated on the bottom right hand corner of the slot.
To get a bonus dollar you must hit a bonus dollar symbol in the middle reel. The gold dollar symbol will fly out towards you and then drop below into your progress dollars. In the bonus game, you invest your dollars in a choice of five oil wells, all of which have various pay out rates, and then collect the profits that are randomly awarded. The number of dollars you invest in a well determines what your multiplier will be, with the maximum being five. Each well has various risks versus reward options. So choose wisely!
This is a very cool and fun slot machine. The cut scenes between bonuses and free spins, as well as when you first start playing, really take you back to this hit TV show, and the graphics and sounds are good enough to add to the atmosphere when playing. The free spin rounds can pay out nicely with a 3x multiplier and the bonus feature is great fun. All in all this is a good slot and well worth a play.
