Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe Slot
Dolphin's Pearl Deluxe is a 5-reel, max 10-pay line slot from Novomatic. It's the sequel to their original title, 'Dolphin's Pearl'. This updated version has better graphics and more lucrative jackpots. Sea-themed slots are fairly popular among casino software providers, and especially dolphin-related ones. We can think of Dolphin Reef and Dolphin Treasure as examples. We're not sure how dolphins have come to be so readily associated with online slots. You never see dolphins slamming the slots in Las Vegas, or taking their chances at the poker table – too many sharks, perhaps …
The reels in this game are teeming with sea life – seahorses, fish, rays and lobsters, oh and dolphins too of course. Slightly less fishy-related are playing card values nine through to ace. There are ten available lines in this slot, and you can select as many as you want to be in play for each spin. You can also choose your bet-per-line from 0.01 to 2.00. Your final wager is these two values multiplied together. When you're ready to cast your line, hit the 'start' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
You can win a fishy payout just for landing two of certain symbols, namely two rays, lobsters (who are red in this game – only COOKED lobsters are red, guys!) or nines. That wins you double your bet-per-line. The jackpot is won by landing five dolphin symbols on an active pay-line – 9,000x in riches is your reward.
Your friendly dolphin pal is also the wild symbol in this slot – he (or she) substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbols. All wins containing a dolphin symbol are doubled too.
A 'pearl in a shell' symbol acts as the scatter symbol. You only need two anywhere on the reels to win a cash prize, and if you land three or more then you are awarded fifteen free games. What's more is that all your wins during your free games are tripled. You can re-trigger free games during your freebies.
That's about as far as your dip in the ocean with Dolphin's Pearl Deluxe will take you. It's the usual Novomatic 'deluxe' slot, just with the Dolphin branding. The lack of a bonus game is a bit of a disappointment, but at least there are wilds and scatters. A slot that's porpoise-ly aimed at those whom enjoy simpler slots.
