Dolphin’s Island Slot
Dolphin’s Island is a marine based slot featuring many colourful fish and of course the mammal in the title. The dolphin is a particularly friendly looking character and the slot has something of the feel of the film ‘Finding Nemo’ – especially when you see clown fish on the reels, which does bear some resemblance to Nemo himself. All of the creatures on the slot share the same friendly air as the dolphin, apart from the puffer fish, who manages to combine a friendly/slightly startled look.
As you might expect from a slot with some resemblance to a Disney film, all of the symbols are drawn in a cartoon style and should they actually form part of a win line, the symbols will have some animation. The dolphin floats to the left hand side of the slot throughout gameplay while occasionally the clown fish will swim from left to right across the control panel. The reels are set against the backdrop of an island scene, with the brilliant blue sky reflecting off the ocean.
Setup and Play for Dolphin’s Island
This slot by iSoftbet has five reels and a massive 243 ways to win. Unlike the majority of other slots where you’ll need symbols to land consecutively on a win line from left to right, here you’ll win if the symbols appear anywhere on the first three reels or more. These 243 ways to win will cost you 25 credits and you’ll choose your coin size and the coin amount to set the total stake for the spin.
The highest paying symbol at the game is the puffer fish which earns you 2,500 coins if playing for the maximum 5 coins. This symbol is by far the biggest in terms of pay out at the slot, being worth 10x more than any other, so it’s clear which symbol you’ll want to look out for. The Nemo lookalike and a flatfish are the only other relevant standard symbols at the slot and are joined by a host of different coloured playing card symbols from 9 to Ace.
You can click auto spin which will set the slot running continuously until you either land the feature or manually hit stop.
The symbol featuring the friendly dolphin is the wild one at the game and will substitute for any other symbols apart from the scatter and the free spins symbol.
Dolphin’s Island Features
This slot has two distinct features.
First is a bonus feature which takes you to a spinning wheel. You’ll activate this round by landing the bonus symbol (actually showing the wheel) three or more times. The number of spins you’ll have at the reel is the number of bonus scatters you actually landed to activate it. The wheel itself has a combination of multipliers and prize amounts on it. Should you land a prize immediately, you’ll win that amount and bank it before moving onto the next spin. However, should you hit a multiplier first; this will be applied to the win amount on the next spin – this coming at the cost of only one spin of the wheel, as you’ve only won one amount.
The second feature is the free spins round. This is activated when the dolphin symbol appears on reel three, this being the only reel you’ll find it on. This dolphin symbol is actually the word ‘dolphin’ as opposed to the wild dolphin symbol which is a picture. These free spins come with some nice added extras. Firstly you’ll find some additional wilds being randomly awarded across the reels. Secondly, the wild dolphin will occasionally jump up and turn a whole reel wild. Finally, the puffer fish will randomly turn blocks of 2×2 symbols on the reels wild. Overall this makes for a round with many additional wilds appearing all over the slot, making for many extra wins during the feature.
Dolphin’s Island Conclusion
This slot by iSoftbet certainly has a friendly feel to it, making it one of the more endearing slots found online – let’s face it, nobody can resist a dolphin! The slot has a colourful air and will take you to sunnier climes too. The gameplay is good, with some original features, which is never a bad thing. The bonus wheel is the highlight of the two features for me, the multiplier and the win amount on the reels, making for a unique take on the wheel of fortune style game found at many slots. Overall this is a good, solid slot which will keep you entertained and have you coming back for more.
