The Dog House

Get in the Dog House with you! That’s an insult in the UK, but this is a Dog House that might be worth exploring.

You’ll need an appetite for high volatility if you spin the reels on this The Dog House slot 2019 release from Pragmatic Play, the giant slot provider.

You’ll also find a lot to enjoy in this kennel though, because this is one good-looking game, with great animation and real character.

The main extras here are wild multipliers, a top pay-out of 6,750-times stake, and sticky wilds in a great free spins round.

The game opens up with a set of four doggy pals waiting to play with you on a wooden-set of reels that are a classic 5-by-3 set up.

Gentle music plays as you spin and win in one of the most entertaining games to be released last year.

The Game

The Dog House Slot

This is a simple game to play. The controls conform to the usual pattern for this company, with a control panel across the bottom of the screen for desktop players.

The spin button is at the bottom right, with plus and minus buttons flanking it that open up a betting window where you can select how many coins to bet on each line, the value of each coin, and your total bet. An autoplay function gives you a lot of sophisticated choices.

In the centre of the control panel is a win window, and an information window.

To the left, your bet amount is shown, with your credit above it (you can switch this between a coin value and actual money).

Finally, at the far left is an information button, a menu icon to open up the settings, and a shortcut to the audio controls.

The Pay Table

There are five card symbols from 10 to Ace, and they pay from 0.1 to 2.5-times stake for three to five symbols on a line.

A bone pays 0.4 to 5-times stake and the dog collar pays 0.6 to 7.5-times stake.

The dogs are:

  • A beagle paying 1 to 10-times stake.
  • A pug paying 1.25 to 15-times stake.
  • A poodle paying 1.75 to 25-times stake.
  • A Doberman pays 2.5 to 37.5-times stake.


In the base game, multiplier wilds appear.

They appear on the central reels only, shaped like a kennel. They land with a multiplier, which can interact when they appear in multiples to a maximum of 9-times multiplier on your prize.

There’s a scatter, in the shape of a jewelled paw and it appears only on 1, 3, and 5.

As usual, scatters trigger free spins.

The spins arrive in an unusual set of 9 – via a decent intro sequence – up to 27.

In the free spins round the high-value symbols stack and multiplier wilds land on the reels to stay put through the round, building up to that potential top prize.

The top prize is not a jackpot, but it is worth a lot of money, with £100 producing £675,000 as a top prize.

The Verdict

This is a wonderful game. The animation, look, feel, and symbols are beautifully drawn and the theming is perfectly done. Even the music is pretty good, and we never like music!

The gameplay is stylish too, with plenty to keep players interested throughout the spin cycle. That’s a little of a stretch on the base game, where a single bonus – those wilds – isn’t all that much to write home about. But the smooth look makes up for that.

This puts a lot of pressure on the bonus feature. First of all, that’s introduced really nicely via a kennel sequence and if you hit 27 free spins you won’t be complaining. Throw in extra wilds on the free spins round and this game can deliver really impressive wins if you bet at the top of a big staking range.

Pragmatic Play always deliver a quality game, and you can trust them for safety and security too, with licensing around the world and some very good information and help functions.

A great game and this Dog House is one you want to get into.
