What is this mobile slot about?

The dolphins are out to play in a NextGen game that is far more fun than we originally thought. Bright graphics and a great re-spin feature brings Dolphin Reef mobile slot up from obscurity and into our mobile screens.

This Dolphin Reef slot game is certainly cute. Dolphins, sea turtles, clown fish and other sea critters litter the 5 reels of this 20 payline slot, as well as your traditional high card symbols. So far, so standard. It’s a theme to love or hate, and if you like it, there are probably some far more graphically interesting online mobile slots you can enjoy.

Like the high variance Great Blue by Playtech for example. Or the classic, but hard hitting Mermaid’s Millions by Microgaming.

Why are we trying to move you away from the mobile Dolphin Reef slot? No reason really, as it’s a theme that has been done again and again, we just wanted to let you know of where it has been done better.

This Dolphin Reef slot has one saving grace

This is a fun little mobile casino slot, but it’s a fairly simple one with low payouts. You’ll win, but it won’t be anything hugely significant. It only has one bonus feature, which doesn’t hit all that often, so you’ll usually only have scatters and wilds to keep you company for most of your spins. It’s a little too calm and soft for us, we prefer our mobile slots machines with a little more excitement.

The re-spin bonus feature, when it does come, is Dolphin Reef’s saving grace. If you get wild dolphins on reels 2 and 4 simultaneously, both these reels will turn into expanded Wilds and you’ll get 5 re-spins of the rest of the reels. Here is where the video slot really comes in to it’s own. The expanded wilds are pools of ocean, where dolphins will jump across from one expanded wild to the other in a frenzy of thrills. The wins are also pretty much guaranteed, with the expanded wilds well places to give you 4 matching symbols at least.

This feature doesn’t come often enough to enchant us, but we can appreciate this NextGen slot for the simplicity of the game and the occasional thrill it can give us. One for when you are feeling in a fairly relaxed mindset and want to stretch the budget.

In-game bonus features

Wild: The dolphin symbol is the wild and it only shows up on reels 2 and 4 - so not incredibly often, and certainly not often enough to give you big wins on it's own.

Scatter: The treasure chest is the scatter symbol, and does not have to be on an active payline to pay out - just three or more on the screen will do.

Re-spin Feature: Re-spin/free spin, just another way to say you get 5 free games when the wild dolphin symbol shows up on reel 2 and 4 at the same time. These then expand to cover the whole of reel 2 and 4 and get you the bigger wins of the game.


Closing thoughts

The Dolphin Reef mobile slot is cute and has one main thing going for it - a great re-spin or free spin feature that is exciting and visually interesting.

However, once the bonus feature disappears we found that the wins on this slot machine were fairly average and without the thrill of the interesting graphics and game play, we got bored quite quickly.

Definitely looks and plays better on the iPhone (or smartphone) than it does on the tablet, probably due to the simplicity of it. Good for a few quick spins between journeys, where you don't have to worry about missing any big features whilst playing and you want to pass away 20 minutes of your time.
