What is this mobile slot about?

Don’t let the dopey look in their eyes fool you. This Firehouse Hounds mobile slot is alive with blazing hot wilds.

This IGT game is the exact same copy of the Cash Coaster slot machine, so if you liked that frolicking ride, you’ll love Firehouse Hounds.

It’s always hard to review a casino slot game that we’ve done before, because what else can we possibly say about it?

In short; this is an incredibly fun 30 payline IGT video slot, that pays both ways, and pays often.

An improved theme?

Needless to say, IGT have made a bit more of an effort with the Firehouse Hounds slot machine. You get the two characters of the dogs on the wheels, constantly animated, and at any time, dousing reel 1, reel 5, or both, with water.

Why would they do that, because it turns both reels completely wild.

And as this machine pays from left to right and right to left, it means you are almost always guaranteed to get a win when this happens.

That said, there’s something about the caramel apples and ice cream of Cash Coaster – it might be a simpler theme, but it appeals to our inner child.

There’s something about the dogs on the big iPad or tablet screens that didn’t quite sit right with us. As an Android phone slot, or iPad slot, it was far less obvious.

Firehouse Hounds is still a huge amount of fun

At this point we are probably just nit-picking though. We still had a huge smile across our face each time those stacked wilds showed up and we kept getting enough wins to fill our pockets.

Don’t get us wrong, you won’t get as rich here as you would playing on the Prowling Panther mobile slot, for example.

But then, the panther is likely to maul your wallet and leave you crying, whilst these doggies are here to rescue you from fiery boredom.

The free spins bonus games are especially generous as they come far more often than on so many other IGT slot machines, about every 50 spins or so, and when they do, both reel 1 and 5 are wild the entire time.

And sure you might not get life-changing wins, but you’re far more likely to walk away in the positive, than the negative, and sometimes, that’s all you need from a game.

Closing thoughts

Fans of harder hitting and more complicated IGT games will be disappointed by the smaller wins here.

But we think that the Firehouse Hounds mobile slot is, if not blazing hot, at the very least, smouldering with joy.

We rarely felt bored as we spun time and time again, our budgets sometimes up and sometimes down, always on the look out for the frequent wins and free spins that make this mobile casino game action packed.

Though once you've outgrown this little gem, we heartily recommend moving up a notch with the likes of the Golden Goddess slot.
