Welcome to the races! Which dog will win in this Wildhound Derby slot game? With a little bit of luck, you’ll be the lucky dog coming out of here with 15,000x your bet.
We can say much the same for this Wildhound Derby slot by Play’n GO. It’s not bad, but when you are doing sports gambling games, you end up being a little generic.
Because you rarely can put a specific team or a specific favourite track on your game.
So what you get is this: Ace to 10 low paying symbols, ticket stubs, rosettes, wads of cash and betting magazines as the high paying ones. The dogs add a little uniqueness, but this is what you expect from an online casino game called the Wildhound Derby slot.
Get used to these stats, because that’s what you’ll be looking at for many spins. This Wildhound Derby online slot is a little old fashioned in that sense: you get wilds and 30 paylines, and a good paytable.
That’s it. Nothing much else, you just have to wait for the free spins to hit. How? By getting 4 wild dogs on reels 5 – they only show up on reel 5 anyway, so that’s not that rare.
When they do you get UNLIMITED free spins! Sounds amazing? Dying to try your luck at the races? Hold your doggies there Mr(s). It’s not quite as simple as that, as with any Play’n GO phone slots.
When you trigger the free spins bonus round, you get to pick a dog. When you start the free spins, those dogs start on reel 5 and then coins flip on the left.
If the coins show a golden hare, the dog will walk one reel to the left. This doesn’t happen on every spin, but that’s ok, because the dogs are wild symbols, meaning you always have 4 wild symbols on the reels during your unlimited free spin round.
But are they unlimited? Really? Of course not. Once just one of the dogs falls off reel 1, the bonus game in this Wildhound Derby slot machine ends. Which means you get, most of the time, about 5 or 6 spins, if you’re lucky.
The good news is that if you picked the right dog, and he wins, you’ll then get anything from 2x to 15x multiplier on all your wins during the free games.
That’s how you get wins close to 15,000x your bet, and long term gamblers will be salivating at the chance of catching that golden rabbit. Just remember, this is a volatile game, so make sure you have a good slot strategy under your belt.

Wild: The Golden Cup is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols. You also have 4 wild dogs, but they only show up on reel 5 in the base game, and in the free spins, only pays 12x your bet for getting 4 on a payline. The normal wild pays 100x your bet on 5 of a kind wins.
Free Spins Race: Land four wild dogs on the 5th reel and you trigger a Dog race. First, you have to pick one of your dogs. Then you get unlimited spins to watch the dogs walk across the reel to from right to left, to get a win. On the left, you have spinning coins, which decide whether the dogs walk one space, and who wins.
When any dog falls off reel 1, and wins the race, the free spins are ended. This usually takes about 4 to 5 spins, but these dogs are also wild, helping you to create wins as the move across the reels.
If your dog wins, you'll then be taken to the winner's wheel. This just means that your total win in the free spins will be multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, and 15x.
Writing this Wildhound Derby slot review very much made us feel like we in the middle of a dog race.
Because mostly you'll be waiting a long time by the sidelines, for just 5 seconds of high octane quick burst of actions that leave you breathless. And then you wait again.
Do you have that kind of patience? If so, enjoy a volatile game with big multipliers, lots of wilds and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin for 30 paylines.
We don't think this slot game is for everyone, however, so if you're not good at playing the waiting game, you may want to try another sport: MMA in the It's Time slot maybe?
