Progressive Jackpot: No

This greyhound race-inspired game takes you to a greyhound racetrack where these long-legged, sleek dogs race to bag the top prize in a game called Wildhound Derby. The game’s background features the racetrack with packed stands and flashing bulbs as the race ensues. Spotlights light the sky and blazing stadium light illuminate the track as people watch their favorite canine run the course.
The game is a 5x4 grid that is pretty straightforward in design, with borders that emulate the railings that surround the track. The control panel at the bottom is also just as straightforward, with clean lines and simple fonts used in the words and numbers. The Spin button is found on the right side of this panel with the Auto Play button located on its right. The Bet Change bar is in the middle of the control panel and features bet options that range from a low of .10 to a high of 100.
To launch hands-free spins, click on the Auto Play button and choose how many automatic spins you want to run. The options range from 10 to 100 spins. You can set parameters here as well for when these spins will stop. It can be anything from a Free Spins win to hitting a specific high balance or if you’re running low on credits.
The game revolves around the greyhound races so it’s natural to see symbols that are synonymous with this sport. The game has both high and low paying symbols, with the low paying ones following the usual standard set by most online slots, which are the top four cards in a standard deck. High paying symbols are items that you usually see on these tracks and these include a betting book, tickets, a winner’s ribbon, and rolls of cash.
Special symbols in this game are also in line with the slot’s theme. The Wild symbol in this game is either the four racing dogs or the winner’s golden cup. The four dogs are also considered the Scatter symbols of this game since the appearance of all 4 is what is needed to launch the Free Spins round.
This game has only the Free Spins round, which is pretty elusive and difficult to trigger since you will need all 4 dogs to appear on the last reel of the game. When this happens, a special round is launched. This is the race round. All 4 dogs will race to the other side of the reels, with the golden rabbit appearing on their lane pushing each dog one column or reel forward. The Free Spins round will continue for as long as no dog has won yet. The moment a dog reaches the other side, the Free Spins round is over.
The great thing about this Free Spins round is it acts like a real race where you get to pick which dog you think will win. If your chosen dog wins, you get a prize wheel bonus where you get the chance to win up to x15 multiplier for the prize money you currently have from the Free Spins round. If your dog loses, you still get the prize money you accumulated from the round sans the multiplier.
