How to play Dolphins PearlClick here for a print friendly version
There are literally thousands of different slots out there at both land based and online casinos and they come from dozens of different developers. With so much choice, very few games can claim to be all-time classics but that is exactly where Dolphin's Pearl fits into the grand scheme of things, with many players having fond memories of the title's original release and just as many continuing to play it to this day. The game may have seen the release of something of a sequel in the form of Dolphin's Pearl Deluxe, but such is the quality of the action that this one still sees plenty of play and it remains exactly the same online as the original cabinet which hit casinos previously. This means fast paced action, great underwater themed visuals and plenty more that assure it of its place in history and whether you've played or not, our full feature below can act as the perfect refresher or a great introduction, ensuring that everyone is playing like an expert within minutes.
Dolphin's Pearl is classic both by name and nature and as with many of the most popular slot games of all time, much of its success can be attributed to the fact that each and every player can get started on the reels in absolutely no time. You certainly won't be overwhelmed by the layout or win lines, as five reels are complemented with nine potential winning combinations. Bets are placed using credits and it is up to the player to decide how many credits they wish to place on each of the lines, or indeed the actual number of lines that they wish to play over in the first place. No matter your decision, your line bet multiplied by the lines themselves will result in the total stake per spin. The more credits that you opt to place on a line, the more the symbols that land on those lines can potentially be worth. You can see those values for yourself by accessing the pay table that is an ever present option on the main screen and you'll also quickly notice that some symbols are worth considerably more than others. Indeed, at the lower end of the scale are the playing card icons which are mainly there to keep things ticking along. For bigger wins, you'll be after the various aquatic themed symbols, with prizes starting off when you match three of a kind and getting noticeably bigger for four or five on an active pay line. If you can combine four with a dolphin symbol then you will still get the five of a kind pay out, as the dolphin is wild and can fill in for anything other than the pearl.
That pearl is one symbol that takes no heed of the number of win lines in play. It acts as a scatter, meaning that two or more anywhere on the reels will lead to a decent cash prize. Indeed, five in view will pay the second highest prize on the game, a cool 4,500 coins. That's not all as the pearl symbol is also responsible for whisking players off to the bonus round which consists of completely free spins that use the same stake and win lines as the spin that led to them. The one crucial difference between the main game and the bonus round is that any prizes won during the latter will pay out at triple their original value, making this bonus game the best way of winning big.
No matter how big or small your wins, you can make them even bigger using the gamble game. Any spin prize is eligible for the additional round, where you can take your chances on the turn of a card. Guess the colour of the next draw correctly and your original prize becomes two times bigger!
