Barkin’ Mad by Barcrest in partnership with SG Interactive and WMS is easily my favourite dog related slot. There is so much going on I’m going to save myself some work by copy and pasting from the slots help file at the end of the review! Instead I am going to post a couple more screenshots, the first one shows you the sticky wilds that happen during free spins, the second screenshot is the Showtime extra bonus that only happens when playing the big bet.
Slots Guide Verdict:
As you can see there is some huge potential for massive wins with this slot due to the sticky wilds for the duration of free spins. It is possible to land 15 scatters (though highly unlikely) so free spins can range from 10 free spins for 3 scatters, 12 for 4 scatters, 14 for 5 scatters right up to 34 free spins for a full house of scatters. 10 to 14 is the usual though. The point is that even with only 10 free spins it is likely you will end the spins with a good few sticky wilds meaning almost guaranteed prizes. If you land 14 free spins you really have to be hoping for well over 100 times your stake. We have had much bigger wins than that and we do of course enjoy using the big bet feature when our bank balance is healthy enough to afford 20 or 30 quid per spin and the wins in there can be phenomenal!
To summarise, a brilliantly original slot with features a plenty and it looks good on the eyes too! Love it!
