Under the sea is the location for this 5-reel, 4-row and 1 to 40 variable paylines slot from Lightning Box with up to 1,000 coins in treasure to be unlocked on an active payline in Dolphin Gold!
Sleek and colourful graphics
The slot offers a sleek colourful coral and anemone background complete with starfish, crabs and pearls. The icons include marvellous illustrations of underwater sea life that includes a yellow seahorse, purple anemone, clown fish, turtle and sting ray. The entry level symbols include the K, Q, J, 10 and 9 poker symbols. For some added effect, animated shrimp travel up the bubbles used to separate the transparent reels and perpetual sound of air bubbles, lapping waves and seagulls reinforce the theme. If you listen long enough you may also hear the call of a blue dolphin or gold dolphin after a winning payline.
Blue dolphin and gold wild
The blue dolphin wild can replace any symbols and when forming part of a winning payline applies a 2x multiplier to all your winnings. This symbol can only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. There is a second dolphin symbol in the form of the gold dolphin wild and substitutes for all symbols except the blue dolphin wild. This symbol appears on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels. The appearance of 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 stacked symbols will award you with 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 or 21 free games. Finally, the slot offers a gamble feature triggered after a win during normal games. You can play either the red/black win or suit win for a double or nothing or quadruple or nothing chance.
Making a splash
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for Dolphin Gold is 95.303% with stakes that range from €0.01 to €400. Paylines are calculated based on the number of coins awarded according to the paytable multiplied by the bet per payline. Top prize is 25x your line bet with five blue dolphin or five gold dolphin symbols on an active payline dropping to 12.5x after that. Beyond the top two prizes the return drops precipitously making the blue wild, gold wild, free spins, gamble feature and combinations of winning paylines all the more important. This is the reason for why we recommend you play with all 40 paylines. The slot makes a splash with some terrific graphics and sound effects but it is hard to get overly excited about the payouts. Still, you may want to dive a little deeper into this slot before deciding either way which is why we suggest you try playing it for free before putting down any money.
