There are quite a number of Dolphin-themed games around, with almost every game provider having such a game in their list, so I was expecting Dolphin Tale to be yet another similar addition to Microgaming's list, but I was dead wrong! As its title implies, Dolphin Tale has a tale to tell. Play the game to know the tale, know the tale to enjoy the wins, enjoy the wins and tell the tale!

This game might as well be entitled 'Dolphin Tale : The Rookie', because that's what it is exactly about - a Rookie cop dolphin. 5 of them pay 3000x the line bet, but being such a rookie, it doesn't double any wins or anything like that but just to substitute other symbols for additional wins in the usual manner. The Rookie has an informer and a spy, the Clam, which is the Scatter symbol and pays 50x the total bet for 5 of them. Get 3, 4 or 5 of the spy Clams and get awarded with a choice of 5 different Free Spins games like you've never or hardly seen before! You can only choose 1 of the 5 choices, so do choose with care and discretion. The choices are: 25 free spins with all wins x2, x3 or x5, 20 free spins with all wins x2, x4 or x7, 15 free spins with all wins x3, x6 or x8, 10 free spins with all wins x5, x8 or x12, and 5 free spins with all wins x10, x15 or x20. More Free Spins games cannot be retriggered.

Walrus the Chief pays 1000x, Merl the squid pays 500x, Karl the turtle pays 300x, Lucile the fish pays 200x and Louie the shrimp pays 150x, all as per line bet. Other lower symbols pay from 100x down to 40x the line bet, from the Casino down to the Diner symbol. During the Free Spins game, Extra Wilds can randomly appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 to create additional wins.

Firstly, I like the graphical presentation of the cartoon symbols, which are big and nice looking, but the dolphin Rookie and the Spy Clam symbols could do with some better highlighting for better distinction of their Wild and Scatter roles. Secondly, I like the 5 different choices of Free Spins games provided, from 25 free spins with 2x multiplier down to just 5 free spins with 20x multiplier. In my various plays, I had tried each and everyone of the 5 choices, but it still boils down to playing the game at the right time to get nice big payouts from any of the 5 choices. No single choice would pay big all the time, or vice versa, and the payouts that I have had ranged from under 10x my total bet up to about 140x. No wins had exceeded the 200x total bet amount as yet, but playing Dolphin Tale can be a good and very enjoyable experience.
There are only 2 things that I don't quite like about this Dolphin Tale game - the low paytable and no retriggering of the Free Spins Game. 5 free spins with a 20x multiplier may still end up with a blardy small win, so a retrigger of it would certainly make a huge difference to the rating.

I cannot stress enough how much I like games that offer different features. Dolphin Tale Slot is one of them. It is a game from Microgaming software and even though I did not make any progress, financially speaking I really enjoyed playing it. This game offers a free spins feature with different multipliers which makes it very unique. Also the wilds are appearing very often. I even got four wilds while I was playing. You cannot imagine the excitement. Also, the wins in this game are pretty decent, but you need a multiplier to win a big amount.

This 5 reels 40 pay line game has a very exciting theme. As a player you need to keep the underwater world free of crime. This game has a wild symbol “Rookie” which can substitute for all the symbols except for the scatter which is the Spy Clam. I must say that this is a very exciting game, at least for me and I cannot wait to play it again very soon.

You need 3 or more scattered clams to open the bonus game. Once you are in the bonus game you will see 5 suspects lined up from which you have to choose to get the number of free spins and a multiplier. There are 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 free spins. Each spin amount has different multipliers. You get bigger multipliers for smaller amount of spins. After you finish choosing the number of free spins and multipliers another screen will open and it will show you your wins. This game was designed to give you better chance of winning big. Wilds can appear randomly during the free spins on reels 2, 3 and 4. If you are lucky to get a 5 of a kind win on a high multiplier you can walk away with cash in your pocket. This is a game with a very big potential for extra big wins.
Hat off, hat off! This is another Microgaming old video slot, which I am just tried recently, and nominating for best old game! Very interesting game, I swear, I will play this game again for sure, and added it to my txt file with games which I liked and which I am want to play a bit more and try again.

Game looks awesome! Microgaming not only creates awesome symbols, but they also care about this game, and write short description about half of paying symbols. Something very small and probably many players will not even notice it, but I really like it! Also there is 40 paylines, so min bet is quite big, 0.40 per spins.

Base game here is a bit not interesting, because for 40 lines game payouts are quite sucks, very low. Wilds appears on all reels, but unfortunately even for 5 wilds payout is less than 100 x total bet, and also wilds do not have multiplier. Nothing else to say, because base game is not so interesting to write anything else about it.

There is super freespins feature. It can be triggered by 3 or more scatters, and you need to pick your feature, here are options:
25 FS with random multiplier 2x, 3x, 5x
20 FS with random multiplier 2x, 4x, 7x
15 FS with random multiplier 3x, 6x, 8x
10 FS with random multiplier 5x, 8x, 12x
5 FS with random multiplier 10x, 15x, 20x
Also during freespins on reels 2, 3, 4 possible to get extra wild symbols which substitute for all symbols. Payouts can be superb on 10FS or 5FS, but other FS features can also pay moderate money. Made about 400 spins in this slot because really like it, have about 5 FS features, best result been x120 total bet, picked 15FS. Great potential during FS, but unfortunately it is cannot be retriggered.
Awesome slot game. I have only one complaint - why FS feature can not be retriggered :(
Dolphins Tale is a very interesting game that you must catch when it is in the good mood. If you don't, then get ready to lose some cash. With its 40 lines it is not a cheap game to play and can make or break a player.

The graphics in this game are pretty good and feature criminals and the justice servants. Apparently even under water they cant find peace. The sound effect are also good and keep me interested and happy.

The thing that makes this game good and in some ways unique is the feature. It has free spins with different multipliers and you need to pick one that is best suited for you. Obviously the higher the multiplier the lower the spins, but it is a risk that many are willing to take. I always pick 15 free spins and if I have cash go for 5. To be honest I always make more on 15 but maybe one day can catch a good line hit on 20x.

The wilds are also pretty cool in this game and there are moments when the game is spitting them out none stop. By best hit was when I got four wild, with the fifth one being just on top of the reel.

The pays in this game are quite decent but require a multiplier to win big.
The game is really moody. Those damn clams just never show up and cause me a big headache. I had tomes when I started playing this game with a balance of €100 or more and only get the feature when I had around €10 or €20 left. And even then could not win anything decent. The other thing that is bad is that the game chooses the multiplier and most of the time awards the smallest one.

Over all the game has its moment but should be closed when gone bad. My rating 6 out of 10.

The next slot game that I have played is the Dolphin Tale slot , it is a 5 reel 40 payline video slot machine featuring terrific animation, sounds and an overall exciting theme that deserves commending Microgaming the creators of this game on. As the player you focus will be to help keep the underwater city's streets free of crime by putting the appropriate blocks behind bars. Dolphin Tale features a wild, multiplier and scatter. The jackpot carries a value of 3000 and can be won by hitting 5 wilds on an active payline.

Dolphin Tale features a free spins bonus round where you get to choose between 1 of 5 different spin selections each of which has a random multiplier associated with it. To get into the bonus round you simply have to get 3 clam symbols scattered across the reels to enter into the bonus. I strongly believe that its free spin bonus will definitely give you guys limitless of joys and excitement. There are25 free spins with a 2x, 3x or 5x random multiplier as well as 20 free spins with a 2x, 4x or 7x random multiplier.As you can see from the selections that can be made in the free spins bonus round .there is a quite a lot of potential for large wins in this game.

Thus, we should try our best to enjoy the overall theme of this game and believe that the colourful setting and overall concept for the theme can be appreciated by all players. The one thing we truly do enjoy about this Dolphin Tale slot game is that it is oriented around taking you out of the realm of reality and away from the idea that you're playing at your computer. They do this by focusing on having a design and user interface that are not overly computer looking but are themed more to the game and style within the game.

Dolphin Tales is a theme of authority figures, crime, rookies climbing up the ranks, justice and the community. Basically, it's the life of the following if they were all living underwater! In this 40 paylines underwater society brings about it's awesome choice of free spins that after hitting 3 scattered clams, I will look at the line-up for "Seaspects" (A term for an underwater suspect...clever eh.). Many choices can be seen!! They were from 5 to 25 Free spins with multipliers from a small 2x all the way to 20x. So many choices to choose from....I literally have to think about it on every trigger!

The lower the free spins, the higher the multiplier.....but when choosing something like 5 Free spins, there is a chance that I will receive the usual 10x or something better to bargain for like 15x or 20x. The choice of free spins are up to me BUT......the multipliers were up to chance so I could get...for another example 25 Free spins at 2x in one trigger or 25 Free spins at 5x in another! My choices would come as 15 Free spins at 3x usually. Sometimes I will take down a nicer multiplier for 6x. Even when I'm very low in my balance or I want to take a huge risk, I would even go as far as to take 5 Free spins with an undecided multiplier. Of course it's for the obvious reason of getting least....but it sounds more irresistible to see 15x or 20x in 5 free spins!!!

On 15 Free spins I will come across at least $20 if I get a 3x multiplier......$50 if it proceeds with 6x but on rare occasions of choosing 5 Free spins at 10x I'll get an estimated $60 - $70 if my free spins are friendly on each whopping 20x multiplying free spins, 5 times or maybe just in the 4 Free spins! It's only 3 times that I've came with 15x on 5 Free spins but only once, for the highest 20x multiplier!! I do like random Dolphins showing up on the reels especially on the low free spins containing very high multipliers. Those are very demanding for very little free spins!
Difficulty can be discovered with the scattered Spy Clams. They often don't appear too much that it will be very hard to find them each time I spin the reels. Their shortcomings of appearing once and more so...twice...when they are near the stop of a on reels 3 and 4 or 4 and 5! The chances of hitting this amazing free spins feature can be, to my guess, came in odds of 1 in 60 or 1 to 100 on my 2 coin bets. It can go dead for very long without the free spins so be warned!!
