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 :(
