K9 Capers may sound a little odd for a game title, but seeing the doghouse icon, everything falls into place. K9 is for canine, what else, and the game is all about two canines, Butch and Fifi, the pink poodle. Pink poodle? Yep, to show that Fifi there is a female poodle, and Butch there isn't. Well, I'm not much of a dog lover, preferring felines instead, but anyone can play this game. It's a very straightforward game, with only one feature game to aim for, and that's the 'K9 Capers' feature game, what else. It's an oldie game and the graphics shows that. Nothing much to like on its appearance, so hopefully the gameplay can make up for all its shortcomings.
Butch, the male dog, is the Wild symbol, and is a truly dumb symbol. It only substitute other symbols except for Fifi, the Scatter symbol. It expands into a Wild Reel on reel 3 when in a winning combination, but doesn't double any wins. Hmm. That doesn't help much at all in creating winning chances. What a shame. Fifi, the pink Poodle, is the Scatter symbol, paying 100x the total bet for 5 of her, and getting 3 or more of Fifi triggers the K9 Capers feature game. For the symbols, the Neck Collar pays 6000x, the Doghouse pays 3000x, the Dish pays 1000x, the Doll pays 500x and the rest pay from 250x to 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. The paytable is slightly on the low side, but is acceptable enough. Not too bad.
In the K9 Capers feature game, Fifi is hiding in one of the 5 locations. Find Fifi in as little picks of the locations as you can. Finding Fifi in 1 pick pays 100x the total bet. In 2 picks, 25x. In 3 picks, 10x, but in the last 4th pick, the prize drops to just 3x the total bet amount. So finding Fifi in 1 or 2 picks is essential to win a good or decent prize. Other than this feature game there is nothing else to look for. There aren't any Free Spins game either.
I guess the worst part of playing this K9 Capers game is the lack of interesting features in it. That Butch expanding on reel 3 only certainly isn't exciting enough, because it doesn't double any wins with it. The pick-and-win feature games too are rather dull and boring, always ending up with low to mediocre wins of less than 10x the total bet, and up to 30x the total bet amount, as far as I have won them. Getting it right with the first pick requires lots of luck. A small chance in getting it, but not impossible. I didn't get it of course. What's more, the highest possible win in this game is only 200x the total bet for getting 5 of those Dog Collar symbols on a payline. Hardly incentive enough for big-wins hunters, and not even attractive enough for casual players.
