I’m sure most of you who have arrived on this page already know the Dolphin’s Pearl slot from land-based casinos. Although not quite as prevalent as the Book of Ra slot, Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe is pretty much identical in gameplay to the Lucky Lady’s Charm game, Egyptian Experience and the popular Gryphon’s Gold game (all of which can be found online to play for free or real money). The Deluxe version powered by Novomatic was created on the popularity of its classic predecessor, the 9-line Dolphin’s Pearl slot. They’re essentially the same slot, but with an extra pay-line and upgraded graphics. It is available to play across desktop, on mobile and tablet devices.
The video slot takes you under the sea with various sea creatures
as your symbols; lobsters, seahorses, stingrays, Angelfish and Rainbowfish fill the reels with playing card values Nine, Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace. The dolphin is what you should look out for as it’s the highest paying icon, the game’s Wild and even comes with a great x2 multiplier; if one or more Wilds appear as substitutes in winning combinations, your win will be doubled. It can take the place of every symbol except the Scatter which is the pearl oyster. It’s the second highest paying icon, five-of-a-kind pearl oysters will get you 100,000 your bet. The Scatter’s role in the game is to trigger that very lucrative bonus feature. Scatter pays in the base game as well as in the bonus round. You also have some icons like the dolphin, the stingray, the lobster, nine and the pearl oyster which pay out with 2-of-a-kind on a win-line. The rest need to be three or more on a winning pay-line to score a prize. The game has some good graphics going on and the soundtrack is conventional Novomatic.
Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe is another Novomatic high variance slot which takes on the very popular 5x3 reel layout and 10 adjustable pay-lines. The RTP, that is how much you get back, is 96.18% which is quite a good number. The minimum bet per line is 0.04 credits and the maximum is 10.00 credits. After each spin, you can collect your winnings or double it using the Gamble function. As in most Gaminator games, all you have to do is guess correctly what colour (red or black) Ace is next in the pack.
The Free Games Feature is a 15 free spins at 3x bonus round with fairly frequent retriggers. The 3x multiplier means that all your winnings from the feature will be trebled. You can activate it by hitting three or more Scatters on the reels. It’s actually the retriggers that are the key to Dolphin’s Pearl. Yes, it is hard to get the feature in the first place but because extra Dolphin’s Pearl Scatter symbols are added to the reels, it is not uncommon to get 30, 45 or even more free spins within one feature. That’s when you start to see decent returns from Dolphin’s Pearl and regular Novomatic players will recognise this trait from many other Novomatic games, most notably Katana, Lucky Lady’s Charm and the very original Fairy Queen. It’s an indicator of a very volatile game but also brings with it the anticipation (not always realised LOL) of a big win!
In fact, Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe is like most of the Novomatic slots in that it is high variance – or in other words, volatile! You need a decent bankroll and a lot of patience to profit from Dolphins Pearl – or a lot of luck – but I have to admit that along with Book of Ra and the similar Lord of The Ocean, Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe is one of my favourite online slot games.
