Barkin’ Mad Overview
In a world full of classic, fruit-themed slot games, Barkin’ Mad slots is truly a different breed (pun intended!). It has five reels, three rows and ten fixed paylines; the design is cartoonish and the reels are set on a large garden containing a kennel, a tree with a “Beware of the dog” sign and a rickety wooden fence.
Four different dogs represent the higher value symbols while the standard playing card icons 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild symbol is a white cloud which animates to show the words ‘Wild’ and ‘Help’ and substitutes for all other symbols except for the Barkin’ Mad logo which is the scatter and activates all the features.
How To Play Barkin’ Mad
The first thing you need to do before you join these cute puppers is to set your bet. This can be done by clicking the “-/+” button by ‘Stake/Line’ field and choose between 0.01 and 40.00. The ten paylines are fixed, therefore their number cannot be changed. Now, the value of the stake per line you choose is multiplied by the number of paylines and that gives you your total bet. You don’t have to do the math by yourself – the stake will be displayed in a window right next to the number of paylines. It ranges from 0.10 to 400.00. You can also go for the ‘Big Bet’ option which will be explained below.
When you’re ready to start, push the ‘Spin’ button to set the reels in motion or use the ‘Autoplay’ option to set the reels to spin automatically and without interruption for up to 200 times. You can also set win/loss limits.
The ‘Help’ button provides information about the payouts, the bonus features, as well as the general game rules.
How To Win Barkin’ Mad Slots
The 10, J and Q playing card icons are the lowest-paying symbols in Barkin’ Mad slots. Landing five of them on a payline will award you 5 times your bet per line. Next are the K and A icons which are worth 10x the bet per line. The pictures of dogs with a green and a blue background pay 20x the bet per line for five, whereas the one with a red background is worth 30x for five-of-a-kind combination.
The fierce-looking dog with a bone in his mouth is the most rewarding symbol in the game, paying 50 times your bet per line for landing five of it on a payline.
Barkin’ Mad Bonus Features
There are three different choices when it comes to setting the stake – the first one is less than £2.00 per spin, the second is £2.00 or more and the third one is the Big Bet option. Keep in mind that the multiplier returns decrease as the stakes go higher.
The Big Bet option means that you must be playing with stakes of £2.00 per spin or higher; selecting the High Big Bet option will then offer you the chance to buy five ‘linked’ spins for at least 10x that stake. If during the Big Bet you land two scatter symbols, it will trigger another random icon to change into a third scatter or a prize multiplier.
Barkin’ Mad Free Spins
Landing three or more of the Barkin’ Mad scatter symbols anywhere in view triggers this bonus feature. For that, you will receive ten free spins. Four or five triggering symbols will award additional two or four spins respectively.
During the free spins, any wild symbol which will land on the reels will remain in place, increasing the chances to land winning combinations.
Wild Dog Multiplier
After any non-winning spin a Wild Dog multiplier may be added to the reels and be applied to any win to which it contributes.
This is randomly awarded bonus, but it’s only available if you are playing with ‘Big Bet’ stakes. If you trigger it, you’ll get to play a Wheel Of Fortune game which will award a multiplier of your win or entry into the free spins round.
