Dogs are not always a man's best friend, and this slot displays the proof. Canine Carnage carries a theme that depicts a world where dogs have replaced the human race. They do all modern things like drive around in cars and race against each other. We know that this is out of the ordinary, but the slot's icons, background, and other elements are consistent, making Canine Carnage bizarre and unique.
Play'n Go is the creator behind this slot; they are known to create games with unique concepts and fun features. Play'n Go has a large portfolio which showcases this. It includes titles such as Moon Princes 100, The Wild Class, and Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches. Some of their slots are extremely unique, but Canine Carnage tops the charts.
Canine Carnage has the basic 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols and then also premium icons. Premium symbols are different punk-style dogs that are represented by the colours green, blue, purple, and red. Players can be awarded with 1.2x, 1.6x, 2x, and 3x their total stake size, respectively, when 5 of the premium symbols match on the payline.
There are also wilds present in this game they are represented by a cog that has a golden W and a skull on it. The wilds can create winning combinations on the paylines. Finally, there is a scatter symbol - it is linked to the main bonus.
The first bonus feature in Canine Carnage is able to be activated at any time. Players could be awarded a multiplier, or many, which drops into view anywhere on the board. If a matching combination is made, the multiplier will be applied to the potential winnings for that round. It is a simple feature that goes a long way, it is often only incorporated in free spin modes.
Secondly, there is a collect mechanic that revolves around golden bones, it sporadically appears during any spin. There will be a random value attached to each bone, up to 5x the stake size. If a collect symbol appears at the same time, any values on the screen will be collected and awarded to the player. 3, 4, 5, or 6 golden bones can be in play at the same time.
Lastly, there is a free spins bonus mode. Players will be awarded six spins if three scatter symbols appear in any position. When this mode is in play, regular symbols disappear, and only the golden bones will remain, they are instantly collected should they land. In addition to this, the associated value will be added to a pot at the top of the reels.
When a collector symbol lands, the player will be awarded the total value of the pot. Multiplier symbols can also make an appearance, and they will be applied to the pot total. Multipliers will be constantly added up every time any land during this round. Lastly, splitter icons can also fall into play. As the name suggests, these symbols will split the golden bone and create a duplicate that will appear on the reel directly to the right of the original.
This game carries an unusual theme. It is excellent for punters to see something out of the ordinary and entertaining. It comes as a given with all Play'n Go releases, but it is hard to not mention that Canine Carnage carries high-quality visuals, a simple interface, and mobile compatibility.
