Dolphins Pearl Deluxe, one of the most well-rounded slots.

Novomatic has a line of slots based on a sea theme -Sharky and Lord of the Ocean. Dolphins Pearl Deluxe is one of the newer additions to this theme and it offers something the others can’t. Simplicity and value.

Dolphins Pearl Deluxe is the Deluxe version of the popular nine payline slot – Dolphins Pearl. Players loved the classic 9-line design that made it available for a broad range of players. With small betting options, free spins and multipliers, Dolphins Pearl Deluxe continues the hype its predecessor built.

Adding value to the player doesn’t stop with bonus features. You will also notice an extra pay line, giving it a total of 10. You may think one extra pay line is a small addition, but in reality, it makes a big difference. That one little pay line makes the max payout worth 90,000 coins when you get five dolphin symbols on the reels.

Underwater themes are nothing new to the world of online slots. One that comes to mind immediately is Enchanted Mermaid. Dolphins Pearl Deluxe is quite similar in design to one of the most popular online slots. It does, however, have many unique characteristics that give it its personality.

Gameplay controls are the most noticeable difference. Novomatic controls should be nothing new to those who have spun the reels on a Novomatic slot. But, it can be a bit awkward if you haven’t. Instead of control buttons laid out on the button like most online slots. Dolphins Pearl Deluxe has you open up a menu to access all controls.

Another aspect of this slot I found is that it can be more volatile than slots you may be used to. With an RTP just over 96%, this puts Dolphins Pearl Deluxe below the average when it pertains to variance. I noticed that you win larger amounts compared to most slots. But, those wins can be hard to find at times.

One of the fundamental aspects of the design of Dolphins Pearl is its ability to work across all platforms. If you play on a laptop, you can access the slot in its flash version to play without having to download any software.

What’s even better is, it works perfectly on mobile devices. Playing from an iPhone, or Android device is the way to play Dolphins Pearl Deluxe.

Short game explanation / pros and cons

Free spins and wild multipliers are the main features on Dolphins Pearl Deluxe. If oysters make you cringe, you better start getting used to them since they will become your new favorite sea creature.

Three or more of these yummy shellfish will trigger the free spin bonus round. You will get 15 free spins to start, with the chance to win more if you keep getting oyster symbols during these free spins. And while 15 free spins as a base are more than many slots offer, you will also get a 3x multiplier on any win in free spin mode.

Free spins aren’t all you have to forward to seeing. Being based on dolphins, you would expect to see this friendly animal somewhere in the game. A dolphin symbol is present and serves as the game’s wild symbol.

We all know that dolphins are humans best friend in the ocean. They will also be your best friend in Dolphins Pearl Deluxe. When any win is produced using a wild symbol, your prize amount is doubled.

Other symbols will include more sea creatures like lobsters, tropical fish, manta rays and the typical 9 through Ace card symbols found in most online slots.

I mentioned before about the game controls. And I wanted to touch on the once more. I do find them awkward at first but only took a few spins to find my comfort zone.

In game bonus features

One of my favorite features in a slot is a gamble feature. Dolphins Pearl Deluxe adds this element into its features to give you a complete slot experience.

After any winning spin, you can elect to play the gamble feature by clicking on the function control located on the left side of the reels. You can try to double up your win by guessing which color the face down card will be.

Choosing the correct color will double up your win. But, picking incorrectly, will see your win from that spin going back to the sea.

Final Thoughts

Dolphins Pearl Deluxe isn’t the best looking online slot you will find. The colors and overall design are vibrant with its deep blues and immersive color pallet. But I’ve seen better looking for sure.

What players love the most, is the slots versatility.

Dolphins Pearl Deluxe that is easy enough for anyone to jump right on and start playing with little learning to do. Betting ranges also suit a full scope of bankrolls.

In game bonus features that can reward you well, mixed with a mobile friendly design make Dolphins Pearl Deluxe on the most well-rounded slots I have recently played.
