Hound Hotel Slots

Hound-HotelHound Hotel is a Microgaming slot machine, where the action takes place in a hotel destined for dogs. However, this isn’t your typical pet hotel, where you drop off your dog. The dogs look like humans when it comes to how they behave and dress, wearing jewelry, being hotel employees and drinking coffee, among other things. Thanks to the graphics and the features that are part of it, it can be a highly enjoyable game.

Hound Hotel has no less than 25 lines when they’re all active, and a total of 5 reels to host them. The features are pretty great, using Dashing Wilds, stacked wilds, scatters, free spins and bonus games. Its top prizes will offer up to $3,750.

Features of Hound Hotel

The game has more than just pretty graphics to offer, using among its features stacked wilds, Dashing Wild features, scatter symbols, the Hound Hotel bonus game and free spins with special wild features. If it sounds like a great game to play, that’s because it is just that.


As it happens in most modern slot machines, Hound Hotel also has its own wild symbol that will contribute to your enjoyment of the slot. In this case, it’s even better than usual, as these are stacked wild symbols. They are capable of substituting for any other symbol, as long as it’s a regular one, so the scatter symbol doesn’t get help from it. Wilds are capable of creating their own combinations, and it’s a bit easier than usual for them, since they can occupy multiple positions on a reel. Their payouts will reach a value of 500x.


The Dashing Wild feature is another one that Microgaming sometimes uses in its newer games. It’s a randomly triggered event, which will put on the reels three symbols with WILD Logos on them. These wilds will occupy random positions in the game, giving you an extra chance to form winning combos. They can only occur during non-winning spins, so they’re second chances that the game gives you.

The Bellboy is the game’s scatter, the one that will both reward you with prizes of up to 100x and will trigger the bonus feature of Hound Hotel. The cash rewards take into account the number of symbols with Bellboys that are scattered on the reels, it doesn’t matter where exactly, and they give you prizes based on that total. They go from 1x the bet, to 100x the bet.

Hound Hotel Bonus

The slot’s bonus game is a special one, very well handled, with the action revolving around the different floors of the hotel. You pick doors, and from each floor you get a different part of the free spins. The requirement to trigger this feature is for three or more Bellboys to appear on the reels.

The game starts on the 1st floor, where you pick a door and you find out what your special wild feature will be for the duration of the spins. The 2nd floor choice will tell you what kind of multiplier you can count on. The 3rd floor will let you know how many free spins you’ve won. You can also get extra picks from the doors found on the last two floors, so you can get more free spins or multipliers.


The 1st floor pick will determine what kind of wild feature you’re going to get, and I’ll talk more about the potential results below. You can only get one of these five wild features to be active during the free spins, and you can’t pick the one you prefer.

Super Stacked Wilds is the feature that will place huge wild stacks on the reels, 20 wild symbols being used for each stack, but available only on the 2nd and 4th reels.

Expanding Wilds is pretty much self-explanatory, the wild symbols being the kind that expand to cover the reel when that will contribute to a new combo being formed.

Wild Reels uses the 1st and the 5th reels, and makes them both wild for the duration of the free spins. Only the middle three reels will spin if you get this feature.

Split Wilds is the fourth possible feature, where any Hound Hotel Logo that appears splits into two symbols, though still occupying one space. They both contribute to the same combo, but instead of having a three symbol combo, you not get four symbols and a better payout. You can even get wins with six matching symbols in them, in which case you win twice as much as the five symbol combo would’ve given you.

Super Wild Reels is the fifth and final wild feature that you can get. You can have up to three reels wild during each spin. You’re guaranteed one wild reel out of the three in the middle, plus you can get a scatter symbol on the 1st or 5th reels and those become wild reels as a result.

Betting options and jackpots

Hound Hotel will not give you the option to change the number of active lines, all of them need to be used, but you can change a lot of other things about the wagers. First of all, you can use anywhere between 1 and 15 coins for each line bet. Next, you can change the denomination of the coins that are used, between $0.01 and $0.50. The line bet goes up to $7.50, while the total for 25 lines reaches $187.50.

The game doesn’t have huge rewards, but you can expect to get paid quite often while playing it. You can take home $3,750 with the help of the wild symbol, or up to $18,750 when five scatter symbols are present.

Design and symbols

The action in Hound Hotel takes place in a real hotel, a luxurious looking building, with three floors and a gorgeous architecture. There are small dog statues integrated into the roof of the building, there are large stone columns, flowers at all the windows and customers which are all dogs, and quite wealthy ones by the looks of it. The presence of the playing cards spoils the mood somewhat, but the game still looks great.


Symbols: Hound Hotel Logo (500x, wild), Bellboy (100x bet, scatter), Dog with coffee (450x), Wolf (400x), Poodle (300x), Terrier (200x), Pug (150x), Ace (125x), King (100x), Queen (75x) and Jack (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The game does a lot of things well, including the design and the feature aspects, so I would definitely recommend it, though I would urge you not to have huge dreams while playing it, it’s not going to make you rich.

You will find Hound Hotel at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
