K9 Capers Slots

K9-CapersThemed around dogs, K9 Capers doesn’t do anything truly original with its theme, but it does manage to look like a cute slot machine, which is something that a lot of players are looking for when they’re playing these kind of games. Microgaming is the designer behind this particular slot machine, and I think they did a decent job with it, at least at a quick first glance.

There are 30 paylines and a total of 5 reels in K9 Capers. The features are not as impressive as in other slots, with a bonus game, a scatter and a wild present. The jackpot looks slightly better though, worth $24,000.

Features of K9 Capers

Once the game starts, you will want to see the game’s main character, Butch, as often as possible, even though it’s only visible on one reel. This is the expanding wild, and he’s accompanied by Fifi, the scatter symbol, the one that gets you access to the only bonus game available.


Butch is a wild symbol, an expanding one, that can appear only on the 3rd reel. Whenever it makes that appearance, no matter where exactly it lands, Butch will expand and cover the entire reel. It can be part of any combination that needs a wild symbol in the third position, meaning that it already has matching symbols on at least the first and second reels. The expanding part only comes into play if a winning combo will result from it. Otherwise, the wild Butch sticks to its original position and doesn’t expand.


Fifi is the scatter symbol of K9 Capers, the poodle that Butch is in love with. As a scatter, the symbol appears wherever it wishes, and it triggers the bonus game and cash prizes when at least three are present. First of all, the scatter offers payouts of up to 100x the bet, for up to five of them present. It can also trigger the bonus game, and that one also gives up to 100x the bet as prizes.

Bonus Game

The bonus game requires 3+ Fifi scatters on the reels. Once the game starts, you have the backyard in front of you, and you have to guess where Fifi is hidden. You pick a maximum of five spots from the backyard. The quicker you find Fifi, the bigger the prize you take home. The biggest one, for finding her on your first try, is at 100x the bet.


Betting options and jackpots

You can wager as many coins on each line as you want, within the 1 to 20 coins range. Each coin is worth between $0.01 and $0.20, so bets of up to $4 per line, or $120 total, are possible.

You get a 6,000x jackpot in K9 Capers, which means up to 120,000 coins, but only $24,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The game’s surrounding graphics don’t give you a very clear idea of what the slot is about. There is a park, with grass, trees and street lights, while in the distance you see the tall buildings of a city. On the reels it’s all about the dogs though, with the two heroes, with food bowls, ripped up teddy bears and playing cards with paw prints all around them.


Symbols: Butch (wild), Fifi (scatter, 100x total wager), Collar (6,000x), Dog House (3,000x), Food Bowl (1,000x), Teddy Bear (500x), Ace (250x), King (250x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The game has its pros, the graphics and the theme being the main ones, but the features are far from being impressive. A big fan of dogs will probably enjoy it a lot more.

K9 Capers can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
