It turns out that after all these years we finally found out who let the dogs out, it was Relax Gaming! Although, to be fair, these rough yet lovable dogs were probably going to get out anyway. Their street smarts and thuggish yet cute looks were bound to get them out eventually.
This interesting take on animal / street style video slot game comes to us from the minds of Relax Gaming. If they were trying to do something to make their game stand out then they did it because this theme is pretty original.
Come with us as we step into the streets run by these Top Dawgs, we’ll let you know not only how to survive out here but how to thrive and how to score big.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this title is a mashup of adorable dogs and street style. It’s a pretty unique and interesting take but it works surprisingly well.
The afternoon sun sets on the street where these dogs roam, you can see the big city off in the distance where the city dogs attend their 9 – 5 jobs. Palm trees grow on either side of the road, almost tricking you into thinking that this is some sort of paradise. Shoes hang from the telephone wires up above, shoes from a human.
The musical backtrack fits really well to the theme that is being presented, it adds so much to the setting. There are voice over clips that play when you land something big or trigger a bonus feature which is a nice touch, you aren’t alone in the streets and this little detail drives that home. There’s even a sound effect that plays when you stop the reels, a sound of shoes squeaking to a halt.
Animations are great, unfortunately the background is static but the animations that play on winning spins makes up for it. The reels spin effortlessly, helping to bring the game to the next level.
Overall, Relax Gaming did a great job realising their fun vision. As a concept it’s pretty weird but all the individual parts come together to make this game fun and unique.
We’ll begin with the low-paying icons, these are represented by playing card values. Get ready to see J, Q, K and A appear quite often as you spin the reels.
The dogs are the symbols you’ll want to keep an eye out for as you play the game. There are four in total and each has their own unique look and style. You won’t miss them when they appear on your reels.
A big gold studded W represents this game’s Wild symbol. The Wild will help you build winning combos throughout the game as it substitutes for all the common icons.
A purple car is the title’s Scatter symbol. Landing enough of these will trigger a bonus gameplay feature.
