Firehouse Hounds slot machine from IGT has one of the most bizarre themes we have ever seen at Mobile Casino Man, to be precise a bunch of fire-fighting dogs. There are 5-reels, 30 paylines, and a max jackpot of 500x per line. The game has a free spins bonus round that offers between 4 and 6 spins. You can read all about the game in the full Firehouse Hounds slot review below.
Firehouse Hounds Slot Review & Game Bonus
Peaches and cream. Macaroni and cheese. Dogs and… fire-fighting? While some things are just meant to go together, we’re not entirely sure what IGT were thinking when they came up for the concept of the Firehouse Hounds slot, but that’s exactly what players will find when they take it for a spin.
Featuring five reels, 30 paylines and a randomly triggered bonus feature that can turn both the first and last reels wild, this fun 3D title once set the video slot industry on fire, but is now beginning to look a little flea-bitten thanks to some rather dated animations and an over-reliance on lucky sevens.
Couple that with an exceptionally cheesy piece of background music that’s more stripper pole than fireman’s pole and there are certainly plenty of reasons to give the game a wide berth, but the possibility of landing six free spins with two wild reels can potentially turn up the bonus game heat.
Hose Before Bros
As mentioned above, the main bonus aspect in the Firehouse Hounds slot machine is the presence of the randomly triggered Wild Fire feature, which sees the two animated dogs in front of the reels turn their hoses on the gameboard to transform the first column, last column or both into completely wild reels.
While this in itself can create some fairly substantial base game wins – especially when you consider that any combination of five lucky sevens will award a 40x payout, regardless of colour – it is during the free spins feature where Wild Fire comes into its own as both reels remain wild throughout.
Triggered whenever three or more fire bell symbols appear on the reels, players will initially have to select a pole to receive four, five or six free spins, with the two wild reels usually creating multiple winning paylines and substantial rewards. Although a fairly small free spins award to begin with, this feature can be re-triggered indefinitely by landing more fire bell symbols during the bonus games.
While the presence of free spins and wild reels means this dog hasn’t yet had its day, there can be no denying that the Firehouse Hounds slot is looking a bit long in the tooth compared to more modern slots.
