A Bark in The Park slot review
Okay, get your pooper scoopers ready as Genesis Gaming are taking you for a walk with your pet mutts for A Bark In The Park! There is a gentle classical music backdrop to this 1024-way slot over 5 reels and 4 rows and naturally the pampered pooches make up the prime symbols along with the standard card letters and numbers.
The card symbols are stacked in various amounts of either 1, 2 or 3 rows high. The dog symbols are either single or in stacks of 2 but it is possible to get 3 in view on some reels simultaneously. The fluffy brown dog (which looks more like a lion!) is the top - paying symbol at 7.5x stake for 5-of-a-kind. This sounds low, but bear in mind it is feasible to get tens of combinations due to the stacks. There is a Wild symbol with no multiplier on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the form of a pile of coloured dog collars.
You do get golden paw prints on all reels and 3 or more will produce 8 free games, up to 20 for all 5. You can retrigger them or just 2 further scatters will add 5 extra free games (I think you know where this is going.....) and the Wilds when appearing in a win become cumulative multipliers randomly giving a 2, 3 or 4x multiplier. If all 3 appear then it is possible to have a 64x multiplier on any 5-of-a-kind wins in the bonus.
A Bark In The Park slot is a rehash of an old but popular slot formula. The RTP of 95.18% is good, but isn't outstanding. Genesis Gaming have made this exact game several times including Rich Panda, Dinosaur Adventure, Reindeer Wild Wins and Savanna King so it's just too formulaic. Yes, this idea has given birth to greats like Raging Rhino and Buffalo Blitz and is popular, but do we need yet another clone? I certainly won't be taking this one for 'walkies'...
