Barkin’ Mad Review
Cats are not the only popular creatures in the modern Internet. Other animals also can find a room in minds and hearts of the modern users. The developers of the software for online gambling have also been affected by mad adoration of cats, but happily they don't forge about dogs as well. Well, Barcrest company has released a new online video slot named «Barkin’ Mad», which is intended first of all for the real dog-men. We are going to talk about this funny game created with elements of 3D graphics in the following review prepared by the team of Casinoz.
Play Barkin’ Mad
«Barkin’ Mad» is the slot machine with fifteen symbols at the screen located by 5x3 scheme. We could say that it is the five reeled model, but the developer insist that every of fifteen positions is the special reel.
There are ten active lines here. All of them are always active on default. Bets per each of the lines are always the same. An amount of the bet can vary in range from one cent to forty dollars. This way, the maximal acceptable bet per spin is four hundred dollars.
The player also can activate Big Bet feature staking a bet in amount over twenty dollars. In this case five spins are triggered at once. The bonus round named Showtime can get started in any of them. Please read about it below.
The general options of this video slot are the basic and the special symbols, prize games, free spins, extra multipliers of payoffs and some other features.
The standard symbols bring payoffs forming continuous chains at the active lines. The combinations consist of several similar symbols, which have to be situated next to each other starting from the first left reel. As usually, only the longest combination (it is the most valuable one) at each of the lines gives a winning, that’s why it is possible to make up to ten paid combinations by results of the same spin.
An amount of the payoff gifted to the customer is calculated by two values: the bet per line and the index of formed combination (from x0,25 to x500). These values are multiplied by each other. In case of several combinations formed at different lines by results of the same spin, all the payoffs are summarized. The total amount of the prize is immediately transferred to the player’s account, because the gambling feature is not provided by the rules.
Please read about the symbols, which act by the special rules, below.
It is interesting that this model works by three different payment tables. One of them is provided only for spins by the bet under two credits, the second is for rounds by higher bets and the third for the spins with Big Bet feature. Of course, the indexes are essentially different. You can see that playing by higher amount is more profitable. But please always remember about your financial capabilities.
The theoretical cash back index of this game varies in range from 94% to 96% depending on the selected strategy. According to the information provided by the developers, it is possible to reach the maximal index playing by Big Bet.
