“Doggone” is a combination of “dog” and “gone”, but it can be a verb meaning “damn”. So, “Doggone Lucky” means a “dog gone lucky”—a lucky dog means a fortunate person. The Doggone Lucky symbols have three types of combinations. In the regular game, all symbols require three, four, or five winning combinations; in the free games mode, the three dogs and bag and belt require three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, or ten winning combinations; and the scatter needs three combinations.
