Dolphin Gold, launched in June 2015, is a casino game from Lightning Box Games. Dolphin Gold forms the basis for Dolphin Gold Stellar Jackpots (March 2017 slot game). Dolphin Gold is among the several games under Lightning Box Games’ Gold series; it is listed alongside Pixie Gold, Druidess Gold, Pioneers Gold, and Chilli Gold. Dolphin Gold should not be confused with rivals Gold Dolphin from Top Game or Golden Dolphin from iGaming2go; Dolphin Quest from Microgaming is another rival.
The title “Gold Dolphin” is based on a literally golden dolphin symbol, which shows up during the free games mode; the slot players match two, three, four, or five symbols.
Dolphin Gold Game Characteristics
Dolphin Gold has a 5X4 grid and 40 fixed pay lines. The following are the twelve symbols used in Dolphin Gold—ten ordinary symbols and two special symbols. The ordinary symbols are: a gray stingray, a greenish-brown turtle, a striped colorful fish, a yellow seahorse, multicolored coralline algae, a scaly blue K, a scaly purple Q, a scaly green J, a scaly golden-brown 10, and a scaly golden-yellow 9. The special symbols are: a “Doubled Bonus” blue dolphin and a “Wild Doubled” golden dolphin—they are both Wilds and substituting symbols.
Usually, the software first prompts the players to mute or unmute the sounds. A starting page might show up, showcasing piles of free games-supplementing “Wild Doubled” dolphins.
Here are the Dolphin Gold coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, and $2.00, $2.50, $5.00, and $10.00. The Dolphin Gold total bets are: $0.40 (minimum bet), $0.80, $1.20, $1.60, $2.00, $4.00, $8.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $80.00, $100.00, $200.00, and $400.00 (maximum bet).
The standalone Dolphin Gold symbols have these payouts. Two to five stingrays pay X5, X30, X125, and X500. Three, four, and five matching symbols pay: a turtle pays X25, X60, and X125; the striped fish has X15, X50, and X100; a sea horse or algae gives X10, X20, and X75; Ks, or Qs, or Js offers X5, X10, and X50; and 10s or 9s offers X5, X10, and X25.
When the symbols are accompanied by any special symbol (either a blue or golden dolphin) the payout is multiplied by two as follows. Stingrays with a dolphin offer X10, X, 60, X250, and X1000. Payouts for three/four/five-of-a kind are: a turtle with a dolphin pays X50, X, 120, and X250; striped fish and a dolphin offer X30, X100, and X200; seahorses or algae with a dolphin have X20, X, 40, and X150; Ks, or Qs, or Js with a dolphin offer X10, X20, and X100. The 10s or 9s with a dolphin pay X10, x20, and X50.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven and twelve blue dolphins offer three free games, six free games, nine free games, twelve free games, 15 free games, 18 free games, and 21 free games, respectively.
The Dolphin Gold software is good. Players will love the pop, and gushing and bubbling water sounds. The graphics are awesome, ranging from the sparkling sea blue coloration and the vividly colored coral reef to the playful lobster gracing the bubbly partitioning of the grid.
