Dolphin’s Pearl Slot Machine

European bricks and mortar (B&M) casino slots players, in particular those from the UK, Austria and Germany will probably be very familiar with Dolphins Pearl, one of the Novoline slot games. For those who aren’t, you can play Dolphins Pearl at GFM to see why it has become something of a cult slot game.Novomatic are a German software company who make a series of “Novoline” slot machines seen in B&M casinos and now, more frequently as it happens, online at popular casinos like the online version of the land-based Grosvenor Casinos. The ‘Gaminator’ machines, ‘Multi-Gaminator’ and single kiosk versions are commonplace around European casinos and house various Novoline slot machines. I often play Dolphins Pearl and Book Of Ra at Rendezvous casino in Brighton (UK) or the Empire in Leicester Square.The online version of Dolphin’s Pearl is the “Deluxe” edition. This has 10 paylines as opposed to the original’s 5 and is in fact pretty much identical in gameplay to another popular Novomatic slot machine called “Egyptian Experience”. That one isn’t online as I write but if you know it well then, theme aside obviously, you get the same game with Dolphin’s Pearl.Like most casino slots from Novomatic, the Dolphins Pearl slot is highly volatile. Without getting the free spin feature you can pretty much forget walking away with a decent profit unless you are really lucky. Bu the free spin feature is good: 15 spins at 3x and it frequently retriggers. I’ve had up to 75 spins in some sessions although you have to say that isn’t the “norm”! The video from Slotjunkies (above) actually shows the free spin feature retriggering multiple times.

The wild symbol is the Dolphin itself which appears on every reel and doubles all wins. The scatter symbol is the Pearl and 3 or more of those in view at any one time triggers the free spin feature.

You have to treat Dolphin’s Pearl with respect. Bet low (online you can bet far more than the £2 that the land-based Gaminator machines max out at) and play carefully but you can have some good sessions if you do. For the record, other Novomatic slots that appear on the Gaminator machines that you can now play online include Book Of Ra and Lucky Lady’s Charm.
