If you’re one of those people that habitually shares pictures of your dog on Instagram, why not curb those impulses and avoid the ire of your friends by getting your canine fix with Barkin’ Mad instead?
A five-reel, 10-payline title from Barcrest, the slot features great 3D graphics and again utilises the software company’s “Big Bet” feature to improve its return to player statistic. Paying out a regular jackpot of 500x your stake per line, Barkin’ Mad also allows players to benefit from Barkin’ Mad free spins, a Wild Dog Multiplier and the Showtime Bonus, which is only available with “Big Bet” enabled.
As you’d expect from the name, the theme of Barkin’ Mad is entirely focused on four cheeky doggies and the mischief they get up to. The game features cartoon-esque 3D graphics and suitably comic sound effects, with a horn-based piece of background music adding to the slot’s slapstick qualities. The aforementioned quartet of canines feature as the game’s higher value symbols, while the reels themselves are set in a stereotypical grassy backyard complete with kennel and dog bowl.
There are a number of incentives that will help players on their way to profits in Barkin’ Mad, the most prominent of which being the Barkin’ Mad free spins. These are triggered any time three or more of the game’s logos appear, with players receiving 10-14 free spins. Any wilds landed on your triggering spin or during free spins will also stick in place, further boosting your win percentage.
The other features in Barkin’ Mad are both multipliers, with the Wild Dog Multiplier triggering at random after any non-winning spin to improve the value of your next win and the Showtime Bonus only being available in “Big Bet” mode and randomly taking players to a prize wheel after their spin.
Despite again featuring a “Big Bet” mode, there’s no doubt Barkin’ Mad is one of the simpler Barcrest slots out there. The game merely requires players to select a bet per line amount of £0.01-£40.00 which, when combined with the slot’s 10 fixed paylines, means it is playable from £0.10-£400.00 in total. “Big Bet” mode, meanwhile, allows players to pay extra for five linked spins which offer access to the Showtime Bonus and also mean free spins can be triggered with just two logo icons present.
Barkin’ Mad is a simple slot from Barcrest that will certainly appeal to animal lovers everywhere. The gameplay is fast and fun, while the cartoon graphics and cheerful use of sound mean the slot provides a welcome alternative to some of the more serious slots on the market. That being said, there are still huge prizes to be won in the Barkin’ Mad free spins, especially when “Big Bet” mode is active.
