Dolphin Reef reminds us of some of the pokies you’d find in one of those off-the-strip and kind of generic casinos that don’t feature any of the big name machines. Now while that doesn’t sound good, it’s certainly not a bad thing. Dolphin Reef is a respectable slot in its own right and one that does have a few redeeming qualities that make it somewhat of a unique play.

Read on in our Dolphin Reef online pokies review to find out just why we are so divided on a pokie that features lovable dolphins and other warm sea creatures.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus games

Like we alluded to above, a dolphin Wild on reels two and four at the same time triggers the game’s only bonus, the re-spin feature. During those five re-spins you have won, the dolphins expand into wild reels that will help you land some potentially big real money payouts.

There is also a scatter symbol in the game (a treasure chest), but rather unusually it doesn’t unlock any sort of bonus feature or mini-game when it appears in multiples. Instead, it multiplies any wins it is a part of by 100x, 10x, or 3x when it shows five, four, or three times on the reels, respectively.

Mobile play

Sometimes the things we dislike about the PC version of a pokie end up being what we like best about the mobile edition. While our Dolphin Reef PC review persons found the laptop/desktop version to be a little thin on features and frankly, a little boring, the different team that did our review of Dolphin Reef for mobile loved that this app-free slot:

  • Offers the same low-end wager ranges, making it perfect for casual players
  • Has simple graphics and sounds that aren’t overwhelming on smartphones
  • Boasts big scatter and wild wins which are perhaps even more fun to win on a small screen
  • Has straightforward gameplay makes it a perfect game for your commute or when you’re in queue somewhere
  • Requires no app downloads in order to begin playing for real money

Why Dolphin Reef Is Worth Playing

As long as you aren’t expecting a pokie with a bunch of fancy and flashy new Flipper-esque tricks, we think any Aussie player that likes basic and cheap slot spinning will enjoy Dolphin Reef from Playtech.
