IGT Deploys Popular Slot Machine Game “Firehouse Hounds” to Online Casinos

Written By Janice Doughtrey

“Firehouse Hounds” a cartoon-based slot machine content that took land-based casinos by storm has arrived at online casinos. Last week, the Nevada-based International Game Technology (IGT) deployed the popular 5-reel, 30-payline, Dalmatian-themed slot machine game, “Firehouse Hounds” at Internet-based gaming facilities.

One such facility is Mr. Green Casino, which launched the popular IGT slot with a £15,000 (CA$10,240) “Cash Prize Scorcher” promotional giveaway.

Available for both desktop and mobile gaming, the online version of the hit slot remains true to the features that endeared it to land-based slot players. Depicting Dalmatian hounds as valiant London firefighters, the amusing cartoon animation of Dalmatians during reel spinning actions, makes the game truly entertaining.

About the “Firehouse Hounds” Video Slot Game

This IGT game is a combination of classic and contemporary themes. The high-paying icons are lucky number Sevens (7s) that come in different designs and colors. The game awards a win value for every three-, four- or five-of-a-kind lucky 7 symbols appearing in a payline. The lesser paying symbols are represented by firehouse-related objects.

The popular IGT slot game randomly activates a Wild Fire feature that sets ablaze reels 1 or 5, or both reels 1 and 5 in the base game. The lovable hounds launch into animated action of dousing vigorously the flaming reels, in order to reveal the outcome — an entire reel turned into a full Stack of Wilds!

The slot machine game also has a Wild Fire Free Spins Bonus Round triggered by the simultaneous appearance of Fire Alarm Bonus Symbols in Reels 2, 3 and 4. The occurrence activates from four (4) up to six (6) bet-free spins. The number of spins received depends on the number revealed by any one of three Firehouse Pole totems, selected at the beginning of the bonus round.

The Stacked Wilds in Reels 1 and 5 that appear only if triggered by the random Wild Fire feature in the base game, become Locked Wilds in Reels 1 and 5.

If the Fire Alarm Bonus icons re-appear simultaneously in reels two, three, and four after a bet-free spin, the occurrence sets off another set of free-spins. Yet if during the bonus game, a free spin results to three or more Fire Alarm Bonus symbols appearing in any row or column across the 5-reel grid, such an occurrence not only triggers another set of four (4) to six (6) free spins, but also awards payout at 30x the value of coins placed as bet per spin.

About the “Cash Prize Scorcher” Promo at Mr. Green Casino

Mr. Green Casino marked the arrival of the “Firehouse Hounds” online slots last July 30, 2015, with the launch of a promotional Cash Prize Draw. Firehouse Hounds slot players who wager at least £10 (CA$10) in cumulative bets when playing the new IGT title from July 30 to August 09, 2015, earn one (1) prize draw ticket as qualifying entry.

The draw will be held on August 11, 2015 and will award 500 prizes in different amounts to any player drawn as winner of the Cash Prize Scorcher promotional draw. Accordingly, there is no limit to the number of cash prizes that can be won by a single player. This denotes that the greater the number of promo tickets earned by a player, the greater the chances of winning a larger share of the £15,000 (CA$10,240) total cash prize.
