The first online version of Dolphin’s Pearl was so popular that the developer of the game, Novomatic, decided to bring out a deluxe edition of the game. The deluxe version has added a pay line, and Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe now has ten pay lines. The background of the game shows the intense blue of the deep ocean, and the bottom of the reels is the bottom of the sea, complete with corals and other marine flora and fauna. The reels are lined with bubbles, and there is seaweed on both sides of the reels.
An Improvement on the Original
The graphics and 3D animations have been improved in Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe from the original game. The most valuable symbol is the Dolphin, and if you manage to land five of them on an active pay line your reward could be as much as nine hundred times your initial stake. Four Dolphins will win you 250 times your first wager. The next most valuable symbol is the Pearl, and five of them will give you an award of five hundred times your original wager. If you find five of the Scatters during the free spins round they will pay you a huge 1,500 times your first wager.
The symbols in Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe include all sorts of fishy icons. You will see a Lobster and a Stingray, a Rainbow fish and Seahorses, as well as the Oyster with the Pearl and the Dolphin. There are five symbols that will give you payouts when just two of them appear on the reels. The five are the Dolphin, the Stingray and the Lobster, the Oyster with a Pearl and the playing card with a number 9. With all the other symbols you will need three matching symbols to form a winning combination. The lower paying symbols are represented by the standard playing cards, from Nine through to the Ace.
Wilds and Scatters
In Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe, the Dolphin is the Wild symbol, and can replace any other symbol to form a winning combination, apart from the Scatter symbol. The Oyster with a Pearl is the Scatter symbol, and this symbol can appear anywhere on the reels to form winning combinations, although they must include at least two matching Scatter symbol to bed eligible for a win.
Free Spins Round
Three or more Scatter symbol appearing on the reels will unlock the Free spins bonus round. You will be given fifteen free spins, and all winnings you may make during the free spins round, will be multiplied by three. Several Scatter symbols are added to the reels of NZ online pokies during this bonus round, so if you find an additional three Scatters on the reels you will be given extra free spins. The possibility of finding five Scatters together in Dolphin’s Pearl Deluxe will also increase. If you complete a winning combination by using the Dolphin Wild, your winnings will be doubled. There will be an increased number of Scatters around, so it will be easy to retrigger the free spins bonus feature.
