NuWorks’ Watchdog is a progressive jackpot slot machine game, and one which runs on the Jackpot Pyramid Bet progressive system. The game is loosely themed on a heist, although one involving canines. Its quirkiness is matched only by its zany symbols, many of which will be familiar to your average dog lover. Watchdog is played over a 5-reel, 25-line gaming format, with players able to alter the number of paylines as they see fit, as well as opt to wager anything from 0.01 up to 0.25 per line. Players will find that wagers do not exceed 6.25 per spin on this slot, whilst players can actually get away with bets costing just 0.01 per line per spin. Watchdog has 5 progressive jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major, Maxi and Grand), and these are won in an interesting way.
Wild symbols appear as the watchdog scatters. These scatter wilds can substitute for all other symbols (barring bulldogs) and can also trigger a feature. Players are going to need to land 3 of the scattered watchdog symbols to land a free games feature in this slot. The symbols required to trigger this bonus appear as dogs trying to sell dodgy stolen watches on the sly.
Bulldogs are a second type of scatter in this slot. They can dish out scattered wins worth 2x, 3x, 20x or 200x your total bet when 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear anywhere on the reels, but that is all.
The progressives are won via the Jackpot Pyramid Game, which must be wagered on separately (above the reels). Your bet will tell you how likely you are to trigger the bonus, too. In it, players must work their way up the 5-tier pyramid by selecting from Gold vaults. Gold, red or green idols will either see you finish the level, terminate the bonus, or allow you to take another pick on that same level.
Once you have successfully triggered the free spins bonus, you can pick one of the three watchdog symbols to land up to 12 free games in total. Players can then select another one of the watchdog scatters to win a multiplier which could be worth up to 12x the normal rate of pay. Players can click on any watchdog when retriggering the feature to land up to 12 additional free games.
