Dogs and Tails Slot Review 2024
Pampered pooches and feisty felines don’t always see eye-to-eye, but Gamzix has made sure they’re on their best behaviour in Dogs and Tails!
Its always been said that Cats and Dogs naturally dislike each other, and most of the time that’s true, but will both of these domesticated species be able to put their differences aside?
Lots of people have a soft spot for Cats and Dogs, and it seems that slots developers do too! Cat Clans and The Dog House from developers Snowborn Games and Pragmatic Play stand out as 2 of the best cat and dog-themed slots by far, but will Dogs and Tails push them off their podiums?
Let’s play on and find out!
