Money Ways

During the base game, special Cash Bones can appear on any Wild or High-paying Dog symbol at random. Cash Bones that are present on any symbols that form a winning combination will have their total Cash value awarded.

Cash Bone prizes vary depending on which reel they appear on, as follows.

  • Reel 1 – Cash Bone prizes up to 2.2x your bet.
  • Reel 2 – Cash Bone prizes between 0.6x and 3x your bet.
  • Reel 3 – Cash Bone prizes between 1.5x and 5x your bet.
  • Reel 4 – Cash Bone prizes between 2.5x and 10x your bet.
  • Reel 5 – Cash Bone prizes between 6x and 45x your bet.

Landing a Collect symbol in the form of a Dog Bowl across the reels collects all present Cash Bone values and awards the total amount.

In addition to this, there are 4 Big Prize Bones up for grabs that can appear instead of Cash Bones on any High-paying Dog symbols. Like the Cash Bones, the Big Prize Bones will only be awarded if the symbol they are on is part of a winning combination (excluding Wilds).

  • Big – Awards 50x your bet.
  • Super – Awards 200x your bet.
  • Mega – Awards 1,000x your bet.
  • Ultra – Awards 5,000x your bet.

Big Prize Bones are also present during the Respin Bonus or as prizes in the Pick-a-Win feature.

Pick-a-Win Feature

Landing 3 or more Pick Scatters across the reels triggers the Pick-a-Win feature.

Once active, 9 Dog Toys will appear across the screen, where you will be given between 3 and 5 Picks. Continue to choose dog toys to reveal random Cash Prizes between 5x and 5,000x your bet.

Once all your Picks are complete, your total Prize winnings will be awarded and you will return to the base game.

Frisbee Feature

During any random spin in the base game, a Frisbee animation can fly over the reel set and rearrange random High or Low-paying symbols to either create or improve a win.

In addition to this, on any losing spin, a Frisbee can also fly over the reel set and rearrange random High or Low-paying symbols to create a win. This also guarantees that at least 1 Cash Bone symbol is awarded.

5 Doggy Dollars Pick-a-Win Feature

5 Doggy Dollars Respin Bonus

Landing 3 Respin Scatters across the reels triggers the Respin Bonus, awarding 3 Respins.

During Respins, all reel positions will spin and any High-paying symbols with Cash Bones on them will be locked in place for the duration of the round, resetting the number of Respins back to 3.

Respin Bonus Frisbee Feature

If a reel becomes completely filled with locked symbols, a Frisbee animation will be thrown up the reel, collecting all Cash Bones on that particular reel.

The total Cash Prize will be multiplied by x2 and held in the Frisbee above the reel set. All other positions will then be unlocked for new symbols to land in.

Collect Scatter

A special Collect Scatter can land in any reel position during the Respin Bonus. If a Collect Scatter lands in view, it will take any Cash Bones in view and display the total as a new Cash Bone.

The Collect Scatter will remain locked onto the reel and does not reset the Respins Meter back to 3.

5 Doggy Dollars: Our Verdict

5 Doggy Dollars will have widespread appeal with plenty of features and a respectable 7,000x win cap, but to us, it doesn’t quite stand out as one of 4ThePlayer’s best creations.

However that’s more of a testament to some of their other games rather than a dig at 5 Doggy Dollars, and in its defence, it is capable of dishing out its fair share of excitement with staple features with the classic 4ThePlayer touch.

Bone prizes are high enough to have you salivating like a dog, and its undeniable charm certainly puts you in a better mood than the swathe of ‘edgy’ slots that seem to be gaining prominence at the moment.

Overall, 5 Doggy Dollars may not look or feel like an A-lister of the 4ThePlayer catalogue at first, but give it a chance and you’ll be smitten with it.
