Dogs are carefree creatures that seem to have no worries about the fact that they have no education, no job, and no idea where their next meal will come from. They live joyfully in the moment, and somehow they’re usually taken care of. You get a sense of this joyfulness when you play Dog Days from Nailed It! Games, and it comes with a colorful, cartoonish visual presentation that should charm any canine and animal lover.

The base game is livened up by the Paw Collection system, which triggers a Tasty Treat prize collection mode on a fairly regular basis. This mode goes on until 10 treats have been collected, or until you run out of “lives”. It can lead to solid prizes up to 2,500x your stake, and you can also land prizes in the Bonus Pick Game. The free spins round comes with an x3 win multiplier, and there are 2 ante bet settings to choose from in this game.

Dog Days Slot Features

You can play this game with the default Bronze level, or activate the Silver or Golden Bet which costs 50 or 100 % more per spin, respectively. Both ante bet options give you more wilds, bonus symbols, and free spins symbols, as well as 4 or 5 chances in the Tasty Treats feature (while bronze mode offers 3). In addition, the 3 modes give you a hit rate of 34.32, 39.92, or 42.93 %, respectively, which means more frequent wins the more you pay per spin.

The premium symbols pay between 8 and 20 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and Wild symbols can appear anywhere to step in for pay symbols to help complete and/or improve wins. In addition, the wild symbols pay up to 20x your stake, should you land 5 wilds on the same payline.

You will see a Paw Collection Meter above each reel, and you get a booster added to each meter as the game starts. Paw symbols are collected in the meters, and the Tasty Treat Collection feature triggers when any given meter is filled with 5 paw symbols. The Paw Meters are saved between bet sizes and ante bet modes.

The Tasty Treat Collection feature is all about collecting tasty treat symbols on the active reel or reels, and this adds 1 point to the Collection Meter. A chance “life” is removed on any spin without any tasty treat symbols, but the tally resets when you land a tasty treat symbol. A total win prize between 1x and 2,500x is awarded when you’ve either landed 10 tasty treat symbols, or when your chance tally goes to zero.

The Bonus Round triggers when you land 3, 4, or 5 scatters in view, and this gives you 10, 14, or 20 free spins, respectively. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters on the same free spin awards 3, 5, 7, or 10 extra spins, respectively. Both line wins and Bonus Game prize wins are boosted by x3 in the bonus round, and the tasty treat collection meter is also active for the duration of the feature. Each reel gives you a prize at the end, depending on the treats collected.

The Bonus Game triggers when you land 3 to 5 bonus symbols on a base game spin, or 2 to 5 in the free spins round. It’s a pick and click game that gives you prizes of 2x, 3x, 4x, 10x, or 40x in the base game. The prizes increase to 5x, 9x, 12x, 30x, or 120x your stake if the bonus game is triggered in the bonus round. Tasty Treat symbols can also be collected, as well as Paw Symbols.

The 200 Spins Dog Days Slot Experience

You get a brief taste of the base game, before we trigger the bonus round with 10 free spins at 0:32 into the 3-minute highlights video. We then trigger the Bonus Game close to the 1-minute mark, from within the free spins round, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

We commend Nailed It! Games for not falling for the temptation to make yet another 9 Masks of Fire copycat, which we admittedly feared when we first laid eyes on the prizes stacked up on the left-hand side. The canine charm is running strong in Dog Days, and it comes with pleasing cartoonish visuals and fun animations sprinkled in throughout the game. It can be a tad confusing when you read about the features, perhaps, but at least they’ve come up with something out of the ordinary.

Worry not, however, as things will get more clear once you get into the swing of things. You can always test the free demo game (at the top of this page) if you want to get a deeper understanding of how it all works. The Tasty Treat collection system means that you always have something to look forward to, and it can lead to decent payouts as well. Even more so in the bonus round, which may or may not include the pick game, and the 2,500x potential is decent for a mid-range game like this. Overall, Dog Days is a pretty entertaining affair, and it will lift your mood if nothing else.
