It seems that some things just are meant to go together in this world: peanut butter and jelly, Hall and Oates, and Dalmatians and firehouses. Internet gambling software developer IGT has latched onto this, and while we have yet to see a slot machine based on the world's greatest sandwich, they have given us the Firehouse Hounds slot machine.
Firehouse Hounds is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that pits you alongside a burning building where you team up with some Dalmatians to fight a fire. Along the way players will find several symbols which include a yellow 7, green 7, purple 7, blue spotted 7, and red striped 7 as well as an axe, hose, fire extinguisher, medical box, fire hydrant, and fire hat. The game mixes these symbols alongside a whole engine full of Dalmatians, who are holding hoses to help put out any fires that they encounter.
The slot's features include wild symbols, scatter symbols, free spins, and stacked wilds that the dogs can hose off on the reels. Playing Firehouse Hounds, I was impressed with the graphics and presentation that IGT has put out. Many of the company's games released on the internet have been dated re-hashes of their land casino games, but Firehouse Hounds brings one of the company's more advanced land games to the digital realm with its complete graphics set. I myself had a lot of fun playing Firehouse Hounds, seeing the occasional free spins turning up and providing some very large wins.
If you are a player who has ever experienced Firehouse Hounds at a standard casino or just enjoy cute games in general, you should definitely try out this slot, as the features and theme are more than enough to put a lasting smile on your face.
