The Dog House - Dog or Alive Slot Overview

You might remember one of Pragmatic Play’s previous slots, The Dog House, which as the name suggests was about man’s best friend. Like the original, The Dog House - Dog or Alive has five reels and 20 paylines, but it’s not about family pets in your garden.

No, it’s set in the kind of dusty street that we normally associate with the Wild West video slot, though with a canine twist.

Graphics and Theme

Wild West slots tend to have similar sort of settings, and it’s one you might recognise from countless movies. There’s a long, dusty street that’s just asking for a drifting ball of tumbleweed. There are wooden buildings, including the Western staples like the saloon and the bank. There’s a blue sky.

These are the kind of ideas invoked by The Dog House - Dog or Alive slot. The title is the first clue, a riff on those famous “Wanted: Dead or Alive” posters.

There are a few little differences, though. For one thing, rather than high noon, it’s night time, with some lit torches. For another, there’s a distinct lack of any human presence.

The sheriff stars and cracked safe full of gold remind you that this is a world of outlaws and lawmen, with a likely bank robbery on the way, whilst a bone among the symbols keeps the canine element prominent.

How to Play

Pragmatic Play slots are pretty reliable in their base game layouts:

  1. There’s a sound button on the main screen, but for most settings, find the little gear symbol. That’s where you can split sound and music or activate battery saver mode.
  2. You will find a basic bet adjustor in the settings menu, but if you go to the plus and minus symbols adjoining the main spin button, that will reveal a wider range of options.
  3. Don’t forget responsible gaming, especially in real money slots. However you adjust your bet, make sure it fits with your budget. 
  4. Results are completely random. It can be exciting, but don’t get so carried away that you forget your loss and single win limits.
  5. Play while it’s fun, then stop when the fun stops.
