LCD is a sucker for the aquatic theme in general and Dolphin King, a nice-looking 5-reel, 25-payline online slot which can be played at 1 cent to $10 per line, is just as pleasingly blue and organic as the best of ‘em. The fish and seashell symbols are pleasant enough while the eponymous WILD marine mammal (oddly the only anthropomorphized character) chitters realistically on a win, a brilliant sound effect that – despite what you’d suspect – doesn’t get old quickly. Here’s to thinking the player’d be joining in excited squeaks, too, should the King trigger those bonus multipliers of up to 5,000x and max jackpot of $200,000. The SCATTER is a black pearl; slightly ominous for those who have read Steinbeck's book on that particular subject. Dolphin King slot machine game was released by Vegas Technology in tandem with the Nippon-themed Cherry Blossom and both sport a bouncing reel video effect, a mellow rhythm of play, and the ubiquitous A-K-Q-J-10-9 (Do they really play poker in Atlantis?) run. Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole heck of a lot here (or in Cherry Blossom) for that matter to make this game stand out in the virtual casino. LCD rating: Average.
