Desperate Dawgs Slot (Yggdrasil)

Desperate Dawgs Slot (Yggdrasil)Three bank robbers are the main characters in the slot, Desperate Dawgs. Its a new slot machine that was developed by Yggdrasil, and one that offers a Wild West theme.

Here is my unbiased review of the slot:

Game Set-Up

Desperate Dawgs uses the common 5 reels, and up to 20 pay lines.

The slot offers several features that include some scatters, big multipliers, free spins, and bonus games.

Betting and Prizes

$0.20 is the lest that you will be allowed to use per spin, while the highest is $100. This makes it possible to use as much as $5 per line.

It is a game that has huge promises, especially when you consider its 30x multipliers that show up during the free spins.

However, even with that, Desperate Dawgs offers just 3,902x the stake ($390,200). The RTP of 95.03% does not help things much.

Desperate Dawgs Slot Features

The Wild Barrels are helpful when you want to form winning combinations. Together with the regular and wild symbols, you can form a combo of 3+ to get paid.

However, you cannot use the wild to substitute the scatter.

The game uses three different scatters, and I noticed that Yggdrasil has given each one a different image that resembles each of the gang members.

There is a bonus that is referred to as the Wagon Trail, and you will need the help of the yellow scatter (3-5 are needed) to trigger it.

The green scatter represents the Crime Spree Dog. It will also trigger when 3-5 such symbols are present. The reward is 10 free spins, plus an increasing multiplier (can get to 30xs).

Last but not least is the Bank Buster, and this one only appears on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reel.

To pick the numbers, you will use the keyboard, and whatever cash is inside is what you will be awarded.

Theme & Design

Desperate Dawgs uses a Wild West theme, and the story is about some bank robbers who are on the loose. They are just getting ready to execute their mission.

Its a common theme but quite interesting, especially with the three gang members being dogs.

A barrel is an icon that represents the wild, while the dogs represent the scatters.

Other symbols are the game logo, Six Shooter, the Sheriff’s badge, and some low-value card suits.


Yggdrasil has given Desperate Dawgs a very good design, which makes it an interesting Wild West-themed title.

It is a feature-rich slot that has good potential, but it’s below-average RTP does not help much, and especially when you consider the game’s high volatility.

This slot is only suitable for casual players.
