Howl your way to riches with the Firehouse Hounds online slot
Dogs… fighting fire? Sounds crazy right? It sure is! These are the bravest dogs on the web, helping us get through the roughest of times. Firehouse Hounds is a fiery slot with plenty to offer. If you’re lucky you’ll be howling your way to the bank.
The popular land-based slot machine has finally made its way online and is now available to play on mobile, tablet and PC. With 30 paylines and five reels, Firehouse Hounds falls well within the generic formula for a video slot – that’s not to say this is like any other game though!
With a minimum bet of 10p, along with a maximum bet of £200, this game appeals to both highrollers and amateur slot players. Even more so, being a highly volatile slot, this game pays often and keeps you on the edge of your seat. If that’s enough to get you excited then access the game from your mobile, or read on for more information.
There’s danger ahead, but it sure pays well
Firehouse Hounds’ clear-cut design is what makes it so special; the reels are dead centre, with not much going on in the background apart from the purple sky-line. The brick walls surrounding the reels adds to the firefighting theme, ultimately creating a game that holds true to the nature of the slot. At the bottom of the screen you’ll find the spin button, along with two fire-dogs comically holding a hose.
As you would expect, the symbols in this game are related to firefighting. You have the fireman’s (or firedog’s) helmet, water hydrants, hosepipes and fire axes. These pay various prizes, from 150 coins for landing five helmets, to 75 for five fire axes. Furthermore, there are a variety of “7” symbols which pay larger prizes, from 500 coins when landing five of the spotted “7” symbol, to 200 for landing the golden seven.
Finally you have the wild symbol which can be identified by its purple background and the word ‘wild’ in golden letters. This replaces all symbols, apart from the bonus symbol, which is a fire alarm! Land three of these anywhere on the screen and you’ll activate the ‘wild fire free spins bonus round.’
This bonus sets both reels one and five ablaze, with fixed wilds on every free spin. Select a fire pole and if you’re lucky you will be awarded six free spins. Have no fear though, the least you’ll come out with is four. The true icing on the cake is the 30 times multiplier on all wins per line throughout this bonus, which can stack up some serious prizes.
- 30 pay lines fixed at a cost of 40 coins to cover the Wild Fire feature
- 3×5 reel interface
- Line wins pay left to right and right to left. The Wild Fire feature can turn reel 1, reel 5, or both 1 and 5 wild on any base game spin

- The player selects a fire pole to determine whether they’ve won 4, 5, or 6 free spins

Where to play Firehouse Hounds?
Are you wondering where classics like Firehouse Hounds, Egyptian Dreams, Hexbreaker 2, and Kitty Glitter have gone? I’ve been diving deep into the world of online casinos for UK players, and it appears that these IGT slots are no longer on their menu.
Surprisingly, there are now fewer playable IGT games compared to what Ladylucks covers.
