Risk game in Dolphin’s Pearl slot
All classic Novomatic slots have a doubling game. It is available after every successful move. The user is invited to risk the amount won.
A separate window appears on the screen. In the center is a card turned upside down. The player guesses its color: black or red. If the answer is correct, the winning amount per spin is doubled, otherwise the user loses the prize money for the spin.
Just above are the last correct options. They do not affect the process, but only show which color falls out more often. But you should not believe this indicator, since the outcome of the round depends on the random number generator. Maximum in the risk game, you can increase the payout per spin 5 times.
