Indian Spirit Slots

Native American Indians are a popular theme for casino slot games. This 5-reel video slot from Novomatic takes this topic and uses it for a very solid game – complete with wilds, scatters and a bonus round where wild symbols appear stacked on the reels.

To set your expectation at the right level, this is not the most modern or graphically impressive slot in its niche.

What you will find is an entertaining casino slot with an emphasis on the famous Novomatic game-play.

How to Win on Indian Spirit

There are 20 win lines across the 5 reels of this slot, and with symbols stacked (appearing multiple times in a row on the reels) it is possible to trigger several lines in the same spin. From the list of regular symbols, you’ll want to see the chief as often as possible. This guy stares out from the reels at you, and also has the biggest single prize – worth 1000 coins for 5 of a kind, 200 for 4 and paying for just 2 from the left. Next comes a tomahawk and ball on a stick with a top prize of 500 coins. The original symbols are completed by an Indian in a kayak, and a camp fire – each worth 400 for all 5. Indian Spirit does use playing card symbols, though these are at least designed to tie in with the overall theme.

In addition to the regular winning symbols, there are two more to look out for. The first is a ‘dreamcatcher’, which is a web of ropes with feathers hanging from it. This is a wild symbol, and will substitute for all of the other symbols except for the 2nd special one – the eagle. This appears with a sound effect, and is a scatter symbol. If you get 3 of them anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the bonus feature.


Indian Spirit Dream Wins Free Spins Game

3 eagles will get you 10 free spins to start with (you’ll be shown a stretched out skin with this written on it, and asked to press start to begin). If you hit 3 more eagles during your bonus, then 10 more spins are added.

There are some design differences. First the background graphic turns from day to night. Second there is some chanting and a ‘tune’ which is not used in the base game. The main change is that there are a lot more dreamcatchers on the reels. These are the wild symbols, and will now appear stacked on many of your spins – often triggering several wins or covering more than one entire reel. The pay table remains the same, only the ‘dream wins’ system means you’ll be totaling up wins a lot more often than during the main game.

As with all Novomatic slots you’ll hear the ‘tick-tock’ sound after any win and have the opportunity to double up on the flip of a playing card.

Design and Setup for Indian Spirit

This is not a new game and the graphics work is starting to show some age. Having said that the symbols and background showing rocks and a glowing sunset are perfectly nice. Animations are focused on the chief, who starts off looking solemnly at you wearing a feathered head-dress.  When you hit a win with this guy, there is a zoom-in effect which goes all the way into his eye. This resolves as the face of a grey wolf. Some of the other symbols are fairly details – though again a little retro in the way they are produced.

Sound effects are a contrasting mix of the standard Novomatic noises and some extra effects which kick in during the dream wins free spins game.

Indian Spirit starts off with a default maximum of 20 win lines. While you can adjust this number downwards, I would recommend sticking with the full 20. This will get you the maximum benefit from the stacked wilds during the bonus feature – where it is possible to get the biggest win on all 20 of the lines at once. There are a huge range of bets available, with between 1 and 500 coins (cents) allowed per line.


Overall Experience

This game is a great example of slot maker Novomatic playing to its strengths. The base game is solid. Though the overall look is a little dated, the odd animation does make a nice difference. The highlight is the free spins bonus game, with the stacked wilds giving you a shot at some multi-line wins.
