The Dream Slot by High 5 Games
If you enjoy a slot with a fantasy theme, The Dream might just be ideal. On the reels of this online slot game you’ll find a beautiful dark haired lady, both female and male fairies, an ass and a dove. As you might have realized from the symbols, this slot is loosely based upon the Shakespeare play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, where fairies control and manipulate the action of the central characters in a forest setting.
The game is something of a unique one, as you’ll find both the Super Stacks and the Split Symbol formats in action, making for some spins where the wins can come thick and fast.
The Dream Slot Gameplay
This High 5 Games designed slot has two particular features that really set it apart from the rest. Firstly you’ll find the Super Stacks, which promise some large, multiple wins. Before each spin, one of the game’s symbols will be selected at random as the Super Stacked one, this symbol filling all of the mystery slots on the reels. This symbol will therefore dominate the reels for a particular spin, filling a number of the reels entirely on many spins, leading to occasions when the majority of, if not all of the pay lines pay out.
Alongside the Super Stacks, you’ll also find the split symbols. The five central characters, in the beautiful lady, the two fairies, the ass and the dove can all be split, meaning that the image will appear twice within a symbol at times. These double images count twice towards the pay table, meaning wins can go all the way up to 10 in a row if you hit five split symbols in a row.
A look at the pay table tells you that both the beautiful lady and the female fairy pay 200 coins for the maximum ten, while the male fairy, the ass and the dove pay 175, 150 and 125 coins respectively. Joining these symbols are the playing card letters and numbers 10, J, Q, K and A – these not being split symbols and therefore offering a top prize for just 5 in a row. Wins start when you can land at least 3 consecutive symbols in a row from left to right on a pay line. These wins are aided by the wild symbol which substitutes for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter, this also being the highest paying symbol at the entire slot, with 400 coins coming your way for the maximum 5 in a row. When substituting for any of the main character symbols, the wild will represent a split symbol and therefore count double towards the pay table.
The Dream has a total of 40 pay lines, which can be played at stakes ranging from just 1c per line all the way through to $10 per line. You can also choose to play fewer lines, 30, 20, 10 or 1 all being an option. To speed up play you’ll find a handy auto play option which you can use to set the slot running for 5, 10, 15 20 or 25 spins, while any big winning spins can be viewed again using the ‘replay’ button.
This game certainly has an enchanting air, epitomized by the title which sits above the reels on a purple background, while branches of gold weave their way down through the slot. Each of the main character symbols are seated on a different background color, making for a nice contrast to the predominantly purple backing to the symbols. The female fairy is perhaps the standout symbol, looking a little like Katy Perry wearing one of her outlandish outfits. The accompanying sound has an apt dreamlike quality, which only improves when a win is achieved.
The Dream Slot Bonus Feature
The feature is activated by landing the ‘free games’ symbol completely across reels 2, 3 and 4 – this only possible when this scatter is randomly selected as the Super Stacked one. You’ll receive 7 free games during the feature, these free spins appearing to be exactly the same as the spins in the base game. The feature cannot be re-triggered.
The Dream Slot Conclusion
High 5 Games has come up with an enjoyable and engaging game here. The combination of the Split Symbol and the Super Stacks in play all at the same time makes for a game where every single spin has that element of surprise. The slot bonus feature is a little disappointing being so similar to the base game, but there is enough variety in the slot to keep you entertained long after you might have moved on from many other games. Keep playing and you might hit that dream win!
