Despite the wealth of Druid themed material out there, we actually know very little about the real Druids. What did they believe? How did they worship? How did they live? Were they even real? On the one hand that’s a frustrating lack of information, but on the other hand it lets us be nice and creative with the facts! In Druid’s Dream you can tap into the ancient natural magic of the runes, the animals and the trees to make yourself rich! But will you become one with the universe or are you just on a bad trip? Let’s take a look in our Druid’s Dream slot game review.
The Druid’s Dream slot game is set deep in a mystical forest, and for a background you’ll find yourself in front of a huge tree that sways and sparkles as you play, while the ground is studded with carved stones humming with natural magic. The symbols themselves are all associated with Druidic religion, and include coloured rune stones for the low value symbols and instruments and animals for the high value symbols. The slot as a whole has a sleepy, relaxed vibe to it with soothing music playing in the background, and there isn’t the usual flash and bang of excitement when you generate wins. The game does liven up when you hit those bonuses though, with glowing stones and magical runes shining as you play.
Right away you’ll notice that Druid’s Dream has an extra row to play with, at five reels and four rows, which means 40 pay lines on which you can bet a whopping £/$/€400 per spin! This makes up somewhat for the low prize value in the main game, which tops out at just 5x your stake for the highest paying white wolf symbol, but you need to bet high to get the big rewards in this slot. The RTP is exactly average at 96%, but don’t worry too much, because this game relies on a bit of a convoluted bonus round to access the real cash.
The wild is the ticket to success in this game, represented by a paw symbol, and can land on its own or stacked in the main game. These wilds grant re-spins if you land one of the male or female druid symbols on the same reel as one of these stacks, equal to the number of wilds in the stack. Your aim in these re-spins is to try and land a second stack with the other druid included, because then you’ll get six free spins with all your existing wilds sticky, while new wilds will add two free spins to your total. This is made easier by the nudge mechanic, which nudges the second druid onto the stacked reel if it lands slightly off screen.
Druid’s Dream is a good looking pokie with a cool theme, and while the main game lets it down a bit with those low value prizes, the bonuses more than make up for this deficit. It’s a bit complicated, but you’ll soon get the hang of landing those stacks and druids, giving you loads of free spins to enjoy!
