Gameplay and visuals
Shaman’s Dream Jackpot comes with a standard 5-reel 3 row set up that offers 25 paylines and comes with a Return to Player percentage of 95.4, which is well within the industry average for a game of this type. The minimum bet if all paylines are selected is 25c, with the maximum topping out at $12.50.
The reels themselves are set to a background of a scene that was obviously inspired by any number of old-fashioned western movies with the sun setting behind distant hills and mountains. The game includes an auto-spin feature that the player can set to a range of different spins from 10 to 100. However, there is not a feature to stop auto-spin when you reach a certain number of wins or losses.
The symbols in this game are represented by various native American symbols such as a totem pole, a tepee, an Indian squaw, a dreamcatcher and an eagle to name just a few. During the base game, the most valuable of all symbols is the wolf symbol that will pay you 9,500x your unit bet if you land all five of them on a payline, plus it acts as a wild symbol that will substitute all other symbols apart from the scatter.
As this is a jackpot titled game, Shaman’s Dream Jackpot includes three progressive jackpots that can be won, and they are called mini, maxi and mega. The mini progressive jackpot comes with a $50 limit, with the maxi limit set at $500 and the mega at $15,000.
The designers at Eyecon have also introduced a gamble feature to tempt players into risking their winnings for the chance to double the payout. Enter this round and you will be taken to a screen where you will be presented with a face-up playing card. Depending on the value of that card, you then have to decide if the next card is going to show either a higher or lower value. Choose incorrectly and you will lose your winning, but guess correctly and your winnings will be doubled, and you can keep going until you either reach $32,000 or you get five wins in a row.
There is one bonus game to play in Shaman’s Dream Jackpot, and that is Dream Catcher Free Spins. You will receive 15 free spins when landing 3 or more dream catcher symbols as well as being rewarded with having your winnings tripled, plus it can be retriggered up to 15 times.
