Druid’s Dream is a Celtic themed slot, set to hit our casino on 06.04.2020 by NetEntertainment.
The term ‘Druid’ is used to describe a member of the high-ranking class in ancient Celtic cultures. Also renowned as religious leaders, they were also legal authorities, adjudicators, lore keepers, medical professionals, and political advisors.
Due to the name of the slot and the high expectations we are used to being seen delivered by NetEnt, it was a surprise to see that this new release is more of a budget production, which does not come with too many enticing factors.
The 5 reel and 4-row slot game come with 40 fixed pay lines and an RTP of 96.00%. Playable from a minimum of € / $0.20, the highest bet that can be placed is € / $400.
Visually the slot game is very appealing. Set in what looks like an enchanted forest, the background track is very soothing and the pastel colors add that magical feel.
The highest paying symbols are represented by a white wolf, an owl, a tribal looking hand drum, and what looks like a shark tooth. The lowest paying symbols are represented by colored rocks with tribal markings.
As the slot does not have any extravagant features, Druid’s Dream comes with low volatility and offers players a max win of 200x their stake.
Please note that the RTP and bet amount may vary slightly depending on the casino you play at, or whether you are playing a demo or real money.
Druid’s Dreams Features
Despite the slot looking visually appealing and the slot name insinuating that the features are going to be rich with fun and payouts, unfortunately, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Wild and Stacked Wild symbols
A Wild symbol has the ability to substitute for any other symbol except a Scatter to make up a winning pay line.
A Wild symbol can land on any of the following reels 1, 3, and 5 during the base game. For a Wild to land during the free spins round, it is required to land on reels 1 or 5 and if you activate the re-spin then a Wild can land on reel 3 only.
The Wild symbol has the ability to turn in to a stacked wild, enhancing your chances of landing bigger wins. For a Wild to turn into a Stacked Wild you are required to land it on reels 2 and 4 during the base game and the re-spin.
For the Wild to turn into a Stacked Wild During the free spins round you need to land the symbol on reel 3.
Stacks of Wild symbols can cover from one single position to the whole reel, depending on how the reel lands.
Scatter symbols substitute for any other symbol and can land at any point during the base game or a re-spin only if a Stacked Wild symbol lands on reel 2 or 4.
The Scatter will appear either at the bottom of the Stacked Wild on reel 2 or on the top of the Stacked Wild on reel 4.
A Scatter symbol also has the ability to land during the free spins round when a Stacked Wild symbol appears on reel 3.
During the re-spin feature, if you land a Stack of WIlds on either reel 2 or 4 without a Scatter symbol present, Nuge feature will become activated for the next round.
The Nudge feature, nudges the symbols every so slightly, providing you with an alternative chance to land a second scatter symbol on the reels.
The Nudge feature will come to an end when the second Scatter symbol lands on the reels or when the Re-Spins end.
To activate 6 free spins you are required to land a minimum of 2 Scatter symbols on reels 2 and 4.
If a Charged Wild symbol lands on reels 2 or 4 at the same time, an additional free spin will be awarded. You can also collect 3 additional spins by landing a stacked Wild with a scatter symbol on reel 3.
Once the free spins begin, any scatter or Wild symbols that activated the round transform into Wild symbols and stick to the reels until the feature ends.
Druid’s Dream Conclusion
Although the game is visually attractive and the quality of the slot is of a high standard, I felt the game lacked a little something.
The game appears to have several features, however, you do not get that real buzz from landing or activating them, like you would with other slot games like Bonanza.
Overall, I would give NetEnt a 3 out of 5 for this slot game. It’s nice to see a slight change from their usual video slot however, it needed a little something to add to the excitement. Wildz Casino is one of many where you can enjoy playing Druid's Dream.
