Microgaming’s Mystic Dreams Video Slot
Mystic Dreams is another impressive Video Slot in the Microgaming collection, and it delivers what has come to be known and expected from the software studio. The graphics are well-rendered, the functionality is smooth and the gameplay is immersive.
As with all Microgaming Slots games, this one can be played for free as well as for real money, which is a good choice when players want to relax without any financial pressures. It’s also the ideal way to practice, get comfortable with the game and build up confidence before staking real money.
When you are ready to place real wagers, you can bet 30 to 150 credits on every spin. Microgaming’s famous 243 Ways to Win plays out over the 5 reels, rather than traditional paylines. In this system the winning combination of reel symbols can be in any combination, as long as they all appear at the same time. This opens up many more winning opportunities for players.
The Top Jackpot in the base game is 2500x the total stake, and the RTP of the Mystic Dreams Video Slot is 96.06%. Seasoned players who are using real money and want to maximise their game time to make the most money can also activate the AutoPlay feature. This keeps the reels turning automatically. It’s convenient when you’re busy and tends to get more spins in even when you’re not.
Mystic Dreams Theme and Design
Native American folklore and culture is at the heart of this game, and this has been carried through wherever possible. A moonlit and mountainous snowy scene dotted with tepees forms the backdrop to the reels, and the higher-value regular symbols include a warrior in a traditional headdress, a buffalo, a wolf and an eagle. These are all rendered quite beautifully, and the plain reels allow the detail of these images to be seen and appreciated. The usual playing cards make up the lower-value icons.
The background music really evokes the Native American spirit, and would not be at all out of place on the Dances with Wolves soundtrack. Every successful spin also triggers special sounds and animations, which should further enhance player enjoyment.
Mystic Dreams Special Features
The Wild Symbol in Mystic Dreams is a tepee with a dreamcatcher taking up the space behind it. This can stand in for any regular symbol, and complete paying combinations. The only icon that the Wild can’t substitute for is the Scatter Symbol, which is represented by the top of a totem pole.
When 3, 4 or 5 totems land on Reel 1 and then subsequent reels, you’ll be given 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. The free turns can also be retriggered during this round, and if you land a totem pole on Reels 2, 3 or 4 completing a winning combination you’ll get a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier. Spinning more than 1 means the multiplier will be the product of the 2 Wild values. If you land a totem pole on Reels 2 and 4, for instance, the multiplier will be 2×4 and equal 8. This can really help to boost your winnings.
