Druids Dream is the latest NetEnt slot to drop, but before we go sifting through its thrilling selection of bonus features, let’s take a look at its theme. I know what you’re thinking because I thought the very same thing; what on earth is a druid? Well, to put it simply, they’re very much like hippies, only a lot older than you’d think.
So, if I was to say to you; ancient hippies, what would you visualise? Eco-friendly, animal-loving people of the earth? Give yourself a clap if you did because that’s’ exactly what you can expect! Despite artistic license taken a hold of the Swedish software developer, the setup is extremely attractive.
Hang about, what do you mean artistic license? These days, these ancient figures are sometimes mistaken for wizards and spiritualistic beings, but in all honesty, druids were not the ‘enchanting’ symbols that NetEnt has made them out to be.
Here’s a quick history lesson for you. And yes, I know it’s been a few years since we were in school but humour me. Druids were ancient Celts (from as early as the 3rd century) who served a wide variety of roles – from teachers to philosophers, to judges and wise elders, of whom would become the mediators between humans and the gods.
At the end of the day, Druids Dream is just another slot with a vibrant theme that will find itself in some category or another at online casinos. But wait! There are some exciting things to tell you about!
Less Enchantress More Enchanted
Fair play, the design and theme are pretty impressive, although it’s something more akin to fairy tales than ancient figures. You’ll find the 5×4 reel engine within a beautiful dense forest with millions of fireflies providing a much-needed burst of light, but all eyes should be on the symbols, not the setting.
Wild symbols offer more than just a substituted win, they offer…
…re-spins and a shot and landing a huge win. Whenever a wild symbol appears during the base game with a scatter attached, a lock appears, and a re-spin is triggered (this is known as a charged wild). The more wilds in view, the more re-spins you’ll receive. Your re-spins will feature wild stacks more often than not.
Scatters come in the form of a grizzly bear and the two druids. Land one on reel 2 and 4 during the same spin and 6 bonus spins are triggered. Charged wilds continues throughout the feature and the scatters that triggered the bonus will become additional wilds for a shot at bigger wins.
Believe it or not, it’s super easy to understand. Top prize is £2K and this is awarded with a five-of-a-kind of wild symbols and as always, the game is completely random. It may not seem like much, but wild symbols appear stacked and there are 40 win lines to benefit from – you know what that means? The chance at winning up to £2K on more than one win line!
