Counting sheep is usually a method used to help you fall asleep but in Dreams of Fortune a slumbering shepherd can try and help you to win a jackpot instead. Powered by 2By2 Gaming, this 5 reel, 30 payline slot comes with wild symbol drops and a pair of free spins features. Head to the country from 30p per spin.
The visuals in Dreams of Fortune have a rustic feel – set against hillside backdrop, the reels feature playing cards from A to 10, a shepherd’s crook, a bed, a pouch of money, a house, a sheep and a dozy shepherd (who looks like the leering lovechild of Ben Elton and Benny Hill). There’s also a wild which replaces all other symbols bar the scatter.
Dreams of Fortune comes with 3 bonus features. The Wild Fall feature is triggered at random and can hit on any spin. Wilds symbols can float and land on a selection of symbols and turn them wild. A new payout is then made with the wilds in position.
There are also 2 free spin rounds which are triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatter symbol. You’ll then be awarded 1 of the following:
Toss N Turn Bonus feature – here you’ll be given 7, 11 or 15 free spins which are played out on an expanded 5 reel, 4 row, 40 payline game engine. On each free spin, the sleeping shepherd rolls over and wherever he lies turns into a wild reel. Look out for the sheep randomly appear above the clock as they award an extra 5 free spins.
Wild Dream Bonus feature – 10, 15 or 25 free spins are awarded here, this time on a 243 ways to win reel set. Once again you can trigger more free spins with 5 more added. The rewards are potentially bigger using this new game engine. As with the Toss N Turn Bonus feature, the Dreaming Shepherd symbol appears on every free spin turning 1 reel wild.
The cartoon visuals in Dreams of Fortune have a light-hearted feel but the features that come with it are serious enough. The floating wilds can provide some nice little base game extras. Like many slots, it’s the bonus features where Dreams of Fortune comes into its element. The stacked wilds on each spin can really make a difference here.
A slot based on snoozing may seem a little boring at first glance. The features on offer make sure that that’s not the case with Dreams of Fortune. It is a pretty tranquil, low variance offering though. If you’re looking for some gentle, sedate slots action, join the snoozing shepherd. He may not make your Dreams of Fortune come true but you should have a pretty relaxing time in the process.
