Dreams can be funny old things but we’ve never had one that included donkeys, doves and fairies all at the same time. They all feature in The Dream, a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot from High5 Games. This trippy offering comes with spilt symbols and SuperStacks as well as a free spins feature. Play from between 40p and £400 per spin.
The chief attractions in The Dream are the Super Stack symbols and the free spins round. The SuperStacks can transform an entire reel or even multiple reels into the same symbol, offering some spectacular winning opportunities. Symbols on the reels include a selection of fairies, as well as a donkeys and doves. They all have a somewhat ancient or even other worldly look. They can appear as split symbols too, which offers the prospect of 10 symbol combinations.
The Dream logo is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus. When it replaces one of the fairies, donkey or dove it will appear as a split symbol and count as double.
Find the Free Games bonus symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll trigger the Free Games Bonus feature – here you’ll be awarded 7 free spins. The action plays out on a new set of reels but the pay scale remains the same as the base game. The Super Stacks also play out during the feature which is where you can make the really big money. Unfortunately, you can’t re-trigger any more free spins.
The visuals in The Dream have a certain hazy quality – it’s a colour palette of pale blues, purples, peaches and pinks which does feel a little overpowering at times. That said, the symbols do look pretty impressive when they hit in a Super Stack formation.
Those Super Stacks are the key to winning big in this medium to high variance slot – there will be plenty of times when the cashier doesn’t appear to be getting much action but if you manage to get a split symbol as the Super Stack and fill multiple reels the rewards can rack up pretty quickly.
The theme won’t appeal to all players, the graphics aren’t spectacular and the soundtrack is generic. The Super Stacks make The Dream worth playing though. Get lucky with them and The Dream can provide jackpots worthy of its name. It’s virtual identical to Madame Monarch (also by High5 Games) but graphics wise, you can see similarities to IGT’s Golden Goddess.
