Dream Date is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Microgaming that can be played from 15p to £60 a spin on all devices like smartphones, laptops and tablets. With a romance theme, you can play in either a historic or modern era. It comes with Hot Zones where you land the lady and the dream date to win cash prizes and/or free spins. There’s also a Free Spins feature where the Dream Date wild will expand on the middle reel and double your outcome.
Visually, Dream Date isn’t as nice looking as other Microgaming slots such as Jurassic World or Highlander – your first choice is to play in the historical or modern era. The historical era will take you back to the 19th century which reminds you of Jane Austen novels. The modern era takes you to a city landscape.
Each of them has 4 dates and you choose the Dream Date symbol which is the highest value symbol (25 times stake for 5 on a payline). The heart is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the scatter – it’s also the most lucrative giving you 50 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Dream Date comes with a Hot Zones feature – Hot Zones appear in the middle of reel 1 and 5. If you land the lady and any date in the Hot Zones, you’ll win a cash prize of up to 40 times your stake. If you land the lady and your dream date in the Hot Zones, you will get a cash prize as well as triggering the Free Spins feature.
You can also trigger the Free Spins feature by getting 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels – this will give you 8 free spins. If you get 3 scatters with Hot Zones and a Dream Date, you will get 16 free spins. During the feature, the Dream Date symbol becomes wild – if it lands on the middle reel, it will expand to give you wild reel. If this gives you a win, the win is subject to a 2x multiplier.
Dream Date is rather simple once you get spinning those reels – the key is the get the chosen Dream Date symbol in the Hot Zones which will give you access to the Free Spins feature. Medium variance, you can win up to 1,800 times your stake on every free spin where the 2x multiplier comes into play. Primarily targeted at ladies, I would play Playtech’s Gaelic Luck or Microgaming’s Playboy Gold if you’re looking for señoritas.
