The symbols include Celtic runes, druidic instruments, and forest creatures, backed by an atmospheric, lilting backtrack to complete the ambiance. Stacked symbols feature heavily in this slot with free spins, charged wild response, and a nudge feature all along for the magical ride. This slot has a wide betting range of $0.20 to $400 and can be enjoyed across all devices.
- The lower value symbols are blue, green, yellow, and red rune-stones which pays out between 0.6x and 0.3x for 5 on a payline.
- The high-value symbols are represented by instruments and animals.
- The wild symbol is the word WILD in golden letters laid across the surface of a red sphere, substitutes for any symbol and pays out 5x for 5 on a payline.
- The scatter symbol has 3 representations; a male druid only appears on reel 2, a female druid only appears on reel 4 and a forest bear scatter which only appears on reel 3 during free spins. The male and female druid symbols will help you activate free spins.
- Charged wilds / respins
The slot's wild symbols can appear stacked in reels 2 and 4 during the base game. If a wild stack and a scatter appear on either reel the wilds and scatter become sticky and trigger respins, the number of which will match the number of wilds in your stack. If a respin results in a wild stack landing on the unoccupied reel, the games nudge feature is activated, giving you an additional chance to land a second scatter and trigger free spins.
- Free spins
If 2 wild stacks with scatters appear on reels 2 and 4, free spins will be triggered. You will start with 6 free spins and the wilds and scatters that got you to the bonus mode become sticky for the duration of the feature. You can get 3 more free spins if a third wild stack with a bear scatter appears on reel 3. The potential here is obvious as the wild stacks will allow you to build a steady stream of wins while the free spins are active.
Druid's Dream Slot Gameplay
Druid's Dream slot is a departure of sorts for NetEnt. Their catalogue is filled with high-energy, richly detailed games while this title is more restrained and basic. The game's graphics and music, while simple, are undeniably enchanting and provide a tranquil-feeling experience. The slot's maximum promise of 200x your stake can easily be criticised but it is balanced out by a maximum bet amount of $400. One wonders if NetEnt shouldn't have led with a higher win ratio amount and smaller betting range to make this title seem more appealing. That aside, the game has an RTP of 96.0% which is fair and the breadth of what can be achieved with wild symbols is explored quite extensively throughout the base and bonus games. If Starburst was NetEnt's espresso then this is its chamomile tea, inoffensive, relaxing and casual. Check out Druid's Dreams online slot if you're on the hunt for a chilled time.
