Mystic Dreams is a slot with a Native American theme. Usually, when you think of a slot set on the North American plain, you would imagine hot weather. However, this slot is set in freezing, icy conditions in the mountains. The Native Americans are all settled in and around a blazing fire to keep warm. On the reels are a combination of wild animals and themed symbols such as a totem pole, a wigwam and a Native American chief.
This slot utilises the all-ways winning system, giving players 243 ways to win during each spin. The game also features a free spins round, which can be activated in a slightly easier way than usual.
This MicroGaming designed slot features five reels, with 3 symbols showing on each of the reels. The all-ways winning system means that you don’t have the usual win lines. Instead you’ll win when you land symbols on consecutive reels from left to right, regardless of the position. This gives you 243 ways to win on each spin and these come at the cost of 60 credits.
The stern looking Native American chief is the highest paying symbol in the game. You’ll win 5,000 coins if you manage to land this symbol on each of the five reels. An old and grey looking buffalo is next on the pay table, with a top win amount of 4,000 coins. A wolf and an eagle are the joint next highest paying symbols, and each pay 2,000 coins.
The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The Ace has a top prize of 400 coins, while the 9 has a top pay out of 200 coins.
The wild symbol is represented by a wigwam, which shows a large dream catcher in the background and a raging fire out front. This wild will substitute for any other symbol in the game. This is very unusual in the fact that it will also substitute for the scatter symbol. The wild doesn’t offer any win amounts by itself, but if you land one on each of the five reels you’ll win 5,000 coins by substituting for the chief.
The scatter symbol is represented by the top of a totem pole. You can see the heads of three creatures at the top of the pole, the most obvious of which is the large eagle at the top. This eagle has large wings which are spread out menacingly. Like the standard symbols, you’ll win with this scatter by landing consecutive symbols from left to right. The maximum five scatters pay 3,000 coins, four scatters pay 1,200 coins and three scatters is worth 300 coins.
3, 4 or 5 scatters from left to right will also enter the free spins feature with 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. During these spins the wild symbol becomes much more important. When it appears on reels 2, 3 or 4, any wins using the wild will be the subject of 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers. These wilds can act as a team. For example, a win with a 2x and a 3x multiplier will multiply your total win by 6. The best-case scenario sees you land a win with the 2x, 3x and 4x wild multipliers in play. This will give you an incredible multiplier of 24x on your win.
The backdrop to this Native American themed slot shows a snowy North American scene. Snow-capped mountains are towards the left of the screen, while the snow thins on the rocky surface to the right. Here you’ll find a series of Wigwams with a roaring fire in the middle. The reels themselves have a more basic look, with a plain blue background. The symbols are well designed, although more animation would have brought the game to life. A gentle Native American theme tune plays throughout, which adds to the atmosphere of the game.
Mystic Dreams is an enjoyable and in places unique slot. This isn’t the only Native American themed slot online, although you won’t find any others with the same snowy feel. The all-ways winning system gives the game a different feel and this is only added to by the unique use of the wild. This wild substitutes for the scatter and adds impressive multipliers in the feature too. This MicroGaming design isn’t the best slot you’ve ever played, but it is certainly worth a spin.
