Free Druids’ Dream slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Druids' Dream slot by Netent at least brings us the rarely used theme of these ancient peoples and their belief in all things natural. We get a forest scene behind the reels and some lovely haunting music in the background to complement the subject. There have been a couple, namely Lightning Box's Druidess Gold with the fancy Reelfecta mechanic that they also used on the weird and wonderful Astro Cat slot, but the only other is by Ganapati titled Dawn of The Druids. Despite being HQ'd in London, they don't have a UKGC license so you may not have seen that one, good as it is. Anyway, will these Druids be providing a dream start for our bankroll?
We begin with 40 pay lines over 5 reels of 4 rows apiece on Druids' Dream slot and wins pay both ways. Symbols appear stacked too but in the case of the Wild only on reels 2 and 4 but we'll come to that later. Your 5-of-a-kind pays are Wild or Wolf 5x bet, Owl 3x, Drum 1.1x, Pot 1x with four runes at 0.6 down to 0.3x. This slot is all about those Wilds though and the stacked ones on reels 2 and 4 also have a scatter below and above them respectively. Should one land fully or partially in view with a scatter visible, you get a re-spin for each Wild present.
You will likely be in the re-spins when you trigger these. To assist, you get a nudge feature so when either reel 2 or 4 with the Wild stack and scatter visible has triggered the re-spins, should the other reel land the stacked Wild without a scatter, then the nudge will likely help you. If it doesn't appear, you just play out the re-spins. If it does, then you trigger 6 free spins plus an extra spin for each Wild locked in on reels 2 and 4. Your Wilds in view on reels 2 and 4 plus the scatters now become sticky Wilds for the duration. A Bear scatter inside a stack of Wilds is now added to reel 3 during them which awards +3 spins and you can still get single Wilds on reels 1 and 5. You won't win a huge amount here, but it can be fun to watch.
Druids' Dream slot is atmospheric, quite colourful considering the subject and we get some reasonable animations too. the Wild re-spins are quite frequent and the free games aren't hard to trigger either although bear in mind it's a low-volatility slot so even with a 96.00% RTP you may see some lenghty play time but wins of over 100x will be rare. To demonstrate this point, a maximum screen of Wolves and Wilds over all 40 lines will only pay 200x bet and you'll be very lucky to get close to that! These Druids are quite nice it seems, but I won't be dreaming about spending my money here again...
