Dreamzone slot – Gameplay and Features

Dreamzone is a grid slot, where you get a winning combo if you have at least three adjacent symbols (they must touch, either horizontally, or vertically).

The idea is to clear the field. It helps if you make winning combos, as these disappear. The remaining symbols drop so that you have new chances to make more winning combos.

The good news is that there are several boosters. Fireworks are guaranteed!

Various boosters that make your dreams better

You’ve got the Wild Feature, that gets you up to 5 wilds. Making winning combinations is much easier with those extra wilds, I can tell you that!

The Symbol Upgrade (it’s all in the name), upgrades a lower-tier symbol into a premium symbol. Not only do your odds improve in getting winning combos, but also in getting bigger winning combos.

The Scatter Pay is also more than a nice to have. It allows you to get a win without the need of having adjacent symbols.

And last but not least, the Symbol Explode. It removes four symbols from the grid, making it easier to clear the field.

How do you activate the bonus free spins?

When all symbols are removed from the grid, you have gained access to the free spins. Luckily you have the boosters, as described above! 

The free spins – progressive multipliers up to 512x!

The free spins are no different from the main game, except that you get a multiplier.

You start with x2 at Level 1 of the free spins. If you manage to clear the grid again, you’ll progress to Level 2 of the free spins. The multiplier now becomes x4.

At Level 3, the multiplier is x8. At Level 4, it is x16. And that goes up to and including Level 9, where the multiplier is a blistering 512x.

If you manage to spin a winning combo, you may multiply the corresponding win with an astonishing by 512x. It’s like the Reverse Martingale strategy!

The free spins end as soon as you fail to clear the grid.

Payout Rate (RTP)

Dreamzone’s payout percentage is 96.0%. It is okay, but not more than that.

The variance (volatility) of Dreamzone is medium to high.

Elk gives a score of 7 out of 10 for the volatility. So, the variance is medium.

Most top wins will be around 500x the bet. Odds of winning anything above that are marginal. In short, it must go incredibly crazy if you get to the last level of the free spins (with the top multiplier of 512x).

In any case, the max win is 2,500x the bet.

Other Elk Studios slots with similar volatility are Micro Knights, Ho Ho Tower or The Wiz.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Fantastic theme with beautiful colours. Close to a more modern version of Starburst.
  • Exciting, as you’re always hoping to progress to the next level with the free spins.
  • Plenty of fireworks.
  • High odds to land wins of 200x to 500x the bet.

Cons

  • You’re not going to land a massive win of several thousand times the bet.
  • At some point, it gets a bit monotonous. The free spins play the same as the main game.

So, who will like the slot? And who won’t?

Players who love Starburst or similar futuristic slots will surely enjoy playing this slot. Grid slots, in combination with some fantastic boosters, is always a good recipe for fun.

Dreamzone will not make you rich. Looking at that, you can indeed argue if the name’s a little overrated.

However, Dreamzone will provide quality entertainment, Elk Studios style.
