Druids’ Dream slot review (Netent)

For a minute, we hoped for a new version of the Secret of the Stones (also one full of references to Celtic Druids), but that hope turned out to be in vain. So no druid 2.0 there. Druid’s Dream is a dreamy, somewhat lazy slot. Unfortunately, this slot packs too little to spice things up and get us excited. We do like the two rejuvenated druid ‘youngsters,’ very druid 2.0!

Druid’s Dream is a Netent video slot that takes us into the magical, wonderful world of the Druids

You can spin wilds, respins and sticky wilds, but everything happens at such a slow pace and such long intervals that it quickly becomes a bit annoying. We had expected the dreams of a druid 2.0 to be a little more exciting and up-tempo!

Visually, Druid’s Dream looks impeccable: through the trees in the forest, you can see the light shining, and that gives a magical effect. The music also fits the mysterious theme perfectly.

The Druid’s Dream gameplay and features

Druid’s Dream is played on a playing field of 5 x 4 and has 40 fixed paylines. Remarkably you can form winning combinations from both sides.

The variance is low to medium. You can (with a full screen of the highest paying symbol combined with stacked wilds) grab 200 x the total bet per spin. But that’s a sporadic event.

The theoretical payout rate is set at 96%. That’s a bit lower than most Netent slots and not enough for a spot in our top 10 best-paying slots.

Wagering starts with bets of 20 cents per spin and runs up to a hefty $€ 400. Concerning the stakes, Netent always makes sure their slots are attractive to both the low rollers and the high stakes players.

 

Symbols and payouts

The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the scatters.

If you spin five wilds on an active payline, you make 5 x the total bet.

The premium symbols consist of the white wolf and the wise owl. These are respectively worth 5 x and 3 x the total bet with five the same.

And then the payouts drop off hard fast. The drum and the tooth(?) are worth no more than 1.1 x and 1 x the bet with five identical ones, and the low symbols (stones with runes characters) return even less than your stake.

However, all symbols are stacked; so there’s that.

Wild Charge and re-spins

Every wild that appears on reel 2 or 4 combined with a scatter (the male or female druid) awards you a respin.

All the wilds are kept in place, but the more lucrative plan is to land a second scatter. This earns you the free spins bonus.

It is also possible to activate a nudge function, which offers you extra opportunities to land that desired second scatter.

Free spins bonus

Two scatters on reels 2, and 4 get you six free spins, holding every sticky wild in place.

Each charged wild on reels 2 and 4 also awards you +1 free spin.

During the free spins, you have several extra boosters:

  • A stacked wild on the entire 3rd reel gives you +3 free spins.
  • All wilds on the screen (when the bonus was activated) are sticky and stay in place during the free spins.

Our verdict on Druids’ Dream

Unfortunately is the Druids’ Dream video slot, not Netent’s best online game. It is a pity Netent did not put their backs into it; it is all too predictable. So the makeover of the druid into druid youngsters is about the only high light.

Although this slot game certainly has positive features (the respins and the sticky wilds), it often remains a bit tame.

Nowhere did we get the feeling this slot would blow our minds, and if you’re not careful, you’ll end up in lalaland yourself.
