Travel to sacred woodlands and unveil Celtic treasures in Druid’s Dream online slot by NetEnt. Druids were revered in ancient times for their seemingly magical connection to the elemental forces of nature, which also forms the theme of this title. The stony reels are filled with ancient runes, forest creatures and magical instruments against a vibrant forest background. A light, lilting tune accompanies the charming visuals to good effect. The slot has some creative uses of special features, with free spins, charged stacked wilds, respins, and a nudge feature to bring you closer to gilded glory.
The wild symbol can appear stacked on reels 2 and 4 and may be accompanied by a scatter symbol. When this happens the wild stack becomes charged, locking the wild in place and allocating you a corresponding number of free spins equal to the number of Wilds in your stack – this means a maximum of 3 respins per stack. If another wild stack lands after a respin, the nudge feature kicks in which gives you an extra chance to land a second scatter, which will set off the free spins mode.
If you land 2 wild stacks with accompanying scatters on reels 2 and 4, you will activate free spins. The bonus game starts you off with 6 free spins and the wild stacks remain locked in place. During free spins, a special wild stack can land on reel 3, featuring a bear scatter symbol. If this happens you will receive an additional 3 free spins.
Druid’s Dream is a somewhat subdued title from NetEnt who normally deal in much more fast-paced fare. The base game offers moderate excitement as all symbols can stack and the charged wilds feature can provide you with a decent string of wins. The free spins mode does quicken the pace a little, and the ability to retrigger the feature with the bear scatter can net you a handsome pile of coins.
This slot’s main appeal is the immersive nature of the serene design and music, making it a good choice if you want a relaxed experience while you spin. The game’s maximum win potential of 200x your stake does seem pitifully low at first, however, the betting range goes all the way up to $400, giving you a decent top possible prize of $80 000. This game may not suit everyone’s thirst for thrills, but if your preferences veer more towards the laid-back side of things, you’ll probably have a good time.
