The wombat says: Intrigued by spirit animals and the ancient culture and beliefs of Native Americans?
Then the Shaman’s Dream slot from Eyecon Gaming (those nice people behind the Enchanted Price slot and Fluffy Too) will be right up your street. Just like Turning Totems, White Buffalo and Mystic Dreams this slot takes us on a spiritual journey to the North American continent.
Let’s see what this game is made of…
Look and Feel
The background to the completely see through reels is a picturesque mountain landscape at sunset – it could be the Rockies but to be honest who knows? It’s an altogether more traditional design compared to something like the Flame slot but no worse for it.
Above the game’s logo there are 3 wooden planks where three numbers are displayed – the current amount in the player’s account, the current bet and the amount that has been won on the last winning combination. That’s about it. The graphics are nice enough.
It seems as though the Shaman had two dreams, as there are 2 versions of this game: the standard and the Shaman´s Dream Jackpot slot.
Just like the standard game, the wolf is wild, so he will track down other symbols and replace them to make up combos. And, here´s the good bit on the jackpot version: if you land a pack of 5 wolves then it´s time to howl “Kerching” as the reward is a tasty 9,500x your stake. Arooooo!
Shaman’s Dream Slot Game Play
This 5-reel slot that has 3 rows and 25 pay-lines- just like the White Wizard slot machine which is also from Eyecon and involves even more lashings of the mystic dust.
Your symbols on the reels include, a totem pole with some kind of winged bird-like creature, an ornate necklace with beaded laces, two small axes, a bear catching a salmon in a stream, a leather knife sheath and the ultimate symbol of Native American family life – the teepee.
Meanwhile the high value icons are made up of the white buffalo, a regal looking white-headed eagle, a Native American girl, a Native American chief, a fierce warrior-looking bloke and the highest paying symbol in the slot, the magnificent white wolf.
You’ll scoop a massive 9500 coins if you landing 5x of these bad boys on the reels, but this symbol is also the Wild icon in Shaman’s Dream slot and will do the usual jobs of substituting for all other symbols on the reels (except for the scatter) to make up more winning combinations for you.
The iconic dreamcatcher is your Scatter symbol in Shaman’s Dream slot. Land 3x or more of them anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the free spins.
The player gets 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier on all wins you land that will be doubled to a x6 multiplier if a wild icon contributes to your winning combination. Oh and one more thing wombat fans, this round can be re-triggered up to a maximum of 15 times – which is absolutely ruddy awesome!
This slot also comes with handy little gamble bonus that can be played after any winning spin during the base game. Double your bet by guessing the right suit of the card – either black or red.
The doubling of each consecutive win can go up to a whopping great sum of £32,000 or 5 correct selections (whichever comes first). A wrong pick = game over for you and you’ll lose you all your cash too. We recommend that you channel your inner shaman and choose wisely…
On the whole Eyecon don’t make the best looking slots (like Striker Goes Wild for example), but they’ve done a decent job on the Shaman’s Dream slot which makes a nice change.
However what really stands out about this slot for us are the doubled Wild winnings in the Free Spins round. A x6 multiplier can never ever be sniffed at, and will always lead to some chunky wins!
Wombat Score: 4/5
