Nowadays, we enjoy a period of untold peace and prosperity. It can be easy to forget the world was a much more hostile place until quite recently, and constantly changing. Many cultures and religions have been relegated to the history books, with their elements appearing occasionally in slots. The same case applies for druids, and their homes in the Celtic forests in Druids’ Dream online slots game. Apprentices willing to join can look forward to stacked Wilds, re-spins, free spins and nudges.
All the action takes place in a grove, far away from any civilisation. The massive trees tell us this forest has been undisturbed for a while. We see other trees and vegetation in the distance, but the reels sit on a particularly large tree. The sun illuminates the tree, and is much more colourful than its surroundings as a result. We can see how vibrantly green its leaves are. It draws a lot of attention to itself, to the point where you might miss a rune stone beneath the tree. We get a closer look at it and other carved stones during one of the special features, where druidic magic comes out to play!

How it Works in Druids’ Dream
You play this Druids’ Dream game on a five-reel board with forty fixed paylines. That means punters cannot turn them on or off as they see fit. To win, you need to find at least three identical symbols in adjacent positions. Something unique about this NetEnt release is the fact winning combinations can occur both ways! As long as they follow an active payline, a win can be formed both left to right and right to left. Using the control panel, we can easily adjust our bet level, as well as look at the paytable, set up Auto Play, activate Turbo mode and spin the reels. Players can wager between £0.20 and £400.00 on each spin in Druids’ Dream. If you ever get tired of the sounds, you can also turn it off with the push of a button.
Icon designs in Druids’ Dream draw heavily from both the forest and Celtic aspects of this slot’s theme. Druids’ Dream has glowing rune stones as low value symbols. Other icons include a flute, a primitive drum, an owl and a wolf. The word Wild written on a brown background is the Wild icon. We also have a male and female druid appear as Scatters! The male Druids’ Dream Scatter only appears on reel two, and the female Druids’ Dream Scatter only appears on reel four.
Wilds can appear as single Druids’ Dream symbols on the first, third and fifth reel during normal gameplay, as well as on reel three during re-spins and reels one and five during free spins. At the same time, Wilds appear stacked on reels two and four in the main game and re-spins, and on reel three during free spins. While a bit complicated to read, it makes a lot more sense once you see it in action. The end goal is to get Wild stacks to align with Scatter positions.
Stacked Wilds on reels two or four together with one Scatter charges the Wilds and plays re-spins. Every charged Wild gives you one re-spin, for a maximum of three. The Druids’ Dream Scatter and Wilds remain locked in place while all the other reels re-spin. This gives you an increased opportunity to activate free spins! Furthermore, a stack of Wilds landing on reels two or four without a Scatter activates the Nudge bonus on the next re-spin. This gives you an extra shot at landing the second Scatter. The Nudge special feature in Druids’ Dream ends when a second Scatter is drawn, or when you run out of re-spins.
Getting two Scatters on reels two and four awards six free spins. The charged Wild mechanic is still present, and adds an additional free spin for every Wild in Druids’ Dream. All Scatters transform into Wilds for the duration of this special feature. Furthermore, all Wilds will remain on the reels until free spins end! Now, a stack of Wilds and a Scatter can appear on reel three. If both a Scatter and stacked Wilds appear together, they award three more free spins.
The Verdict of Druids’ Dream
As far as visuals are concerned, this online slot sites release is fantastic. The animations and graphics are top notch, as we expect from NetEnt. That said, Druids’ Dreams is a little too low-value for our liking. It has a low-medium variance, which we are okay with. However, the 200x jackpot is a little too low for our liking. This is a slot aimed at a very casual audience, which is something to keep in mind if you choose to play it. Do not expect any massive wins!
