The Druid’s Dream mobile slot feels a little bit like a dream: beautiful, enchanting and quick to move from one thing to the next without any real consequences.
We love casino slots that allow us to escape into a fantastical landscape outside of our own homes, and this Druid’s Dream game does just that.
Set deep in the ancient forests of England, you’ve got ruins as low paying symbols, shaman tools as mid paying symbols, and then the owl and the wolf as the highest paying symbols of the lot.
The paytable isn’t the most generous – a 5 of a kind win with the wolf, for example, will only win you 5x your bet. But this Druid’s Dream slot is a 40 payline game set over 5 reels and 4 rows of symbols, so you know that the goal here is to get more than one win at a time.
If you are a fan of NetEnt’s Secrets of the Stones slot, don’t expect the same kind of magic here. There’s still magic, but it doesn’t have as much flourish.
For one, you get pay both ways reels. Meaning you get wins from left to right or right to left, giving you lots of little wins and glittering sounds to distract the mind from the fact that the wins are that: small.
The reason is that you need to catch wild symbols. They can come singularly, or on reel 2 and 4, they can come stacked. This helps give this Druid’s Dream video slot a little momentum, especially if you can catch some scatters on reel 2 and 3.
Because if you get scatters and wilds, then you’ll see something truly magical happen: you’ll get free re-spins of the reels, with the wild/scatters locked in place. You’ll get one free re-spin for every wild you catch with that scatter druid.
Again, Dead or Alive 2 slot machine fans, don’t get too excited. These sticky wilds are here to dazzle and entertain, as every scatter catches more and more wild symbols, and give you more and more re-spins.
What we love is that the wilds do stay in place, giving you ample opportunities to catch wins of 600x your bet or more, on multiple spins. It’s got an energy that is fun, but only if you can get that momentum of wilds during the Druid’s Dream bonus games.
We suspect lots of high-risk players will find these woods a little too tame for their liking, but we enjoyed playing on a slot that wasn’t hard on the wallet and gave us value for money with every nudge, every re-spins and every stack wild on screen.
The Druid’s Dream slot is perfect for people who’ve played real money slots such as Temple of Nudge or the Secrets of Atlantis slot game. Easy to understand, beautiful, and with small NetEnt touches that make it better than most other online mobile slots.

Wilds and Stacked Wilds: The Orb is the wild symbol and can appear as a single wild symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the main game. They can appear stacked on reel 2 and 4 at all times. They can also appear stacked on reel 3, but in the free spins only.
These can replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win.
Win Both Ways: This Druid's Dream slot pays from left to right and from right to left along 40 payline.
Wild Charge, Nudge and Respins: There's three types of scatter: The male druid, the female druid and the bear. If one of these lands on reel 2 or 4 together with wild symbols (one or more), these symbols become charged and activate a re-spin of the reels, with the wild and scatter symbols locked in place.
Each charged wild gives you a re-spin. Any extra wilds that land, on either reel, will stay locked in place, but they are only 'charged' if they also land with a scatter. The scatter, in this case, will also turn into a wild symbol.
If one or more wild symbol lands on reel 2 or 4 without a scatter, this can activate the nudge feature which will move the reels up or down to try and land a second scatter symbol on the reels.
Scatter and Free Spins: 2 Scatters landing on reel 2 and 4 at the same time will activate 6 free spins. All wild symbol landing on reel 2 or 4 together with the scatter symbol will stay sticky on screen for the duration of the bonus spins, as well as award you with on additional free spins. A scatter symbol landing on reel 3 during the free spins will also award you with an additional +3 spins, plus potentially lock and charge more symbols onto the reel.
As long as you keep your dreams realistic in this NetEnt slot on mobile, you will come to enjoy a beautiful machine with lots of stacked wilds and re-spins.
Will this Druid's Dream slot stay on your must-play list of games for 2020? Probably not. But you will almost certainly enjoy it when you spin it, especially with a minimum bet of 0.20 a spin for 40 paylines.
A low to mid variance game, this is for fans of the likes of the popular Starburst or even the Wilderland slot game. It's easy to play, you get lots of stacks of wilds, and you rarely go 20 spins without something happening on screen.
Walk away if you get wins anywhere close to 100x to 400x your bet, but that's enchantment enough to want to walk through these woods again.
