Will the beautiful ancestral lands of the native American tribes grab your attention in this 243 ways to win game? Or will they send you sleeping and dreaming of mystical riches in the Mystic Dreams slot?
We should point out that Mystic Dreams mobile slot has all the markings of a great video slot. It has 243 ways to win. It has a good betting range. It’s even medium volatility, which is generally our favourite. Good enough to not eat all your budget quickly, but still giving you hopes for some decent wins. And we will get to all these good points in a minute.
Yet you can’t have failed to notice the two stars. Which is somewhere in the ‘little below average’ region and rare for Microgaming slots. Honestly, we got bored playing this mobile slot machine, but it wasn’t that we weren’t winning.
It’s just that Mystic Dreams slot game theme is too chilled out for us. So much so that you’ll sleep through the big wins. If you are the kind of casino player who is happy to spin and not look at the results, great. At online casinos you can have it playing on a second tab and put it on automatic.
On mobile, there’s no auto play function, and the wolves, soft new age music and unimpressive graphics made the wins seems unexciting, even when we got some decent 30x / 50x our bet.
A little yes.
Look, play this slot for free, take it for a few spins, and if you love the theme… then you might just have a decent game here. Here’s why.
The wilds, for one, also replace scatters. Meaning you can get the free spins easier. And once you hit the free spins, the real action starts with this mystic slot. Because whenever a wild shows up on reel 2, 3 or 4 it comes with a multiplier of the same amount. So a wild on reel two comes with a 2x multiplier etc…
These are cumulative, so if you get three wilds on each of the five reels, you can easily get a 24x multiplier and guaranteed 3x 4 of a kind wins. If we’d hit that we suspect the star rating in this Mystic Dream slot review would have been a little higher. As it stands we usually hit a few 3x multipliers and 6x multipliers, which are not bad if the symbols line up just right.
The point here is that there are some good wins to be had here. It is beautifully drawn if you like that kind of thing, and that wild and multiplier make this one worth checking out for players who like a little risk… but not too much. Though fans of the same kind of thrills may be equally interest in the wonderfully simple, but great, Twin Spin slot review.
What?? Just saying. Choice is everything.

Wilds: The wild symbol is the teepee tent with dream catcher in the background. This little beauty may not look very interesting, but is, in fact, the best symbol of the lot. Not only does it replace all other symbols, including the scatter, but also comes with some impressive multipliers in the free spin game.
Free Spins & Scatters: This is the bonus feature that livens up the entire game. Once you hit it and the dusk sky turns to a starry moonlit night, the real action happens.
3, 4 or 5 scatters triggers 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively. Now, because the wild can replace a scatter, getting at least 15 free spins is not as hard as you might think. 20 a little harder, granted, but still easier than on most mobile phone slots.
Plus, when the wilds show up, they come with a multiplier. On reel 2 they have a 2x multiplier, on reel 3 a 3x multiplier and on reel 4 a 4x multiplier. If you get more than one showing on the reels, these are multiplied together for bigger multiplier totals.
So a wild on reel 2 and reel 3 will give you a multiplier of 6x.
Wilds on reel 3 and 4 gives you 12x multiplier.
And of course, get a wild on all three of these reels and it accumulates as a 24x times multiplier. With 243 ways to wins, you are almost guaranteed a win each time on these.
Doesn't mean you will always walk away with tons of cash, but it does mean that there is a real possibility for it. More importantly, it feels possible, as even getting an 8x multiplier is impressive enough to keep you hooked.
Mystic Dreams mobile slot actually has a lot to recommend it. We are usually pretty good at ignoring the theme if the slot machine is good, but this one sent us to snoozeville way too fast.
However, if North American snowy mountains are your thing, you may find just the big mystical riches you dreamed about as you chase that 24x multiplier.
Or you could read all about the like of Microgaming's Beach Babes slot as an alternative. Because snooooooze...
