Set over 5×5 reels this Snake Arena Dream Drop slot promises some wild features and the Dream Drop jackpots, all available on any random spin.
If you’ve ever played on snakes on your Nokia back in your childhood, there will be something vaguely familiar about this retro-looking pixilated machine.
The slot theme has been modernised, set over 20 paylines with pretty crown, eye, ham, and beer symbols in high paying symbols, followed by the gold, bronze, blue, and silver coin as low paying.
You have 30 paylines where the knight will act as a wild symbol, followed by wild reels and scatters that trigger the free spins bonus. During the free spins, the snake wild will grow progressively larger, until it eats itself.
Snake Arena Dream Drop is a mid-to-low volatility Dream Drop slot with a top win of 1,000 your bet in the base game, but 5 progressive jackpots that can lead you to win millions.
The base game only has a couple of features. The first is the Knight wild. The second is the wild chase.
During the wild chase, a dragon and a Knight will play peek-a-boo above and below the reel. If they match, you get a wild reel. You can get all 5 reels to become wild if you are lucky, but for the most part, you’ll get 2 or three.
This helps to create fast action on the reels as you wait for the free spins – which you’ll trigger by getting a Knight and a dragon on the reels at the same time.
Trigger the free spins and the snake will go and eat the Knight. On each spin this happens, with the snake getting one symbol larger each time.
This snake is also a wild symbol, so what you get is a progressively expanding walking wild. Not something you see often, not even on big walking wild slots like the Halloween Jack slot, for example.
Technically, if you are lucky, you can get the snake to fill reels 2-5, get huge wins on all 30 paylines, and an instant win of 1,000x your bet. More often than not, the snake will end up eating a part of its own, and the bonus will end.
At the end of the day, what you want to find in this Snake Arena Dream Drop mobile slot is the DD symbol. This shows up randomly on any spin, though the higher your bet the higher your chance of catching it.
In one random spin, you will try and catch one DD symbol on each of the reels. Here you’ll trigger a mini bonus game where you are guaranteed to win one of the five Dream Drops Jackpots.
Two, the Mega and the Major, have a max drop amount – the major is half a million, but the mega changes depending on how often it’s been won. The first time, it was a million, but it can be as much as 10 million. And the slot always tells you how close you are to the top.

The Wild: The Knight and any part of the snake in the free spins is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols on the reels.
Jackpot Spin and Dream Drop Bonus: Randomly on any spin, you may trigger a jackpot spin. The 5 reels will spins and only blank and DD symbols can land. Get 5 DD symbols, one on each reel, to trigger the jackpot game.
Here you will spin a wheel of fortune and win one of five possible jackpots.
The Free Spins Feature: Landing the snakehead on reel 1 and a knight symbol on any other reel triggers this feature.
The reason for this is simple. During the bonus game, a Knight symbol is always guaranteed to land. The snake will elongate and eat the knight. On each turn, the snake gets larger, and the whole snake and its body are a wild symbol.
The game ends when reels 2-5 are filled up by the snake or the snake crashes into itself. If possible, the snake will always choose to go around itself to eat the knight. If it can't it will eat itself and end the bonus round.
If you fill reels 2-5 with wild symbols, you'll instantly win 1,000x your bet.
Wild Chase Feature: This feature can randomly appear during a spin. The snake peeks out from one of the reels above, and the knight peeks out from one of the reels below. If the two find themselves over the same reel, you get a wild reel. You get three goes, and you can get multiple wild reels. If they don't match by the third go, you get to play one spin with whatever wild reels you've chosen.
The Snake Arena Dream Drop slot game is all about that jackpot, everything else is window dressing until you can hit one of the five jackpots on the reels and win big. Like millions big.
The downside is that, much like the Mega Moolah slots or any other progressives, the RTP is a low 94% because you have to account for all the bets that pay to get the jackpots up and running.
Jackpot hunters will love it, but if you are not a fan, this won't convince you to start playing. Instead, maybe try the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Rush slot instead.
Personally, we can see ourselves happily spinning away when those must-drop jackpots get close to the maximum amount.
