A Native American Themed Pokie with Free Spins and Super Wild Respins
A Shaman is considered to be an individual who can influence good and evil spirits through altered states of consciousness and was prevalent in Native America. This Aristocrat designed pokie features a Shaman as the leading character on the reels, doubling up as the wild symbol. Alongside the Shaman you’ll find symbols such as a horn, a drum and a tepee, while an eagle and a wolf make up the wildlife on the reels. Check out the great American landscape imagery in the backdrop too.
Shaman’s Dream is an enjoyable and atmospheric game with the following range of features:
• A five-reel slot featuring 25 win-lines that pay from left to right.
• Super Wild Re-spins where many wild Shaman characters are added to the reels.
• Magic Lines which will see any wilds replicated to fill the entire reel.
• A free spins bonus feature with bonus reels and retrigger chances.
Super Wild Respins are one of a number of features on offer during Shaman’s Dream. The feature is activated when you land the ancient pot symbol in the middle position of reel five during the base game. All of the symbols will now dim and remain in the background, while the reels will spin again over the top. This respin will contain only blank spaces and the Shaman wild and you’ll be hoping that many Shaman remain on the reels after the respin, joining the symbols from the original spin. The reels will now be re-evaluated with the added wilds.
The Magic Line of Shaman’s Dream runs through the middle positions of each of the five reels. Any time you land one of the Shaman wilds on this line, the Shaman will expand to fill the entire reel (if by doing so it will lead to an additional win). Land a series of Shaman on this Magic Line and you can expect a mega pay out across many of the win lines.
Your final feature in this Aristocrat designed pokie is the free spins bonus round. Look out for the tepee symbol which appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Land the bonus symbol on each of these three reels and you’ll enter the free spins bonus round.
You’ll enjoy 10 free spins on entering the feature. The reels now become ‘bonus’ reels offering the opportunity for more activation of both the Super Wild Respins and the Magic Line Replicated Wilds. Land the three bonus symbols again and the feature will be retriggered, which will see 10 more spins added to your existing total.
Shaman’s Dream is a five-reel pokie with a set total of 25 win-lines, each of these lines paying from left to right. The Shaman wild symbol is the highest paying in the game, worth 500 coins for five in a row. The wild will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter and the super wild respin symbol. At the high end of the pay table you’ll also find the wolf, the eagle, a drum and a horn, each with a top prize of 200 coins. The lower end of the pay table is filled with the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The backdrop to Shaman’s Dream shows an image of the Grand Canyon, seemingly long before Europeans came to the American continent. The moon shines bright and stars twinkle in the night sky. The reels spin with a dreamlike effect, as blue smoke rises up through the reels, giving the game a magical feel. The Shaman symbol stands out, especially when appearing on the Magic line and expanding, with added animation as the Shaman casts a spell. The accompanying soundtrack is high on energy, although this could have reflected the theme a little more.
At first glance, you might consider that Shaman’s Dream plays out like many other poker machines. However, there are a number of hidden gems in play here. Land that ancient pot on reel five and the Super Wild Respins kick in, almost ensuring a nice pay. The replicating wilds on the Magic Line is always on hand to give any spin a boost too. Throw in the free spins feature and you’ve got a pokie which is full of variety.
