Any sequel needs to be better than its predecessor, and Shaman’s Dream is a useful update to the original slot. The visuals are excellent, with all game symbols thematically tailored and designed neatly. Eyecon slots vary between use of pay structures, and while slots like Legend of the 5 Ninjas use 243 Ways to Win, Shaman’s Dream favours a 25 payline system in keeping with the original title. Each has its benefits, but as always with online slots the true path to jackpots lies in the bonus features. Shaman’s Dream 2 offers two such bonuses, plus Wolf Wilds that double wins when they complete them.
Pros & Cons
- Good update on the original slot.
- Free Games can be retriggered up to 15 times.
- Prizes tripled during free spins
- Low max jackpot.
- Game sounds/music only kick in when wins are scored.
- Paylines rather than Ways to Win.
How to Play
The 25 payline system means not only that you have to match symbols left to right but also that they need to land across the 25 payline patterns. When you play online slots you will likely enjoy multiple variants of pay systems, and in Shaman’s Dream 2 you have the option to play as little as 0.01 by adjusting the bet per line and number of lines played using the handy slider in the bet toggle. Such a system was the standard used originally in classic online games like Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches slot, though the danger of playing only one payline per spin is that you could miss wins on other paylines.
For all pay table queries or settings adjustments simply open up the settings menu by pressing the three lines symbol to the bottom right of the reels. The spin button sits directly beneath the reels, press this to set the reels in motion and get your slot adventure underway.
The visuals in the Shaman’s Dream 2 slot are awesome, with each game symbol excellently designed to bring the game’s theme to life. A Totem, Medicine Bag, Hatchets and Bear make up the lower paying symbols, paying 100 coins for five on a payline. The mid-range symbols are Dagger, Wigwam, Buffalo and Eagle, paying between 125 – 250 coins for landing five across a payline. But in online slots play the big wins are scored by landing the game’s high paying symbols, in this case a Squaw, Shaman and Brave, paying between 450 – 950 coins for landing five on a payline. The Wolf Wild is the game’s top paying symbol, however. Not only does it offer 9,500 coins for landing five across a payline it also doubles any other wins it completes.
The Free Games feature is the ultimate aim when playing the Shaman’s Dream 2 slot, though the Instant Prize feature occurs readily to award additional base game payouts.
