Dream Date Betting and Prizes
Because you need to support the presence of 243 ways to win, you are going to have to spend your money on a fixed number of lines, which the slot considers enough for that purpose.
They used only 15 fixed lines in this game, while others will go with 25 or 30, so I’d say that it’s a good deal for the player, at least when it comes for the impression that you’re getting. You have wagers as small as $0.15 that you can place, or as large as $60. Based on those numbers, the line bet can be calculated as ranging from $0.01 to $4.
The ideal situation in this game is to have a free spin where an expanding wild is present on reel 3, since its 2x multiplier gets applied to wins. That way, you can get paid up to an amazing $108,000 during a single spin of Dream Date.
Dream Date Slot Features
The regular wild symbol is the one showing you a Heart and it’s usable in the game as a substitute most of the times. Rewards of its own can be delivered under the right conditions, with up to $3,000 paid out for five of those symbols on five reels. There is no substitution when it comes to the scatter, but regular symbols are influenced by its presence.
As for the Dream Date mechanic, you get that one through the Hot Zones which are placed in the middle of the 1st and 5th reels. The middle positions need to get at the same time the image of the Woman and that of a Date.
If it’s any random date, then the reward for that will be just a cash prize that could get to 40x total bet. If it’s the date that was chosen at the start of the game, then besides the cash prize there is also a free spins feature triggered.
The second way to get the free spins is through the scatter symbols, with three required to get you the feature. You can win 8 free spins this way, or 16 if you got the Hot Zones occupied at the same time. For the free spins on casino sites, the wild gets the capability to expand on reel 3 and to apply a 2x multiplier to wins.
Theme & Design
The dream date that’s at the center of the story is going to take place in a setting of your choice. You can go with the historical setting, something out of a Jane Austen novel, or you can get the present day modern city. There are four dates to choose from in each case. The graphics are acceptable, a bit cheesy, but that’s to be expected of a romance themed game.
Dream Date Conclusion
Overall, it’s not the most original game from Microgaming, but it should have its own audience that will love it, and that’s what is important. I certainly enjoyed the 1,800x stake payout that is possible inside.
