Soothing Music, Multiple Features on Rainforest Dream
australiangambling.net.au – Relaxing New Age music in the background and the vista of a stunning waterfall tumbling into a river as it winds through the trees, while a halcyon blue sky hangs overhead, make an upbeat frame for Rainforest Dream’s plain black reels and jewel-bright icons. Developers WMS Gaming say that this video slots title is themed on an ancient legend, and judging by the South American flora and fauna and the decidedly Caucasian-looking buckskin-clad Princess with the Polynesian face tattoo wearing an African violet in her hair, it’s a dreamy legend indeed.
The icons might be a grab bag of tropical symbols, but they are rendered with typical WMS attention to detail and 3D realism. Beautiful symbol graphics and animations accompany the game’s many special features, so Rainforest Dream’s five reels, four rows and 40 paylines can deliver more exciting wins than its simple standard layout would suggest.
Lightning Wilds in the Monsoon Feature
The Monsoon Feature is triggered randomly during Rainforest Dream base play; before a spin starts, a quick thundershower will sweep across the rain forest and the reels. This is followed by a random number of lightning flashes that hit individual windows on the reels, turning them into Wilds able to substitute for any other symbols except the Bonus icon. Once the random lightning ceases, the Wilds stick in place and the spin ensues.
Add a Big Bet at Any Time
It can take long periods of play in Rainforest Dream to hit streaks of the really impressive bonus features; so most players will be playing with fairly modest bets on the 40 paylines. But the game screen includes a red Big Bet button on the bottom left, which players can use at any time, allowing them to pay up to 30.00 in the chosen currency for up to 5 spins. These 5 spins take place at a better RTP, so players stand a chance of getting bigger wins during the round.
Stacked and Sticky Wilds Trigger More Prizes
The Rainforest Dream Wild, the aforementioned Princess, appears head-and-shoulders in the single-window icon, but on Reel 1, she can also expand to a full-length Stacked Wild that covers two or more windows on the reel. A Stacked Wild that covers all four windows on Reel 1 activates the Princess Feature, and the Stacked Wild is duplicated on one or two of the other reels. Stacked Wilds thus produce better prizes per spin in basic play.
During free spins rounds, one of the WMS innovations to ensure better wins kicks in; the guaranteed win. If a free spin results in no win, the player gets re-spins until at least one winning payline results. In addition, any Wilds that end up part of winning paylines during a Big Bet round, will stick in place for the next spin. This, combined with the Monsoon features available on mobile casino during Big Bet rounds, can deliver several Wilds on one spin, with multiple winning paylines.
Flowery Bonus Icon Tops Forest Symbols
Rainforest Dream avoids the Poker symbols, instead using a purple flower, a red flower, a pink flower, a beetle, a frog, a toucan, a snake, a monkey and a panther as its basic symbols, valued lowest to highest. Five matching panthers win 500 coins, and five Wilds, 2,000. The Bonus icon, a glade of flowers, appears only on Reels 1, 3 and 5. Three are needed to trigger a Bonus Round of 8 free spins.
