Time-travelling romance is the theme of this online slot machine from Microgaming which offers players the chance to spin the reels in two different eras; it’s called Dream Date so get ready to pick your ideal partner for this adventure.
Dream Date is a five reel slot with three rows and 243 ways to win which means that wins are formed just be having matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from the left hand side. Depending on which era you choose to exist in, the backdrop will feature a modern cityscape or a wooded glade; make this change in the top left hand corner and select your date in the top right (we’ll explain why this is important shortly).
The five higher value symbols are different in each era and are as follows:
- Historic – the girl, pirate, gladiator, archer and swordsman.
- Modern – the girl, spy, fireman, biker and pool cleaner(!).
Playing card symbols represent the lower values and are the same in each era.
The Dream Date logo is wild and will replace all others to form winning combos except for the book scatter and any Hot Zone symbols.
Picking Your Dream Date
When you start the game and each time you change the era you’ll have to select from one of the chaps – he will become the highest paying symbol.
There are Hot Zones in the center of reels one and five and they are triggered if the following happens:
- The girl lands in one and one of the chaps lands in the other – total bet multiplier of up to 40x.
- The girl lands in one and your chosen Dream Date lands in the other – the total bet multiplier + eight free spins (see below).
Scatter Free Spins
More free spins are available if you can land three or more of the book scatter symbols anywhere in view; you’ll receive eight free spins on a set of reels in which a wild on reel three will expand to fill all positions and double any wins to which to contributes. It’s not possible to trigger any more spins from within this round.
The graphics in Dream Date are a little on the basic side but the ability to select the time zone is nicely done, if not ground breaking. It’s certainly worth a few spins and it comes with an RTP of 96.45%.
