Sunset Dreams Slots

Sunset-DreamsSunset Dreams is your typical tropical themed game, which IGT offers in the casinos they power. These holiday inspired games have been quite popular for some time now, and you will find that they’re easy to locate in the collection of slots that any developer puts out. Based on a quick first impression, it’s a very normal/average game of this type, both when it comes to graphics and features.

The game will give you 20 lines to work with, and as usual they will be arranged on 5 reels. There will be some features as well, and I’m a fan of the free games especially since they have a multiplier, but scatters and wilds also are present (the latter also with a multiplier). The big prize in this case is at 5,000 coins, or $2,000.

Features of Sunset Dreams

The Sunset Dreams features offer the player wilds with multipliers, a scatter symbol and free spins which double their wins. There is nothing surprising about this list, but nobody expects for all games to innovate.

Getting the Heart symbol on the reels will mean that you’ve just landed a wild feature. This symbol can be quite useful, as long as it lands where it is needed, part of a payline which has the other symbols of the same type. Wilds only come in on the 1st and 5th reels, so they’re not as useful here as they are in other slots. However, they do double a prize when it’s awarded thanks to their contribution. You should also keep in mind that a Heart wild is of no use to you when the scatter symbols are involved.

Speaking of the scatter symbol, the Dolphin is the one that takes the role in this game. Given the power that it has, the Dolphin can offer you prizes of 1x to 200x the slot’s bet when you have between two and five such symbols present, no matter what their position is on the reels.

Free Games Feature

To get the slot’s 20 free spins, as well as the 2x multiplier which all wins will benefit from, you need for both Heart wilds to appear at the same time, one on the 5th reel, the other on the 1st.

Retriggering these free spins is a possibility, which requires you to get the wild on both reels once again.

Betting options and jackpots

For the 20 lines of the game the bets require that an equal number of coins be used. Each of those 20 coins has a value that you decide, but it can’t be outside the range of $0.01 to $0.40. A bet of up to $8 is possible in the game.

The big prize in Sunset Dreams will bring you 5,000 coins, which thanks to the small denominations used by the game will be worth at most $2,000.

Design and symbols

The obvious appeal of a tropical island inspired game comes from most people dream of sitting on the beach, sipping cocktails and enjoying the sun and the beauty of such a place. The design does an adequate job at showing off this beautiful place, but as usual the designers chose to include a set of playing cards among the symbols, and it could’ve been so much better without them.


Symbols: Heart (wild, 2 coins), Dolphin (scatter, 200x the bet), Ocean View (5,000 coins), Cruise Ship (2,500 coins), Coconut Cocktail (1,000 coins), Palm Tree (1,000 coins), Ace (500 coins), King (500 coins), Queen (250 coins), Jack (250 coins), 10 (200 coins) and 9 (200 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I didn’t find anything truly special in this game. It’s average in some ways, a solid choice in others, but it doesn’t stand out. It’s also a game for players with lower budgets, and so the payout potential is not huge either.

You will find Sunset Dreams at any online casino which chooses to use software from IGT, playable either for free or for real money.
