Ocean Dreams Slots

Ocean-Dreams-slotOcean Dreams has the kind of theme that will make you want to leave everything behind and head on to a tropical island, or to travel the world for years while working from a beach. To put it differently, it is a slot machine from RTG that is themed around ocean life and beautiful tropical islands with palm trees, gorgeous views of the sunset and offering the kind of experience you would want for your holidays.

The game has 5 reels, with a total of 25 lines on them and with progressive jackpots available. The real prize seems to be the game’s own $200,000 though, which is considerably better than what the progressives could offer you. Even the features are considered very good here, so you can play and enjoy the help from the scatter or the wilds, while bonus rounds will give you free games and multipliers.

Features of Ocean Dreams

They’ve made sure that this slot is the type that will not just be happy serving you the same tired features, freshening them up a bit and giving you a chance at better prizes and exciting action. They have two types of wilds which help out with that part.

The game’s two wilds are both represented by Orca symbols, where one is a regular, while the other is a Gold Orca. The regular Orca is capable of substituting for the regular symbols, and it can’t take the place of a Gold Orca or that of a scatter Island. Getting one of these symbols, no matter in what position, will give you a prize worth 2 coins. However, if they form combinations on the same line, you can get up to 10,000 coins from five of them. If the Gold Orca contributes to that combo, you get 20,000 coins instead.

The second wild, a Gold Orca symbol, will be limited to appearances on the 3rd reel. This type of wild is a bit better than the regular Orca, as it offers a 2x multipliers for its prizes, plus it can substitute for Orca symbols. It can’t take the place of a scatter either though. This is also the symbol that will bring you a $200,000 payout during the feature round (40,000 coins).

Represented by a tropical island picture that looks incredibly appealing, the scatter symbol is going to give you prizes whenever multiple symbols of this type are around during the same spin. The scatter ability allows it to do that without being required to have all those symbols on the same line. Prizes start at 1x the bet value if there are only two scatters, and then grow and end up at 500x if there are five.


Free Games Feature

Besides being incredibly generous with the scatter prizes, the game also awards a huge number of free games. You do need all five scatter symbols, if you want to get the maximum number of 100 free spins, while four scatters will deliver 25 spins and three scatters will bring you 10 spins for free.

On top of that, you will find that a 2x multiplier is available during free games, and that the Orca symbol becomes a Gold Orca for their duration. Getting five Gold Orca wilds on a line during free spins can get you a 40,000 coins prize ($200,000). That’s one of the biggest prizes that a Realtime Gaming title has to offer, without it being a progressive.

There is a catch unfortunately, but I might just be able to let it go, since the game is so generous with the number of games, multipliers and the jackpot size. Scatter symbols need to appear on consecutive reels, starting either from the Right, or the Left. It’s not a true scatter since there are some limitations on the place where they have to appear, but at least they can start either from the 1st or the 5th reel.

Betting options and jackpots

You don’t have a lot to worry about when it comes to betting options. You get the choice to select as many bet lines as you like (1-25), plus the coin value that you’re comfortable with ($0.01 – $5). If you decide you want to get as much money from this game as possible, the maximum bet is at $125.

The top jackpot value depends on whether you’re in the base game, or the feature round. In the base game, a combo of four Orca wilds with one Gold Orca will get you up to $100,000. During the free spins, five Gold Orca wilds can award a $200,000 payout.

You will notice the two progressive jackpots advertised, Major and Minor, but they’re not truly part of the game. These payouts are awarded at the end of a spin, randomly.

Design and symbols

Ocean Dreams has a gorgeous design, truly the stuff that dreams are made of. It’s colorful, the image shows us the beach and the ocean at sunset, there are lots of marine creatures on its reels and the island presented could be a great place to spend a vacation. Though it incorporates playing cards as well, they at least made an effort of fitting in, by placing some sea weed around the letters.

Symbols: Orca (wild, 10,000x), Gold Orca (wild, 40,000x), Island (scatter, 500x the bet), Fish (1,000x), Seahorse (750x), Sea Shell (250x), Crab (250x), Ace/King (150x), Queen/Jack (125x), Ten/Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you’re not on a beach somewhere, sipping cocktails and enjoying yourself, then yes, play this game at least and get a taste of how your next holiday could be like. The payouts are another great reason to play it, with the $200,000 available here being one of the best prizes that RTG has to offer.

Ocean Dreams can be found at any RTG casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
