An esoteric slot that claims to be a state beyond time and place? Elk Studios has made a bold statement for their creation, promising to take us on a reel journey through infinite space. The visuals are built to convey that feeling with an endless loop of illuminated geometric formations giving players the impression they travel through limitless space and mind. A soothing EDM track adds to the atmosphere while gem icons float onto the frameless game grid.
The pay symbols are all gems in a variety of shapes and colours. The smaller ones in purple, blue, green, orange and red are at the low end of the paytable, awarding 4.8x to 6x your bet for clusters of 11 or more symbols. They are complemented by more elaborate gem icons in the same colours and surrounded in a geometrical frame. Hit clusters of minimum 11 symbols to win 20x to 100x your stake. There are no scatters on the reels and the wild will appear only via one of the four modifiers.
Dreamzone Slot Features
The bold statement from Elk Studio surely caught our attention as we were eagerly awaiting the reveal of the slot creation that would follow their space-themed Io slot. It turned out to be something completely different, although after a few hours in the Dreamzone I am not sure whether this is a journey many players will be as eager to embark on. However, the game has its moments, so let’s get through them.
Core to the gameplay is the Avalanche mechanic that drops 25 symbols onto the 5×5 grid at the start of a spin sequence. Your aim will be to clear the grid and ascend into the realms of the Bonus Game. Land three or more matching symbols horizontally and/or vertically connected and you have a winner. All symbols that are part of a combo are removed and the remainder drops towards the bottom. Hit another winner and the process is repeated until now new winning clusters appear.
While transcending through the infinite space, keep an eye to the side of the window where up to five purple swirls can appear. Each winning combo within one spin will add one swirl, up to five in a single spin sequence. The swirls represent the Dream Features that will activate consecutively in a random order once no more winning clusters occur.
- Wilds: Adds up to five wilds to random empty grid positions or by transforming an existing symbol into a wild.
- Symbol Explode: Removes up to four single symbols
- Symbol Upgrade: Turns a low-value symbol into its corresponding premium symbol.
- Symbol Scatter: One random symbol is selected to pay scattered.
A single winning cluster will get you already one Dream Feature. Up to five can stack up in a single spin sequence and trigger consecutively. However, once applied, any wins occurring from the modifier will not count towards the feature collection. For example, if wilds are added and lead to a winning cluster, it will not award a Dream feature for the win.
Clearing the grid will trigger the Bonus Game. You will initially get three Bonus Drops with a x2 multiplier and you will need to clear the grid in one of the three rounds to advance to the next level. The win multiplier will be doubled for each level to x4, x8, and so on up to the maximum of x512. Every time you retrigger the feature, you will get another three bonus drops. Failure to clear the grid within three drops will end the bonus game.
Dreamzone is not your ordinary grid slot but neither is it reinventing the wheel. Surely, the gameplay is fast-paced and the constant Dream feature triggers convey a state of infinite action but one must question the wisdom to limit the win potential to 2,500x bet. A cluster with 11+ top symbols pays 100x stake and multiplying that with the max x512 in the bonus game would get you a payout of over 50,000x. Knowing the limit, one has to ask whether the bonus game is tweaked or predetermined to avoid such an event. If not, then it will be an extremely frustrating moment to have such a hit in a session only to see most of the winnings vanish due to the cap.
