About Dreams of Macau Slot
Macau is also known as Las Vegas of the East, and you in this slot you can experience the extravagant life of rich gamblers looking for the expensive reels in a more exotic version of the City of Sin in Nevada. A lovely lady will be your host in this exclusive casino where the reels are set, and you will be surrounded by loads of slot machines as you play the game.
The reel grid is set against the backdrop of a packed casino floor and an engaging soundtrack will get you in a proper reel-spinning mood as you wait for the exciting features to be triggered. It’s as close as you can get to a real life slots casino experience without actually leaving your home, or wherever you happen to be sat with your mobile phone!
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
Dreams of Macau is a medium variance video slot which means that your payouts will be distributed fairly evenly. Don’t expect those mad runs of extremely high payouts that you get in the crazy Megaways™ games or classics like Dead or Alive. But still, with an RTP of 96.71% and a top payout of 10,000x this is an inviting reel set to start spinning on. Bets start from 20p per spin so casual slots players can enjoy this as much as the high rollers out there.
Symbols and Paytable
Like in most other video slots, low value symbols are represented by playing cards, from 10 to ace, and they will deliver between 4x and 10x bet for six of a kind. Meanwhile, the premiums are represented by iconic casino items like chips, dice, suitcases with money, expensive watches, luxury cars, and, of course, lovely ladies! All these deliver from 15x to 80x bet for the maximum combination. Look out as well for the Wild which is there to substitute for all regular symbols to form wins, and the diamond is the Scatter that is required to trigger the Free Spins round.
Gameplay and Features
There are three additional features on the offer in this slot, and all of them combined could result in tasty wins. Most will be familiar to you already, mixing cascading wins, free spins and multipliers to good effect. Here is how they function:
Cascading Reels Feature
Cascading Reels or Avalanche is quite a common feature in video slots, first made famous in Gonzo’s Quest and now used throughout the Megaways games. Every time you land a winning spin, the winning symbols will be destroyed and new ones fill the vacant positions. Cascading reels continue until there are no more new winning combinations.
Sticky Wilds-On-The-Way Feature
When some symbols land on the reels, they do so with a silver or a golden frame around them. Those with a silver frame that also form part of the winning combination stick on the reels before transforming into another symbol, this time with a Golden Frame. If, in the next cascade, the symbol with a golden frame is once again involved in a winning combination, then this time it is turned into a sticky Wild. Now, above the new Wild, there will be a number displayed, and this number represents how many winning cascades the Wild will remain on the reels for.
Essentially this is a simple variation on the Sticky Wilds mechanic found in a lot of other slots. In this instance, a new variable is added to the gameplay that determines how long the symbols remains sticky for. Note as well that if the Golden Frame symbol not a part of the winning combination then it is instantly removed from the reels.
Free Spins Feature
Once at least four diamond Scatters appear on the reels at the same time, the Free Spins feature is triggered and 15 free spins are credited. Every extra triggering Scatter will secure you 2 additional free spins. During the feature, Cascading Reels come with a progressive win multiplier, which starts at 1x and goes up 1x after each winning spin. Again, fans of Megaways™ slots will be familiar with this set up. It opens up this game to having some pretty fun win sequences where the cascades keep dropping and the multiplier keeps going up!
Dreams of Macau shows that not all the fun is happening in Las Vegas, and that the gambling capital of the East can be a tempting destination for gamblers too! This slot looks fantastic and really evokes the atmosphere of a real casino floor. Then those three features, and in particular the bonus round, have the potential to make things really interesting by adding progressive components to the basic gameplay and keep driving up wins. The Sticky Wilds have the potential to enhance your wins but the best stuff will surely happen in the bonus round with progressive multipliers being your best bet to get you anywhere near that 10,000x top payout.
