Synot Games has been a very productive iGaming software company in recent years, best known for slots based on treasure hunts, fairy-tale characters, jokers, and above all – fruits. With its latest (for now) title, the provider has decided to sweeten the experience of casino players by opening a kind of online candy factory for them.
Sweet Dream is a cluster slot with a 7×5 grid and an RTP ranging from 85.00% to 98.00%. Since the title allows for placing bets from $0.10 to $200, it can appeal to both recreational and high-roller players. The Sweet Dream medium-high volatility level means that winning while spinning the reels would be quite a difficult task. At the same time, it serves to show that you can enjoy moderate to large payouts.
Sweet Dream Theme, Graphics, and Sounds
All other things being equal, theme and atmosphere are the factors that make gambling enthusiasts prefer one slot over another. If you аre a sugar addict whose eyes light up at the mere mention of candy or a frosted cookie, then you have come to the right place. Synot Games once again impresses with stunning graphics that will make you drool while looking at the tasty treats on the reels. There is almost no chocolate to be found, but we tend to turn a blind eye to this trifle because everything else is so tempting.
In terms of the soundtrack, there is nothing unique to distinguish – just pleasant music, the tempo of which quickens when a winning cluster appears or a bonus feature is activated. Players can set three different volume levels as well as mute all sounds.
Sweet Dream Symbols and Payouts
We could compare the background of the slot to a fairy tale city where the buildings are not houses or skyscrapers, but huge cakes with frosting and all sorts of other decorations. The reels are a veritable feast for the senses, allowing you to virtually munch on all sorts of goodies while also putting a few bucks (or more) in your pocket.
As Sweet Dream is a cluster slot, we are not going to talk about paylines and 5-fold combos, for example, but for paying quantities. The more the better. All regular symbols give rewards for landing identical icons in four number levels: 10-13, 14-15, 16-10, and 20+. If you manage to hit 20 or more Tasty Sevens, you will benefit from the highest base game stake multiplier – 36x. The remaining payouts of this most valuable symbol are 16, 8, and 4 times the wagered amount.
A bell-shaped cookie is next in power as it is capable of multiplying your bet between 2 and 18 times. A candy cane and a purple lollipop are Sweet Dream’s mid-tier reel icons. The two come with the same multipliers, namely 1x, 2x, 4x, and 12x. The low-paying symbols in this game are many children’s favorite jelly candies. They are for types corresponding to the four card signs – clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. The payouts vary between 0.2 and 4 times the stake.
Sweet Dream Bonus Mechanics
The Sweet Dream slot features no wild symbol, but given its cluster type, this is not considered a major drawback. You should be aware that once a sufficient number of paying symbols appear, the corresponding award is given, and they are then automatically replaced by other icons. This means players can enjoy several wins within one base game spin, something that is considered an additional bonus feature in other online slots.
This Synot Games title features a Scatter that represents a pink-frosted donut. Eating five donuts is a challenge even for the most avid sweet fans, but landing 5 Bonus Donut symbols on the reels is a gambling blessing. Once this happens, 10 free spins will be activated. This is not a retriggerable feature which is a bit disappointing. On the other hand, every Bonus Symbol above the required minimum quantity increases the number of re-spins by 1.
Do you like tartlets? You will love them even more when we tell you that they play the role of Extra Scatter multipliers that can lead to a lucrative Free Spin payout. If such a symbol appears, it will stick to its position till the end of the respective tumble series. When there are no more winning clusters, the tartlets explode, removing all regular symbols and making space for other icons to appear. When no new clusters and Extra Scatters show up, the tumble sequence ends and the accumulated wins are multiplied by the summed multipliers.
Sweet Dream gives players the chance to double every spin win that is not above $125,000. This can be carried out via a Gamble Feature where you have to guess the card color. The respective amount can be risked until a wrong guess is made or the 10-time limit is reached. As with other Synot Games slots, you can gamble just half of the amount and keep the other half in your balance. Activating the free spins in Sweet Dream can be a tough task, so it is great that you can buy the feature for 80x your total bet.
We have to admit, we just fell in love with Sweet Dream’s cute design and became passionate fans of the slot. It is neither innovative nor has the largest jackpot on the market, but the game elements are so well-balanced that you will undoubtedly enjoy playing it. Donuts may be bad for your diet but as Scatters, they are your bankroll’s best friend together with the tartlet Multipliers. The inclusion of the cluster mechanic only adds to the game’s enjoyment. In our humble opinion, Sweet Dream will enter the gaming libraries of lots of online casinos, very soon.
