Indian Dreaming iPad Slots Quick Start Guide
This iconic game is based around the deep culture and mythology of Native American residents. One of the very first things that you will notice is the amazing artwork used in the game. The graphics are dated by today’s standards that’s for sure, but the quality of the imagery really speaks for itself even to this day. The game has bright symbols depicting the Indian theme perfectly as only Aristocrat can do so well.
You will see symbols like tepee tents, squaws, tomahawks, buffalos, totem poles and the of course the big Indian chief himself, he is the one to be looking out for during the game play for some nice big pay-outs. Punters will need to watch for the tepees as they act as the wild symbols on the reels, keep in mind that they are devoid of multipliers but will certainly appreciate them landing on your reels in this 243-ways-to-win slot.
The scatters are very important to racking up some nice pays and these are represented by the dream catchers. You can score up to 20 free bonus spins, for landing five of them anywhere on the reels. But it gets good here as you can win 3x to 15x multipliers bonuses and these are won at random to your wins during the free spin’s bonus.
But wait there’s more! The awesome news is that you can re-trigger the free spins if you get another 3, 4, or 5 scatters that will give you another 10, 15, or 20 mates rates free spins.

Audio in the Indian Dreaming slot
The cracker audio sounds on the MKV versions of the Indian Dreaming pokie are three sounds in one which is an Indian dance, drums and an awesome buffalo horn which was the high-pitched sound. The Later version slot machines only played the Indian dance, the drums or just the regular Aristocrat “wake the dead” feature bell – how cool were these sounds when you had a big win, nothing like that noisy bell to wake you up 😊
Indian Dreaming vs Dream Catcher
Building on the roaring success of the Indian Dreaming slot released in 1998 the Dream Catcher pokies machine was released a few years later in 2002. This was a super-duper enhanced version of the game that punters just could not get enough of.
It had a very similar feel when playing plus a skull, mask and drum symbols were included in this game just to mix things up a little. The Dream Catcher game was branded a Reel Power slot, but Indian dreaming already had the 243 ways to win system anyway, so this was nothing new but a clever branding feature none the less.
But a cool feature that was introduced into Dream Catcher which was the super reel power feature, this added a full row on the top and to the bottom of the pokie reels. Then you had 5 positions on each reel, so you received a whopping 3,125 different ways of winning some big pay-outs on this pokies machine.

Big Bonus Win on Jackpot Catcher Slot Machine
The main differences between Jackpot Catcher and Indian Dreaming is when playing the bonus feature symbols change to either the colour purple or colour red. If your score any of them during a bonus spin a mighty eagle will fly and the feathers might just land on a random reel symbol.
Note if they land on the dream catcher bonus symbol or on the wild you will win a progressive jackpot. Red bonus symbols will award you the big jackpot and the purple will award you the minor jackpot as you will see in the cracker video above.
