Neko Night Dream Drop Slot Review 2022
These adorable felines will be waving good fortune your way right from the start in Relax Gaming’s latest addition to their Dream Drop series, Neko Night Dream Drop!
Neko Night takes us to Japan in one of Relax Gaming’s newest additions to feature their Dream Drop Mechanic.
Of late, we’ve seen a fair few new slots with the new and exciting Jackpot mechanic, but a fair few of them have been older games with a new Jackpot integration. An entirely brand-new slot is always exciting, and we must say, we’re a sucker for the eastern theme.
There’s something enchanting about the Japanese culture, and something beautiful about the aesthetic that goes with it.
Relax Gaming are experts in the artistic regard, and they’re even more adept when it comes to gameplay, so let’s check it out and experience Neko Night for ourselves.
Neko Night Dream Drop Base Game and Features
Neko Night Dream Drop is a 5 reel slot with 1,024 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol type land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Neko Night Dream Drop has a theoretical RTP of 93.89% and a maximum win capacity of 20,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Neko Night Dream Drop is the Girl, followed by the Daruma Doll, Bread, Bottle and Origami. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all High and Low-paying symbols.
Sat atop the reel set is 3 Chinese Waving Cats, each with their own x1 Multiplier. Whenever a Fish Wild lands on reels 2, 3 or 4, the Neko Respin feature is automatically triggered.
Landing a Wild symbol upgrades any additional Wilds that may land on the same reel by increasing their Multiplier by +1. Neko Respins will continue as long as Wild symbols land on the reels during this feature.
At the end of the Neko Respin feature, all current Multiplier values are reset back to x1.
During any random spin in the base game, the Dream Drop logo can turn Gold and the Jackpot Spin feature is awarded.
Once active, the Jackpot Spin is played out before the regular base game spin, with only blank and Neko DD symbols in play. Landing 1 DD symbol on each of the 5 reels automatically triggers the Dream Drop Bonus round.
Dream Drop Bonus
Once the Dream Drop Bonus is awarded, Jackpot prizes Rapid, Midi, Maxi, Major and Mega can be won. During the Dream Drop Bonus there is only Koi DD symbols and blank spaces present on the reel set.
The 5 Jackpot Prizes each have their own reel with a waving cat sat above. A certain number of Koi DD symbols need to land on the reels in order to win the corresponding Jackpot Prize.
- Rapid – 2 Koi DD symbols needed.
- Midi – 3 Koi DD symbols needed.
- Maxi – 4 Koi DD symbols needed.
- Major – 5 Koi DD symbols needed.
- Mega – 6 Koi DD symbols needed.
Once you have enough Koi DD symbols for any of the above Jackpot amounts, the corresponding Jackpot Prize is awarded and the Dream Drop Bonus ends.
Neko Night Dream Drop Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatter symbols in any position on the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 8 Free Spins plus an extra +1 Free Spin for every Scatter after this.
During Free Spins, the Neko Respin feature is active and the Wild Multiplier values do not reset between spins. If the Free Spins round is triggered during the Neko Respin feature, all current Multipliers will be transferred over to Free Spins.
Neko Night Dream Drop: Our Verdict
Neko Night gives you a sense of serenity that you’ll only get from a chilled, asian-themed slot, but you’ll get a whole lot more too.
Compelling game mechanics, Free Spins and a Jackpot chance will make Neko Night a compelling choice for those looking for diversity within a game, and its statistics back it up as a very viable option to those looking for potential as well.
Before the Dream Drop Mechanic even comes into play, Neko Night is capable of up to 20,000x on its own. Very few will see a win of this magnitude (obviously), but rest assured that Neko Night is still very competent, and as exciting as you’d expect a Relax Gaming Slot to be.
Well, it’s not the most exciting slot that Relax Gaming has ever spawned, but that’s more of a testament to their other brilliant slots than it is a dig at Neko Night Dream Drop.
Overall, if you’re a jackpot chaser, but you want something that can stand it’s own ground too, then Neko Night might not be a bad choice at all.
