One of the first big wheels live!
Dream Catcher is one of the first live games to feature a big wheel. Published in May 2017 by the Evolution Gaming Group, a master in the field of live casino games, Dream Catcher works like a classic wheel of fortune, 24/7.
A large colorful wheel is placed in the center of a room similar to a TV game board, with background music and a pure decor reminiscent of the world of the fairground. Several camera shots are proposed for more dynamism. A presenter turns the wheel and animates the game all the time. More than just a dealer, he entertains and answers players' questions.
54 segments make up the big wheel with 6 different numbers (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40) and two multiplying bonus segments (x2 and x7) arranged in a more or less recurring way according to their multiplier.
The principle of the game
The giant wheel is launched by the animator before stopping on one of the 54 segments composed of numbers or multiplier bonuses. The objective is simple for the spectator: guess the next segment to fall by betting on the different numbers at the bottom of the screen. 6 choices are offered to the player, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40. Each number corresponds to an identical multiplier (1=x1, 2=x2 ...).
If the wheel stops on one of the numbers chosen by the player, then the corresponding bet will be multiplied by the number in question. Logically, the higher the multipliers, the rarer they are on the grid. Thus, the chance is total, with frequent but highly variable payouts.
The distribution of multiplier numbers
On the 54 segments, we find once each the so-called bonus multiplier boxes, the x2 and the x7. There is also :
23 times the number 1 (in yellow), the least remunerative because the bet is multiplied only by 1
15 times the number 2 (in blue) with a bet multiplied by 2
7 times the number 5 (in purple) with a bet multiplied by 5
4 times the number 10 (in green) with a bet multiplied by 10
2 times the number 20 (in orange) with a bet multiplied by 20
1 time the number 40 (in red), the rarest with a bet multiplied by 40
The X2 and X7 bonuses
Two segments are different from the others and do not contain a number but a "bonus" or rather a multiplicative value: Multiplier x2 and Multiplier x7.
When the wheel stops on one of these two segments, it multiplies the winnings by 2 or 7 of the set of numbers. Thus, the wheel is restarted and the next designated number will have its multiplier value changed.
Let's take an example: the wheel stops on the x7 multiplier then the next number is 5. 5x7=35 so the winning bet will be multiplied by 35.
If the wheel falls on a multiplier, all the numbers are again multiplied by 7.
For example, if the x7 multiplier falls twice and the next number is 5: 5x7x7 = 245 then the winning bet will be multiplied by 245.
It is these multipliers that make the machine extremely volatile and the gains potentially huge.
The RTP of this wheel
The payout rate to the player (also called RTP for Return To Player) is 96.58%, which is very close to a traditional roulette wheel. The table below shows the RTP according to the different numbers.
Is it possible to play Dream Catcher on mobile?
It is of course possible to play Dream Catcher from a mobile device. Available in many online casinos, this live game is perfectly adapted to the format of smartphones and tablets. Like all Evolution Gaming games, Dream Catcher has been designed to be accessible by everyone and everywhere.
Our opinion about Dream Catcher
A classic wheel of fortune, a simple and effective principle that can be very profitable: on paper, the Dream Catcher game has something to delight fans of live games. Its dynamic display, playful presenters and constant earnings will find many fans. But since the release of its big brother Crazy Time, Dream Catcher is already an outdated ancestor with its two lone multiplier segments as the only bonuses.
