Evolution Gaming launched the Dream Catcher game online at the ICE industry gaming event in 2017. The game was the first in the brand-new Money Wheel game category offered by the live gaming specialist. Prior to the game’s release, table games reigned supreme at live casinos. The developer created Dream Catcher to cater to casino, slots and bingo players that do not usually play table games, and therefore, don’t play at live casinos.
The game features a super-sized, vertically mounted wheel containing 54 coloured segments. 52 of these segments contain different numbers, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40. There are also two multiplier segments on the wheel, x2 and x7. Players bet on which number they think the wheel will land on. The game is streamed in up to HD quality from a specialised studio in Riga. Multiple camera angles and close-ups help build the excitement making for an immersive playing atmosphere. The studio has a gameshow vibe with bright colours, flashing lights and punchy sound effects. The game is hosted by enthusiastic and lively dealers. They keep the energy high, chatting with players as the game plays.
Playing Dream Catcher is incredibly simple. To play, you place a bet on the number you think the wheel will stop at. The dealer then spins the wheel. When the wheel stops, the winning segment is indicated by the leather pointer at the top of the wheel. Any bets placed on the winning number will be paid out at their respective odds.
Any bets placed must be within the table limits, which are clearly displayed on the screen. A traffic light system will indicate when you can place bets (green), when betting time is nearly over (amber) and when no further bets can be placed for the current round (red).
To place a bet, you select the value of the chip you would like to bet. Once you have selected your chip, you place the bet by simply clicking on your chosen number on the betting spot that sits in front of the wheel. You can increase your bet with each additional click. Players can bet on between 1 and all 6 betting spots. There is also a BET ON ALL button which allows you to quickly place a bet covering all bet spots.
Once betting is closed, the dealer spins the wheel. After the winning number is determined and all winning bets paid out, betting opens for the following game round. You will have then have the option to repeat the previous bet, double the bet, or place a new bet.
