Neko Night: Dream Drop Review
After journeying to temples in Temple Tumble 2 and fighting Vikings in Volatile Vikings 2, Relax Gaming decided it was time to try to luck of the cat in Neko Night: Dream Drop. In East Asian culture, felines are considered lucky and are often placed everywhere.
This oriental slot embodies many lucky tropes from East Asia with darumas and cranes as well as a neo-Tokyo look to make the slot stand out even more. In terms of the gameplay, players will be delighted to find free spins, respins and even the Dream Drop Jackpot leading to unbelievable wins.
As the slot opens up, there is a cute anime-style animation with a cute cat rummaging around to get a fish whilst its owner is helplessly chasing it. The transitions even include strips to replicate a manga to enhance the oriental theme.
When the main game starts, players will find themselves in a street in presumably Tokyo with hiragana, katana and kanji symbols everywhere as well as bright neon lights and big buildings. There is even mist throughout the reels to create a more mystical tone for the slot.
All the symbols on the reels relate to the slot with sushi, origami, daruma, saki and even the anime girl from the start. The music is quite ethereal with woodwind instruments paired with synth sounds that is a delight to listen to. It's not too overwhelming and finds the perfect mixture.
In the base game, respins can be triggered with multipliers as well as the free spins round. There is also a random chance for the Dream Drop to showcase a huge variety of features available to keep players entertained.
At the bottom of the screen, there is the menu bar with the spin button as well as the bet level. Players looking for the free spins bonus buy will find it at the top left of the screen and it looks like it's built into the game. However, this is only available outside of the UK.
Neko Night: Dream Drop definitely has a lot going for it in terms of the win potential. Firstly, this high volatility slot contains a maximum base game win of 20,000x the stake which is brilliant for an ordinary slot, let alone a jackpot one.
The RTP is under the average level of 96% as it is 93.89% but this is expected for a progressive jackpot slot. There is also the grandiose Dream Drop Jackpot that is triggered on a random spin and can lead to the Rapid, Midi, Maxi, Major and Mega Jackpots with the biggest one seeded at €500,000.
This slot showcases exactly what we expect with a Relax Gaming slot. The imagery and design are of a high quality that you cannot help but appreciate - especially with the opening animation.
As for the gameplay, this game could've just relied on the Dream Drop Jackpot but includes multipliers, respins and free spins making the game genuinely exciting to play. Overall, Neko Night: Dream Drop is a complete knock-out and will appeal to both jackpot hunters and fans of masterful slots.
