Snake's Gold Dream Drop Review
One of the first decisions you need to make is whether or not you are prepared to take the hit in RTP to have a chance of landing a huge Dream Drop Jackpot. Personally, I would go for it as it adds an extra layer that you just can't get from regular slots. After that, the gameplay is exactly the same, regardless of which version you pick up, so we can all enjoy the same adventure with slightly different payout potential.
I don't have any geographical literature to go on, so I'll have to go with my gut on this one. I'm going to say some sort of Aztec influence is pushing behind the scenes as it seems quite familiar with many other slot providers going down this route. Either way, you find yourself in the jungle with very stereotypical tribal sounds playing out in the background. The animation is crisp and I didn't have any complaints at all with the overall design. Not out of this world but decent nonetheless.
There isn't a hell of a lot going on in Snake's Gold—you’re simply spinning along and waiting for DD symbols to land during the base game. It's a very basic setup and is most likely to appeal to those looking for huge payouts. This is just another reason why sourcing the non-jackpot version might not be advisable. The free spins are fun and having the sticky Wild reels offers a welcome improvement to your bankroll as you play.
You will need to keep a close eye on your balance during this game as the high volatility will make you wait patiently for wins. Admittedly, those wins can be pretty special when they do occur. Only 5,000x can appear as the max win for the regular version of this game but the Dream Drop Jackpot can push this into the millions. This version has an RTP of 94% and you can expect a hit frequency of 21.42%.
It is pretty basic but Snake's Gold does have a lot to offer in some respects. The sticky Wild reels during the Free Spins Bonus is an extremely potent addition and of course, the jackpot game can produce payouts beyond our wildest dreams. A few extra modifiers would have been nice; however, it is a fairly well-rounded game even though it focuses mainly on the payouts.
