If you fancy trying something different to the usual slots, but aren't keen on table games such as blackjack, then Mecca Bingo's latest addition may appeal. It's called Dream Catcher and it's a live 'Spin The Wheel' game that involves a real person spinning the wheel and interacting with players!
Dream Catcher by Evolution Gaming takes place in a studio with a live presenter spinning the wheel every minute or so. Players place bets on whether the wheel will finish on different numbered segments. The numbers are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40. These numbers represent the win multiplier you'll receive should the wheel finish on your selection. Additionally there's a x2 and x7 multiplier on the wheel and if the pointer stops on these segments then it's a respin with extra big wins.
Wheel Of Fortune
Dream Catcher is very simple to play - it's basically Wheel Of Fortune without having to answer questions - but it's made even more interesting with a live presenter. The host spins the wheel, interacts with the players and chats about various topics during the spins. As far as we're aware the studio is located in Lithuania and the game attracts players from various countries. Dream Catcher Live is not exclusive to Mecca Bingo players and it can be found at the likes of Unibet and Party Casino!
Before each spin you're invited to place your bets by clicking on the different options - you can play from as little as 10p a wager! You can place bets on all outcomes - so by wagering 60p you're guaranteed a win of between 10p and £4 (plus your stake is returned when you win). It's worth noting that low numbers make up the bulk of the segments on the money wheel so in our view the game is geared to favour small wins. Previous spin results are shown and whilst these won't effect the next result, they may influence your betting strategy.
Live Gambling Experience
Dream Catcher offers something different to those wanting to gamble online. The live presenter makes it a lot more personable than slots or bingo. Of course you don't have to engage with the presenter - and some presenters are better than others in creating interesting chat - but it does help enhance the experience.
We do feel that at times the game does feel a tad rushed as there's often only a few seconds to place your bets. This makes the interaction less fluid but we assume it's done this way to keep players engaged on playing the game rather than chatting with the hosts.
It'll be interesting to see how Dream Catcher evolves as a live gambling experience and whether we'll see more games follow this exciting path.
