Oasis Dreams Hot Drop Jackpots Review
Spin your way to a vacation in an exotic location by launching a session of Oasis Dreams — the newest Hot Drop Jackpot slot at Bodog Casino. This 5-reel, 3-row slot game takes you to the Sahara desert in Egypt, where you’ll play amidst pyramids, camels and palm trees.
If you still haven’t tried out a Hot Drop Jackpots slot game in our casino, now’s the time. These have gained lots of traction since they were released, and we’re pleased to be able to expand the roster of HDJ games to 10.
In this Oasis Dreams online slot review, we’ll go over the mechanics of the game, including design and features, in addition to explaining how the Hot Drop Jackpots work. You may find that the excitement that comes from the ticking jackpots is enough to convert you entirely to HDJ games from here on out.
Gameplay and Design
As mentioned, the game is set in the Sahara desert where palm trees gently blow in the wind and camels rest after a long ride. Overtop of a beautifully-lit temple is a starry sky with rolling clouds. On the reels, you’ll find Egyptian-themed symbols, none more significant than the Egyptian Pharaoh. After that top-rated symbol, you’ll see red rubies, magic lamps and Arabian swords.
To earn a payout, three or more matching icons must land on one of the game’s 25 paylines, beginning on the first reel and moving right. The Egyptian Pharaoh is the only game icon that pays with as few as two matches.
Betting is made easy with 10 betting options. Wager as little as $0.25 per round or as much as $125; there are eight other options in between. The pay table adjusts to reflect your current bet in regular currency, so there’s no need to mentally convert coins to dollars.
Beyond the simple spin-to-win base game, Oasis Dreams has five key features to spice things up. Watch for free spins, a treasure bonus, wilds, Hold & Spin coins and fixed jackpots—all of which create extra ways to win cash in this desert Oasis.
Landing three scatter symbols (Temple icon) awards a payout and triggers the game’s Treasure Bonus. Enter the temple and pick one of two treasure chests and collect the prize; it could be a series of free spins, or a round of Hold & Spin.
Hold & Spin can also be triggered by landing between 6 and 14 coin; this second screen bonus is all about collecting coins. Every spot on the reels becomes its own independently-moving reel, and as they spin, either coins or blanks appear. When coins appear, more spins are added to your tally, providing more opportunities to fill the entire grid with coins, which awards the Grand Jackpot. At the end of the Hold & Spin, the coins combine to give you the total prize.
A free spins session is the alternative prize that comes from the treasure bonus. You get 6, 9 or 15 free rounds with 25, 100 or 200 additional wilds. Wilds are also plentiful during the base game, where they appear on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels in stacks, substituting for standard game icons to create more wins.
Hot Drop Jackpots
All of our Hot Drop Jackpot slots work the same way. On the left side of the screen, you’ll see all three: the Hourly, Super and Daily Jackpots. These jackpots increase with every dollar bet on the game and have parameters that dictate when they must fall.
The Hourly jackpot must not exceed 60 minutes; it can drop any time before that. The Daily one must drop within a 24-hour timeframe, and the Super cannot go over $300,000. The Hourly and Daily jackpots show how much time is left on the clock and they visually heat up as they approach their limits.
The Hold & Spin feature mentioned in the “Key Features” section is the game’s second-screen bonus, and it can be accessed two different ways:
- By landing six or more coins. When it’s triggered this way, you start the bonus round with those coins.
- By landing three or more scatters to access the Treasure Chest bonus, and then picking the chest with the Hold & Spin prize.
Hold & Spin takes you to a special grid where each spot on it acts as its own independent reel. Every spin sees either a blank or coin land on the reels. For every coin you get, three extra spins are added to your Hold & Spin round. Your aim is to collect as many coins as possible; they’re all added up at the end of the round to determine your prize; some coins give you access to the four in-game jackpots shown above the reels (Mini, Minor, Major and Grand).
Casino Crypto Play
Crypto players can access the Oasis Dreams Hot Drop Jackpot slot when they deposit with any of the six accepted cryptocurrencies here. This is still the best way to get money in and out of your account; it’s faster than cheaper than the more traditional alternatives. Once the money arrives, it’s converted to Canadian dollars right away, making it easy to use in the casino and eliminating any risk of market fluctuations affecting your bankroll.
When it’s time to request a withdrawal, pick one of the cryptocurrencies out of the list, and once your request is authorized on our end, the withdrawal is quick and painless. Bitcoin takes up to 24 hours on average, while Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV often go through the network in 20 minutes.
The next step after reading this Oasis Dreams Hot Drop Jackpots review is to try the game on Practice Play mode. This free trial will give you a sense of whether or not you want to dive in and play for real money—that’s the only way you can pocket any of the seven jackpots found in the game.
With any luck, Oasis Dreams is the slot for you. However, if you’re after something a little bit more retro, why not take a look at our Lazy Bones Freeway online slot review? Whatever your fancy, we’ve got you covered at Bodog Casino.
