Dream Catcher is the most common game show-style title that you will find at online casinos in the United States. It is available in the live dealer section at BetMGM Casino, Caesars Casino and several other mobile apps and websites in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and other states. Read on to learn more about it.

What Is Dream Catcher?

Dream Catcher is an extremely popular live dealer game produced by Evolution Gaming, the leading supplier of live casino titles. It was launched in February 2017, and it has proved to be a major hit at live dealer online casinos across the world.

The game is streamed live from Evolution Gaming’s studios, with professional dealers working day and night. It is similar to roulette in lots of ways, but it also adds elements of slots play and bingo to appeal to a wider audience.

Dream Catcher has an RTP of 96.58%. You can bet $0.10 to $2,500 per spin, and the maximum payout is 40:1. You can also chat live with the dealer while the game is underway, so it blends elements of a TV game show with the thrill of the casino floor and the opportunity to win large payouts.

How Does Dream Catcher Work?

The Dream Catcher wheel has 54 pockets. Fifty-two of those pockets are marked with the numbers 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40. Those numbers appear in different frequencies, so each number has different odds. One pocket has a 2x multiplier and the final pocket has a 7x multiplier.

You can bet on which number the wheel will land on. There is the option to do so manually or using an auto option.

To make things easy, the number on each pocket tells you the payout you receive if successful. The payout on the number 1 is 1:1. That is because it appears the most frequently on the wheel (23 times). The number 2 appears 15 times and it pays out at 2:1. The number 5 appears 7 times and pays out at 7:1, and so on. The number 40 pays out at 40:1, but it only features once on the wheel.

If the wheel lands on the multiplier, the bets will remain on the same numbers. The dealer will then spin the wheel again, and if it lands on your number, your payout will be multiplied by 2 or 7.

What Are the Benefits of Dream Catcher?

Dream Catcher is a fun, vibrant, and sociable game that you can play with a live dealer from the comfort of your own home. The hosts are very bubbly and keep things entertaining.

Some players like the idea of seeing a live dealer spinning a wheel as opposed to playing against a Random Number Generator. A key strength of the game is also to hit the 7x multiplier, which can lead to some large payouts.

However, it is hard to hit a multiplier and then your chosen number, while the game lacks the depth of live dealer roulette.

Alternatives to Dream Catcher

The most obvious alternative to Dream Catcher is live dealer roulette. It provides you with more betting options and it is a more complex game.

If you like the idea of playing game show-style titles for real money, you may like to try games such as Monopoly Live, Deal or No Deal, The Money Drop, Mega Wheel, Crazy Time, Wheel of Fortune, Side Bet City or Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt.
