Do not be fooled by the title alone. This is no ordinary slot about owls doing regular owl things. In this fantasy realm, humanoid owls rule the forest through the use of force and dream magic. Those who enter without an invitation should prepare for a world of hurt. But those who can befriend the fierce avians may find the owl dream magic used for their benefit!

Unlike normal dreams, these ones actually have an impact on your wallet! Stacked Wilds, symbols transforming into Wilds, and icons transforming into other symbols are all of the available special features. Make good use of these gifts, or you may find yourself with far less money than you might like.

Developer

Nolimit City’s story will sound quite familiar to many people. A group of Swedish industry veterans forming a studio, and becoming a major player in slots. For over ten years, this peculiarly named company has been cranking out one game after another. In recent years, their offering has dramatically improved, and they caught our eye. Do they have what it takes to make it all the way to the top?

How to Play It

Owls is played on a 5×3 board with 15 fixed paylines that pay from left to right only. That means players cannot choose to turn certain paylines on and off in order to lower their minimum bet. To change your total bet, you can either use the plus and minus buttons, or click the bet section itself. From here, you can set your wager between $0.15 up to $75 per spin.

The layout is quite easy to navigate and use. There are small differences in the user interface between the desktop and mobile versions of the slot. Everything else, from visual to gameplay, is identical.

The Autoplay settings allow gamblers to set the number of rounds that will be played. They can also set a loss and win limit, but only as a percentage of their current balance. This is not a deal-breaker by any means, but we would prefer just setting raw numbers instead.

The game does its best to impress you visually, and it does a great job at it. The board is completely full of unique symbols, each one related to a specific owl. Spinning the reels causes the trees to shake. Meanwhile, leaves will slowly glide and fly in and out of view, and are especially noticeable if you are idling.

On the side of the reels, the wise snow-white owl taps his staff to make the reels spin. He also has a few other interactions, depending on whether you are winning or losing. But for the most part, you will be facing his stern gaze, regardless of the situation.

Special Features

When a fully stacked Scatter appears on the third reel, it enables the Scatter payout bonus. Rather than following a payline, wins are granted depending on the number of times the icon appears on the reels. Toss Wilds into the mix, and you could achieve wins with six or seven symbols!

Dream Spins are rewarded when three Scatters land on the second, third and fourth reel. The third Scatter will always be fully visible. Once the special feature fires, it will randomly choose one of three versions of free spins to play. These are:

  • Ember Dream: Five free spins where the flame shard and flame chest icons transform into Wilds on each spin.
  • Emerald Dream: Five free spins during which emerald shards and emerald books transform into the green owl on each spin.
  • Frozen Dream: Five free spins where all frost-based symbols will transform into the most coming frost icon currently on the playing field. If the number of symbols is equal, then the highest value icon is chosen.

During free spins, the third reel is always covered by a stacked Wild. The colour and shape of the Wild changes depending on what free spins are being played.

Maximum Payouts

We were unable to find any official information on the volatility of Owls. The maximum win you can score is worth 1500x your total stake. The RTP for this Nolimit City release is 96.22%.

Summary

The theme was certainly a weird pick, but it worked out wonderfully in the end. The visuals do a great job at immersing you in this fantasy world, especially the wise, white owl.

The gameplay is simple to understand, and can create some great winning combinations when it wants to. We are somewhat concerned with the lack of any volatility information. But that alone is not enough to prevent us from recommending Owls if you are interested in the game.
