First Person Dream Catcher
With Dream Catcher Live, a live version of the Money Wheel game, complete with a hyperactive showmaster and extra multipliers, Evolution Gaming had a hit.
Then they released a Monopoly variant of Live Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live. This game was also a resounding success.
With Dream Catcher First Person, Evolution Gaming has again released a Dream Catcher variant. However, it is not a Live version, with live presenters, short deployment times, and a busy chat. Dream Catcher First Person is a cutback version, from which all live elements have been extracted.
The game is played fully automated and powered by a Random Number Generator. The wheel that you see is therefore not a real wheel, but a (beautiful) digital version of the wheel.
You decide when you turn the wheel, so you also choose when the Random Number Generator stops and on which number or multiplier the wheel will end. Unfortunately, you will of course only see that outcome after you bet.
How does Dream Catcher First Person Work?
For everyone who has ever played Dream Catcher Live it is a piece of cake: Dream Catcher First Person works precisely the same.
There is a wheel with 54 spaces. On this wheel, there are the numbers 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40 and two multipliers, x2 and x7.
You bet on one or more of the numbers, and if the wheel stops on your chosen number, your stake is multiplied by it.
Suppose you bet 10 NZD on the number 20 and that number falls, then you win 10 x 20 = 200 New Zealand Dollars. You will also receive your bet back.
If the wheel reaches a multiplier, all bets are frozen and taken to the next turn. The multiplier is then applied to all winning outcomes.
Suppose a multiplier falls several times in succession, then these multipliers are multiplied again. If you spin an x2 first and then an x7, then all winning bets from the turn afterward are multiplied by x14.
You bet from 0.10 euros, up to a maximum of 1000 NZD per bet.
What are the Payout Percentages per Bet?
CasinoFisher took a good look at the payout percentages of Dream Catcher First Person. And we noticed something strange. The payout percentage is somewhat lower than with Dream Catcher Live.
Unfortunately, the game does not give out payout percentages per individual bet. The only thing in the rules is a minimum value and a maximum value.
The lowest RTP is 89.88%, and we suspect that it belongs to number 40. This is also the number with the lowest payout percentage at Dream Catcher Live. It amounts to a house advantage of no less than 10.12%. You can safely call that an old-fashioned "sucker bet."
Apart from the 40, the 5 and the 20 also pay relatively little. Funny enough, these are songs that are played relatively often. All players are, unfortunately, thieves of their own wallet.
The highest RTP belongs to the "10". It has a payment percentage of 95.65%, which amounts to a house advantage of 4.35%. Other "good" bets are the 1 and the 2.
Our advice: keep it at the 10 or the lower numbers 1 and 2. Avoid numbers 5, 20, and 40 at all times, unless you have a big profit and want to go crazy once.
What does CasinoFisher Think of Dream Catcher First Person?
Dream Catcher First Person is primarily intended for players who love the game Dream Catcher Live but do not want that busy and sometimes hysterical hassle around it. All those wannabe presenters with their bad jokes and glitter jackets that are too spacious, we are also done with it.
What we find very unfortunate is that Evolution Gaming has lowered the payout percentages of this game compared to the original.
And that, while their costs are many times lower. After all, they no longer have personnel supervision and training costs — a somewhat strange and especially greedy move.
Therefore, we cannot do much more than advise you not to play this automated variant.
