Can a wise old Chieftain help summon up a jackpot? That’s what you’ll be hoping to achieve in Indian Spirit, a Native American themed slot from Novomatic. It’s a medium to high variance, 5 reel, 20 payline slot that comes with a free spins feature with extra added wilds. Play from between 20p and £50 per spin.

Indian Spirit is a nicely designed slot with some funky animations and bursts of tribal drums to greet winning spins. Set against a dusky desert backdrop, the reels include a selection of objects related to Native American life and culture – look out for camp fires, kayaks, axes and the chief of the tribe. This wise old elder is the top paying symbol and can appear as a stacked symbol on all 5 reels – land 5 in a row for a payday of 1,000 times your line bet.

The earring style Dream Catcher symbol is the game’s wild – it doesn’t offer anything on the payouts front but it does substitute for every other symbol bar the scatter and makes it that much easier to form a winning combination.

The soaring eagle is the scatter – land 3 of these anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll activate the Free Games feature and be awarded 10 free spins. The added extra here is the addition of extra Dream Catcher wild symbols throughout the feature. Hope to see those eagles fly onto the reels too as they can re-trigger more free spins, with up to 20 available.

Novomatic doesn’t really do low volatility slots and that’s the case in Indian Spirit which is a volatile affair. The free spins round is the best way to summon up a big haul of coins where the Dream Catcher wilds can work their magic quickly. You may have to wait a while to trigger it though so a decent bankroll and plenty of patience are requisites here.

If you have both of those, then this is a very playable slot. Simple it may be but Indian Spirit also packs a decent punch. Find those feature inducing eagles and there are chances to soar away with a decent haul of loot. If you like high variance offerings, Novomatic offers you plenty with Haul of Hades and Golden Ark good options.
