About Once upon a dime Slots

A slot title that contains a pun is always welcome. Why take yourself too seriously, after all? The fairy tale themed slot Once Upon A Dime certainly manages to bring theme and aim nicely together. You can play this very lovely looking slot over at 888 Casino, where it’s been a staple for a few years now. Whilst the slot isn’t rich in features, it does come with a random progressive jackpot, which is always welcome. You can also look forward to plenty of free spins and multiplier wilds, which double all wins they are a part of. Are you ready to charm the princess and move into the castle?

Once Upon A Dime is quite a pretty slot. Three reels are transparent, which gives you a nice view of the lands in the background. This kingdom could indeed be yours. A charming princess, a handsome prince and someone who could be a wizard are the main characters on the reels. Get at least two of them on the first two reels for a winning combination.

Additionally you’ll find a unicorn Pegasus (we’ve never heard of that one), a pumpkin, bags of gold and some generic card symbols on the reels. The scatter is the castle and the wild is a golden coin (perhaps the dime of the title?).

The one thing we couldn’t get used to whilst playing this slot was the truly annoying sound. When the reels spin a high-pitched flute is screeching away and even when you check out the paytable the background music is less than charming. Check it out yourself, if you don’t believe us. And then mute the game.


The first feature that will interest you is the multiplier wild. It keeps you going in the base game, because all wins that the wild is a part of will be doubled right away. Whilst this is not a volatile slot, this does help keep your budget up.

The castle scatter will trigger the free spin bonus. You will need at least three of them, which will reward you with 15 free spins. Get four scatters and you get 25 spins and five scatters will come with a total of 50 free spins. It is also possible to re-trigger the feature by getting more scatters.

Thankfully the wilds will keep doubling your wins throughout the free spins feature as well.

Additionally this slot, like many other 888 games, comes with a progressive jackpot. And as usual that means you don’t have to do anything in particular to collect it. That will happen completely at random, which is great when it does happen, but frustrating when it doesn’t.


Once Upon A Dime is one of 888’s prettier but also simpler slots. The gameplay isn’t hugely exciting, but if you like a slot that isn’t too hard on your budget and reels in wins frequently, then this is definitely a good choice.

You do get plenty of free spins here and the fact that the wild doubles your wins is nice as well. The jackpot is titillating and provides additional thrill here, but don’t count on winning it. The only question we really have is this: who was responsible for the sounds in this one?
