Indian Dreaming was released in December 1998.
The feature sound on the MKV versions of the game are three sounds in one - an Indian dance, drums and a buffalo horn (the high pitched noise). Later games only play the Indian dance, drums or just a feature bell.
Later MKVI versions have a Reel Power logo instead of the 'Way Bet' graphics on the sides.
Because of the payouts of these machines, being a multiple of 5, some win sounds are never used but are still in the game. However, if you get the free games feature on the original MKV version betting 10 credits (by 3 ways) it will play the 'Win 18 credits' sound after the Indian dance sound finishes. You can occasionally get other sounds to play during the free games if a win is substituted with a Tepee. Machines at Crown Casino (Melbourne, Australia) play the wrong credit win sounds, however this is noticeable on almost every MKV machine there. As of September 2007, only one 'original' MKV version exists there, a 20 cent machine, not counting the 2 cent 'Born to be Wild' Hyperlink jackpot machines. All other Indian Dreaming machines have been upgraded to MKVI (2006) versions.
A 'Cash Express' version, released in 2006, shows two of the main items in the EGM info/odds screen as Indian Chief and Totem Pole, rather than just Chief and Totem.
There are 2 types of the MKV version of Indian Dreaming - the later version has the dollar amount under the credits and a clock at the bottom of the screen. When the 3 Dream Catchers come up the credits add up straight away while the old version counts up like normal. If the Dream Catchers come up during the free games it goes up like normal. You can't press anything to speed up the free games, but if you insert a coin the meter goes up by 100 instead of 1 due to the sound being cut off.
The coin trick doesn't work on the Crown Casino versions; these games go all the way to 1000 credits before going up by 25's, regardless if the music stops or not. This can be a slow experience if you get 5 Dream Catchers on a bet of 50 or more.
The MKVI versions are similar to the game "Pompeii". Later versions don't display the Way Bet signs on the sides, instead they just show a Reel Power logo. Some machines play the Indian dance sound when you get the feature, while others ring a bell, or do both. Some machines also play drums when a win is substituted with a Tepee.
