Dragon Reels Slot Review for Guide On
Dragon Reels is an Asian themed slot from developer EGT that can be played both online and on a mobile device. The game has the usual twenty five paylines and five reels.
The paylines are optional, with the game opening with the full 25 in play but giving you the option to drop to 20, 15, 10 or 5. The bet size will adjust accordingly. If you play the full 25 lines you can bet up to 500 coins, making Dragon Reels a potentially lucrative slot.
The game does have a progressive jackpot that is linked to EGT rather than the game itself. Standing jackpot is 5000 coins, and extra features are limited to a free spins round and a wild symbol.
Ancient Asian Theme and Feel
Dragon Reels is an Asian themed slot, admittedly of which there are many on the market already. This particular slot does hold its own though, with crisp graphics. The slot is not done in cartoon style, and you can see that attention to detail has been put into the symbols.
The background to the reels is a deep crimson red with gold overlay that looks like the pattern you often get on Chinese dresses or shirts.
The reels themselves are in block style, with each symbol taking up a third of the reel. This does not leave much space for anything else, which makes this slot good on mobile as well as online. Buttons at the bottom of the screen are neatly laid out and easy to understand.
The soundtrack stays on theme with winning sounds like gongs and roaring dragons against typical Asian music.
Not off of the symbols in Dragon Reels are theme based, the lower ones come from a deck of cards. These have been done in an Asian looking font with bright colours, but no other embellishments.
The rest of the symbols are detailed and theme orientated. You will find things like fire crackers, drums, a dragon and a male and a female Chinese character. All of the main symbols animate when forming a part of a winning combination.
The dragon is both the wild and the best paying symbol in the game, awarding players with the standing jackpot of 5000 coins for five of him on an active payline. Next up is the male character with 1000 coins, followed by the Chinese lady, the lantern, the drums and then the fireworks.
Dragon Reels Free Spins
The main special feature in Dragon Reels is the free spins round. This is launched by the golden dragon statue scatter found anywhere on your reels. The scatter not only launches the free spins round, but will also pay out 2500 coins for five of them.
Three or more grants you 10 free spins, during which all wins are doubled. This feature can be retriggered by finding three more scatters anywhere on your reels. The dragon wild substitutes for the scatter in the free spins round, which greatly increases your chances of retriggering free spins which is why this is one of the most exciting and lucrative slots NZ has to offer.
Dragon Reels is linked to the EGT progressive mystery jackpot. This is launched randomly and doesn’t have anything to do with the theme. You will have to choose three cards out of twelve, aiming to get them all of the same suit similar to a game of mobile poker.
Each card suit represents a different level, and each level has its corresponding jackpot. Should all your cards be of one suit, you win that levels jackpot.
