The ancient Chinese dragon has always been a powerful symbol of wealth and fortune especially when it’s set in the appropriate time period. Although a dragon isn’t the only beast that makes an appearance in the game, there are many more lurking in the reels ready to either bless your spins.
Obviously set in ancient China, the game takes heavy inspiration from the mythology of the time period. While this is a common setting for video slots, let’s take a look and see if Play’n GO has managed to create something unique with their take on the theme.
Theme and Symbols
Play’n GO has set this title to the backdrop of misty mountains, framed with red wooden pillars. The setting is strikingly beautiful and the colours used do a great job to emphasise the setting, there are many reds and golden yellows used you feel like you’re in the time period.
Of course, the Red Dragon symbol is present in the game, fully stylised and looking fantastic.
Another icon to look out for is the White Tiger, looking ferocious.
Following that is the Maroon Phoenix that is incredibly majestic.
And finally there is the Emerald Tortoise that looks like it has wisdom beyond its years.
Additionally there is a Scatter Symbol that is represented by a Yin Yang icon and a Wild Icon represented by a big Gong icon and can substitute for any other symbol in the game except for the Scatter.
Betting Options and Features
The first thing to note is that the game is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot that has a total of 243 payways and has a RTP of 96%. Players are able to vary their bet amounts to multiple different denominations.
Jackpot – One of this game’s biggest features is that it’s a jackpot slot. That means that there are four jackpots that can be won depending on how much you’re willing to bet per spin. The jackpots that are included are mini, minor, major and grand. Jackpots are progressive and in order to win you need to land a Wild Symbol in a randomly generated golden reel during a paid spin.
Free Spins – These are awarded when 3 or more Scatters appear on the grid during a single spin. Should that happen, 8 bonus spins are awarded. Before you are able to use your bonus spins, you need to choose one of five options. Depending on which one you choose, that symbol will only be present during the bonus spins.
Should Free Spins and the Jackpot be won during the same spin, the Jackpot is resolved first as they cannot be won during the Free Spins.
Play’n GO has flexed their artistic muscles with this title, the symbols are beautiful and the theme is an interesting one. While there is a jackpot feature, other than that it is quite barebones. If you’re a fan of the setting or developer, definitely give this one a go.
