Take a trip to China in Prosperity Dragon, a fast paced, 5 reel, 100 payline slot powered by Ainsworth Technologies. This Asian-themed slot comes with stacked wilds as well as a 3-stage free spins feature where 2x and 3x multipliers and added wilds are on offer. Play from between £1 and £75 per spin.

Prosperity Dragon has the look of a classic brick and mortar conversion – set against a deep red backdrop, the reels include Ainsworth’s usual lower value playing cards alongside an assortment of Chinese related objects. In ascending order of value, they are a lucky 8 motif, a gold peach emblem, a jade fish, yin and yang and a tael (gold pot).

The dragon is the game’s wild – it can appear fully stacked and replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter in the base game. The patterned coin is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll receive a payout of two, 10 or 50 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and with it 10 free spins.

A couple of extra symbols are added during your free spins, potentially offering even better rewards. First is the silver star. Just like the dragon, it acts as a wild during the free spins. Land the silver star on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Super Choice feature. Here you’ll be given 3 choices.

  • 10 free spins with the 2x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang and gold peach on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.
  • 8 free spins with the 2x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang, gold peach and jade fish on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.
  • 5 free spins with the 2x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang, gold peach and lucky 8 on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.

If you land the gold star symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4, you’ll trigger the Ultimate Choice feature which offers even bigger rewards. Once again there are three to pick from.

  • 8 free spins with the 3x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang and gold peach on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.
  • 5 free spins with the 3x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang, gold peach and jade fish on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.
  • 3 free spins with the 3x multiplier for gold star wins – the gold tael, yin and yang, gold peach and lucky 8 on the middle 3 reels are replaced by the gold star.

It’s possible to re-trigger more Ultimate Choice spins so hope to see those gold stars during the feature.

That all may sound a little complex but Prosperity Dragon is in fact a very simple slot – the game is all about the free spins. The basic level freebies are decent enough but the multipliers and replacement wilds available in the Super and Ultimate Choice features make this lot very appealing.

The minimum bet of £1 per spin and relatively high variance mean it should be approached with caution if you’re a novice player or have a limited bankroll. If the stars align though, these Chinese dragons can indeed deliver prosperity if fortune is smiling. If you like Chinese themed slots, Playtech has a good selection with Sun Wukong and Jade Emperor excellent choices.
