Dancing Drums is powered by Bally and is a 5 reel, 243 to 7,776 ways to win slot which is playable from 88p to £88 per spin across all devices. The Fu Babies are back to bring you good fortune as you can benefit from free spins on expanded reel sets and 4 jackpots.

With a Chinese theme, it’s based on good fortune as the colours red and gold dominate. With a classic soundtrack playing, symbols on the reels are typical and include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards, jade dragons, gold coins, gold flowers, gold ships, gold pots and drums – 5 of the latter will give you 50 times your stake. The wild symbol replaces all symbols bar the scatter and only appears on the 3 middle reels.

It comes with a Jackpot Bonus feature which can be played, randomly, when 1 or more wilds appear on the screen. You will see 12 gold coins which you need to choose from – each pick will reveal 1 of 4 jackpots. When you match 3, you will win that jackpot. You have the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpot with the latter the most rewarding – you can win over 1,135 times your stake here!

The other main attraction is the Free Spins feature which can be accessed when you get 3 or more scatters starting from reel 1 – you will then have 5 options which are as follows:

  • 15 free spins on a 5×3 reel set
  • 10 free spins on a 5×4 reel set
  • 5 free spins on a 5×5 reel set
  • 3 free spins on a 5×6 reel set
  • Mystery Pick – you could get between 3 and 15 free spins on a reel set up to 5×6

Once you begin players, look out for scatters as just 2 (starting from reel 1) will give you 3 additional free spins. would opt for the 3 free spins on the 5×6 grid as this would give you 7,776 ways to win – it’s harder to win but the rewards can be much bigger.

Dancing Drums is a better slot that it first appears – for me it’s all about the Free Spins feature due to the huge amount of ways to win. If you like the Chinese theme, this is a good game to play – alternatively, Bally has produced better slots such as the bonus feature-rich Wacky Races.
