Dragon Born is an epic historical slot powered by Big Time Gaming. Featuring superb design, this 6 reel, 117,649 ways to win medieval adventure comes with stacked multiplier wilds and a bonus feature that awards up to 50 free spins initially. Start your quest from between 20p and £40 per spin.
The first thing you'll notice playing Dragon Born is that it uses the Megaways game engine which offers a massive 117,649 ways to win - successful combinations are created by landing the same symbol on adjacent reels. The number of symbols that land on the reels is different for each spin so each 1 offers a changing number of ways to win.
Those reels are set against a hilly backdrop and include goblets, shields, knights, queen and king, a mysterious woman in purple, a royal standard, red and blue gemstones and a dragon. The dragon is the most lucrative symbol on show, awarding 250 coins for a 6 symbol combination.
A female jester is the game's wild - she can land as fully stacked and hit on up to 2 reels on the same spin. Wins including the wild are also boosted by a multiplier which can top 7x depending on how many symbols feature. Combine the 2 fully stacked wild reels and that multiplier can rocket to 49x.
Look out too for the diamond symbol which is the scatter and the key to opening up the game's only feature, the Free Spins feature – 3, 4, 5 or 6 diamonds anywhere on the reels on a single spin will get you 6, 12, 25 or even 50 free spins.
Both single and stacked wilds can hit during the feature - you can re-trigger more free spins too if the diamonds land again. There's no limit to the number of times the feature can be re-triggered too. Each of your free spins is played on a full 7x7 reel set with the maximum 117,649 ways to win in play, maximising your chances of landing a decent winning combination.
Considering the number of moving parts that are on show here, the animations are superbly smooth - in fact, that can be said for the visuals as a whole which are excellent. The gameplay is solid too, offering a nice mix of base game action with the added thrills on offer in the feature round. We'd put the variance in the medium to high range.
There are plenty of historical adventure themed slots already on the market - the unorthodox game engine offers something a little different. Throw in the potential to grab unlimited free spins and Dragon Born becomes a very playable option. If you like dragons, WMS’ Viking Vanguard is highly recommended.
