Dragonz is powered by Microgaming and has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable from 40p to £30 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you get the meet the Dragonz crew: Flint, Switch, Frost and Gobble. The 4 friends embark on their first real adventure below the clouds and is all about the potential of wild symbols.

Featuring superb 3D graphics, it has a cartoon feel and looks fantastic – symbols on the reels include the 4 little Dragonz (Flint, Switch, Frost and Gobble) as well as playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9). You also have scatter and wild symbols which trigger a total of 5 bonus features together.

In the base game, look out for a wild symbol on reel 3 when you don’t get a winning spin – this will trigger the Wild Deal feature and give you extra wilds on the other reels to give you a guaranteed win. This triggers quite frequently so every losing spins can turn into winning ones.

This game is all about the 4 little Dragonz who host the slot – each with their own personality, look out for 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels as this will trigger the Free Spins feature. Then, 1 of 4 Free Spins features are randomly awarded – each based on the Dragonz. Once you trigger the Free Spins feature 12 times, you can then choose any of the 4 free spins features. Anyway, they are as follows:

Flint (Red Dragon) – you get 10 free spins with Flaming Wilds. Flint can randomly fire wilds onto the reels and he shoots an increasing number of wild symbols each time he fires with up to 10 wilds possible.

Switch (Purple Dragon) – you get 10 free spins with Stashed Wilds. Switch stores non-winning wild symbols and when 3 or more have been collected, they are then randomly distributed on the reels to give you a winning combination. The good thing is that free spins will continue until all wild symbols have been distributed.

Frost (Blue Dragon) – you also get 10 free spins but with Frosty Wilds. Frost proceeds to glide across the ice freezing non-winning wilds in place until they form part of a winning combination. The good thing is that Frosty Wilds remain frozen on the reels until they all contribute to a win.

Gobble (Green Dragon) – with 10 free spins awarded, you will benefit from Winning Wilds. Gobble randomly spits wilds onto the reels which then stick in place until it’s no longer part of a winning combination. This means you can get plenty of free spins with sticky wilds on them.

A bright and fun slot to play, Dragonz is one of Microgaming’s better releases in recent times – it’s quirky, colourful and has the potential for big wins in both the base game and free spins features. It also looks fantastic. The variance is in the middle with a whopping 3,583 times your stake available to be won from a spin.

I found my biggest wins to come with the Flint Free Spins feature due to the potential of 10 wilds – I managed to get 10 wilds on 3 free spins with a win total of over 1,400 times my stake (just the once though!). Overall, I really like Dragonz as it looks great, has good bonus features with great winning potential and is nicely balanced variance wise. If you want something more volatile, Microgaming’s Jurassic Park is my recommendation.
