Dancing Dragon is a Novomatic-powered slot with 5 reels and 50 paylines. Available to play on iOS, Android and laptops/PCs from 50p to £20 per spin, you are thrown into the hustle and bustle of the Chinese New Year where the dragon can inspire you to win big.

The theme is obviously Chinese where you celebrate the traditional festival – symbols on the reels include lanterns, dragon masks, other costumed participants and playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9). The dragon is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – it’s also the highest value symbol giving you 1,000 times your line stake for 5 on a payline.

The main attraction is the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels – you will then receive 10 free spins. Now, above the reels you will notice how many wilds have fallen on each reel during the base game – up to 15 wilds. The more you collect, the more extra wilds will be added during the feature.

In total, there’s up to 75 extra wilds that can be added during the Free Games feature. Now, the Dragon wild and each of these wilds are extended during the feature meaning there’s a better chance of winning big. You can also land 3 or more additional scatters during the feature to win a further 10 free spins (taking your total to 20).

I found Dancing Dragon to be a medium to high variance game – the biggest wins almost certainly come in the Free Games feature due to the possibility of having an extra 75 wilds on the reels. With wins of up to 500 times your stake, make sure you experience the magic of the Chinese New Year all year round. I also recommend you play Chinese New Year by Play ‘N Go which is very similar in terms of theme.
