Elemental Dragons is powered by Novomatic and comes with 5 reels and 20 paylines. With a Chinese theme and based on the mythical dragon, you can spin away from 20p to £100 a spin across all devices including iOS and Android. It comes with various wilds that give you a sticky wild with a respin, upgrades to a scatter and stacked wilds. There’s also Power Reels which see wilds added on each reel. The free spins feature sees sticky wilds appear which give you more free spins.
Visually, Elemental Dragons is rather good – with the dragon worshipped in the Far East, it features in the background. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well lotus flowers, lanterns, cymbals, koi carp, firecrackers, the water and fire dragons. The latter 2 are the most rewarding giving you 100 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
Elemental Dragons benefits from 5 wilds – they pay like the high value fire and water dragons. They all substitute for all symbols bar the scatter. Randomly, a dragon appearing over reel 2, reels 2 and 3, or reels 2, 3 and 4 will transform at least 1 symbol per dragon in the Dragon Wild feature:
- The fire wild will transform into a sticky wild with 1 respin awarded
- The water wild will upgrade to a scatter
- The earth wild will appear stacked
There’s a Power Reels Bonus feature which is randomly triggered – all 5 reels become Power Reels which are extremely bright. A lindworm slides along the reels and leaves a wild symbol on each reel which can then trigger the Dragon Wild feature.
Finally, there’s the Sticky Wild Dragon Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 Elemental Dragons logo scatters – you will receive 2, 20 or 200 times your stake as well as 10 free spins. Once in, reel 1 is always glowing – any dragon the lands on reel 1 will become a sticky wild.
If a reel has all sticky wilds on it, the glow will move to the next reel. If you fill both reels 1 and 2 with sticky wilds, 4 more free spins are added to your total. If reels 1, 2 and 3 all become sticky wilds, you will get 2 extra free spins. Furthermore, each transformed dragon head will give you 1 more free spin – in total, 31 free spins can be earned in total. You will carry on spinning until you run out of free spins or if you fill the reels with sticky wilds. If you manage to do so, you will win 4,000 times your stake.
Elemental Dragons is a good slot from Novomatic – I like the fact you get randomly triggered features in the base game. However, it’s all about the Sticky Wild Dragon Free Spins feature as a screen full of sticky wilds can lead to wins of 4,000 times your stake on each free spin. This is certainly 1 of Novomatic’s better Chinese themed efforts – if you like what you see/read, I suggest you try Novomatic’s Kingdom of Legend which is their best slot in my opinion.
