Like most slots in the Playson catalogue, the design here is very nicely done. Set against a misty backdrop of hills and blossoms and watched over by a pair of dragons, there’s an almost tranquil feel to the visuals here.

On the reels are Japanese-style A to 9 symbols as well as a fox and deer, and 2 women in traditional dress. The best of the standard symbols is the bearded man (Shogun) who awards 25 times your stake if you land 5 in combination. The pink flower is the wild. As well as substituting for all of the standard symbols, it also offers payouts of 50 times your stake (for 5 in view). There are 2 extras in Sakura Dragon.

Wild feature – 1 or possibly 2 animated dragons can fly onto the reels at random on any spin. The dragons leave a trail of wilds in their wake. A new payout calculation then follows with the extra wilds in position.

Free Spins feature - this is triggered by landing 3, 4 of 5 of the Bonus symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. After a payout of 5, 10 or 50 times your total stake, you’ll then go on to play 8, 12 or 20 free spins. You can expect to see the dragons and their extra wilds come into life more regularly during the free spins round than in the base game. Re-triggers are possible here too with up to 50 free spins possible.

Sakura Dragon is a very simple slot. It’s not overloaded with extras but the dragon wilds and free spins combine to keep things moving. This might look quite a gentle slot but the variance is in the medium to high range – you can win 750 times your stake on each spin/free spin.

You won’t find anything spectacularly innovative here. Quality design and age-old features combine well in Sakura Dragon which makes this trip to historical Japan one to consider if you enjoy the Asian theme. You also have Quickspin’s Sakura Fortune which has a similar theme.
