Dragon Champions is a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot by Playtech. This fantasy themed offering can be played from 40p to £80 a spin across all devices including laptops, PCs, iOS and Android amongst others. It comes with a randomly triggered feature where symbols catch fire and expand to give you bigger wins and a Dragon Champions Free Games feature where you can play with an infinite amount of free spins.

Visually, Dragon Champions looks superb as mythical dragons and heroic champions await you in this fantasy themed title. Symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as various heroes and dragons. The red dragon is the highest value symbol giving you 10 times your stake for 6 on a payline. The Dragon Champions logo is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter.

In the base game, there’s a randomly activated Dragonfire feature where any symbol (bar the wild or scatter) that lands with blue Dragonfire can randomly catch on fire and expand in 4 directions – this will lead to wins or improve your existing winning combinations.

This feature also applies in the Dragon Champions Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more Free Games scatters anywhere across the reels. 3 scatters will reward you with 8 free spins whilst 4 gives you 15 free spins. If you get 5, you will play with 25 free spins but if you get 6, you will receive a cool 100 free spins!

During the feature, the Dragonfire feature comes into play but will only apply to the high value dragon symbol – if it will give you a win, the dragon symbol will expand in up to 4 directions. You can also win more free spins with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters rewarding you with 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 extra free spins – there’s no limit to how many you can win.

In conclusion, Dragon Champions looks fantastic and is highly volatile – don’t expect many big wins at all but when they do come, they can be colossal. The bigger wins will come in the Dragon Champions Free Games feature due to the high value dragon expanding with the Dragonfire feature. I’ve won over 1,200 times my stake when I got dragon symbols on all 6 reels with a few of them expanding.

Dragon Champions is as highly volatile as they come as it similar, in terms of gameplay, to the popular Buffalo Blitz. Most wins will be of medium to large size but that means that you need patience and deep pockets to come out victorious – it isn’t for the faint-hearted. Saying that, this is a top slot from Playtech and one of their very best.

You will struggle to trigger the Dragon Champions Free Games feature regularly and when you do, wins should be on the smaller side – bide your time and be prepared to stick with it. I also recommend you try WMS’ Raging Rhino which is similar in many ways.
