Dragon Kingdom Slot Review
Dragon Kingdom is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot created by Playtech. The theme of the game is the fantasy world of dragons, medieval warriors and an enchanted land. You will see wild dragons fire-breathing symbols into winning combination, dragon eggs hatching and the dragon floating land which is the dragon kingdom. The game has exciting features such as wilds, split symbols, scatters, a free game bonus and multipliers. You can play from just 20p a spin to as much as £40 a spin.
The dragon is the wild symbol – it can replace any other symbol, except for the scatter and split symbols, to complete winning combinations. The dragon wild symbol can also create a winning combination on its own. If two or more dragons are found on an active payline, this combination is paid out instead of the regular symbol win only if the dragon combination is more profitable. In all cases where there are 2 wins on an active payline the highest paying one is always given. The dragon floating land is a scatter symbol. If you get at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, the payout is multiplied by the total bet and added to the payline winnings, if any.
The dragon egg is the split symbol – it hatches into a dragon and can only appear on reel 5. If there is a split symbol on the reel, the last symbol in any winning combination will be split into two and will count as two identical symbols. This is why you can have combinations of 6 symbols. In the regular game all symbols except the scatter can be split. This is known as the Dragon Split feature.
Then you have the Free Games feature which is activated when 3 or more scatter symbols appear simultaneously anywhere on the reels – you are given 15 free spins with a dynamic multiplier. The multiplier starts with a random value ranging from 2x to 5x.
After each winning spin, the multiplier raises one step from its initial value until it reaches 5x. A non-winning spin, it lowers the multiplier by one step until it gets to 2x. Basically the multiplier will raise and decrease during the free spins unless you have a winning or losing strike.
During the feature, the scatter symbol also behaves as an extra wild and can replace any other symbol to complete winning combinations – it cannot replace wild and split symbols. Additional free spins can be won by getting 3 scatters on the reels simultaneously. The scatter can also be split in the feature but only when acting as a wild symbol.
Dragon Kingdom is a thrilling game to play as there are so many chances to win with the wild, split and scatter symbols, not to mention the feature with its awesome multiplier. It’s very similar to Marvel’s Blade slot (essentially the same) but I prefer Dragon Kingdom’s theme. It’s a medium variance slot where I’ve managed to win over 300 times my stake in the feature. Saying that, there are better Playtech slots around (like The Avengers).
