2 symbols of Chinese fortune form the basis of 8 Dragons, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Pragmatic Play. It comes with stacked wilds that double payouts and a bonus feature that offers between 5 and 20 free spins, initially, with multipliers that can top 30x. Playable on all devices, stakes start at 20p and rise to £100 per spin.
The design in 8 Dragons has a classically Chinese look – the reels sit against a red and gold backdrop and include A to 9 playing cards as well as gold pots, coins, fish and dragons. The top standard symbol is the tiger – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll win 2, 20, 100 or 500 coins.
The 8-shaped double dragon is the wild – it can land on all reels and stretches 2 symbols high. When the wild lands fully 2 high and forms part of a winning combination, the payout is doubled.
Wild multipliers are also central to the action in 8 Dragons’ main feature. To trigger the Free Spins feature, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the money wallet scatter on the same spin. You’ll then be given the pick of a selection of free spin and multiplier combinations.
- 5 free spins with 8x, 10x or 15x wild multipliers
- 8 free spins with 6x, 8x or 10x wild multipliers
- 15 free spins with 3x, 4x or 6x wild multipliers
- 20 free spins with 2x, 3x or 4x wild multipliers
Alternatively, you can choose a Mystery allocation – this will award a random selection of free spins alongside a random multiplier range. For example, you could get 20 free spins with a 15x multiplier if you’re lucky!
Land 3 scatters during the feature and you’ll get another round of free spins complete with the same range of multipliers. Furthermore, the wild can form part of a winning combination to double payouts – that means you could get a potential 30x multiplier on your free spins!
8 Dragons is a typical Pragmatic Play slot – the glossy design isn’t particularly flashy but is very nicely done. The visuals are super sharp and there’s an ‘Enter The Dragon’ style soundtrack playing away while you spin. Expect to see the double wilds at regular intervals in the base game. The free spins offer the best winning opportunities as the wild multipliers can quickly have a big impact.
Chinese-themed slots are all the rage at the moment – 8 Dragons is one of the better ones. Combining classy design with a top feature round, it’s well worth a spin. In terms of Pragmatic Play, I recommend you try some of their other titles such as 3 Kingdoms Battle of Red Cliffs and Hercules Son of Zeus.
