Lucky Dragons is an ornately designed, Chinese themed slot from Pragmatic Play. Available on all devices, it’s played using a 5 reel, 50 payline game engine and comes with a free spins feature where 3 extra wilds are added to the reels on each spin. Play from between 50p and £250 per spin.
The visuals in Lucky Dragons have a traditional feel – the deep red reels feature Chinese style A to J playing card values alongside golden frogs, fish, dragons, tigers and a phoenix. The most lucrative symbol is the dragon head – landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on 1 of the 50 paylines will get you a payout of 10, 50, 200 or 800 times your line bet. The dragon head symbol can land fully stacked and fill entire reels.
The gold coin is the game’s wild, substituting for all other symbols except the scatter. Appearing on the middle 3 reels only, the laughing Buddha style statue is that scatter – land 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and with it 6 free spins.
That initial allocation may sound a little skinny but there’s plenty of scope to add – every time a scatter lands, it will add another free spin to your total. 3 on the same free spin adds another 6. On every free spin, 1 extra wild is added to reels 2, 3 and 4.
If you manage to land a few extra free spins, the chances of landed a stacked wild are greatly increased. Land multiple stacked wilds with the highest value dragon head symbol on reel 1 and some very impressive payouts are possible. We managed to turn 6 free spins into 20 and in the process pocketed over 300 times our total stake thanks to a nice fall of the added wilds.
Like many slots from Pragmatic Play, Lucky Dragons is a relatively simple affair. Well-designed as usual, the game really springs into life in the free spins feature where the added wilds can have a big impact.
The field of Chinese themed slots is already pretty crowded but Lucky Dragons shows there’s still room for more. If you want simple, well designed and fast paced action, these Lucky Dragons should fit the bill nicely. I also recommend you try The Great Ming Empire by Playtech which is superb.
