Dragon Shrine is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot which is powered by Quickspin. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this Asian themed offering has a modern twist and 2 superb bonus features with respins and free spins with locked wilds.
Looks wise, Dragon Shrine is typically Quickspin – great graphics and animations are a given. Set on a blue, sky like background, symbols on the reels include 4 gemstones and playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10). You also have a wild, a dragon symbol and temple bonus symbol. They do have a Chinese feel but a modern one. The reels have an unusual reel layout – 3x4x4x4x3.
In terms of features, look out for the Dragon symbol appearing fully stacked on the 1st reel as this will trigger the Dragon Stack Respin feature. Then all Dragon and wilds are locked in place with 3 respins awarded – any additional Dragon and wild symbols are also locked.
It’s gets even better in the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 bonus scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously – you are rewarded with 10 free spins. As well as both ways win in the feature, the Dragon Stack Respin feature can be triggered by getting a full stack of Dragon symbols on either reel 1 or 5.
Once you get this, a second stack of Dragon symbols mirrors to appear on the opposite triggering reel – if you were to get the Dragon stack on reel 5, it would mirror on reel 1 (or vice versa). You will then get 3 respins with wilds and dragon symbols locked in place. Finally, you can retrigger the Free Spins feature with 20 free spins possible.
Dragon Shrine is a medium variance game with a win potential of 871 times your stake – the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature due to both ways wins and the mirroring Dragon Stack Respins feature. There are also decent wins available in the base game naturally. It’s an innovative concept from Quickspin and one that will surely prove popular – I also recommend Spinions Beach Party which is a high volatile offering with sticky wilds in the feature.
