Dragon’s Luck Power Reels is an unusual take on the ever-popular Chinese-themed slot. Created by Red Tiger Gaming, Dragon’s Luck uses a 10 reel game engine which offers 30 paylines. There aren’t any bonus features but the transforming symbols deliver plenty of action. Play on all devices from between 20p and £20 per spin.

The design in Dragon’s Luck Power Reels is typical of what you’ll usually find in a slot from Red Tiger Gaming. The reels are set within a pagoda-style building and flanked by pillars draped in dragons. You’ll see Chinese-style royal values as well as a lotus flower, a goldfish and a doll. The best symbol is the 138. This pays 3,888 times your stake if you manage to land 10 in combination.

The way winners are created is a little different from the norm. To create one, you need to land 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels in the payline. You can land a winner with multiple symbols on the same line though. For example, if you land 3 successive goldfish, then 4 successive 138s then 3 successive dolls in a payline then you’d have a 3 of a kind winner, a 4 of a kind winner and another 3 of the kind winner.

On most spins, you’re likely to see the gold coin symbol. All instances of this turn into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made.  As well as single coins you could also see Mega Coins. These oversized symbols transform into blocks of the same symbol. These can even totally fill all 10 reels which can deliver some potentially spectacular combinations.

Red Tiger Gaming has tried something different here which is to be applauded. The design might be typical of the theme but the gameplay certainly isn’t. The unusual game engine takes a little getting used to so a few spins in demo mode wouldn’t go amiss.

Once you’ve got used to the set up, it’s actually a very straightforward slot. The 10 reels deliver plenty of base game action which is just as well as there aren’t any bonus features. If you enjoy Chinese-themed slots but fancy playing something a little different from the norm, then Dragon’s Luck Power Reels is worth a try. I recommend you try Red Tiger Gaming’s Ninja Ways which has an Asian theme and offers more on the features front.
