Fire breathing creatures can deliver some red hot action in Dragons Awakening, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Relax Gaming. Highlights here include the Awakening Free Spins feature that awards 5, 10 or 30 free spins where the lower value rock symbols transform into higher paying dragons. In the Dragon Rage feature, 1 of the dragon symbols replaces the rocks until a winner is created. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The design in Dragons Awakening is impressively done. The reels are made up of blocks of stone. There you’ll find 4 lower value rock symbols that feature hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades. More rewarding are the quartet of blue, green, orange and red dragons.
The red is the best of the 4. Land 3, 4 or 5 red dragons in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 2, 8 or 25 times your total stake. Better still is the W wild. As well as substituting for all of the standard symbols it also delivers payouts of 5, 25 or 100 times your total stake. Dragons Awakening comes with 2 bonus features:
Dragons Rage Feature – this triggers at random following any spin. When live, 1 of the Dragon symbols is chosen at random. This replaces suited rock symbols 1 at a time until a winning combination is created.
Awakening Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the fossil scatter symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. Your reward is 5, 10 or 30 free spins. All of the lower value rock symbols are transformed into higher paying dragons for the duration of this feature.
Dragons Awakening is a simple slot. The visuals are well constructed and there’s a sweeping orchestral score playing which gives the game an epic feel. The range of extras isn’t wide but those extras can deliver some good action. That’s certainly the case with the Awakening Free Spins feature where the extra higher value symbols can have a big impact.
If you fill the reels with wilds, you’ll win 2,000 times your total stake – we found this to be quite a volatile slot too. The fantasy theme isn’t usually one of our favourites. Dragons Awakening comes together well though combining classy design with an impressive bonus round to entertaining effect. If you like the dragon theme, Dragon Born from Big Time Gaming and Dragon Maiden from Play ‘N Go are recommended.
