Dragons Mystery is another superbly designed slot from Stake Logic. This one is a 5 reel, 10 payline affair that comes with expanding wilds and multipliers that increase with every successive spin and boost your payouts by up to 16x. Play from between 10p and £50 per spin.
The setting for Dragons Mystery is a hillside backdrop where a dragon has emerged victorious in battle with some human warriors. The reels include 4 lower value dragon’s eye symbols alongside a quartet of brightly coloured, cartoon dragons. The dragons can all appear as fully stacked and fill whole reels. The orange dragon is the most lucrative symbol – land 3, 4 or 5 of these on 1 of the game’s 10 paylines and you can look forward to a payout of 50, 200 or 250 coins.
The other symbol to look out for is the coin which is the game’s wild – it can only land on the middle 3 reels. When it does, it expands to fill the rest of the reel and create a stacked wild. You’ll also be awarded a free spin with the stacked wild frozen in place. This is known as the Expanding Wild feature.
To the right of the reels you’ll notice a series of boxes – these relate to multiplier prizes which will boost your payouts if you manage to land winning combinations on consecutive spins. The first win is at 1x. On the second, it rises to 2x. A 3rd successive winner and your payout is quadrupled. 4 in a row and you’ll get an 8x boost. Manage a full 5 wins on the bounce and the payout from that spin will rocket by 16x!
Dragons Mystery may not be overloaded with features but there is still plenty to get stuck into – as far as payouts go, we found it to be something of a feast or fortune. There were lengthy spells when we won precious little. Get on a winning streak though and those multipliers can quickly work their magic.
If you like free spins and complex feature rounds, then Dragons Mystery probably won’t appeal. If you want beautiful design, simple gameplay and the chance of hitting a potentially big score, then this volatile adventure is one to consider. If you like dragons, NextGen Gaming’s A Dragon’s Story is little more timid.
