Here be dragons! Dragon 50,000 Slot whisks you away to ancient China with a 25-Payline, three-row five-reeler from ReelPlay with First Look Games. The Paylines in this August 2019 release are fixed.
The soundtrack, a chilled-out Chinese melody, is in keeping with the theme, while the reels are decked up in the traditional Asian colours of red and gold.
There is also a background of breathtaking scenery incorporating mist-shrouded valleys and hills. Two temple columns either side of the reels have silver dragons curling around them. All in all, it’s a slot in a traditional mould.
How to play
The betting range in Dragon 50,000 Slot is pretty broad, from 0.20 to 100 coins per spin.
The regular A through 9 Royals are here joined by theme-related symbols including red lanterns and firecrackers, as well as gold coins plus the high-paying gold ingot symbol.
Special features in Dragon 50,000 Slot
Your Wild here is the golden dragon, associated in Oriental culture with blessings and benevolence. It comes with a 2x multiplier to double your payout.
What’s more, you’ll enjoy a 400x stake payday for five Wilds in a row. It also does its standard thing of replacing every other icon bar the Scatter.
Meanwhile, the pearl icon serves as the Scatter, which pays out for just two in a combo. Land five to scoop 10,000 coins.
Access Autoplay and set up up to 250 automatic spins.
For the regular symbols, you need to match three symbols in a Payline, working from left to right. However, the Wilds, Scatters and gold coins and ingot all shell out for just two in a row.
Land three pearl Scatters to kick this off and play 10 wager-free whirls, all with a 5x multiplier kick.
Equally, the Wild multiplier in play means you could be looking at 10x boosts. In other good news, this round can be retriggered an infinite number of times.
Land a winning combo with five of a kind made up of exclusively Wild or Scatter symbols to bank a prize worth 2,00x stake.
There isn’t a progressive jackpot in this game. Instead, the maximum win is 2,000x stake.
Return to Player
This is a high-variance offering which, as is often the case, means RTP or Return to Player can be slightly lower, which it is here at 95.6%.
Of course, there’s nothing new about Asian-based slots, but somehow Dragon 50,000 Slot breathes some fire into a well-worn theme.
And it’ll be a sound choice if you tend to like simple gameplay with a high variance and can live with the below-average RTP.
The visuals here are top-notch, with detail-rich graphics, and the overall feel of the game is that it has a lot of charm. What’s more, it’s one that should have broad appeal to a wide range of different players, while perhaps leaning a little more towards higher rollers.
On the downside, the features are fairly basic and have all pretty much been done before. So it could possibly have done with a little more originality.
But try it out (for free in the first instance), to see for yourself if it’s a game that works for you. (This will also allow you to experiment a little with a virtual balance before parting with any real cash.)
