Asian-themed progressive slot Dragon Chase Slot from Quickspin is played over five reels and three rows with 20 Paylines. It takes, unsurprisingly, dragons as its main inspiration, and was this operator’s first-ever progressive slot. What’s more, it also comes in a Rapid version.
You can expect the Swedish studio’s trademark visual excellence here, with a warm palette that’s mostly red and gold. A golden dragon sways behind the reels and oversees the action, and the design also incorporates golden rings, fireflies and Chinese symbols. Meanwhile, some gentle Oriental music plays in the background.
How to play
As ever, set your bets, first of all, using Autoplay for up to 1,000 whirls if you’re bored of spinning the reels manually. There’s also a function you can activate to make the reels spin more quickly. Play from 20p to £100 a pop, on any device you wish.
Alongside the typically lower-paying 10, J, Q, K and A symbols, the icons include cymbals, golden frogs and dragons and Chinese ingots. The gilded dragon is the most rewarding, breathing out up to 50x stake for five on a Payline.
Dragon Chase Slot special features
Special symbols in Dragon Chase Slot include the fireball Wild or Wildfire icon, the jackpot and bonus Scatters plus the Dragon Pearl.
As ever, the Wild replaces all symbols save the Scatters. Wildfire symbols are randomly triggered and help keep things red-hot! When up to five of these land, they remain where they are, moving down one position on every spin until they eventually fall off the reels.
Because as many as 10 Wildfire icons many displays at any one time, the wins here can be substantial.
The jackpot Scatters appear only on Reels 1,3 and 5 and can activate the Dragon Pearl respins round described below, while the bonus Scatter shows up on the other three reels (i.e. 2, 3 and 4) to launch the free spins feature.
The Dragon Pearl displays on every reel and also launches the Dragon Pearl respin round described below.
You’ll find the values for these above the reels. Clearly, the more you bet, the greater your chances of winning. In fact, there are four separate jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major and Grand.
The Jackpot Meter shows how many Dragon Pearl symbols you have, and the Grand, Major, Minor and Mini jackpots award you 15, 12-14, 8-11, and between four and seven pearls respectively.
This offers the chance to win up to 1,170x stake. You’ll need three of the bonus Scatters to activate this one and receive 10 free spins. Any extra pair of Scatters landed during the round wins you thee further spins.
What’s more, you’ll see additional Wildfires on the reels, giving you greater winning potential. Should any Wildfire symbols remain once the round is up, you can use them on your next spin in the base game.
Dragon Pearl respins feature
Again, there are some tidy prizes to be had here. Land three jackpot Scatters or Dragon Pearl icons and you’re away, triggering this perk and enjoying three freebies. Should more Dragon Pearl emblems display on the reel, they’ll remain in place, while the tally of spins sets itself back to three.
When you have no more spins left, or you have 15 Dragon Pearls gathered in place, the round finishes.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in this pretty volatile game is a solid 96.39%.
This is an action-packed, strong offering from Quickspin, with some great winning potential, and plenty of features to keep you entertained. That progressive jackpot alone should make it worth a go. However, not every reviewer has loved this slot, while dragons and Asian themes have of course been done countless times before.
