The Chinese have various superstitions, with these there are many symbols that are considered lucky and rewarding at the same time. You may notice that the game screen and reels are red in colour, but this doesn’t just symbolise a bright colour – because the colour red in China is considered to be lucky. You won’t find any text written in red because in the Chinese culture, the names of the dead were written in red, so it is seen as an insult to use red text in anything considered to be Chinese.
With the reels, you will find many symbols – the base game symbols include; golden dragon, Chinese pattern, golden pot, Yin and Yang, green emerald, golden leaf, 888 cushion and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
During the free spins bonus, there will be additional symbols flowing through the reels, these are; red dragon, gold star, silver star and golden coins.
Prosperity Dragon slot machine features 5 reels and 100 paylines which can be altered. Minimum stakes for all paylines are just 1.00, but high rollers can take advantage of the maximum stakes on offer of a massive 10,000.
If you can bet big, you can win big – well that’s the theory, right? For maximum stakes of 10,000 you have the potential to win 500,000 for spinning in five of the Chinese pattern symbols. The second highest paying symbol is the golden vase which rewards you with 30,000 for finding five on your payline.
What Features Are on Offer?
Free spins are what makes all of the Ainsworth slot games so exciting. The Chinese pattern is the scatter and when you spin three or more onto your active paylines, you will be rewarded with the free spins bonus. Ten free games will be triggered. The red dragon will be featured during the free spins and appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and will substitute for other symbols on the reels (bar gold and silver stars).
Spin in a gold star to be awarded the Super Choice Feature. You can win some obscene amounts of cash during free spins, when wilds and scatters decide to drop into place.
The Super Choice Feature allows you to choose between three features that offer differing spins with differing multipliers and symbols.
Wilds can come in the form of the golden and silver stars plus the red and golden dragons. These will substitute for a number of symbols to help form any winning paylines that may have been missed.
Our Thoughts on the Game
With high rolling slot machines from Ainsworth, comes big jackpots – but unlike the others available from the company, the jackpot is half the prize for the same stakes – whilst this may be disappointing, there are additional features on offer that the other slot games don’t have. Take the Super Choice Feature alone – this can produce some huge wins with the many scatters and wilds that can fall onto your paylines.
As usual, the paytable during the free spins bonus offers lower value payouts. We found Prosperity Dragon to be a medium to high variance slot machine with lots of ways in which you can win. The free spins take a while to trigger, as do the winning combinations on the reels.
Prosperity Dragon slot game has a return to player (RTP) percentage of 94.40%.
