Do You Dare?
Playing online slots is daring enough, but with Dragon Palace you get to showcase your bravery even further with the gamble option. Wedged next to the spin button, it becomes illuminated when the option is available; tap it and a smaller window will open up upon the grid.
Here you’ll be asked whether you wish to guess the colour of the card (either black or red), or one of four suits. Both answers herald multiplied prizes when answered correctly, but the suit options deliver a more rewarding outcome. For those curious to see the sights but not partake in the fun, you can leave without risking your money by selecting the ‘Take Win’ widget.
Above the Clouds
To soar above all others doesn’t require you to have wings, but immense faith in what you do, and what you do here is collect the sky temple to unlock the bonus round. Unlike in other activities where the feature is separate to free spins, here they’re one and the same; it’s more compact, but just as amusing. This will likely divide gamers, but even those unimpressed by the decision can appreciate the entertainment value of free rounds.
Should you get three of a kind, the number of games will be just 8, get four and that figure jumps to 12, and should you get the full house of five matches, the number of free games caps off at 20 waves. Not only do you get to essentially play for free, but the wild symbol slaps multipliers on any wins made with it as part of the combo; as much as x16 could be yours.
A Gift to the Temple
Entry into this part of Dragon Palace isn’t free, well, unless you’re playing in the demo mode, and so you’ll need to offer up some coin to the gods that watch over the reels. The lowest pay-in is a mere 0.25, which is incredibly small for such a varied and large title; colour us impressed. Even the top bet of 125 credits isn’t totally unreasonable when you look at the numerous ways a combination can be made, though we understand that it’s a fee only high rollers will pay.
Even though there’s no winlines as such, the bet is still broken down into smaller sums of money. How that’s been worked out by the company, we’re not sure, but the familiarity helps us adapt to the controls better, and to also watch what we spend.
A Mystical Experience
When we started out on our way to Dragon Palace, we expected great things, and while some of those expectations were met, a lot of them weren’t. The issue isn’t that Lightning Box has missed the mark, but more that they’ve designed far better slots than this one. We’ve been spoiled for choice by them and that in turn has affected how we interact with this particular matrix, ironic really.
Nonetheless, Dragon Palace is a decently priced slot that has medium variance and low to medium volatility, making it fun for all wallets and interests. If you’ve relished playing this theme, why not try Astro Cat or Fu Star?
