The vast majority of the symbols seen during your playthroughs are stacked, be that by two or three, and so the likelihood of making a winning combination is a lot higher than with most games. We found that we got a big win on our very first spin. You’ll be aware of when you’ve managed to make such a victory, and not simply because your total climbs upwards, but because of the way the reels transform.
From what we’ve gathered, this only happens on the first and second reels, but when it does the stacked images will come together to make one giant picture; the only time this doesn’t happen is if a card value win is made. Then each of the squares involved in that win will be highlighted by fire, to further help pinpoint where your victory was claimed.
Opening the Portal
Upon the matrix you’ll have seen a portal symbol, which sends the rest of the grid into excitement when two or more appear in one spin. The reason for this is because between three and five of the portal symbol triggers the free spins round, easily the most intense part of the game.
This unique symbol can land anywhere upon the reels, making it easier to find, at least in theory – you’ll still find making a match taxing, despite the freedom of movement. When you’ve got the free spins in the bag, you’ll be asked to select from five symbols. These icons have been seen inside the base game, but they now have different attributes connected to them.
- Dragon Kingdom Logo: x1 multiplier
- Dragon Tamer: x2 multiplier
- Fire Dragon: x3 multiplier
- Earth Dragon: x4 multiplier
- Water Dragon: x5 multiplier
Before you go thinking that it’s as simple as picking the highest stacked symbol, remember that the higher the wins, the more difficult it is to find the stacked icons during the game. So while the x5 might be the obvious choice, we’d go with the x3 or lower, simply because we stand a better chance of winning them. However, the choice is always yours to make.
Paying the Toll
Being part of a world that is unlike your own can be hard, and so adapting to the rules is an absolute must for all you dragon hunters out there, experienced or not. To ensure a smooth journey, you need to pay a fee of between 0.25 and 250 credits. To do this you need to select either the (-) or (+) buttons on either side of the spin widget. A word of advice: don’t be alarmed at the size of the bet, for it looks larger than what it actually is, a trait that the brand has yet to fix.
As you’ve probably started to become aware of for yourself, Dragon Kingdom has little substance when you scratch beneath the surface. Topgame deliver a fine array of graphics, making the aesthetic more than stimulating enough for its users, but then only provides the free games as any means of real entertainment. Thereafter the paytable is all about money, and although cash is good, entertain is even better; basically, we expected more teeth.
If you’re looking for low impact gameplay with stunning visuals, then this slot is going to be hard to beat, but we fear it’ll never exceed beyond being a gap filler.
