Human Versus Creature!
The reels in this game are five strong, while the rows offered up are set at three. And while this is a very standard interface for a video slot these days, the game does feature various different icons that work very well. So, alongside the usual A, J, K and Q icons, which have all been designed with a ‘Ye Old English’ font, you’ll be presented with a variety of others, including the hilt of a sword, a treasure chest, and two different warriors, who have presumably entered the story to fight off the dragon. Each of the icons are nicely animated when they’re included in a winning combination, with both knights wielding their weapons against the powerful beast.
There’s also a total of five pay lines included in the game as well, and these are fixed at such an amount. However, players can switch around the coin value, which is displayed in the bottom right corner of the screen. This dictates the amount you will wager per round, so being able to change it from its minimum of $0.05 up to its maximum of $10 per spin, shows how much you need to wager to be betting the maximum amount each time.
The Dragon’s Treasure Awaits!
It’s easy enough to get bored of spinning reels when there aren’t any added extras incorporated into the game, which is why it’s a great thing that this product has a few to keep you entertained while you’re gaming. The first of these is the gamble feature, which makes appearances in a vast majority of Merkur’s games. This occurs at random after every winning combination that is formed in the main game. Players can choose from accessing either the ‘Ladder Gamble’ or ‘Card Gamble’ game, or just collecting the winnings as they stand. The card game requires you to guess the color of the next playing card that is overturned, while the ladder game sees a ladder of values appear, and your job is to stop the flashing light on one of the amounts.
The wild icon in this game is represented by the fire-breathing dragon, of course. This symbol stands in for all other symbols on the reels, and in doing so, is able to form wins.
This icon also acts as a scatter alongside its wild status. This means that it is exempt from the pay line rule, offering pay outs wherever it should appear. Spinning five of these across the reels will offer up a pay out of 2,000 coins. In addition, if you spin three or more of these on the reels, you’ll be rewarded with 10 freespins. This round starts with you selecting one of the other symbols as a speciality icon. If a win occurs in freespins, this symbol is extended to all reel positions.
The Eye of the Dragon is Watching You!
This game definitely provides one of Merkur’s more interactive products, distancing itself from those which barely have any additional features at all. The dragon theme is great to work with, of course, and while there has been quite a lot of thought and design placed on the creation of this product, it still feels as though it’s missing something. Perhaps it’s the lack of soundtrack. In any case, you’ll still be able to participate in some fun and compelling rounds with this one, whilst also taking advantage of the integrated extras.
