If you’ve ever watched the Hobbit trilogy of blockbuster films, you’ll appreciate the importance of stealth as getting the prizes away from the dragon is much harder when the monster knows you are there. Use your cunning to creep past its watchful gaze to play on the reels and win the cash prizes which await.
Very little of the backdrop is visible but you’ll notice sweeping countryside and dramatic landscape topped by a stormy sky, providing clues to the trouble which may lie ahead. This dragon has chosen a secluded location for its lair, so you’ll be far away from help if the worst happens.
But never fear, you’ll have your band of warriors watching your back! And if you needed any more motivation, there’s a huge treasure chest dripping with gold and gemstones in the foreground, reminding you of the goodies which lie inside…
On the reels you’ll find more riches waiting to be won, along with the ultimate prize of the glowing dragon’s egg. Your warriors will also be accompanying you, with their horned helmets, flowing beards and steely gaze. But of course, there’s no escaping the beast – and you’ll also find the dragon waiting to fix her beady eye upon you.
Riches Worth Risking
With so much at stake, you may be wondering why you’re risking everything to enter into the dragon’s lair but it’s fair to say there are some stunning prizes on offer.
Some of the symbols pay out for matching just two along an active payline while other require at least three before they register a win. The more symbols you manage to line up, the bigger your prize will be.
At the bottom end of the board, you’ll win 250 for matching three and 5,000 for matching five. In some games that would be higher than the top prize so that gives some indication of what’s on offer here.
The dragon is one of the top prizes offering 50,000 for matching five but also doubles up as the wild symbol, making it easier to win.
The very top symbol on the reels is the dragon’s egg, paying out an eye-watering 125,000 for anyone who lines up five.
Up Your Earnings
As well as being the top value symbol, the dragon’s egg is also the scatter handing out free spins.
If you land three, four or five of the symbols you’ll win 5, 10 or 25 free spins. This prize can be retriggered during the free spins.
As an extra bonus, all of the warrior symbols will transform into the dragon during the free spins, giving you extra chances to win one of the top prizes on offer.
If you win on the reels, you can also opt to gamble your prize. This gives you the chance to double your earnings by simply picking the right colour card waiting to be revealed. Of course, should you lose your prize will be forfeited, so it’s up to you if you want to risk it all and bet…
Setting Your Bet
Dragon’s Deep is a game that’s played on 5 reels with 25 paylines which can be adjusted for anyone who wants to play on fewer lines. Unlike many other Novomatic titles, this is done using the control panel at the bottom of the screen.
The coin value can be adjusted from 0.01 to 50.00, providing a minimum bet for all lines of just 0.25 and a total max bet of 1250.00. All of the prizes quote above are for a max bet; the paytable changes depending on your current level of bet so will always show the relevant prizes on offer for your stake.
Dragon’s Deep by Novomatic is a fun theme and one which will be popular with anyone who likes the fantasy genre. It’s slightly disappointing that there’s no bonus features or real extras but with huge prizes on offer, the game is still likely to be a hit.
