The name Red Dragon drums up images of fire breathing mystical creatures of old. It is however the name of a slot developed by 1×2 Gaming. With its oriental theme, it brings you a taste of lands far away instead of that dragon you were possibly hoping for!
Red Dragon is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot that offers a very healthy RTP of 97.32% for players. Set out as if the reels are spinning inside a temple, the background looks almost reminiscent of a mountain scene. All the symbols are oriental in theme such as Sushi, a paper lantern, a hat, and a fan; these make up your higher paying symbols. Lower paying symbols are depicted by your more traditional card values, A, K, Q, J and 10, but designed in an oriental font.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin with all lines in play and can be increased to £62.50 per spin with all lines in play. You can adjust the coin value, coin level and the amount of lines active, to reach your desired bet amount before each spin.
Wild Symbol – In Red Dragon a warrior is your wild symbol and he will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and the bonus.
Scatter Symbol – An ancient temple is your scatter symbol and landing three or more of these anywhere in view will trigger the bonus spins.
Bonus Symbol – Taking a bit of inspiration from the name of the game, a dragon is your bonus symbol. To trigger the bonus game, you need three or more bonus symbols on an active pay line. The more bonus symbols you land, the better it is for you when the game begins.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 30 bonus spins.
Whilst there is no way to retrigger the bonus spins from within the feature (which is a shame), Red Dragon does offer a x2 multiplier for all wins made inside the bonus spins feature.
Bonus Game Feature – This is a very interesting bonus game, to trigger it you need a minimum of 3 dragon bonus symbols on an active pay line. However, if you land more than 3 it can help you when the game begins. Each bonus symbol you land offers a life for the game and when you enter you will see a scroll at the bottom. The aim is to pop the lanterns floating up the screen to try to reveal segments of the dragon. As you pop them you will reveal sections of dragon, cash amounts and hearts, but beware revealing a heart will remove a life.
Red Dragon is a bright, fun and fast paced slot game, offering a great RTP and wins that trigger often. Even the bonus symbol and scatters drop in place often enough, meaning more fun to be had with the features. Overall the game gives players a lot and we think if you haven’t tried Red Dragon yet it is definitely one you should be checking out.
