Quickspin’s new Dragon Shrine video slot should contain a Far Eastern oriental theme. It should contain plenty of imagery relating to dragons and temples, as well as Ancient Chinese culture; or at least you would have hoped so.
There is none of that to be found in the new Dragon Shrine slot, though, save for two mildly thematic images.
Instead, Dragon Shrine heavily borrows the classic the high playing card icons, as well as robust, block-like gemstone symbols as its main symbols. It is all bitterly disappointing from a thematic perspective.
Quickspin is usually somewhat on the ball when it comes to themes, but their efforts in the new Dragon Shrine video slot are sorely lacking.
Players can enjoy the usual simplistic setup and basic features from Quickspin, but in this day and age (with entertaining themes and quality 3D graphics aplenty) that simply won’t cut it.
Dragon Shrine can still offer you wins, but that’s about all that this Quickspin developed game has to offer.
How to play it
Spread across the reels of this video slot are a total of 40 paylines. In yet more bad news, players are not going to have the luxury of adjusting those paylines as they see fit. There is a bit of welcome relief in that there is a 2-for-1 deal on paylines in the game.
Players can expect to be able to wager anything from a floor of $0.20 per spin (yes, for all 40 lines), up to a total of $80 per spin.
Few players are going to want to wager the maximum wagers in this slot, though, especially when they see what they can win and the features they get for their money.
How much can you win?
The non-progressive jackpot in this slot is rather petite. In fact, it is woefully so. Players can expect to scoop wins worth no more than 10x their total bet with this game. In order to bag that prize, players are going to be expected to land 5 wild symbols on the reels of the game.
That will certainly be no easy feat. In terms of other winnings, the next best paying symbol in the slot is only worth 3x your total stake, which is positively scandalous, since you need 5 of them to appear on a line.
Play For Real Money Dragon Shrine Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: Dragon Shrine does contain wild symbols, although they are just as unpretty as the other symbols in this slot. Wild symbols can substitute for all other icons in the game, barring bonus scatter icons, and appear as yellow block icons. They are also the best paying symbols in the slot machine game.
Scatter symbols: Scatter symbols are known as bonus scatters in this game. This is because they trigger a free spins bonus as well as dish out scattered wins.
You need to land them on the second, third, and fourth reels to bag a win. Players can win a total of 10 free games when these green temple icons appear on the reels.
Dragon symbols: Dragon icons can appear on the first reel, and they show up as stacked icons. You will need to land them across the whole reel to trigger a Dragon Stack Respin bonus. With this feature, all wilds and dragon icons will be locked into place for a duration of 3 free respins.
Free spins bonus: There is only one bonus feature in this slot – the aforementioned free spins feature which is triggered by landing the bonus scatters on the reels. Players with bag a total of 10 free games as we’ve said.
The only other perk in this feature is that players can trigger the Dragon Stack Respin feature on the fifth reel, as well as the first. There are no multipliers to boost and bolster your wins in this free spins bonus game.
It is worth mentioning that the paylines pay both ways in this feature, which does give you an increased chance of winning cash.
Overall experience and final thoughts
There really isn’t that much to like about Quickspin’s Dragon Shrine slot. From the fact that its theme has next to nothing to do with its title, the incredibly petite non-progressive prize, or the mundane and trivial special features; this slot is a bit of a bust.
There won’t be too many players queuing up to get their hands on this new Quickspin slot, now that it has been released this autumn.
