Dragonz is a brand new slot machine game, and one which has been developed by Microgaming. This new slot is scheduled for release in November, and will be a whole new take on the dragon themed video slot genre.
Instead of feature Chinese dragons, St. George slaying reptilian beasts, or any other sort of predictable dragons, Dragonz will be a cute and kind, loveable and friendly video slot. You would swear that children were old enough to game, given the style and design (and general child-friendly nature) of these graphics.
In order to achieve that effect, Microgaming has had to do away with their usual tried and testing graphics, and go full-out with 3D slot graphics. This really pushes them into some new ground.
Don’t worry, though, Microgaming have also come up with the same old 243 ways to win payline structure, so there is something of the familiar about these slot machine games. Players can expect to find the new slot in all good Microgaming powered online casinos from next month onwards.
How to play it
This new slot does its best to make everything appear nice and thematic, and that includes the wagering menu bar at the bottom of the reels. It blends in nicely with the theme of the game, and you can use it to alter your bets. Don’t expect anything drastic, with all 243 paylines fixed into place.
Players can stake anything from as little as $0.40 per spin on this new Microgaming slot, up to a high of $30.00 per spin. Few players will grumble about that wagering range.
How much can you win?
Winning is everything in online slots, and this Microgaming developed video slot comes with a non-progressive jackpot that can see you bolster your wins by around about 3,500x your total stake.
This is a more than reasonable non-progressive jackpot by anyone’s standards. Wild symbols are what are required to land the non-progressive win in this slot machine game. You will need 5 on a line to win the big jackpot.
Play For Real Money Dragonz Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: Wild symbols in this slot can appear mainly on the third reel. When a wild does so, it can substitute itself for all other icons (barring scatters), and it can offer you a wild bonus. Known as the Wild Deal, it can throw a few extra wild symbols randomly onto the reels to provide you with bigger and better wins.
Scatter symbols: The scatter icons in this game will trigger bonuses when they land on the reels, as well as offer multipliers against your total stake. There are four bonus rounds in all, and as is often the case with Microgaming slots, the more times you enter the bonus, the better the bonuses become.
Free spins / Bonus features
Free spins bonus: There is only bonus feature in Dragonz, and it is a free spins bonus. It works in much the same fashion as free spin features in some the other major Microgaming slots.The first few times you enter the bonus round, you will pocket Flint’s free games feature.
This red dragon offers up 10 free spins with Flaming (random) Wilds. Later on, you can trigger Switch’s purple dragon bonus, which offers another 10 free games but with Stashed Wilds. These wilds are pocketed (if they are not part of a winning combination), and will be redispersed across the reels to provide a guaranteed win after 3 are accumulated.
You will eventually trigger the Frosty blue dragon bonus when you enter the feature enough times, which promises 10 free games and frozen wilds.
The final free spins bonus is the Gobble green dragon bonus, and it promises 10 free games, too, but with sticky wilds remaining on the reels until they form a part of a winning combination. After entering the bonus round time and time again, you will get to pick your own bonus round from the four available.
Overall experience and final thoughts
Dragonz certainly looks as though it is going to be the bee’s knees. Admittedly, we’re not normally a big fan of the whole cute and kiddy friendly slot genre, but Dragonz certainly looks like it will be a hoot.
We have about a month to wait until the game is officially launched at major Microgaming casinos, but that should prove to be no-time at all, given the surplus of other new slots out there that there is to play in the meantime.
