The dragon motif has been used a lot in the online slots world, and Pragmatic Play's Dragon Kingdom was another entry into that particular sub-genre. To try to stand out and compete, they built this game around great graphics and a gameplay style that uses a high hit-rate and a relatively low volatility. This slot is all about making a lot of wins, and as you'll tell from the stacked symbol-heavy lineup of symbols on the reels, everything is set up around this particular play style. If you prefer a higher volatility, however, then you might want to look elsewhere.
Slot Format and Layout
The layout for this game is about as normal as you can get. It has three reels, five rows and 25 paylines. Betting is set up so that you choose coins that run from $0.01 to $0.50 apiece, putting the minimum wager per spin at a pretty reasonable $0.25 per turn. However, you can also choose to wager up to 10 coins on each payline, so that puts the maximum wager up at $125 per spin. Clearly this range of available bets is very inclusive of players at different levels of stakes.
The wild symbol in this video slot is the Dragon Kingdom logo symbol, and it makes an appearance on every reel. Five of a kind gives you a very solid 400x win, and you can also pick up 100x for four f a kind. The three of a kind payout is 30x, and two of a kind pays 10x if it doesn't create a three-of-a-kind payout that is worth more. Like all of the non-scatter symbols, this wild shows up stacked, and that means you have chances for some very serious wins, especially if you get four or five of a kind, thanks to hitting wins on multiple paylines.
Scatters and Free Spins
There is a golden gate type of symbol that is the scatter in this game. If you get three or more anywhere on the five reels, then you'll pick up a set of five free spins. You can re-trigger for three extra free spins at a time with no maximum on he number of times the feature can be re-triggered. At the beginning of the feature, you'll get to choose one of five different reels sets that have super stacked symbols for one of five symbols. Each of these also has a multiplier that goes as high as 5x. For low-volatility play, we suggest the 1x multiplier with the super stacked wilds.
Best Game Payouts
There are four important symbols that make up the top tier of wins, and they all pay for two of a kind or more, just like the wild symbol. The woman in red pays 100x for five of a kind. You can also win 50x for five of the orange dragon or 30x for five of the green one. The blue dragon will pay out 25x for five as well.
On the lower end, you have the card rank symbols. The green A symbol gets you 15x for five, and so does the blue K. The payout drops to 13x for five of the red Q or purple J. These are very reasonable wins considering the fact that they will often hit multiple times at once thanks to all of the symbols showing up as stacked, particularly with the wilds.
Dragon Kingdom is a fun game if you are into this particular type of gameplay, which most players tend to be. The hand-drawn style graphics are great, and they merge when they are a part of winning combinations to create animated sequences that are very exciting. The free spins feature has a lot of depth with multipliers, choices for different reel sets and the ability to re-trigger the feature as many times as you want. Overall, we feel very comfortable recommending this game for most players, though it falls a bit shy of breaking into the truly upper-tier level of slots.
