It’s not quite ‘Game of Thrones’ but this fairy tale themed slot features a fair few of them but they don’t look all that scary to me. You certainly won’t fear playing this slot because it has four progressive jackpots and a gamble feature that can see lots of coins being won if Lady Luck is on your side.
The look of this slot with software by EGT is stunning and very different from what most punters will be used to seeing. ‘Dragon Hot’ has five reels and twenty pay-lines but there is a total of four different sets of reels in this game. The main set of reels are on the left-hand side of the screen with 20 pay-lines and above them are the current levels of the four progressive jackpots. Also above the reels are three dragons and views of a lake and a waterfall. The other three reels are on the right-hand side with three sets of 5×3 grids. The minimum cost of playing this slot is 20 coins and the max bet is 400. Simply ensure that the amount you wager on each spin is a figure that you can afford to lose if you have a dry spell.
Symbols in ‘Dragon Hot’ include fruits with 3D graphics that include watermelons, oranges, plums, cherries and grapes. There are also purple stars, dollar signs, four-leaf clovers, golden bells and red sevens. Not quite what you might be expecting considering the title of this game. The top win you can get in the base game is 60,000 coins for five of the red seven symbols on a win line. 10,000 coins goes into your account balance for five grapes, dollar signs or watermelons so there are some good wins to be had here.
The four-leaf clover is the wild symbol in this online slot and appears on the second, third and fourth reels only. It can substitute for other symbols to help get winning combinations but not the two scatter symbols which are the dollar sign and the purple star. When a wild appears on the main set of reels and completes a winning combination, those dragons finally have something to do. They fly over to the other three reels and take those wild symbols with them to give you even more chance of getting winning combinations.
This slot is also mobile-optimised and includes the Jackpot Cards feature which sees four progressive jackpots up for grabs. The feature is triggered randomly the more the gambler stakes, the higher the chance of triggering this feature. When it comes along, you are taken to a second screen that has 12 face-down playing cards. Its Pick ‘Em time and you just keep choosing cards until three of the same suit have been uncovered. You win the jackpot which that suit represents with the spade being the best payer followed by the heart, diamond and club in descending order.
Strangely for an EGT game there’s no free spins bonus round which is a major disappointment. There is however, a gamble feature but don’t be playing this too much. It gives punters the chance to at least double wins in the base game. it’s the usual playing card game where you need to correctly guess the colour of the next card. A right guess gets that win you’ve just had in the base game doubled and there are four more opportunities to further increase your win. It’s all down to luck though so be careful as one wrong guess loses you all that win.
There’s a fair amount happening in this slot. It’s important to find out as much as you can about this game before playing with real cash. To ensure that is the case, it’s helpful to have some free ‘Dragon Hot’ slot machine games to see just how everything works. Also have a good read of the paytable as that’s full of information about the rules of this game.
Punters will find several other real money online slots that have similar gameplay to the ‘Dragon Hot’ video slot. There’s the EGT game ‘Coral Island’ which has just the ten pay-lines but also has a gamble feature, wild symbols and the Jackpot Cards feature. If it’s a game that has more than one set of reels that you want to test out, then play ‘Spartacus Gladiator of Rome’ from WMS. That has two sets of reels, one being normal sized and the other colossal reels with a total of 100 pay-lines. It also has wild symbols that can win the player more winning combinations.
A great looking game that does its best to overcome the lack of a free spins round. That omission is more than made up with by the inclusion of the additional reels, the gamble feature and the Jackpot Cards progressive jackpots. It’s a shame that the dragon theme isn’t adhered to more and there’s no real need to have so many fruit symbols. There are some good wins to be had in this game though, so it’s well worth adding to your play list.
