What is it with the oceans and treasure chests? Well slot games would be lost without them and here is another that touches on the subject of aquatic treasure. You see the legend is that there’s a massive underwater treasure chest with riches you could only dream of (think of the wages of a top Premier League player). The trouble is that there’s this enormous dragon guarding it. Can he breathe fire underwater though? Anyway, a brave (or downright foolish) group of dwarf warriors are determined to find the treasure. Hopefully you will have more luck then them and get some big wins from this Novomatic slot.
This is a five-reel slot game that has a total of three rows of attractive looking and quite large symbols. In the background, we can see what looks like a cave and there’s that treasure chest. For some reason it’s not closed, that’s hardly great security, is it? Or perhaps it’s jam packed and they can’t afford to get another one, who knows. This game has a total of 25 pay-lines and that’s not a fixed amount. It’s entirely up to you therefore to decide just how many of the pay-lines you want to activate on each spin of the reels. Then work out a budget you can safely play with, the minimum cost of playing with all the pay-lines activated is 0.50 and the maximum a hefty 1250.
Symbols in this game include the near-compulsory treasure chest and a shield. There’s also the three dwarfs, one with a red beard, another with a brown one and the final one has a black beard but isn’t a pirate. If you can get five of either of them on an activated pay-line that wins you 500x your line bet. Other symbols are the nine to Ace playing cards, far too many but if you get five of any of them on a funded pay-line you win 100x your line bet.
Not surprisingly it’s the dragon which is the wild symbol in this slot. Honestly, would you want to tell him he’s not? This can substitute for other symbols and hopefully that little piece of assistance will get you some winning combinations. However powerful it may be, the wild symbol cannot substitute for the dragon’s egg. That’s the scatter symbol here and very useful it is too. It can get you wins just by appearing on the reels and it doesn’t have to appear on a pay-line. If five of them turn up anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin then you win 2500x your bet.
Before you start playing this game for real, do a little bit of homework. That’s not watching ‘Game of Thrones’ to see just what dragons can do if in a bad mood, but having a good look through the paytable. That’s accessed via the control buttons that are situated underneath the reels. It’s packed with details about the game including how much the winning combinations pay out and how the bonus game is triggered. Have some free games too to see everything in action before pumping some real cash into the game.
In order to trigger the bonus game, you need at least three of the scatter symbols to end up anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. If it’s just three, then you play with five free spins. Four takes that up to ten free games and if five trigger the bonus game that’s great news as you are up to 25 free spins to try and do some damage with. In the free spins round those three bearded characters become a dragon wild. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins.
This Novomatic slot game also has a gamble feature. It’s not compulsory thank God because this is an easy way to give back good wins. If you get a win and decide to go for the gamble, it’s the old game of guessing the colour of the next card. Get it right and double your win and then have four more goes if you are brave enough. Make the wrong decision and that win you have just had is gone before you’ve even worked out what to do with it.
If you enjoy the game play in this slot, there are others out there that are clones. For example, try the Novomatic games ‘Sweet Spins’ and ‘Roller Derby.’ ‘Sweet Spins’ also has 25 fixed pay-lines and needs at least three scatters to trigger the free spins round which can be re-triggered. ‘Roller Derby’ is another all-action slot that can see you getting some extra wilds in the free spins round, a sure-fire way to get some good wins.
The free spins round is where all the cash is in this slot game. If you are lucky enough to get up to 25 initial free spins, your account balance will love the bonus of all those extra wilds. The theme is a good one, too many playing card symbols though and be careful with that gamble feature.
