It seems that dragons have become rather popular in recent years, in fact you could say they have become a blazing success. There’s a few films and a certain television series that has been the reason and dragons and those who are out to slay them always make a good theme for an online slot. That’s the case with ‘Dragon Champions’ which has software by Playtech and provides its players with plenty of chances to get big wins, particularly when Dragonfire hits the reels.
First look of this slot will impress punters and they’ll be inspired to play and get some good winning combinations. Rather than the usual five reels, there’s an extra one here so the top prizes are paid out for six of a kind on its four rows of attractive looking symbols. Another difference is that there’s no strict set of win lines. This game has 4096 different ways to get wins and that’s achieved by wins being paid out when there are three or more adjacent symbols from left to right. The minimum cost of playing this game is 0.40 and the max bet is 80, just ensure that the amount you wager is a figure you can afford to lose, though hopefully it won’t come to that.
The symbols in the ‘Dragon Champions’ video slot are a mixture of those that adhere to the theme and the nine to Ace playing card symbols that do look a little bit out of place. When it comes to adhering to the theme, we get two male and female heroes, a female archer and a sorcerer. There’s also of course a big red dragon and six of those will see you cash out 400x your coin stake on that successful spin.
Also look out for the Dragonfire symbols as these can help get you some great wins. When any symbol lands with Blue Dragonfire it can expand in four directions but it can’t affect either the wild or scatter symbols. If they do appear it’s going to be good news because they only expand if able to create or improve a win.
The wild symbol is the Dragon Champions game logo. This can help boost your account balance by substituting for all the others on the reels apart from the scatter symbol. There’s no multiplier paid on any wins that the wild creates which is a shame. The scatter symbol is the shield with free games written on it. Unlike in some slot games the scatter doesn’t pay out prizes but if you can get three of them anywhere on the reels then this gets you into the top free spins game.
Just how many free games players are awarded depends on how many scatter symbols trigger the bonus round. Three scatters see you win eight free games, four takes that up to 15, five moves it up to 25 and six scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels means you will be playing 100 free games. During the free spins round, all Dragonfire symbols are the high-paying red dragons.
Players can win more free games if those scatter symbols come along again. Two on the reels at the end of a spin award five more free games, three sees eight received, four takes that up to 15, five has 25 more games you don’t have to pay for and six will see another 100 free games awarded.
There’s a fair amount to take in when learning to play ‘Dragon Champions.’ Make sure that you have a thorough read of the paytable before you play for real money. Just press ‘Info’ underneath the reels or go through the in-depth rules clicking on the button in the top right of the screen. The paytable includes details of how much each winning combination pays out. For example, six of either the male or female heroes pays out 200x your stake and it’s 160x for the sorcerer or archer. Also have some free ‘Dragon Champions’ slot machine games to see how everything works.
There are other online slot machines to play that have similar gameplay to this slot. You can test out another Playtech slot called ‘Buffalo Blitz’ which also has 4096 different ways to win. It also has six reels and features a free spins round with wild symbols helping to produce wins. Also have a go playing the Yggdrasil slot, ‘Rainbow Ryan.’ Again there’s 4096 ways to win and has a slightly higher RTP than ‘Dragon Champions.’ Three scatters can trigger a free spins round and the wild symbol appears on all the six reels.
There’s plenty to enjoy about this Playtech slot game. The theme is a good one and even with all those playing card symbols, there are others that adhere well to the theme of this slot. There are lots of ways to win and with the Dragonfire and wild symbols, those wins can come along regularly. It’s the free spins bonus round where the big wins occur thanks again to Dragonfire and the opportunity to win lots more free games. Ideal to play on your PC, it’s also mobile-optimised so this comes highly recommended.
