As of late, I have started to love dragons more and more. From the award winning movie “How to Train Your Dragon” to the three Dragons in Game of Thrones, seeing a dragon in a slot game just excites me.
With A Dragon’s Story mobile slot, NextGen Gaming has made the Ruff the dragon a little tamer (somehow reminds me of Casper the friendly Ghost), and this dragon just watches his beloved treasures in his cave passed down to him from the mighty Sir William. What seemed to be a happy fairytale is just about to take a twist when you start knocking on Ruff’s door for his treasure!

As you enter Ruff the dragon’s lair, you will notice Ruff himself to the right of the reels. He’s there for a reason; to guard his treasure that is laid across the whole bottom of your reels. In this slot game, the reels available are of 3 X 5 layout and within it is a slightly higher than industry standard 25 fixed paylines. The minimum wager that this game accepts is 25p and the maximum is capped at £50 per spin. Being a low to medium risk game, you can expect to maintain your bank balance even after a long time playing.
In my opinion, NextGen has also put quite a bit of thought into the design of the symbols in this game. From just a few minutes of playing, you will come across symbols of Sir William himself, some gold and even burning shoes. These are the symbols you should be looking out for as they pay the most compared to the lower value ones like the K, Q, J, 10 and so on.

If you ever were to fight a dragon, you probably have to take the stance of “Go Big or go Home”. Why am telling you this? Simple. This slot game is ALL about the SuperBet feature. Best part is, you can actually control it. All you have to do to activate it is to click on it on the bottom right of your reels. Once you do that, little dragons on the bottom will breathe fire onto your reels and these turn into wilds! Make sure you keep an eye on your screen, the animations are pretty cool on this one.
Deep diving into the SuperBet option, there are 2 levels that you can choose from. The first level will unleash little dragons onto your second third and fourth reels. The second level however, unleashes dragon fire onto all your reels, from your first reel all the way to your fifth. The first SuperBet level increases your RTP to 95.33% and the second SuperBet level increases your RTP to 95.62%.
The second feature in this game is the traditional free spins. The free spins are triggered when you land at least three scatter symbols anywhere on your reels. You be rewarded with ten free spins. I feel that this is the most profitable feature as all your wins are doubled in this feature. On a side note, the SuperBet feature can be activated during the free spins.
Next up, is the Brave Sir William bonus feature. I feel that this is the most interactive feature in this game. In this feature, a win multiplier is randomly rewarded to you, and in order to do so, you will have to pick on the few fireballs that will be awarded to you on your screen.
Finally, NextGen has incorporated the Gamble Feature into this game. Everything is standard with this one; you double your winnings with the right colour guess and you quadruple your winnings with the right suit guess.
I absolutely loved the take of NextGen on the theme of this game. Even first impressions with Ruff the Dragon himself on the right of the reels show how important the theme is in this game. On top of the amazing theme, the stunning graphics paired with the uplifting music just makes the whole gaming experience better. As anticipated from an experienced game developer like NextGen, A Dragon’s Story mobile slot is as smooth as it can get, and I encountered zero flaws or bugs after playing for an entire hour.
One thing for sure – This is the first game I have reviewed in months that has truly satisfied me in the bonus features department. Recently, many game developers (including huge and experienced ones) have not been incorporating more than two bonus features into their games.
More often than not, I feel that this inhibits the gaming experience as a whole as you never get to leave the game feeling satisfied. In A Dragon’s Story however, NextGen Gaming has gave us four different features in one game. Truly inspirational.
I always have loved dragons. A Dragon’s Story my NextGen has just made me love dragons even more. With the stellar storyline that this slot brings to the table, I feel that everyone that plays this game will be truly entertained.
Combined with the heightened RTP’s during the SuperBet mode, you are in for a big win! A Dragon’s Story slot is hands down the best mobile slot I have reviewed over the last couple of months.
