Whether it's Game of Thrones or Harry Potter that takes your fancy, everybody knows that dragons are by far the coolest mythical creatures going. So meet Flint, Switch, Frost and Gobble – the four newest (and cutest) Microgaming characters around. From November 2nd, expect these guys to be your adventure buddies, in a slot that combines amazing cinematic graphics with a whole bunch of bonus features. We've had a sneak peek at the game so read on to see what you can expect from this new fiery, but endearing, release.
Dragonz is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot, with spins costing as little as 40p a go. The game is set for release next week, and will be available on both mobile and desktop to all Microgaming and Quickspin operators.
The slot features amazing 3D graphics, with a cartoon feel reminiscent of a Pixar film. This is in part, due to the loveable four little Dragonz that accompany your journey. Alongside the dragons are the usual 9 to Ace symbols, as well as wilds and scatters that trigger some great bonus features.
The four dragons each activate their own free spins round (more on that later), yet in the base game Microgaming have added their innovative Wild Deal feature — look out for a wild symbol on the third reel. If your spin isn't a winner, then the Wild Deal feature will be triggered and you'll receive extra wilds until a winning payline is created. This feature is activated quite frequently, which means the base game packs a punch even before we go into the other bonus features.
This new release follows the launch of Microgaming's Lost Vegas earlier this month, and Jungle Jim: El Dorado in September. In all three slot we've seen the software developer up their game in terms of graphics, yet Dragonz may be their best release this year. It's colourful, charming and fun – combining joy with a unique theme and the potential for some huge wins. It's a medium variance game, with a jackpot of 3,583 times your stake available to be won from a single spin!
As we mentioned earlier, this slot features four free spins round, each dependent upon the dragon in question. The four dragons have their own personality and their own bonus features.
Three or more scatter symbols will trigger the free spins feature, and then one of the four dragon based bonus rounds will be randomly awarded. Each has their own great qualities, however if you trigger the round upwards of 12 times, you'll be able to personally select your favourite:
- Flint – Flint is the red dragon and activating his bonus round will reward you with 10 free spins with Flaming Wilds. He randomly fires wilds onto the reels, increasing the number each time, with a possible total of 10 wilds.
- Switch – Switch is your new purple friend, and along with 10 free spins he'll also give you Stashed Wilds. This means that he will save up all non-winning wild symbols and, once three or more are collected, will redistribute them onto your reels in a flash of lightening to create a win. The free spins will continue until all stashed wild symbols have been distributed.
- Frost – As his name suggests Frost, the blue dragon, is really into freezing things. His bonus round gives you 10 free spins, with added Frosty Wilds. He will freeze non-winning wilds in place (a bit like Sticky Wilds) until they can create a winning payline.
- Gobble – Gobble is the green dragon, and he sure is hungry for wins. Alongside 10 free spins, Gobble's party trick is to turn normal symbols wild with his gooey green slime. These are called Winning Wilds and they'll remain sticky until their no longer part of a winning combination – which gives you tons of chances to win!
