Description and Review: Another goodie from the much under-rated Leander Games (more casinos should definitely take their slots).
This one – as the name suggests – is a fantasy based game but with a twist. The twist is that the game and symbols have been designed by legendary fantasy illustrator Ciruelo. So, as you might expect, it looks great. There are Dragon symbols, Knights and Skull Masks. Even the A, K, Q, J icons are well rendered.
Visually (and monetarily !) the best thing about Dragon Slot is the ‘Dragons Fight’. In this round, you watch the White Dragon fight the Red Dragon. The graphics are stunning and, frankly, this is where the biggest wins can be, well, won!
However, a word of warning. While there are some good bonus and free spins features, they seem to be triggered very rarely. I burnt through thousands of Euros (luckily in free play mode) before I got so much as a sniff of a bonus. As you can bet 10.00 per line on a 20 line slot, Dragon Slot can get really expensive.
This is a shame as it detracts from what should be a great slots game. For example, the ‘Free Spins’ bonus round gives you a choice of three Dragons – each with a different potential number of free spins and bet multiplier. If your dragon defeats the warrior, then you enter the free spins round with that multiplier and free spins.
Because it’s designed by an icon of fantasy illustration, the look and feel is just brilliant. For me, though, Leander are missing a trick because this is the kind of thing that keeps people coming back. A lower variance slot would mean more people get to see these features and would keep playing.
Kudos, though, to Leander for their innovative and interesting approach to online slots. But, with Dragon Slot, they should have made the game a little looser.
