Dragons are a popular theme with games providers, the combination of myth and symbolism – the Chinese believe dragons represent power, strength and good luck, but only for those who are worthy – makes them a natural fit for many slots.
IGT’s Dragon’s Temple, is the latest in a long line of Asian-themed games which feature a dragon, and here you have not one, but five ‘lucky’ dragons, all dancing for your attention.
It’s a five-reel slot, with 50 paylines, crisp graphics and a pleasant Asian soundtrack, and the Chinese influence can be further seen in the traditional symbols.
All the symbols are associated with luck – from fish and money envelopes to a pagoda (temple), and five pagodas on any payline will pay out 500 times your line bet.
There’s also a Dragon’s Palace which offers up to 1,000x, and playing cards from A to 10. The aforementioned five dragons are the wild symbols. They come in five different colours and expand to fill the reel when they form part of a winning combination. Landing two to five wilds multiplies your win by 5, up to 1,000 times your line bet.
Finally, there’s the yin and yang symbol, which appears on reels two, three and four, and triggers the Free Spins Bonus feature, as well as multiplying your stake by 4x when you win.
You’re trying to claim the treasure of the temple, and free spins are one of the ways you can accomplish this. You get to choose the number of free spins:
- 15 free spins with reel 3 wild throughout the feature
- 10 free spins with reels 2 and 4 wild throughout the feature
- 5 free spins with reels 1, 3 and 5 wild on throughout the feature
So you manage the level of risk and reward you are comfortable with, and if you have the luck of the dragon, there’s the potential for some magical pay-outs.
Don’t be scared, enter the Dragon’s Temple and try your luck!
