In Chinese culture dragons are mythical creatures symbolizing power and nobility. Quite different from what we are used to in Western-culture stories of mean flying dragons spitting fire.
So don’t be afraid as in Dragon’s Temple Slot, the Dragon is on your side. It expands across the reels dancing and helping you make the best of 5 reels and 50 paylines, playable from $0.50 to $500.
IGT’s high-end technology delivers a typical Asian-themed slot coloured red, the luckiest colour for the Chinese, though they did not excel at the choice of music which left us feeling jumpy and slightly irritated.
Whether you believe in dragons and lucky omens or not, you will definitely benefit from the Free Spins and whole reels of Stacked Wilds.
What We Love
We are thrilled by the way the dancing Dragon is depicted and more importantly by his generosity. This mysterious but benevolent dragon comes in five different colours, each of which grants you expanding Wilds.
We were amazed to see that each time the Dragon appears it crawls out of the tile and spreads across the whole reel, granting you a full reel of Wilds. No need to say that the Dragon is our favourite character.
The main attraction of the game is, definitely, the Free Spins, which are activated by three Scatter symbols. This typical bonus feature was enhanced by offering three different alternatives. Each alternative is a combination of Free Spins and added Wilds which remain stacked during every spin.
The round that grants 15 Free Spins comes with the middle reel full of Wilds. There is also the option to settle for 10 spins, but you will get two Wild reels (2 and 4). However, if you pick the option with only 5 Free Spins the Dragon will generously reward you with three full Wild Reels.
Quite a nice range of options, we must admit. If you feel like testing your luck you can choose the option with more spins, while if you like to play it safe, then you will surely win with three Dragon Reels.
We loved the fact that the players have the possibility to make their own choice, as this adds to the interactive quality of the slot and gives us some control of the game.
What We Do Not Like
There are couple of things in this slot that didn’t quite live up to the expectations. First of all, it is the quality of the theme. Even if we forgive the choice of Asian-icons that have been used so many times before, we cannot help but notice that apart from the dragon there is not much too look at in this slot.
Other than that, it took a long time until we hit the Free Spins round, which might turn down some players, but still there is the expanding Dragon to entertain you, so we could live with that.
The Free Spins and stacked Wilds during each and every spin definitely make this slot worth playing. Even though you should be prepared for dry spells here and there and terribly annoying soundtrack, the Dragon truly is your guardian as it appears quite regularly and adds Wilds to the reels.
The betting range is wide enough to fit the budget of most of players, so we think that you should give Dragon’s Temple a spin.
