What’s the bread and butter of fantasy worlds? Vast, open fields, grand kingdoms, and noble kings and their valiant knights? They’re all important parts of the story, but every good story in such a setting needs a large monster for the heroes to overcome. Sometimes, a more allegorical one in a human shape – and sometimes, you just want a large dragon to put down, so the hero can absorb their power and become even more powerful.
The game has several bonuses available – two or more dragon Scatters activate a re-spin, which allows more Scatters to land. Three or more Scatters rewards free spins, and landing a Scatter during free spins expands the playing field. Symbols include playing card icons, a dragon coin, a dagger made out of a dragon’s fang, a gorgeous ring with a purple gem, a necklace with a ruby gem, and the dragon maiden herself. Special symbols include the dragon maiden, again, if she turns Wild, and the dragon, which is the Scatter.
Play’n’Go is a online gambling company based in Sweden. It has existed in some capacity since 1997 as a subsidiary of other, more prominent software companies, but it has managed to become independent since 2005, and continued to expand and thrive.
The developers have made over 50 unique titles with support for over thirty languages, and have openly embraced mobile platforms as the future of gambling. Despite their age, they’ve proven to be more than capable to keep pace with younger contenders, and other industry giants, having won Game Developer of the Year award at the 2018 SBC Awards.
How to Play it
The game is usually played on a 5×3 playing field with 243 ways to win, with the option for the reels to expand into a 5×6 playing field with 7776 ways to win. This means there are no paylines, and gamblers cannot turn some or all of them off to lower the minimum bet of the game. Play’n’Go’s mobile interface continues to shine through, allowing for easy access for everything. The spin button is large and easy to tap, and all the settings are simply a few button taps away.
Gamblers can bet between $0.20 up to $100 per spin, which is an awesome spread of bets that will please both casual gamblers and high rollers alike. For 243 ways to win, $0.20 is a steal, so we would certainly recommend this title if you don’t have a lot of cash to gamble with. The title has an Autoplay, which allows gamblers to set a single win threshold, win and loss limits, as well as choosing if the auto spins stop for any win, or if free spins are triggered.
The background image isn’t clearly visible thanks to the non-transparent reel. That said, you can still make out tall mountain-tops in the distance, the gorgeous sky above them, and falling embers being carried by the win. The animations are also quite good – we quite like the dragons roaring, and the Dragon Maiden turning Wild and fiery.

The first bonus available is the re-spins one. When gamblers have two or more Dragon Scatters, they win a re-spin. All reels which have a dragon remain locked in place, while the remaining ones spin again, increasing the chances of getting more Scatters, and a better free spins bonus, if you have more than three Scatters.
Three, four or five Dragon Scatters reward eight, ten or twelve free spins, respectively. During the aforementioned free spins, if a Scatter lands on one of the reels, that reel will expand to be six symbols high, which also creates more ways to win. If all five are activated like this, this means a whopping 7776 ways to win, and five Golden Spins afterwards. Golden Spins are free spins played on this wholly expanded reel.
The largest win you can get in Dragon Maiden is worth an insane 5000x the wager, though even getting close to that point is going to take a lot of luck.
The title has a high volatility, which means you can expect some really big jackpots, but you’ll have to spend a lot of time going through dead spins and small prizes until they happen. The title’s RTP is 96.49%, which is above average for video slots.
Play’n’Go consistently release awesome video slots, and have been doing so for a while now. To see them still maintain their streak is heart-warming. Their graphics give NetEnt competition, and the gameplay and prizes you can win are difficult to beat. If you choose to play Dragon Maiden, you won’t be disappointed.
