Theme of the Game
Here’s an interesting motif from Chinese tradition, a Chinese dragon, keeper of the underground treasures named Fucanglong serves as an inspiration to a new 5×4 spinner with 1024 ways to win.
This dragon is an interesting creature, famous for its ability to produce volcanoes in order to protect the great treasure. Look out for his most valuable possession, the pearl that will be the most lucrative in this game.
The theme shows a typical Chinese setting, though it does seem a little cramped with the symbols. Graphics could have been sharper, but you get used to it after a couple of spins.
Traditional Chinese music is perfectly matched to immerse you in the game and prepare for Dragon Pearl Feature and The Fucanglong Feature that promises even 888x multiplier.
Realtime Gaming or RTG was founded in 1998 and ever since they have been holding a stable position in the online gaming world.
By now they have an extensive library of slot titles, while their portfolio also includes table games, video poker, progressive jackpots and more. RTG games are available for desktop, tablet and mobile.
How to Play It
Set inside of a Chinese temple under the open starlit sky the all ways win reel set sports 1024 ways to win and a pretty basic menu board.
The option to set is as simple as you can get which means that there is no hassle of calculating coin values and bet levels, which is always a relief to see. There is also the option to speed up the reels if you feel impatient, though you should know that patience is a virtue.
When it comes to payouts the images in the game will pay all ways for groupings of 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols. Interestingly, the maximum payout of each symbol always ends in 8, which is considered the luckiest number in Chinese culture.
Two of the top-paying symbols will be the protagonists of the game: God of Wealth and Dragon Mother. Unlike other images in the game, these two will pay for two-of-a-kind combos. The rest of the icons include typical tokens of abundance and well-being such as frogs, jade stones, lucky coins and treasure chests.
The fiery dragon appears as Wild symbol able to replace any other icon in the game. The Wild appears on all reels but the first.
As for Scatters, Fucanglong has two of them, the first one being his pearl, while the second is the image of the mountain where he lives. Both of Scatters pay for combinations of 3, 4 or 5 of a kind and they pay in any position. In fact Dragon Pearl will even pay for two of a kind.

Everything revolves around number 8 in China so it is no wonder to see that the main bonus game will grant you 8 Free Spins. One of the Scatters, the Dragon Mountain will be responsible for activating the Free Spins.
When you find three or more Dragon Mountains on the reels then you will activate the free play. If you trigger it with 4 or 5 Scatters the Dragon Wild will transform into expanding Wild whenever it appears on the reels during the Free Spins.
Should you happen to land three Dragon Mountains during the Free Spins, 3 extra spins will be added to your tally and a 1x multiplier will be added. The multiplier can go up to 8x.
Let us remind you that Fucanglong has two Scatters. The second Scatter depicted as famous dragon’s pearl will also activate 8 Free Spins but the difference is that you will need 3 or more Dragon Pearls anywhere on the reels.
The valuable pearl brings valuable prizes. It can award you between 3x and 88x your bet, but you get to find that out after the Free Spins are completed.
The Fucanglong Feature is a special addition to the game which allows you to play for free in case you haven’t reached the awarded Pearl Value.
With each free spin pearl value can be increased by 1x to 8x your bet. Pearl Value can reach a staggering number of 888x your stake during Fucanglong Feature. Another handy addition to this feature is that the Dragon Wilds expand to cover the entire reel.
Looking at the paytable, the symbol that will pay dividends for five-of-a-kind combination will be Dragon Pearl which acts as a Scatter and can pay a maximum of 888 credits. Next to it are God of Wealth and Dragon Mother paying 388 and 288 for five matching images respectively.
Apart from being the highest paying symbol Dragon Pearl can also return your stake up to 88 times during Dragon Pearl feature while as a part of Fucanglong Feature it can even act as 888x multiplier.
The RTP is around 96%, while the betting range goes from $0.30 to $7.50.
Fucanglong is definitely an interesting slot both visually and functionally. Though we are not thrilled by the overall visual impression, feature wise the game is pretty dynamic and rewarding.
There are plenty of options to keep you in the game and the best thing about it is that you can always get a back-up feature to boost your balance.
Next to the typical round of Free Spins there is the Dragon Pearl feature and if you miss to get the most of it you will have a chance to win up to 888x your win through The Fucanglong feature.
