Videoslots Casino will be adding a brand new online slot from Lightning Box Games titled Dragon Palace on the 3rd August 2016 (live approx midday), this is a new release from this small Australian developer and is set to be distributed on the NYX platform.
The Dragon Palace slot is set in a very traditional oriental theme with dragons adorning the reels and lots of the stereotypical symbols you would expect to find such as koi carp and lotus flowers, the slot uses a regular 5×3 reel set and uses a 243 pay anyway payline structure.
The minimum bet for this slot is just 0.25 credits, so make sure to take that into consideration when looking through the paytables, the classic Microgaming 243-way slots are generally 0.30 credits for reference.
There is nothing too groundbreaking or new feature-wise in Dragon Palace, but on the flip side, after some playtesting it seems to be a fairly solid medium variance slot with some decent winning potential in the free spins round, especially if you manage to get several 5 of a kind and a nice multiplier value.
Dragon Palace Slot – Free Spins Round
There is one main bonus to look out for, which is a regular free spins bonus round where the player can trigger up to 20 free spins as well as multipliers that can be as high as 15x, as you would expect the bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more of the special Scatter symbol anywhere on the reels.
The number of Scatters landing on the reels directly impacts the number of initial free spins granted, the good news is that the bonus can also be re-triggered during the free spins.
- 3 Scatter trigger – 8 Free Spins
- 4 Scatter trigger – 12 Free Spins
- 5 Scatter trigger – 20 Free Spins
During the bonus round if you manage to create any winning combinations using the special Wild Dragon symbol the dragons on the reels will fire out a multiplier fireball, this results in the wins being multiplied by a random multiplier that is anywhere from 2x right up to 15x.
Overall Opinions on Dragon Palace
Dragon Palace offers nothing groundbreaking in terms of design, theme or bonus features, instead, it’s more of a steady-paced medium variance slot, there is definitely some potential in the bonus rounds if multiple wilds land on the reels along with the higher paying premium symbols, and of course the random multiplier that boosts these wins further.
Dragon Palace has an RTP (Return to Player) of 95.58%, and in our opinion after playtesting is definitely in the medium volatility/variance category for slots.
If you are a fan of the oriental themed slots, or the “land-based slots” feel and sounds, then it might be worth checking out the Dragon Palace slot.
