LeoVegas Casino has just added a new and currently exclusive online slot release from Red Tiger Gaming in the form of Mega Dragon. This particular slot is also linked up to progressive jackpot system at Leo Vegas making it a very worthwhile destination to check out this and many of the other great Red Tiger slots.
Mega Dragon takes the form of an unusual Oriental themed slot with a reel array of an 8×7 grid, no specific paylines as such, instead you have the tumbling reels effect for winning combinations along with a cluster pays format for groups of matching symbols.
Whilst there is no main bonus round feature on offer instead your efforts should be focused on creating wild symbols which are formed when winning combination that include the highest paying symbols occur.
If 2 of these wilds symbols are created and end up being adjacent, one of several dragon feature triggers, this can result in a variety of bonus features which include Added Wilds, Gigantic Tile symbols and Symbol Cloning occurring on the reels.
So whilst the mechanics are fairly standard for a tumbling reels grid style slot there are a few nice combinations that can occur when the dragon feature triggers multiple times resulting in several of the special features triggering one after another almost like an ongoing chain reaction.

Mega Dragon Slot
Mega Dragon is a strange beast of a slot, we were all set to actually hammer this slot in the review as the lack of the main bonus round and what seemed like a bunch of mediocre special features that didn’t really do much just didn’t seem that interesting.
We struggled to get even a decent “Big Win” screenshot, but thankfully playtested this slot for much longer afterwards and we at least found a saving grace for this slot.
The key feature to this slot where it really gets interesting is when multiple wilds are created in the same spin/tumbling reels and when this happens multiple dragons sweep across the screen adding multiple special features into play at the same same time. In an almost chain reaction style wins occur again and again, of course, they eventually come to an end, but seeing this happening was like night and day from what we had witnessed in our earlier playtesting of dead spins and poor features.
Whilst I don’t think this makes up for the disappointing gameplay, it might well throw out a few nice surprises for people willing to stick this slot out.
