8 Dragons Slot

Review by

It’s all in red and gold in the 2017 Pragmatic Play online video slot 8 Dragons which takes you to the Far East with its crisp graphics and a captivating Oriental tune. The slot is played at 5 reels and 20 paylines which are populated with animals and items related to Chinese culture such as the tiger, Koi fish and golden coins. 

Throughout the game you will benefit from stacked Wilds represented as the dragons which cover 2 positions forming the number 8. And in case you don’t know, the number 8 is considered lucky in this Asian country. 

While in the base game Dragon Wilds double your payouts, during free spins you can win awards multiplied by up to 15x. It’s up to you, as you will be offered to choose a number of free spins and a corresponding multiplier value.

Don’t be afraid to meet the tiger as it stands for the top paying symbol in this Pragmatic Play video slot awarding the 500 coin top fixed jackpot. High-value payouts will be also delivered by the turtle and Koi fish while golden coins and ingots along with generic poker symbols deliver lower prizes. You need to land at least 2 tiger symbols on a paying line left to right to win and all other symbols pay for combination of at least three of a kind. Before you set the reels in motion, choose your bet from the range between R0.20 and R100. Once you are sure about the chosen bet value, you can activate up to 1,000 uninterrupted spins as well.

Dragons spreading over two positions on a reel in the shape of number 8 will complete your winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols except for Scatters. All winning combinations with full stacks of Wilds included will pay doubled awards in the main game. However, Wild appears only on 3 central reels. Scatter is represented as the red envelope with golden details on it. Land 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins feature. You will be offered 5 options to choose from. You can activate 5 free spins with 8x, 10 or 15x Wild multipliers, 8 free spins with 6x, 8x or 10x Wild multipliers, 15 free spins with 3x, 4x or 6x Wild multipliers or 20 free spins with 2x, 3x or 4x Wild multipliers. You can also opt for a mystery number of free games and range of multipliers.

The Asian-themed slot machines are highly popular among casino players and if you are curious why it is so, try out 8 Dragons by Pragmatic Play to check it out. You will be overwhelmed by the visuals and sounds providing you with a Macau-like gaming experience whether you enjoy the online video slot from the comfort of your home or on the move. Look out for Dragon Wilds and especially Scatters which are responsible for triggering the free spins feature with multipliers going up to 15x. When played at the maximum coins wagered, the game can deliver up to 100,000 coins in a single spin.

Our Rating: 85/100
