Dragon Hero Overview
Pragmatic Play has released a new online slot game called Dragon Hero.
For this game they have gone with an Asian theme again. Which seems to be working for them.
Now the reels are set above a rooftop of a Chinese city with a pagoda in the distance. And of course dragons all over.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 4 symbols high and comes with 20 lines.
You will find standard card symbols and other, pretty standard, Asian themed symbols, like for instance a golden frog. All these normal symbols can appear stacked on all reels.
The game also features normal wild symbols, which can also appear on all reels. But also super wild symbols, which can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. These wilds will award a feature. And last scatter symbols that can, again, appear on all reels.
Dragon Hero comes with the almost standard maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet.
Dragon Hero Features
Super Wilds can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. They work the same as a normal wild symbol, but these symbols also hold 1, 2 or 3 regular wild symbols, represented by a yin yang symbol.
After the reels stop spinning all these normal wilds that are held by the super wilds are added to random spots on the reels.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 6, 8 and 10 bonus wheels respectively. Each bonus wheel will then reveal 1, 2 or 3 free spins. Meaning that the minimum free spins you will receive is 6 and the maximum free spins are 30.
During free spins all Super Wild symbols will become sticky and will stay on the reels until the end of the free spins feature. They still have 1, 2 or 3 normal wilds on them which will be added to the reels after each spin.
Each scatter symbol appearing during free spins will fill in half of an empty spot of the normal wilds on the Super Wilds. When you fill a spot, that will now give an extra normal wild.
You can’t win extra free spins during this feature.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet. This will guarantee a minimum of 3 scatter symbols.
The theme Pragmatic Play used is what it is. I think it looks nice, but it’s another Asian theme and it really doesn’t stand out.
The gameplay does come with some fun features. Those Super Wilds that add extra wilds is a nice touch. Especially during free spins when they become sticky.
Of course you want a couple of them during free spins to really get some great wins. And for that you do need more than the minimum of 6 spins. But when you are able to get a high number of free spins, this bonus can really get some great wins.
Overall Dragon Hero is a good game. Maybe not a game that stands out, but very enjoyable.
