Another month, another fantastical adventure. This time, Big Time Gaming is taking its players on a truly stunning medieval adventure with Dragon Born. It’s the age-old legend of a rare individual, who is born with the blood and soul of a dragon. It’s this fiery and fantastical spirit that is the inspiration behind the Dragon Born slot. And fiery it is.
Dragon Born offers a whopping 50 extra spins! That’s a whole four minutes of hands-free gameplay, where money will just roll into your account with no effort on your part whatsoever. Add to that a jumbo serving of multipliers (up to 49x), two full reels of stacked wilds and a whole host of well-paying symbols. There’s no other slot out there that is as plentiful.
Before we get stuck into the Dragon Born review, allow me to give you a quick refresher course on slots. When choosing which game to play, always remember: the more reels there are in a slot, the more ways there are to win. Dragon Born is built with six reels and 117,649 ways to win! Yes, that’s no typo. On any spin, you could potentially collect cash off 117,649 different paylines. All you need to trigger payouts are at least three similar symbols on adjacent spaces on the board, starting from the left to right.
Dragon Born accepts bets from as low as 20p per spin. Depending on your risk appetite, you can then hike up your bet up to £40 per spin. This gives a nice range for you to test different betting strategies and take full advantage of the game’s features.
The reels are fit for a king. Goblets, shields, knights, queen and king, a mysterious woman in purple, a royal standard, red and blue gemstones and the most desirable of the lot—the dragon. None of the regular J, Q and K symbols here.
For starters, there’s the female jester, which acts as the game’s wild symbol. A stack of these symbols can fill an entire reel at a time—two reels if you’re lucky—and really amplify your takings. The math gives way to even bigger wins too. The game designers squish seven wild symbols into a column that is only five spaces high. That’s many more ways to rake in winnings!
As a cherry on top, the wild symbol also boosts each winning combination with multipliers. These can go as high as 7x per wild symbol. Two stacks of wild symbols and you’ll get an insane 49x multiplier on your win!
Not only are there a tremendous number of win ways in a slot, but there are a jumbo amount of extra spins on offer too. All you need are a bunch of diamond symbols:
- 3 scatter symbols: 6 extra spins
- 4 scatter symbols: 12 extra spins
- 5 scatter symbols: 25 extra spins
- 6 scatter symbols: 50 extra spins
There are so many reasons why the extra spins rounds are great. For starters, these games are played on 6×7 reels. In other words, you’ll be playing at the maximum number of ways to win ever. Trust me — you can really feel the cash roll in. Secondly, you can also get single and stacked wilds during the extra spins. Even extra spins can be re-triggered during the feature, to no limit!
The design team had a supremely tall order—the maths team literally swung round their desk and asked them to fit additional symbols onto a tiny mobile screen. Despite the added difficulty, the design team has done supremely well. The game is tastefully designed, especially when they could easily have cut down on details just to make stuff fit. Besides that, the game’s animations are also superbly smooth.
Dragon Born’s massive reel set is powered by Big Time Gaming’s trademark Megaways game engine. The studio has broiken new ground in industry by adding the most ways to win in slot machine history. Before its release, slot makers have only released games with few thousands of ways to win. This Megaways system allows up to 117,649 ways to win. This slot innovation is enabled by the unique arrangement of symbols on the reels. The reels are also dynamic, which means that there could be a different number of symbols on each reel on each spin.
Dragon Born is absolutely fortuitous at every turn. The win potential is simply massive! Both the base game action and the special features deliver big wins to your balance. The winnings are timed in a really satisfying way too. You could spin for a while with very little action. Then, all of a sudden, you’d get a huge rush of stacked wilds, extra spins and multipliers within a span of a few seconds. Your adrenaline just shoots through the roof! Very few slots are as enjoyable and rewarding to play as Dragon Born.
