If you’re searching for an online slot machine with a Chinese theme then it’s fair to say that you don’t have to look very far; there are absolutely loads of them of varying quality – you can see our top five by clicking here – but one more is always welcome, especially if it adds something to the genre. Dragon 8’s is from Amaya Gaming and it certainly looks good but read on to find out more.
Dragon 8’s plays out over five reels and twenty paylines; as befits an oriental slot those reels are set against the sides of a traditional Chinese structure. In the background there’s a landscape full of green fields and snow-capped mountains.
The symbols are all nicely drawn and related to the theme; they include four different coloured ‘8s’ with dragons coiled around them, a Koi carp, a wading bird, a panda and stylistic dragon’s head.
A Chinese lantern is the bonus symbol, a blue mask is the wild and the scatter is represented by a golden fan.
Those lantern bonus symbols are the key to this feature and you must land three or more anywhere to trigger it. Manage that and you will be shown six lanterns – pick one and it will determine the number of spins (4 – 7). Then pick one of the six coins which will reveal the multiplier (3x – 6x).
The spins will now start automatically and hopefully it will be profitable for you. Unfortunately it’s not possible to re-trigger the spins from within this feature.
The wild will pay an impressive 5000x your line stake for five on an active payline but even having just one contribute to any winning combo will multiply that win by 2x.
This is certainly one of the better Chinese slots; the sound effects may not be much to write home about but we like the high quality graphics and the free spins feature.
