If there’s one thing we’ve never said, it’s “we need more oriental online slots” but no one seems to listen and so here we have another to add to the list. It’s developed by Microgaming, it’s called Dragon Dance and it’s actually all about the Chinese New Year. It includes a free spins round, the opportunity to respin individual reels and it’s all explained below.
Dragon Dance is a five reel slot with three rows and 243 way to win; the usual payline structure is replaced by a system in which all you have to do is land matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the left hand side. The reels spin underneath a temple roof while in the background we can just about make out Chinese lanterns floating off into the hazy red sky.
There are five theme-related symbol and these include the dragon mask, the dragon costume, two dancers, a drummer and girl with some cymbals. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The Dragon dance logo is wild and will substitute for all others except the scatter symbol – that’s represented by the Chinese cracker logo and it’s the key to the main feature.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Chinese cracker scatter symbols anywhere in view; manage this and you will receive 15 free spins during which all your wins will be tripled. That’s not all however and you’ll be delighted to discover that the spins can be retriggered by landing more scatter symbols.
We’ve seen this feature before on a handful of Microgaming slots and it offers players the ability to pay to respin any one reel following a spin. The spin will cost money of course and that amount is proportionate to the likelihood and value of a win.
Play Dragon Dance or Microgaming’s other recent release Bikini Party and you’re essentially playing the same game with a different skin. If you’re fine with that then this is a playable-enough game with the interesting respin feature and some lucrative free spins.
