Until now, IGT was an exception to that rule. But with their most recent release, Dragon Sphere, the casino software developer has decided to deliver its first dragon-themed slot, and it has debuted at online casinos this week.
A Taste Of Asia
The new Dragon Sphere slot dishes out more than just dragons. It is more than a fantasy-themed game; it is immersed in Asian culture with the imagery it presents.
IGT has placed the spotlight on Chinese dragons with this release, along with all the culture that surrounds these mythical creatures.
The game plays out over 5 reels and 50 paylines, and it could be classed as a medium variance offering.
Players can expect to spin the reels at relatively cheap rates, and the prizes are worth up to 750 coins per payline. Total prizes can be worth up to 400x per bet with this slot, which features a return-to-player rate somewhere between 95.6% and 96.2%.
The Dragon Features
There are goodies to be won. Wild symbols appear in the form of golden spheres which can switch out all but the scatter icons that appear as chests.
These wilds can also rest atop the reels, dropping down a single icon at a time before disappearing. Any wild landing atop a dragon can transform neighbouring icons into other wilds.
With 3+ treasure chests, a round of free spins is triggered, with anything up to 20 spins. Players will notice the ‘free falls’ gameplay continues through this round. There is also a click-and-win ‘Awaken Dragon’ round, though this costs a little extra.
Where To Play
Dragon Sphere stands as a nice offering, though it falls short of some of the more impressive Asian/dragon-oriented slots. You should be able to find it at any online casino offering IGT slots as it makes its debut through June 2019 and beyond.
