Is the Game of Thrones buzz still alive with you? If so, while waiting for the next season of the amazing show, try out the Dragon’s Treasure slot by Merkur Gaming (Edict) as it features a similar theme – medieval chivalry, mystic lands and dragons.
There’s a bit of darkness to it, but it kind of goes with the theme. You can’t go around slaying dragons while wearing a tutu and have butterflies flying left and right. It’s a grim ordeal, but also brave and adventurous, which contributes to the appeal of the Dragon’s Treasure slot. Dragons are, in fact, beasts, and to defeat the beast you need to go into its dark cave and go out with his precious treasure.
The visuals in Dragon’s Treasure slot aren’t exactly high-definition. Compared to some of the latest NetEnt or Microgaming slots, Merkur can’t really compete with this release, but the colours are nicely matched and the design is solid – it still succeeds in conveying the medieval atmosphere. They even picked the appropriate font.
The game plays out fast so you need to keep your eyes open and focused on the screen; there are 5 reels and 3 rows, and a total of 5 pay lines. It’s a big reel grid, and the symbols are placed a bit on your face – just so you don’t miss any of the action. Low-value symbols are playing card icons 10, J, Q, K and A. For bigger payouts, you’ll have to line up other symbols such as the knight, his companion, the sword and the treasure chest.
Instead of two special symbols, Dragon’s Treasure only has one, the dragon’s menacing head. The dragon is the Wild and the Scatter at the same time; it replaces all the other symbols and triggers the bonus feature.
Here you are, outsmarting dragons instead of being a blacksmith or a farmer. Well, what can you do…? Spin the reels and see what happens! Onward! The longer you play the bigger the chances of triggering the main feature, the free spins round.
If you manage to land three or more dragon Scatter/Wild symbols on a paying line you’ll initiate the free spins bonus where you get to play 10 times free of charge. The round comes with a twist, though. Before you start with your first free spin, the game will give you a choice of symbols. Pick one, and if you form a winning combination with the chosen symbol the entire reel where it landed will transform into that symbol. So, we have free spins with an expanding symbol, and that amount to bigger wins any day of the week.
Merkur Gaming also included a Gamble feature, which allows you to choose between a card game and a skill-based ladder-climbing game. But this one is optional, and available after every winning spin; as you know, chances are 50:50 to double or lose your winnings. Dragon’s Treasure slot may not be as sophisticated as some other slots, but it has boldness and creative features – it’s certainly worth a shot.
