The myth of the fire breathing dragon dates back hundreds of years, and the fascination that we humans have with these fantasy creatures shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. Dragon Lore is one more game that’s trying to bank on that love for huge death-dealing creatures, and it’s one of the Leander Games releases.
With the help of Dragon Lore’s 5 reels/20 lines, the player may expect wins of up to $100,000 to come their way. It’s a reward of up to 2,500x the stake, which I’d consider pretty good these days. The presence of the free spins with four types of extra features, of the reel bonuses coming from the dragon and of wilds will improve he game’s attractiveness considerably.
Betting and Prizes
A special button, with a couple of coins on it, will give you access to a new screen which has the betting options listed. The values that you may choose from vary between $0.20 and $40. For the 20 lines available, you get to spend as much as $2 for each one.
The game holds promise payout wise, and the rewards offered may reach a maximum value of 2,500x the stake (500x in the base game). That’s as much as $100,000 cash, the limit which the developer has placed. As for the RTP which tells you how well the game will fare in the long run, it’s at 95.96%, a decent number.
Dragon Lore Slot Features
Among the several features which the slot has, the Wild symbol is one of the easiest to spot, since it actually has its own logo as its image. They may be used as replacements for any other type of symbol, even the ones triggering free spins since they’re not scatters. Should you happen to land 5 wilds on a line, they will pay as much as the Dragon Lore icon, the one triggering the 25x jackpot.
The most interesting part of the slot’s features is actually the way it handles triggering the free spins. Rather than relying on a single scatter symbol, it will use the Gems icons, and for each one it will give you another type of feature. You need a combo of five matching Gems though, in order to reach that stage. If you get only a combo of three or four, then you win a regular cash reward instead.
Any of the four types of Gems will trigger 8 free spins when they have a 5-symbol combo formed. It’s just the extra feature that will be different.
The Yellow Lightning icons give you 8 Lightning rounds, with multipliers added to wild symbols once the reels stop spinning.
Blue Gems will deliver 8 Air Free Spins, and in their case the Dragon will blow several symbols away, to show wilds which are hidden underneath.
Green Gems take you to the 8 Earth Free Spins. 1+ reels can be transformed into wilds by the Dragon.
As for the Red Gems, they trigger 8 Fire Free Spins. The 1st reel can be burned and locked in its position by the dragon. Wilds and Dragon Lore icons are also burned and locked for the next three re-spins.
Ice Free Spins come via White Diamonds and they have the Dragon freeze wilds until the counter runs out.
The same features may come in the base game, via the same Dragon which acts during the free spins.
Theme & Design
Obviously, it’s going to be a dragon themed slot machine, and it will also use several gemstones and images related to lightning, air, earth, ice and fire. It’s a decent looking game, but I’ve seen better. Royals are also included among its symbols.
I think Dragon Lore will be highly enjoyable for many players, as a slot machine with a dragon theme and a 2,500x the stake jackpot.
