If you like dragons and if you like all things cute, you are going to love one of the newest titles from Microgaming. Dragonz is a fantasy-inspired online slot machine that makes the imagination soar. The animations and graphics are all very clear and colourful, giving the game a kind of cartoony appeal.
Betting in Dragonz is similar to betting in most of Microgaming’s 243-way slots, in that the paylines are fixed and players are free only to adjust the coins that are played for every spin. For Dragonz, every coin is multiplied by forty, which means that this particular game can get pretty expensive for those who enjoy a higher profile game.
The Wild symbol in this game is very standard and basic, but many other very interesting possibilities are unlocked in the various Free Spins modes. The Wild does not replace the Scatter symbol, but it can take the place of all other symbols in the game.
Scatter symbols can show up anywhere on the reels to activate the Free Spins mode, but it does not come during Free Spins, which means that there is no reactivation during the free spins themselves. Once three or more Scatter symbols show up, a choice is given to the player of four different Free Spins modes. Being able to choose between modes is a lot of fun because it can take you some time to try out everything the game has to offer, making it easier to enjoy for a longer period.
One choice of Free Spins that comes up is called “Flint” free spins. In this mode, Flaming Wilds show up in increasing numbers with every free spin. By the time your round is over, just how many Flaming Wilds will you have? The potential here is huge, as getting several of them on reels that count as high as these do can make for some incredible combinations.
Another mode is called “Switch”. In this mode all the Stashed Wilds that do not make up a winning combination are stashed away until they reach a breaking point. When there are enough of them, they are randomly released back onto the reels.
“Frost” free spins come complete with Wilds that freeze onto the reels. So long as they are not a part of a win, they remain where they've landed until they do make up part of a combination.
The final possible free spins mode is called “Gobble” free spins. These feature Winning Wilds, which stay on the reels as long as they keep winning.
Dragonz is a wonderful game that everyone should try at least once. Even if it doesn’t seem to you that you would like it, the gameplay and fun features might just change your mind. It isn’t every day that you find four separate Free Spins modes, each focused on a different type of Wild. The Wilds make this game unique and a pleasure to play.
