Dragon Dance Slot review
Dragon Dance is a recent release from Microgaming, a slot machine with a Chinese theme that seems to be heavily inspired by the events which take place during the Chinese New Year celebrations. You have actors performing, dragon costumes, girls with music instruments, firecrackers and so on. The game is a title which has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Top payouts are worth $200,000, with the right wager.
You get half of the symbols with themed images on them, while the other half are simple poker cards. The themed symbols are mostly with people that are performing for you, one way or another. One of them is in a dragon costume, another has musical instruments, a couple seem to be actors with heavy makeup, and then there are symbols like the scatter with the firecrackers on it.
The slot can get expensive, but only if you allow it. It has bets of up to $1,250 per spin, with the 25 virtual lines requiring up to $50 each one (using 10 coins of $5, which is the highest setting you can pick).
The presence of 3, 4 or 5 Firecracker scatter icons will trigger the round with 15 free spins, where all the wins are tripled in value. You can retrigger them, with the same three or more symbols. Payouts of up to 100x the triggering bet value are offered along the free spins feature.
The Dragon Dance Logo is the wild in this game. It is given to the player on the 2nd and the 4th reels, and from there it can substitute for other symbols, as long as they’re regular ones.
The final feature to talk about here, and one of the more interesting ones, is called a Respin. It gives you the choice of a reel that you want to respin each round, as long as you’re willing to pay for it. Use it to complete a combo, when the rest of the symbols are in place.
