Red Dragon

For slot players that love an oriental theme, you certainly have plenty of options. We have played many over the years so we thought we would have a bash at the latest effort from 1X2 Gaming.

It is called Red Dragon, and it take us on a trip to ancient China by the looks of things. This five reel slot offers players a chance to win some big jackpots by spinning the reels which contain lots of Chinese imagery. If tales of fortune and formidable dragons sound like fun to you, then this could be the slot game you are seeking. We have all the details below.

Our Verdict:

This is a worthy addition to the slot market and definitely one of the better oriental slots that we have played. The bonus rounds are a fun addition, and the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable. We like the five-reel structure, and there are twenty-five paylines which mean there are plenty of ways to win on this version. You can play for free until you are ready to bet with real money and stakes begin from just 5p and rise all the way up to a massive £270 so take care when placing bets. Overall, it's worth a few spins so check it out if you fancy it.

Wild Symbol:

There is a wild symbol present on this game and it substitutes for most other symbols on the reel to complete lines wins and help players pick up more winning combinations. For this game, the wild symbol is the bearded warrior with the word "WILD" underneath him so you cannot miss him. He appears quite often and really helps build up your balance. Additionally, there is a small temple symbol that acts as the scatter and another bonus icon which is a colourful dragon character. These are all the bonus symbols available so keep an eye out for them.

Bonus Game:

This is triggered by the big red dragon bonus symbol that was mentioned above, and if you land it three or more times then you will be transported to the bonus round screen. You are allocated some lives depending on how many of the symbols you trigger and your objective is to click on the balloons that rise from the bottom of the screen. The balloons contain prizes, and the biggest prize is earned by completing 5 dragon segments. Finding a heart will remove one of your lives, and the feature will end when you have no more lives left.

Free Spins:

This feature is popular among players and increases the length of the game when free spins are won. The free spins bonus round on Red Dragon is activated by the temple scatter symbols, and there are 10, 20 or even 30 free spins on offer if you can land 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively. It is straightforward, and there are no additional multipliers. We found that these landed quite often, though, which is pretty cool and will save you depositing further funds.
