The visuals in Little Dragons might be cute but don’t be fooled, this 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from Novomatic is a volatile one. It comes with wilds that double or quadruple payouts and a bonus round that awards up to 50 free spins with wild multipliers than can send payouts rocketing by up to 25x. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 25p and £100 per spin.
With blossom trees and a valley in the background, you’ll see lower value royal symbols plus a pink fly and 3 colourful Chinese-style dragons spinning round the reels. The most rewarding of the trio is the purple dragon who’ll get you 32 times your bet if you land 5 on adjacent reels.
The black and white yin and yang symbol is the wild. It can hit on reels 2 and 4 only. When the wild forms part of a winning combination, the payout is doubled. 2 wilds in the same combination delivers a 4x multiplier boost.
The wilds can improve still further during the Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the gold ingot on adjacent reels on the same spin. You’ll first receive a payout of 5, 10 or 50 times your total bet. Also on offer are 15, 20 or 25 free spins.
Land a winner that includes a wild and it receives a 3x, 4x or 5x boost. Land wilds on reels 2 and 4 on the same winning free spin and the multipliers increase to 9x, 16x or 25x. Find 3 or more scatters on a free spin and you’ll retrigger the feature to give you up to 50 free spins.
Little Dragons is a typical Novomatic video slot. The design is a little more cutesy than you might expect but the gameplay is as simple and as volatile as ever with payouts of 5,000 times your bet on each 25x multiplier free spin.
This is a high variance game so expect some lengthy lean spells. Trigger the Free Games feature and hit a double wild win and Little Dragons can deliver some potentially spectacular action. If you like cutesy dragons, Microgaming’s Dragonz should appeal – you also have Novomatic’s Dragon’s Deep which is a very underrated and often overlooked title.
