ReelPlay’s Dragon 50,000 Video Slot Review

Traditional imagery combines with simple but potentially explosive gameplay in Dragon 50,000, a Chinese-themed video slot from ReelPlay. The action here takes place using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine. Highlights include wilds that double the payout when they form part of a winner and a free spins round where all payouts receive a 5x multiplier boost. Land a wild win during the free spins and the multipliers rocket to 10x. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 25p and £100 per spin.

There’s a very classy look to Dragon 50,000. As you’d expect from an Asian-themed video slot red and gold dominate the colour scheme. The deep red reels are framed within an ornate pagoda style building. As well as the usual lower value royal values you’ll see firecrackers, lanterns and coins spinning around the reels. The best of the standard symbols is the gold pot. Land 5 of these on a payline and you’ll receive a 30 times bet payout.

Those standard winnings can get a big boost courtesy of the golden dragon which is the wild. Any standard symbol win that includes a wild gets a 2x multiplier boost which doubles the payout. The wild can be extremely rewarding in its own right too. A 3, 4 or 5-symbol combination made up solely of wilds results in a payout of 16, 80 or 400 times your bet.

Potentially even bigger rewards are up for grabs in the Free Spins feature. It’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the pearl scatter on the same spin. A payout of 5, 25 or 400 times your bet ensues followed by 10 free spins. All wins in the free spins round get boosted by a 5x multiplier.

If that win includes a wild, then the multiplier reaches an enormous 10x. The perfect combination is to land 5 in a row made up entirely of scatters or wilds. You’ll then be in line for a massive award of 50,000 coins – or 2,000 times your bet.

ReelPlay has kept things relatively simple here and the gameplay works well. The wild multipliers give the game a real kick though, especially in the free spins round. We found the action here pretty volatile so be warned. If you get the maximum win available, it’s a whopping 50,000 times your bet (with the 10x multiplier)

The Chinese theme remains a hugely popular one. With its classy sound and visuals and explosive gameplay Dragon 50,000 is a simple but entertaining example of why this theme remains a firm fan favourite.
