WMS’ Wicked Dragon Wilds Video Slot Review

Wicked Dragon Wilds: Demo

Game of Thrones has a lot to answer for. We’ve seen a glut of dragon-themed video slots hit the online casino shelves in recent months with WMS the latest to add to the collection with Wicked Dragon Wilds. This 5 reel, 20 payline game offers some unusual gameplay though. You’ll have the pick of 3 modifier wilds which become active every time they hit. Look out too for a free spin with a colossal wild and 3 potential progressive jackpot prizes. Stakes here range from between 20p and £100 per spin.

To the Castle

The design in Wicked Dragon Wilds takes players back to the Middle Ages. With a castle in the background, the symbols are set within stone blocks. As well as heart, diamond, club and spade symbols you’ll see an axe, a wand and an amulet. The royal emblem is the most lucrative standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 on a line for a payout of 2.5, 10 or 25 times your bet.

3 Different Modifier Wilds

The first decision you’ll have to make is which modifier wild to activate. There are 3 to choose from:

  • Sticky Wilds – all wilds that hit lock in position and a respin follows.
  • Respin Wilds – land a wild but no winner and the wild reel locks in place and the rest of the reels spin again. The respins keep on coming until you create a winning combination.
  • Spreading Wilds – each time a wild lands, a series of fireballs strike the reels. Any symbol that’s hit turns into a wild and a new payout consideration follows.

All wilds perform the usual substitution functions and pay 5, 25 or 50 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Firestorm Bonus feature – More Wilds

The Firestorm Bonus feature can trigger at random on any base game spin. A dragon flies across the reels leaving a trail of wilds. A payout consideration with the new wilds follows.

Free Spin with a Colossal Wild

It’s not often that a Free Spin Bonus feature includes just a single free spin but that’s what you’ll receive when you land the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. The wrinkle here is that the middle 3 reels will form a colossal wild on that free spin. This offers the chance to create some seriously big combinations.

Mega Drop Jackpots

You’ll also have the chance to land a potential progressive jackpot prize. The Minor, Major or Epic Jackpots pay up to £1,500, £20,000 or £200,000.

Original video slot

With its pick of wild modifiers and an unusual Free Spin Bonus feature, Wicked Dragon Wilds offers something rather different and it’s all the better for it. The design isn’t bad either. Add the Mega Drop jackpots and this is an enjoyable take on an increasingly popular theme. If you want dragons though, Dragon Born by Big Time Gaming (the first ever MegaWays title) is our clear winner.
