Graphics and Visuals
A dark, mystical fantasy world that could come straight from a blockbuster movie is the backdrop to an intricate game window. Flanked by carved columns, it is dominated by the four ferocious looking dragons. A brooding, suspenseful soundtrack will keep you on edge throughout a slotting session.
Open the game to find the card royals from 10 to A at the low end, paying 0.50x to 0.70x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed in ascending order by opaque, green, blue and red dragons. Hit five on a line to win 2x to 5x your bet. An intricate tile with smouldering lava is the wild and most valuable symbol, awarding 20x your stake for a 5OAK.
The wild appears stacked at all times and can nudge up or down to fill the entire reel. Occasionally, it will nudge an additional position to move a golden dragon egg into view. The egg is the scatter symbol that will trigger either cash prizes, free spins or the jackpot wheel. It will turn into a wild symbol for the current spin after the prize above the reel has been awarded.
Extra Reel and Random Multipliers Explained
Dragons of the North comes with a display on top of each reel that will change on every spin in the base game and bonus round. During the base game only those on top of reels one, three and five are active, while those for reel two and four will be activated during the free spins round only. They contain a range of prizes which will be awarded when a golden dragon egg scatter lands on the respective reel. You can win multiple prizes in a single spin when more than one golden egg lands on the reels.
- Cash Prize – an instant coin win of up to 100x your bet
- Free Spins – triggers 10 free spins. The displays above reels 2 and 4 are unlocked and contain only the jackpot icon for more chances to win a spin on the Jackpot Bonus Wheel. Two extra free spins are awarded each time an egg lands on reels one, three or five and the free spins icon is displayed on top.
- Jackpot Wheel – gives you one spin on the Jackpot Bonus Wheel for a guaranteed jackpot win. The Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpots will pay 15x, 35x, 250x and 1,000x your stake respectively.
There is one more kicker on this slot that can make quite a difference to your potential reel prizes. On any spin, the ice dragon can awake and breath across the game window to award a random multiplier of x2, x3, x5 or x10 for the cash prizes on top of the reels. However, standard line wins will not be multiplied. Getting a 100x bet cash prize in the displays and the x10 multiplier would award the top win of 1,000x bet.
The fantasy and dragon themes are extremely popular and that does not seem to change anytime soon. There is rarely a week going by without a new slot being announced that features the fire-spewing creatures, the question is only whether they are worth spinning the reels on.
The Dragons of the North slot is a solid effort from Pariplay with crisp graphics and well-executed animations. The features are nothing new but the way they are triggered is certainly not the usual. The meter with the extra prizes on top will keep you in suspense at all times, and especially when multipliers come into play. We played hundreds of spins and never triggered the jackpot bonus game. Seems like it isn’t an easy feat.
