Get ready to summon three fiery dragons on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming, released as part of the LeoVegas Originals. Do not be fooled by the lack of a free spins round or a bonus game as the Mega Dragon slot will surprise you with three features associated with the dragons that can lead to wins of up to 3,888 times your bet. The game is also part of the Red Tiger Jackpot slots with four different progressive jackpots.
Mega Dragon is an 8×7 grid slot with 56 symbols cascading into view on every spin. Pays are awarded for clusters with minimum five vertically or horizontally adjacent matching symbols. Any winning combinations will be removed and new symbols drop into place. The spin sequence continues until no new winning clusters land after a cascade.
Your quest to wake the dragons will cost you from 0.10 to 20 credits per spin. The game can be played on desktop and mobile devices across all OS platforms. The RTP of this medium to high variance game is set at 96.19%.
Graphics and Visuals
Considering how many slots from Red Tiger Gaming have an Asian theme, might make you think right now that they must have a love affair with it, and especially with dragons who play a large role in Chinese mythology. Well, it looks like the love affair is continuing as we can add now another game to the list. However, it is a rather strange format which to our surprise worked pretty well once we started playing Mega Dragon.
Mystical rock formations can be seen in a misty background while a traditional entrance in pagoda style holds the giant game window. A serene Asian soundtrack is dramatically interrupted when the dragons appear in a spin.
The theme is perfectly executed on the pay symbols. Card royals from 10 to A in Chinese writing style are at the low end, paying 3x to 7.5x your stake when you hit a cluster of 25 or more matching symbols. They are followed by banners, pearl ornaments, lucky coin sets and golden ingot Yuan Baos. Pays for clusters of 25 or more symbols increase to 10x to 44x times your bet.
A golden dragon head is the wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols. There are not scatters or bonus symbols on the reels, but you will have jackpot symbols appearing that will be the key to winning one of the progressives.
Mega Dragon Slot Features
The game does not have a free spins round nor a bonus game but that shouldn’t serve as a deterrent. It comes with three wild features that trigger when two wild symbols land vertically or horizontally adjacent on the grid. This can be at any time at the start of the spin sequence or after you hit a winning cluster cascade.
Wilds are also created when you hit winning clusters with premium symbols. One of the removed symbols will turn into a wild symbol and will stay on the screen until it is part of another winning cluster. All wilds are removed when a spin sequence ends.
The features will trigger after wins from the current cascade have been paid but before the win evaluation of a fresh cascade. Three wild modifiers are on offer, each associated with one of the dragons. They will emerge majestically from within the wild symbols and fly across the reels to apply their feature. One of the three dragons is randomly chosen on each trigger.
- Green Dragon: the dragon will randomly select one of the low-value card royals and turn it into a high-value symbol. A new payout evaluation then follows.
- Golden Dragon: this dragon adds a random number of extra wilds on to the grid. Again, a new win evaluation is made with the extra wilds in position.
- Red Dragon: the dragon flies across the reels and randomly picks one of the premium symbols which he then turns in to a 2×2 That symbol is then expanded and turned into a 2×2, 3×3 or even 4×4 mega symbol.
Red Tiger managed yet again the feat to create a slot that is entertaining to play but comes without free spins or bonus games. The three modifiers trigger often enough to make this a fast-paced game that can pack quite a punch when consecutive wild feature happen within a spin sequence.
