5 Dragons slot review
5 Dragons slot for online play is a replica of the land-based version carrying the same name. The maker of 5 Dragons, Aristocrat, have licensed the game online and it is available at a very limited number of online casinos. To play it you will also need to live in a country which Aristocrat allows online play - an unfortunate hurdle to play for some players.
On the reels...
This is a video slot with an oriental theme, displaying the classic red backdrop with gold detailing around each of the 5 reels. The symbols include dragons, goldfish and red packets with some hidden surprises, along with the standard A-K-Q-J-10 lower paying symbols. This online 5 Dragons slot includes the popular 'Reel Power' feature on the reels. This offers up to 243 ways to win, which sounds fantastic on paper, but it still feels pretty tough to win.
Choose Your Free Spins Bonus
Where 5 Dragons comes into its own in my experience is in the bonus round. You need 3 or more scatters starting from the first reel. When you do trigger the bonus, you will get to choose from 5 options, all with a different colour dragon as a wild. The more free spins you choose, the smaller your multiplier is when the wild forms part of a winning line. You then want to see that wild symbol as much as possible, and you will be rewarded with some very decent wins. There is also a bonus in the free spins when the red packet lands on reels 1 and 5. You can get a bonus up to 50x.
5 Dragons slot has all the hallmarks of a classic Aristocrat slot; addictive game play, recognizable theme and some chances to win big in the feature. It does have a loyal following in land-based casinos around the world, and you will often find the game hard to get on if you see it in the casino. It is very similar to other popular slots such as "God of Wealth" - Choy Sun Doa and the oriental-themed 50 Dragons,but it very much has its own following. Certainly worth a spin if you like your slots classic and volatile.Review by Gamingslots
