Phoenix and the Dragon slot review
Phoenix vs Dragon
Phoenix and the Dragon is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that has a definite manga feel to its style. The whole theme is based on the legends of the phoenix and the dragon which are two phenoms from the world of mythology.
Symbols across the reels include the phoenix, the dragon, the Chinese symbol for fire, the Chinese symbol for water, and then the regular 9-through-to-Ace symbols that are presented in an array of different colours.
The Ying Yang Wild
The Wild symbol is represented by a really cool Ying and Yang symbol. It substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Scatters, on this slot to help complete any winning combinations that might appear across the reels.
Watch Out for the Scatter Pays
The Scatters are represented by the Pheonix and the Dragon logo. These symbols pay in any position and any wins achieved through these symbols are multiplied by the total wager placed by you as the player.
Back the Phoenix or the Dragon
Seeing as this slot is all about the phoenix and the dragon then you will not be surprised to hear that you will need to hit the phoenix and the dragon at the same time on reels 1 and 5 in order to trigger the Phoenix and the Dragon feature. Once triggered, you will be asked to pick either the phoenix or the dragon to win the fight. If you pick the phoenix and the phoenix wins then you will win 8 free spins and trigger the Phoenix Free Spins. If you pick the dragon and the dragon wins then you will win a 2x multiplier and trigger the Dragon Cloud feature.
Earn up to 8 Free Spins with Wild Reels
If you trigger the Phoenix Free Spins then you will be given the free spins and there is also the phoenix present on the reels that will randomly turn reels Wild. Up to three reels can be turned completely Wild on reels 2 to 4.
Pick Your Wins in the Dragon Clouds
If you trigger the Dragon Cloud feature then you will be taken to a second screen where you will need to pick from a selection of clouds. Each cloud will reveal a cash prize until you reveal a “Collect” symbol.
This slot is one that took me by surprise. I was not expecting too much because other than big brand slots Microgaming have disappointed me recently. However, I am always more optimistic when they link up with Genesis Gaming and this slot is a fair crack. This is on a level with Microgaming's very own Asian Beauty.
