Eastern Dragon slot review
If the Oriental-themed slots from NextGen – including the Geisha-inspired Cherry Blossoms and the more hardcore Bangkok Nights – have got you in the mood for some slick online video slots madness (from NextGen) make sure you check out Eastern Dragon, the latest in the conveyor belt of Asian-themed games from the leading developer.
Pretty colors, crisp vector graphics and simple gameplay all ensure that Eastern Dragon – which underwent a tasty mobile makeover recently – will be bringing in the punters for some time to come.
Win a $60,000 Jackpot!
Bets start at just $0.01 a coin and go up to $2 in this 5 reel, 20 pay-line game, but there’s a tasty jackpot of $60,000 up for grabs if you manage to do well in the game’s only bonus round – a cheap and cheerful free spins bonus.
As well as the Eastern Dragon of the title, and a gold coin Scatter, on the reels we get Koi carp, lanterns, cracking fireworks, lotus blossom, and some vaguely Oriental-themed 9-through-Ace symbols. In short, all the icons you’d expect from an Asian-themed game, complete with lush red velvet backdrop on the main screen.
As with slot developer NextGen Gaming’s Asian-themed slot, Cherry Blossoms, which throws blossom into the air whenever you hit a winning combo, winning combinations in Eastern Dragon sees gold coins thrown into the air and some neat animation on the symbol spaces.
Win 15 Free Spins and a 3x Multiplier with the Wild Dragon
The dragon icon acts as the game’s Wild symbol, and multiplies every win by two. Hit the dragon on reels 1 and 5, however, and you’ll bag yourself 15 free spins wins with a 3x multiplier. The free spins can also be re-triggered during the bonus round.
If Eastern Dragon has got you in the mood for Oriental slots fun on the move, hunt out the aforementioned Cherry Blossoms in your local casino lobby, while OMI’s Chinese-themed slot, Benny the Panda, is also a worthy companion slot.
