Free Eye of The Dragon slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Eye of The Dragon slot is not a game I'll over-elaborate upon for reasons that will shortly become apparent. Let it suffice to say that we get basic Novomatic graphics along with the familiar 'wheedle and trot' sounds as the reels spin and stop, with a fantasy theme (and not an Oriental one as the name may suggest). The dark forest background would have been better served with transparent reels but then again Novo have always concentrated more on the game mechanic than appearance which is absolutely the case here. Will this dragon prove to be one in the eye for our bankroll though?
A straightforward grid of 5 reels and 3 rows accommodates our 10 paying lines here and all icons are single. The lower three card values pay 10x bet for 5-of-a-kind, the higher two 15x and the Tiger or White Horse 75x. The best pays are the Warrior at 200x and the Huntress at 500x, values which may already be familiar to you! The Wild is of course the Dragon's Evil Eye and also acts as the game's scatter. Now you simply MUST know where we are going with this!
So we need three or more scatters anywhere in view to trigger the free games. Just in case you didn't recognize the distinctive Dragon's Eye, Novomatic have thoughtfully overlaid it with a big 'WILD SCATTER' badge by the way. Having triggered 10 free games (yes, you've guessed it!) the animation will flick through all the normal paying symbols and select one to become an Expanding Scatter during the free spins, which effectively means any table pays are multiplied 10x. You can retrigger this but unlike Book of Ra Magic, you don't get an additional symbol but retain the same one for 10 further spins. A volatile bonus which can pay very well.
Eye of The Dragon slot is simply a clone of the classic Book of Ra Deluxe and Novomatic, do we really need yet another? They already have Angry Birds, Golden Prophecies, Mermaid's Pearl, Mighty Trident and that's just under half of them! The one good thing here is the RTP, which on previous versions sits at a shade over 95% whereas here we get 96.12% which only just shy of the more favourable Book of Dead from Play'n Go which pays 96.21%. It's a proven popular game mechanic so will see play at casinos almost certainly but I definitely won't need to keep an eye on this dragon in future...
