Free Dragon Horn slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Dragon Horn slot by Thunderkick is another colourful game from this Swedish developer and like many slots has a medieval theme in cartoon format, quite like IGT's Medieval Money and Play'n Go's Royal Masquerade although I would liken it more to Netent's Excalibur if it had more adult-like symbols. Here we get a delightful medieval village as the background with matching lute and lyre music to make the mood as we spin the reels full of items and characters from the period. Can we earn some gold here in these rich pastures or will our bankroll be reduced to a few groats?
Unusually for Thunderkick we have a 243-way slot here of 5 reels and 3 rows each meaning no fixed paying lines but wins for 3 or more symbols on adjacent reels left to right. Symbols are both stacked or single and the single Wild only appears on the last 4 reels so the 5-of-a-kind pays begin with the Dragon at 20x bet, Queen 10x, Knight 5X, Archer 3.5x, Wise Man 3x and the Troll at 2.5x. No card values for a change as the lower five symbols are Shields with various symbols on them ranging from 2x down to 1x for a full line. Horn scatters are on all reels too and have no pay.
On all reels you may see a glowing white ball which is the Dragon Fire mystery icon appearing singly or in stacks. It will reveal the same icon wherever appearing including the Wild and Horn scatters but not the 5 lower Shield icons which is good news!
You can collect 3 Horn scatters anywhere in view for 7 free spins. Every scatter over 3 will award 2 extra spins for your trigger, so when those Mystery Dragon Fire icons land stacked and transform to the scatter, you will likely be starting with 9, 11 or even 13. Each Horn scatter in the bonus will add to a meter of 3 on the left above the reels and award 1 extra spin. Once you reach 3, the lowest Shield symbol will transform to the Dragon Fire mystery icon on the reel strips. As we know, this can only transform into the Wild or high-paying symbols but in free games not the scatter, as it can in the base game. Every time you get to 3 on the meter the next Shield symbol becomes Dragon Fire mystery and so-on. If you're lucky you'll transform all 5 Shield symbols for some big win chances, as Thunderkick claim you can win up to 8,282x bet in this bonus!
Dragon Horn slot isn't bad despite the rather corny and juvenile first impressions as it packs a serious punch for a non-too serious theme. You get a 96.10% RTP and those Mystery icons come in useful in the base game for some often decent wins in the tens times-bet. Aside from the graphics, the animations and sounds are the usual high Thunderkick standard and don't forget that enormous potential you have in the free games, which do get exciting once you've converted 3 or more Shields to Mystery Dragon Fire icons. I should be back in this village some time soon for some more medieval mayhem...
