Dragon Kings by Betsoft – Slot Machine Review
Dragon Kings, a slot machine that’s available via Betsoft Gaming, has been designed to show off the wonders of Ancient China, and some of its legendary creatures have managed to make room for themselves on its reels. There are some areas where Betsoft innovated in this slot, and I’d mention especially the 1-symbol reel that’s available on the 6th column.
As I’ve mentioned above, it’s a game with 5+1 reels, though winning combinations will form only on the first five, with the sixth used as a bonus. There are only 10 lines active in that game area. Dragon Kings has four progressive jackpots to offer, though only one of very high value. The game can deliver a maximum win of $280,753 in a single round, while $20,000 is the highest payout you can expect from a single combo. It’s going to be a feature rich environment, with about five different types of wilds, with multipliers, free spins and scatters.
On the betting side of things, you will find that there isn’t too much to worry about. You get 10 lines to work with, and you have to pick the amount that goes into each one, that’s it. You end up spending anywhere between $0.01 and $1 for a single line, with the total bet varying at the same time from $0.10 to $10.
Dragon Kings Jackpot
One potential payout to look forward to, the progressive jackpot can go into the five-figure range, so you might get enough money from this game to make a difference in your life. Three smaller jackpot values are also possible, and the smallest one gives you just a couple of hundred dollars.
Diamond Jackpot: requires the Dragon King + the 4 other Dragons + 6th reel Magical Pearl
Gold Jackpot: needs Dragon King + 3 Dragon Wilds + 6th reel Magical Pearl
Silver Jackpot: Dragon King + 2 Dragons + 6th reel Magical Pearl
Bronze Jackpot: Dragon King + 1 Dragon + 6th reel Magical Pearl
The fixed rewards could go up to 2,000x total bet with the right 5+1 symbols in the game, so up to $20,000 cash. The absolute highest win possible in a single round of Dragon Kings is 280,753 coins.
With the 95.20% RTP that’s been announced in Dragon Kings, there aren’t going to be a lot of people willing to give the slot a shot, but it’s not that far apart from the 96% average of most slots we see right now.
On the feature side of things is where we see the most variety, and it’s the part that should feel attractive to most. For starters, know that there is the option to trigger the main feature, if you’re willing to pay 44x the bet for this. The button is available in the bottom right corner.
6th reel Magical Dragon Pearls
These are symbols which may appear on the 1-symbol high 6th reel. Have it appear there at the right time, and it can double the free spins number or it can trigger a progressive jackpot.
Dragon King, Wild Symbol
The main wild symbol, out of the five available, will be this Dragon King. We see the Dragon colored in gold in it. It’s a 3rd reel only symbol, which will expand on that column. It also contributes to wins with its 2x multiplier. Once the Dragon King expands, it activates the Jackpot once, if the other requirements are met.
Everyone loves free stuff, and so this particular feature ends up being a favorite for most. Activating it in Dragon Kings is a matter of landing Dragon Pearl icons in scattered positions anywhere on the first five reels. They will get you 6, 10 or 15 rounds, the number doubling if there is a 6th reel Magical Dragon Pearl visible at the same time.
Dragons of the 4 Seas Wilds
The Dragon King is accompanied by four other types of Dragon Wilds, each one doing something different when it appears in the game.
Azure Dragon: gives you 1 re-spin, where Dragon wilds are locked in place.
Black Dragon: has a 3x multiplier for wins that involve it.
White Dragon: adds another White Dragon Wild to its right or left.
Red Dragon: pays a cash prize, worth up to 400x the line bet.
The legendary dragons of China are once again at the center of attention, this time in a very well designed Betsoft slot. We’ve seen this type of story enough times before, that it doesn’t feel all that exciting right now, but there is no denying that it’s a well made slot.
The graphics involve the sea in the middle of a storm in the background, while the red reels with golden borders host symbols with Royals in some positions, while more interesting images have fish, jade statues, pearls, dragons or gold coins.
Dragon Kings has a couple of very good arguments to make for itself, starting with the high-end graphics, its progressive jackpots, its many features or its unique 6th reel mechanic. Despite the RTP of just 95.20%, I’d still recommend you give it a try, it’s a fun game.
