You won't be surprised to learn that the subject matter for 1X2 Gaming's latest slot, Red Dragon, is the far east.  Online there is no shortage of slot games which have taken some sort of inspiration from China, or the orient more generally, and no wonder with it being such a vast and plentiful well to tap. Red Dragon is a great new addition to the ever-growing catalogue of games with this as their theme.  Red Dragon is a five-reel slot; it has three rows and players can choose to play with up to twenty-five paylines, giving you a bet range of between 5p and £270 per spin.

Our Verdict:

As mentioned above there is no shortage of oriental themed slot games, however, Red Dragon is a really good addition to this genre.  The game has some really nice graphics and is set against a blue haze backdrop with a Chinese temple framing the reels.  The sound effects also work really well and fit the theme perfectly.  Players will also really like the two great bonus features, a free spins game, and a dragon bonus game, both of which can result in some great wins, and with an RTP of 97.32% you can expect it to trigger quite regularly leading to plenty of opportunities to win.

Wild Symbol:

You have three special symbols, two of which trigger the bonus feature, and the third is the wild symbol. The wild symbol is the symbol which has the bearded warrior on it, and this symbol is special as it has the ability to substitute for all the standard game symbols, including the higher value theme symbols such as sushi and paper lantern and low value playing card symbols.  The wild will substitute for one of these standard symbols when it can to complete a combination to create a win.  The bearded wild can also create its own winning combinations when three or more land on a payline.

Dragon Bonus:

The first bonus feature that you can trigger on Red Dragon is the Dragon bonus.  This feature is triggered by the bonus symbol, which is the symbol with the colourful dragon on it.  To activate the feature simply land three or more on an active payline and you will be taken to a bonus screen with a dragon with sections missing.  The game will begin with balloons floating up, and you will have to click the balloons to stop them and to reveal what is inside.  Find the five missing dragon sections to win the top prize.

Free Spins:

The second and final bonus feature on Red Dragon is the free spins bonus.  This feature is triggered by landing three, four or five of the temple scatter symbol in view on the reels.  If you do that, you will be awarded between 10, 20 or 30 free spins depending on whether it was three, four or five temples scatter symbols which landed to trigger the bonus.  You will not have any multipliers for the free spins and landing three more of the temples won't re-trigger the feature.
