Legends come alive in Dragon Island, a story about one of the most used creatures in legends and myths; the dragon. Dragon Island sends you a variety of fire spitting reptiles, so typical for these myths and perfectly suitable for breath taking graphics as shown on the symbols spread over the five reels. Fearsome and horrific could both apply for the majestic beasts used for Dragon Island, while innovation perfectly fit the extra features. Wilds, Golden Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins will keep you captivated while a Win Both Ways feature can be activated, responsible for many extra winnings.
Earth, Wind, Fire and Water
While the Dragon Island theme speak for itself, it seems that Earth, Wind, Fire and Water served as another inspiration to the designers at Net Entertainment as all dragons stand for one of these four elements of earth. A fantasy based theme lends itself perfectly for a video slot designed by Net Entertainment as we’ve seen before in video slots such as Trolls, Elements and Evolution. They all have one thing in common as cutting-edge graphics are decorating the reels and while the reels move, the background keeps on showing the living environment of the dragons. Once Free Spins are activated, you will be delighted with some amazing graphics, especially when a Wild takes over a complete reel and becomes an Expanding Wild.
At first there are 15 bet lines that form the basis of the game and even though you can choose to activate just one bet line, I always recommend to activate all bet lines as this will definitely increase your chance to win. More winning combinations will be made when all bet lines are activated. Choose to play in level one and with the lowest coin value and your bet will start at 0.15, however this amount can differ depending on the currency you’ll play with at the Netent Casino of your choice. Increase your total bet steadily due to ten different levels and six different coin values up to 0.50. Playing the total bet every spin will cost you 150.00, perfect for those players who prefer high risk bets such as high rollers.
Although Dragon Island hasn’t been completed with a bonus game, this Netent video slot has a lot to offer. Not only the high amount of Free Spins to be won, but certainly the many Wild variants Dragon Island is hiding in both, the main game and during Free Spins. The common Wild, which appears quite often and replaces all other regular symbols except Scatter and Golden Wilds, will be seen very regularly. Less common is the Golden Wild (Both Ways Win) and Expanded Wild (Free Spins) which I will tell you all about later on.
Win Both Ways
As mentioned before, Dragon Island offers you an extra way to make a winning combination. Usually winnings go from left to right, but when the ‘Win Both Ways’ feature has been activated, winnings will also go from right to left. Like this you can actually double your chances to win big. While Dragon Island was the first video slot created by Netent featuring the Both Way Win feature, this slot got company of the Fisticuffs video slot. By activating Win Both Ways and receiving five symbols in a row, you automatically double the current bet and play for a x2 payout.
Apart from the ‘Win Both Ways’ feature, Dragon Island breathes extra fire by offering you three different Wild substitution variations including the famous Golden Wild appearing when the ‘Win Both Ways’ feature is activated and possibly increases the wins up to x8. No Scatter is substituted by the Golden Wild, but all other symbols are, resulting in more winning combinations and extra high winnings due to the x2-x8 Multiplier attached to the Golden Wild.
In addition to all this Wild glory, Dragon Island also features the very popular Free Spins, triggered by three or more animated Scatter symbols. Not only the Scatter mountain erupts fire, so is the Free Spin feature, especially when all five Scatters show up and 50 Free Spins are activated. Dragon Island is just one of the few video slots, besides Wild Rockets, Demolition Squad and EggOMatic, that offers you such a high amount of Free Spins. Though 10 Free Spins will be offered when three Scatters appear while four Scatters triggers 20 Free Spins. And if not enough Free Spins already, the third Wild variation appears during Free Spins taking over a whole reel as an Expanding Wild. And I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed in both, Free Spins and its Expanded Wild feature, as winnings can rise sky high.
Dragon Island is an unique and innovative video slot game that will interest not only fantasy lovers, but everyone who likes video slots in general but most of all the generous ones. Try your luck in Dragon Island and see for yourself how sky high your winnings can go thanks to the many Wilds and amazingly high amounts of Free Spins to be won. With so many ways to win, you won’t be able to resist taking a spin on Dragon Island.
