Electric Elephant Gaming, which is powered by Microgaming, brings players a Chinese-themed slot game. The Chinese dragon theme is popular because dragons are known to bring with them good luck and good fortune, something we all want when playing slots. While there are a large number of Chinese-themed slots, this one is a little different with five reels and five rows. Wins play from the leftmost reel towards the right. If there is more than one win on a single pay line, only the highest win pays. When there are wins on two or more pay lines, all pay.
Dragon Strike has free spins with multipliers that bring with them extra winning opportunities. The game has three expanding wilds that expand vertically, horizontally, and to all the adjacent symbols. Dragon Strike plays on five reels with five rows, and 40 pay lines. You can place bets from as little as 0.20 per spin up to 100 per spin. The high upper betting limit makes this game good for both high and low rollers. The game is easy to play. Simply spin the reels, and pick the Turbo option if you want them to spin faster. Choose the Auto button to set Auto Play spins where the software spins the reels for you.
Dragon Strike is a high variance slot game, which means you might not win so often, but some of the wins will be big. It is possible to win up to 75,000 coins in a single spin. The RTP (return to player) is a little on the low side at 95.11%. Keep an eye open for the free spins round and the expanding wilds which help create more and better wins.
Wild symbols appear on the second, third, and fourth reels. They can, however, expand onto the first and fifth reels. There are four different wild symbols in the game.
The following wilds appear on the reels:
Some important points about the wilds that appear on the reels in the Dragon Strike slot game:
When you see three free spins scatters on reels one, three, and five, they trigger the free spins round. This triggers eight free spins. While the free spins symbols trigger the free spins, they do not have any pay out value themselves. The free spins in the Dragon Strike slot game do not re-trigger. The free spins play out at the same betting level that was played for the triggering bet. Expanding wilds stick to the reels during the free spins rounds, creating the chance for bigger payouts from free spins than from regular spins.
You can play the Dragon Strike slot game while you are at home on your PC or laptop, or while you are on the go. Mobile play is convenient and easy. Since the game looks just as good on your mobile device as it does on your PC, you may choose to play on your mobile even when you are at home. Play this game on your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or Android tablet devices.
Dragon Strike is available on your mobile device’s browser, which means you do not need a special app to play this slot. Simply go to your chosen casino, log in, and head to the games lobby. Select the Dragon Strike icon by tapping it, and it will open in your browser. Choose your betting level and spin the reels.
There are many slots with a Chinese theme, which makes the symbols somewhat similar. Slots need to have special features that make them stand out. Dragon Strike has done just this with its 5x5 slots grid. In addition to this, we really like the expanding wilds feature, which is even better when they appear as sticky wilds during free spins.
Unfortunately, the game has a somewhat lower than average RTP, which means that overall, the returns on the game are lower than we would like. It is, however, possible to get decent wins, especially when the expanding wilds show up on the reels. We miss the gamble feature and feel the game would be improved with a progressive jackpot. Overall, this game is worth a try.
