Four Dragon Themed Pokies with Linked Progressive Jackpot Opportunities
Asian themed pokies seem to be all the rage in poker machine gaming, with developers more than happy to introduce more games with this popular theme. Aristocrat have gone one better by introducing the ‘Dragon Link’ series of games – four games in one. Within the set up you can play Golden Century, Happy and Prosperous, Panda Magic and Autumn Moon, all in one enormous game bank. Look up and you can see the progressive jackpot amount scrolling above all four pokies.
Reasons to Take a Seat at Dragon Link
With four games in one you’re sure to enjoy a nice range of variety including the following features:
Throughout gameplay in any of the four themes, golden coins can appear on the reels, usually stacked. These gold coins will usually contain a credit amount, although if you’re lucky some will contain one of the progressive jackpot amounts. To enter the ‘hold and spin’ feature you’ll need to hit at least six of these coins across the reels.
You’ll now be awarded a number of free spins, with all of the gold coins now held in place. Any additional gold coins which appear during these spins will also be frozen, while also enabling additional free spins.
At the end of the feature you’ll now collect all the coin amounts and the progressive jackpots you’ve collected along the way. You’ll win the ‘Grand Progressive Jackpot’, a nice five-figure pay, if you can fill all five reels with gold coins.
Each of the different have their own free spins features. When playing ‘Golden Century’ for example, you’ll find a series of doors appearing on the reels. At the end of each spin all of these doors will open to reveal the same matching symbol. All these matching symbols alongside any other instances of the symbol which appeared naturally can make for some amazing win opportunities.
In the ‘Happy and Prosperous’ theme, a golden, laughing Buddha symbol acts as the wild. Enter the free spins feature here and this wild will appear more frequently, giving more opportunity for those big multi-win line pays.
Whichever of the themes you play, you’ll find the same set up, featuring the popular 5×3 reel configuration. The number of win lines in play can vary from casino to casino, although these will always be in the 25 to 50 range. While many of the Dragon Link games at the casino will feature four pokies (with the four different themes) you can find smaller or larger set ups, with a mix of the different games in play.
With four separate titles, each of the games features its own range of symbols. For example, Panda Magic will feature Pandas, Tigers and Boats on the reels, while ‘Happy and Prosperous’ has a much larger focus on money, with pots and piles of gold coins and expensive rings.
The Dragon Link set up is one of the most impressive on the casino floor. With all the games lined up in a row, and the same linked progressive jackpots to be won, there can be a sense of community, or a sense of competition!
Each of the themes is well designed, with colour rich symbols filling the reels, with a lot of gold among the designs. Each of the games has an impressive central character too, be it the Panda, the Laughing Buddha, the Emperor in Golden Century or the Geisha Girl in Autumn Moon. Each of the games feature an enchanting Asian soundtrack too, a perfect fit.
Aristocrat have designed a quite unique and entertaining set of games in Dragon Link. The four different themes each have their own symbols and features, meaning you’re sure to find your favourite, while the linked features make the game what it is. With the ‘Hold and Spin’ feature on all four games, an instant cash boost is never far away – include a progressive Jackpot win in that boost and you’ll be sitting pretty. Fill the reels with those gold symbols and you’ll be over that Autumn Moon.
