An Asian Themed Pokie with a Choice of Free Spins Features
Dragon’s Temple is one of a series of Asian themed pokies you’ll find in the IGT catalogue. As you might have guessed from the title, the game centres around a dragon. This dragon acting as the wild, always expanding to fill entire reels. The dragon comes in a series of five colours, meaning you have one dragon with chameleon abilities – or a series of dragon siblings who look remarkably similar apart from their skin tone! Maintaining the Asian theme, you’ll find a carp, an ancient dwelling, red and yellow fortune cards and a Ming vase on the reels too.
Features Galore in IGT’s Dragon’s Temple
The Yin and Yang symbol acts as the bonus scatter and appears on reels two, three and four only. Land two bonus symbols on a spin and you’ll win 50 coins but land the maximum three and 250 coins are yours as well as entry into the free spins feature.
You’ll now have a choice of the following three features:
15 Free Spins – During each spin, reel three will be completely wild.
10 Free Spins – During each spin, reels two and four will be completely wild.
5 Free Spins – During each spin, reels one, three and five will be completely wild.
This makes for a very interesting decision. Your best winning opportunities will come when you select the five spins with the three wild reels, with the potential for some huge wins. Balancing this, you’ll have fewer spins, making it high on risk / reward. At the other end of the scale, you can expect a series of potentially smaller wins if you choose the fifteen spins. This an ideal option for those who like to guarantee a pay out during a feature. The middle ground of the ten spins might be the chosen option for many.
Dragon’s Temple is a five-reel slot, each of the reels four symbols high. There are a total of 50 win-lines that pay from left to right, although players do have the option of playing just 10, 20, 30 or 40 win-lines.
The dragon is the most exciting symbol on the reels as it will expand to fill an entire reel, whichever colour it is. This expanding wild will substitute for any other symbol apart from Yin and Yang, ensuring increased winning opportunities. Land five wilds in a row and you’ll win 1,000 coins – with each reel expanding to fill with wilds, this will ensure this is paid 50 times, making for an incredible 50,000-coin win!
Next on the pay table is the title symbol which pays 1,000 coins for the maximum five (only 500 coins if a wild is used in the win). The temple, the fortune cards, the carp and the vase pay a top prize of 500, 400, 300 and 250 coins respectively. At the low end of the pay table you’ll find the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A.
The loading screen of this IGT pokie shows a mountain scene, with trees in pink blossom. This same scene is replicated behind the reels, the branches of the trees constantly in motion as they sway in the wind. The reels are light in colour with patterned edges surrounding each symbol. The best visuals in the game appear alongside the dragon who expands to fill the whole reel, turning it wild. A gentle traditional Asian theme tune plays throughout each spin, transporting you nicely to this ancient scene.
Dragon’s Temple from IGT is one of the more enjoyable Asian themed pokies you’ll find online. The base game has a relaxing feel at first, but the action quickly ramps up. Those expanding wild dragons can suddenly offer incredible pay outs, especially if you land more than one – with that potential 50,000-coin win always in the wings. The free spins feature adds strategy into the mix too – do you go all out for the biggest wins in just 5 spins?
