Mega Dragon Slot Review
The good people of Red Tiger Gaming recently released a brand new video slot themed after traditional China. Mega Dragon is an 8-reel, 7-row video slot that benefits from cluster pays. Land a cluster of 5 or more matching symbols to start winning payouts. There are no free spins on the offer, but there is a chance to wake up three sleeping Dragons, simply by landing two Wilds on adjacent positions. The Golden Dragon will add Wilds, the Green Dragon will clone symbols, while the Red Dragon turns symbols into Mega Tiles. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2019 release offers a maximum payout of 3,888 times the bet.
Like most other Red Tiger Gaming titles with similar topic, the reels of the Mega Dragon video slot are placed high on a mountaintop, inside of a traditional Chinese temple, guarded by sleeping Dragons. One of the Dragons is the Wild that substitutes for all other symbols and wakes up three sleeping Dragons. The Golden Ingot is the symbol that pays the most, followed by Golden Coins, Pearls and Scrolls. Also, there are 10-A playing cards acting as low-value symbols.
Unlike other traditional slots, Mega Dragon benefits from cluster pays. This means that you need to land a cluster of at least five matching symbols, horizontally or vertically adjacent, to land a win. The 2019 release features 8 reels and 7 rows. The good thing about cluster pays is that you can land a winning cluster anywhere on the reels. Also, there is the Cascading Reels feature, meaning that winning clusters disappear, making room for new symbols to land and hopefully create new winning clusters. Betting starts at £0.20 and the biggest wager is set at £20 per single spin.
Unfortunately, there are no free spins on the offer. There are three Dragon features, which are triggered in the same manner. All gamers need to do is land two Wilds on adjacent positions. One of three Dragon features will be randomly triggered. If you get the Green Dragon, it will turn all instances of one of the low-paying symbols on the reels into one of the high-value symbols. The Golden Dragon will add extra Wilds on the reels. Finally, there is the Red Dragon, which flies across the reels and turns one of the high-value symbols and turns it into a Mega Tile, which can be at least 2×2 big.
The biggest possible payout gamers can expect in the 2019 release is set at 3,888 times the bet in a single spin. The Golden Ingot is the symbol that pays the most, offering up to 888 times the bet for 25+ symbols in a cluster. The Dragons that guard the temple will help you land bigger wins once you manage to wake them up. Mega Dragon’s RTP is 96.19%.
Mega Dragon on Mobile
Due to the fact that it is not easy to climb all the way up to the highest mountaintop and reach the ancient Chinese temple, the good people of Red Tiger Gaming made sure that everybody will have a chance to test their luck with the three Dragons, so they developed a video slot that is playable across all devices.
+ Only two adjacent Wilds trigger special features
+ Three Dragons with three rewarding powers
+ Playable across all devices
– No free spins
– No multipliers
– Generic playing cards
We can all agree that there are more than enough video slots themed after ancient China. Chinese temples and sleeping Dragons are very common nowadays and we have to be completely honest and say that we did not see much in Mega Dragon that would make the 2019 release stand out from the crowd. The reels run as smoothly as possible, the Red Tiger Gaming title boasts crisp graphics and a fitting soundtrack, but it lacks action and the betting range could have been a bit wider. Taking everything under consideration, we expected more from Red Tiger Gaming title.
