Some cultures associate dragons with good fortune and prosperity, while others view them as symbols of treachery and evil. It appears Leander has incorporated both types of creatures in its Dragon Slot release. In this 5-reel slot with 3 rows, spinners join the noble White Dragon in a fight against his nemesis, the evil Red Dragon.
The battle for the massive prizes unfolds across 20 adjustable paylines. The question is who will prevail. The game is a collaboration between the renowned software studio and Gustavo Cabral, more popular under his artistic pseudonym Ciruelo. Drawing dragons is the Argentine artist’s specialty, so you can expect nothing short of spectacular graphics from this release.

Symbols and Winning Combinations in Dragon Slot
As we mentioned earlier, Dragon Slot features 5 reels with adjustable paylines. Winning combinations align starting from the far left reel and must hit one or more activated paylines to yield a profit. The only symbol that pays in both directions is the scattered skull.
As fearsome as he is, the Black Dragon produces the top payout in the game, awarding up to 2,500x the line bet for five matches. The White Dragon is capable of enriching players with up to 800x the line bet.
Next comes the Green Dragon, rewarding spinners with up to 300x the wager per line. These three creatures pay for as few as two matches as follows – 3x the line bet for the Green Dragon, 4x the line bet for the White Dragon, and 5x for the Black Dragon. All other symbols require you to align at least three matches to win. The Red and Blue Dragons award maximum payouts of 250x and 125x the line bet, respectively. The scattered skull offers top prizes of 100x the total bet and minimum payouts of 5x the total wager.
High cards 10 through Ace form the low-value winning combinations that can increase your balance by up to 120x, depending on the type of matching symbols. The Yellow Dragon is wild – it substitutes all regular icons but does not offer any payouts.
Bonus Features of Dragon Slot
Apart from its unique graphics and epic soundtrack, Dragon Slot impresses with two special features that further improve players’ winning chances. To begin with, there is a special bonus icon that depicts the White Dragon and the Red Dragon in battle. The bonus symbols can land only on the second, third, and fourth reels to activate the Dragons Fight Bonus. During this feature, players will join the noble White Dragon to assist him in his battle.
They must attack the Red Dragon to earn instant cash payouts. The White Dragon will reward those who manage to kill his nemesis with special prizes. Each time you breathe fire on the Red Dragon, his damage will reflect in the health meter above him. You should be careful and protect yourself as your adversary can also inflict damages on you and decrease your stamina level.
We particularly liked this feature because it makes Dragon Slot more like a video game where players can influence the outcome through skill. Leander has also equipped the release with a round of free spins that starts once you land three armored knights on the same round. However, the knight symbols must appear specifically on the first, third, and fifth reels to trigger the special feature.
You can choose the volatility level of your free spins by picking a dragon for the knight to fight. If your chosen dragon emerges as a winner, you trigger the respective number of free spins and benefit from a higher multiplier. Should your dragon lose, however, you get 10 free rounds with the minimum 1x multiplier on wins.
Both special features are highly interactive, which makes the gameplay all the more engaging. We previously mentioned the Yellow Dragon is wild, substituting for the other icons. This is not your regular wild, though. Each time it appears, it expands to cover all three positions of the third reel, which enables it to potentially create more winning combinations.
We have to admit Dragon Slot is among our favorite releases by Leander Games. Although less feature-rich compared to the studio’s newer slots, the game appealed to us with its interactivity. Both the free spins round and the bonus mini-game are interactive and highly entertaining, not to mention Ciruelo’s graphics are amazing and unique in every way.
