Magic Dragons Review
The eastern land is beautiful and full of prosperous treasures. Magic Dragons is perfect for oriental slot fans who love a taste of the orient. Developed by NetGame, the slot plays on 5-reels with 243 ways to win.
As a low volatility slot, players can win up to 1671.2x your stake during one of the free spins round. Magic Dragons is all about the different dragon free spins with 6 different options for players to choose from. This is a slot that gives the players the chance to mould their own game.
There is everything you could want in an oriental slot with Magic Dragons. The background has a mythical green dragon lurking around with another dragon guarding the reels. You’ll feel immediately transported to ancient China with the luxurious dragons. The reels themselves are decorated with grand red designs mixed with symbols such as lucky coins and other Chinese symbols.
Thankfully, the sounds mix well with the visuals. Even when you aren’t spinning, there is a soft tune with a pipa carrying the main rhythm. During wins, the music changes to a more elaborate tune but still familiar. Winning will literally result in visual and audible fireworks, which makes you feel even more like a winner.
Playing on 5-reels, the gameplay in Magic Dragon is fairly simple. The added benefits come from the paylines at an impressive 243 ways to win. During the free spins round, the paylines can expand to 576.
Like in most NetGame slots, you’ll find the menus at the bottom left of the screen. Bet levels can be found at the bottom left as well next to the menus followed by the autospin and spin button. You’ll find it goes up to 1,000 autospins and you can turn on turbo mode if the reels are too slow. However, this may not be available for UK residents.
Whilst the gameplay is vibrant and the design is stunning, the win potential is a tad dissatisfying. The RTP is at a mediocre 94.62% which will disappoint many. It’s below the average standard at 95% so be aware of this. Thankfully, the volatility level is low so players should expect a lower frequent return.
The base game can see players win up to 800x your stake with the golden animals, and this can increase to 1,671.2x your stake during the free spins rounds as the paylines expand to 576. Whilst this isn’t earth shattering, it’s a fairly decent amount for a low volatile slot.
Of course, there is the chance to win on NetGame’s 4 progressive jackpots starting at red and silver before growing even higher with gold and diamond. These can drop randomly but increases with more spins. You could potentially win life-changing amounts depending on which jackpot you get. This jackpot is set up by the operators and can be linked to other jackpots - check with your operator of choice before you play.
The concept of Magic Dragons is fantastic and a complete knock-out...but it doesn’t deliver as much as we’d like. Graphics wise - it’s a solid slot. The same with the audio and general gameplay. What does let down the slot is the win potential with the low RTP at 94.62%. Magic Dragons could’ve been a real contender for an outstanding slot, but it simply stands at good.
If you love oriental themed slots or animal slots, then you’ll definitely enjoy this one. For those of you wanting an oriental slot with a higher RTP, then make sure to try out Hey Sushi or Sakura Fortune.
