Dragonz from Microgaming: Slot Review - tame those dragonz!

Do you have what it takes to tame a dragon? Flint, Switch, Frost and Gobble would really like to know!

This game is all about a bunch of cute dragons who each have their own unique set of abilities. It is clearly influenced by How to Train Your Dragon and being a fan of this movie, I was eager to see what it had in store for me and if a version of Hiccup was going to show up as well!

It is a 5 reel 3D slot game with up to 243 ways to win and has a whole host of unique features that will have you sparring with these dragons in no time!

Special Features

The first feature of note is the Wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except for the Scatter symbol but the cool thing about the Wild symbol is that it can form winning combinations on its own if you get more than 3 on a winning payline. If you do not form a winning combination but have a Wild symbol on reel 3 then you will be awarded extra Wilds on the other reels which give you a guaranteed win. This is known as the Wild Deal feature. It is a cool concept to factor in losing spins and it makes the game really interesting.

The standout feature of this game is the Free Spins feature. This will trigger when you land 3 or more Scatter symbols across the reels. Once you have triggered the free spins 12 times then things get really interesting and you can pick any of the 4 following features:

Flint - This fierce red dragon will award you with 10 free spins and spews out fiery Wilds on the reels. Up to 10 Wilds can appear making a huge payout all the more likely.

Switch - The stealthy purple dragon gives you 10 free spins along with stashed wilds. The switch will store non-winning wild symbols and when collects 3 or more, they are then randomly sent back to the reels for a winning combination. Free spins will continue going until all Wild symbols have been given out.

Frost - The icy blue dragon also gets 10 free spins but with Frosty Wilds. Frost will then fly across the ice and freeze non-winning wilds in place until they form part of a winning combination. Frosty Wilds will remain frozen on the reels until they all contribute to a win.

Gobble - The playful green dragon also gives 10 free spins awarded as well as Winning Wilds. Gobble will spit Wilds onto the reels which will then stick in place until it’s no longer part of a winning combination. This means you can get lots of free spins with sticky Wilds on them. A tasty yet sticky treat there no doubt!

Theme and Graphics

The whole presentation of this game is simply stunning. The graphics are amazing and the 3D symbols run amazingly well across the reels and really pop when a winning combination lands.

The character designs of the dragons are excellent and I liked the names of them as well especially Flint and Gobble! Each dragon is specific and has their own personality and this adds to the game since each dragon offers something different in it. The background drop of the dark cave is also a nice nod to Hiccup and the gang.

The music is of the epic variety with lots of soothing flutes and soaring harps. It really does add to the game and creates a unique atmosphere when you spin those reels.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 243 paylines, a respectable RTP of 96.3% and a top jackpot prize consisting of 1000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
