Dancing Dragon Spring Festival from Playson: Slot Review - join in the celebrations!

Celebrate the Chinese New Year in style with this game.

This slot pays tribute to the Spring Festival which takes place in China each and every year and it is more commonly known as Chinese New Year. It is one of the most important dates on the Chinese calendar and it is celebrated with a Lantern Festival and a family reunion dinner. Families clean their houses as is the tradition in China in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for some good luck. Houses are also decorated with red paper and people give money to each other in red envelopes. It is one of the world’s most celebrated festivals and this year it is the year of the Rooster.

The game has 5 reels, 30 paylines, and it does not contain any bonus features.

Special Features

The game does not have any bonus features at all apart from the Wild symbol. The Wild symbol is depicted by a golden Chinese coin with a purple ribbon. This symbol substitutes for all the other symbols except the Dancing Lion symbol. It also only appears on the 3rd reel in the game.

The highest paying symbol is the Dragon symbol and it is illustrated by a wonderful looking red dragon with blue eyes. If you are fortunate enough to cover every position of the reels with this symbol then you will be awarded a whopping 5,000X your total bet!

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The game is absolutely stunning to look at, as the backdrop of the slot is filled with swaying lanterns and blossom trees that are bathed in a purple hazy glow. The reels of the slot are laid out on a parchment stretched between two rollers with the name of the game at the top. Symbols consist of drums, firecrackers, red envelopes, lanterns, dragons, kites, and cymbals which all nicely tie in with the theme of the game. The animations are really good as symbols bounce and come to life when you form a win along the reels.

The music is amazing as a traditional Chinese song plays out as the reels spin. It is haunting but calming and it really adds to the atmosphere as you play.
