Dragon Maiden is a fantastic high variance Play’n GO slot that can win you up to 5,000 x your bet

Play’n GO is slowly but surely becoming possibly our favourite game provider. They know, time and again, how to release fun, diverse and unique slots.

In 2018 Play’n GO, for example, released the brilliant Reactoonz, the equally brilliant Moon Princess and the entertaining Gun Slinger: Reloaded.

Play’n GO also released the disappointing Iron Girl in 2018, but we don’t want to be a spoilsport. So, we will forget about that one, for now.

Play’n GO enters into the Fantasy action world with Dragon Maiden, a video slot about fire-breathing dragons and a tough-looking red-haired lady.

This slot is full of surprises: unfolding wilds, progressive win all ways and Super Spins.

Although the real big wins can only be won with the volatile bonus feature, we enjoy playing this game. So, should you decide to play this slot for real money, make sure you have enough money in your account to get some decent bonus features before your balance reaches zero.

Dragon Maiden gameplay and features

The Dragon Maiden game takes place in ancient history when the dragons flew freely through the air. Good times.

You play the primary game on 5 reels, 3 rows of symbols and a playing field that possibly extends during the free spins bonus.

In total, there are 243 ways to win: it does not matter where the symbols appear on the reels.

You bet fixed amounts per spin: a minimum of $€ 0.20 and a maximum of $€ 100 per spin.

The next bet after € 0.20 is immediately 1 whole Euro. That is a pity. The vast majority of slots players play bets ranging between € 0.40 and € 0.80. The step from the minimum bet of € 0.20 to € 1 per spin is quite a big one.

Payout percentage and variance

The theoretical payout rate is a solid 96.49%.

The variance is very substantial. In the primary game, you will not likely hit a big payout, but it is entirely possible during the free spins. This game will attract the real thrill-seeking slots player, who is not afraid of taking some more significant risks in exchange for the chance of reaping huge rewards.

Symbols and payouts

The Dragon Maiden itself is the highest paying symbol. 5 of these red-haired ladies get you 12.50 x the bet.

Sometimes the Dragon Maidens change in wild symbols up to 1, 2 or 3 wilds. From time to time, this can, of course, be very useful.

The medium paying symbols consist of two coloured rings, a dagger and a coin. A 5-of-a-kind of these medium symbols is worth between the 2.5 x and 10 x your bet.

The low symbols include the hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs. A 5-of-a-kind is worth between 0.5 x and 1 x the total bet.

Free spins bonus

To activate the free spins bonus, you need 3 or more scattered dragons.

Do you spin 2? Then you get 1 free respin to try and add at least 1 extra scattered dragon.

Are you able to spin 3 or more scatters? Then you win 10 free spins.

However, these are not regular free spins.

Every time a dragon appears on the reels, that reel is raised by 1 position.

Golden Free Spins

Did you reach the maximum height of 6 positions? Then you win 1 Golden Free Spin. You also get 1 for every additional dragon on a full reel.

During the Golden Free Spins, all reels are at their maximum size, with 7,776 ways to win.

In effect, every free spin is a kind of Super Spin.

The big wins can come flying in, especially if you also have some expanding wilds on the reels.

What do we think of Dragon Maiden?

Dragon Maiden is a beautiful little video slot from those masters at Play’n GO.

Although it is graphically not that spectacular, the slot has a lot to offer regarding gameplay, potential and pure excitement.

Especially the Super Spins can be very lucrative.

4 out of 5 stars
