Dragon’s Fire Megaways slot review (Red Tiger)

More and more often do we see new Megaways slots that are based on existing slots. Just think of the excellent Medusa Megaways or Raging Rhino Megaways. Dragon’s Fire is another example of an excellent high variance slot that has (unfortunately) not received the credits and success that it deserved.

Dragon’s Fire Megaways is the Megaways upgrade of the somewhat obscure Dragon’s Fire slot from Red Tiger

Red Tiger Gaming must have felt that it could get more out of this beautiful theme. For that reason, they decided to make a Megaways version of it.

Besides the outstanding visuals, many of the existing features have not changed. We are talking about the fire-spitting dragons, the increasing multipliers and the mystery features.

New are the up to 117,649 ways to win (which is what a Megaways slot is all about) and avalanche symbols during the free spins.

Gameplay and features of the Dragon’s Fire Megaways slot

We guess that most of you are now familiar with Megaway’s slots. One of the key features is that there are up to 117,649 ways to win. There are 6 reels. Each of the reels has 2 to 7 rows.

One exciting feature is the so-called “avalanche mechanism,” which is active when you get the free spins. We come back to that below.

Then there are multipliers. After each winning spin, the multiplier increases by +1. The multiplier can increase substantially (up to 50x) as long as you continue to get winning spins. Once you don’t win (in the base game), the multiplier disappears. You then have to start all over again.

There is good news, though. You ONLY need such a winning streak in the base game, NOT during the free spins.

The minimum stake is $€0.20, and you can bet up to a maximum of $€10 per spin.

What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Dragon’s Fire Megaways slot?

The RTP is a bit lower than what we really would have liked to see: 95.72%. Ideally, it is in the 96%-97% ballpark.

Beware, though, that this is the maximum RTP. Some casinos offer this game at an even lower RTP (94.68%). We always recommend you to check in the game rules what the RTP is. Make sure you are not wasting money if you don’t have to. Wishmaker is a casino that offers the highest RTP for this slot (95.72%).

The maximum win is a dazzling 10,000x the total bet. That is, of course, enormous, making this slot is a high variance slot.

Having said this, it is realistic to have some fantastic wins of 1,000x the bet or even more. Imagine that you have 20 or more wins in the free spins (possible with the avalanche mechanism). Then you have a multiplier of 20x or more. Do you get the feeling?

Symbols and payouts  – dragons and dragon’s eggs

As with most Megaways slots, you can win something spectacular with all symbols. Thanks to the wilds, the colossal amount of Megaways and the massive multipliers (up to 50x the win).

The premium symbols are the dragons, and the lower symbols are the dragon’s eggs.

Mystery features – the dragon fire blast

The dragon is usually asleep but occasionally decides to wake up and give the player a big hand.

He spits fire on reels and rewards you with either three reels of wilds OR two free spins scatters.

Sometimes, if you manage to get two free spins scatters but miss that elusive third scatter, the dragon helps you out again and spits out another free spins symbol on one of the reels, giving you your well-deserved access to the free spins!

The multiplier increases after every win

The copper-orange coloured egg at the right bottom corner is the multiplier egg. It increases by +1 after every win.

If, for example, you have a winning streak of 10 wins, the multiplier increases to 11x. It resets again after a non-winning spin.


Free Spins Bonus – spectacular boosters

Three or more scattered Free Spins symbols activate the free spins bonus. You are then asked to click on one of the three sleeping dragons. Now it is revealed how many free spins you will win.

During the free spins, a few boosters are present:

  • The multiplier does not reset if you have not made a winning spin (like is the case in the base game)
  • The multiplier is unlimited (not capped at 50x, like in the base game)
  • Winning symbols disappear (drop) and make way for new falling symbols (what we call the “avalanche mechanism”). Suppose this results in a winning spin, this process repeats. The multiplier continues to increase as winning spins following this avalanche mechanism do also count.

We guess it becomes crystal clear that Dragon’s Fire Megaways can provide some massive wins once you enter the free spins. It is all thanks to the unlimited avalanche feature and unlimited egg multiplier.

If that was not enough, it is possible to retrigger the free spins.

Our verdict on the Dragon’s Fire Megaways slot

Hats off to Red Tiger Gaming. With Dragon’s Fire Megaways, almost everything has been done right. The theme is beautiful, and the bonus features are as surprising as they are lucrative.

The increasing multiplier after each winning spin makes the base game exciting, something that many other Megaways slots miss.

The only point of criticism and not something to ignore is the low RTP of 95.72%. This lower-than-average return to player stops us from giving full marks for this, otherwise excellent, slot.

4.0 out of 5 stars.
