Lucky Dragons slot review (Pragmatic Play)

lucky dragons slot review

Keep an eye on the Buddha, as he will award you free spins. During the game, you will get some excellent payouts here and there. Partly, this happens thanks to the highest-value symbol, the dragon’s head, which is a Stacked symbol. This dragon growls and spits, but growling dragons don’t bite. In fact, this dragon will reward you abundantly.

Pragmatic Play has created Lucky Dragons, a slot with a Chinese theme and a predominantly red and gold setting

In Chinese culture, the dragon is a symbol of luck. Thus, dragons in different shapes and sizes play a leading role in this game. Occasionally, Buddha drops in as well.

Will they also bring you happiness and luck?

Payout rate and variance of Lucky Dragons

The game has 50 paylines with a moderate payout rate of 95.19% and average variance.


How does the Lucky Dragons slot work?

The game consists of 5 reels and 4 rows and has 50 fixed paylines. The minimum bet is quite substantial: $€ 0.50 per spin. The maximum bet is $€ 250 per spin.

The game’s symbols are the dragon’s head, golden/red dragon, tiger, orange/green dragon, fish, frog & the letters A, K, Q & J. The letters award you the least, 1 x to 2 x your bet for 5 of the same symbols.

The frog earns you 3 x your bet for 5-of-a-kind, the fish, orange/green dragon and the tiger are worth 6 x your bet, the golden/red dragon 8 x and the dragon head 16 x your total stake for five identical ones.

The dragon-head is the only symbol to award you a prize with just two identical ones. This dragon will light your fire!

The gold medal is the Wild symbol of the game. The Wild can appear both in the primary game and in the bonus game. It replaces all symbols except the Scatter symbol. The Wild plays a vital role during the free spins bonus, but more about that later.

As with every Pragmatic Play slot, Lucky Dragons comes with some extra options. There is an accelerated spin for the impatient among us, which you activate by pressing and holding your space bar down.

Furthermore, you can check your Game History, where you can see how your balance has developed throughout the game.


The Free Spins Bonus

The Buddha functions as a Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol can drop on reel 2, 3 and 4. 3 Scatters award you 6 free spins. Somewhat on the low side if you ask me, but don’t look a gifted dragon in the mouth! First of all, 3 Scatter symbols earn you 2 x your bet. During the free spins bonus, every spin adds a Wild to reel 2, 3, and 4. These Wilds continue to spin as Stacked Wilds during the free spins.

Each scatter symbol gets you one extra free spin. That’s more like it, hallelujah!

The Stacked Wilds, preferably combined with the dragon heads, can make this bonus feature turn out to be very lucrative.


Our verdict on the Lucky Dragons slot

By creating Lucky Dragons, Pragmatic Play has put a fun slot on the Chinese menu. Up until the bonus feature, the graphics are fun but not spectacular. Then suddenly, those dragons appear out of nowhere!

The somewhat high minimum bet may not be attractive for everyone, but it shouldn’t keep the real fortune seekers from giving it a try.

I will definitely try my luck again.
