Sakura Dragon slot review (Playson)

sakura dragon playson slot review

Sakura Dragon does not resemble that game at all. However, it has been heavily influenced by a very famous Konami slot called Dragons law. That is the one where during the bonus feature a dragon flies across the screen and leaves wilds behind. Anybody who has spent time in Holland Casino or Las Vegas most probably has encountered that slot.

Playson is somewhat of an unknown game provider that on some level is being ignored by slot players

As far as is concerned that is a crying shame: this productive Swedish game producer does have a lot of exciting video slots on their resume.

Just think for example of slots like Crystal Land, Chicago Gangsters and Legend of Cleopatra. All well-produced slots with fun bonus features and great graphics.

Therefore we are always curious about new releases from Playson.

Sakura Dragon is a video slot with an Oriental theme and we, of course, immediately had to think of Quickspins’ beautiful Sakura Fortune slot.

But alright, pinching stuff is nothing new in the online slots’ world. If Play’n GO can copy the Starburst slot with Crystal Sun, then Playson can be inspired by Konami.

Sakura Dragon gameplay and features

Sakura Dragon looks very good graphically speaking, but a bit meek. Two purple dragons are positioned on both sides of the screen, and they can be of service to you, mainly during the bonus features.

We also see beautiful mountains in the background and those typical pink cherry blossoms on the trees.

The slot has a set up with 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols and 15 fixed paylines.

You play with set amounts that start as low as $€ 0.20 and can go all the way up to $€ 100, per spin.

The variance of Sakura Dragon is medium to high. Nothing is known about the theoretical payout rate of this slot at the time of this review. Most Playson slots have an RTP of about 96%, so you should probably operate on the assumption that this one will be similar.

Symbols and payouts

The highest paying symbol is a brave Samurai warrior. At least we think it is, seeing that beautiful women appear to fall at his feet. He pays out 25 x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind. A screen full of warriors is worth 15 x 25 = 375 the total bet.

Both of the ladies, one with a fan, the other with a parasol have a value of 12.5 x the total bet with 5 identical ones on an active payline.

There are also symbols with a deer and a fox. These are the medium value symbols, good for 7.5 x the total bet.

We wrap up the symbols with the traditional card symbols. If you manage to spin 5 of the same ones of the 9, 10, J, Q, K, or A, you will win 5 x the total bet.

Dragon Wild Feature

At random times the dragons come to life and fly across the screen. They leave wilds behind on the reels, which often leads to really nice payouts.

The Dragon Wild Feature can occur in the base game and the free spin bonus round. It just happens way more in the free spin bonus round, about once in every four spins.

Free spins bonus

3, 4 or 5 scattered Lotus flowers activate the free spin bonus in which you can receive 8, 10 or 12 free spins. You also get a money prize of up to 50 x the total bet.

There is no limit as to how many times the free spins can be retriggered.

Our verdict on the Sakura Dragon video slot

Sakura Dragon is a charming slot, especially if you like Oriental themes and mystery wild features.

It is one of those typical slots that only gets interesting once you hit the free spin bonus because that is when the wild feature is activated way more frequently.

3 out of 5 stars.
