Dragon Island is a 5 reel, 15 payline online slot game from NetEnt, boasting a potential RTP of 96.7%, a 400,000 coin jackpot, and a free spin mode that could net players a cash prize with a 100x multiplier.
Combined with the appealing graphics, fantasy setting and soothing soundtrack, Dragon Island is a great choice for online slots.
Look and Feel
Dragon Island is tropical fantasy themed game with the play screen featuring tropical flowers and vines, and an animated waterfall trickling behind the UI.
Some have suggested the design may be based on the so-called Dragon Island of Sa Dragonera National Park, just off the coast of Majorca, but this peaceful paradise has fire-breathing reptiles – and big cash wins – lurking in the trees!
The game’s scatter symbol is a volcano, while the two possible wild symbols, standard Wild and Golden Wild, are represented by silver and gold dragons.
The higher value symbols are represented by dragons’ heads that match natural elements – fire, earth, air, water, and nature – while the lower value symbols are the standard A, K, Q, J, and 10.
The UI is clear and simple, ideal for mobile or desktop playing, and the color palette throughout is very soothing and relaxing, with an art style that recalls both tropical islands and high fantasy paintings.
The ambient soundtrack of bird, nature, and insect noises is immersive and soothing, and the musical stings for each spin or win aren’t overly intrusive, making gameplay a very pleasant experience.
Dragon Island offers a minimum bet possible of 2p for a single pay line or 30p for the full 15 pay lines with a coin value of 0.01.
The maximum possible bet at max coin value for 15 lines is £150, and Dragon Island promises a potential 400,000 coin jackpot.
As usual, bet level can be controlled by the “lines” “level” and “coin value” buttons, and there are also max bet and autoplay features.
One of Dragon Island’s unusual features is the Win Both Ways mode, which can be activated or deactivated, and will take the floor down to 1p, and max bet to £75 if deactivated, but will also take Golden Wilds out of the game.
The Win Both Ways feature allows potential wins to be counted in both directions across the reels, effectively doubling the chances of possible wins.
Dragon Island’s generous Free Spins mode is accessed when you score three or more scatter symbols, and five scatter symbols will trigger a massive 50 free spins, plus a chance at a cash prize with an incredible 100x multiplier on your stake.
Three scatter symbols will net ten free spins, four scatter symbols will earn twenty free spins, and free spin rounds also offer an expanding wild to improve chances of winning.
Further free spins can be earned during free spin rounds, too, potentially improving payouts even further.
While it might be very rare to score five scatter symbols and access the top level prize potential, Dragon Island certainly offers a great gameplay experience and competitive returns for players.
