We really like to see when a casino software provider gives players something a bit different to enjoy, and that's exactly why we find the Dragon Hot slot by EGT quite promising. It has a much larger game area than what you typically see for four times the action than most titles with a standard format. On top of that, it's built from the ground up to offer players a very action-oriented experience with four different jackpots and good features.
On your first look at this game, you'll notice right away that the format is much different than usual. There are five reels and three rows in the main part of the game on the left-hand side. However, there are three more sets of 5x3 grids of symbols on the right-hand side. Each of these four areas has 20 paylines apiece, and that gives you what amounts to a five-reel and 12-row game. There's some interplay between these two main sets of reels, however, and we'll look at that below.
You can wager between 20 and 400 coins per spin, and each coin can be set from a variety of sizes that start at $0.01 apiece. This means your bet sizes start out at $0.20, which is low considering how many ways to win there are with so many symbols in play.
Wild Reels Feature
If you get a reel full of wild symbols on the main set of reels (on the left-hand side), then you will see a dragon for that reel fly over to the right-hand set of symbols and breathe fire down that same reel it flew from. The fire scorches all of the existing symbols on that line and turns them all into wild symbols. This clearly adds a lot of value to the spin by making it easier to get wins on all of the right-hand rows as well.
It's worth pointing out that the wilds only appear on the middle three reels, and that's why you only see dragons on platforms waiting above those three reels on the left-hand side. Moreover, they substitute for everything but the two scatter symbols.
A very important part of this game is the fact that every single symbol shows up stacked on every single spin. This creates a situation where the variance is increased a little bit, but the chances of multi-line payouts on a single spin are also increased significantly. This ties in with the extra number of horizontal rows to perpetuate a scenario where lots of multi-line payouts are possible.
Scatter Symbol Wins
Players have chances to win scatter payouts in two different ways with this slot. With the money sign symbol in gold, you can pick up a win for three of more of this symbol anywhere on a particular set of reels. Five of a kind earns 500x, and four will get you 100x. You can also pick up a 15x payout for three of a kind. The second scatter pays 100x for three, and it only shows up on the first, third and fifth reels. These symbols don't have to land on a payline, but they do have to land within one particular 5x3 set of reels as marked by the borders.
Big Wins and Payouts
You have a random chance to win one of the four progressive jackpots listed at the top of this game on any given spin. Aside from that, there's a 3,000x top payout available for five of the lucky red seven on a payline. This is the only symbol that pays for two of a kind, and that's pretty easy to get considering stacked wilds show up on the second reel.
The grapes and watermelon symbols both pay 500x for five of a kind. Down from that is the bell symbol, which gets you 200x for five. The four bottom fruit symbols are the orange, the plums, the cherries and the lemons, and each of them pay out 100x for five-of-a-kind combinations.
Keep in mind that all of these symbols are stacked, and that makes it much easier to hit multiple payouts at once. Aside from that, you're also playing on four different sets of reels at once, and that increases the hit-rate on a per-spin basis as well.
With the Dragon Hot video slot by EGT, you get a pretty action-packed experience. The wild feature with the stacked wilds moving over to the other reels is pretty interesting, especially if you get two reels full of wilds at the same time. The stacked symbols in general showing up on every reel increase the action in the game as well, and having multiple scatters makes it easy too. The graphics aren't bad in this game at all, but they probably aren't going to win any awards either, and it's clear that this title is all about the gameplay.
