Online slots that use an Asian theme are everywhere, and it seems like more of them come out on a monthly basis sometimes. Mazooma knew that for them to build Dragon's Wild Fire and to have it be a success, they would have to stand out quite a bit, and they seem to have been up to the challenge. This game has very striking graphics and a dragon that flies around the reels at random times, both of which add a lot to the visual appeal of the slot.
Format and Layout
The format of this game is five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. They probably couldn't have picked a more straightforward, standard format, but that's how these games go sometimes. The betting is based on 20 fixed paylines that can't be changed, but you can change your bet size per payline. This is from a range of 1 credit to 500, and you get to choose whatever your credit size is, so there's a pretty flexible range of bet sizes available starting at 20 credits.
The wild symbol is pretty important in this game because, other than the dragon, it's the only symbol that can win with just two of a kind. It also has sizable wins on a relatively balanced pay table, which helps the volatility of the game as well.
Five of a kind in wilds gives you a 500x prize, and four of a kind isn't far behind at 400x. What's interesting about this is that if you get five of a kind in any symbol other than the dragon by using four wilds lined up, then you get a larger win than you would have for the normal five of a kind win. Three wilds earns 100x, and two earns just 2x, which is obviously a sharp drop-off, but it's necessary because of how easy it is to line up just two symbols.
The dragon is the biggest normal symbol in regular gameplay. It gives 400x for five and 200x for four. It also pays for just two of a kind or more, and it's the only symbol other than the wilds to do so. Five of the thunderbird earns 300x with 140x for four, and you can earn 250x for five of the gold and red symbol. The same 250x top win is good for five of the blue symbol as well. Both the blue and red/gold symbols pay 100x for four of a kind, so it's clear that there's a pretty balanced payout schedule.
Below those top wins are the red A and orange K symbols, and both of them pay a surprisingly high 200x for five. The purple Q, green J and blue 10 all pay 100x for five of a kind. These five ranking symbols are stylized in a way that's easily one of the best ways of handling these symbols we've ever seen in a slot, and it's a fresh approach of really trying to do something meaningful with these symbols instead of just throwing them in a game for filler.
Free Spins Bonus Round
The yin-yang symbol shows up on the first, middle and last reels. Get all three of them at once, and you will earn a set of seven free spins. During these free spins, you'll get the stepping wilds feature. Before each spin, you'll get to select a direction (up, down, left or right). When the reels come to a stop, the wild symbols well move all the way in the direction you chose, creating extra winning combinations.
We suggest that you move them all the way to the left to take advantage of the payouts for just two or three wild symbols, which pay out some pretty significant wins.
Flaming Respin Bonus Feature
If you get a stacked dragon symbol that fills up an entire reel, then you get a respin. All dragons and wild symbols will hold in place after paying out your normal win to give you a free respin. More dragons or wilds on the reels will lock in place, and you'll continue getting respins until no new wilds or dragons show up. You'll receive a win for the final reel positions, which will likely be significant since both symbols pay for just two of a kind.
The graphics in Dragon's Wild Fire are excellent, and they definitely stand out as soon as you open the game to play. As far as the pay table goes, there are no massive jackpots to be won, but the balanced style of the payout structure in this slot creates a situation where you're going to have a high hit-rate and a low volatility, which is hard to argue with. The different types of features, especially the Flaming Respin Bonus, are pretty cool as well, and it adds a lot to the value of the game. We would recommend this slot if you like low-volatility, high-action titles.
