Many players probably remember that the 1980s and early 1990s had a lot of television shows, movies and even early video games that centered on medieval fantasy themes, and the Dragon Queen slot by Reflex Gaming definitely looks like a throwback to those styles, but that's not to say it was intentional. You'll have lots of fire and flames and lava and mountains in the background with an older style of bright and vibrant graphics and lots of ways to get paid.
You'll be able to get paid from left to right only on this game's 10 paylines. They extend out across five reels with three rows of symbols. Betting has been made pretty simple since you'll pick from the available stake sizes, and there are lots of sizes available at different levels to make it easy to pick out something that works for you. What you'll also notice is that the paylines are completely static. That means you'll always be playing on all ten paylines, and you can divide your total bet by 10 to see how much is being wagered on each payline.
With that having been said, it's not actually necessary to do this because every single payout in this game is based on the total amount being wagered. That makes it much easier to keep up with what's going on in terms of the actual monetary amounts of any wins you could pick up on the reels.
The Wild Dragon Eye Symbol
You'll very quickly find out that the most important symbol in this entire game is the dragon eye. It shows up on the first, third and fifth reels only, but it's super important as a wild symbol. This makes it easier to hit winning payouts, and that's because it substitutes for every single symbol available in this entire game. You don't frequently see wild symbols that do that, so it's easy to have a strong appreciation for it in this particular slot.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Something else that's really cool about the wild dragon eye symbol is that it's also the free spins symbol. When you get all three of them on the reels at once, on the first, third and fifth reels, then you'll trigger a set of 12 free turns. This free spins feature gives you chances to run up a meter at the top of the reels by collecting certain payouts to get an extra bonus win, so they're worth more than you'd typically see.
Upper-end Symbols and Payouts
The evil queen of dragons is the top-paying symbol, and she gives you 100x your total bet for five of a kind. She's also the only symbol to pay for just two of a kind. The wins drop down to the 50x level for a couple of other symbols, and this is the red dragon and the crown. You can also earn 25x prizes if you line up five of the dragon eggs or the icy water symbol, which is sort of the bane of this style of fire-based and fire-breathing dragons.
This game uses card rank symbols in a font that really matches the theme for its low-level pays. You can start off with the red A symbol, and it's worth a 15x win. This goes along with the purple K, which is also worth 15x for five of a kind. You can nail 10x for five of a kind of the orange Q, the green J or the blue 10 in this game.
You'll notice that some of the lower-tier symbols seem to have really low payouts. However, remember that these pays are multiples of your whole bet. With 10 paylines, that means the 10x payouts for five of the lowest-paying symbols in the game would be like 100x wins in other games that use the line wager system to describe their prizes. This means that you're actually getting a pretty reasonable range of five-of-a-kind payouts that goes from 1,000x at the top end to 100x at the bottom end when you use the more usual line bet wager format.
There are some games that players are completely polarized and torn on with some of them loving it and others of them hating it. We get the feeling that Dragon Queen by Reflex Gaming has that type of following. The gameplay isn't bad, and the way the wild symbol and free spins bonus symbol are tied in together makes it stand out a little. The pay schedule is also very balanced.
However, the graphics are either terrible or awesome depending on your tastes, and there's not much for many opinions in between. The graphics definitely look dated, but some people won't mind that at all. Overall, we think this is a relatively balanced game that's based on a fairly generic theme, and we could take it or leave it.
