Where to play?
Quickspin’s Dragon Shrine has 40 paylines, 5 reels and pays a total non-progressive jackpot of 500 coins. I played the game with a bankroll of £150, based on my playing experience I find it to be of medium variance.
Although the graphics are not as sharp as the other Quickspin games payouts in general are quite good. it pays out on every 4 to 6 spins. That said, it predominantly favours players with larger budgets but caution is still advised because it can cut your bankroll to shreds pretty fast. The smallest stake per spin is £0.20 up to £80. Dragon Shrine slots can be played on mobile phones and PCs for free or for real cash at our best Quickspin casinos.
Dragon Shrine is Chinese themed slots albeit with a contemporary twist to it. In terms of bonus games there’s a ‘Dragon Stack Re-spin’ feature which pops up during the main game awarding 3 re-spins. Any extra Dragon wilds that appear will stick to the reels offering additional payouts.
The slots boasts a Free Spins feature as well where up to 20 free spins can be won. It’s played when 3 Bonus symbols appear any position across the reels. Paying symbols on the reels are cards from 10 to Ace, 4 different coloured gemstones, Dragon, wild, Bonus icon, and the Temple. A feature that strikes me is that the layout of the reels are 3x4x4x4x3 which is quite unusual.
The game offers an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.55%. Keep in mind that payouts are proportionate to your average stake per spin, volatility decreases when you play at lower bet levels.
Quickspin has a bunch of customization options starting with a ‘Fast Forward’ button which spins the reels faster when you click on it. The audio of the game didn’t blow me away. To the left of the customization screen you’ll see a small wheel. When you click on it a drop box with additional settings such as ‘Sound’, ‘Use Space for Spin’ and ‘Show Splash Screen on Startup’, is displayed. Ensure that you play the slots with all 40 lines activated so that you can gain the most from it payout wise.
The video slot employs ‘Both Ways Win’ technology which has the propensity to boost wins once a bonus game is initiated.
Dragon Stack Re-spins
When the Dragon or wilds appear fully stacked on reel 1 during the main game they stick to the reels offering 3 re-spins. Should additional Dragon/wilds appear on reels 1 to 5 they stick to the reels too. The crux of the matter is the more Dragons that stick to the reels the bigger the cash prize they pay.
The free spins bonus mode is triggered when 3Bonus symbols pitch any position (reels 3, 4 and 5) on the reels-10 free spins are awarded. The nice thing about this bonus game is that the Dragon Stack Re-spin feature can be triggered during it as well boosting wins by a hefty margin. That is when you hit a slew of Dragons appear on the first or fifth reel mirroring the remainder of the reels, 3 re-spins will given. If you hit an extra 3 Bonus symbols whilst the free spins mode is underway you’ll win another 10 free spins making it 20 in total.
Dragon Shrine does not contain all the bells and whistles but boy does it pay well at the highest bet levels. Base game wins are good thanks to the Dragon Stack Re-spins feature, as always the biggest cash prizes are reserved for the free spins. It’s nice to see that Quickspin keeps on churning out slots with arresting themes and innovative game mechanics.
