Whats not so hot?
IGT rolled out crisp Chinese-themed slots titled Dragon’s Temple. The game is replete with expanding wilds, quality visual animations and a unique free spins mode that offers you 3 options, but more on it in a bit. The slots features a sturdy 50 paylines, 5 reels and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 1,000 coins. Before you spin the reels keep in mind that it is a high variance game that’s more suitable to medium and high staked players.
Paying symbols on the reels are dragons, koi fish, temples and lanterns. 5 Dragon Temples at the highest bet per spin pays out 1,000 times your stake-may the dragon symbol bring you oodles of luck. In addition to the dragon symbols you’ll also see dancing dragons of various colours. They act as wilds by replacing the other symbols except the scatter. The dragons trigger the Expanding Full-Reel Wild feature, keep a close eye on this innovative streak. The game’s average return to player percentage (RTP) is 95.4%.
In typical IGT fashion the coin range of Dragon’s Temple is diverse making it suitable to players with different bankrolls. You can spin the reels from as little as £$0.50 up to £$600. Customization options such as Auto Play, audio and graphics settings allows you to adjust the game that suits your style of play.
The dancing dragons are the wild symbols, they complete a winning combination when they substitute the other symbols except the scatter. If 3 or more of appear on an active payline they expand to cover the entire reel-prepare yourself for a hefty cash prize when they pop.
If the Yin And Yang scatter icons pitch on reels 2, 3 and 4 the free spins feature is triggered. A new screens opens up giving you 3 free spins options (only one can be picked). You have a choice between:
Of the 3 free spins features I chose the 5 free spins and managed a win of 60x my stake. I find it to be the most lucrative of the lot simply because the wilds remain sticky on reels 1, 3 and 5. Then again regardless of the free spins feature you choose the more wilds that appear on the reels the better the payouts.
In the visual department Dragon’s Temple is not as sharp as the other IGT slots’. I played the game on my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7), it played without any delays at the highest graphic setting. If you play the game on your phone make sure your Wi-Fi connection is on otherwise it will chew up your data bundles in no time. Thumbs up to the vendor with its expanding wilds and 3 different free spins modes. One can see that it tried to come up with something different this time round. All in all it’s quite an enjoyable game but it might spook low rollers because it’s quite tight.
