Floating Dragon Megaways
Floating Dragon Megaways slot takes EU players to ancient China. Pragmatic Play expertly conveys the visuals of the period across the reels with a splash of different colours. The jackpot of the slot is 20,000x the stake.
The online slot plays out on a grid with 6 reels and 3 rows with 4 symbols each. As you spin the reels you can unlock the reels on any random spin. More interestingly, the grid expands to a maximum of 147,4546 ways to win.
Pragmatic Play kits Floating Dragon Megaways slot with a Hold & Spin feature. The fun continues with a Tumble Feature, Fish Money Symbol, Mystery Symbols, and Free Spins.
Finally, there’s a feature buy option available for players to jump straight into the free spins.
The RTP of the Floating Dragon Megaways slot is 96.70%. However, the volatility tips the Whizz’s slots on a 10’er. It’s a case of buyer beware before you start spinning.
You can play the slot online for low or high stakes from $0.20 to $250 per spin. The hit frequency of the Floating Dragon Megaways slot is 20%. So, expect a payout on every 5th spin.
When a bunch of matching symbols land on the grid you will receive a cash prize. The low-value symbols on the reels are the card suits from 10 to Ace. The top symbols are the different types of kites and the ship.
Payouts ensue when 6 matching symbols pitch with payouts ranging from 0.5x to 50x the stake. The Wild symbols substitute symbols during winning combinations.
When an array of matching symbols populate the reels the Tumble Feature kicks in. The winning symbols disappear from the grid, shortly after new symbols replace them.
As the new symbols drop they can form new winning combinations. Thus making repeat wins possible. The Tumble feature or the Cascades end when winning combinations no longer occur.
The Fish Money Symbol has a bit of a dual personality in the slot. When it appears in the main game it’s payouts as usual. However, when it appears in the free spins it literally pops for wins of up to 5,000x.
In the main game, the Mystery Symbols on the reels change into matching symbols. The Mystery Symbols can change a symbol when they appear in the Free Spins.
You’ll receive 10, 15, or 20 free spins when 3, 4, 5, or 6 dragon scatters land. The lady symbol collects the value of the fish money symbols.
Now, when 4 lady symbols pitch they award another 10 or more free spins with growing multipliers. The size of the multipliers starts with 2x, 3x to 10x. As you collect the fish symbols so does the multiplier’s value increase.
Interestingly, each retrigger increases the multiplier’s value by +10x. This clearly indicates that the multipliers can grow to insane proportions.
The coin money symbols have values from 1x to 2,000x. Moreover, they’re all over the place, but not at the top of the grid. You’ll initiate the Hold & Spin Bonus when 3 plus coin symbols appear.
The coins that triggered the feature will remain on the reels whilst the rest of the symbols disappear. You’ll pocket 3 respins. Now, for every new coin symbol that lands reset the counter back to 3 respins.
Keep an eye on the diamond symbols because they offer cash rewards of up to 2,000x. If you’ve won less than 20x your stake when the respins end. You’ll receive another 3 respins.
The slot gives you two feature buy options. You can buy the free spins for 100x or the Hold & Spin Bonus for 120x the stake.
When you play slots for real money you should know what the hit frequency means. Especially, when you play as volatile Floating Dragon Megaways. It also helps a lot if you know the 10 common mistakes online slot players make.
The best way to describe the Floating Dragon Megaways slot is, busy. Pragmatic Play juiced it up with a buffet of features. Don’t forget that the size of the grid swells to epic proportions of 147,4546 ways to win.
The bonus rounds offer nothing new or fresh, so to speak. The highlight of the slots package is most probably the free spins feature. With each new retrigger the size of the multipliers grows to 10x+.
We haven’t watched the message boards yet to see if someone “maxed” it out yet. Then again, with a truly humongous jackpot of 20,000x the stake ($5 million), anything is possible.
Remember Bigg Bass Bonanza? Seasoned slot vets would have noticed the same fish symbols that appeared in the slot. It’s safe to say that Pragmatic Play used the same concept here.
Floating Dragon Megaways slot just goes through the motions with all its amenities. We can see what the online casino software had in mind. What spooks us is the severity of the volatility.
If you have the bankroll to risk by all means grab yourself a slice of the action.
