Dragon Dance, a Chinese themed Microgaming slot, will have for you action which seems to take place during the New Year celebrations. China’s New Year is known for its use of masked actors, dressed as dragons often enough, dancing to entertain the crowds. You can see that on the reels of Dragon Dance, where actors, dragon costumes and firecrackers have all found a place. The game has its share of less impressing symbols, and the theme choice is not an original one. The slot’s features include the scatter, free spins, multipliers, re-spins and wilds. You have 5 reels, 243 ways to win and you can get paid up to $20,000.
Betting and Prizes
A wager placed in Dragon Dance slot will start at only $0.25, but it can reach maximum values of up to $125. You do this by covering 25 virtual lines (replacing 243 ways to win) with 1 to 10 coins per line. Coins have their own values, which you set, between $0.01 and $0.50.
Apparently, the best payout you can normally expect is going to give you 40,000 coins, which should be worth at most $20,000 cash.
Dragon Dance Slot Features
I’d mention the wild symbol first, which you get to use as a substitute, a symbol that appears only on two reels, the 2nd and the 4th ones. Wilds replace only regulars, so they don’t help with the scatter.
That scatter is the one which shows off firecrackers on it. The symbol rewards you with payouts as high as 100x the bet when you have a maximum of five present anywhere. 3+ scattered Firecrackers will give you access to the 15 free spins, their wins coming with 3x multipliers. Retriggering the free spins is a possibility as well.
Respins are also possible, and this is a feature that Microgaming uses in some of their slots. There are buttons marked Respin underneath each reel, and you can pay to respin one of them if you want to, if you’re hoping to land a certain symbol on it, so that some new combo can form. You’re going to have to pay a considerable amount though, especially if the potential for a win is high. The prize for each reel differs, changing based on the possible outcome.
Theme & Design
The theme is based on the New Year of the Chinese, which is known as an event where there are some impressive celebrations taking place. I’d expect anyone to be able to enjoy himself, with all those dragon costumes, firecrackers and actors that are used. The less fun part comes from the poker cards, very basic ones and incredibly boring to look at.
Dragon Dance has lots of things to offer you, but it’s mostly something that will come from its features. Its design and the theme choice leave something to be desired.
