The wombat says: Yeah, can I have a spring roll and a number 35 with fried rice please? For pick up. Oh, hang on, this isn’t my local Chinese takeaway, but a 5-reel slot game from NextGen set in the Far East! I do apologise…
High card symbols are joined by lotus flowers, firecrackers, Koi Carp and Chinese lanterns in this traditional slot, as well as the games’ fiery namesake; the Eastern Dragon. The symbols kind of remind us of Astro Cat, but that’s a whole different game.
Thankfully this scaly beast doesn’t just torch down houses and terrorise villagers with his fiery breath, but provides you with untold riches too…
Bets range from 0,01 to 15 per line, and there are 20 pay lines to play with – although you can alter the number of lines to suit your mood. The Koi is the most valuable symbol, scooping you 3000 coins for 5 in a row! While the 9 or 10 will win you 100.
Don’t expect fancy bonus games or any other off-reel features. Eastern Dragon slot is traditional – but there are some generous free spin rounds that go on forever, so you won’t be disappointed.
The scary-ass firebreather plays the wild symbol here in Eastern Dragon slot.
Appearing on reels 1 and 5, only he is powerful enough to substitute any icon on the screen (except for the scatter, of course).
What’s more, every time Dragon appears on a winning payline, your wins are doubled. I love it when that happens.
The Coin is the scatter symbol. Get 2, 3, 4 or 5 Coins on the reels and multiply your total bet by 1, 5, 20 or 200 times accordingly.
Eastern Dragon Slot Bonus Game
It’s all about the Free Spins here. Get 2 Dragon icons on reels 1 and 5 at the same time, and you’ll trigger 15 Free Spins. All the prizes during this game are tripled, and unlike some games, the Free Spins can be retriggered here, too. We like.
Mobile Eastern Dragon Slot
If you have ever been on the metro in Hong Kong, or should I say MTR, you’ll know that all the peeps there are glued to their phones. It’s worse than London! Maybe they’re all playing the Eastern Dragon slot, because this game blows up nicely on a Samsung and it looks pretty nifty on an iPhone too.
We Wish You Big Luck
I bet you didn’t know that I spoke a smattering of Chinese? Oh yes, when I was a wandering wombat in Wuhan I picked up a word or two.
Like those symbols on the slot for instance. The top one means “Big” and the bottom one means “Luck”. And they’re in lucky red and gold, even better.
Quite! Our sentiments entirely. We wish you “Big Luck” two times on the Eastern Dragon slot.
Or Big Luck, Big Luck, as they say in Wu Han.
Dragons are considered to be the Chinese symbols of honour, fortune and generosity, so get spinning! And you know which is the luckiest colour in China? Red of course.
This wombat likes the old fashioned simplicity of the slot – sometimes those fancy features can get tiresome – and the 15 Free Spins feature is awesome.
