The 8 Dragons Slot is set up like a typical video slot – five reels and three rows. This 5x3 game has 243 ways to win. The betting range of this slot is incredibly high, starting at €1.50 and going up to €3,200.00, a bet that very few people other than high rollers will see. The reason for this massive range is the Supremacy Bets feature.
The normal betting range is from €0.025 to €40. This bet is multiplied by 60, 70 or 80, for one, two, or three Supremacy reels respectively. Each activated Supremacy reel gives out a number of bonuses as well as determining where the Wilds and Scatter symbols will appear. It can take some time to get used to the more complex rules in this game compared to other slots, but it’s also extremely rewarding.
There are 11 normal symbols in this slot. For the 8 Dragons Bonus Symbols, we have a Scatter Symbol, a Free Spins symbol, and 7 variants of the Wild Symbol.
The lowest payout in the game starts from the Green symbol, worth 0.5x for three symbols and 10x for five on a line. The Red, Blue and Yellow symbols have the same lower and upper payout – 0.5x and 10x – but also have a higher payout for four on a line.
After these, we have the Gold and Purple symbols. Both of these pay 1x for three symbols and 20x for five on a line. Just like before, the Purple symbol pays out more for four on a line than the Gold.
The flower symbol pays 1.5x for three and 30x for five on a line. The Golden Bowl symbol pays the same for five symbols but a higher amount, 2x, for three on a line.
The higher value symbols include the Tortoise, the Tiger, and the Phoenix. These three symbols payout 3x, 3.5x, and 5x respectively for three on a line. They pay out 80x, 80x, and 100x for five on a line respectively.
In this game, the Wild Symbol is the Dragon. However, this is no ordinary wild symbol. Rather, there are seven different versions of the Dragon symbol, each a different color and with a different bonus.
To earn the 8 Dragons Free Spins, you need to get the Talisman or the Coin symbols. When the free spin round starts, you will get the option to choose which Dragon to use.
The free spins round will depend on which Dragon you chose. For example, if you picked the Blue Dragon, you would get 13 Free Spins. When acting as a Wild, the Blue Dragon would give out a multiplier of 3.5x or 8x. The White Dragon would give out 25 free spins and a multiplier of 2.3x or 5x. Basically, as the number of free spins increases, the multiplier value decreases.
During the free spins, the same bet value is used that was active when the spins were won. Also, you can win additional free spins during the bonus games!
