The set of reels and lines in the Jewel of the Dragon slot is just a little bit different than most slot games today. In addition to five reels, you will find 40 paylines and four rows on each reel. You can’t change the number of paylines. What you can change is the size of the total bet. You can play with as little as €0.4 and as much as €200 per spin. So, you will get at least €0.01 per line or up to €5 per line.
In addition to the purple/gold play button, you will also notice an auto-play button in the same colors next to it. Click this button if you want to set a number of auto-play spins and win/loss limits. Selecting the question mark will provide more information about the slot.
Nine standard symbols await players in the Jewel of the Dragon slot. The classic playing card icons in different colors belong to the lower part of the paytable. They all pay the same maximum prize for five matching playing card icons on a line – 50 times the line bet. The same goes for the minimum prize (for three identical playing card icons on a payline) – 5 times the line bet. The only different thing is the prize for four symbols of the same kind on the line – 10, 15, or 20 times your line bet depending on the symbol.
In the upper part of the paytable, you will find a bell that delivers 8, 25, or 75 times your line bet for three, four, or five bells on a payline respectively. The crown promises 15, 25, or 75 times the line bet while the purple dollar sign on a shield will provide the same prizes as the crown.
What’s interesting is that the wild icon is the highest paying symbol – five of these wild icons on a single line will provide 100 times the line bet.
As for the Jewel of the Dragon bonus features, you should expect a few unique ones. Before we explain them, keep in mind that the ornated green wild sign is a wild icon that replaces standard symbols whenever it can help players complete winning combinations.
At the end of each spin, before the pays are evaluated, Hot Zones can land anywhere on the reels and every symbol that’s part of these zones will transform into a wild symbol. In case the Hot zone ends on a Dragon Bonus icon, that icon will become wild too. Finally, if it ends up on a Diamond overlay it will turn into a Wild Diamond.
Next, three diamond overlays or wild diamonds anywhere in view will activate the Drop Zone Bonus feature where bonus drop zones appear and turn icons into wilds, dragon bonus icons into bonus wilds, and diamond overlays into wild diamonds. If the Hot Zone Patterns appear outside of the reels, you might get access to the Dragon Nudge Bonus feature that will provide more wild icons.
Furthermore, landing three or more dragon bonus or bonus wild icons on the reels will activate eight Jewel of the Dragon free spins and a reward worth 1, 2, or 5 times the total bet (depending on the number of triggering symbols). At random, the game can award one of the three progressive jackpot awards (Mega Drop).
The Jewel of the Dragon RTP is not fixed. You can expect an RTP between 94.37% and 94.51 without Mega Drop and between 96.37% and 96.51% with Mega Drop. There is medium volatility in this online slot which means that you can expect a satisfactory number of wins and decent prizes.
