Dragon Born is not exactly a fantasy title, though it has certain elements which suggest this, including the presence of a dragon among the symbols. For the most part it’s going to be a slot machine with a medieval influence, with nobility, knights and kings among its symbols.
The design is nothing to die for, but on the feature side the game looks great, offering a lot of new options and a different way of playing the slot. As many as 117,659 megaways are used instead of paylines, with up to 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels. A top prize of up to $2,000 awaits the player that tries out this Big Time Gaming slot.
What We Love
The first thing you will notice about this game is that it’s unlike any other slot you might’ve played so far. It not only has 6 reels instead of the standard 5, but it uses as many as 7 symbols on each one. It’s a random number of symbols for each reel though, between 1 and 7, so you might have only a few hundred ways to win, or you might get the full number of 117,649. Combinations form like they do in any other slot with ways to win, using symbols that are on neighboring reels, and starting from the left side.
One of the things I enjoyed taking advantage of in this slot is called a Full Reel Wild. It’s a wild symbol that will take over an entire reel, and while doing so there is a chance that it will apply a multiplier as high as 7x, though just as easily it could be 1x. A maximum of two full reel wilds can be present on the screen during the same round, and if both contribute with a 7x multiplier, the total will be 49x.
As most slots do these days, Dragon Born has scatter symbols as well, which will trigger free spins if they appear in at least three spots during the same spin. You can win 6 to 50 free spins, for a trigger of 3 to 6 scattered Diamonds. You get both stacked and single wilds during these free spins, and each Diamond scatter that appears adds one extra free spin to the total.
What We Do Not Like
I’m not a big fan of the design that the game uses. Some of the symbols don’t look too bad, but it’s not the case for most of them, and I know that medieval themes can be made to look a lot better than this.
Play the game for its huge prizes of up to $98,000, for its very unusual megaways system and for the 6 reel layout, but don’t expect the design to be as good as the rest of the slot.
