The slot’s volatility is medium to high and its RTP is 96.01%.
Dragon & Phoenix Slot Features
- Chinese Theme. The slot has a distinctly Chinese feel to it and is set against a red, blue and purple hazy background with temple buildings and statues in the distance. The gaming grid and most of the symbols that appear on it are appropriately themed.
- 20 Paylines. In order to win, you need to have three or more matching symbols appear on any one of the slot’s 20 paylines. These paylines all run from left to right only. This means that the chain of matching symbols needs to start on the leftmost reel; also, the symbols need to be on adjacent reels to count.
- Symbols. As you spin the reels, there are 11 standard symbols that you can form winning combinations with. Among the low-paying symbols are four card ranks, an orb being clutched by a dragon’s claw, a small pagoda and an ornate green dragon ornament. Offering better payouts are the number 88 in red and blue and a golden bowl. The two most valuable symbols are the dragon and the phoenix. Both of these have the same payout rates and give you prizes worth 500x your bet should you land five on a payline. The slot has two other symbols: the gold money tree scatter and the royal couple wild. The scatter offers payouts for three or more anywhere on the grid, while the wild can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and can expand to fill the entire reel it’s on.
- Tumbling Reels. Whenever three or more scatters appear, once you’ve been paid all of the scatters vanish from the grid. The empty spaces left behind are then filled with symbols falling from above. This may result in new winning combinations being formed.
- Free Spins. To earn free spins, you need to have three or more gold money tree scatters appear anywhere on the reels. You get one free spin for every scatter that lands.
- Double Or Nothing. If you happen to win during the base game, you can hit the ‘DOUBLE UP’ button to gamble your winnings. You can gamble half or all your winnings as many times as you wish. To gamble, simply guess the outcome of a coin toss. Guess correctly and your gambled money will be doubled; guess incorrectly and you’ll lose your gambled money. If you guess correctly, you can either gamble again or collect your winnings and return to the base game.
