This Quickspin Dragon Shrine slot machine, with its 5 reels, bright colours, and simple bonus features, aims to provide plenty of action.
But the question is, does it succeed? Overall, that’s a resounding yes from us.
It has a 5 reel layout that doesn’t follow the normal 5×3 or 5×4 convention, but actually mixes the two, with 3 symbols high on reels 1 and 5 and 4 reels high on the three center reels.
This Dragon Shrine slot brighten up any casino screen, a typical Quickspin slot game, in other words.
The golden background to the reels, with the light and airy sparkles, mixed together with the ambient music, give you a game that’s fun to look at and interesting to spin.
The fact that the jewel style symbols and the golden wild symbol come stacked helps create some big win combinations. We’ve gotten 10x – 20x our bet during the base game quite frequently, which is more than could be said for when we played others, such as the Egyptian Rise slot, for example.
Mix in the fact that there’s a special Dragon Shrine free re-spin feature which takes advantage of the higher paying dragon symbol, and you’ve suddenly have one very good reason to keep playing.
If you manage to get a full stack of the red and gold dragon symbols on reel 1, you’ll be rewarded with 3 free re-spins.
The dragon symbols will remain sticky and any other dragon symbols you get during the free re-spins will also lock in place.
This can, in theory, create a full screen of dragon symbols for some truly big wins, but mainly you’ll get a few extra three and four of a kind winning combinations.
However, things get more interesting when they show up in the Dragon Shrine free spins bonus round.
Find three of the round green bonus symbols across the reels and you’ll get 10 free spins. Here the Dragon Shrine slot bonus feature becomes an even bigger beast.
If you fill reel 1 with dragon symbols, then now they will also transfer to reel 5, and you’ll get two out of the five reels full of dragons.
You then spin your 3 free spins like before, but with greater chance of creating several 5 of a kind slot wins.
A feature that, when it does show up, will get the adrenaline rushing a little faster and can create some decent winning amounts.
Not only that, but the reels become Win Both Ways reels; meaning you get even more opportunity to get some wins from left to right and right to left.
Basically, you win far easier on the free spins, much like in IGT online slots, except in Dragon Shrine the free spins are much easier to catch.
This is a bright and colourful slot machine that with those stacked symbols, the re-spins and free spins, provides plenty of entertainment.
A minimum bet of 0.20 for a 40 payline machine is rare ,as usually the casino software providers like to at least go with 0.40 for this amount of lines.
But what that means is you get more action for less.
With a return to player rate of 96.55%, this medium variance machine will reward you throughout your spins.
Go play the Dragon Shrine mobile slot, or play online, at your favourite Quickspin casino today and find out if this mix of new and old will give you some lucky wins on a smaller budget.
