The 50 Dragons video slot machine is a five reel, 50 payline game introduced by Aristocrat gaming in January 2015. The name is derived from the number of paylines in the game, rather than from the Dragon symbol.
The payout rate is 94.71%, however, whilst playing this game it is possible to fill the entire screen with Golden Dragon symbols and win the top jackpot 50 times on that screen. This is a medium volatility slots game.
Symbols and Dragons
The reels on Aristocrat’s 50 Dragons slot machine include the Golden Dragon symbols, the scattered Gold Ingots and the Wild Pearl symbols. The theme in 50 Dragons is all about the money on the reels.
Loosely based on Aristocrat’s highly popular 50 Lions Slot Machine, the 50 Dragons slot is a respectable follow-up game. The graphics and sound, along with the rich colours and varied symbols, make 50 Dragons a fun and rewarding slot machine to play.
This slot machine is available at selected casino sites in free play mode, as well as, obviously, for real money. The free play option is useful in terms of gaining an understanding of the machine itself and indulging in practice, thus allowing players to become comfortable with the atmosphere and nuances of the game.
The coin denomination range on this machine is broad, and ranges from 0.01 to 2, making the minimum bet 0.5 coins and the maximum 100 coins.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The Golden Dragon symbol in 50 Dragons is the top paying symbol on this slot machine. The Golden Dragon symbols are a stacked symbol in this game, which effectively means that more than one can appear on the same reel at the same time.
The Gold Ingot Symbol is the Scatter symbol in this slots game. Three Gold Ingots appearing anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3 initiates the objective of the Free Spins Bonus Feature. Gold Ingots can only appear on reels 1, 2 and 3 and pay, as a scatter win, four times the total credits bet on the spin. Any scatter wins are added to base game wins when playing the Free Spins Bonus.
The Pearl symbol is the Wild symbol in the 50 Dragons video slot game. As a Wild symbol, the Pearl substitutes for all symbols except the Gold Ingot scatter symbol in creating winning combinations. The Wild Pearl symbol is available on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Three Gold Ingot Scatter symbols activate the 50 Dragons Free Spins Bonus Feature. Players are rewarded with 10 free spins of the 50 Dragons slot machine.
The Free Spins bonus feature can be re-triggered by landing another three Gold Ingot symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3. Should this occur, players will be rewarded with additional 5 free spins. The bonus feature can only be re-triggered once in the 50 Dragons slot.
The real beauty of the 50 Dragons slot Free Spins bonus is that on each free spin a wild Pearl symbol is added to the reel. During the free spins the Wild symbol becomes stacked which can lead to huge wins, meaning that this game can be as lucrative to players as poker, online blackjack or even craps!
The stacked Wild Pearl symbol, in addition to the already stacked Golden Dragons symbol, is a formula for some significant pay outs. Re-trigger the bonus, and even more wilds are added to reels.
