Asian Themed slot with cool bonus feature
Golden Dragon Inferno offers an enthralling voyage into a mythical world teeming with bountiful opportunities and exciting surprises. It successfully delivers a captivating Eastern Asian theme coupled with a unique “243 Ways” game structure, promising virtually unlimited combinations of winning symbols on every spin. RTP is decent at 96.41%, slightly above average for casino slots.
Payers are greeted with soothing, dream-like Eastern Asian music, perfectly complemented by the cheerful clinking sounds of the slot machines. The balance between tranquillity and exhilaration sets the tone for an engrossing gaming experience, that can suck you in.
Each reel contains Stacked Mystery symbol positions that will get replaced with one random symbol after the spin is complete. All Mystery symbol positions will get filled with the same kind of symbol per spin, and any high or low-paying symbol can serve this purpose.
Nudging Multiplier Wild Reel
Dragon is the Wild Reel and appears on reel 3 only. During the base game, if the stack of Wild Reel appears partially, it will nudge up or down to create a full Wild Reel on reel 3. Full Wild Reel awards a random multiplier that ranges between x2 and x10 the bet. Multiplier Wild Reel can substitute for the same symbols as the regular Wild.
If there is no win with the Multiplier Wild Reel you will have a second chance where the symbol is held in place on reel 3 while a respin occurs for the remaining 4 reels. Hold & Win bonus cannot trigger at the same time as the Nudging Multiplier Wild Reel.
Hold & Win
Hitting 6 or more Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Hold & Win Bonus where you will get a chance to win one of the Jackpots. When the round starts you will get awarded with 3 respins. Each time a new Bonus symbol hits on the grid, it will lock in place and the respins count will reset back to 3, and the feature will end when you either run out of the spins or when all positions are filled with 15 Bonus symbols.
Bonus symbol will take on a random value that ranges between 1.25 and 12.50 or appear as a Mini, Minor or Major jackpot value. If you lock all 15 positions with Bonus symbols, you will get awarded with Grand Jackpot which is a prize of 2000x
Despite its many merits, the game does have a few areas for improvement. The base game offers hypnotic calm slots play, but could be seen by some players as slightly monotonous without the presence of mini-games or more interactive features seen on some of the recent slots from Microgaming or NetEnt. A traditional free spin bonus would be nice in addition to the Hold and Win bonus. Additionally, for some players, the high volatility of the game may be a deterrent as it can result in longer periods between substantial wins.
Golden Dragon Inferno isn’t the most complex game but we enjoyed it a lot. It’s calm to play with traditional Asian background music and nice golden symbols. The nudging multiplier wilds are pretty cool and it’s pretty exciting when the bonus hits, especially with the respins and the chance to win the ‘grand prize’
