Slot tester's review: Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Mega Dragon fills the screen with rows and rows of symbols as they drop down to create winning blocks and maybe some big wins.

Created by Red Tiger Gaming, Mega Dragon was released in 2019 as a new non-standard slot. The game comes with a massive 8-reel, 7-row playing field. The game doesn’t use any paylines but instead looks for clusters of symbols to calculate a win.

The slot reminded me a lot of Tiger and Dragon by Red Rake Gaming due to its large playing field and similar theme but there are quite a lot of differences between the two. I should start by saying that I think Mega Dragon is a lot better than its counterpart!

As for its presentation, the game leaves some things to be desired. The graphics are clear and sharp but it’s also largely uninspiring. The setting of an Asian temple to frame the reels is a tired trope and the background of rock formations in the mist isn’t particularly original either. Nonetheless, it makes it very clear what the game is based on.

The game has a respectable soundtrack that is comparable to the graphics: it’s nothing very special but it’s well done nonetheless. There is a subtle Asian sounding melody playing in the background while wins get a short jingle.

Symbols

The game uses a collection of simple symbols that can be divided into low-paying and high-paying symbols. The low-paying symbols are the ordinary high-cards, drawn in a way to resemble the Chinese alphabet. Meanwhile, the high-paying symbols are rather abstract depictions of Asian cultural items. I wouldn’t call the symbols to be particularly original and they don’t even fit the theme that well. The only dragon in the game is the Wild symbol.

From highest to lowest they are:

  • Wild: Substitutes all other symbols. Two Wilds next to each other triggers one of 3 different dragon features.
  • Pot: Max. 888 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Coins: Max. 388 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Dish: Max. 288 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Scroll: Max. 200 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Ace: Max. 150 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • King: Max. 120 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Queen: Max. 100 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • Jack: Max. 88 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.
  • 10: Max. 60 coins with 25 or more symbols in a cluster.

Even though there aren’t that many different symbols, the large playing field and the cluster mechanic means that it has a High Volatility.

Features

With such a large playing field the game almost has to have a collection of strange features, right? Luckily it’s not that bad and I found the game to be pretty easy to figure out.

The main features are:

  • Cluster Wins: Wins are awarded when getting 5 or more of the same symbol to touch each other either vertically or horizontally. The bigger the cluster, the bigger the win.
  • Cascading Reels: Whenever a win is created, the symbols involved disappear and cause the symbols above to drop down, filling the reels up with new symbols. This continues as long as new wins are created.
  • Wilds: When a cluster awards a win, it can add a Wild to the game. Wilds substitute all other symbols in the game. When you get 2 or more Wilds to touch, they award a Dragon Bonus.
  • Random Wilds: One of the Dragon Bonuses is the Golden Dragon, which adds a couple of random Wilds to the playing field.
  • Random Symbols: One of the Dragon Bonuses is the Green Dragon, which randomly clones a high-paying symbol onto the screen.
  • Colossal Symbols: One of the Dragon Bonuses is the Red Dragon, which turns a high-paying symbol into a 2x2 colossal symbol.

As you can probably tell, a lot of the game’s features hinge around the Wilds that are added to the game. Wilds don’t appear naturally during your time playing as they don’t drop down from above. Instead, they are created semi-randomly whenever you get a win. I say semi-randomly because in my experience it would happen about 50% of the time, which means it was quite frequent.

Wilds act like regular symbols in that they drop down as wins are created. When they are part of a win they generally stay on the playing field which is how you get the Dragon Bonus! Getting 2 Wilds next to each other sounds harder than it is and it actually happened to me quite often. There is even a random wilds feature that would sometimes help facilitate another Dragon Bonus and so on.

There’s not much else I can say about these features. If you’re familiar with the cascading reels mechanic it functions exactly how you’d expect. Anything more than 5 of the same symbol together will result in a win, often creating a Wild. Get 2 Wilds together and 1 of 3 random dragons appears to grant another bonus.

The High Volatility does show in this style of game. Although I would get some smaller wins sometimes, the few times the game would create cluster after cluster, adding more and more Wilds to the playing field were the spins where I would get truly impressive wins.

In Conclusion

Mega Dragon is a good but basic slot that’s intended for people that aren’t particularly big fans of the classic slot experience. There are no paylines here and the playing field is obviously a lot bigger. The cascading reels make it difficult to predict where and when you’ll get any big wins but when they show up they’re always a welcome surprise.

I found the graphics and sound to be acceptable but nothing worth specifically mentioning. The game has a number of extra features that we’ve come to expect from modern slots like quick spin and auto-spin.

If you’re a player that is looking for something different but not too different, Mega Dragon will be a perfect fit. The game moves away from the classic slot experience without introducing too many new elements. Experienced players will probably have seen it before, but it still offers a nice change!

With the ability to pick a bet between £0.10 and £200, players have some room to pick a bet they’re comfortable with. The max. win of 3,888x your bet was quite impressive but considering the high volatility probably a long shot to win.

Overall rating:

3.2
