Red Dragon is Blueprint Gaming’s take on the Chinese-themed mobile slots game, released in 2013. It keeps the action moving with free spins and bonus rounds.
This is a 5-reel, 50-payline with a top payline of a fiery £250,000. Players can bet anywhere from one coin to 1000 coins per line. So those timid souls who fear the dragon can play with just a single coin at stake per spin while others can challenge the wickedly fanged guardian with 50,000 coins on each spin. There is an Auto Play option and a Turbo selection to keep up with the pace of your no doubt racing pulse.
Red dragons are prickly beasts, imbued by a quick temper and are formidable foes in battle. If they tangle in the sky storms are sure to follow. If you have something that needs protecting you can scarcely do better than a red dragon so you are going to have to bring your best to sneak winnings past this fellow with a bad attitude.
You are on the lookout for traditionally-themed Chinese martial symbols such as nunchucks and ninja stars and the graphic imitation of the philosophy of Yin and Yang. A fighting Ninja explodes onto the reels as the Wild and he commands all other symbols except the fabled Red Dragon. There is an Auto Play feature so you do not have to take your eyes of the snarling beast to your certain detriment.
And it is the Red Dragon that demands attention. He is the scatter and if he roars into view on any of Reels 1, 2 or 3 you are off to a special symbol-rich screen bursting with stacked Gold Dragon symbols and clumped Wilds for 15 free spins. Free spins cannot be re-triggered during the Free Spins bonus – 15, that’s all you get. Do not test the patience of the red dragon with your voracious appetite for riches.
But if the Red Dragon scatter again shows up on Reels 1, 2 or 3 while in Free Spins mode you have reached the Enter The Dragon Bonus. Here the temperamental dragon disables the countdown on your remaining spins. It will not work! All you can do is keep spinning and piling up awards until the red dragon decides you have won enough and comes back on Reel 3 to put the countdown in motion again. The colour red does not always symbolize death and danger, in Red Dragon it can sometimes it mean joy and celebration.
