The majestic beast is back on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming and it is more ferocious than ever. On Dragon’s Fire Megaways, the creature is reigning over six reels instead of the five from the original Dragon’s Fire slot, which was released in 2018. The dragon will unleash a random Fire Blast to burn wilds or scatters onto the reels while his giant eye might appear to grant a Dragon’s Eye Boost to the progressive Dragon’s Egg Multiplier which increases by x1 on every winning reaction. Trigger the free spins and the multiplier will never reset and could lead to wins in excess of 10,000 times your bet.
Dragon’s Fire Megaways is a video slot with six reels, featuring up to seven rows and up to 117,649 ways to win. At the start of every spin sequence, the Megaways game engine will randomly select between two and seven symbols for each of the six reels, creating any number of ways to win from 324 up to the maximum. Wins are then awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only. The symbols from a winning combination explode to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. The chain reaction will continue as long as a new winning combination occurs after a cascade.
Everyone who played the original Dragon’s Fire slot will think how the game studio could possibly improve the impeccable graphics and visuals. But this is Red Tiger Gaming we are talking about, hence, expect another feast for the eyes and ears. The majestic dragon is watching now from the right of the intricate game window while his wings are spread around it. He will take off in an earth-shattering manner when the random features are triggered. The intense soundtrack is minutely synchronized to the action on the reels.
All regular pay symbols can appear as single or stacked symbols. They start at the low end with four differently shaped dragon eggs in blue, green, red and golden colours, awarding 0.50x to 1x your bet for a single six of a kind. Matching the colours of the eggs are four baby dragons at the medium level, giving you 1.6x to 5x your stake when six land across the reels. The premium symbol is the dragon’s eye, paying 50x your bet for a 6OAK.
A blazing icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols while an equally intricate icon resembling frozen ice and marked with “Free Spins” acts as the scatter.
Red Tiger transferred the entire set of features from the original to the Megaways slot. With more reels and ways to win, they can have now an even larger impact on potential wins. First up is the random Fire Blast, which can trigger at the start of any spin in the base game. The dragon will lift off and breath fire on up to four reels to turn a random number of symbols either into wilds or scatters, providing more chances to hit big wins or trigger the bonus round.
The key to hitting mega wins remains the Dragon’s Egg Multiplier. The red dragon egg on the right will activate following a winning reaction to award progressive win multipliers of up to x50. The count will start with the second reaction within a spin sequence, increasing the multiplier by x1 for each consecutive winning reaction. It will reset back to x1 once a spin sequence concludes. And there is more as a huge dragon’s eye can randomly appear on the reels to award a Dragon’s Eye Boost, which will increase the current win multiplier by a random factor between x1 and x10.
Hit three or more scatters anywhere in one spin sequence to trigger the Free Spins feature. The game will present you with three baby dragons, each hiding a random number of free spins between 6 and 20, which can be retriggered. You can make one pick to reveal how many free spins you have won. Any active progressive multiplier on the triggering spin will be transferred from the base game to the round and will not reset after a non-winning free spin. However, it will keep progressing by x1 after every winning reaction.
The last multiplier from the free spins will be transferred back to the base game, where it will continue to grow if you subsequently hit more wins on the following base game spins. It will only reset to x1 after the first losing spin. Worth noting again is that the win multiplier is limited to x50.
What is there not to like about this slot? Superb visuals, entertaining gameplay, plenty of suspenseful moments when the features trigger and on top Megaways action. Well, Dragon’s Fire would be the near-perfect slot were it not for the well-below average RTP. The difference might not be substantial but it will have a significant impact on the playtime you will get with your balance. We still like the game but might just stick to other Megaways slots which offer higher RTPs.
