House of Dragons slot from Microgaming

House of Dragons slot from Microgaming
As 2012 was the Chinese year of the Water Dragon, the same year Microgaming Company appropriately released the House of Dragons slot machine. In Chinese culture, the dragon stands for unhuman power, strength, health, and good luck. You mainly need the last of these attributes to be successful in this machine, and of course, a healthy heart when you land 5 Wild Dragons, which will award you 10 000 coins. There are no Free Spins, but to compensate there are two types of Wilds: One regular kind and another, which doubles all wins it’s involved in. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

Scatters will get you to a Bonus round with cash prizes and a chance to multiply your winnings. This brightly coloured slot is just plain old-school Asian-themed entertainment, which only requires the Chinese Dragon to live up to its promises and bring you good fortune. However, you should mind the poor RTP of 94.8% that comes with this Medium Volatility 20 liner.

Try the House of Dragons slot machine first for free in the DEMO mode on our site, no registration necessary.

Personal testers’ opinion

House of Dragons slot machine comes with not very promising and fair gameplay (remember the poor RTP). Modest paytable (except for both types Wilds of course), but no Free Spins, and during the bonus round - you cannot influence the Archer's aiming, so what the RNG (Random Number Generator) prescribed for your upcoming shoot - that's what you are getting. For a simple game with a total of 11 symbols, Microgaming succeeded to make confusion and frustrate the players. Which Wild replaces what, which is the Scatter, and which is the bonus trigger? And most importantly all symbols, but 1 (the Fan Scatter, which also has no value on its own), pay only when are on payline. So, don’t be tricked that any 5OAK Wilds will make you rich, no - first check if they belong to one of the 20 announced win lines! Altogether House of Dragons slot machine is to be played only in the free credits mode.
