Dragon Champions Slots

It is a tale as old as time itself. A band of brave, skilled adventurers come together to undertake a challenge no one else would dare dream of doing! As it turns out, our heroic group has been tasked to defeat the fierce, crimson dragon that is troubling the nearby kingdom. Will they succeed in defeating the massive lizard, and take their share of the vast loot he has stolen during his long lifespan? We can only hope they will be successful since our share of the treasure depends on their success! Dragon Champions by Playtech is played on a 6x4 playing field with 4,096 ways to win. The slot’s bonuses include expanding symbols and free spins with some awesome retrigger potential.

How to Play

The graphics are decent, but we are not particularly impressed. Our biggest gripe are the massive reels that block the view of the background image. You can see the massive pile of gold hidden away, deep within the dragon’s lair. An awesome way to solve this problem would be to make the reels transparent. We do like the animations when icons expand using the Dragonfire feature, and when the dragon finally makes an appearance. Dragon Champions is played on a bigger than usual 6x4 playing field. Wins are granted by collecting three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. Scatters do not heed this rule, but they can only trigger a special feature and do not have a cash prize of their own.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can wager between $0.40 up to $80 per spin, which is a decent bet spread for high rollers and mid-range gamblers, but a bit steep for casual players. The game has high volatility, and an RTP of 95.12%, and that is below average compared to other titles by the same developer.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include playing card royals 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as the enigmatic wizard, the beautiful archer, the proud knight, the mighty warrior, and the fierce dragon they came together to slay. The slot’s logo is the Wild symbol, which can substitute for all icons except the Scatter, while a pair of crossed swords behind a shield represents the Scatter symbol. Certain icons can appear with Dragonfire. That means these symbols can expand, replacing icons adjacent to itself horizontally and vertically with itself. This expansion will only occur if it means a winning combination will be formed as a result. Wilds and Scatters cannot be affected by Dragonfire. Collect three, four, five or six Scatters to win 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins. While the extra turns are being played, additional free spins can be won by collecting two or more Scatters from the playing field. During the special feature, any symbols that appear with Dragonfire transform into the dragon, which is the highest paying icon in the whole game.

Our Verdict

Dragon Champions is set in a familiar fantasy story and makes use of it wonderfully. Expanding symbols with the Dragonfire bonus is immensely satisfying, and watching a heap of dragons appear on the reels during free spins is even more so.
