About Raging Dragon’s Slot
Ancient China is a very common theme in video slots, providing inspiration for everyone from Red Tiger to Quickspin. iSoft Bet have produced a few of them down the years, taking the traditional colors, landscapes and icons of the culture to from some stunning looking games. Here, the fire-breathing animals that give the slot it’s name provide both visual stimulus and thrilling gameplay as they trigger wild and multiplier events throughout the base and bonus rounds.
The artwork here is simply breathtaking with beautiful mountains and pagodas in the background, as traditional music provides the perfect soundtrack. The game comes with five reels, three rows and offers 243 ways to win. To win payouts, players need to land matching symbols on at least three successive reels, beginning from the far-left reel.
If you want to start spinning then you can bet from 20p per play.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
Raging Dragons is a high variance game, meaning that payouts will not be evenly distributed – so beware of this, and the potential long spells of very little returns. If you are looking for a casual spin on a regular paying slot then we suggest you look elsewhere.
The RTP of the game is 96% and the top prize is set at 12,150x, which can be unlocked with the help of the multipliers carried by Dragon Wilds.
Symbols and Paytable
Low value symbols are neatly designed 9-A playing cards, which pay between 5x and 10x for five of a kind. As for premium symbols, we have lovely vases, jade animal sculptures, ships, horses, and fans.
High-value symbols reward players from 15x to 50x stake for the maximum combination. Five dragons of different colours (blue, purple, green, red, and gold) will appear on the reels and substitute for all regular symbols. The jade orb is the Scatter that triggers free spins, whilst the red envelope delivers instant prizes.
Gameplay and Features
If you prefer video slots that offer a lot of features then you will love Raging Dragons. In fact, despite making its treasures very hard to unlock, this slot does give quite regular events in the base game so you won’t get bored whilst waiting to hit the free spins round.
Lucky Envelope Feature
The Lucky Envelope feature is triggered randomly and can occur on any spin. Once the envelope appears on the reels, it will open and reward you with an instant win. Four kinds of prizes can be yours – 8x, 88x, 888x, or 8,888x stake.
Wild Dragon Feature
Depending on which of the reels a Wild appears, they can carry multipliers. So, reels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 offer Wilds with 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x multipliers. Any time a win includes one of those wilds, then the multiplier is applied to the win total.
Free Spins Feature
Now we come to the central attraction of the game. The Free Spins feature is triggered with three or more jade orb Scatters on the reels. Now you can pick from between six different options:
- Get 25 free spins with wild multipliers 2x, 3x, and 5x.
- Get 20 free spins with 3x, 5x, or 8x multiplier Wilds.
- Get 15 free spins and you get wilds with 5x, 8x, and 10x multipliers.
- Get 13 free spins, you get 8x, 10x, or 15x wild multipliers.
- Get 10 free spins and get 10x, 15x, or 30x wild multipliers.
- The sixth option is the mystery one, and you will get random free spins and wild multipliers.
Finally, note that three or more Scatters retrigger the feature, whilst 1 or 2 Scatters landed get you 2 or 4 extra free spins.
In a very crowded niche of the slots market, iSoft Bet have created a Chinese-themed game that holds its own thanks to stunning visuals, a great soundtrack, and a compelling mix of multipliers and free spins that gives a really competitive potential of over 12,000x per spin. Whilst this does not put Raging Dragon’s up there with some of the biggest new high variance slots on the market, it does still give any player something decent to aim at, though of course we should note that wins that big will be very, very rare indeed. And of course, in the base game, the random Envelopes can also lay down some very tasty treats if you get that lucky. All in, we really enjoyed this one – top marks to iSoft Bet for another great slot in 2021.
