[miau] For those who want great graphics, intense sound effects and an all-around good game, the 50 Dragons Slot is perfect. It focuses its gaming on the East and the mysterious nature of the Oriental culture. Some gamers confuse the popular game ‘5 Dragon’s Slot’ with this one, but the two games are vastly different. Both games were created by Aristocrat, but the game play is quite diverse and 50 Dragons is leaps and bounds ahead. When referencing 50 Dragons, the “50” is the number of pay lines that are available, so there is the ability to make more with this game. It is simple, yet it is quite entertaining too. Aristocrat is an Australian based company that has started to make a name for itself in the gaming industry.
50 Dragons is a five reel slot with fifty pay lines and a game screen that is visually appealing. The picture in the background is faint, but it is suggestive of a style of Chinese scenery art, which most will be well acquainted with. The whole Oriental feel is a welcomed visual appeal from some games out there. It has many animals’ symbols throughout the game including a fish, lion, monkey and even a tiger. Getting the lion will be the most valuable with a worth of over 1000x the line stake. Getting the wild symbol is a golden stand with a pearl resting on it. There are many ways to win on this game, but the bonus rounds are not as elaborate and lucrative as in other games.Part of the most appealing part of the game is the Gold ingots, or dragons. They make their appearance on the first three reels, landing all three of these dragons will trigger a bonus. In the free spin section, there is an extra pearl that is a wild card, and it is added to the first four reels on each spin. By the tenth spin, a player should have the ability to accumulate a good deal of money from the wild-relating spin feature. A player can also re-trigger additional spins, up to five at once. However, no multiplier value applies to the winnings.
There is the ability to get free spins in the free spin bonus rounds. A player can get up to 10 free games by having the scatter symbol appear in a group of 3. It also has the ability to re-trigger another 5 free spins and there is another extra wild section on reels 2-5. It can be 2 free spins or 5, it is just the luck of the draw. While there isn’t a whole lot of adventure on the bonus sections, it does prove to be lucrative.
The payouts it pretty good on this game. When the Dragon symbols are stacked on all reels, the payout will be well. The player can customize their game a bit. There is the option to play anywhere between 5-50 lines at a time. The machine denominations are all over the place, especially since this one is marketed worldwide, but most start at 5 cents. However, as most players have learned by now, the more that is bet the higher the payouts are when the bonus symbols appear on screen.
