Meet Microgaming’s scaly pets in one of its new online video slots – Dragonz. It features 4 animated dragons that harness the power of ice, fire, swamp goo and lightning in 4 Free Spin modes with individualized Wild Features. Dragonz gives players the opportunity to win up to 53.750x the Bet in a single round!
Harness the Elemental Power of Dragonz
Dragonz has as many backgrounds as it does dragons, and its 5-reels are covered in slot symbols consisting of both dragon and card symbols. The Main game background is a neutral environment with green grass and floating islands. Each dragon is animated breathing fire / ice, spitting goo or calling down lightning during Free Spins gameplay. In addition, the dragons are directly involved in the Wild Features individual to each Free Spin type. Flint breathes fire against a backdrop of a tropical island. Frost breathes ice against a glacial environment. Gobble spits sticky goo against a waterfall backdrop. Last but not least, Switch zaps the reels with lightning against a purplish, rocky background
This online slot allows players to adjust a Coin Size (0.01, 0.02, 0.05) and number of Coins (1 – 15) to choose a Total Bet ranging from 40p – £30 at Mr Green online casino. Dragonz Paytable displays cash pays which change as the bet changes.
Dragonz 12 symbols consist of 2 special (a regular Wild and Bonus Scatter), 4 high paying dragons and 6 low paying card symbols. The Wild substitutes for any regular symbol and can award its own pays for a 3 – 5 of a kind symbol match. The Scatter also awards its own pays for a 2 – 5 of a kind symbol match which is applied to the Total Bet. Win at least double or up to 200x the TB. It is also involved in triggering a round of Free Spins. Dragonz 10 regular symbols (highest to lowest value) include: Flint, Switch, Gobble, Frost, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.
The gameplay of Dragonz is from left to right along 243 win ways. Get 2+ Scatters or 3+ matching, adjacent regular or Wild symbols (starting from reel 1) to achieve a winning combination. This online slot’s high paying regular symbols are represented by Flint, Frost, Gobble and Switch. Both Flint and Switch can award from 1.5x – 12.5x the Bet, whereas both Frost and Gobble can award from .75x – 6.25x the Bet. The low paying card symbols (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 & 9) can award from .125x – 3x the Bet. The Scatter is the highest paying symbol. It shows a value of (200, 20, 4, 2) giving Dragonz the potential to award from £80 – £6.000 for a 5 of a kind match at Mr Green online casino.
Dragonz Bonus Features
- Wild Deal Feature: During gameplay, this Feature triggers when a spin does not produce a win and has at least 1 Wild on reel 3. Additional Wilds are added to the reels guaranteeing a win of at least 2.25x the Bet and as much as 15x the Bet (for matching Wilds) along a single win way.
- 4 Types of Free Spins: The appearance of 3+ Scatters triggers a round of 10 Free Spins. 1 of 4 types of Free Spins with special Wild Features is randomly awarded. After this Feature has triggered 12 times, players get to choose which Free Spins mode they want to play: Flint with Flaming Wilds, Frost with Stacked Wilds, Gobble with Sticky Wilds or Switch with Stashed Wilds.
- Flint Free Spins: More and more Flaming Wilds are added to the reels each time flint breathes fire.
- Frost FS: Frosty Wilds freeze in place until they become part of a winning combo. The round ends once there are no more Frozen Wilds on the reels.
- Gobble FS: Winning Wilds stick to the reels until they substitute in a winning combo. Like Frost Free Spins, this round continues until no Winning Wilds remain.
- Switch FS: Stashed Wilds are non-winning Wilds that have been collected and stored by Switch. Once 3+ have been stashed away, Switch randomly redistributes them across the reels. This round doesn’t end until all the Stashed Wilds are redistributed.

Go Wild with Fire, Frost, Goo and Lightning
Dragonz has excellent graphics and animations making it a great choice for anyone that likes to feast on eye candy while spinning for cash! The clever use of various dragons and Wild Features in Free Spins nicely incorporates the overall theme into the core design. That said, we feel that this would be much more entertaining if it allowed players to choose which Free Spins type to play each time it triggered. Or, at least allow for a lower number of times it must first be triggered before player choice comes into play. For more animated dragon slots action, give NextGen Gaming’s A Dragon’s Story a look.
