Pragmatic Play – Dragon Hero – Free Slot Game

is known for churning out more Asian-themed slots than many other developers, and Dragon Hero features beautiful landscapes in the background. The symbols are a bit too generic for our taste, but that’s not uncommon with the oriental theme. The base game isn’t the most eventful we’ve tried, and you’ll get plenty of dead spins between everything that matters.

Everything revolves around the somewhat innovative Super Wild feature, and these are special wilds that distribute up to 3 wilds in random positions. What looks like the pink ghost of a dragon flies around regularly in the background, and you get fireworks in the bonus round. All Super Wilds are sticky during the feature and distribute Wilds during each free spin. This can earn you payouts of up to 5,000 times your bet, and fans of the Asian genre might enjoy what’s on offer here.

Bonus Features at Dragon Hero Slot

The premium symbols, consisting of coins, scrolls, urns, fish, frogs and a sycee, pay between 5 and 40 times your bet for 5 matches. Regular Yin & Yang Wild symbols can land anywhere to substitute for pay symbols and complete wins, and Wilds pay 60x your bet when 5 Wilds appear on the same payline.

You can land Super Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and they also substitute for payout symbols to help complete wins. The Super Wild contains between 1 and 3 regular Wilds as smaller symbols, which are distributed to random positions after the reels stop. However, more than one wild can be assigned to the same position.

You need 3, 4 or 5 scatters in view to trigger the bonus round, and that gives you 6, 8 or 10 bonus wheels. The bonus wheel spins to give you between 1 and 3 free spins each, which means you get between 6 and 30 free spins (depending on how many triggering scatters you landed).

All Super Wilds are fixed in the bonus round, and they distribute the number of Wilds they contain to random positions per free spin. Scatter symbols add half a Wild to a random Super Wild, and so you can boost the Super Wilds with more Wilds. Wilds can still be assigned to the same position, and there is no way to retrigger the bonus round. Players outside the UK can buy the feature for 100 times the bet, which guarantees 3+ scatters on the following spin.

In the base game, you’ll see dead spins for the most part, so you can confidently move on to the fun part. We buy the bonus round at 1:10 in the 2:36 minute highlights video, and the feature plays for the rest of the video. You can see for yourself how it all went by clicking the play button below.

Rating Conclusion

The oriental graphics are pleasing to the eye, but Dragon Hero still seems too generic and ordinary. In that sense, it’s a typical Pragmatic Play release, but at least the Super Wild feature is kind of original and fun. Having Wilds distribute more Wilds to random positions is an innovative touch, although it’s basically just a random Wilds feature. Still, it can be effective sometimes, but we have a lot of dead spins in the base game as well.

It didn’t seem boring for some reason, so the super wild thing is apparently enough to keep you entertained for a while. Pretty much anything can happen if you get enough sticky Super Wilds in the bonus round, at least equal to 5,000 times your bet. Asian-themed slot machines don’t usually do so well in Western markets, but maybe this one will be considered a home run on the other side of the world. It’s hard to tell sometimes, but overall it’s not a bad performance.
