Free Play 8 Dragons Slots - No Spam - No Pop-up Ads
Another Chinese-themed video slot is heading our way from Pragmatic Play’s creative kitchen, and it is called 8 Dragons. Do not expect to see 8 fire-breathing creatures on the reels, because there will only be 2 Dragons that form a number 8 and act as a 2-cell high Wild that doubles wins. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2017 release features a standard 5x3 reel grid and offers 20 fixed paylines. Apart from Wild Multipliers, the Pragmatic Play title also offers a rewarding Free Spins feature.
Even though the 8 Dragons video slot is not visually impressive, the graphics are crisp enough, while the soundtrack fits the theme perfectly. Excellent quality of the game allows the reels to run as smoothly as possible. Punters will recognize most of the symbols populating the reels, since they can be found in plenty other games with the similar topic. Apart from the abovementioned Dragon Wild, gamers will come across Tigers, Turtles and Koi Fish, as well as Golden Coins and Ingots. Playing cards represent low-paying symbols. The Red Letter represents the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
As for the rules of the game, they are pretty standard and you will understand how everything functions in no time at all. The 2017 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, beginning from the far-left reel, with three of a kind being the minimum. The Tiger is the only symbol that pays even for two of a kind. The control panel is pretty standard and offers all the usual options.
The good people of Pragmatic Play decided to stay true to their betting system, which includes the coin denomination and the number of coins gamers can place per payline. Gamers will be betting on 20 paylines, so the number of coins you can bet per spin ranges from 20 to 200, because up to 10 coins can be placed per line. The coin denomination is also pretty standard, going from £0.01 to £0.50. So, wager as low as £0.20 and as high as £100 per single spin. Such a betting range will satisfy the appetites of both penny punters and high rollers.
Set the bet to the max and you will pocket £2,500 once you land 5 Tigers on a payline. Fill all the cells with Tigers and win £50,000. If you are lucky enough and combine Lions with 15x win multipliers, which are offered in the Free Spins feature, you can walk away with whopping £750,000! On the other hand, such a high bet can drive you bankrupt if you don’t pay attention. 8 Dragons’ RTP is 96.37%.

Well, the Dragon Wild will be extremely helpful during the base game because every time it lands it can cover two cells and every time it is a part of the winning combination, it will double your wins. The Wild multipliers are also present in the Free Spins feature, and here they can boost the wins up to 15x.
Before you test your luck with multiplier Wilds in the Free Spins feature, you have to land three or more Letter Scatters o the reels. Once that happens, you have several options to choose from and several Dragons on the offer. The Red Dragon offers 5 freebies, but massive Wild multipliers, which can be 8x, 10x, and 15x. Select the Violet Dragon and you will get 8 free spins with 6x, 8x, or 10x random Wild multipliers. The Green Dragon offers 15 freebies, but smaller Wild multipliers, which can be 3x, 4x, or 6x. Finally, the Blue Dragon Will get you 20 freebies and 2x, 3x, 4x, random Wild multipliers. Also, you can pick the Mystery Dragon and get a mystery number of free spins and a mystery Wild multiplier, which can be good, but also very bad.
We can all agree that there are more than enough video slots with a similar topic and that 8 Dragons is nothing special. The 2017 release boasts good graphics and a fitting soundtrack, while the special features incorporated are far from unique, they can be found in other games and other Pragmatic Play titles. So, to be completely honest, we were far from impressed, but we are also positive that 8 Dragons have found their audience.
