5 Dragons Slot Now Online
As I previously and somewhat grudgingly admitted, I got a bit confused when I saw Aristocrat had released their
land-based 5 Dragons slot online because never having come across it before, I assumed it was a
cut-down version of 50 Dragons. Clearly it isn't! It's actually a 243 ways slot game
("Reel Power" they call it) with a bonus feature reminiscent of Lucky 88 or Queen Of The Nile 2, two other
popular Aristocrat pokies from the famous Aussie slot developer.
The free spin feature in 5 Dragons is one of those that is triggered by getting the bonus symbols anywhere in view
on reels 1, 2 and 3 which isn't my favourite concept as I prefer the "scatters anywhere" approach. But that's similar to
both 50 Dragons and 50 Lions to be fair.
As in the aforementioned slots QOTN 2 and Lucky 88 (both of which are available online at bet365) you then get to pick how many spins you want with the possibility of 3 different multipliers
on each winning spin when a "wild" symbol is present in the winning combination. You can go "low risk" and opt for
25 free spins with a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier (random on each spin) or at the other end of the scale you could go for
just 10 free spins with 10x, 15x or 30x multipliers.
What this is effectively doing is allowing the player to set the risk level (referred to as "volatility" or "variance") that
they are most comfortable with. Obviously the fewer free spins you select, the lower your chances of a win but if you hit, it's
likely to be much bigger. That's better if you have a decent bankroll but if not then at that level, 5 Dragons could eat your
money faster than you can say "Arthur! Just kill the b*st*rd!".
Look I'll be honest, the 5 Dragons slot isn't my favourite but it's horses for courses. Some players like the all-ways
win combos and the chances of some huge hits in the feature so lining up scatters left-to-right isn't much of an issue.
Personally I prefer games like 50 Lions and 50 Dragons to 5 Dragons because of the stacked symbols but that's my preference.
