Pragmatic Play are back with a new and exciting adventure, Drago Jewels of Fortune Slot.
This Spryo looking dragon promises something a little different to what we’ve seen from Pragmatic Play in the past, so we’re excited to venture into the lair of the Drogo in pursuit of treasure of the magical variety.
Some Pragmatic games have been less than exhilarating, at least compared to other providers, so we’re hoping this new concept will shine a spotlight on the innovative aptitude we know that Pragmatic Play are capable of.
Drago Jewels of Fortune presents the player with a bold and enticing theme.
The background is laden with treasure belonging to the mystical dragon Drogo, and to the right of the screen the beast himself sits prominently in all his majesty.
The soundtrack for the game is dramatic, almost akin to battle music, with sound effects of the roar of the dragon every now and again.
So far, the theme really draws you in, no expenses spared here in designing the graphics and soundtrack for this game.
The reel is designed with 5-4-4-4-5 layout, and works using a ‘ways to win’ mechanic, of which there are 1600.
When you’re playing with ways to win, then symbols need only match from left to right consecutively, regardless of their position on the reel.
The Pay table consists of 9 symbols, with Drogo taking his rightful place as top paying symbol.
Other premium symbols include 3 other Dragons, and low symbols are A, K, Q, J & 10. Wild symbols also exist, and substitute for all symbols except for the Bonus Scatter. Wild symbols only appear on reels 2, 3 & 4.
Stake options are extensive, catering for those entering the lair for a few coins, and those going in to take it all.
Using bet level and coin value, you can customize the stake with a minimum option of 0.20 and a maximum of 100.
Drago Jewels of Fortune has an RTP of 96.50%, and is a high volatility slot.
You should theoretically see a decent proportion of your bets back as winnings, and with high volatility you can expect bigger wins on a less frequent basis than games with lower variance.
Landing some top symbols in the base game on consecutive lines can land you some nice wins, but the game really shines when you unlock its Re-spin and Bonus rounds.
Players outside of the UK can benefit from a Bonus Buy feature as a quick route into the bonus. This is available for 100x your stake, where RTP is the same at 96.50%.
Hit 4 matching symbols in all 4 corners of the screen to trigger the Dragon Super Spin Feature.
During this feature, the reels will spin and the goal is to fill the spaces with more Dragons of the same type, and every one that lands will remain on the screen until the end of the round.
Wins are awarded at the end of the round based on the total number of the symbols on the screen.
The paytable is shown on the screen during the Dragon Super Spin round, and the total win is calculated as a multiplier of the current bet.
An upgrade symbol can land during the round, which will double all pays on the paytable. The round will end when no more new Dragon symbols hit.
Any of the premium Dragon symbols can trigger the Super Spin, and landing Drogo will be the most rewarding. Landing 20-22 Drogo symbols will pay a massive 5000x, or 10000x if an upgrade symbol landed.
Dragon Super Spin is a really interesting and adrenaline filled feature, and something that really shows the quality and thought put into this game.
The bonus symbol is represented by a framed Crystal symbol. It will only appear on reels 1 and 5, and like the Dragon Super Spin, you’ll need them to land on all 4 corners to activate.
Before the round starts, a re-spin feature will occur, and you’ll need to land crystal symbols, this will determine the set up you’ll have going into the bonus round.
You’ll start with 3 re-spins. Every time a crystal lands, the spins will reset back to 3, and the crystal symbols you can land serve the following functions within the bonus.
The Free Spins round on Drago Jewels of Fortune is incredibly versatile. Different set ups can manifest in a completely different experience and subsequently, different wins.
It’s a lot of fun, and very exciting when you get that solid set up going into the Free Spins.
There’s so much to love about Drago Jewels of Fortune. The graphics and design are spot on, and the in-game features such as Dragon Super Spin and the Free Spins round is as exciting as they come…if you get that good set up.
It’s got that high volatility action that so many players love, with absolutely massive upside potential with a staggering maximum win of 48,000x. Those who enjoy mythical fantasy games will love it.
Despite all the praise, landing the features can be a little bit of a grind at time. But of course, this will vary from player to player, and on the day Drogo can either give it up easily, or not without a fight.
Overall, this game was thoroughly enjoyable, and ticks most of the boxes that gives a game good longevity and enjoyability.
