Splitting Wilds

As mentioned above, Dragonfire Chamber of Gold has Wild symbols that can appear at any point in the base game known as Splitting Wilds.

When 1 or more Splitting Wilds land on reels 2, 3 and 4, the Splitting Wild Respins will automatically trigger. Once active, all Splitting Wilds that triggered the feature will split into 2 Walking Wilds on adjacent reels.

Both walking wilds will then move one position to the left and right per Respin, moving further away from each other. There is no limit to how many Respins you get as long as there is a Splitting Wild or Walking Wild visible that did not reach the edge of the reel set.

Additional splitting wilds can land at any point during the Respin feature which will then split into more Walking Wilds. Each walking wild is given a Multiplier which will increase by +1 each time it takes a step, up to a maximum of x3.

When 2 walking wilds collide with one another, the reel they meet on will transform into an Expanded Wild reel for that respin.

Dragonfire Chamber of Gold: Hold & Win Respins

Landing 5 or more Egg symbols in any position on the reels triggers the Dragonfire Respins round, awarding 3 Respins.

Once active, the reel set will transform into a 5×5 grid with 3 Jackpot Prizes at the top and 2 steel gates on either side. During the Respins round, each time a new Egg symbol lands in view it will remain there and the Respins are reset back to 3.

Egg symbols will crack open and reveal a random Cash Value or 1 of 3 Jackpot Prizes which are as follows.

  • Mini – Awards 20x your current bet.
  • Major – Awards 100x your current bet.
  • Grand – Awards 500x your current bet.

Lift the Gates!

As mentioned before, there are 2 steel gates on either side of the grid which are a vital part of the Hold & Win Respins round. At the start of Respins, both gates are Closed.

During Respins, each new Egg symbol that lands will partially lift both gates. If the gates become partially open and no new Egg symbol lands in view, both gates will slam shut once again.

If at least 1 Egg symbol lands for 3 consecutive Respins, both gates will partially open once again and the Gates of Fire and Magic feature will trigger. The Gates of Fire and Magic feature will then award either Multipliers or the Collector.

The Collector

If the Collector feature is acitvated a magic Vortex will appear in the gate to the right.

The vortex will begin collecting all current Cash Values on the grid and add them to a Treasure Pile that sits behind the Right Gate, including any Jackpot Prizes that may be visible. The current value of the Treasure Pile will then be added to the Total Win for this round.

Dragonfire Multipliers

If the Dragonfire Multipliers feature is triggered, a Dragon will swoop in and set the grid on fire.

Once active, the Multiplier feature will spawn 3 random Multiplier Frames between 2x and 10x to the grid in random positions. Each awarded Multiplier Frame will increase by +1 and change positions at the start of every new Respin.

There is the possibility of 2 or 3 Multiplier Frames landing in the same position as eachother, in which case all Multiplier vlaues will be added together. Any Multiplier Frames that land in a position that is already occupied by an Egg symbol will mutliply its Cash Value and disappear and vice versa.

Another thing that Multiplier Frames can do is multiply Egg symbols that are already present on the grid, including all 3 Jackpot Prizes. Once this happens, the Multiplier Frame will disappear.

During this feature, it is not possible to trigger the Collector or any further Dragonfire Multipliers meaning that while this feature is active, Egg symbols will not lift the gates.

Dragonfire Chamber of Gold: Our Verdict

Dragonfire Chamber of Gold is the latest to contribute to iSoftBet’s long line of Hold & Win Games, yet they’re still finding ways to make them feel fairly fresh.

The mythical fantasy theme makes it interesting right from the off. The music is as suspenseful as you’d expect from a slot themed around dragons, and the graphics are equally as impressive. iSoftBet put quite a lot of resource it seems into making their slots appealing in more ways than just gameplay, but gameplay will obviously be the most important factor.

In this regard, we think iSoftBet has done well in creating a slot with ample excitement in both Base Game and Free Spins. Splitting and Expanding Wilds makes it enjoyable and potentially fruitful while you’re awaiting the bonus round, and when you do get to the bonus round you’ll transition through the gates into the depths of the dungeon where the real show begins.

iSoftBet has opted for simplicity in this particular instance with multipliers that simply but effectively increase your prizes, and at its maximum potential, Dragonfire Chamber of Gold is capable of a whopping 16,656x.

Overall, Dragonfire Chamber of Gold isn’t the most innovative of slots, but it’s a trusty option for Hold & Win fans everywhere with proven features and high potential.
