Sponsored: Play ‘n Go are known for their skilled and entertaining fantasy-themed slots. They have several top games in this genre already under their belt. This month, though, they are adding one more to their arsenal.
Debuting at Play‘n Go casinos this month is their new Dragon Maiden slot. Like other fantasy-themed slots, this one has dragons, warriors and daggers, magical rings and a warfare theme. It also has a genial dragon maiden who goes by the name of Geneth, and she is central to this slot’s features.
Like Game of Thrones...but Not Really
Game of Thrones profoundly inspires the Dragon Maiden slot game, that much is obvious. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that the titular dragon maiden, Geneth, is Play ‘n Go’s take on Daenerys Targaryen. The slot even comes with dragons galore. However, that is where many of the similarities come to an end - save for a few scant references to The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. Wagers cost 10p a spin at their cheapest on this slot, which is rather incredible given that there are 243 paylines spread over the slot’s 5 reels. It is worth noting that ordinarily, such cheap slots tend to have rather small and poor non-progressive prizes. For the record, though, this slot has one which is capped at a non-progressive 5,000x your stake.
Golden Free Spins and Big Wins
Now, back to Geneth; she can turn herself into a wild symbol at random, and then expand to cover an entire reel. This will often result in decent wins being paid out. Geneth isn’t the only special symbol to star in Dragon Maiden, though. Landing just 2 scatters on the reels will offer a re-spin bonus which can see you players get another shot to land a missing third scatter, which trigger a free spin bonus.
In that free spin bonus (triggered with 3 scatters, just as in other play’n go slots), players will be rewarded with 12 free spins. Every time dragon scatters appear, the rows increase, and this alters the number of lines you have open to you. In all, you could unlock as many as 7,776 paylines in total. If a dragon appears stacked on a reel, you’ll be guaranteed to get a Golden Free Spin bonus, which offers one free spin with all 7,776 lines active at the conclusion of the free spin bonus.
