Dragon Sword Slots

Dragon-SwordDragon Sword is your typical “hero meets dragon” story, with the fire breathing monster being confronted by a knight in medieval armor and using a sword that reminds me of Excalibur. It looks like they’ve borrowed quite a bit from popular stories and legends with this one, and if you’re one of the many people that enjoy knights and fire breathing dragons, Dragon Sword should be a good way to spend a few hours.

There are 5 reels in Dragon Sword, plus a total of 25 active lines. Cryptologic is the designer behind it, and they’re the kind that will fill a game with great features, which in this case means adding pretty much every popular feature they could think of. Though you don’t find anything out of the ordinary among them, you get to take advantage of free games rounds, multipliers, bonus games, scatters and wild symbols. Even the prize is pretty good, capable of putting up to $120,000 in your pocket, depending on just how much you’re risking yourself.

Features of Dragon Sword

If you want a game that is exciting and fun, you should be looking for titles like Dragon Sword, where you find all the modern features in one place. There are other titles with more advanced features, but they don’t always put so many different things in one game.

The Knight, an Anime style drawn character that is dressed in metal armor, will be offered on all the reels of the game and no matter where it appears, you can count on it helping out when it comes to forming combinations, if it can do anything about that. As a wild, the Knight is capable of substituting for other icons, but there are certain rules in place and it can only help the ones that are already positioned on the same payline. It can’t replace a scattered Sword, but other than that it can work with all the symbols. On its own, you will discover that the Knight can also form complete combinations that use only identical wilds in them, but in this case they have to appear starting from the left. Its payouts can reach up to 6,000 coins, the slot’s top jackpot.

The Sword scattered symbol is the kind of feature you can count on to give you some very nice prizes, and all you need is for these icons to appear multiple times during the same round. Get two to five Swords, in any random position, and your reward will be a 1x to 100x multiplier applied to the triggering bet.

Dragon Sword Feature

Sword scatters don’t stop at just awarding prizes though. The same symbols, when at least three of them are available, will get you into the Dragon Sword feature.

The story says that the Knight’s sword was hidden by the dragon, in a treasure chest. You are presented with 5 treasure chests, and you have 3 picks to make, trying to locate the sword. Each Sword you locate gets you a random prize, but if you get the Golden Sword you triple all the prizes of the bonus game.


Free Games Feature

Luckily, the scatter isn’t the only one that can get a bonus game triggered. The wild is the one that gets you free spins, as long as you have the Knight appear on both the 1st and 5th reels, during the same spin. Your reward will be 15 free games and a 2x multiplier. You can retrigger the free spins feature, the requirement being the same two wilds on the first and the last reel.

Betting options and jackpots

Dragon Sword tends to be an expensive game, which is how they manage to get the prize so high. With coin denominations of $20 at their highest, plus up to 25 active lines, the biggest wager available to you is worth $500. If that sounds like too much, don’t worry, the game is accessible to everyone, with denominations of $0.01 being possible.

Obviously, the kind of money you spend in your bets is going to influence the value of the prizes. The best one available, the top jackpot, is worth 6,000 coins ($60 to $120,000, for $0.01 to $20 denominations).

Design and symbols

A certain anime style is recognizable when you look at the main character, and in part at the fierce dragon as well. Either way, it’s drawn in a cartoon style that looks quite attractive, but the high number of playing cards takes away some of the pleasure, especially when you get more than half the screen occupied by them. Both the background image and the stone support behind the reels are made well enough to contribute to the theme.

Symbols: Knight (wild, 6,000x), Sword (scatter, 100x triggering wager), Dragon (1,000x), Castle Entrance (400x), Treasure Chest (200x), Torch (200x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (125x), Jack (125x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Considering the theme, the wealth of features and the biggest prize available, I’d say yes, Dragon Sword deserves a chance. It’s especially fun if you usually enjoy the stories of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, or Medieval themed entertainment.

You will find Dragon Sword at any online casino which chooses to use software from Cryptologic, playable either for free or for real money.
