Dragon Island is a 5-reel, 15-payline slot produced by NetEnt in 2012, and it was the first from them to include the “Win Both Ways” option, which gives players the chance to win on symbol combinations from both left to right and right to left.
With this feature on, the bet amount doubles but so do potential winnings. The theme of the slot is based on the supernatural world of dragons and comprises elements of dragon legends including rocky cliffs covered in a fine blue mist, with a waterfall flowing behind the control panel, stones entangled with vines and greenery and of course, a team of five exquisitely detailed dragons which will appear on the reels.
The soundtrack features a deceivingly relaxing collection of nature sounds, but more energising bursts of music accompany the appearance of winning paylines. With a lowest bet of $/€/£0.01 per spin and a highest of $/€/£150 per spin, this slot should appeal to players of all levels but will surely attract low-rollers.
The highlight of the game must be the free spin round, which can be retriggered for more wins. This is where the top fixed jackpot can be won, a profitable investment for real money online players.
The Wild is represented by a Dragon Statue, and will replace regular game icons to help complete winning combinations, with the exception of the scatter and golden wild symbols. Then we have the Golden Wild icon, which will only appear on the middle reel of the game when Win Both Ways is activated.
This Wild acts as a multiplier, granting from 2x up to 8x the amount collected. The scatter is represented by an active Volcano. This icon will award payouts when at least 2 of them appear anywhere on the reels, whereas 3 or more will activate the free spin round of the game.
Given the possibility to have winning combinations from both sides of the screen, there potential winnings in this game are quite remarkable. The top payout during the base game amounts to 2,500 coins and will be awarded when 5 yellow dragon icons appear on a payline.
This can reach 5,000 when Win Both Ways is activated. The highest overall payouts will come from the free spin round, a colossal 400,000 coins with the Win Both Ways feature on.
The only bonus feature of this game is the free spin round. When 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols appear on the reels, players will be awarded 10, 20 or 50 free spins respectively as well associated scatter payouts.
The free spins are all paid out at the base game rates and there are no additional multipliers available. However, by landing additional scatter symbols, more instant wins can be collected and the bonus can be retriggered.
