Symbols and Paylines in Dragon Island
The game symbols in Dragon Island pay both left to right, and right to left in consecutive order when the Win Both Ways is activated, except for the Volcano scatter symbols, which pay anywhere.
Players are able to choose to play from 1 up to 15 paylines, but a payline has to be activated in order for a win to be paid out. The theoretical return to the player for this game is 96.6%, which is relatively high.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The Dragon Statue is the Wild symbol in Dragon Island and substitutes for all other symbols except for the Golden Dragon wild symbol, and the Volcano scatter symbols.
The Golden Dragon wild symbol appears on reel 3, and does not substitute for the Volcano scatter symbols. The Golden Dragon wild symbol does, however, substitute for other symbols and any winnings achieved are multiplied from x2 to x8 when completing the payline using this symbol.
The Volcano symbol in the Dragon Island slot machine game is a Scatter symbol. This means that the Volcano scatter symbol does not need to appear in a line on an enabled payline to win, and thus any two scatter symbols constitutes a winning combination. Three or more Volcano scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the five reels triggers the Free Spin Bonus Round game.
Bonus Games and Features
The Dragon Island Free Spin Bonus game comes into effect when 3, 4 or 5 scattered Volcano symbols appear anywhere on the five reels. Ten free spins with a bet multiplier of 3x are awarded for three symbols, 20 free spins with a bet multiplier of 10x for four, and the maximum of 50 Free Spins with a bet multiplier of 100x are the reward for landing five Volcano symbols. Once the Free Spin Bonus Round is activated, an expanded Dragon Wild symbol appears on a random reel before each free spin, thereby increasing the likelihood of a winning pay out substantially. During this Bonus game additional free spins can be retriggered at any time.
The Net Entertainment casino software gaming package that is included on Dragon Island video slots includes the Skill Stop Feature. This feature allows players to stop the spinning reels when they want to with the use of the spin button. The Autoplay game option is also available on this slot machine and enables expert players to speed gameplay up substantially.
