Theme and graphics
Every slot from Microgaming is a true masterpiece in the casino gaming industry. The House of dragons takes you to the lands of ancient China. You might think that it involves dragons kidnapping princesses, sleeping on piles of gold and fighting off intrepid medieval knights. In fact, this colorful video slot is all about Chinese culture, where dragons have an important place. So it’s not gloomy castles and dank caves you’ll find, but pagodas, hole-in-the-wall coins, paper lanterns and fans. And there’s no shortage of dragons, either. The drums are decorated with red columns and drawings of dragons, but there’s no backdrop. Underneath, under the drums, there are all the necessary control buttons. The game has great graphics, but it loads almost instantly and does not lag at all. House of Dragons is mobile compatible and can be played on any device that supports HMTL5. There’s no additional software to install, all you need is a browser. If you’re looking for an exciting China-themed game, check out this slot. It has medium variance and will suit beginners and experienced players alike.
Gameplay and Paylines
The high-paying symbols you’ll encounter in House of Dragons include a coin, a lantern, a dragon and a fan. The winnings you can get for these icons range from 10 to 300 coins. The low paying symbols in this game are the classic A, K, Q, J and 10. Depending on the number of icons in a line, combinations of these will bring you between 2 and 150 coins. Before you start the game you will have to decide your stake. Using the buttons at the bottom of the screen, you can change the number of coins on each line and the coin value. The first can be from 1 to 10 and the second from 0.01 to 0.50.
In House of Dragons there are 20 winning lines, giving you plenty of opportunities to make winning combinations on each spin. You have to catch at least 3 symbols in one of the lines to get your payout.
Pay attention to the Wild dragon, which is the best symbol in this game. A line of five of these icons will bring you a jackpot of 10,000 coins – twice as much as a line of five Wild Emperors.
The House of Dragons slot screen features symbols representing the essential attributes of Chinese culture: coins with square holes, round red paper lanterns, and so on. In addition, there are denominations of playing cards from ten to ace.
House of Dragons has four special characters: two Wild (a golden dragon and a grey-haired Chinese), Scatter (a beautiful fan) and Bonus (a shooting archer).
• Wild in the form of the dragon forms the most valuable combinations according to the general rules. But it can also replace other pictures (apart from the special ones) if it is in the right place. In such cases, payouts on these lines are doubled.
• Chinese Wild also acts as a regular symbol and also substitutes for other symbols except Wild, Scatter and Bonus. However, it does not double the odds.
• Scatter is paid regardless of position, and the winnings on such combinations are calculated on the total bet per spin. At the same time, they give an opportunity to get an increased payout (see slot rules for details).
• Bonus gives the right to participate in a bonus round. To do so, three of these symbols must appear on an active line, located near the first reel.
In the bonus game, which opens on the additional House of Dragons slot screen, you will have to shoot an arrow at targets. It consists of several stages. If you successfully complete one of these, you can collect your winnings or put them on the line in the next round.
