The Dragon Maiden is the most valuable symbol and pays out x12.5 of the players stake for landing 5 across a single pay line as well as being able to morph into a wild and can substitute for all other symbols apart from the Dragon scatter to create winning combinations. Players that land two or more of the Dragon scatter activate the Re-Spin feature and during this spin the scatters are held in place, if they land another scatter the same applies and the re-spins keep going until there are no scatters landed. Three or more Dragon scatters starts the Free Spins feature with 3, 4 or 5 scatters rewarding 8, 10 or 12 free spins. Most importantly is the Dragon scatters have more power during this feature and each time one lands the reel height increases by one symbol to a maximum of six symbols in height.
This gives players chance for more ways to win up to the colossal 7,776 ways and every time their symbols reach the maximum height, they are rewarded with a golden free spin which takes place after the free spins feature and is played out on the 5th reel with a 6 symbol high reel set providing bigger wins. The visuals that Play ‘N’ Go have created for Dragon Maiden are truly stunning and although the bonus features are really simple, they are equally rewarding. Those who are familiar with slots from Play ‘N’ Go will appreciate whilst this is a highly volatile slot there is an enormous x5,000 times the total bet staked on each free and or golden free spin. There is no doubt that the game looks good with well crafted symbols and a dark background. Whilst the slot lacks any bonus game this is certainly softened by everything else that goes on within the free spins.
Personally, I really enjoyed playing Dragon Maiden it is well balanced and offers numerous chances for landing some fair sized wins. For the first time in ages Play ‘N’ Go are offering more than their standard 4% edge which really makes the slot good value for money. All in all, this is a really solid offering and seeing as the developers have broken their usual house edge, this could be a significant sign for the future. This is definitely an absorbing and exciting slot and considering the feature volatility the features are trigger consistently throughout. In the same way as many slots of this style the features may reward players little and often, but it will certainly entertain, and lucky players may even land the big pay outs. The theme is beautifully executed with a Game of Thrones style and appeal and I would highly recommend playing it.
