Journey to a fantasy kingdom in Dragon Island, a five-reel, 15-payline slot from NetEnt that allows players to enhance their experience by adding in two-way pays and special golden wilds. With these two features doubling players’ total bet amount each spin, you might think it’s a steep price to pay; but what you get in return more than makes up for it. While enabled, not only will all wins pay from left-to-right and right-to-left, but special golden dragon wilds can also appear on the reels to multiply any winning paylines that they feature in by up to 8x the value of the regular prize.
Dragon Island features a fantasy theme with winged beasts that represent the various elements appearing on its reels. All told, players will find dragon symbols representing fire, stone, wood, water and wind on the gameboard during regular play, with golden dragon symbols also added when two-way pays are enabled. The reels themselves are set in front of a misty island backdrop, with distant mountains and a flowing waterfall adding to the splendour of this fantastical setting. A selection of background ambience also plays throughout to enhance the experience, while all winning paylines are greeted with a short animation to create a slot that’s easy on both the eyes and ears alike.
As mentioned above, the main selling point of Dragon Island is the fact that players are able to place an additional wager to activate two-way pays and the golden dragon symbol. If, however, that’s not for you or you’re conscious of your budget, even without this feature enabled you could still land up to 50 free spins. With free spins activated whenever three or more volcano symbols appear, players will be awarded 10, 20 or 50 bonus games for three, four or five symbols respectively, with each free spin benefiting from an expanded wild that appears on a random reel before each game.
Again adhering to the standard NetEnt user interface, Dragon Island features a selection of adjustable buttons that can be used to control the total number of active paylines plus players’ bet level and their coin value. With 1-15 paylines available plus bet levels of 1-10 and coin values of £0.01-£0.50, the game is initially playable for between £0.01 and £75.00 per spin, but activating the two-way pays feature will double your current wager in exchange for the benefits mentioned above.
An interesting video slot experience that offers players a wide range of betting options, Dragon Island is one of the more flexible NetEnt titles in terms of how much players can choose to invest. Whatever their chosen stakes, however, the prospect of landing up to 50 free spins with an expanding wild symbol added to the reels means the slot is always capable of huge payouts.
