When most people think of dragons, images of ferocious fire-breathing beasts usually come to mind. However, this simply isn’t the case in Mini Dragons, a five-reel, 20-payline title from Ash Gaming that features a cute and cuddly line-up of hatchlings on its reels.
Supporting Ash Gaming’s patented Exploding Reels, the pint-sized dragons that feature as regular base game symbols are nevertheless capable of providing gigantic wins, as any winning paylines will be removed from the gameboard as new icons tumble down from above to create chain wins.
As the name would suggest, Mini Dragons features a magical theme that sees four different coloured baby dragons feature on its reels alongside crowns and treasure chests. With the reels set in front of a castle in the clouds, the game really does look like something out a children’s fairytale and includes a selection of equally cute sound effects when winning paylines are created. The Exploding Reels feature will see any winning combinations disappear in a flash of fire and a puff of smoke as new icons are added to the reels, with this in turn providing the possibility for further base game wins.
What’s better than a game that features Exploding Reels on every winning spin? Why, a title that lets you trigger this bonus even when you don’t match three symbols on a payline, of course! If a golden egg features anywhere on the reels during a non-winning spin, it will hatch to reveal a golden dragon that will then burn away a random selection of symbols to set the reels tumbling. Unlike on normal spins, however, this time at least one winning payline is guaranteed, with this set of symbols then exploding as normal to potentially start a longer sequence.
In terms of gameplay, Mini Dragons is a relatively simple title to get to grips with. The game features clearly marked plus and minus buttons that help players control both the number of active paylines between 1 and 20 and their bet per line amount from £0.01 to £10.00. When combined, these two variables make the game playable from £0.01 to £200.00 per spin, with a turbo mode button able to provide faster gameplay and a pop-up autoplay menu letting players launch 50 spins in one click.
A cute and cuddly it video slot it may be, but Mini Dragons is still capable of providing some ferocious payouts thanks to its Exploding Reels feature. The inclusion of a golden egg symbol that can set off the Exploding Reels even on a non-winning spin is a nice addition that guarantees prizes, with a top base game award meaning the slot is still capable of providing plenty of fire-power.
