Dragon Match Megaways Slot Review
Dragon Match Megaways is an online slot machine from iSoftBet. Slots with Megaways are an indispensable part of online casinos. After Aztec Gold Megaways and Majestic Megaways, Dragon Match Megaways is already the third Megaways slot from iSoftBet. iSoftBet seems to have a taste for it. And all with official licenses from Big Time Gaming, the creator of the Megaways mechanism. Having a taste for it also means that you let go of your own creativity on the Megaways mechanism. Just like before Stakelogic on the Black Gold Megaways slot machine. Dragon Match Megaways has two “top reels”. That looks a bit like a table of two in a restaurant. Are you turning two of the same symbols? Then you get two Wild Reels. Two Dragon Match symbols yield the free spins. These free spins are played with an unlimited win multiplier and the possibility to unlock additional free spins!
How to play at Match Megaways Slot?
You determine the bet by setting the “coin value”. You set this at a minimum of 0.01 and a maximum of 1.00 each. Grind 20 coins per spin makes a bet range from 0.20 to 20.00. Dragon Match Megaways naturally has the “Cascading Wins” mechanism. This mechanism broke through on the Gonzo Quest slot from NetEnt, but it is also indispensable from Megaways slot machines. Are you turning a winning combination? Then the winning symbols disappear from your screen. The symbols above it fall down. And new symbols will appear in the empty spaces. “Cascading Wins” continues until it pays off.
Each spin determines the random number generator how many symbols each reel counts. That gives you a maximum of 3,125 ways to win. This makes Dragon Match Megaways a bit stingy compared to colleagues like Valletta Megaways and Bonanza Megaways. That’s because Dragon Match Megaways only has four reels instead of six reels. A novelty is the Dragon Match. When the two symbols on the “top reel” “match” each other, the reels below are transformed into Wild Reels. This of course increases the chances of winning and the number of winning combinations.
Symbols and Payouts
The golden dragon is wild for all other symbols except the Dragon Match symbols. We will return to those Dragon Match symbols later in this Dragon Match Megaways slot machine review. First the “regular” symbols. Of these (even though) a golden dragon is the best paying one. Three of these dragons will earn you 40 credits, while four of these dragons will earn you 400 credits. That seems little, but with a maximum of 3,125 ways to win it can go fast. A symbol twice on two reels, once on one reel and three times on one reel already counts as 12 winning combinations. Twelve combinations with this dragon will earn you 4,800 credits, maximum 4,800.00. Lucky cards with lucky coins are good for a maximum of 100 credits, lotus flowers for a maximum of 80 credits. And so the value of the combinations decreases towards 2 credits for a combination of three nines.
Especially with two Wild Reels it can go fast. If you have a symbol twice on the first reel, have two Wild Reels and once on the fourth reel, at best that counts as 128 winning combinations.
You can also unlock the Free Spins via the two top reels. Two Dragon Match symbols – golden dragons – on the two top reels means you have the free spins bonus.
You can choose how many free spins and with which multiplier you start:
- 12 free spins with a multiplier starting at x1;
- 8 free spins, starting with a multiplier of x3;
- 5 free spins with a multiplier starting at x5.
And if you can’t choose yourself, you can have the random number generator chosen. You then get one of the three variants. It doesn’t matter which variant you choose for the payout percentage. Every time you spin two Dragon Match symbols on the top reels, you get extra spins. Five pieces. There is no maximum number of free spins to play, so in theory you can continue playing indefinitely. The multiplier is also infinite. Each time you win, the multiplier increases by +1.
What do we think of Dragon Match Megaways slot machine?
Majestic Megaways and Aztec Gold Megaways were few daring releases. In Dragon Match Megaways, iSoftBet is trying something new. Two “top reels” and in exchange for two of the same symbols on the “top reels” you get two Wild Reels. A great feature. Furthermore, Megaways are of course Megaways and therefore fun. In the bonus game you play with a multiplier and it can skyrocket unlimited. In short: an excellent gameplay, an original extra feature and of course an excellent profit potential.
