The newest release by Betsoft, Dragon Kings Slots, offers players an expanded and unique grouping of bonus features that make this game an instant joy to play. The 5-reel slot may only have 10 paylines, which is a low number for a Betsoft title of his type, but offers a slew of bonus features that will keep slot spinners returning again and again for another shot at the bonus play and the potentially big payouts that this game is capable of. The most intriguing feature of Dragon Kings is the ability to purchase the free spins round with a higher cost per spin.
At first glance, Dragon King looks like many of the Chinese inspired slot titles that have been released at a furious rate this last year at online casinos, but players would be foolish to skip over this title because of the theme. Betsoft is well-known for taking tired, old and overused themes and breathing new life into them by using their ability to create amazing high definition graphics and offer some of the most innovative bonus features to keep players coming back again and again for more. For the basic symbols, bettors will find a golden good luck icon, a carved jade figure, a swimming loi fish and symbols of ace, king, queen and jack. The symbols that drive this game are the dragon pearl that initiates the free spins round and helps trigger the Dragon King and the four other Chinese Dragons that are not only wild but also have a ability unique to that dragon.
This title offers the general coin sizes of $0.01 and up to and including a $1; with only 10 paylines , this could seem like an underwhelming option for some players. Those in the know will want to use the option of purchasing a batch of 30 free spins for the cost of one spin and the price shown in the bottom right corner of the game board. While the price of this feature is more than a normal single spin wager, the free spins are where all the big money action happens in this slot and bettors will quickly learn that this is a much better option. Those wagering a normal $0.01 per payline bet of all 10 paylines will pay $4.50 for the 30 free spins; this appears to be a bad choice but in actuality allows a player to pay a small amount extra to have a chance at the lucrative bonus features that are only available during the free spins round.
The free spins round is where the meat of this slot and the biggest potential for a massive win resides; each of the five reels are the realm of a certain colored dragon that is a wild and when multiple dragons appear on the reels the real fun begins. The Azure Dragon is on Reel I and awards a free spin with all dragons on the reels frozen in place and can be retriggered twice. The Black Dragon that resides on Reel II give a 3X multiplier to all wins that it creates, while the Dragon King in Reel II is an expanding symbol that fill the entire reel. Reel IV is where the White Dragon is found and will replicate to the left and the right if an Azure Dragon lands on the first reel in the same spin. The Red Dragon makes his home in Reel V and can award a random cash prize of 4X to 400X the line bet. The single slot in what could be considered the sixth reel is where the special Dragon Pearl can appear; this pearl can double the number of free spins won in a normal spin of the reels and is necessary, along with the Dragon King in the third reel to trigger one of the games four jackpots. The jackpots are named Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond and the jackpot won is based on how many of the different dragons are on the reels.
Betsoft is becoming well-known for the extensive bonus features in some of their titles and this may be the largest undertaking the developer has taken on and has successfully given slot players a title for the ages. Dragon King could go down at the developers greatest game but that title for a Betsoft game is only temporary, as the developer will now start work on a title that will surpass it some time in the future. That is the way Betsoft works and it is what has made the developer the king of the online slot world.
