Dragon’s Fire Megaways

It’s one of the first rules of film that sequels are never as good as the original. But that’s not a rule that applies to online slots, and though Dragon’s Fire- released back in August 2018- was already a high-class game, this sequel released in September 2019 and available at Mr Green Casino has topped it.

It’s not often you come across a slot that ticks the boxes of being attractive to look at, original in terms of gameplay and boasting plenty of different bonus features.

How to play Dragon’s Fire Megaways

It may take you a few minutes of playing Dragon’s Fire Megaways just to get to grips with everything that’s going on, such is the complexity of the features and storylines happening in front of your eyes. But good things come to those who wait and once you’ve figured it all out, you will understand what a top-quality slot we’ve got here.

It’s a Red Tiger Gaming, release but so impressed were they with Big Time Gaming’s Megaways slots, that they requested a license to use the same mechanics for Dragon’s Fire Megaways.

To play, first click on the ‘Stake’ button on the left and scroll up and down until you get the one you want: minimum bet €0.10, maximum bet €80.0.

You can choose to spin on automatic pilot by clicking on ‘Auto’ and choosing to play a pre-established number of spins, while also determining special circumstances where they come to an end prematurely. Such as when you win/lose a certain amount, or when a Bonus feature is activated.

It’s bottom right to play at Turbo speed and top right to adjust the sound, play in full-screen mode, check the pay table or find out how the bonus features work.

It’s a 6-reel slot with 117,649 different ways to win. As the symbols start to emerge during a spin, it will adjust how many ‘Megaways’ of winning are possible based on the symbols on the reels. The more the better, obviously.

Key features of Dragon’s Fire Megaways

The clue to what sort of symbols you might find on the reels is in the name of the game.

So, there’s a one-off Dragon Eye (the most valuable symbol), plus Dragons and Dragon Eggs in the following colours: Golden, Red, Green and Purple.

Keep an eye on the Red Dragon Egg to the right of the reels. When you secure your first base game win, it will display the 2x multiplier and if you get a win on your next spin, that multiplier will be applied to it. Your next spin will then be with a 3x multiplier in place and it will keep going up as you carry on getting more winning spins.

What that means is that even if you’re only securing very modest wins, somewhere down the line a 7x or 8x multiplier will mean they’re always worth something substantial. The maximum multiplier available is 50x.

Plenty of slots have the Gamble feature, allowing you to double up on any win. But not like this one. You can choose what proportion of a wheel you want to be a green (winning) area and what proportion you wish to be a red (losing) area. The bigger the red area, the more you can increase your initial win by.

Spin to see which one the hand stops on and keep going, adjusting the areas as you wish ahead of each gamble. But remember that with one wrong move you can lose all your winnings.

Dragon’s Fire Megaways symbols

If you hadn’t noticed by now, this is a slot quite unlike many others. And keeping in line with that, it’s decided that yes, there’s a Wild symbol, but no, it’s not a permanent fixture in the game.

Rather, occasionally the Fire Blast may come into play. That means that the mean-looking Dragon hovering above the Red Egg, can blast up to 3 reels. That leaves as many as 4 Wild symbols on each of the 3 ignited reels, resulting in some big wins. If only two are ignited, it can also reveal Scatter Symbols, which we’ll come to next.

Bonus features in Dragon’s Fire Megaways

In a way the Megaways (of winning), Dragon Egg Multiplier and Fire Blast are features in their own right, but the following are the ones we consider to be proper bonus features.

Dragon’s Eye Boost

The Dragon Eye can open up and boost the current Multiplier by up to 10x. Secure yourself a winning spin next time and you’re in business.

Free Spins

Free Spins are activated thanks to a particular symbol. You’ll know which one it is because the symbol actually says ‘Free Spins’ on it. It’s the equivalent of the Scatter on other slots.

They’re quite an elusive symbol. But you do get the chance to cash in when you get three of them anywhere on the reels.

You’ll start by having to choose from one of three eggs to see how many free spins you get, normally between 10 and 20. The key here is that the multiplier isn’t reset when you don’t get a winning spin.

So, it just goes up and up and up and you could easily have a multiplier on 10x by the time the spins come to an end. Better still, the multiplier stays at the level it’s at when the round comes to an end so you could still live off it for a few more regular spins in the base game.

An alternative way of activating the round is via the Dragon’s Kindness. When you have two Scatters on the reels, the Dragon can take pity on you, breathe fire into the reels and give you the third one you’re missing, to award you the free spins round.

Conclusion

Make no mistake. There may be a lot of fire-blowing going on here, but the truth is this slot is a real breath of fresh air and an excellent addition to the Mr Green portfolio of slots.

The random features keep you engaged enough, the permanent presence of the ever-increasing multiplier is most welcome, and it all looks great.

But it’s the free spins that really set this game apart. A bit like in Jack and the Beanstalk, when you get on a roll, you can just sit back and with some luck watch the numbers go up, with each multiplier making the potential wins bigger and bigger. The icing on the cake of a superb slot.
