Dragons Myth Online Slot by Microgaming Review
Dragons Myth was designed by Microgaming. The slot features five reels and 20 paylines. Winning combinations may be formed with ten regular symbols. The maximum payout for a winning combo is х1,000.
This is also the amount that you can earn for five Wild symbols. The Wild can also replace any regular picture. A series of free spins is triggered once three or more special symbols land on the reels. The number of free spins can be increased and fixed Wilds can be added to the reels.
How to run the gameplay
Once you launch the Dragons Myth slot, you will initially be given 2,000 credits. The amount of credits will be displayed in the lower left corner all throughout the game. The value of your bet per spin will be displayed above the Balance section. It consists of your bet per line and the number of paylines.
The number of active paylines cannot be changed and will always be 20. You can set your line bet by using the Bet switch. This is where you can use the left and right arrows to set one of the values from the range between 0.01 and 2. This way, your minimum bet per spin will be 0.2 credits, while the maximum will be 40.
To set the highest bet with one click, hit the Max Bet button.
The spins in Dragons Myth are launched by clicking on the big button with a round arrow. The button with the letter A opens the window where you can set a series of autospins. This is where you can set the number of autospins from 3 to 25. Tick off "Fast Gameplay" to speed up the autospins.
Once all of your values have been set, hit the Start button to launch a series of spins. By using the Stop button you will stop the spins in one click.
Your reward for a successful spin will be displayed in the Win section. There are several prerequisites that will determine whether a combination is winning or not. First, the symbols in a combo must land on one active payline. Second, the pictures must land on neighbouring reels. Third, the combo becomes a winning one only when it starts at the leftmost reel.
This condition will change during the free spins mode. Winning combinations during free spins can start on the rightmost reel as well.

Symbols and multipliers in Dragons Myth
Click on the Info button to access the info section. This section contains the descriptions of the symbols and their characteristics, the bonuses and the paylines. The slot features a total of eleven pictures. Three of them are special ones. The Wild symbol depicting a girl assumes the function of missing pictures in a winning combo. This will lead to the creation of more winning combos.
The Wild symbols can also earn you a reward in credits once five of them have landed on an active payline. The reward for this combo will be 1,000 bets per line.
A symbol with the word "Freespins" will launch a series of free spins. Three of these symbols landing on the reels will get you 10 free spins. Four Scatters will trigger 15 free spins. Five of them will trigger 20.
The number of free spins can be increased if you land the Bonus symbol during the free spins. This symbol will also let you pick the field for the fixed Wild symbol.
Standard combinations are produced by regular symbols. Each symbols has its own multipliers. With the appropriate winning combo these factors will be multiplied by your line bet.
The slot features a total of eight regular pictures. Half of them are the card symbols from Jack to Ace. Symbols and their combinations:
- Jack — х2, х3, х4 and х10
- Queen — х3, х4, х5 and х12
- King — х5, х10 and х25
- Ace — х6, х15 and х50
Jacks and Queens have four multipliers each. Two of these pictures will be enough to produce a winning combo: the lowest payout in these combos will be awarded for 2 pictures. All the rest of the multipliers are paid for combos of 3, 4 and 5 identical pictures.
The other half of the regular symbols are the dragons. They pay higher rewards than the cards do:
- A red dragon will earn you the multipliers of х10, х20 and х75 for 3, 4 and 5 pictures respectively
- A stone creature — х12, х50 and х200
- A yellow dragon — х15, х100 and х500
- A blue dragon — х20, х200 and х1,000
Basic info about the symbols is available right on the reels. All you have to do is click on the appropriate picture to learn more about it.
You have the opportunity to boost your winnings for a regular spin by playing the risk game. To access the game you need to click on the Gamble button. This is when two eggs — a yellow one and a blue one — will pop up in front of you.
You have to guess which eggs hide the baby dragon. Click on one of the eggs to make your selection. If you selection is correct, your initial reward will be doubled. If you guess incorrectly, your reward will be forfeited.
You can increase your rewards in the risk round as many as five times. Next, the final reward will automatically be added to your account. To claim your current winnings and stop taking a risk, click on the Collect button.
Bonuses and free spins
You will be catching dragons during the regular spins. A cage underneath the last reel has been provided for this purpose. If a picture of one of the four dragons comes up in that cage, the dragon is considered as being caught. The process of catching the dragons will be displayed around the spin button. Once all four dragons have been caught, you will earn an extra payout in credits. This payout is called Dragon Bounty. Then the dragon catching begins anew.
Please keep in mind that free spins will be triggered by appropriate symbols. Three pictures of a volcano will get you 10 free spins, four will get you 15 and five will get you 20. Winning combinations during the free spins may start at the either of the outermost reels. But only the highest-paying one landed on an active payline will earn you a reward.
At times the Bonus symbol may land on the reels during the free spins. Each time it happens you have to pick the position for the fixed Wild symbol. Fields on the second and fourth reels are the only ones available for your selection. Each Bonus symbol will also earn you three extra free spins.
