Dragon’s Inferno Slot
This slot has all the great hallmarks of a live WMS slot that has made the transition online. The quality of the graphics is way above what you could expect to find on online-only games. This includes fire-breathing dragons, chests full of treasure and valiant knights setting out to do battle.
Game play is also super-smooth and professional. In addition to the free spins game (which comes complete with stirring music), there is a replicating wilds feature which can turn a lot of the reels into extra wild symbols – giving you plenty of potential for big pay-outs.
Playing the Dragon’s Inferno Slot
There are 30 win lines for this game, though these are not changeable like they are in many other WMS games. This keeps things simple at the start; you simply decide how much money to bet from a list of options. The smallest spin is just 30c, while it is possible to bet $90 per spin. As with all WMS titles, there is an auto-play option available to save you having to click each time.
I’m really impressed with the graphics for this slot. The symbols are above a shaded blue background, with dragon-fire as the surround of the reels. The dragon symbols themselves are oversized, with an amazing fire-breathing animation when it makes up a win. Having the top or bottom of a dragon symbol alongside the playing card suits increases the wins – and the dragons trigger the free spins feature too.
This is far from the only detailed symbol. The treasure chest (wilds) are glowing and spray coins and gems outwards when they are part of a win. The crystal ball in the claw looks great, as does the archer and warrior with a sword. The elven woman with pink fire coming from her hands is another beautifully produced symbol.
Apart from the stirring classical (film type) soundtrack to the free games round, the sounds for this game are the standard WMS slot noises. This is a small let-down, with such attention to the graphics, some more suitable sounds could have completed the atmosphere nicely.
The best paying symbol is the wild treasure chest. 5 of these will get you 500 coins, with 200 coins for just 4 from the left. The human characters (warrior, elf and archer) are next; these are worth 200 coins for 5. Next in the prizes list come the books and the weapons – followed by the playing card suits which make up the smaller (though still useful) wins.
The spreading wilds occurred when I got 4 of the treasure chests; the middle one had a golden dragon symbol on it. The game then announced spreading wilds and the dragon spat fire from its mouth which covered 5 more of the symbols on the reels. This gave me a lot of winning combinations, resulting in the ‘coin fountain’ big win animation.
Free spins are triggered by the red dragon symbols. When you hit 2 of these on the reels, the remaining reels sparkle and speed up until you find out whether you have hit the 3rd one. You then go to different set of reels to go through your 10 free spins. All wins are doubled during the feature; your total is accumulated on the bottom right of the reels. You can win more spins during this bonus by hitting 3+ red dragons once again. At the end of this bonus you will see a message with your total win amount, and then return to the regular reels.
I enjoyed this slot, and will almost certainly be coming back for a future spin. The graphics are the stand out feature, though the replicating wilds also adds some interest to the game-play that is absent in many WMS titles. The free spins game is fairly standard, though doubling your wins can make a big difference to the prizes – especially if you are lucky enough to retrigger.
