Dragon’s Wild Fire Pokie Review
The Chinese dragon is a symbol of power, strength and good fortune – but only for those who are worthy of it. Are you ready to brave the Dragon’s Wild Fire pokie from Novomatic, and to see whether you are worthy enough to be rewarded?
A Chinese temple provides the backdrop for this colourfully illustrated game, reels spinning to a soundtrack of traditional Chinese melodies. Pretty standard gameplay gets a lot more interesting when you get into the bonus rounds, when a few lucky symbols can allow you to leave with fortune’s favour.
About This Pokie
Coins Range:0.01 To 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:7/No
Wild Symbol: fire represents the wild symbol in this pokie, and if enough of these appear on screen then you will earn x500 your stake in prizes. There is an additional feature called Stepping Wilds which occur during the bonus rounds, and which we will discuss below.
Scatter Symbol: the symbol for yin and yang represents perfect balance and harmony, but in this game it also represents your ticket to enter the bonus game, where you will have seven free spins of the reels.
This free spin section of the game activates what are called ‘Stepping Wilds’. Before each free spin you are asked to choose which direction you wish the Wild symbols to expand if they appear on the screen. So for example if you choose ‘left’ and a Wild symbol shows up on the 4th reel, then it will expand to the left to cover the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels as well. You can win extra free spins during the free spin game.
Flaming Re-Spin Bonus: if during the free spins a stacked Dragon symbol appears to cover an entire reel, then you trigger the Flaming Re-Spin Bonus. This is a good thing. All the Dragon and Wild symbols will be fixed and you get a free re-spin.
If you improve your position by getting at least one more Dragon or Wild then this too is fixed, and you have another free spin. You keep going until you don’t get any more Dragon or Wilds, at which time your (hopefully extensive) winnings are paid out.
The fiery Dragon symbol brings good fortune when it appears 5 times on the reels, as you will benefit to the tune of 400 times your stake. 5 Wild symbols will give you 500 times your bet, but the biggest wins are to be found within the bonus rounds.
The Flaming Re-Spin Bonus can win you enough to buy a golden dragon for a pet, and being a Novomatic game there is, of course, the (pretty drab) ‘double your money’ option available after every win.
The Stepping Wilds and Flaming Re-Spins take this dragon-themed pokie out of the realms of the ordinary and turn it into something a whole lot more interesting. We like a bit of interactive game-play in our pokies, so this fire-breathing effort from Novomatic gets a roar of approval.
