Developer Pragmatic Play has announced the launch of its brand-new video slot, Dragon Hero.
The game is based on dragons and utilises an Asian-inspired design with symbols that include hats, frogs, fish, pots, scrolls, yin-yang wild symbols, and dragon scatter symbols.
Dragon Hero uses a 5×4 grid layout with 20 paylines, and it has an RTP of 96%, which is above average for most video slots.
Alongside the above, the Dragon Hero slot comes with high variance, so you’re more likely to make large, infrequent wins while playing.
The game is available now, and Dragon Hero can be found at mobile casinos like PlayOJO, Videoslots, SpinGenie, SlotsMillion, Casumo, 44Aces, LeoVegas, Ice36, All British Casino, and more.
Although it was developed by Pragmatic Play, the game isn’t as advanced as most other slots by the studio, as it only comes with a few select features.
For example, the game has two types of Wild symbols; ordinary Wild symbols and Super Wild symbols, both of which substitute for all symbols except the Scatter.
The Super Wild appears only on the three middle reels, and whenever it lands, it holds up to three Wild symbols. After the spin, the Wild symbols held by the Super Wild are sent to random positions on the grid.
Meanwhile, landing three to five Scatter symbols awards up to 10 bonus wheels, which randomly award between one to three free spins. During the Free Spins mode, Super Wild symbols are in play, but the symbols remain on-screen and release Wild symbols with each new spin.
What’s more, the Super Wild symbols can be upgraded to send additional Wild symbols out by collecting two Scatter symbols. Unfortunately, the feature cannot be re-triggered.
Finally, the Dragon Hero slot allows you to purchase entry into the Free Spins mode for 100x your bet. When activated, you’ll spin three Scatter symbols.
Irina Cornides, the Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “Dragon Hero is a bold and exciting title with every spin in both the base game and free spins round being able to award players multiple wilds, features, and super wilds.
“Our slot roadmap for this year is set to build on the success of 2022 and players can expect the signature breadth of engaging features, themes, and gameplay that Pragmatic Play is synonymous for.”
She added: “We’re excited at the prospect of creating content that encapsulates what it is to be a player favourite that our fans can return to time and again.”
The launch of Dragon Hero marks Pragmatic Play’s first game of 2023, and it follows a string of popular releases in 2022, including Fury Of Odin MegaWays, Release The Kraken 2, Octobeer Fortunes, Down The Rails, Gorilla Mayhem, and more.
