Welcome to the Land of the Dragons
Elemental forces wage explosive war for the possession of the highly-desired Dragon Shard in this video slot. Become a hero in this story as you witness the Fire Queen and Ice King battling for this ancient artefact that is said to bestow power over all the elements when you have the shard in hand.
Who will claim the Dragon Shard? Spin the reels as you enjoy the dynamic virtual effects and swelling soundtrack. You’ll encounter super-stacked Mystery Symbols for five-of-a-kind wins and Win Booster™ to enhance your payout from both directions. Scatters, free spins, and permanent Mystery Reels™ all contribute to the fun and bonus features packed into this title.
Playing the Game
Dragon Shard is comprised of 5×5 reels with 40 fixed paylines. You receive payout going left to right with Win Booster™ off. With Win Booster™ on, you receive payout based on both left-to-right and right-to-left combinations, paying a max of 800x the stake.
With a medium volatility and RTP of 96.77%, the smallest coin wager you can bet is .05 and the largest is 100. If you double your wager up to 200, you can activate the Win Booster, which greatly increases your chances of a big payout.
Similar to the game Fortunium (created by Stormcraft but with a steampunk theme), the low-value symbols are clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. High-value symbols are the Dragon Shard, Ice Dragon, Fire Dragon, Ice King, and Fire Queen. The Ice King and Fire Queen will award you 8x your bet when you stack five in a pay line.
Boosts, Free Spins, and Scatters
Special features in Dragon Shard give you more options to win. From stacked Mystery Symbols to activated Mystery Reels™, you have the potential to win up to $160,000.
Wild Symbols, Scatters, and Free Spins
In this game, the Dragon Shard slot logo stands as the wild symbol. This symbol substitutes all other pay symbols, except scatters, and pays 20x your bet if you stack five of a kind. The dragon eye is the scatter. You need a minimum of three scatter symbols to trigger free spins. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet, excluding the Win Booster™. These wins are added to your payline wins and will pay in any position.
Once you score three or more scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin, you’ll trigger 10 free spins. Once you trigger free spins with three, four, or five scatters, you’ll encounter up to three Mystery Reels™. Once triggered, these permanent bars of Mystery Symbols will appear on reels two, three, or four. Any scatter landing during this feature will add an extra free spin.
Your most lucrative option here would be to score five scatters. All the middle reels turn into Mystery Reels™, giving you the biggest chance to hit the maximum win with just one spin. Your top winning combo of 800x your bet looks like stacked wilds on reels one and five, along with the Mystery Reels™.
For a little more information on Mystery Symbols, these symbols appear as a question mark and can appear on all reels on any spin in the base game. They also appear in free spins. After the reels stop spinning, the symbols, including wild, will be revealed. However, Mystery Symbols can’t turn into scatter symbols. Super stacked Mystery Symbols can reveal wilds and high or low symbols.
Win Booster™ Feature
Before you spin the reels, decide on the Win Booster™. By waging 100% on top of your default bet, you’ll activate this boost. Each credit will double after selecting this feature. Along with receiving the bonus of left-to-right and right-to-left payout, Mystery Symbols can only reveal high-value pay symbols.
