One of the surprises that Playtech had for us this summer is called Dragon Bond. This slot machine has Asian inspirations: legends, dragons and other mythological creatures in the region.
It is not the only Asian-themed slot that Playtech has launched in recent times. Remember, for example, Wo Long, Ways of the Phoenix or Coin! Coin! Coin! This release is currently not available in Spanish casinos , but we are beginning to be in the coming weeks.
In this case, the design of the machine is a pagoda in violet tones with lanterns that are reflected in the calm waters. The music, however, does not accompany the theme of this game, but quite reminiscent of Mario Bros .
The layout is quite traditional, with six rollers, four rows and fifty pay lines. The return for the player is relatively high for the average of this type of games and amounts to almost 97%. The volatility of this machine is, however, quite low.
As for the special functions, we can highlight the Wild Connect. When we get several wild cards in non-adjacent rollers, all the symbols that are between them will also become wild cards. For a screen full of wild cards we will get the Dragon Bonus, which will multiply our bet x250.
The scatter symbol is a temple. In order to take advantage of its advantages, we will have to get them out consecutively from the first roller. If we get three, we will receive 10 free spins; with four, we will have 15; with 5, we will have 25, and if we get six in total, we will take 50 free spins.
This new launch of Playtech leaves us a little cold. On the one hand, its design is beautiful and seems very careful. However, neither image nor sound effects are especially immersive or surprising. We are especially disappointed in the musical aspect, which does not match very well with the imagery of the game: tents, temples, lotus flowers, butterflies, dragons …
On the other hand, the Dragon Bond gameplay is quite traditional. Not bad, but it’s simply not innovative. Yes, we found the Wild Connect function interesting, which gives a bit more excitement to a slot with a high return to the player but with a fairly low volatility.
Okay, it is not the type of machine you would like to get rich with, but the truth is that not all slot users seek to be millionaires overnight. To have a good time and take some coins in your pocket, is a good option.
