Forest Dragons Game Characteristics
Forest Dragons’ notable features: re-triggerable 128 maximal free games; five bet multipliers—X1, X2, X4, X6 and X10; three denominations; five bet levels; expanding grid; two progressive jackpots; and thousands of dynamic two-way pay lines.
A turquoise pagoda and either a stony dark cerulean waterfall or a nightly dragon-filled forest form Forest Dragons’ background. The irregular, carved and golden grid forms a 3-4-4-4-3 dimension; the regular game’s 576 winning ways are left-to-right and vice versa.
The “— denom +” button has three denominations: $0.01, $0.02, and $0.04. The “bet” buttons are actually the five bet level options: 88, 176, 352, 528 and 880. Thus, Forest Dragons has fifteen total bets.
Bet level 88’s bet sizes: $0.88 (min bet), $1.76, and $3.52. Bet level 176’s bet sizes: $1.76, $3.52, and $7.04. Bet level 352’s total bets: $3.52, $7.04, and $14.08. Bet level 528’s bet sizes: $5.28, $10.56, and $21.12. Bet level 880’s total bets: $8.80, $17.60, and $35.20 (max bet).
The twelve symbols in Forest Dragons include two special and ten regular symbols. Special symbols: the free games-unlocking golden-and-cyan scatter has a white and a red koi fish (a golden-and-green Yin and yang in some versions); and the substitute is a rectangular golden-and-teal “WILD”.
Ordinary symbols: an oval red, blue and golden “River Dragon” brand name; golden dragon’s head; green dragon’s head; green-and-golden reptilian dragon; green avian dragon; avian dragon’s head; red A; blue K; green J; and orange Q.
These are the Forest Dragons payouts. Three “River Dragon” names pay X25, four “River Dragon” names pay X100, and five “River Dragon” names pay X400. Three golden/green dragons’ heads pay X15, four golden/green heads pay X50, and five golden/green heads pay X100.
Three, four and five golden-and-green dragons/avian dragons/avian heads pay X5, X15, and X40, respectively. Three A/K/J/Q pays X5, four A/K/J/Q pays X10, and five A/K/J/Q pays X25.
Three koi fish/yin and yang in the three larger reels offer eight free games whose mode has two advantageous features—PowerXStream and Reel Surge. First, its potential is 128 maximum free games per round. Secondly, during the free games; the grid’s second, third and fourth reels can increase vertically. Thus, the original 3-4-4-4-3 grid can increase to a 3-6-6-6-3 grid, or, eventually, a 3-8-8-8-3 grid with a whooping 4608 winning ways.
The selected denomination determines these Forest Dragons’ two progressive jackpot counters at top left. Mini jackpot: $200.00 (denomination $0.01); $400.00 (denomination $0.02) and $800.00 (denomination $0.04). Minor jackpot: $2000.00 (denomination $0.01), $4000.00 (denomination $0.02) and $8000.00 (denomination $0.04).
The HTML5 Forest Dragons software supports mobile and desktops. Sounds: oriental, rattling, chinking, retro, and roaring dragons. Animated 3D graphics: swaying and lunging dragons, and flashing light blobs.
