Dragon Palace, released on August 4, 2016, is a dragon-themed casino game created by Lightning Box Games. Dragon Palace is related to Lightning Box’s slot titled Dragons Spell. TopTrend Gaming, Stars Group, SG Digital, and NextGen Gaming have the distribution rights. Some of the rival games of Dragon Palace are Double Dragons from Yggdrasil Gaming, House of Dragon from Microgaming, and Dragon’s Myth from Rabcat Gambling.
A mythical dragon that lives in a palace inspired the name Dragon Palace. The palace has so many stories such that its pagoda roofing style can be seen towering above the clouds. The ferocious dragon is a red beast with a golden lining; it shows its fearsome claws and gnarls menacingly at the palace intruders while letting out purple wisps of breath as it exhales random win multipliers-revealing fire. Nine of the Dragon Palace’s symbols require three, four, or five combinations, while two of the symbols require two, three, four, and five combinations.
Dragon Palace Game Characteristics
With 243 winning ways, the action occurs on a 5X3 grid. These are the twelve Dragon Palace symbols; there are ten ordinary symbols and two special symbols. The ordinary symbols are: an swordsman in blue body armor, a white-and-orange koi carp fish, a golden-yellow tortoise with a golden-brown shell, golden coins with Chinese characters, purple lotus flowers, a blue K, a green J, a golden-brown 10, a purple Q, and a golden-yellow 9. The special symbols are: a free spins-triggering “Bonus” (Scatter) palace and a “Wild” substituting dragon.
To begin with, the players press “Yes” or “No” when asked whether to play with sound; then, a starting page featuring a long-tailed dragon informs about 20 free games and the X15 multiplier.
The following are the Dragon Palace coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $2.50, and $5.00. After the selected coin values have been multiplied by 25 coins, Dragon Palace offers these optional total bets: $0.25 (the minimum bet), $0.50, $0.75, $1.00, $1.25, $2.50, $5.00, $6.25, $12.50, $25.00, $50.00, $62.50, and $125.00 (the maximum bet).
The following are the Dragon Palace payouts for three, four, and five matching symbols, respectively. The koi carp fish has X50, X100, and X350. The tortoise pays X40, X75, and X150. The golden coins offer X25, X50, and X100. The lotus flowers pay X20, X50, and X100. The K has X5, X30, and X75. Getting J, or 10, or Q pays X5, X20, and X50.
Getting two, three, four, and five: 9s pays X2, X5, X20, and X50; while the swordsman symbols offer X5, X100, X500, and X1000. Lastly, getting three, four, and five “Bonus” palace symbols offers: X40 plus eight free games; X100 plus twelve free games; and X400 plus 20 free games.
The biggest advantage of the free games mode are six multipliers, ranging from X2 to X15, that are applied on Wild dragon-based winnings. Assuming that all five swordsman symbols, which have the highest regular payout of X1000, were to be substituted with Wild dragons during a game round where the player has bet the $125.00 maximum bet, then the theoretical non-progressive jackpot would be 125X1000X15, totaling $1,875,000. However, Lightning Box Games has not disclosed this big figure.
Dragon Palace has good software. Particularly, the roaring dragon sound effect is interesting. The choice of graphics is centered on mythology, Buddhism and Feng Shui ideology, ranging from the koi carp fish to the mystic lotus.
