How to Play Dragon Shard
Talking about Dragon Shard graphics and layout, we have to agree that Microgaming has outdone themselves with this pokie. They have four card suits to represent reel symbols. These are low-value symbols as they high-value ones are represented by the Ice Dragon, Fire Dragon, king and queen.
The high-value symbols give players 8x their stake if they get 5 on a payline.
The whole game layout includes:
- Reels: 5
- Rows: 5
- Paylines: 40
- Wild Symbol: Dragon Shard logo
- Scatter Symbol: Eye
- Min Coin Size: $0.05
- Max Coin Size: $200
- Free Spins: Yes
The Dragon Shard pokie comes with a win booster feature that pays from left to right and vice versa. It sets players back 2x their stake to activate, and all their bets get doubled once it’s activated.
The wild symbol is represented by the Dragon Shard logo. It can substitute any symbol adjacent to it, except for the scatter symbol.
The frost and the sun queens come stacked five high while all the other low and high paying symbols are stacked two symbols high.
The feature can emerge on the reels at any time, and whenever that happens, the symbols can be transformed into medium, low, or wild symbols. It is only the wild symbol that makes up for the high-valued symbols payout by paying players 20x their bet for 5 of a kind.
Graphics and Sounds
Microgaming and Stormcraft Studious has done a marvellous job in choosing the graphic style of this pokie. They have made the visuals pop, which adds more power to the pokie’s narrative.
The game takes place in a spectacular valley between lush mountains covered in trees and grass. The reels are covered in a golden frame, and players can hear a sweet soundtrack playing in the background. There are also instruments playing and choir singing. Whenever a player spins the reels or land on a winning combination, other sound effects play in the background.
Dragon Shard comes with the option of free spins as a unique feature. Bettors can play it when they see three or more Dragon Eye scatter symbols appear on any part on the reels. If these scatters pop up, they trigger 10x free spins. For each scatter symbol that pops, players get a new free fall.
Players can apply the mystery symbols to the free spins too. Depending on the number of scatters that pop, they can get up to three mystery reels, and 3x wild reels stacked on every free spin for a massive win
