Imperial Dragon takes its visual inspiration from the orient, with scorchingly good graphics and enough quality features to fill a small dragon’s cave. This five-reel, 20 pay-line slot offers an RTP of 95.53% which is perfectly reasonable but probably doesn’t reflect the enjoyment of the Golden Dragon Free Spin round. By spinning three Golden Dragon scatter symbols you will be transported to an ancient land of four reel boards. Collect more dragons to unlock and upgrade these boards and increase your prize haul.

About the Game
The graphics are nothing short of spectacular on Imperial Dragon with much consideration given to the authentic colour palette used for the reels and the background.
While basic symbols are represented by traditional playing cards, premium symbols take their visual cues from traditional Chinese iconography with temples, dragons and gold coins amongst the big money-spinners. Watch out for dragon with a crystal symbol as this is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except for the golden dragon scatter.
Golden Dragon Free Spins
Spin three, four or five Golden Dragon scatter symbols for 15, 20 or 25 roaring free spins.
Once activated you will be presented with four sets of reels. Only the first is active to begin with, but you can unlock the others by collecting golden dragons. More dragons also means more features. Here’s the breakdown:
12 Golden Dragons: Unlock second set of reels, five more free spins, wild becomes an expanding wild
18 Golden Dragons: Unlock third set of reels, five more free spins, wild becomes an expanding wild, removes 10, J and Q from the reels
24 Golden Dragons: Unlock fourth set of reels, five more free spins, wild becomes an expanding wild, all basic symbols removed
Don’t overlook these circling birds. They can interact with the game-board during any spin in the base game to turn symbols on reels two, three or four into scatters.
As oriental-themed slots go, Imperial Dragon might not roast the competition but it is definitely up there in terms of quality and playability. The graphics are authentically drawn with thought given at every point, from the blossom trees and temples in background shots, to the animation of the golden dragon scatters when the awesome Golden Dragon Free Spins are triggered. All of the visuals complimented by the authentic choice of oriental sound effects as you try to get your hands on the flaming 20,000 coin jackpot.
