Go back in time to when mighty Vikings ruled the seas in this video slot machine entitled Dragon Ship. This stunning five-reel online video slot from Play ‘N’ Go features two valuable features and turbulent seas in the background to set the tone. Win big and enjoy sailing the seas with these Norsemen as you spin the reels.
Dark skies, the foreboding seas and lots of Scandinavian embellishments can only mean one thing – this is a game centered around Vikings and to be frank, those infamous pillagers and marauders are almost always a welcome addition to any online slot. Dragon Ship is a superb looking release from Play ‘n Go that features some crisp animations and even better sound effects.
Dragon Ship is a five-reel and 15-payline offering that has some of the highest quality graphics you will ever see in the industry today. The background to those transparent reels is a real sea beneath a cloudy sky and it delivers the perfect atmosphere to this brooding game.
Before you get to set sail for the high seas, you must first decide how much you want to bet. The “Coin Value” button on the bottom-left lets you set your base coin denomination. Press the left and right arrows beside “Coins” to alter the number of coins on each payline. The maximum number of paylines is 15. You can lessen this by using the buttons beside “Lines”. Use “Bet Max” to enable all lines and wager 5 coins per line. Hit “Spin” to start playing, or use “Auto Play” to spin automatically within any interruptions.
Dragon Ship is a fun game to play because of its astounding visuals and sounds while also boasting of the potential for big wins, which is appealing as this is a medium variance game.
Players will also find the wins in the free spins feature to be a key draw of the game with the Pick-A-Prize Bonus feature awarding roughly 20-30 times the stake on average. This is a great-looking game with some well-rendered graphics, superimposing the reels onto a real video of the sea, which works oh so well when it could easily go oh so gone wrong.
Playing card symbols make up the lower-values on the reels but the higher values are all Viking-related and include a ceremonial horn, a shield, an ornate battle-ax and of course a blonde-haired Viking.
The wild symbol is the prow of a long ship, which only appears on reels one five and can be stacked. The golden treasure chest is a scatter symbol that appears on reels one, three and five only.
The wild symbols are stacked on reels one and five and you need to completely cover those two positions to trigger this feature. You will next receive 15 free spins but the good news is that reels one and five remain completely wild for the duration of this round. However, the bad news is that this feature cannot be re-triggered.
Pick A Prize Bonus
You will need to land three of the treasure chest scatter symbols on reels one, three and five to trigger this feature and it’s over rather quickly. All you need to do is choose one of the chests for a lovely coin prize.
After each win, it’s possible to place all that money at stake by clicking the “Gamble” button beneath the reels. You can try and double or quadruple your winnings by accurately guessing the next card color or suit drawn from the pile.
