Thanks to the Floating Dragon slot machine, Reel Kingdom have significantly expanded their current series of fruit slots with the “Hold and Spin” feature, they also added a bonus round from the Big Bass Bonanza slot. The Asian theme is a little unusual, since most of the Western audience is usually not interested in it. However, statistics suggest otherwise, which gives Big Bass fans a reason to think about it. The developers went overboard with the number of fundraising functions stacked on top of each other in this slot, but fans of this mechanic will only be happy about it. Combinations of 5 matching premium symbols will bring you winnings from x20 to x200 of your current bet, which is quite good, and you can only get “cash” coins on the middle reel. This means that in this slot there are fewer symbols that prevent you from winning here than in similar slot machines, and Reel Kingdom should think about creating a new version of this slot that will be more attractive to Western audiences.
Features of the Floating Dragon slot machine The symbols with gold coins can only drop out on the middle reel, and they always have a random cash value, which can range from x1 to x20 of your current bet. By knocking out 3 gold coins on reel 3, you can activate the “hold and spin” function. The symbols that started this function remain in place, and when this bonus is triggered, you are given 3 respins (hearts). The reels are always cleared, with the exception of the middle reel, and you either do not drop anything or you get new gold coins. Each new money symbol that you get is added to your total winnings, and this also resets the re-spin counter back to 3. And this function has one interesting feature, the three gold coins, thanks to which you started the function, their amounts continue to be added to your total winnings for each successful respin when you land at least 1 new gold coin.
In addition to the regular money symbols, you can also drop a diamond symbol during the “Hold and Spin” function. The diamond can add an amount to your total winnings, which is equal to x100 to x5,000 of your current bet and it can be regarded as a randomly drawn jackpot symbol. The minimum guaranteed win in this feature is x20 of your current bet, if you win less than this amount you will be given 3 new respins. Reel Kingdom has added its own version of the bonus round to this slot, similar to the one you can see in the Fishin ‘slot machine Frenzy, and it activates every time you hit 3, 4, or 5 dragons in one spin. This will win you 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively, and the seductive Asian woman is both the joker and the “collector” symbol during this feature. You will receive the cash prizes indicated on the “fish” symbols only if you also get a joker in the same spin … The jokers you hit are added to the counter above the reels, and for every 4 wild symbols you will receive +10 free spins (no more than 3 times). It also increases your total bonus round multiplier to 2x, 3x and 10x after the first, second and third (last) restart, respectively. Impressions after 200 spins on Floating Dragon Our Highlights video takes longer than usual this time around, and this associated with multiple re-launches of the bonus round. However, first you can see how the “hold and spin” function works, which starts at 0:48 in a video that is 6 and a half minutes long. At 2:16, we were able to trigger the bonus round thanks to 5 dragon scatters and thus start with 20 free spins. However, whether we are lucky or not, you can only find out by clicking on the play button.
Reel Kingdom has essentially released their own copy of Fishin ‘Frenzy, Big Bass Bonanza, although it has an Asian theme and has also added a “hold and spin” feature from their famous large fruit slots series. This certainly makes this slot original in many ways and there are some tricks and twists that make this slot somewhat interesting. Firstly, the maximum possible winnings here were more than doubled compared to the Big Bass slot, or rather, it is x5000 from your current bet, and the diamond symbol can bring you this amount at any time while the “hold and spin” function is active. In the bonus round, the maximum possible winnings are also x5000 of your current bet, and it will be stopped if you win this amount. We also liked the recurring wins generated by the gold coins that launched the “hold and spin” feature, but we are concerned that the Asian theme might alienate a large portion of the Western audience.
Floating Dragon is not only a fun base game, but also excellent additional features to help you get paid: Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins. Wild, represented by a beautiful girl, replaces all other symbols in the game, except for special ones. This will greatly simplify the process of drawing up winning combinations. Scatter is represented here by a dragon. Catching 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels activates free spins. You can get up to 20 spins in total. While this function is running, Wilds will collect the values of all fish icons on the screen. Every 4th Wild will bring you 10 extra spins and increase the multiplier of money symbols. Cash symbols trigger the ‘Hold & Spin’ bonus – you need to catch 3 of them on the center reel. For the duration of this bonus, all money symbols remain on the screen, and other icons disappear. You will have 3 spins on which you need to collect as many money symbols as possible.
The group of expensive icons in Floating Dragon consists of a ship, a bird, a butterfly, a kite and koi carps. They all differ in cost. For combinations of these symbols, you can get payments in the amount of 250 to 50,000 coins. The low-cost icons are the standard card symbols: A, K, Q, J, 10. The winnings that the lines with them will pay out range from 125 to 2500 coins. In order to change the rate, you must use the buttons on the control panel. For each spin, you can bet from 0.10 to 250 coins.
