With Game of Thrones coming back on the air in a matter of a few short weeks, the timing for the launch of Relax Gaming’s latest slot is suspect. Why else would an online casino software provider unveil a dragon-themed slot at this time of the year? The more pressing question is, will the new Dragons Awakening slot be any good?
Relax Gaming is certainly not the largest of online casino games developers, so many wouldn’t be surprised if they found it a touch difficult to compete with some of their rival’s dragon-themed slot titles. However, the slot leaves an excellent first impression on players as it debuts this week.
Not Your Average Dragon-Themed Slot
There are plenty of rival dragon-themed slot games out there to compare this new release to, so it won’t be overly easy for Relax Gaming to make that big of a splash with this release. Even so, Dragons Awakening does feature nifty graphics, 5 reels and 20 paylines, and arguably, more importantly, cheap bets. Those range from 20p up to £100 a spin.
This new release is non-progressive, which means that it carries a fixed jackpot prize. That prize is worth around 100x a total bet. Given that the slot has an RTP (return to player) rate of 96.9%, and is a low variance/risk release, it will ideally suit players operating on smaller budgets who don’t like overly costly bets.
Symbol Transformations and Free Spins
Lava appears as a wild symbol in this game, and it can replace any other symbols save for scatters. Those scatters appear as fossil emblems and landing 3 or more of these on the reels will be enough to trigger the slot’s primary bonus round.
The feature is a free spin bonus, and players will start with between 5 and 30 free spins. Throughout those spins, low-paying icons re removed and replaced with better-paying symbols. The slot also features a Dragon’s Rage bonus. This can be triggered at random following any spin in the base game and can also replace low-paying icons with better -paying ones, just like in the free spin round.
It will Be a Limited Release for Dragons Awakening
There are certainly things to like in the new Dragons Awakening slot. In fact, the only real downside to the game is that it won’t receive a huge release. Relax Gaming slots only appear at a handful of major casinos, so the chances of many players stumbling across it at their favourite sites aren’t likely to be too high.
