Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win bonus features
Dragon Pearls employs a colour scheme that’s fairly typical of slots wishing to evoke a Chinese-themed feel, decked out in crimson red and opulent gold.
The paytable presents us with a number of wealth-related symbols, including a money tree (oh how we wish those were real!), coins, and a golden frog. There are also a set of A, Q, K and J royal suit symbols. The most valuable symbol is the golden dragon’s face, paying out 20 times the player’s initial wager.
The Wild symbol is a yin-yang, surrounded by two gold dragons. This symbol can substitute for any of the others, except the Scatter and the Bonus Symbols, which look like flaming pearls.
Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win Free Spins
The Scatter symbol, which appears as a vase brimming with coins, is the one to watch when hoping for free spins. These symbols can land on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and when three land on the same spin, the free spins feature is activated.
The player receives 8 free spins and during these spins, only high-value symbols appear on the reels. With this feature active, landing another three Scatters will add a further 8 free spins to the tally.
The Bonus Game can be triggered during a free spins round.
Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win Bonus Game
The Bonus Symbols trigger the Bonus Game – players need 6 to launch the feature. The six Bonus Symbols that activate the bonus game remain locked in place for the duration of the feature.
Once activated, the Bonus Game awards three re-spins. Only Bonus symbols can appear on the reels during this time and every additional Bonus symbol that lands awards an additional re-spin.
The feature ends either when all 15 reel spaces are occupied by Bonus symbols or no more symbols appear on the last re-spin.
Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win jackpot
During the Bonus Game, players will notice that some of the pearl symbols have words instead of numbers, namely ‘Mini’ and ‘Major’. Landing the former will award the smallest jackpot, worth x30 the bet while the latter will award the medium-sized jackpot, worth x150 the bet.
If the game screen is completely covered in bonus symbols, the Grand jackpot is awarded. This is worth x1,000 the bet!
Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win has an RTP value of 95.01% and a medium variance.
