Dragon Dance Microgaming Game
Dragon Dance is the companion title to another Microgaming game that was released on the same day, that being Bikini Party. If you’ve seen that game already then our best advice would be to either play this one straight away if you liked it or move on to something else as they are both functionally identical. However, our main criticism with Bikini Party was that the visuals looked like they were already around ten years out of date and we’re pleased to say that the same cannot be said of Dragon Dance. Sure, it is yet another slot game with an Asian theme, but the symbols are at least a bit more interesting. Even the playing card icons have subtle, themed additions to them that at least make a bit of a change from the norm.
If you’re not already familiar with the Bikini Party gameplay then you can stick around here as we’ll be going through what Dragon Dance has to offer in its own right, including free spins and the often useful respin feature.
All Pays and Second Chances
The restrictions offered by win lines are so last year and 243 ways to win has quickly solidified its position as the pattern of choice on most new Microgaming releases. It’s in full effect on Dragon Dance so while the symbols aren’t necessarily inspired, the returns certainly can be. There’s an element of a second chance when seeking a big win too thanks to the Respin feature, although it comes at a cost. Each of the five reels is assigned a price following each spin and what players are paying for is essentially the opportunity to spin that reel alone rather than the whole board. This could be with the intention of filling in the missing symbol in a potential five of a kind win or landing the elusive third scatter required for the bonus round. The game certainly knows its maths though and will rarely offer any added value with its pricing, with opportunities to land a big win costing far more than perhaps converting two of a kind into three. If there’s a chance of completing five of a kind and landing a third scatter then the prices can even become prohibitive!
A Free Spins Bonus
That aforementioned combination of three or more scatters in view at the same time will lead players into a free spins round. The volleyball is the symbol of choice and a successful combination will award fifteen free games, together with an automatic three times multiplier on all prizes. Like the symbols, it isn’t the most inspired bonus round ever but it can certainly be responsible for some decent returns.
Dragon Dance Mobile Slot
It would be a bit harsh of any developer to release two identical games and only launch one on mobiles. With Bikini Party Mobile already firmly in the books, Dragon Dance joins it and is a great addition for many of the same reasons. The games represent one of very few opportunities to make use of the respin feature on phones and tablets and solid, consistent action often goes down particularly well among mobile players.
In 2016 so far, Microgaming has released Lucky Twins, Peek a Boo, Bikini Party and Dragon Dance. It is arguably the slowest start that the developer has made to a year in recent memory but with other developers hogging the spotlight it might be the right decision. Nevertheless, they all have their own charms and you can play Dragon Dance right here on this page and the other new titles throughout the site, all with no deposit or download required.
