Medieval legends are filled with stories about brave knights who slew vicious dragons to save a fair maiden from its claws. A Dragon’s Story has a brave knight and a dragon, but the princess is missing, in order for a great battle to take place.
Yet the battle in this video pokie game is focused on winning a big amount of money on the reels and transferring it to your balance. No matter how scary dragons usually are, here the main villain has a cartoon look and adds to the overall fun design of the game. The animations and effects are really amusing so you can play very long sessions without getting bored.
A Dragons Story is the latest video pokie game designed by NextGen Gaming. This software provider has a decent share in the online gambling industry, mostly thanks to the Quickfire platform, on which their games are available.
This way the NextGen video pokies can be found in most Microgaming casinos and are a common sight in Skill on Net casinos as well. Most of their games are designed as low to mid variance pokies, but some names in their offer can award life changing amounts of money.
How to Play
This game is designed as a 25 pay line, 5 reels and 3 rows video pokie. The number of pay lines can’t be altered and the bet size goes from $0.25 up to $50 per spin. The auto play button will come in handy if you decide to try this pokie, because once you start spinning you are in for a very long session.
A Dragons Story is another addition to the Super Bet video pokie games coming from this software provider. Next to the reels is the Super Bet Button which can be activated on 2 extra levels. This increases the minimum bet to a maximum of $0.50 if you are playing on the minimum 0.01 coin size. In return under each reel a baby dragon will appear which can award extra wild symbols on the reels in every spin.
This option is highly recommended because it can really help boost your winnings and doesn’t increase the total bet size too much. From the bonus rounds, A Dragons Story has a cash and a free spins bonus. The cash bonus is triggered randomly with brave Sir William entering Ruffs lair and a battle takes place. Here you have a choice between 3 flames in different colors. Once you choose a flame the dragon sets Williams bottom on fire and as he runs around the reels cash prizes are awarded.
The free spins bonus is triggered if you get at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This awards you with 10 free spins and all prizes are doubled. In this feature the super bet option is especially needed because the baby dragons flame the reels awarding wilds more often. This way you can get a few wilds in each spin and have a decent winings. The free spins can be retriggered by landing another set of 3 scatters on the reels.
Like most other NextGen video pokies the pay table here is poor. The scatters have the biggest payout for 5 of them on the reels awarding a 100 x bet win. The wilds have a slightly smaller payout of 80 x bet for 5 of them on a pay line and the rest of the symbols just go lower. This is more of a video pokie game for wagering bonuses and having fun instead of playing to win big amounts of money.
Experienced gamblers, who are fans of NextGen Gaming video pokies, will notice that A Dragons Story is a clone game from Foxin Wins and Foxin Wins Again. Too many details are the same and we were hoping for more originality from the designers in NextGen. Still we like their video pokie games and decided to test this game for a very long session.
After about 1,000 on a $1 bet, with the Super Bet option on maximum, our balance was a small $80 in plus. Just like the original version this is a low to mid variance game. Winnings during base play are small to medium, but they come very often.
If you need help in meeting some big wagering requirement this is the game for you. On the other hand we never did get a win of 100 x bet in the bonus round, even with 2 retriggers. Overall A Dragons Story really is a fun game to play, but we can’t recommend it if you are aiming for some big payout.
