Slot Name: Crazy Dragon
USA Players: Accepted
Crazy Dragon offers you an interesting title, but as a 3 reel/1 line slot machine, does it measure up to its name? You will find out in this review, of a classic slot machine which offers an unusual set of features, progressive jackpots and at the same time takes you back to the days of the pub slot machines. The theme is inspired by Chinese dragons, with the rest of the symbols also coming from this country.
Does a slot machine with a classic setup and with a progressive jackpot sound good? Then you’re in luck no matter what your location is. RTG is a developer that offers games to US players as well.
Betting & Jackpots
There isn’t much to work with in this case. You have fixed value coins, at $1 each one, and you can only decide on how many of them you want to use. The bet uses 1 to 3 coins, so the value is between $1 and $3. The payouts are quite good, considering the small number of symbols which are used. The fixed prize is at $3,000, while the progressive jackpot is in the five-figure range. It’s been won at values as high as $46,000 in the past, so keep your fingers crossed.
A couple of features are introduced here, which is unusual since pub slots tend to be quite simple. You have the Yin Yang symbol first, the wild which as usual can substitute for others and helps them form their combinations. It doesn’t do that with the Dragon though. It also doesn’t offer prizes directly.
The Dragon is the other symbol to watch out for. As a trigger for the free spins, you can gain access to them by landing one to three symbols on the pay line. Your reward will be 2, 5 or 20 re-spins. Get them to re-trigger along the way, and you can have a lot more. Get 100 free spins from a single bet, and you win the progressive jackpot, which is an unusual way to trigger the big prize.
It’s not the greatest design that RTG has ever put out, but at least you will only find themed symbols in this slot. There are Yin-Yang symbols, Chinese dragons, fireworks, Bonsai trees and temples, all appropriate images in this case. The look of the game is that of a pub slot which is placed somewhere in a casino, with other machines visible on both sides.
Thanks to the small bets, of up to $3, and the progressive jackpot which can reach impressive values, the game deserves its chance. It helps that it also has free spins to offer alongside the wild symbol, the former being quite rare in 3 reel titles.
