The Floating Dragon slot uses a classic 5 reel, 3 row, 10 payline machine. To create a winner, land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols or wilds from left to right on a payline, starting from the leftmost reel.
Stakes range from between 10p and £ 250 per spin. Click on the plus and minus buttons to change your bet accordingly. There’s a Quick Spin and Autoplay function available in some countries (not the UK from October 2021).
The Floating Dragon RTP is 96.71% which is impressive and well above the 96% average. The design might be rather gentle but beneath the façade is a rather fiery game. It’s not quite as volatile as some in the Pragmatic Play stable but it’s hot enough. One a scale of 1 to 10, I’d put the volatility at around an 8. The maximum win here is 5,000 x your total stake.
Thanks to the Chinese theme, the traditional sound and graphics of Floating Dragon are very easy to grasp. Surrounded by trees filled with beautiful pink flowers, a simple and very traditional soundtrack plays in the background as it spins. It is great for the setting and works very well overall.
The drums are set against the blue sky. There you will find Asian kingdom symbols from A to 10 that appear alongside fish, kite, butterfly and bird. The Old Ship is the most useful standard glyph. If you are lucky enough to see 5 of them on a payline, you can look forward to a reward equal to 200 times your total stake.
The dragon’s head is a scatter. There is also a coin symbol that can only appear on the 3rd reel. Both of these symbols can activate the function. The lovely princess is wild, but she only plays during the free spins. In addition to replacing all the standard symbols in winning combinations, she can collect fish money prizes, add additional free spins and use multipliers.
You can play Floating Dragon on mobile devices and tablets, as well as on desktops and laptops. A simple 5×3 layout works well, particularly on portable devices.
Floating Dragon Bonus Features
Floating Dragon has a couple of potentially interesting bonus features. There is a streak repeat feature, as well as a free spins round in which the net cash prizes of the wilds are attached to the fish symbols. Collect jokers to add more free spins and use multipliers.
The free spins feature is triggered when you land 3, 4 or 5 dragons on a single spin. Your reward is 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
You will see that there are monetary amounts attached to the fish symbols. Every time a wild symbol lands, it collects the values of all fish symbols anywhere on the reels in this free spin. Each landing wild symbol is also collected in one meter.
After you collect 4 wilds, you will get a re-launch with 10 more free spins added to your total. It also brings a multiplier into play. This 2x multiplier applies to the monetary values applied to the fish symbols that the wild woman collects.
Subsequent re-spins also add 10 free spins to your account and also increase the fish harvest multiplier to 3x and then 10x. If a single Wild appears on the reels at the end of a free spin, fish money symbols may appear in random locations, offering another chance to win.
Floating Dragon Review Summary – Nice Look at a Classic Chinese Theme
I liked the Floating Dragon slot. The rather restrained design is stylish and impressive. The gameplay is pretty good too. I’ve seen similar features in other slots, but free spins, fundraising and multipliers are a great combination.
Bigger wins will come from diamonds during re-spins or from multipliers in free spins. Winning 5000x bets per spin is pretty decent. A little warning about the discrepancy here. It’s more fluid than you’d expect from its delicate pastel design.
Players already have hundreds of Asian-themed slot machines. With its pretty pretty designs and a couple of main features, Floating Dragon offers a fresh take on this ever-popular piece.
If you like re-spins, Play ‘n GO’s Fire Joker Freeze offers 2 re-spins features. Another option is Wild Chapo (from Relax Gaming), which gives you re-spins with sticky jokers.
