Dragons and Chinese-themed slots go together like bread and butter. It’s a match made in heaven and you’d be hard pressed to find an Oriental-themed game that doesn’t include them. With the sudden surge of popularity of Chinese-themed releases, every developer rushed to make their own version.
Triple Dragons is a little too red and gold for our liking, but it avoids the fate of being stereotypical. Instead, its flaws are less about the graphics and more about gameplay or the lack thereof.
We admit, classic slots usually aren’t our cup of tea. We like having plenty of special features and massive jackpots that would make anyone’s head spin if they won them. And 3-reel games like this one usually fail to deliver on our wants. Sadly, this applies to this Pragmatic Play release, too. It offers just one bonus, and a jackpot worth 1,000x your total stake.
Triple Dragons is played on a 3-reel, 3-row layout with 5 fixed paylines. By changing their coins per line and coin value, players are able to adjust their total bet! You can stake between $0.05 and $50 per spin. The maximum bet was actually a lot higher than we thought and it will please many high rollers!
To start playing, tap the large Spin button shaped like the Pragmatic Play logo. If you’re feeling lazy, you can also make use of the Autoplay function. It could take you a minute or three to set everything to your liking. But once it’s done, all you have to do is lean back, and collect any wins that come your way!
Available symbols are split between playing card icons and Chinese themed symbols. This is probably the only slot where you’ll find spades and hearts sharing the same space with dragons and coin pouches!
You don’t get any of the icons as either Wilds or Scatters. Instead, the green dragon will become both Wild and more valuable under the right circumstances! And what are those circumstances? We’re glad you asked!
When one or two fully stacked green dragons appear on any reel, they transform into Wilds. This triggers the ‘Respin until you Win’ bonus. As the name implies, the playing field will continue spinning over and over until a winning combination is finally formed. All stacked Wilds are sticky and will remain in position until a win finally goes through.
Triple Dragons has high volatility and an RTP of 96.51%. We’re not big fans of the graphics. We find the oriental theme done to death, and this Pragmatic Play release doesn’t offer anything new on that front. And while we like the bonus, it’s also the only special feature available. Our final verdict for this slot can be summed up in just one word: average.
