Jewel of the Dragon
Jewel of the Dragon Bally Slot
Jewel of the Dragon is a Bally game that you may not have encountered before. It doesn’t necessarily rank among the company’s most played slot games of all time, but there’s certainly so shortage of excitement on these particular reels either. It’s a fun looking game but, as with many Bally titles, the focus is more firmly placed on the features and extras than the looks, all backed up by some typically excellent base gameplay. In this particular case that comprises forty win lines and just about every type of coin bet imaginable and the more you stake, the more each of the various symbols are worth.
Hot Zone Wilds
Jewel of the Dragon shares something in common with another great Bally game – that being Sumo Kitty and it comes in the form of Hot Zones. These Tetris style shapes can fall onto the board during any spin within the base game and they’re well worth aiming for. That’s because every symbol area that falls within the shape will see any symbol that lands turning instantly into a wild card, regardless of what it was before. We’re particularly partial to the squares and rectangles as they can often represent a win in their own right, but every shape can certainly be helpful in its own way.
Players can also make use of Dragon Nudges to bring their Hot Zones onto the board more regularly. If a Hot Zone lands outside the board but still in view, the Dragon Nudge will see it being brought into play in full, with prizes being paid accordingly.
Jewel of the Dragon takes the Hot Zone concept a stage further than Sumo Kitty by also including Drop Zones. Some symbols on the second, third and fourth reels include a small diamond on them and landing three such symbols in view will trigger the Drop Zone. This is essentially a second Hot Zone which will immediately drop into view. Again, all symbols within the shape will turn wild and any new wins will be calculated independently and added to your balance.
Jewel of the Dragon Free Spins
The Hot Zones and variants may make for plenty of great action on the game already but the fun doesn’t end there as this game also includes a free spins bonus game. Three or more dragon scatters anywhere in view will trigger the round but landing even more is definitely better as it ups the instant cash prize. Fortunately, the number of spins remains the same no matter how many scatters apply, with eight spins on offer. While the spins cannot be retriggered within the round, any Hot Zones that land during free spins will see their wild symbols freezing in place and remaining there for the rest of the round.
If you like your gaming action to come thick and fast then you could do a lot worse than Jewel of the Dragon and it’s one of our favourite Bally games. The Hot Zone feature is something that needs to be seen to be believed in its own right, so check out those, the free spins and everything else that makes this game great right here at Games Mania!
