Dragon Ship is a Viking themed adventure slot, brought to us by Play’n Go. It has 5 reels and 15 paylines, with bets starting at just 1p per payline. With some lucky landings, you can access Wilds, Sticky Wilds with free spins and even a pick and click bonus game which offers you some decent coin wins.
The reels are laid out aboard the Viking vessel with wild waves crashing in the sea behind. The wooden Viking boat where you play the game has dragon heads at the top of each side, not forgetting the huge one at the front of the ship. Here’s hoping you can ward off the evil spirits of the sea and welcome in some generous spins and wins!
Get Onboard the Boat
There are a total of 15 paylines in the Dragon Ship slot; however, it is up to you how many you wish to play. You can use the + and – buttons to either side of the Lines box to alter the number of paylines you play with.
You will notice a blue rectangle to the left-hand side of the boat. This determines your coin value, and you can change it between 1p and 20p per payline. Your bet will then be determined by the coins per the number of paylines you have in play.
To up the game a step further, you can increase the level of coins, adding extra weight to the current bet. This can be between 1 and 5 but bear in mind that an increase in bet level will also affect your total bet.
Your total bet is displayed underneath the bet lines box, so you can check you’re happy with it before you set sail.
In the main game, you will need to match three or more of the same symbols on an active payline to win. The highest payouts will come when you land the maximum of five-of-a-kind on a payline.
The most valuable symbol on the reels is our blonde-haired Viking friend wearing the classic horned helmet. Landing five of this fella on an active payline could pay out up to 2500 times your line bet!
Next is the big axe, golden with a shining silver edge. Dangerous to many, valuable to us. The maximum payout for five axes on a payline is 500 times your line bet.
The rounded silver-rimmed shield and the huge gold, silver and ivory horn are of the same value. Landing five-of-a-kind of one or the other on a payline could award you up to 250 times the line bet.
Our lower-value symbols are, as usual, the card values. The Ace and King both have maximum payouts of 150 times your line bet, and you could be looking at 100 times the line bet for five matching Queens, Jacks or Tens.
Boatloads of Bonuses
The Wild symbol in the Dragon Ship slot is the Dragon Ship itself. This symbol can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play, helping to build up more winning paylines. If you land a win with the Wild in, you will see more than just the dragon’s head. With its fiery eyes on a wild sea in the midst of a thunderstorm, you will also spot a Viking stood on the ship waving his axe upon the night sky.
If you manage to land two reels of stacked Wilds, you will trigger the free spins. Fifteen spins will be awarded to you.
Throughout these 15 spins, reels one and five will stay as stacked Wild symbols, showcasing the front and back of the fiery-eyed dragon symbol. These reels are held while the middle three reels will spin, so hopefully you will have some successful landings during these spins!
Golden treasure chests await you, but you will need to land three of them on the reels in one spin to trigger their feature.
If you are lucky enough to get three chests in a single spin, you will then be able to select a chest of your choice, and whatever is inside it, is yours! These prizes could be very decent coin wins to add to your winnings.
Gamble or Collect
In the main game, whenever you land a winning line, you will have the option to Gamble your winnings or Collect.
If you choose to collect them, you will return to the reels where you can carry on playing.
If you want to gamble, you will have to correctly guess either the colour or the suit of the card to be turned over. If you get it right, you can do it a few times, and in turn, multiply your winnings.
However, as soon as you get one wrong, you lose everything, so perhaps don’t do it on every win.
