The design here is pretty good for a Novomatic-powered slot game. The reels feature lower value A to 9 symbols plus a pink fly and a trio of dragons. The best of the 3 is the purple dragon – land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline and you’ll pocket an award of 1.2, 8 or 32 times your total stake.
Appearing on reels 2 and 4, the black and white yin and yang symbol is the game’s wild. It doesn’t offer any payouts but it can boost your awards when it forms part of a winning combination with a standard symbol. 1 wild delivers a 2x multiplier – land a winner that includes 2 wilds and the payout is quadrupled.
Little Dragons also comes with a Free Games feature – it’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the gold ingot scatter left to right on the same spin. As well as a payout equal to 5, 10 and 50 times your total stake, you’ll also receive 15, 20 or 25 free spins.
The yin and yang wilds can really come into their own once you trigger the feature. Any winning combination that includes a wild will receive a 3x, 4x or 5x boost. Land 2 wilds in the same winner during the free spins and the payout rockets by 9x, 16x or even 25x! You can also retrigger the feature to give you up to 50 free spins in total.
With the size of those potential wild multipliers, you won’t be surprised to hear that Little Dragons is a very volatile game. The variance here is very high and you can expect some big swings to your bankroll. Saying that, there’s 5,000 times your stake to be won on each free spin with a 25x multiplier.
Little Dragons is a typical Novomatic slot game. The cutesy design might be a little OTT for some tastes but it’s nicely done. The gameplay is simple but has the potential to pack a big punch thanks to the super high volatility.
The theme certainly won’t be to everyone’s taste but if you want straightforward play and high variance then Little Dragons offers just that. If you like the dragon theme, Dragon’s Deep by Novomatic and Double Dragons by Yggdrasil Gaming are worth playing.
