Quickspin just don’t make ugly looking slot games and Dragon Chase is as easy on the senses as we’ve come to expect. Set against a backdrop of red skies, swirling clouds and a flying golden dragon, you’ll see the usual assortment of royal values and higher value golden objects that relate to the Chinese theme. No complaints here. What of the features? Well, there’s a decent amount of variety on offer.
Wildfire feature - this can strike at random on any spin in both the base game and the free spins round (more of which below). Between 1 and 5 wilds can appear at random on any reel. They then drop down the reels 1 position each time with each spin that follows. In theory you could see 10 wilds on the same spin which can deliver some spectacular results.
Free Spins Bonus feature - this bonus is triggered by landing the scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. You can then look forward to 10 free spins. Land scatters on reels 2 and 4 and 3 extra free spins are added to your total. You can expect to see more Wildfire symbols during the free spins. If any Wildfire wilds are on display when your free spins come to an end, they’re carried over to the base game.
Dragon Pearl Respin feature - landing 3 jackpot scatter symbols on the same spin will give you a shot at hitting 1 of the 4 potential jackpot prizes. You’ll then head to a new set of 15 independently spinning reels. These reels are made up of pearl symbols that come with coin values of between 0.5 and 7 times your stake attached.
A series of streak respins then follow. You’ll start with 3 of them but if you land a pearl scatter, the respins reset to 3. The round continues until you’re out of respins or you’ve filled the whole of the reels with scatters:
- Mini Jackpot is awarded if you land 4-7 Dragon Pearl symbols – it’s worth 8 times your stake
- Minor Jackpot is awarded if you land 8-11 Dragon Pearl symbols – it’s worth 28 times your stake
- Major Jackpot is awarded if you land 12-14 Dragon Pearl symbols – it’s worth 138 times your stake
- Grand Jackpot is awarded if you land 15 Dragon Pearl symbols – the jackpot is progressive!
Quickspin’s first jackpot slot game is an enjoyable one. The design is as classy as usual and there’s decent variety on offer from the extras. The biggest wins will come from the progressive jackpot but you can still win a cool 1,170.5 times your stake from each spin. If you enjoy the Chinese theme, then Dragon Chase is definitely one to consider. I would rather play other Quickspin titles though with Wolf Hunters and Hall of the Mountain King my picks.
