Water Dragons is a slots game with a Japanese theme of fish and ponds and the Water Dragon. The background and the symbols carry out this slightly different kind of Oriental theme, and the background music is also combined with the sound of running water. The game of Water Dragons is based on the old Asian legend of a Koi Carp climbing a waterfall on the Yellow River, and then turning into a Dragon.
This is a game brought out by International Game Technology, one of the best known and best regarded of the casinos games developers. It has five reels and 30 pay lines, and was originally a game found in live casinos, but was developed in 2013 for play on any laptop or mobile device.
Very Well Executed Graphics
The graphics and symbols are beautifully drawn, and the symbols are what the player will expect to see in this game. There are Pond Plants, Koi Fish, Water Lilies, Dragonflies, Pearls and Bonsai Trees. The Water Dragon Logo is also present. The two main symbols to watch out for are the Pearls and the Water Dragons. The Water Dragon Logo is the Wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols on the reels, apart from the Pearl which is the Scatter symbol. The Pearl Scatter is the key to the Free Spins bonus feature. Additional Wilds will be added to the reels during the play of the Free Spins round, which can make play in Water Dragons even more rewarding.
Free Spins Round can be a Bonus
The Water Dragons Logo Wild appears on all the reels except reel 1. The Pearl Scatters however, can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and if the player hits three of the Pearls together anywhere on those reels, he will trigger the Free Spins round, and will be awarded fifteen free spins. The player will also be given the pay for the Scatters that multiplies the total stake by three times. If a Pearl Scatter comes to light in any position on reel 5, one Pearl will appear next to the Koi Fish symbol at the bottom of the screen. Pearl Scatters will fill in from left to right. When three Pearl Scatters are filled in next to the Koi Fish symbol, the Koi Fish symbol will become Wild.
Scatter Symbols Too
For every set of three Pearl Scatters the player gets, and additional Koi Fish symbol will become a Wild. All four of the Koi Fish, which appear only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, can be turned into Wilds. Three Pearls make the Red Koi Fish symbol Wild, and six Pearls make the spotted Koi Fish wild. Nine Pearls will make the Gold Koi Fish turn Wild, and twelve Pearls will turn the Blue Koi Fish symbol Wild.
Free Spins are played on the same pay lines and at the same bet per line as the triggering spin. The Free Spins bonus round can be reactivated to a maximum number of 225 Free Spins. The Free Spins round in Water Dragons comes to an end when the player has reached the maximum award, or has no more free spins remaining.
The winning combinations in Water Dragons come up fairly regularly, and the wide range of coin value options make this game by IGT a satisfying slots game for players to enjoy online.
