Dragon's Mirror: Slot Overview

After releasing games like Dragon's Fire, Dragon's Fire Megaways, Mega Dragon, Dragon's Luck Deluxe, Dragon's Luck Megaways, and now Dragon's Mirror, it's pretty safe to suppose developer Red Tiger has a soft spot for the scaly, fire breathing mythical beasts. Quite why this is so is anyone's guess, but dragons do make for good visuals, and they have cross-cultural appeal. Dragon-philes are spoiled in Dragon's Mirror, too, for this game does not just host one type of wyvern. Instead, Dragon's Mirror charts dragons' progress from egg to adult, tying in a Dragon Progress feature, five different wild symbols, some with win multipliers, one with a mirroring ability, and a round of free spins.

With all the dragon slot development under its belt already, Red Tiger shows it is capable of crafting a handsome game. Dragon's Mirror is held in a fantasy world of floating towers hovering on rocks above a wooded valley, with a mountainous, cloud-covered region in the background. It's all a very Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and Avatar mix, meaning players who go weak at the knees at fantasy may be intrigued. Dragon's Mirror is a game that potentially gets better as more features are unlocked, too, so hopefully, the dragon inhabitants generously pop their egg wilds on the reels a whole lot.

On the subject of reels, Dragon's Mirror's gaming area utilises 5 reels, each one holding 3 rows and covered in 25 fixed paylines. All symbols pay left to right from the leftmost side of the grid on adjacent reels. Behind the scales lies a fire breathing highly volatile math model, generating a return to player figure of 96%. There are no bonus buys, or extra betting options, so the only decision users must make is how much to stake, from 10 p/c to $/€10 per spin.

Appearing on the paytable are 10 regular paying symbols. They consist of 10 to A card ranks on the lower side, worth 3.2 to 4 times the bet for a 5-of-a-kind winning line, while a scroll, a book, a ring, a farmer, and a wizard make up the high pays, awarding 6 to 16 times the bet for a 5 OAK hit. Regular wilds are known as Dragon Egg Wilds and appear on all reels. Dragon Egg Wilds substitute for any pay symbols and are worth a payout of up to 40x when creating wild wins.

Dragon's Mirror: Slot Features

Dragon's Mirror is one of those Red Tiger games that develop as certain symbols hit and get collected, in this case, wilds. As well as the Dragon Progress feature, there are 5 types of wild symbols and a free spins bonus round.

Dragon Progress

The bar above the reels indicates the players' progress through 4 levels. Landing certain Dragon Wilds on each level fills the progress bar, and completing a level adds a new type of Dragon Wild to the reels:

  • Level 1 – landing 60 Dragon Egg Wilds completes this level. Baby Dragon Wilds are added when complete.
  • Level 2 – landing 18 Baby Dragon Wilds completes this level. Young Dragon Wilds are added when complete.
  • Level 3 – landing 10 Young Dragon Wilds completes this level. Dragon Queen Wilds are added when complete.
  • Level 4 – landing 2 Dragon Queen Wilds completes this level. Dragon King Wilds are added when complete.

Dragon Wilds

All wilds, no matter the type, substitute for all paying symbols, helping to create winning lines. Baby Dragon and Dragon Queen Wilds have multipliers which are applied to all wins these wilds are part of. If more than one win multiplier is part of a single win, their multipliers are multiplied.

  • Baby Dragon – these wilds land on reels 2 and 4 with an x3 win multiplier.
  • Young Dragon – expanding wilds that expand over the whole reel if they can form part of a win by doing so. Young Dragons appear on reels 2, 3, and 4.
  • Dragon Queen – an expanding wild symbol with an x3 win multiplier. It appears on the middle reel only and expands to cover the whole reel if, by doing so, it will be part of a win.
  • Dragon King – this is an expanding wild that lands on the middle reel only. It covers the whole reels, and it copies the symbols from reel 1 to reel 5, and the symbols from reel 2 are copied to reel 4.

Free Spins

Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on a spin awards 5, 8, or 12 free spins, respectively. Only 1 scatter may land per reel. During free spins, scatters cannot land on the middle reel. All Dragon Wilds are present in free spins at all progress levels. In addition, either Young Dragon, Dragon Queen, or Dragon King will land on the middle reel on each free spin.

Dragon's Mirror: Slot Verdict

Dragon's Mirror wasn't without its charm, but it arguably isn't Red Tiger's best dragon game either. Red Tiger does like making slots that task players with collecting certain objects in order to unlock higher-tier features. So, combining this favoured mechanic with the favoured topic of dragons means there must be one or two gleeful game designers rejoicing at the Red Tiger workshop. Players who enjoy the challenge these sorts of games provide, as well as mythical beasts, may be rejoicing as well. After a playthrough, though, it's hard to envisage general players who might not be so smitten with progressive requirements or the theme being so enthralled by Dragon's Mirror. However, having a wide variety of wild symbols doing different things might be a draw.

One of the biggest potential frustrations is not having all of the goodies laid out at the start. Rather, you have to battle your way to them, or just play the game patiently. It didn't take ludicrous amounts of time to smash all the way to the Dragon King, though, which is a wild symbol that can end up going either way. It can be disappointing when symbols on reels 1 and 2 are such that when they are copied, they don't really link much, but pretty thrilling when they do mirror into something decent, like having a multiplier wild on reel 2, for example. However, after pounding through the cycle, triggering free spins bonus rounds, there wasn't a major desire to play on to see any more dragons for a while.

One aspect that may (or may not) keep players engaged by Dragon's Mirror is its winning potential of 3,873x the bet. Let's finish up by saying there may well be punters quaking at the thought of meeting Dragon's Mirror's characters and taking on its progressive challenge, but outside the seemingly narrow focus group, the game might struggle to appeal.
