Aww…such cute Little Dragons
243 ways with up to x25 multiplier in the bonus
High volatility with 5000x win potential
Little Dragons Introduction
Little Dragons is something as unusual as a 243 ways slot (win all ways) from Novomatic. It’s good to see this classic slot producer becoming a bit more active again and hopefully we will see them focus a bit more on the online market than they have done in the past.
This is quite a straight-forward and simple slot as Novos usually tend to be. It’s delivered with a 5-reels, 3-rows setup with 243 ways to win and a bet size ranging from €0.25 to €100. The 95.05% RTP is standard for Novomatics, but just on the border of what’s acceptable.
Little Dragons has an Asian inspired theme set against a backdrop with blue skies and cherry blossoms. It centers around cute little cartoon dragons and more importantly, the Yin-Yang symbol.
Little Dragons Symbols & Paytable
Symbols on the reels include the standard playing card symbols and 4 high-value symbols represented by dragonflies, green dragons, orange dragons and pink dragons, the latter one being the most valuable giving you 32 times the stake for 5 on a payline.
There is a Yin-Yang symbol as well that only appears on reels 2 and 4 in both the main game and in the free spins. This symbol can take on 3 forms – wild, scatter and multiplier. Landing 1 Yin-Yang symbol in the main game multiplies wins x2, while 2 of them multiplies wins x4. This means that you can land a 500x+ win in the main game with 5 of a kind top symbol + 2 wilds.
Little Dragons Free Spins
Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols from left to right (you can’t trigger a bonus by landing scatters on reels 1, 4 and 5 for example) gives you 15, 20 or 25 free spin respectively.
In the free spins game, the Yin-Yang symbol becomes even more valuable and can reach up to a x25 multiplier. We don’t know the exact setup of the reel strips or if it’s possible to land 5 of a kind with 2 different premium symbols in one spin, but 5 of the top symbol together with 2 Yin-Yang wild x5 + x5 multipliers (x25) yields a 3200x win, so there is definitely some potential to this game.
Although there is some re-trigger potential here, it doesn’t appear to happen nearly as often as on other more classic Novomatic slots.
Little Dragons Conclusion
This is a fun game with decent potential. Like all Novomatic slots it should be approached with some caution, however. It plays fast, it has a relatively low RTP, and you’re much more likely to rip your balance in the blink of an eye than to hit something massive. But then again, that’s the nature of the beast playing Novos. It’s either on or off, nothing in between.
