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, but like all Novomatic slots it should be approached with some caution. It plays fast, it has a relatively low RTP, and unless you trigger a bonus you’re pretty much s*** out of luck. But then again, that’s the nature of the beast playing Novos. It’s either on or off, nothing in between.
