New iSoftBet Casino Game: Dragon Match Megaways
It has been a busy year for iSoftBet, and it’s not even half over. The recent surge in online casino game popularity has increased the public demand for new slot games, and iSoftBet has not disappointed.
Most recently, iSoftBet released Euphoria, a relaxing slot game with high volatility and very unique features. Fans of online slots might also remember that iSoftBet released a game called Dragon Stone last year. The main character may be the same, but the new Dragon Match Megaways slot game released just last week is miles ahead in terms of payouts and features.
Into a Chinese Temple
Through a quiet forest draped with fog, and against the backdrop of tall stone mountains and birds flying through the air, a dragon breathes his mighty fire. The image of the golden temple and dragon figures around the grid and on the symbols is a stark contrast to the serene background. That is part of the draw of the game, as is its golds, blues, and oranges at the forefront are softened by the tranquility of the scene behind them.
The music contains the same type of contrast. A calming tune from the zither is punctuated by gongs and the noises of the reels and symbols…and the dragon’s fire.
Dragon Match’s stunning visuals draw players in, and the paylines and features keep them playing.
iSoftBet Head of Games Mark Claxton noted the popularity of the Megaways mechanic in Dragon Match and the unique four-reel layout. And this latest release adds to the excitement of the ever-growing iSoftBet library of games. Claxton said its rapid growth “is testament to the great work of our development teams, as we continue to create fantastic gaming experiences for players of all tastes.”
Dragon Match Overview and Payouts
This latest iSoftBet offering shows four reels and five rows to start, though the rows can expand up to eight on any reel at any given time. These changes are random.
Using Big Time Gaming’s base, Dragon Match offers a 95.99% RTP (return-to-player). It is a game with high volatility.
The number of paylines ranges from relatively low numbers up to 3,136. To determine the number of paylines on a spin, multiply the number of adjacent winning symbols on each reel…or look at the Megaways counter to the left of the grid.
The minimum bet is a coin value of $0.01, making that bet equal to $0.20. The values then increase to $0.02 ($0.40 bet), $0.05 ($1 bet), $0.10 ($2 bet), $0.20 ($4 bet), $0.30 ($6 bet), $0.50 ($10 bet), and the max of $1 ($20 bet). It is not a game for high-stakes players, but Dragon Match is ideal for low-stakes and medium-stakes players.
Playing at the minimum bet of $0.20 per spin, the payouts for four symbols on a payline are as follows:
- Golden dragon on green background = $4.00
- Golden accessories = $1.00
- Purple lotus flower = $0.80
- Blue instrument = $0.60
- Green drum = $0.50
- Purple A = $0.40
- Orange K = $0.30
- Yellow Q = $0.20
- Blue J = $0.10
- Red 10 = $0.10
Dragon Match Features and Gameplay
Every winning symbol becomes a part of the cascading reaction, and it is then replaced by a new symbol that falls into its place.
The Wild symbol is the angry dragon head with the word “WILD” on it – hard to miss it. This substitutes for all symbols except the Dragon Match Bonus.
It is also possible for the top reel (the one with two symbols in it) to show matching symbols. In that case, they turn wild, as do all of those same symbols on the two reels below them. The dragons breathe fire on the reels and make the magic happen.
The Dragon Match Bonus symbols are literally two halves of the dragon that must be put together on the top reel to trigger Free Spins. The player then chooses from these options for their bonus round:
- 12 spins with 1x starting multiplier
- 8 spins with 3x starting multiplier
- 5 spins with 5x starting multiplier
- Random choice = can be 5-12 spins with 1x-5x multipliers
Speaking of the multipliers, their growth is unlimited during the Free Spins. The multiplier increases by 1x after each cascading win. That new multiplier will then apply to the next Free Spins win, no matter when it happens during that bonus round session.
During the Free Spins, two of the Dragon Match Bonus symbols in the top reel will award another five free spins to the current tally.
