New Online Casino Game: Dragon and Phoenix from Betsoft
As Betsoft Gaming was still reeling from the popularity of its Take the Bank slot game release in November, the company then introduced Dragon & Phoenix.
Aussie online casino players have been anxiously awaiting the next game in the Red Dragon Series. That explains the many players accessing the game since its release on December 2.
Dragon & Phoenix Introduction
Betsoft knew how popular its Red Dragon Series of games had been with the first two parts, so the third was anxiously anticipated. After debuting Dragon & Phoenix at SiGMA (Summit of iGaming Malta) 2019 during the last few days of November, Betsoft executives knew it would be a hit.
Marketing Director Annamaria Anastasi said, “This content has been very well received by our players and clients due to its innovation, imagination and high quality. We are renowned for our ability to create and retain player engagement, and the huge payout potential of Dragon & Phoenix is already creating enormous excitement in the market.”
Dragon & Phoenix Basics
The game features the royal couple, both of whom are at the center of it all. They appear on a 5-reel game, complete with Asian themes, from the soundtrack to the bright colors and symbols.
Whether playing on the mobile or regular version, Dragon & Phoenix offers 20 paylines and an RTP (return-to-player) of 96.01%. It is considered a high-variance game.
The minimum bet is $0.20 per spin, and options then increase to $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, and $10.00. The max bet in the game is $20.00 per spin.
If playing at the very minimum, the symbols are then worth the following when hitting five on a payline:
- Blue dragon = $100.00
- Orange bird = $100.00
- Gold tin = $5.00
- Double 8 = $4.00
- Green dragon – $2.00
- Pagoda = $1.50
- Claw holding pearl = $0.80
- A = $0.80
- K, Q, J = $0.50 each
Dragon & Phoenix Features and Gameplay
The royal couple is wild, and the word “wild” is on the symbol. It can substitute for all symbols except the scatter. Royal couple wilds can also expand on reels two, three, four, and five to fit the entire reel.
The golden money tree symbol is the scatter and says so on it. Three or more scatters pay out per the following number of those symbols that appear on the board, playing at the minimum bet:
- Three scatters = $0.10
- Four = $0.20
- Five = $0.30
- Six = $0.50
- Seven = $0.70
- Eight = $1.00
- Nine = $1.50
- Ten = $2.00
- Eleven = $3.00
- Twelve = $4.00
- Thirteen = $5.00
- Fourteen = $7.50
- Fifteen = $10.00
After the scatters pay the win to the player, the scatter symbols leave the screen, and new symbols fall into their places. This allows another opportunity to win from the same spin.
In addition, three or more scatters award free spins; one free spin is awarded for every scatter symbol removed from the grid. Players can win up to 15 free spins.
Another feature of Dragon & Phoenix is the double-up game, something available in many Betsoft games. After any win, players can hit the Double Up button to gamble half or all of those winnings on the heads or tails of a coin flip.
Previous Release: Take the Bank
In November, Betsoft released Take the Bank, a fast-paced game with numerous features.
From robbers turning into wilds and Heist spins bringing the danger of a bomb explosion, there is a lot of action in the game.
The 5-reel slot with three rows offers 75 paylines. Bets range from $0.20 to a $20.00 max bet, and the RTP is 96.08%. The maximum that a player can win is 225x the total bet, which is $4,500 at the most.
Players just have to spin to make the bombs explode. This can happen every 10 spins and presents one of the best opportunities to score a big win. Not only does the Master Bomb Counter on the side of the reels track the spins, robber symbols combine to turn into bombs. Those transform into wilds after 10 spins. It is simpler than it sounds.
The police cars are the scatters, and the diamonds are the most lucrative of the regular symbols. There are also epic wilds and free spins, though, so there is no shortage of excitement.
