3888 Ways of the Dragon is a 5 reel slots game, with the first reel 3 symbols high and all the others 6 symbols high. The game does not use traditional paylines. Instead there are 3888 winways, which are awarded from left to right for adjacent symbol combinations.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Dragon”, which can substitute for all symbols other than the Bonus symbol.
Bonus - Three or four Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger either 8 or 18 Free Spins respectively. The Bonus symbol can only land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and only 1 per reel.
During both normal spins and Free Spins, Dragon Spins can be randomly triggered, at which point the Dragon will swoop over the reels and drop between 3 and 8 Wild symbols in random positions on the reels. Dragon Spins are more frequent during Free Spins.
Free Spins – 3 Bonus symbols will award you 8 Free Spins and 4 will award you 18 Free Spins. During the Free Spins Dragon Spins are more active than in the base game.
3888 Ways of the Dragon is all about that unique number of waywins and the unique reel composition that is needed to allow them to occur. The Chinese Dragon theme is tried and tested and 3888 Ways of the Dragon does a decent job of holding its own amongst the huge volume of other Dragon themed games out there. What lets this game down is not the visual experience but the lack of features that comes with it. You have wilds and free spins, plus a random Dragon Spin feature but other than that there is not a huge amount going on in this game. With a house edge just tipping over the 4% all we really have to recommend are the 3888 winways, the interesting looking grid formation and an RTP that is still a little lower than we would want to see.
