Dragon 8s is a Chartwell game. Chartwell appears to have closed down with the casinos offering their games standing alone with no further updates. Chartwell do not as standard release the house edge information of their games. However some of the casinos offering Chartwell games have started releasing this information. Doxx used to lists the house edge of Dragon 8s as 3, 6 or 10%. When playing at other venues this figure should be treated as a guideline only as the game may be configurable.
Dragon 8’s is set around the Chinese Dragon, so the symbols are all compromised of said dragons, coy carp, hand fans, lanterns and pandas.
This game is a 5 reel game, with 20 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins on each payline.
Dragon 8’s has only one bonus feature. When you hit three or more of the ‘Lantern’ bonus symbols anywhere on the reels you are taken to a new screen showing a selection of lanterns. You pick one and win a number of complimentary spins. That lantern then falls to the ground and you are taken to a new screen showing the coins that have fallen out of the broken lantern. You pick one and are awarded a multiplier for the duration of the complimentary spins.
The extra screens making a separate game out of selecting the number of complimentary spins and multiplier certainly add a new twist to the complimentary spins bonus feature, unfortunately it’s simply not enough to make Dragon 8’s worth searching out. There are undoubtedly far more interesting games available at any casino offering Dragon 8’s.
