The Dragon Emperor rises…
Dragon Emperor is a 5 reel game that does not use standard paylines. Instead any 3 or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the screen constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Dragon Emperor’ symbol is Wild and only appears on reel 5.
There are two bonus features when playing Dragon Emperor. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Chinese Writing’ bonus symbol on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be awarded between 7 and 15 complimentary spins depending on the number of Chinese Writing bonus symbols you received. During the complimentary spins extra Dragon Emperor Wild symbols appear on reel 5. Complimentary spins are played on an alternative set of reels and can be retriggered.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the Dragon Emperor Wild symbol on reel 5. When this happens you will be paid, then all of the reels will be shuffled into new positions and the winning combinations will be reassessed.
In all fairness, the reel shuffle feature found when playing Dragon Emperor is unusual if not unique, but this game still lacks anything to make it really pop and there are many better games available with lower House Edges.
