Created by prom popular online slots software developers, Genesis Gaming, the Phoenix and the Dragon slot taps into the well-loved oriental theme. This five-reel 25-payline slot should appeal to players of all types as wagers per spin range from just 0.01 credits all the way up to 100.00 credits and paylines are adjustable.
Simple Arcade-Style Graphics and Sound
In an unusual move away from the bold and bright colours and graphics typically associated with online video slots, Genesis has toned things down with watercolour graphics in the Phoenix and the Dragon slot. This tranquil colour-scheme is livened up by the kind of arcade-like soundtrack you’d expect from first-person martial arts games.
The number of symbols included in the Phoenix and the Dragon slot is notably limited and includes, of course, both the phoenix and the dragon, two Chinese characters, a yin-yang, and the usual high-value playing card symbols. The phoenix and the dragon are the two most valuable symbols in the Phoenix and the Dragon slot – the 500-coin jackpot pays out for five of either kind.
Phoenix and the Dragon Slot Scatter Symbol
In the Phoenix and the Dragon slot, the scatter symbol is easily identifiable as the game’s logo. As the scatter symbol, the Phoenix and the Dragon slot logo pays out regardless of where it appears on the reels, as long as two or more are landed in a spin, which is the case with many slots NZ and other regions have to offer.
Phoenix and the Dragon Bonus Features
There are two bonus features in the Phoenix and the Dragon slot and these are triggered whenever either a dragon or a phoenix lands on Reel 1 and on Reel 5 simultaneously. The phoenix and the dragon will then go to battle and players must select a winner. Depending on which fiery beast is selected and which one wins the battle, a different bonus feature is activated:
Phoenix Free Spins Bonus
If you select the phoenix and it does win, you will receive eight free spins. If you did not pick the phoenix to win, you will only receive four free spins. Phoenix and the Dragon slot free spins can be rather lucrative as up to three reels may turn completely wild. You can also retrigger free spins during these rounds.
Dragon Cloud Bonus
The other possibility is that the dragon wins the battle. If this happens and you picked him to win, you will be allowed to choose from a number of clouds to reveal various prizes, each with a 2x multiplier. If the dragon wins and you picked the phoenix, the multiplier will be removed but you will still be able to keep selecting prizes until a cloud reveals the word “collect”.
Yin-Yan Phoenix-Dragon Wild
There is a yin-yang-like symbol in the Phoenix and the Dragon slot wherein the traditional black and white halves are replaced with a phoenix and a dragon on either side. This is the Phoenix and the Dragon slot wild symbol and can stand in for any other symbol except the scatter to complete winning payline combinations.
