Dragon Emperor – Online Slot with Reel Shuffle Feature
Dragon Emperor is a 5-reel, 243 ways-to-win online slot developed by Aristocrat. Deployed to online casinos by NextGen Gaming via the NYX OGS platform, this Asian-themed online gambling content offers an innovative Reel Shuffle Feature. The reels shift positions instead of launching a respin, but for the same purpose of creating new outcomes with a single triggering spin.
Dragon Emperor Online Slot – Dragon Wild Symbol and Reel Shuffle Feature
The image of a dragon's head corresponds to the Wild Symbol of the game. Configured as 3-tile high Stacked Wild Symbols that emerge only in Reel 5, a full-reel display of the Dragon Wild Stacked Symbols triggers the activation of the Reel Shuffle Feature.
The Reel Shuffle Feature– Once this special game attribute sets off, all reels including the column that contains the Stacked Dragon Wilds, shifts into random positions. The Stacked Dragon Wild Symbols may now appear anywhere across the reels, whilst still posing as suitable alternate icon to complete consecutively appearing matched-symbol groupings.
Once the shuffling action ceases, the new reel positions will be evaluated for additional winning combinations. Any monetary rewards gained from the results of the shuffled reels, will then be added to payouts gained from the original outcome of the triggering spin.
It is possible for the Stacked Dragon Wild Symbols to revert, or remain in its original Reel 5 position after the shuffling action. If it does, then the Reel Shuffle Feature is retriggered. Moreover, the new reel arrangements may also produce an outcome in which three (3) Bonus Game Symbols appear consecutively. The occurrence triggers the Dragon Emperor Free-Spins Round.
Dragon Emperor Online Slot Bonus Game Symbol
An icon labeled with Chinese Characters for Dragon represents the Bonus Game Symbol. Three (3), four (4), or five (5) Dragon Chinese Characters activate 7, 10, or up to 15 free spins correspondingly. Although a special game element, this special icon is not a Scatter Symbol. This denotes that in order to activate the free games, the groupings of matched Dragon Chinese Characters must originate from the leftmost (Reel 1), as well appear next to each other.
That being the case, the Dragon Symbol pays 2, 10, or 40 coins as pay-way win for the Bonus Symbol matched groupings.
Dragon Emperor Online Slot – Free-Spins Round
During the free round, the Reel Shuffle Feature may occur more frequently. As the Dragon Emperor Game Info states that, an Extra set of Stacked Dragon Wild Symbols will be added to Reel 5.
The icons with Dragon Chinese Characters stay active during the free round. This denotes that another set of bonus spins may be retriggered. The number of additional bonus spins still depend on the number of Dragon Chinese Characters that retriggered the bonus game.
