We know what you are thinking. Yet another Asian dragon-themed slot? Even though Dragon Chase definitely carries some resemblance to previously releasing a slot with the same theme, there is one clear difference this time around. Quickspin has put some hard work into the design, but not only that, but this is also the very first slot from Quickspin to offer a progressive jackpot.
Dragon Chase was released in June 2019 and it is played on a 5x3 reel set along with 20 active lines you can place your bets on. You can play on Dragon Chase starting from as low as 0.20 and up to 100 credits per spin. The RTP is 96.39% which is pretty good seeing this is a progressive jackpot slot, while the volatility is medium to high. Aside from the jackpots in the game, wins can go up to 1 170.5x your total bet.
Features in the game include re-spins, a free spins feature and of course the 3 fixed jackpots as well as the progressive jackpot.
Design and Symbols
Dragon Chase has been set up in the clouds surrounded by a golden sunset where you can spot fireflies buzzing around. On the side of the reels, you will spot a huge golden dragon holding on and all of this sets the perfect mood for Dragon Chase. The dragon will even be spewing fireballs which are the slots wild symbols onto the reels, which will then move down one position per spin.
Seeing that this is a slot that is Asian themed, you can expect to see golden figures inspired by oriental mythology. The standard card suit symbols are also in place along with 5 higher value symbols which include the slots wild. Amongst the higher value symbols, you will see dragons, lucky coins, golden bowls, frogs and lion statues.
To get a winning spin you will have to land between 3 and 5 matching symbols on one of the paylines. While the low paying symbols pay between 2x and 3x your bet, the higher paying symbols will pay up to 50x your bet for 5 on a payline. The game has 4 special symbols, which consist of Dragon Pearl, Wild, Bonus Scatter Symbol and the Jackpot Scatter. The Dragon Pearl can appear on any reel and will trigger the Dragon Pearl Respin feature. The Bonus Scatter Symbol is the one to activate the free spins feature, which will happen when 3 of them land on the reels 2, 3 and 4. The Flaming Ball is the slots wild symbol and works as the standard substitute.
As you might have noticed there is quite a bit going on in this slot to keep you entertained. As well as the four different special symbols, you will find a respin feature, a free spin feature and a total of four jackpots you get to play for. One of them, of course, being the slots progressive jackpot.
To trigger the free spins feature you will need to get three of the bonus scatters on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 spins. In addition to the first 10 spins, you will receive 3 new spins for every 2 additional scatters that appear during the feature. At the same time, Wildfire wilds will also be added to the reels.
The Wildfire feature will be randomly triggered, something that can only happen during the main game. This is a falling wild feature where the symbols will be moving down one position for every spin. You can have up to 10 visible should the feature be triggered again and you can receive up to 5 at the same time.
Dragon Pearl Respin
Should you get 3 or more of the Dragon Pearl symbols or Jackpot scatters, you will have triggered the feature which will then award you with 3 spins. If more Dragon Pearl symbols land on the reels, they will be held in place with the number of spins then being set back to 3. This feature will keep on going until there are no spins remaining or you have collected 15 Dragon Pearl symbols.
Being the very first slot from Quickspin to offer a progressive jackpot, the expectations are definitely high. The values of all 4 jackpots are set above the reels. The amount of Dragon Pearl symbols that have been collected will be displayed in the Jackpot Meters.
The 4 different jackpots are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand. The jackpot you win will depend on how many Dragon Pearl symbols you are able to collect. For between 4 and 7, you will win the Mini, between 8 and 11 will get you the Minor, 12 to 14 symbols wins you the Major while the Grand jackpot will be won with 15 symbols.
Our Thoughts on Dragon Chase
Dragon Chase is a pretty good looking slot with a fun oriental theme if that is what you are looking for. There are quite a few special features that make sure the slot is entertaining with some surprises here and there. However, there isn't much potential outside of the Grand jackpot, unfortunately.
The fixed prizes in the 3 non-progressive jackpots only amount to being pretty average-sized. Of course, should you be one of the lucky ones claiming the grand prize, there will certainly be nothing to complain about. With medium variance and an RTP of 96.39%, overall Dragon Chase is a good slot from Quickspin.
