Community Big Wins
As mentioned above there is unfortunately not much going on in East Sea Dragon King in terms of special features. Which is pretty unusual for a slot from NetEnt. What you will be seeing is the wild symbol which functions as normal, but is also an expanding wild. The wild is also the symbol that will trigger the re-triggering re-spins.
One of the two special features of the game is the Expanding Wild. The wild symbol is represented by the green Dragon King himself and is able to appear anywhere on the reels. As usual, the wild will be able to substitute all other symbols on the reels, both in the base game and during the re-spins feature.
Seeing that there is no scatter symbol in this slot, being an expanding wild, it will also be the one to trigger the bonus feature on the reels. The expanding wild will be activated once you land one or more dragon wilds anywhere on the reel set.
We must admit that we were very disappointed to see that there was no free spins feature in this slot, however, there is a re-spin feature. This feature will be triggered by the expanding wild. During this feature, the expanding wild will get locked in place while the slot will re-spin the remaining reels and symbols. Should you get any more wilds landing on the reel set during the re-spin, you will be rewarded with extra re-spins which will keep on going until you are out of wilds. Should you be so lucky to fill the reels completely with wilds, you can expect to collect some pretty good wins.
Design and Symbols
The East Sea Dragon King slot has been set deep in the ocean, where the reel set seems to be floating around in the water without any frame or lines dividing the reels from one another. In the background, you will simply be seeing the deep blue sea as far as the eye can see, with just some rays of sun shining through from the top and some plants growing at the bottom.
One thing we were happy to see in this slot was that there are no card suit symbols in use. All the symbols you will be seeing on the reels are in other words designed specifically to fit into the theme of the game. You will be seeing three different coins, in bronze, silver and gold which are worth x1 to x100 each. Other symbols in the game include the scroll, a pearl inside a shell, fortune cookies and a jade sculpture which is the symbol of the highest value. The jade sculpture is worth between x3 to x1 000 each.
To our surprise, there is no scatter symbol in this slot, just a wild symbol. The wild symbol of the game features who we suspect must be the East Sea Dragon King himself. What makes the wild symbol special is the fact that it is an expanding wild and can appear anywhere on the reels and will substitute all other symbols. It will also be the symbol to trigger the special feature of the slot, which is the Re-spin Feature.
Our Thoughts on East Sea Dragon King
We'll just come right out and say it right away, we aren't too impressed with this release from NetEnt. The possibilities were certainly there to make this slot great, but they haven't lived up to our expectations at all. We can see that this is a slot which definitely was directed more towards their market in Asia, but we cannot see how this slot is a good representation of what NetEnt has to offer. There simply isn't anything unique or out of the ordinary to catch out attention and keep us wanting more.
Of course, there is the cluster pays system that NetEnt is known for, a system that we, just like many others, like. But this is not enough to make East Sea Dragon King into a good slot. In fact, there really isn't anything in this slot that makes it any better, as both the graphics in the game as well as the lacking features are a big disappointment coming from a NetEnt slot. So unless you love all things NetEnt or simply like Asian-themed slots, this is highly unlikely to be a new favourite of yours.
