Gold Dragon Red Dragon

This new video slot applies two of the most popular AGS game features in “Fierce Factor” and “PowerXStream.” Fierce Factor is a feature that raises the pays with higher bets—the pay-table amounts rise with the wager. PowerXStream is a scatter-pay reel setup with four spots on each of the inner three reels and three spots on each of the outer reels.

The reel setup results in 576 possible winning combinations on each spin. Wins are registered through adjacent symbols; there are no paylines.

This game is based on the popular White Buffalo AGS theme, but with higher volatility. Wins in the primary game are evaluated both left-to-right and right-to-left starting with the outer reels, and each symbol combination has a base pay value that is multiplied by the number of instances of that symbol in the winning combination.

For instance, one Gold Dragon symbol on each of three reels pays 30 credits, but a Gold Dragon symbol on the first reel, two on the second and three on the third returns 180 credits.

The primary game also features “Streaming Stacks.” Each spin, a random symbol per reel is selected to appear in a stack. When a full stack of high-paying or wild symbols appears on the middle reels, special animation heralds the higher payout.

Bonus symbols scattered on the inner reels trigger eight free spins, but the bonus symbols appear very frequently in the free spins as well, up to a possible maximum of 128 free games.
