Dragon's Vault Slot Game Review
Dragon themed Video Slot games are some of the most popular around today, and it’s no surprise – people LOVE mystical creatures, whether they be Dragons from the Ancient Ages, or creep ghosts and supernatural occurrences.
Dragon's Vault is a new Video Slot from Aristocrat Gaming Technologies, and the game caters to players who enjoy that classic Dragon theme, alongside another common Video Slot theme – China, and the Orient.
While Dragon's Vault itself may not be the best-looking Video Slot we’ve seen from Aristocrat Gaming Technologies before, it’s simplistic and easy to play, and this makes it a good choice for players wanting a chilled out, relaxing, and hassle-free gaming experience.
Dragon's Vault is set up very uniquely, in the fact there are no pay lines. Yep – you heard that correctly – there are NO pay lines whatsoever!
Instead, Aristocrat Gaming Technologies have opted to use the “any-win-pays” approach, that basically means you just need one symbol on each reel in order to secure a win.
So, if you had a winning symbol on the top space of reel one, and two, it wouldn’t matter where the symbol was placed on the third reel.
As long as it lands, you win! This makes it a lot easier to get 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind payouts, and while the 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind payouts are a lot lower, due to the fact they’re much easier to get, if you manage to land two or more of the same symbol on multiple reels, you can end up getting paid 10…20… even 50 times 5-of-a-kind, which is why this setup is so popular today!
On the reels, you’ll see traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), and game specific icons, which all feature around the Chinese/Dragon theme. Again, like the overall design of the slot, the images aren’t too graphical, and are actually pretty basic, but it’s a nice change from the “in your face” approach many other Video Slot providers take, and gives you the chance to enjoy something a little different from the norm.
There’s no free-spins or bonus-round within Dragon's Vault, but don’t let that deter you – nice big wins can be found within the base-game, and if you can match up a few good symbols, and hit 4-of-a-kind or 5-of-a-kind payouts, you’ll walk away a lot richer!
Pros: Simple and easy to play – Dragon's Vault is great for new players, and those looking to relax.
Cons: A lack of bonus rounds will be a turn off for some players.
