Enter the dragon’s lair where riches await. At least that’s what we’re hoping for with this fire breather-themed slot from Quickspin. It certainly seems promising with an RTP of 96.39% and a maximum payout of 1,170 x your bet.

The most exciting part is that it comes with a built in progressive jackpot, giving players repeated chances at winnings beyond the usual. But nothing’s ever as glorious as it seems, right? Not even a mystical dragon carved from gold. So sit back, relax and let’s see where this adventure leads. Fortune cookie anyone?

  • The slot features three jackpots plus a progressive jackpot
  • The special features are easy to trigger
  • There’s a consistent boost with every spin thanks to the golden dragon fireball wilds
  • The Free Spins Bonus is a little underwhelming in terms of reward
  • The payouts are quite low, even during special features
  • Getting to the progressive jackpot will require a lot of luck

Dragon's Chase - Theme and Background

Dragon Chase’s reels are presided over by a golden fire-breathing dragon, who consistently blows fire rings across the reels. There’s a reason for this but we’ll get into that a little further on in this review. Aside from the regal dragon curled around the grid, there’s little else to occupy you visually.

The backdrop features rich red and gold colors that we’ve come to associate with Chinese culture, and below are curling clouds, giving the feeling that the reels are floating in the heavens. The symbols include the usual low value A, K, Q, J, and 10 designed to look vaguely oriental.

Across the grid are a selection of symbols representing items from Chinese culture such as golden lions and frogs, a blue pearl, gold medallions, a wildfire Wild, the jackpot dragon pearl, and the bonus scatter symbol of a golden gong. The soundtrack is better than I expected, doing away with tinny, clanging noises in favor of a less cliched take on Chinese music. In short, everything looks sufficiently Chinese, without going totally over the top as many other slots do.

Dragon Chase - Gameplay

We mention above that Dragon Chase features a progressive jackpot, but that’s not the only feature to get excited about. Here’s a little more about what this slot offers inside and outside of the base game.

Dragon Chase Golden dragon symbol

The Golden Dragon

The focal point of this slot’s design is the imposing golden dragon curled around the reels. During the base game this big guy will frequently uncoil himself to roar out fireballs across the reels.

The number is random (going up to 5), but each one will land on a symbol and transform it into a wild. Once the symbol turns wild, it will remain in place, moving down one position with each spin until it disappears from view.

Dragon Pearl Respin

I liked this feature because it almost guarantees a tidy payout ranging from small to large. All you have to do is land 3 jackpot symbols on the reels and you’re all set to try your luck. The grid will transform into a blank 3 x 5 setup and the aim is to fill the spaces with as many Dragon Pearl symbols as possible, beginning with 3 respins. Once the symbols land they become sticky, and your respins get reset to 3. The feature will end when you run out of respins or if you fill all 15 spaces with Dragon Pearls (that’s the dream).

So what about the payout? Well, each Dragon Pearl you land gives you a cash win up to 7x your bet and, on top of this, the number you end with will determine which jackpot you take home (the mini, minor, major, or grand). You’ll need at least 4 symbols to qualify at all, but that shouldn’t be difficult to achieve. Here’s how it works:

Mini Jackpot – 4 to 7 Dragon Pearl symbols will get you the prize at 8x

Minor Jackpot – 8 to 11 Dragon Pearl symbols will pay out at 28x

Major Jackpot – 12 to 14 Dragon Pearl symbols get you a very decent 138x

Grand Jackpot – 15 Dragon Pearl symbols lands you this progressive jackpot

Dragon Chase Free Spins

To trigger your free spins you need to land 3 scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. The scatter is the symbol with a large ‘bonus’ emblazoned across it. You’ll then get 10 free spins, but landing more scatters on reels 2 and 4 during the feature will give you an extra 3 free spins.

During the feature the Golden Dragon (described above) also steps up his game, blowing out his fire rings far more frequently to give your winnings an extra boost. The remaining fireball wilds will even carry over onto the base game once the feature ends.

Payouts and Wagering Limits

With Dragon Chase you can spend as little as C$0.20 per spin, or you can opt to big at C$100 per spin (this equates to C$5 per line). In terms of payouts there’s a lot to gun for, especially with a progressive jackpot up for grabs. This is triggered depending on the symbols you land.

While it may be tricky to go for this big payout, you’ve got a very good chance at nailing down one of the other three

jackpots, paying out between 8x to 138x your bet. Regular combinations in the base game and during free spins can pay up to 50 x your bet, and during the special features you’re in with a chance for the maximum win of 1,170 x. Here are what each symbol pays out for a top winning combination of 5:

Fireball Wild 50x
Golden Dragon 50x
Golden Frog 20x
Blue Pearl 7.5x
Gold Coins 7.5x
Card suit symbols Between 3x and 2x

Final Verdict

Dragon Chase


Dragon Chase is a nicely designed game with a lot going for it. The fire spewing dragon kept things moving along nicely, so spinning didn’t really get boring.

The payouts are lower than I would have liked, even my big win didn’t feel that big. The Free Spins feature also doesn’t reward the player enough, but this is balanced by the fact that special features are easier to trigger than in most slots, giving you multiple stabs at larger wins.

Overall I would say it’s worth a rumble with this dragon, the balanced features mean you’re more likely to walk away without getting burned.

Here be dragons! More fire-breathing beasts await you on these slots
