Chinese themed video slots are one of the most crowded sectors for casino themes, as we see endless lanterns, dragons, fireworks, and more in these titles. Microgaming's Dragon Dance slot does little to change the overall theme, but it does bring in some great features that make it worth playing.
Dragon Dance is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that's got the above-referenced Chinese theme to it. The game's symbols include the traditional slot 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace and are complimented by a woman with symbols, a man with drum, children costumed with fans, a walking dragon, and a real dragon. Fireworks and a game title symbol round out things in terms of looks.
Features in Dragon Dance include wild symbols, scatters, free spins, and Microgaming's Re-spin reel. The re-spin reel is a very cool feature that allows you to re-spin one or more reels if you feel that it could net you a better result. This brings a lot of replay value to the game, as you can test your luck on one reel for a chance at a lucrative strike. This of course comes with some risk, as the more likely a big payout is, the higher the cost of the re-spin. I did manage to rake in some huge wins with this though, as my luck held out and big symbols came through the re-spins. There is a posted return to player percentage on this game of 96.5%, which is high for an online game.
The overall quality of Dragon Dance is very high, given the re-spin feature. If it wasn't there I don't know if I could recommend it to you. The fact that it is present though is great, and I think you should give this slot a go.
