The Megaways mechanism has become very popular among online slots enthusiasts over the years. The mechanic generates different ways to win depending on slot symbol layouts, with different size symbols populating the playfield. This means that the reel layout changes with every spin, potentially offering you huge payouts when the line numbers increase. Red Tiger Gaming has licensed this mechanic from Big Time Gaming and put it into their Dragon's Fire Megaways slot, which puts you in a dragon's treasure cave with a chance to win big.
Dragon's Fire is a 6 reel video slot that offers up to 117,649 ways to win. The game is set in that cave and includes the following symbols: blue egg, green egg, red egg, gold egg, blue dragon, green dragon, red dragon, and gold dragon. There are additional amber eggs and a dragon's eye, both of which have features in the game.
Those slot features in Dragon's Eye include wild symbols, win multipliers, free spins, and randomly appearing wilds that appear when the dragon breathes fire onto the reels. The game's layout and features combine to give Dragon's Eye a return to player (RTP) percentage of 95.7%. This number is in line with most other games from Red Tiger Gaming.
In all, the game is fun, but you have to be prepared for some lengthy lean streaks while playing. If you can stomach that, there's some excitement to be had here. Seeing the payline pop up like they do is great, and indeed, I did get some impressive wins during my spins. Conversely, I also had a long period of time wherein I couldn't get a win for the life of me, despite the playfield looking like I had one. To me, that's the major downfall with these Megaways games: there is so much going on that you can never tell when you have a win or what one may look like.
If you're a fan of Megaways games, this is a game you should certainly try out. If you're new to the mechanic, give it a crack but I'd recommend you check out some other Megaways games after you have formed an opinion on this one.
