Slot Review: 8 Dragons

Does the world of Ancient China, complete with lucky animals, powerful beasts and mystical creatures sound appealing? Then 8 Dragons from Pragmatic Play may be just the online slot that will have you spinning with excitement.


8 Dragons is a 5×3-reel slot that you can enjoy here at The Phone Casino, a no deposit mobile casino that offers free daily spins to all our players. In this exciting game of chance, there are 20 paylines, each with its own unique shape and design, that offer you the opportunity to win. This game also has an above-average RTP of 96.37% and is considered medium variance, meaning it offers players a reasonable mix of small and large wins when they do occur.

When placing your wager, you can set a number of options using the plus and minus sign next to the Spin button. Clicking the plus sign for the first time will open a window that also includes the Coins Per Line, Coin Value and Total Bet options. The minimum bet you can make when playing this game is £0.20, or £0.01 per payline, up to a maximum of £100, or 10 coins per line at a coin value of £0.50. The game also has a number of Autoplay Settings, including Turbo Spin, Quick Spin and Skip Screens. You can set the game to spin automatically between 10 and 1,000 times.

There are also wilds and scatters, which offer the bread and butter of this game’s extra features. We unpack this in more detail in our standout features and bonuses section below.

Graphics and soundtrack

As expected from Pragmatic Play, this slot offers high quality, polished graphics. With the game being set in Ancient China, it relies heavily on a colour palette made up of red (the Chinese colour for good luck) and gold (another colour that’s obviously associated with wealth). These colours are broken up with other contrasting colours, including blues, greens, purples and oranges, which really help certain symbols pop and catch your eye.

The symbols themselves are wonderfully detailed. From Chinese dragons to powerful tigers and mysterious red envelopes, players get to feast on a range of incredible imagery. The standard symbols of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are also suitably designed to fit perfectly into the aesthetic of this game.

Animations are also high-quality, with reels spinning smoothly, and wins and bonuses offering the right amount of flash, depending on how much you’ve won or what you’ve triggered.

The game also features a soundtrack that harks back to Ancient China, complete with flutes, drums and other sounds that would feel right at home in a Chinese concert, worthy of the Emperor himself!

Standout features and bonuses

When it comes to the standout features and bonuses, this title keeps it simple. You can enjoy wilds (the magical two-headed dragon in the shape of an eight) and scatters (the mysterious red envelope). Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter, while landing three or more scatters will trigger free spins. You can choose from a number of free spin options when the free spins activate. These options are:

  • 5 free spins with an 8x, 10x and 15x wild multiplier
  • 8 free spins with a 6x, 8x and 10x wild multiplier
  • 15 free spins with a 3x, 4x and 6x wild multiplier
  • 20 free spins with a 2x, 3x and 4x wild multiplier
  • Mystery number of spins and multipliers, selected at random from the options above

You can also retrigger free spins during the free spin rounds an unlimited number of times, meaning you stand the chance to enjoy a huge number of free games! If you also happen to stack the dragons (wilds), you could increase your multiplier to a maximum of 30x. This is on top of the fact that you can play our mobile slots with no deposit.
