Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win Slot Review
Fiery pearls ignite the bonus reels in this Chinese-themed slot where you can also find all the lucky Chinese charms to bring you luck as you spin the reels in Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win. I'm all for learning about new cultures, but the presence of a money tree gives a young kid false hope as I am still waiting for the coins that I planted as a kid to sprout into a money tree.
Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win is a 5x3 reel, 25 payline video slot powered by [Booongo(https://www.bitstarz.com/games/booongo)software. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (J-A), Cash Coins, Money Trees, Money Frogs, and Gold Dragon Heads. Special Symbols include the Yin and Yang Wild, the Cash Coins Vase Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature, and the Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbol that triggers the Bonus Game Feature. There are also 3 fixed Jackpots to be won. More detail will be given in the Features section.
As far as controls go, at the bottom of the reels from left to right, you will find the Win window, increase and decrease Bet buttons, and the Balance Window followed by the Turbo Mode and Mute Sound buttons. On the right of the reels is the Autoplay button, Spin button, Coins icon that expands to the Bet Settings, and the Information icon that expands to the Paytable.
The features in Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win include the Yin and Yang Wild, the Cash Coins Vase Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature, and the Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbol that triggers the Bonus Game Feature. There are also 3 fixed Jackpots to be won.
The Yin and Yang Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Cash Coins Vase Scatter and the Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbol, to form potential winning combinations.
Land 3 Cash Coins Vase Scatters on reels 2, 3, and 4 to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 8 free spins with the Royal Card Suit Symbols removed from the reels. The Bonus Feature can also be triggered during the Free Spins Feature. Land 3 more Cash Coins Vase Scatters to retrigger the feature.
Land 6 Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbols to trigger the Bonus Game, where you will be taken to a special set of reels that only contain Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbols. These symbols have different instant cash prizes attached to them. 3 spins are awarded, and the landed symbols remain on the reels until the feature ends. Each new Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbol that lands, reset the spins to 3. At the end of the feature, either by completing the free spins awarded or filling the screen with Dragon Pearls Bonus Symbols (where you will be awarded the Grand Jackpot of 1000x your stake), all values are added and awarded. Mini and Major Jackpot Pearls can also land to award those Jackpots of 30x and 150x your total bet, respectively.
Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.
Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win provides a nice variety of features, including the Free Spins Feature, but the biggest draw-card here is the Bonus Feature that has the potential of awarding the Jackpots that are up for grabs. The design, animation, and graphics are excellent. The volatility is medium, and the RTP sits at a low 95.01%.
The max coin win is 1000x your stake.
Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win employs familiar gameplay that has become popular with several slots these days; having said that, they have paired the gameplay with a Free Spins Feature. Usually, Hold and Win slots are all about the Bonus Feature, so the Free Spins Feature is a great addition. Fire up the Dragon Pearls and hold out for some great wins along the way. Just don't forget to water your planted coins; perhaps that is why my money tree never grew.
