9 Dragon Kings Slot Review

My first tattoo was of a dragon. Well, let me clarify – I asked for a dragon but instead, I got something that looked like a seahorse with wings. You see, my mate wanted to be a tattoo artist and we all wanted free ink, so that was the perfect storm that led to my indelible disaster.

That monstrosity stayed on my chest for decades, even though I got more ink elsewhere. You see, I didn’t trust the new artists to do the cover-up as that’s rather specialized work.

Happily, the abomination is now covered by a leering skull, but dragons will always be close to my heart. Literally. And so, in keeping with my affection for the scaly, winged beasts, let’s check out 9 Dragon Kings slot from Platipus Gaming.


This is definitely not the typical Platipus fare. Not only have they gone for an Asian-themed game – which isn’t their first foray, of course – but this game is a single-payline slot. Interesting combo!

The 9 in the title comes from the number of symbols in the game and as for the “kings” part, well that’s anyone’s guess.

Platipus has opted for 3 reels with double dragon symbols on em, and the background is this wavy red thing that does fit in nicely with the overall theme.

Things don’t look that great in portrait mode on my phone, though. Here, there’s a lot of background and the grid is rather small. Even though you can distinguish the differently colored dragons, it’s not the best experience. If you’re playing on a phone, stick to landscape mode.

Another disappointment is the RTP, which is only 95% and below the industry standard. However, get a load of the max win! That, my fine peeps, is a whopping €319,680! Alright 9 Dragon Kings slot, you have my attention.

The betting range is also generous, and you can start packing at a miserly €0.10 or bring out the big guns and max out at €180. The last thing to mention here is that the volatility is medium, so expect fairly frequent, moderately generous payouts.


The Bonus symbol is distinguishable from the other double dragon symbols in that it’s a solitary one. It will show up wherever it damn well wants on the reels coz it’s the Bonus, dammit.

If you nail 3 Bonus symbols on the payline, you’ll score a magnificent 888x your bet. Landing 1 or more Bonus symbols on the payline will also trigger the Re-spin feature.

During this round, only 1 respin is awarded and any of the dragon symbols that land will be of the same color.

Unfortunately, you can’t re-trigger a Re-spin and no matter how many Bonus symbols set off the feature, you’ll still only get a solitary re-spin.

If you hit a combo of 3 dragons on the payline, and at least one of those has a color that’s different from the rest, you’ll clinch the Mixed Symbols Payout. That’s worth 8x your stake.


Platipus always makes sure that their games work across all platforms, so it was no surprise that this one passed with flying colors after hundreds of spins. You should be able to play it on any device and use any browser of your choosing.

Maximum Win

A gargantuan max win of €319,680 is possible on 9 Dragon Kings slot. Place your bets at the highest stake of €180 and nail that 1,776x multiplier – that’s all you need to do. I know, easier said than done, but I have faith in you!


“Exciting” isn’t an adjective I’d ascribe to 9 Dragon Kings slot. I reckon you’ll have to be motivated by the money to stick it out in this game but thankfully, there’s a lot of incentive in the form of the €319,680 prize.

I can’t put a spin on the features and make them sound alluring because they’re not – this is as straightforward as you’re bound to get.

But simplicity and the potential to make tons of cash might just be alluring enough; you’ll need to decide for yourself if that’s reason enough to give this one a go.
