Dragon’s Lucky 25 Slot Review

Have you heard the latest about Sam Bankman-Fried? The disgraced ex-CEO of FTX is trading again! Yeah man, I couldn’t believe it myself, but it was recently reported on Yahoo! Finance.

But before you get into a frothy and head over to New York’s Metropolitan Detention Center to protest, take comfort in the fact that the only thing he’s trading is tins of fish.

It turns out that canned mackerel – or “macks” as they’re referred to – have replaced the now-banned cigarettes as forms of currency in the big house.

And just like money, macks have worth because this was agreed upon by all involved, they can be transported, and the long shelf life of the foodstuff means they can be seen as a store of value.

But you won’t need to HODL cans of mackerel if you land the top prize in Dragon’s Lucky 25 slot from Mascot. If that happens, you’ll be suckling from the teat of awesomeness and gobbling down caviar instead!


Asian-themed games usually look pretty similar, so how has Mascot Gaming approached the issue of making Dragon’s Lucky 25 slot stand out from the crowd?

They didn’t go nuts and use some never-before-seen theme; instead, they chose to concentrate on the crispness of the design. Just take a look – the symbols seem to jump off the screen! It’s truly a wonder.

However, the mobile experience is only good in landscape mode. Flip your phone vertically, and you’ll see the 5-reel grid shrink and take up residence in the top half of the screen, making it very difficult to see the now tiny symbols.

The controls are also relatively small on any device, but thankfully, they’re still usable.

Stats-wise, Dragon’s Lucky 25 slot offers 20 paylines, an RTP of 95.30%, and a medium volatility rate. The top payout is $150,000, while the max multiplier is 3,750x.

The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols that aren’t Scatters. Wins that include Wild symbols are doubled.



It takes 3, 4, or 5 Scatters to trigger the Free Spins round with 10, 12, or 15 spins, respectively. Not only can you re-trigger Free Spins, but doing so also boosts the active win multiplier each time. Possible multipliers are: 3x, 5x, 10x, 15x, and 25x.


You’ll be offered the Risk Game after each win (look out for the icon near the SPIN button). If you decide to go for it, you’ll be taken to a screen with a giant Wheel of Fortune on the right.

It’s made up of 3 circles, and you’ll see segments with multipliers on em, while others have arrows – these mean that you move to the next, smaller circle with better rewards – or segments that will reverse the wheel's spin.

If you hit the middle of the Wheel, you will be rewarded with a 1,000x multiplier. And just to make it clear, if you hit a blank segment on the Wheel, that’s considered a loss, and you’ll be booted back to the base game.

The Risk Game isn’t accessible if you use the Autoplay function.


Dragon’s Lucky 25 slot is device and software-agnostic and performed flawlessly during testing.

Maximum Win

Betting starts at $0.20 and is capped at $40. The max multiplier is 3,750x, while the largest payout is $150,000.


Look, I’ll be honest with you, this isn’t my type of game. Spin after spin with no action, and only a Risk Game to break the monotony isn’t my idea of fun. But I won’t run the game down for this – it’s doing precisely what it advertised.

The payout to volatility rate is spot-on, the visual experience is lovely (as long as you’re not playing on a phone in portrait mode), and Mascot has created a stress-free environment to play.

However, I do feel that Dragon’s Lucky 25 slot hasn’t managed to do anything to elevate itself above the competition, so it might get lost among the other Asian-themed games on offer.
