More cute and fluffy than fire breathing menaces, these Dragons still have a few claws at the ready for the high thrills gambler.
All you need to do is look at theses big bellied dragons and know that the Dragon Drop mobile slot isn’t meant to be taken hugely seriously. In fact, this NextGen game is by far more suited as a mobile phone slot than for tablets or iPads. Why? The graphics, whilst cute with big nosed farmers, treasures chests and fluffy sheep, look amateurish on the bigger screens. Something which you don’t notice as much when playing on your smartphone.
That said, don’t let the cutesy theme fool you, this Dragon Drop slot game is not your average NextGen fare.
Unlike the fun but very low volatility Potion Commotion mobile slot, Dragon Drop hides some much more interesting numbers. The return to player rate is at a relatively low 95.27%, but that’s because the maximum win with the free spin feature is 1800x your bet.
The reason for this is simple: during the free spins the dragon wilds (which drop down from the screen, but basically the same as having wilds only appear on reels 2,3 and 4) are sticky and quadruple your win.
So if you can get a wall of dragons on those middle reels, that’s at least a four of a kind if not five of a kind repeated wins. We didn’t get close to the jackpot numbers, but we did get 105x our bet and saw this happen, much to our joy. So it’s not mythical, just hard to capture.
With only 8 free spins up for the taking, the chance of getting that wall of sticky wilds is not high. We’ve walked away several times from the free spins with only about 10x to 20x our bet and felt a little cheated. After all, it took ages to catch the free spins, surely we should be rewarded with at least 50x our bet?
The good thing about the Dragon Drop bonus game is that you’re not reliant on it to get good win. The dropping wilds in the game can arrive at any time, one, two or three at a time, for some satisfying wins even in the base game.
This is probably because they come with a decent 2x multiplier and can help create a good 5 of a kind win. Not one thousand times your bet wins, but at least a good 30x to 50x, which makes up for the temperamental nature of the free spins and helps your budget stretch to catch a good free spin feature.
In the end you’ll be simply watching those flying dragons on the top of the game like a hawk, waiting for all three to drop out of the sky.

Wilds: You get three dragons floating above reels 2, 3 and 4 at all times. They will randomly drop down onto the reels after any spin to grant you wilds. Wins made using the wilds will be doubled in value. These dragons replace all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatters & Free Spins: Get at least three dragon egg scatters anywhere on the reels and you'll set off 8 free spins with a 2x multiplier. This may not seem like a lot, but if the dragons decide to 'drop in' on the reels, the wilds remain sticky for the remainder of the game, plus now have a 4x multiplier attach to them.
Can leave you with equal thrills and disappointment as many a time only one dragon decides to drop down and it feels like a waste of free spins. But if all three decide to join the party, you'll be celebrating some decent wins.
Dragon Drop mobile slot loses a point for not looking as pretty as it should as an iPad or Android tablet slot. The fact that the free spins are so unpredictable also didn't help it's move from a four star to three star slot.
And yet, when it comes to slot jackpots, this is one of the more generous NextGen slots, only rivalled by the likes of Medusa or 300 Shields in terms of being able to provide players with decent big wins. Those dropping wilds make all the difference and when they create a wall of dragons, brings enough thrills to make us want to revisit this Dragon Drop slot on mobile.
