with 100 paylines and a far east theme, fans of classic Vegas and Macao casino games will fall head over heels with this Dragon Lines mobile slot.
This was the first Ainsworth slot game to move from the offline world to online (back in 2013), and then again to mobile in 2015.
The Dragon Lines slot is their signature game, both as a first release for desktop and then on Android and iOS casinos – even though we’d argue it’s not necessarily their best one.
But you can see the appeal, with stacked wilds throughout, and a free spins feature that feel richer each time you enter, you could truly believe that you’re sitting at a casino and playing on a real machine.
Because the Dragon Lines video slot comes from a land-based background, the return to player rate is a fairly low 94.30%.
The reason is that it’s more traditional in game play; whilst the likes of NetEnt’s Koi Princess slot assumes you need constant entertainment and features, Dragon Lines assumes you have the patience, and budget, to wait for the real action.
And you’ll need a decent budget as with 100 paylines, this 5×3 reels game minimum bet starts at a high £€$1 a spin.
This style of game play isn’t for everyone, but for those who love the style, it’s hard to beat.
The nice thing here is that the wins could happen at any time; namely because you have stacked wilds throughout and there’s no multipliers to speak of.
What you want is to catch a few rows of stacked wilds for some brilliant 5 of a kind wins over numerous paylines.
So why wait for the free spins? There is absolutely no reason for it; except that the wins seems to come a little easier during the bonus games.
If you want to aim for that, then you’ll need a good 200 spins to trigger the free spins in this Dragon Lines slot game.
If not, know that, much like a classic Vegas machine, the big wins here could happen on any spin. Not quite as much fun as Aristocrat’s 50 Dragons slot, but pretty damn close.

Stacked Wilds: The dragon is the wild symbol and comes stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5 only during the base game, and reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 during the free spins.
It replaces all other symbols except scatter.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more Yin & Yan scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger 10 free spins.
The main bonus is that you now get stacked wilds on reel 2 as well as 3, 4, and 5, allowing for easier 4 and 5 of a kind wins.
You can re-trigger 5 additional free games if you find 3 more Yin and Yan scatters, but that's a pretty rare event.
The Dragon Lines mobile slot looks and plays beautifully. It's a classic theme that whilst not particularly unique, is done well enough you don't care if it's similar to the Double Happiness slot, or countless others of its type.
The stacked wilds keep thing interesting on each spin, though patience and a willingness to get through a fair few spins with nothing much interesting is needed to truly enjoy this game.
Once you're ready to up your game to something a little harder hitting, we'd also recommend Golden Legend by Play'n GO.
