A bright and colourful theme, this Dragon Shrine slot from Quickspin has a few thrills.
And by few, we mean no that many. Don’t get us wrong. the Dragon Shrine mobile slot theme, despite it’s simplicity, works.
The vibrant graphics put a modern twist on an ancient style, all the while still keeping true to the Asian slot theme.
You get golden dragons, stacked symbols, and stacked wilds, all mixed in with colourful jewels across a 5 reel slot machine. But these 5 reels aren’t uniform in nature.
In fact the first and last reel are 3 symbols high with the centre three reels being 4 symbols high. This produces 40 paylines of medium volatility game play, and helps create the unique look of this Quickspin mobile slot game.
There are two features that will help create the big wins, because it certainly won happen by just getting 5 symbols on a payline.
The first is the Dragons’ Stack Respin Feature, this occurs when you get a full stack of golden dragons on reel 1. You’ll then get 3 respins where any golden dragons across the other reels will become sticky.
When the spins are finally over, hopefully you have a screen full of golden dragons, and a big win. Whilst undeniably fun, this is not a feature that shows up as often as we would have liked.
Then come the Quickspin Dragon Shrine slot free spins. Which more consistently brings the biggest thrills.
And the big wins for that matter. You get 10 fee spins, where the 5 reels turn into pays both ways slot reels, meaning you get wins from left to right and right to left.
This alone produces more wins, thanks to those stacked symbols and wilds, but mix it in with the Dragon’s Stack Respins, which now transfer a full stack on reel 1 on to reel 5 and vice versa, allows for a whole array of golden symbols for big winning potential.
Especially the respin feature shows up more often than in the base game.
Granted, if we wanted big wins and pay both ways we’d probably still stick to Yggdrasil’s Legend of the White Snake Lady slot, but Dragon Shine still has enough shine to tempt us back from time to time.

Wilds: The wild symbol is wild and substitutes for all except the green temple bonus symbol.
Dragon's Stack Respin: Find a stack of dragons on reel 1 and you'll get 3 respins.
On each respin any more golden dragon symbols on the reels will remain sticky and any wins are totalled up at the end. It doesn't shows up that often, but can bring enough wins to give you some respite during the base game.
Dragon Shrine Free Spins: Find 3 of the green temple bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4, and you'll be awarded 10 free spins. The reels turn now Pays Both Ways, giving you more chances and better odds of creating a winning pay line.
Here the Dragon's Stack feature can also occur, but this time the stack of golden dragon will appear on reel 1 and 5.
Overall this Dragon Shrine slot machine is a simple game. Perhaps a little too simple.
It does have its perks, with great vibrant graphics and animations, that will entertain the eye, but the overall game play didn't seem as thrilling as it could have.
The best part of this Dragon Shrine slot game is the free spins, and with a minimum bet of 0.20, even on a small budget you actually have good odds of hitting them.
