Fill the Dragon Meter and you might see some fiery results in this Dragon Wins mobile slot.
This is the first of a new generation of NextGen games and boy does it show.
Gone are the graphics of yesteryears that have plagued games like the Cool Bananas phone slot.
Instead, you get 3x4x5x4x3 hexagonal reels, with 40 paylines and 4 friendly dragons sitting by the side of the screen.
Granted, the graphics here are more cutesy than real fantasy slots like the Dragon Sisters game, for example.
But you can’t deny that if it’s dragons you want, dragons is exactly what you will get here – even if there can sometimes be too much happening on screen.
Namely, because each time you win using one of the high paying symbols, you’ll fill a meter to the site of each of the flying lizards by the side of the reels.
There are so many Dragon Wins slot bonus features here, you’ll have to read our features below to get the full list.
But needless to say, not all four of the Dragon spins are as good as each other.
Ironically, getting wins on the higher paying red and yellow dragons isn’t that hard to do; as there are 40 paylines, you get little wins often, thanks to the wild.
But that green dragon, who gives you the best feature of them all is so elusive it can be darn frustrating at times.
Because you get lots of little wins, and lots of base game bonus games, it would be easy to think you are coming out on top of this slot machine.
But actually, you’re mostly losing slowly; this is a fairly volatile video slot that rivals the likes of Book of Ra Deluxe 6 in temperament.
That’s ok though, as long as you accept that you only really win big if you get one blazing Dragon Spin feature, or the free spins with stacked wilds.
However, watch for those dragons breathing fire on screen to pay up to 10x your win, and you’ll suddenly understand why this is called Dragon Wins.

Wilds: The 'wild' emblem is the wild symbol and will replace all other symbols on the 5 reels to create a win over this 40 payline slot machine.
Dragon's Fire: After any win with one of the higher paying dragon symbol, one of the dragons on the side of the reels may breath fire onto the screen.
This will repeat the Dragon Wins by 3, 5 or 10 times.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more scatters to trigger one of two bonus games feature.
How to trigger the Dragon Spins: Each time you get a win using one of the Dragon symbols you fill that Dragon's meter; a bit like the symbols in Emoji Planet slot, but much much slower.
You'll then get 3 free spins with one of the following features:
Our luckiest wins came with the green and red dragon, but the more consistent wins from the other two colours.
Whilst we like the look and sounds of this new NetGen slot game, we can't help but feel that it manages to create a lot of noise and distractions.
Distractions from the fact that the many bonus feature that you work so hard to catch don't always pay enough to warrant the patience.
This will appeal to risk takers who love lots of bonus game features, like the Guns n Roses slot by NetEnt.
However, if you like your games a little more streamlined we'd recommend the Samurai Split game by the same provider.
That said, this Dragons Wins slot on mobile just shows that NextGen isn't afraid to try something new, and that should always be applauded.
