The Golden Dragon has arrived on mobile and online casinos and so we ask: are these expanding reels all that they are cracked up to be in this Jinse Dao Dragon slot on mobile?
The theme of this Jinse Dao Dragon mobile slot is one done many times before. From the 50 Dragons slot to the Double Happiness slot game, you know more or less what you’ll find on these 5 reels 3 rows.
You get golden statues as the high paying symbols, from Tigers, Ox, Carps and Lotus, all with the same value. Then you have Ace to 9 symbols, also all with the same value. It’s the simplest paytable we’ve ever seen.
But the paytable is secondary to two symbols: the glowing Orb or the Yin Yang scatter. Forget the rest of the symbols, nothing else matters but summoning that beautiful Jinse Dao Dragon.
This casino slot is all about the Glowing Orb. Catch 3 on reel 1, and you’ll find that reels 2-5 will magically expand giving you more ways to win.
You won’t get more ways to win, because the whole point of this feature is purely to get you more glowing orbs on reel 2-5. Each of those glowing orbs has instant cash prize amounts on there.
As long as you find them on consecutive reels, you’ll win the instant cash prize on the orb. This can vary from 1x to 20x your bet. So the bigger the reels, the more likely you are to get more glowing orbs and more chances of getting those big prizes.
If you manage to get the mini, minor or major orbs over reels 4 to 5, you’ll also win one of 3 of 4 jackpots – ranging from 40x, 100x to 400x your bet.
Remember how we said that only two symbols matter? Well, the second symbol is the Yin and Yang Scatters. Because when you find three, you’ll get to spin a bonus wheel to win either free spins or one of the four jackpots.
And it’s the fourth in-game jackpot in this Jinse Dao Dragon online slot that’s truly interesting. Because you can win as much as 2,000x your bet, which is as much as you can hope to get here.
Even in the free spins, the main feature is that instead of expanding by 3 rows, during the free spins you can expand by up to 5 rows, all in the hope of catching more glowing orbs and more instant cash prizes.
Will this Dragon themed slot make you rich? Probably not. It’s not the hardest hitting video slot, with the biggest features. But it is pretty, easy to play, and with just a few features to understand.

Glowing Orb Feature: If 1 or 2 orbs appear on reel 1, then the orbs will nudge up or down to fill all 3 positions of that reel.
3 Glowing Orb symbols on reel 1 will trigger the expanding reel feature and up to 3 rows will be added to reels 2-5.
However, Glowing orbs on reels 2-5 have values of anything from 1x to 20x your total bet or a jackpot. During this feature, each glowing orb symbol on adjacent reels from reel 2 will award the prize displayed on it.
How to win the Jackpots: Using the glowing orb feature, certain orbs will have the mini, minor, or major on the orb.
If you get them adjacent to other orbs from reel 1, you'll win the jackpots. But where's the Jinse Dao Dragon Mega jackpot?
Alternatively, you can simply catch all the bonuses in the Yin Yang Bonus feature.
Random Expanding Reels: If reel 2 contains at least one glowing orb symbols, the reels may randomly expand and you get 3 glowing orbs on reel 1.
Yin Yang Wheel Bonus: If you get the Yin and Yang symbol scatter on reels 3, 4 and 5, you'll get 1 spin of the bonus wheel.
The segments will give you anything from 5 to 20 free spins or any of the four jackpots. If the expanding reel feature is triggered during free spin bonus, up to 5 rows up be added above reels 2-5.
If you love Williams slots, you'll love this Jinse Dao Dragon slot on mobile. There's a whole load of very fun features, and a simplified paytable helps with that.
Jinse Dao Dragon is 5x3 reel video slot with 243 ways to win, expanding reel features, four in-game jackpots, and glowing orbs that grant you instant cash wins.
We wish there had been a little more focus on the pay symbols, rather than just making it all about the glowing orbs or the jackpots, but these two features do give you enough thrills to keep you spinning.
We don't think we will be playing this beyond 10 or 20 minutes tops, less if the game didn't trigger anything good by then, but it definitely has potential, as do all WMS games.
