Embark on an epic adventure with Red Tiger Gaming in Dragons Clusterbuster, the online slot that's new for 2022. A deep fantasy theme combines with captivating gameplay and the chance to win big cash prizes on the reels. There are multiple opportunities to win, but you could collect the top payout of x5250.
Dragons are nothing new for Red Tiger, and they feature in many of their previous slots with titles such as Dragon King Legend of the Seas, Dragon's Luck Deluxe, Dragon's Fire and Mega Dragon. It's not unusual for the studio to wander deep into fantasy territory, and it's a genre that they do particularly well, being known for their rich creativity and vibrant designs.
In Dragons Clusterbuster, you'll be playing on a 9x9 grid which is set up on a cluster pays basis. This means there are no pattern formations or formal paylines. Instead, you'll be looking for five matching symbols in vertical or horizontal lines. Much easier, right?! Betting is from 0.10 to 20.00, and volatility is high. Don't be fooled by how easy it sounds; it can take a while for the prizes to start rolling in!
This isn't the most graphic of all their designs, but they've gone for an understated elegance that oozes a sinister vibe from the start. There's an overall look about these reels that makes them feel almost as if they could almost have been lifted directly from Game of Thrones. Could this be one of Daenerys' dragons?! With a dragon's egg in the centre, dragon's scales in the backdrop and ridges all around, the fire-breathing beasties might be closer than you think…
There are a total of nine symbols in the paytable, with the playing card royals making up the five low pays. The premiums include a pair of crossed swords, a scroll, a Globus Cruciger and a crown. If you get a cluster of 20 or more crown symbols, you’ll collect a x50 prize.
To help you gather payouts more quickly, there’s a wild on the board that can substitute for any of the regular pays.
Chain Reaction is included in this slot which means that all symbols included in a winning cluster will be removed from the board. This leaves spaces for new symbols to drop in from above, creating new lines and patterns. If there are any more winning clusters now visible, the cycle will repeat time and again until there are no more wins.
In the centre of the reels, you'll notice there's a 3x3 block that is locked and covered with a glowing egg. You'll need to smash all the tiles to uncover the underlying prize, and you can do this with the Dragon Eyes Progress feature. You'll need to remove all of the outer tiles around them, and once you have removed them, all the Clusterbuster eggs in the centre hatches and a dragon eye will appear above the reels.
You'll receive the colours in turn, with each hatchling bringing a different benefit, including multipliers, wilds and the removal of low pays.
But that's not all the reels have to offer; once you have unlocked all three colours of egg, the centre space will show the words "free spins". You'll receive ten free spins, during which time the Clusterbuster will be removed, so you'll have extra space to form the clusters. You cannot retrigger this feature.
Dragons Clusterbuster from Red Tiger attempts to approach online slots from a different direction. While there’s nothing on the reels you won’t find in one form or another in other games, the end result is nevertheless thoroughly pleasing.
