Age of Dragons Slot Machine by Kalamba Games - Review and Play for free
Age of Dragons is an elaborate and detailed game that’s best enjoyed on desktop. Though it will work on mobile just as well as it’s mobile-optimized, you might miss a few details so for the best experience play it on desktop. The game uses an unusual 3-4-3-4-3 reel setup with 17 positions for symbols, so it’s best to think of it as a 5×3 slot with an extra symbol on reel 2 and on reel 4. There are 40 fixed paylines, and you can pay from €0.40 to €80 per spin. I’ve played Age of Dragons for an hour or so, so let me give you a detailed opinion about this fantasy-themed slot game.
Main game and paytable
The paytable is a low-variance one. What this means is that you won’t be able to get more than 3x your total bet for five-of-a-kind, but the prizes for four- and three-of-a-kind are generous in comparison as you’ll be able to at least get your stake back. In addition, there are as many as six low-value symbols, and four symbols with artwork that represent the main symbols in the game. Wild is the only symbol that stands out, as you can win 12.50x your bet if you land all five.
There are actually three types of Wilds. Wild Symbol is the normal one, and Wild Collection symbol has an added function of collecting a Ruby held by the symbol. When you collect three Rubies for a column, the Wild Column – the third type of Wild – will appear on the reel. The Wild Column has three lives so it will stick for three spins. If you landed this during the free spins game, then the Wild Column will stick until the end of feature. This is only available on reels 1, 3 and 5, which are three rows high.
Dragon is the Scatter symbol that triggers the free spins game, and you’ll get 10 free spins when you land all three of these symbols. Any additional Dragon symbol that lands during the feature will grant an additional free spin.
As usual in Kalamba games, there are side missions which you can choose – collecting character symbols, Wild symbols or Scatters. You can choose to collect for 30, 50, 75 or 100 spins and your prize can reach up to 1000x your bet.
Age of Dragons Slots RTP
According to the developer, the theoretical return to player (RTP) can range from 96.18% to 97.29%, and the higher value is always used when determining the value of a slot game. This means Age of Dragons is an excellent slot when it comes to theoretical payout, and you should play it for that alone even if it didn’t have other qualities. The game doesn’t feel as rewarding as the RTP indicates though, and this is because the paytable and the setup usually are unable to produce a decent win, so you have to wait for a big one.
Age of Dragons is a quality game with a quality payout, but due to some unusual things such as the reel setup, the missions, and the fact that it doesn’t seem to be paying well most of the time, it’s not an automatic choice for your next slot. Try it out and see if you like it.
