Magic Dragon by GameArt

No need to imagine dragons, the reel deal is right here! Ah, the dragon, so misunderstood, yet so mighty.

Ah, the dragon, so misunderstood, yet so mighty. Revered in the East as a creature of light, air and joy, but reviled in the West as a demon and serpent (well, until we realised how cool they obviously are). These mighty beasts are here to bring you fun, excitement and real chances to win!

The imagery and graphics of Magic Dragon are testament to the freshness and quality of GameArt’s design. With ornate Eastern design influences, finely tuned graphics and a neat and clearly laid-out grid, this game fills a classic slots niche beautifully.

Unlike many other slots games, Magic Dragon doesn’t blast loud music at you during play. Instead, you hear only the sound of the reels, with sound effects for wins and matches.

Magic Dragon has 5 reels and an incredible 243 paylines, which makes it less volatile than the majority of video slot games.

The first step when playing Magic Dragon is to select your multiplier bet value, this can range from between 0.01 and 1.00; this bet is automatically multiplied by 50 and displayed as the total bet amount. You can choose to click spin for each round, or else make use of the autoplay feature. Autoplay allows you to select the number of spins while maintaining control of your bank by setting both a loss and a single win limit.

Like most video slots the card icons A, K, Q, J, 10, 9 are the lowest-value symbols, with the more creative, higher value symbols represented by a red or green dragon, a koi fish, red pockets and gold coins. As in most slots, the wild can substitute for anything except the scatter. The gold dragon head is wild and a Chinese red and gold coin is the scatter.

The wild symbol changes for free spins and depending on the multiplier applied it will be a dragon head in either green, blue, red, pink, or black. The wilds will only show up on reels 2, 3 and 4 – this is structured so that they act as symbol substitutes rather than paying out directly when combined.


A winning spin activates a gamble option which offers you the opportunity to wager your winnings on a double-or-nothing bet based on which you can win by selecting the correct colour card, red or black. You can wager your profit up to 5 times per winning spin but if you find this too tempting or irritating you can always disable this function in the game settings.

The free spins feature is activated after 3 or more scatters; you get to choose between 5 options, and each option has different multipliers for all substituting wild wins:

  • 10 free games: 10x, 15x or 30x
  • 13 free games:  8x,  10x or 15x
  • 15 free games:  5x,   8x or 10x
  • 20 free games:  3x,   5x or 8x
  • 25 free games:  2x,   3x or 5x

Free spins have an extra bonus feature which rewards you with a payout of between 2x and 50x your bet when the red pocket symbol appears anywhere on reels 1 and 5 pay

Magic Dragon is available to play on multiple South African online casinos where GameArt slots appear.

Magic Dragon is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox and others.

Magic Dragon is a medium volatility game, which means you’re going in with higher bets to gain higher wins, but not risking it all. Combined with the fact that it doesn’t have a musical score, this game can cause your mind to wander a little and possibly make a few bad choices.

We recommend limiting playtime if you find this happening, or finding some music to play in the background while you play. Set a budget for play as well, to ensure you don’t suddenly find yourself chasing the elusive dragon a little too far.

Magic Dragon is perfect for players that enjoy a balance of excitement and risk. Its graphics and sound effects are fun, but not overwhelming. It’s a great middle-of-the-road game for players of all experience levels.

Seasoned players may find the game a little less thrilling, but it’s a good, chilled space for a newcomer to get to grips with online slots without being too distracted.
