Fire-breathing dragons and kings and queens who have the power to freeze and burn both objects and people on demand are some of the characters that you'll encounter while playing the Dragon Shard slot at Anytime Casino.
Dragon Shard is the third game to be released by Stormcraft Studios through Microgaming, and as well as boasting plenty of thrilling special features, it has an above-average RTP (Return to Player) of 96.77%.
You can explore the fantasy world of Dragon Shard on your PC or mobile with as little as 5p and as much as £200 per spin, and if you manage to land the right combinations, you could be taking home up to eight hundred times your stake!
Our Verdict: With the Dragon Shard slot game, Stormcraft Studios gives you the option to enhance your potential wins through a feature called Win Boost. It costs double your stake but makes the Mystery Symbols more valuable and also lets you create wins in both directions.
As well as Win Boost, the Dragon Shard slot contains stacked symbols and a Free Spins Bonus, the latter of which is accompanied by Mystery Reels.
Design: Sumptuous and rich graphics bring the world of Dragon Shard to life through images of mountains, forests, rivers, and a mysterious stone circle. Haunting orchestral music also captures your imagination as you begin to spin the reels and meet the Ice King and Fire Queen and their respective dragons for the very first time.
The red-haired Fire Queen in her bronze armour and tiara contrasts against the silver-haired Ice King in his fur coat. The pair are the most valuable symbols in the Dragon Shard slot game apart from the game's logo, and they're closely followed on the paytable by the two dragons. Wins can also be created using the four playing card suits – hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs.
You can mute the music, turn on Auto-Play, change your stake, and view the paytable/rules using the buttons that run along the bottom of the game window.
Wild Symbol: The wild symbol is represented by the glowing Dragon Shard logo, and it can replace all symbols except scatters when it can help to make a winning combination. Five wilds on the same payline award 20x your bet.
Bonus Features: As standard, the Dragon Shard slot offers you forty paylines on which you can create winning combos from left-to-right. However, if you enable Win Boost for double your current stake, you get the benefit of pays-both-ways.
Win Boost also affects the Mystery Symbols feature in which the mystery symbols that appear on the reels during the base game are turned into a matching symbol. Without Win Boost, any paytable symbol (including the wild) can be picked, but with Win Boost active, only high-paying symbols and wilds can be chosen.
You get stacked symbols regardless of Win Boost, and the Ice King and Fire Queen can appear fully stacked on all five reels.
Another highlight is the Free Spins Bonus, where mystery symbols come stacked on up to three Mystery Reels.
