Dragon Orb Goes Live At Realtime Gaming Casinos
September 22, 2017
Dragon Orb is the new online video pokie from Realtime Gaming that adds to the collection of Chinese themed titles. It is simpler in construction than some of the earlier video pokies like Fucanglong, but is fast paced and visually appealing. You can now play Dragon Orb at the desktop and mobile gaming platforms of Australian online casinos like Fair Go, Ace Pokies and Majestic Slots Club.
The reels are set in a moonlit Chines garden where fireflies flit about. Dragon Orb has the standard structure of five reels and three rows of symbols. There are only ten selectable paylines. However, winning combinations can occur both left to right as usual and also from right to left. This is as good as 20 paylines, with the added advantage that you pay for only ten of them. The total bet range varies from AU$0.10 to AU$50.00. This should satisfy all Australian players except the very high rollers.
The Dragon Orb is the wild symbol that can appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4. However whenever it lands it also converts the other two symbols on the same reel into Dragon Orb wilds. All the symbols awarding line payouts are thematic in nature. They are dragon, blue lotus, temple, ewer, candles, scroll and cauldron. All start paying from three-of-a-kind combinations. The line payouts seem to be on the lower side. Five dragon symbols on an active payline pay only 250 times the line bet. However all symbols appear stacked on the reels. This leads to multiple winning combinations and makes up for the low payouts.
The highlight feature in Dragon Orb online pokie is the Wild Respins. It is triggered when you get one or more wild reels. The payouts are first awarded for the existing wins. Then the wild reels are held fixed and the other reels spun again once for free. Payouts are again awarded. If any of the reels spun again have another wild symbol then the process repeats. There are no amounts taken from the players for the respins and the respins are at the same paylines and bet as the triggering spin.
Dragon Orb has all the usual Realtime Gaming functionalities. There are the Major and Minor progressive jackpots. These can be randomly hit after any spin without a minimum bet requirement and without the need of getting a particular combination of symbols on the reels. You also have speed control and auto play.
