Dragon Born slot was the first BTG trademarked ‘Megaways’ game which preceded Queen Of Riches, Starquest, Bonanza and Extra Chilli. As with those games Dragon Born has the variable reels dynamic which means each of the six reels can display 2 to 7 rows and thus symbols appearing on each. This means on any spin you have a minimum of 64 and maximum of 117,649 ways to win with thousands of permuations in between.
The graphics are plain and simple with a landscape background which doesn’t really reflect any Oriental theme despite the dragon being in the title and also the high-paying symbol at 50x for a single way across all 6 reels and as with the other Megaways slots it pays for a mere 2-of-a-kind too. The remaining icons are the standard BTG fare of card values and red, green and blue gems for pays of 0.8 to 5x bet for all six.

The potential again lies with the possibilities the stacked symbols create should you get stacks on all the reels which could result in hundreds of ways on one spin. As with White Rabbit, Book Of Gods and Queen Of Riches a slow spin indicates a big win is going to drop in, although ‘big’ by BTG’s definition can be as little as 15x bet.
Dragon Born is a basic and quite simple game and has a format many with be familiar with. It pays left-to-right, has all-ways pays and one bonus round which in this case is of the free spins type. If you’ve played Bonanza you’ll know the purple-backed diamonds are the highest paying symbol but here on Dragon Born they only appear singly and form the game’s scatter of which you need 3 or more anywhere in view for the bonus. This will earn you 6 free spins, but 4 gains you 12, 5 gives 25 and if you are lucky enough to see all six then 50 free games are granted. Like Microgaming’s Break da Bank Again any single scatter appearing in the free games bonus will add one extra spin, with no limit.
Before we get to the bonus though, there are wilds to consider. As is typical of many BTG Megaways slots such as Starquest and Queen Of Riches they appear on all reels bar the first, only this time we can only get a maximum of 2 on any spin. They do though award a multiplier of 1 through to 7x so 49x is possible though I have never seen it for sure! As with Queen Of Riches they’ll usually be 3 or less with an occasional 4.
So we return to the free games and their enhancements. The first and best is the fact that you are now playing each spin on the full 6×7 117649 Megaways grid to increase the chances of those big combinations. You won’t see those stacked multiplying wilds now, but instead wilds can appear singly or in stacks of 2,3 or 4 on the last 5 reels which means their occurrence is far more frequent. You’ll be unlucky to see a free games round with no ‘heartstopper’ slowed spin for the big win or at least one or two extra spins via the diamonds. The maximum potential here is hard to figure but judging by the reels it would be possible to get at least 2 dragons or wilds on all 6 reels for 3200x bet and as these can occur in 3’s or 4’s on some reels, even more.
Dragon Born slot certainly has its fans amongst slotters but to get any decent play time for your bankroll you’ll need to see those slowed spins for the big wins in order to maintain your balance as most wins are quite small. The feature however is fairly frequent and although small returns are commonplace it is quite entertaining and can pay very well if you catch it right. The game lacks some of the excitement of latter releases such as Bonanza and Danger High Voltage but nevertheless it’s straightforward and far less volatile which may appeal to some.
