Get a taste of the orient without leaving home when you play Crazy Dragon, the eastern themed jackpot slot from Real Time Gaming. Styled like a traditional single pay line 3 reel casino slot, Crazy Dragon also has an additional feature, a free spins bonus triggered by the lucky dragon symbols on the reels. The slot has a fixed coin value of $1 and three coins must be played to qualify for the free spin bonus.
To win Crazy Dragon’s progressive jackpot, the objective is simple – accumulate 100 or more free spins on a single bet. Free spins are awarded when different parts of the lucky dragon appear on the various reels. The head of the dragon is on reel one, the body on reel two and the tail on reel three. If just the dragons head appears 2 free spins are awarded, the dragons head and body awards 5 free spins and the complete dragon 20 free spins.
During the free spins, if more dragon combinations appear, the free spins are added to those already won, and if the accumulated total of free spins during the bonus round reaches 100, the jackpot is awarded. There is no limit to the amount of times that the free spins bonus can be retriggered, and the total amount of spins that have been won during the round are displayed on the red total re-spins counter on the right of the screen. To qualify for re-spins the various dragon parts must be in the correct order from left to right – for example the head and the body of the dragon would qualify for five free spins but just the body and the tail would not.
The black and white Yin Yang symbol is wild, and substitutes for all other symbols except parts of the dragon. There are only four other additional symbols on the reels – the koi carp paying 3000 credits, the Chinese firecracker paying 300 credits and the bonsai tree and the pagoda which pay 30 and 6 credits respectively.
Crazy Dragon is a system wide slot, meaning it is linked via network to all other Real Time Gaming casinos and they all contribute to the jackpot fund. The minimum starting value for the jackpot is $2000, with an average progressive jackpot win being in the region of $12,000 to $15,000. The progressive jackpot is won approximately once every six to seven weeks, but recent trends have suggested a move towards longer periods between payouts and bigger wins. At the time of writing (December 2006) the last two jackpots won have both been in excess of $30,000
What Crazy Dragon lacks in sophistication it certainly makes up for in charm; the frequent free spins not only make it fun to play, they also help to stretch your bank roll whilst waiting for the big win to hit.
