With 243 ways to win this Dragon Dance slot gives you full control as you can spin every single reel individually.

Have you ever played the Bikini Party slot from Microgaming? If you have, you will have played Dragon Dance. This is the same slot, just with fewer bikini-laden ladies.

If that is your sorta thing, then jump right in.

It seems that Microgaming has jumped on the recent bandwagon of Oriental-themed slots. Not that we have any complaints about that.

It is just that there are ALOT of them out there; Imperial Palace by Play’n GO, Sakura Fortune by Quickspin and even Lucky Little Gods by Microgaming themselves.

It does look good, though. Nice and bright colours and the soundtrack is amazing (for a slot). No real complaints here, other than this Dragon Dance game is not that original in the theming department.

Don’t hit a win? No problem, re-spin the reels!

This Microgaming slot allows you to respin any reel you want.

You will have to pay for this privilege, and you must pay for each respin separately (it is not going to be cheap!), but it is a nice feature nonetheless.

We have used it plenty of times to try and score the last high paying symbol we need. We barely win using it, but it is nice nonetheless. Just ration your spins for catching some really good 5 of a kind wins.

We have seen some people fall into the trap of spending more on their re-spins than getting the last symbol is worth, so don’t do that. Couple of re-spins at the most; that’s all you really need.

The fact that this is a 243 ways to win slot means that you should nail them more often than you think you will.

We never recommend that you re-spin to get a third scatter. It is pointless and a waste of your money. This Microgaming slot free spins mode is wildly inconsistent, and you will be triggering it often enough anyway that you do not need to spend your cash on getting a third scatter.

And now for that Dragon Dance free spins mode

The biggest prizes are available when you trigger your free spins. We have walked away with a sizeable amount of cash when we have triggered them.

However, it is also worth pointing out that this feature is remarkably inconsistent. You will most likely walk away with barely enough money to afford a cup of coffee at your local Tim Hortons.

Triggering free spins in this Dragon Dance video slot seems to be easy. We averaged scoring one every 100 or so base game spins – a bit like in the Thunderstruck II slot.

It is always a treat when they pop up because you know that there is a chance you can make large sums of cash… even if you end up not doing so.

That 3x multiplier helps bring the wins

It takes three scatter symbols to trigger this feature. You will get 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier.

During your free spins, the ability to respin the reels will be locked. It would have been nice if it was not. We would have found this bonus feature to be a whole lot more useful.

You can trigger more free spins during the bonus round, but it is something which is barely going to happen for you.

We don’t think we have experienced it once in the 5 or 6 times we triggered the free spins mode just before we wrote this Dragon Dance review.

Is this Microgaming slot worth playing?

Sure.

Bikini Party is a fun slot. We are glad that Microgaming developed the same game with a slightly more palatable theme – certainly beats the trend after Girls With Guns Jungle Heat.

We love the fact that there is a bit of strategy built into the game when it comes to deciding whether you should pay for those additional respins or not. It does make the game more engaging.

However, we fear that people may end up spending more money than they need to simply because the feature is ‘there’.

If you are not good at bankroll management, then you should probably play something where you don’t have to think as much: Game of Thrones slot maybe?
