Dragon's Pearl Slot Machine

Dragons, reverberating gongs, and battle-ready warriors transport us back to (a generic) ancient China in Novomatic's Dragon's Pearl slot.

Everything about this game ties in to a strong theme and focuses on fun. With bold, clean graphics and atmospheric music this is classic Novomatic - a standard 5x3 reel, 20-payline slot with a variety of bonus options.

As with so many successful Novomatic games the payouts feel generous and frequent and the action is well-paced. Whilst not necessarily innovative you feel in confident hands and assured of a good ride.

How Can I Play?

Whilst you can play this classic online slot elsewhere, Bell Fruit Casino is the natural home of Novomatic games and would be my destination of choice. Its strong, HD colours and clean, uncluttered screens mean you can focus solely on the game in hand.

It offers very easy instant play options for desktop, smartphone and tablet without having to set up an account first. You have the option to trial for free with 1000 credits or you can choose to set up an account and play for money.

Earn Up To 40,000 For Some Medium Volatility

Symbols for an ancient Chinese theme naturally include a dragon, a Chinese warrior, an ancient scroll, a treasure chest and an ancient Chinese bell suspended from an A-shaped frame. A-10 symbols (in a font that's not actually Chinese lettering, but what we've come to accept is 'Chinese-style') make up the reels.

The variance between payouts for these symbols ranges from 40,000 for 5x dragons to 2,000 for 5x 10s, making this slot fairly med-high in volatility.

The Wilds are a golden dragon's egg and they can substitute for all symbols, including scatters, with the only exception being the bonus symbol.

Look Out For the Bonus Pink Pearls

Scatters are a pearlescent pink pearl clasped by a golden dragon's paw. Scatters don’t just trigger a bonus round here - they score in their own right and there's a scatter win multiplier too. If you score a Scatter with a Wild your pearls double or triple, increasing your win to up to 30,000.

Additionally there's a bonus symbol - a large golden gong (with correspondingly dramatic sound-effect!). Three of these bonus gongs will trigger 10 free games in which all wins are triple multiplied.

Of course, on top of all this if you're playing at Bell Fruit Casino every win triggers a Gamble option. It's a standard quick-fire double-or-bust on the red/black playing cards.

Dragon's Pearl's winning options are good and all the additional bonus/ multiplier features serve to flavour a very classic format with a little va-va-voom.

If you like Dragon's Pearl…

…try Legends of Greece by Saucify. In very similar 5x3 reel, 20-payline format with strong, simple graphics this is a classic offering, and one of the more sedate online slots from a developer which is increasingly making a name as an innovator. It's perfect for fans of classical legends and Greek mythology all symbols feature Greek gods and legendary characters or objects.

There are no big frills here, with two different Scatters offering bonus features. Score 3 Perseus Scatters and wins are multiplied; score 3 Medusa scatters anywhere on the reels and you can trigger (and re-trigger) up to 20 free spins, which are also multiplied.

If you fancy moving away from the theme of history why not try the realm of fantasy- meets-nature in the frozen depths of Arctic Treasure by Playtech. It's a deeply pleasing game and with its calming soundtrack and beautifully drawn graphics covered in a mystical blue tinge it has a zen-like quality.

Chase symbols of the Snow Queen with glistening tiaras, polar bears, arctic wolves and arctic owls amongst the ice caps. However, the big treasures lie in the form of the Scatters and bonus: three kayak Scatters will trigger free spins and multipliers which can be retriggered infinitely (so Playtech claim).

Finally, scoring a bonus crystal on Reels 1 or 5 takes you to an additional screen where you select your bonus wins from amongst the cave of crystals.


Dragon's Pearl nestles comfortably mid-range in the Novomatic canon. It's a great example of the developer's strong graphics, well-paced action and classic gameplay with medium, regular wins. It's not boasting any claims to be their Great Wall of China, but it gets a solid gong of approval in the entertainment stakes.
