Microgaming takes flight with Dragon Shard. Elemental forces clash over the ancient and powerful Dragon Shard in the latest fantasy themed online slot machine developed exclusively for Microgaming by Stormcraft Studios, the creative team behind hit titles Agent Jane Blonde Returns and Fortunium.
Dragon Shard is a five by five reel, 40-payline slot packed with trailblazing features and stunning visuals, fully optimized for a premium portrait game play experience on mobile. Journeying through a mythical realm, players can scale up the rewards with the mighty Win Booster, and uncover hidden wonders beneath the game’s Mystery Symbols and in free spins with Mystery Reels.
Battling to claim the arcane powers of the Dragon Shard, the Fire Queen and Ice King can appear throughout the game as high value stacked symbols, while all other shimmering icons, including the King and Queen’s fearsome dragons, are double stacked. The potential rewards escalate when super stacked Mystery Symbols roll in to join the fray, revealing a wild or any low or high symbol, and giving players the chance to fill the reels with five-of-a-kind wins.
Unleashing the strength of the Win Booster causes Mystery Symbols to transform into only wilds and high-paying symbols, and empowers all winning lines to pay both ways. Engaging this fired up feature increases the player’s total bet by 100%, with selection from the base game carrying over into free spins.
Landing three or more scatters conjures up the elemental sorcery of the Dragon Shard, coating the ethereal realm beyond the reels in ice and awarding 10 free spins. Depending on how many scatters land, the frosty bonus features up to three Mystery Reels. Each loaded with infinite stacks of Mystery Symbols, Mystery Reels are activated randomly between reels two, three and four on every spin. Additional spins are awarded when further scatters land during the bonus feature, extending the adventure for those traveling through this epic and immersive world.
Jagoda Barber, Head of Games at Microgaming, comments: “Dragon Shard is another exceptional addition to Microgaming’s innovative slot portfolio from the talented team at Stormcraft Studios. They have realized a visually and aurally immersive world of sword and sorcery, which particularly shines in portrait mode on mobile. The game’s feature set is just as deep and rich as its presentation, with the Win Booster™ further enhancing the power of Mystery Symbols and Mystery Reels™ in free spins, which offers excellent win potential for any player lucky enough to land five scatters entering the bonus, particularly if the Win Booster™ is enabled.”
Terence Igesund, Executive Producer at Stormcraft Studios, adds: “Crafting the magical world of Dragon Shard has been an immensely exciting endeavor for us at Stormcraft Studios. We carefully integrated successful and inventive game mechanics with a relatable fantasy theme, completing it with beautifully rendered visuals and an epic soundtrack. We’re looking forward to welcoming players into the magical realm of the Fire Queen and Ice King, and providing them with a thoroughly entertaining gaming experience.”
