Strategy & Tips
Land the Wolf Wild on the first reel (notice that the first reel is framed with a golden cage), and the Wild will become sticky, triggering a respin. The cage moves to the subsequent reel. If you manage to land a Wild on the second reel, the process is repeated. Players may trigger up to 4 successive respins, adding Wilds to all 5 reels.
Trigger the Free Spins feature by landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters. Depending on the number of Scatters landed, players will get 6, 8, or 12 free spins. During the feature, every Wild that appears on reels 2-4 becomes sticky and remains on its position.
Land a Special Symbol on reel 5 to get one of three modifiers and 2 extra freebies. The Fallen Angel feature will add a Wild on reel 1, which becomes sticky. It will move one position down the reel during each free spin, until it falls off the reel.
If you get Symbol Upgrade from the Special Symbol, the lowest Monster symbol on the reels will be upgraded to DIO. This continues until all Monster symbols on the reels are upgraded to DIO. Once that happens, DIO will defeat the Dragon.
The third modifier you may get from the Special Symbol is Wild Multiplier. It will add a 1x-5x multiplier on a random Sticky Wild on one of the three central reels.
Punters who are not prepared to enter the Dragon’s castle should know that the game can be played from a safe distance. The 2022 release is playable across all devices. It fits perfectly to smaller screens and loses none of its quality when played on handheld gadgets.
