15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win Slots

We must admit that 15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win is a meaty title for a slot game. It's a long one, certainly, so how does the game itself stack up against that? We wanted to find out more, and while we can reveal there is a lot of gold involved here, there is much more to tell you in the review that follows.

Who is the developer for the game?

The title comes from Booongo, a familiar name to many and one that you'll find at plenty of casinos.

Demo gaming is possible

This means you're able to test the slot before you decide whether you'd like to play the real version.

What's the theme?

Does it really involve dragons and pearls? There are indeed dragon-style faces appearing on the reels. With pots filled with golden coins, ones with a square hole in the middle, the Oriental theme is obvious just moments after you first see the game.

Our take on the design of 15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win

The golden theme flows throughout each part of the game. There's no background, but we hardly noticed. There are glowing discs appearing on the reels as well, each offering an amount… and we'll talk more about those shortly. Even though there is a lot of gold around, splashes of red and other colors also make it onto the reels.

How to play the 15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win slot game

If you were expecting five reels, you won't be disappointed. The pearls appear in multiple colors, and we'll come to those in a moment. The wild can't be missed though, as it is the black and white yin yang symbol, although it does also receive a WILD label. This subs for everything apart from the scattered red pot filled with gold coins. It doesn't replace the bonus symbol either, which is an orange pearl.

Paylines in play

A message at the side of the reels confirms there are 25 lines in action. They're all fixed, meaning the player needs to cover them all on each spin.

Do fixed lines make the bets expensive?

No, since the cheapest wager is a quarter, making the line bet as little as one cent per go. Using the plus button allows you to check the remaining bet amounts you could use, reaching the maximum of $40.

The info button takes you through to the paytable

This offers six pages of information, ideal to read prior to playing any of the game for the first time. There are quite involved instructions, but all becomes clear with a few spins of the demo game.

Bonus game potential in 15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win slots

The orange pearl must land in at least six positions to lock in the bonus. The triggering pearls lock onto the reels and you receive six respins of all the remaining positions. You'll only get orange, blue, and green pearls on the reels in this round, along with +1 logos. Any +1 logo grants another respin.

The grand jackpot can be won during this round, for a fixed 5,000x your bet. To do this, you must land 15 bonus symbols to complete the grid. If this doesn't happen, you'll collect a prize worth the total of all the symbols shown once you reach the end of your respins.

Does this mean the game doesn't offer any free spins?

Aha, this is where things do get impressive, because you can still earn some free games in this slot. Find three of the scattered pots of gold coins anywhere on the middle three reels in a spin of the base game and you've got eight free spins. The lower-valued symbols featuring letters and numbers do not appear during these spins either.

RTP details don't appear

We checked the paytable and the common rules for the game and neither revealed the likely return to player for the slot game.

Our rating for 15 Dragon Pearls Hold and Win slots

The game has lots to offer, and with those rich golden graphics, it always looks sensational as well. If you're eager to play, we think you're looking at a 7.5 out of 10 slot game here.

Are you looking for the jackpot?

This looks likely to be the top prize for the slot game, coming in at 5,000x your bet if you're fortunate enough to reach it.

Practice play helps the game become easier to understand

We tried this version and hit the bonus round before too long. It made the instructions for that part of the slot much easier to understand, as we could sit back and watch what happened.

You can also play for real at casinos featuring Booongo games

You can try the practice one first, of course, but if you do decide to play the real one, make sure you look for a welcome offer first.

Mobile access is cool too

No need to sit in front of your computer to play this one. You're always free to try it on a tablet or smartphone for the Android and iOS fans among you.
