Players can try out this game before placing real money bets which is an excellent idea because of the complex nature of the game and the different bonus options that it offers.

There are two scatter symbols in this game and one wild. The wild symbol is the dragon and he appears on all of the reels apart from reel 1. When the dragon does appear he can substitute for other symbols and in this way complete a payline. The two scatter symbols are represented by the dragon pearl and the dragon mountain. Both offer multiplying payouts. Two of the dragon pear symbols on screen reward players with 2x the coin bet placed, three of the dragon pearl symbols reward players with 3x the coin bet placed, four of the dragon pearl symbols reward players with 10x the coin bet placed and four of the dragon pearl symbols reward players with 888x the coin bet placed. The dragon mountain symbol rewards players with multiplying payouts when three and more appear on the screen. Three award the player 2x the coin bet placed, four award players with 5x the coin bet placed and five award players with 88x the coin bet placed.
These scatter symbols are also responsible for the free spins games. Three and more of the dragon mountain symbols award players 8 free spins and if an extra dragon mountain symbol appears during these free spins the player earns an extra 3 free spins. Each time a dragon mountain symbol appears on screen the multiplier value for the free spins increases with a maximum of 8x. During the free spins the wild dragon expands.
Three or more of the dragon pearl symbols also awards the player with 8 free spins and at the end of the free spins the pearl reveals a multiplier of anywhere from 3x up to 88x. If the value of the pearl is not reached during these free spins the Fucanglong feature is triggered. This gives players additional free spins with a multiplier of 1x up to 8x. Trying out this game in advance of placing real money bets does give the player a good idea of how to play teh game and also helps him to familiarize himself with the different features of the game and the characters and symbols that include a god of wealth, a dragon mother and multiple different dragon eggs.
