Water Dragons Slots Game Rules

In Chinese legend, the koi fish was revered as a symbol of advancement and worldly wealth because any koi capable of climbing a waterfall would transform into a powerful dragon.  When you play Water Dragons™ slots, you have the same chance to achieve wealth and prosperity beyond your wildest dreams. Collect pearl symbols to turn Koi symbols wild and rack up the winnings when you earn a Free Spins Bonus to enjoy a dragon-sized payout!


How to Bet in Water Dragons


Before you can win with Water Dragons™ you must first know how to bet:


  • The game features 30 total paylines
  • LINE BET displays the current bet per line shown in currency. Use the left arrow (-) to decrease bet per line and the right arrow (+) to increase it
  • LINES indicates the number of paylines being played. Use the left arrow (-) to decrease the number of paylines played and the right arrow (+) to increase
  • SPIN submits your bet and spins the reels


Game Rules for Water Dragons™


  • To earn a payout, all line win symbols must appear on a played line and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far left reel
  • Only the highest earned payout is awarded for each payline
  • Line wins are multiplied by the line bet on the wining line
  • Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet
  • Coinciding wins on different paylines are added together
  • Scatter wins are independent from payline wins, and these are also added to the total payout
  • Wins are shown in currency
  • Bonus symbol appears in columns 2, 3, and 4 only
  • Wild symbol appears in columns 2, 3, 4 and 5 only
  • Pearl symbol appears in column 5 only in the bonus
  • Regardless of bet size, there is an award cap on any single transaction
  • A transaction includes the results of the Free Spins Bonus, plus whatever outcome launched the bonus
  • The bonus will end once the award cap has been hit. See pay table for details


Your Guide to Free Bonus Spins


With Bonus Spins, your bets pay out bigger and better. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you get 3 bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the middle three reels (2,3 and 4), you will trigger the Free Spins Bonus
  • The bonus starts with 15 free spins and features super-rich reels
  • If you get 3 bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the middle three reels, you will retrigger the bonus for another 15 spins
  • The bonus can be retriggered multiple times for a maximum of up to 225 free spins!
  • When a Pearl symbol appears on the fifth reel during a free spin, that Pearl symbol is accumulated into the next available ladder position
  • When three Pearl symbols are accumulated, the Red Koi symbol becomes wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 for that spin and any remaining free spins
  • Every additional set of three Pearls upgrades an additional Koi symbol:
    • 3 Pearls: the Red Koi Symbol becomes wild on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5
    • 6 Pearls: the Spotted Koi Symbol becomes wild on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5
    • 9 Pearls: the Gold Koi Symbol becomes wild on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5
    • 12 Pearls: the Blue Koi Symbol becomes wild on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5
    • The amount of pearls that can be collected maxes out at 12, but the Pearl symbol remains wild
  • Once the bonus ends, the amount of accumulated pearls resets to zero
  • The bet in the bonus is the same as what was staked on the reel spin that triggers the bonus


Your Guide to the Auto Spin Feature


  • Auto Spin plays the game automatically for a selected number of spins at the current selection of line and bet
  • To use this feature, select your desired number of lines and your line bet and press the AUTO SPIN button to choose how many spins to play
  • Auto Spin will continue for its specified duration or until the STOP button is pressed, a bonus is triggered or your balance is insufficient to spin again
  • Auto Spin is only available in approved jurisdictions


Graphics Options


  • BEST mode - Graphics look best, but performance may suffer
  • HIGH mode (default) - Optimal graphics and performance setting
  • MEDIUM mode - Lower quality but increased performance
  • LOW mode - Degraded graphics, but smoothest animation performance is achieved even on slower computers


Expected Payback


  • Each and every game outcome is completely independent
  • The odds of getting any particular outcome are always the same and do not vary based on prior outcomes, bet size, balance size, time of day, day of week, etc
  • If the top award is won on a given spin, the chances of winning the top award on the next spin are exactly the same
  • Likewise, prior losses do not change future odds
  • The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of spins by numerous players over an extended period of time
  • The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction
  • The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback that may be experienced
