Many have embarked on the quest to find the fabled treasure of the Ancient Dragon Emperor - but none have ever returned. Legend says the Dragon Emperor, despite beings thousands of years old, still lives in the Snow Mountains where he is protected by his Golden Dragon – whilst others say once you've entered this magical place - you'll never want to leave.
Your quest in this 5 reel Aristocrat slot game is to find the Dragon Emperor's treasure which is believed to comprise of priceless jade artefacts and the Dragon Pearls; a matching set of 5 pearls that have been encased in the golden dragon claws.
Successful players will also be rewarded with a plethora of bonuses in the form of a Scattered Bonus, Wild Bonus, Free Games Bonus and a Reel Shuffle Feature.
The game has a set 243 ways to win, though there are several different ways to stake the lines to suit slot players of all standards and bank balances.
The snow-capped mountains are truly mesmerizing and we can only hope that it is indeed the beauty of the treasure's surroundings that has stopped previous explorers returning.
Many lettered symbols have been noticed on the trail to the Dragon Emperor's lair, and these are believed to be clues to the whereabouts of the treasure. Pick them up as you venture forward as they come with their own reward of between 5 and 150 times your stake for finding 3 to 5 matching symbols.
If the clues lead you to the Dragon Emperor's lair, then keep your eyes peeled for one of the East's most prized substances - jade. Jade pendants and small Jade chests can be found on the reels and for hitting 5 of each you will be paid up to 350 and 500 times your stake respectively. You may also find the fabled Dragon Pearls and the full-set of 5 will fetch 800 times your stake.
If you successfully collect the treasure you will soon be bestowed with bonuses including Golden Square Scatters, 5 of which have the power to multiply your total bet by 40. Three or more Golden Square symbols will also trigger the Free Games Feature, with three triggering 7 free games, four triggering 10 free games, and five triggering 15 free games.
Golden Dragon Wild symbols have the power to substitute for all other symbols except the Golden Squares to create a variety of winning payout lines, whilst they will also appear on reel 5 during free games to increase winnings. When three appear on reels 5 they will also trigger the Reel Shuffle Feature which will spin the reels once.
With so much priceless treasure to be found you could be fooled into thinking that the stakes for this adventure would be high - but you can actually play from as little as 0.3 coins a spin. There are a set 243 ways to win, which costs 30 coins a spin, but each coin can be given a value of between 0.01 coins and 2 coins. High-rollers can therefore enjoy a maximum bet of 60 coins a spin.
An epic adventure is backed-up with plenty of payouts and some great bonuses - so playing the Dragon Emperor could prove to be a right royal result!
