Game of the Week – Fire Dragon

Fire Dragon is a newer online pokie from Real Time Gaming. This game features martial-arts film superstar Jackie Chan in a somewhat campy kung-fu themed video pokie game.

This game features a good mix of pay symbols, a free spins feature, and a progressive jackpot. If you’re a fan of Jackie Chan or this genre of pokies, keep reading to learn more about this game.

Feels Like a Campy Jackie Chan Movie

When we saw that Jackie Chan was featured in this game, we were skeptical. Upon playing the game, we can say that this game was surprisingly enjoyable. Before playing, realize that this isn’t meant to be a serious take on martial arts or Kung Fu.

Fire Dragon Pokie - Main Game

Instead, this game is more like one of Chan’s successful comedies. The background music sounds like something you’d find in a classic Kung Fu flick but the graphics and backdrop make it feel more like Kung Pow! Enter the First.

When you score a win with the Jackie Chan wild, you get some classic Kung Fu battle sounds. The video graphics on this game are nothing special and could have been better considering they had Chan featured in the game. As a whole, it was still an enjoyable experience.

Balanced Mix of Pay Symbols

Like many Real Time Gaming pokies, Fire Dragon works on the credit system for their payouts. This game has a solid mix of lower and higher-paying symbols. Royals serve as lower-paying symbols. Like many RTG games, you will not make a profit on single line wins with the Royals.

Fire Dragon Pokie - Lower Symbol Payouts

Higher paying symbols in this game include a dog, jeep, female fighter, and a boss. The majority of the symbols will produce a profit on a single line win.

Fire Dragon Pokie - Higher Symbol Payouts

Jackie Chan serves as the wild for this game and substitutes for everything except for the scatter. Jackie Chan is oversized in this game and when his entire symbols is showing, it covers two blocks of a reel. It is also a paying symbol when three or more appear on a payline. Hit five on a payline and get 3,000 credits.

Amazon Free Spins

The ninja mask serves as the scatter for this pokie. When you land three on the board, you unlock the Amazon Free Games feature. If you unlock the game, you will get 10 free spins.

Fire Dragon does not feature a multiplier or any extra bonus features for the Amazon Free Spins bonus, but the number of spins is higher than some bonus games on other RTG pokies.

Fire Dragon Pokie - Free Games Win

We were able to hit this bonus relatively quickly but our free spins only produced a return of about 9x our bet. A bit later we hit the bonus a second time for a win of about 8x our bet. Your results will vary.

Perfect for All Sized Bankrolls

Fire Dragon does not force you to play max credits every spin. You can choose to play from 1 to 20 lines, giving you greater control over how much you bet every spin.

Also, you can bet between .01 and .25 per line. Playing max lines and credits, you can bet between .20 and $5 per spin. While this may not be ideal for ultra-high rollers, the majority of players should enjoy this game.

Random Progressive Jackpot

This game is also a progressive jackpot pokie. The jackpot is triggered randomly and can be triggered after any spin. There are not qualifiers for hitting the jackpot, so a player betting .20 per spin has just as much chance of hitting the jackpot as one betting $5 per spin.

The jackpot for this game is on the smaller side. When testing the game, it was just over $5,000. While not the biggest jackpot we’ve seen, it is still a nice win, especially if you’re playing lower stakes.

Fire Dragon an Enjoyable Low to Mid Variance Video Pokie

Real Time Gaming does not publish the RTP for their games, but from our play, Fire Dragon seems to be on the lower to medium variance end of the spectrum. We do like that we were able to unlock the free games bonus multiple times during our testing.

If you’re a fan of old-school Kung-Fu movies or Jackie Chan comedies, then you should check this game out. While it is going to dazzle you with a ton of amazing graphics, it is still a fun game with a decent bonus game and a small progressive jackpot.
