Dragon Blast Pokies Logo

If you love dragon-themed pokies, then you need to check out Dragon Blast. It is the latest 5-Reel, 50 payline pokie from Genesis Gaming. The game features a fun, fast-paced dragon theme with some awesome prizes and a free spins feature that can prove to be extremely lucrative.

Dragon Blast Unleashes the Dragon’s Fury

Dragon Blast is the latest 50-payline pokies game from Genesis Gaming. The theme is based on a Chinese dragon that looks ready to unleash his fury at any point. The paytable is a simple one consisting of Royals, Chinese coins, pots of gold, magic lamps, and Chinese wilds.

Most symbols pay for three of a kind or greater while the magic lamp and pot of gold pays for 2 of a kind or better. The wilds also pay on two of a kind or better.

The graphics on this game are fantastic with an animated dragon that’s ready to unleash fury at any point.

While the base game looks awesome, the big draw for this game is the free spins feature. Let’s take a look at it.

Dragon Blast Free Spins

The Dragon Orb is the scatter for this game. If you land three or more on the board, you will trigger the Dragon Blast Free Spins game. However, if you trigger this feature with three or four scatters, you will get a respin to try and get the fifth orb. If you start with three orbs and catch the fourth orb, you will get another respin to try and catch the fifth orb.

Dragon Blast Respin


If this feature triggers with three scatters, the free spins game triggers with a second board and 5 free spins. When you collect four scatters, you get three boards and five free spins. Get luck and catch all five scatters and you will get 10 free spins on three boards. Each board serves as separate payouts.

When the boards launch, Reels 2, 3, and 4 will combine to create giant symbols. This reel will spin first and then Reel 1 and 5 will spin. This gives you a great chance for some big wins. Note that the Wild is also a giant symbol. Catching that symbol will guarantee a big win on that board.

Dragon Blast Free Spins

I was able to trigger this feature around 10 times, but I was playing at the manufacturer’s website. As such, I believe this is a case where the game was a bit rigged to give you an idea of how it plays. However, I still only managed to get four orbs about half the time and never got a fifth orb. The average win was around 20x my initial bet.

I’m going to say that the hit frequency for this feature will be a lot less at Australian online casinos. The manufacturer says that the hit frequency for the feature is medium, which means it will trigger more often than some games.

Dragon Blast Offers a 97% RTP and Medium Volatility

Overall, I really enjoyed playing Dragon Blast. The game has a solid base game and the Dragon Blast free games feature gives you a chance to score some big wins. While the feature frequency is listed as medium, don’t expect to hit it as frequently as I did. If you manage to hit it frequently, please leave a comment.

Dragon Blast Main Game 4

This game offers an RTP of 97% and medium volatility. Overall, this is one of the better games we’ve run across in a while, so it is definitely one you should play. Dragon Blast can be found at King Johnnie Casino, Wild Card City, and all online casinos in Australia offering Genesis Gaming pokies.
