Dragon Island POKIE
This 5-reel 15-payline pokie is the first NetEnt’s title to feature the Win Both Ways model where winning combos count in both directions. The five dragons of five different elements (water, earth, fire, air and wood) dwell on the island named after them. Five of them will unleash the magic and pay you up to $25,000. The Golden Wild dragon who is a special guest on the reels has a multiplier of up to x8 applied to your winnings. In addition to that, you can win 50 free spins and capture the full benefits of what the pokie has to offer.

Through the semi-transparent reels, you can see a magnificent beautiful bay where high cliffs shoot up into the sky and where no foot may tread. This pristine nature is home for five kinds of dragons who are drawn very realistically. An Air Dragon, born in the clouds, pays out $1000 for five of a kind. An elegant Water Dragon awards $1500 for five. A mighty Wood Dragon crawling from the grass is going to grant you $2500 at max, while a fire-breathing Earth Dragon is more generous with $5000 for five of the same. But the most powerful is a Fire Dragon who pays out $12,500. Other regular symbols on the reels are standard playing cards 10 to A designed to resemble stone-cut figures. These low-paying symbols award up to $600.
A bet ranges between $0.15 and $75 with Win Both Ways mode inactive and between $0.30 and $150 if active.
Win Both Ways
As you are well aware, it is common for video pokies to count winning combos from leftmost to right. A certain number of the same symbols should be aligned on a payline beginning with reel 1 and continue running along that payline in order to produce a reward in accordance with the paytable. In pokies like the reviewed one, a combination is regarded as a win when it begins from reel 1 rightwards and/or from reel 5 leftwards. This incurs an important advantage that Win One Way pokies are lacking. If you have five of a kind on any bet line, the paytable award for that combo is twice as much. For example, five Fire Dragons pop up on any bet line. If the Win Both Ways mode is on, you are paid a huge $25,000 instead of just $12,500 that would have taken place if only left-to-right combos had counted.
Make sure you turned the Win Both Ways mode on, because it may be off by default. If a button at the bottom right corner of the game reads “Deactivated”, click it. Similarly, if it reads “Activated”, it’s OK and the mode is already active. If you opt to disengage the Win Both Ways design, all winning combinations will pay left to right only. Note that activation of this lucrative gaming option increases your total bet by x2.
Two wild symbols
The pokie features two wilds. A normal wild works when the Win Both Ways is off, while the Golden Wild helps you complete combos when you play both ways. The primary difference between them is that the Golden Wild has a multiplier of x2 to x8 applied to the wins where it substitutes. So you have one more incentive to push the related button and get Both Ways mechanic activated.
Three, four or five swelling volcano symbols trigger 10, 20 or 50 re-triggerable free spins when they occur in any place on the game board. Along with that generous bonus, you receive instantly x2 to x100 a total bet or up to $15,000 at the maximum stake. During free spins, an expanded wild slides into the screen on every spin and stops on a random reel, thus making the free spins even more rich and vibrant, especially if playing 50 free game rounds.
Dragon Island is a 5-reel pokie with 15 paylines and a rare Win Both Ways system that enhances the hit frequency of winning combinations. The pokie features 10 to 50 free spins, two wilds and the maximum payout of $25,000.
