Before we get into the details of this fantasy-themed May 2019 release from Stormcraft Studios and Microgaming, we have to take a second to step back and applaud how beautiful it looks. We review many online slots here at Rose Slots, and this is among the best-looking we’ve ever seen. It has all the best features of 2019 design, and animations slick and smooth enough to appear on a television show. It’s a fantastic effort.

Dragon Shard Developer - Stormcraft Studios

Stormcraft is yet another smaller online slots development studio who have formed a partnership with Microgaming to bring their slots to a worldwide audience. Based in South Africa, Stormcraft came together in 2016 from a field of long-standing industry professionals with years of slot design experience and business expertise.

The comparisons that can be made between this slot and 'Game of Thrones' may have an explanation - it was Stormcraft who created the official slot based on the television show. Other major successes they've had a hand in include Immortal Romance and Thunderstruck II Online Slot. Big ideas and big concepts seem to be very much Stormcraft's thing- on their website they state that they're devoted to 'crafting legendary game experiences.' For that reason, we can probably rule out the idea of them ever making slots aimed at the traditional marker.

If you find yourself thinking that some of the element of Dragon Shard feel a little familiar while you’re playing, that’s because it’s been built on the same engine that Stormcraft used to make the steampunk-themed slot Fortunium UK Slot, so it amounts to a much better-looking version of the same slot. If you can’t borrow from yourself, though, who can you borrow from?

With that being said, let's talk about the theme! It's not uncommon for online slots to take inspiration from popular culture, and there hasn't been a bigger influence on television culture during the past few years than the HBO series' Game of Thrones.' We don't want to say that Dragon Shard is completely inspired by 'Game of Thrones,' but if this slot had been called 'Game of Chairs,' it wouldn't have been any less subtle about where its ideas came from. There's an 'Ice King,' a 'Fire Queen,' dragons everywhere, and even epic orchestral theme music in the background.

The background of Dragon Shard is a fairytale land of mountains, lakes, and ruins, all of which is superbly well drawn. To the left is a big red button called 'Win Booster,' which we'll come back to when we discuss the bonus features, and then we have the reels themselves. They're a big 5x5 set, allowing us plenty of space for winning combinations to be formed. There are 40 to aim for, and when they do land, they can be large ones thanks to the way that the symbols - especially he more valuable character symbols - land in stacks.

If we give the symbols our full attention, we’ll find that the four low values are represented by playing card suits, each in a different color. We then have a crystal, a blue ice dragon, a fiery red dragon, and then the Ice King and the Fire Queen. The King and Queen stack five high whenever they land, and all other symbols stack in piles of two.

You’ll also find a wild symbol to play with in Dragon Shard, and it comes in the shape of the slot’s logo. It can land anywhere on the reels, and it replaces every base game symbol apart from the scatter to help you form winning combinations. The scatter comes in the shape of a dragon’s eye, and opens up access to the bonus features. Whereas most slots need you to land at least three scatters to get any kind of payout, in Dragon Shard you’ll win something just for finding two of them - albeit only a small sum. There’s another type of symbol that lands with pleasing regularity too - but we’ll explain that in full as we move on to look at the bonus features!

Dragon Shard Slot Features

Dragon Shard looks like a slot that might be packed full of bonus features, but it actually only has one bonus game, plus a couple of extra features which can make the slot both more fun to play and more profitable for you. We’ll start by looking at that extra symbol we just mentioned.
During base gameplay, you may find that a stacked pile of question mark symbols lands on the reels. They can be green or gold, and they're Mystery Symbols. When the reels stop spinning, green mystery symbols will reveal a matching set of any of the base game symbols, including the wilds. The gold mystery symbols will reveal only high values or wilds, and therefore are much more useful. On top of that, any winning combination created using a symbol that comes from a gold mystery box can be paid right to left as well as left to right.

If you land three or more scatters, you’ll gain access to the Free Spins feature. No matter how many scatters you trigger the round with you'll get ten free spins, but the rewards get better the more scatter symbols are involved. For three scatters, you're guaranteed one full reel of matching mystery symbols on each spin. Four four, you'll get two mystery reels, and for all five you get three. As all of the symbols revealed by the mystery symbols will match, you don't need us to tell you how valuable and plentiful wins will become for having three reels full of them! Each time another scatter symbol appears during free spins, you'll receive one more spin.

You'll recall us mentioning that big red 'Win Booster' button to the left-hand side of the reels. If you press that, then all wins in Dragon Shard will pay right to left as well as paying left to right. Not only that, but the green mystery symbols will be eliminated from the slot, meaning that you'll only ever get wild or high-values when the contents of the boxes are revealed. The trade-off for this is that your stake is doubled whenever you're using the button, which makes it one for the high-rollers.

Dragon Shard is an incredibly attractive slot that will be a big hit with fans of 'Game of Thrones,' and fans of fantasy-themed slots in general. The Win Booster is an intriguing way of making the slot more rewarding if you're willing to pay for it, and the mystery reels are a great addition, too.
