East Asia


8 Golden Dragon Challenge is a 5×3 reel slot with 10-paylines and a maximum win of up to x8,800 the player’s stake. 




96.01 per cent


Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. If the right number of matching combinations appear on the same spin, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x10 the player’s wager. 

Meanwhile, blue, green and red dragons depict the high value symbols, offering between x1 and x100 the chosen bet. 

Additionally, golden dragon scatters can drop into play on reels one, three and five, triggering the mini slot machine game mode if three land on the same turn. 


In the bonus game mode, players are presented with eight mini 3×3 slot machines that will spin one by one to reveal either dragon symbols or blocker symbols. 

Each mini slot machine that reveals at least one dragon symbol on every reel will provide a payout equal to the number of dragons revealed, multiplied by the player’s stake. 

However, any mini slot machines that do not reveal a dragon on every reel will lock and be removed from play, as each successful slot machine will perform another spin once all eight have completed the initial spin. 

The game mode continues until all mini slot machines reveal less than three reels with dragon symbols and become closed-off. 

As dragon symbols drop in on the mini slot machines in sizes of 1×3, if a dragon symbol falls entirely on the mini reel set, an envelope bonus feature will be activated. This reveals an instant cash prize from x2 to x10 the player’s bet, enhanced dependent on the number of full dragon symbols that landed on the mini reel sets. 

Each reel with one full dragon on will add a multiplier value of x1 to the instant prize, two full dragons will add x3 and three full dragons will add x8 to the multiplier value for the cash prize. 

Players can buy access to this mini slot machine feature for the price of x200 their stake, while being able to select the ante bet function to increase their chances of landing gold dragon scatters, which in turn increases their stake by 50 per cent – without impacting paytable prizes. 


Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, stated: “Dragons unlock the key to powerful rewards in our latest release while taking players on a mystical adventure. With potent and auspicious powers, various dragons adorn the reels and can trigger the game’s fast-paced mini slot machine bonus, where cash prizes can be scaled up to great heights. 

“Adding a deeper layer to the game is the thrilling envelope bonus, which can reveal instant cash prizes and exciting multipliers.”
