Based on the Asian zodiac, the game celebrates the year of the Wood Dragon – an event that only comes around once every 60 years – and is typically associated with growth, harmony and nature. These qualities are represented in a background of rolling green hills and cloud-topped mountains, with the game’s unique icons being made of symbols of good luck including gold coins and hand fans.
The three famous years of the Wood Dragon – 1904, 1964 and 2024 – also appear among the slot’s high-value icons, while the mystical creature itself features as a wild that can substitute for any regular symbol. With wins that pay from left-to-right and right-to-left, the game is a high variance title that saves its biggest wins for the bonus feature, which is triggered whenever three or more scatters appear.
Whenever this happens, players will receive between five and 15 free spins based on the number of triggering symbols, with all wins then being subject to a randomly-chosen multiplier of the total stake! Wood Dragon is the perfect title to celebrate this rare and momentous event.
Speaking ahead of the launch of Wood Dragon, Boldplay head of design Marcus Taylor said: “In Chinese astrology, the year of the Wood Dragon only comes around once every 60 years – so what better way to mark the occasion than by releasing an all-new slot imbued with the qualities of luck, prosperity and nature?
“With its Asian zodiac theme and a free spins bonus round that can add massive multipliers, Wood Dragon is the perfect game to get Chinese New Year off to a winning start and we’re sure it’s going to be an incredibly popular addition at all casinos that feature Boldplay’s slots.”
