Dragon Pearls: A Look at the Game

Theme and plot of the story

Dragon Pearls are a form of premium tea that may be found in the real world. While brewing, the young leaves are wrapped and packed together to create a tiny ball, which unfolds as it comes into contact with the water. Dragon Pearls is a slot machine that takes a more literal meaning of the phrase and has reels that are crammed with stylized reproductions of traditional Chinese iconography.

Lots of coins with square holes in the center, golden trees and frogs, the Yin-Yang Wild sign, and of course dragons may be found on the coins.

It’s bright and eye-catching, and it takes a fresh approach to the typical slot motif of the pseudo-sinitic symbol.

Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.

The visuals have a really contemporary vibe to them. Although there is minimal 3D to it, it seems to be in high definition and quite smooth. Each of the symbols has the outstanding attribute of being detailed without being too cluttered, and much care has been taken to ensure that the gold and red color scheme does not come off as too gaudy.

Due to the fact that the music is suitably ambient and diverse, the repeated repeating of it will not drive you mad, as it does with certain other slot music. This song is backed with a very basic sound design that is both effective and almost undetectable in the background.


Dragon Pearls’ primary game is a five-reel, three-row slot with twenty-five paylines that can be played on any device.

Despite the lack of a gambling function, there are a number of fascinating bonuses to be earned (outlined below). These bonuses take the game from being a straightforward ‘click and win’ experience to something a bit more intriguing and entertaining.

Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.

The Wild symbol may be substituted for any other symbol with the exception of the Pearl symbol.

Three or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels will launch a free spins bonus round as well as awarding a cash reward to the player.

You will get 8 free spins as a result of the Free Spin bonus. If you strike another three Scatter symbols throughout the spins, you will be awarded an additional 8 spins. It is possible to remove the low-value Ace to Nine symbols from the game during the Free Spins bonus round.

The Bonus game will be triggered if you collect six or more Pearls. Any Pearls you collect in the Bonus game as well as the trigger spin are permanently locked in. If you strike a Pearl, you will get three further spins on the counter, and the counter will reset to three each time. Every Pearl is imprinted with a random number or phrase. At the conclusion of the Bonus, all of the numbers are put together to determine your payoff.

If you find a Pearl with the words Mini or Major written on it, you will be awarded the matching jackpot. If you manage to cover the full set of reels with Pearls, you will be awarded the Grand Prize.

Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance

The publisher does not give a way for the user to get their money back in this game. This is somewhat concerning, and we rarely recommend a slot if the return to player is not clear.

When we evaluated the site, it provided a variety of best that ranged from $0.25 to $/£/€0.25 per spin, with a maximum of $/£/€60.00 per spin. This is a bit tighter than others, but it should still be plenty for everyone with the smallest and largest of bankrolls.

There is a medium to high degree of volatility in this game. We enjoy high volatility slots, so this isn’t great for us, but it’s definitely not so low that we’d rule it out completely.


Dragon Pearls is a beautiful slot machine that performs well for its limited purpose.

The jackpots, in particular, may be of interest to a certain sort of gambler. Unfortunately, despite its many great characteristics, we are unable to recommend it, mostly owing to the absence of information on the game’s return to the player (RTP).

There’s a good reason why this isn’t one of the more well-known names in slots.
