While dragons always add a dimension of mysticism and fantasy to slots that include them, it’s even better when you can see them in fire-breathing action. Ainsworth gives you exactly that with its 5×3, 30 pay-line Asian-themed Action Dragons online slot, featuring expanded wilds and an extra bonus during the free spins round that includes sticky, expanded multiplier wilds.
While these dragons might seem menacing, you’ll look forward to seeing them in action on winning pay-lines.

How Action Dragons slot could improve
While Action Dragons offers exciting gameplay features, we wish it had these improvements:
- Higher pays for Lucky Multiplier wins: The lower pay rates on the Lucky Multiplier paytable negate the advantage of the multipliers.
- Higher pays for free spins symbols: The free spins bonus round also uses an alternate paytable that lowers wins.
- Bigger payouts: Other slots have bigger maximum wins.

Bonus and jackpots for Action Dragons (Rating of 3/5)
The bonus features of Action Dragons involve those menacing, fire-breathing dragon wilds that you’ll continue hoping will pop up.
The animated dragon wilds breathe fire when part of a winning pay-line and appear on reels three, four, and five during the main game in single positions, double-stacked, or expanded to full-reel length.
Three or more scatters awards 10 free spins, with dragon wilds appearing on reels two, three, and four. While there are no scatters to retrigger additional spins, the Lucky Multiplier scatter only appears during free spins. The bonus round also has no card symbols and has some alternate symbols.
Lucky Multiplier bonus spins
When the green Lucky Multiplier scatters appear simultaneously on reels one and five, you receive three Lucky Multiplier spins. A special locked, expanded dragon wild appears on reel three that breathes a fireball containing a multiplier of 2x on the first spin, 3x on the second, and 5x on the third. The regular dragon wild symbols only appear on reels two, four, and five during the Lucky Multiplier spins.
The green symbol is the highest-paying pay-line symbol, paying 300 times your line bet for five-of-a-kind during the main game. A full screen of green symbols during the main game pays 300 times your total bet. The free spins and Lucky Multiplier feature have separate payables that pay lower amounts.
While the expanded wilds and fire-breathing animation are great features, the alternate payables take a bite out of the bonus rounds.
Action Dragons graphics and visuals (Rating of 3/5)
The reel set of Action Dragons sits on a jade background that seems to depict clouds of smoke. The the card symbols and Asian-related symbols are decent, although not as detailed and artistic as graphics on other modern slots. The one aspect that really stands out is how the animated dragon wilds breathe fire when part of a pay-line. It looks especially awesome when you have several expanded wilds in a row spewing fire all over the reel set.
Action Dragons gameplay (Rating of 3/5)
While the gameplay of Action Dragons is easy to understand because each feature is clearly announced, the thrill of seeing the dragon wilds in action starts to fade due to the low payouts during the bonuses. Although this aspect may make the main game more thrilling, the slot would be more fun to play with a consistent paytable that gave bigger wins when the multiplier wilds appear.
Overall rating for Action Dragons by Ainsworth (Rating of 3/5)
Action Dragons is a fun slot due to the animated dragons setting your wins on fire and because of the overall game experience. However, it seems almost pointless to add a multiplier feature that uses a paytable with payouts so low that you could win more during the main game without a multiplier. Regardless, it’s worth giving Action Dragons a try for yourself to see if it becomes one of your favorites. Considerig the pros and cons, we give Action Dragons a rating of 3/5.
