- A slot that lets you change things up, at a cost
- Activate the Booster in order to unlock more features
- Can pay out well and lets you change how the game plays
Dragon Shard slot is a game that gives you, the player, the chance to change things up by activating the Win Booster. This has a few different effects in the game which can prove very valuable, but it does come at a cost.
Before we get into that, let’s talk about the design. There are 5 reels here with 5 rows each and it certainly grabs your attention. There’s a nice background and good graphics, and although it might not be the most exciting slot we’ve ever seen, it’s pretty good nonetheless. All you need to do is get a win from left to right (or perhaps both ways as I’ll explain shortly) using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts or Spades (lowest value)
- White Shard
- Blue or Red Dragon
- Fire Queen or Ice King
- Scatter (highest value)
Note that the Fire Queen and Ice King symbols are stacked 5 symbols high. The Wild symbol in Dragon Shard slot is not only valuable, but substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol.

Dragon Shard Slot Bonuses and Features
Win Booster. You’ll notice on the side of the reels a button called the win booster. You can use this to boost the mystery symbols and paylines. For instance, the regular mystery symbol can reveal either a Wild symbol, a high value symbol or a low value symbol. Boosted, the mystery symbol will only reveal Wild symbols or high value symbols. Without the boost, paylines pay only from left to right, but when boosted, they pay from left to right and right to left. Naturally there is a cost to the Win Booster, so bare it in mind.
Free Spins Bonus. Apart from the Win Booster, this is the main feature of the game. It’s triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels to give you 10 free spins. Furthermore, mystery reels appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 which can help you get some good wins. How many you get depends on how many Scatter symbols triggered the Bonus. 3 just gets you 1 mystery reel, 4 gets you 2 and 5 gets you all 3. If you do manage to get 3 mystery reels you can almost be certain of some big payouts with the Win Booster on. Lastly, if you land any more Scatter symbols during the Bonus, you’ll give given 1 additional free spin.
Dragon Shard slot from Stormcraft Studios is one of their best games to date in my opinion. It’s fairly simple in that the only reel Bonus is the Free Spins Bonus, but the Win Booster makes things very interesting and can prove very valuable. Naturally, it does come at a cost and if you’re unfortunate to not trigger the Bonus while it’s activate, you’ll notice your money disappearing quite quickly even with pays in both directions. I think it’s a fun game though and worth checking out, I’d say it’s medium to high variance depending on how you play it.
