With a charming Asian cultural theme , the 8 Golden Dragon Challenge is a fun slot to play at Stake Casino . If you’re unfamiliar with online slot games, look at our online casino guide for tips and learn how to play slots before spinning the reels.

Theme & Graphics

With a name like 8 Golden Dragon Challenge, you almost know what to expect before launching the game. Sure enough, you’re greeted with some enjoyable Far East music.

The dragon-themed slot has well-drawn, Asian-inspired golden symbols , while the playing grid is set against a picturesque scene with pink blossom trees, mountains, and lucky gold coins.

While there is nothing remarkably different about how the slot looks, how the bonus round plays out is an excellent feature.

Symbols & Paytable

The low-paying symbols are the 9 through to A, so Pragmatic Play hasn’t gone out of its way to introduce some better symbols inspired by the Orient.

However, the higher symbols are three dragons: blue, green and red. The payouts for each can be seen in the pay table below.

Symbol Match 2 Match 3 Match 4 Match 5
9 - 0.50 1.00 2.00
10 - 0.50 1.00 2.00
J - 0.50 1.00 2.00
Q - 1.00 2.00 5.00
K - 1.00 2.00 5.00
A - 2.00 5.00 10.00
Blue Dragon 1.00 5.00 10.00 20.00
Green Dragon 2.00 10.00 20.00 50.00
Red Dragon 5.00 20.00 50.00 100.00

8 Golden Dragon Challenge Features & Bonus Games

You must land three golden dragon scatters to launch the exciting bonus game. These land on reels 1, 3 or 5.

If you manage all three, two red curtains will close across the screen and open again to reveal a bonus game.

Mini Slot Machine Bonus

Here is what’s known as the Mini Slot Machine Bonus. Eight mini slots now fill the game grid, flanked on either side by two giant golden dragons. Each mini slot has a 3 x 3 grid, and they spin automatically in turn.

With only dragon symbols or blanks, you hope to land parts of a dragon symbol anywhere on the three rows. The more parts of a dragon that sit on the reels, the higher your cash return from each mini slot.

If no winning line forms, the mini slot closes and is taken out of action. At the end of the round, any mini slots that formed wins play again. This process continues until the last slot draws a blank.

Your winnings are then added up to make up your bonus payout.

Envelope Bonus

In the main bonus game, there’s an added extra if one of the mini slot reels is filled with a whole dragon symbol. In this case, you also earn an envelope. Your running Mini Slot Machine Bonus total and envelope totals appear in the middle of the grid.

Once the Mini Slot Machine Bonus ends, a second bonus round begins, assuming you have won some envelopes.

Sealed envelopes replace the mini slots. They then open one at a time to reveal a random cash prize inside, which can be 2x, 3x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x or 10x the bet.

Better yet, if you landed two full dragon symbols, the envelope bonus has a 3x multiplier. Get three full dragon symbols, and the Envelope Bonus is a whopping 8x.

Once it’s over, your Mini Slot Machine Bonus and any Envelope Bonus are combined for your total bonus winnings.

The bonus rounds are really where the 8 Golden Dragon Challenge excels, so you might consider investing in the Higher Chance to Win Feature – by clicking on the tab on the left of the base game grid. This costs a little more per spin but increases your chances of landing three scatter symbols.

Buy Bonus Feature Option

Depending on where you are playing, you may be offered the buy bonus feature for 100x your stake. This takes you straight to the bonus feature.
