IGT, the company that has worked on Dragons Temple, has quite a few slot machines in their collection, and I think they weren’t very original with this one. It’s a Chinese themed game, the likes of which I’m sure that they have others, though perhaps not with the Dragon thrown in.
You see that dragon in one of the symbols, though in five variants of different colors, andit looks like the Asian style of the creature, as opposed to the variant seen in stories based on Medieval Europe.
The Temple mentioned in the title is also in one of the major symbols, followed by others with images of porcelain vases, of fish, Yin Yang logos and so on. The fact that poker cards are the ones to complete the symbol line-up doesn’t help the game, as far as I’m concerned.
I’ve found IGT to be a developer on which you can depend to put a game out which will rely on features, so if that’s what you’re looking for in a game, then they will do great.
I’ve never been a big fan of the designs they have in their slot machines, an aspect that matters more for some players than for others. I’ve found some that I enjoyed though, and here I would mention Silent Movie, Nordic Heroes and Family Guy.
How To Play It
The game has 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 active lines, and I would say that you should go with the largest number if you can, since you’re less likely to get bored. For each of those lines, there is a range for the line bet, which is between $1 and $500. You spend anywhere between $10 and $25,000 per spin.
The interface has changed slightly compared with the previous IGT slot machines, but not by much. The lines and the bet/line are on the left side, at the bottom, and to access their options you just need to click on the large orange and square shaped buttons that are appropriately marked.

Yin Yang is a symbol that’s familiar to pretty much everyone these days, and slot machines have nothing to do with it. The symbol was picked here to appear in scattered positions, and from there to get you access to small prizes and free spins.
The reels 2, 3 & 4 are the ones where scatters may appear. They give you payouts of 1x or 5x total bet, for 2 or 3 symbols.
With 3 scatters, you access the free spins picking feature. The first one gives you 15 rounds, with the 3rd reel entirely wild. The second option has 10 spins, but you get two wild reels, the 2nd and the 4th. The final choice is that of 5 spins, that have the reels 1, 3 and 5 entirely wild.
The Dragon is part of another major symbol of the game, the wild. Coming in five different variants, each for another reel, it will expand and occupy the reel entirely when it makes its appearance. Combinations may form as well, paying for 2 to 5 symbols on the same line.
There are two ways to get the top payout, which reaches a value of 1,000x the line bet. You do it either through five wild symbols aligned on a line, or with five game logos doing the same thing.
It’s not the most original game in the world, but the set of features chosen for it might make the difference for some players.
