Pragmatic Play launches new Asian-themed slot Dragon Hero


iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play announced Thursday it is starting off 2023 with a new online slot called Dragon Hero. Set across 5×4 reels, the title features symbols that reflect its Asian-inspired design with scrolls, coins and vases filling the game board. 

These symbols must form matching combinations across the title’s 20 winning ways to award a win, and are joined by wild and super wild symbols. Wilds substitute all other symbols in the game except the free spin-awarding scatters and super wilds randomly place up to three wilds anywhere on the game board.

Three or more scatter symbols award the free spins round. Here up to 10 bonus wheels can spin with each awarding up to three spins. In the free spins round, all super wilds are held in place throughout the duration of the bonus, additional scatters landed award one half of a wild with two needed to award an additional randomly placed wild to a super wild symbol.

This slot release follows recent title launches such as Starlight Christmas, Sweet Powernudge, and Pizza! Pizza? Pizza!, which reside amongst a collection of over 250 titles in Pragmatic Play’s games portfolio.

Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Dragon Hero is a bold and exciting title with every spin in both the base game and free spins round being able to award players multiple wilds, features and super wilds.” 

Our slot roadmap for this year is set to build on the success of 2022 and players can expect the signature breadth of engaging features, themes and gameplay that Pragmatic Play is synonymous for. We’re excited at the prospect of creating content that encapsulates what it is to be a player favorite that our fans can return to time and again,” she concluded. 

In addition to launching new gaming content, Pragmatic Play has been growing its footprint in many regions around the world such as Latin America and Europe, with latest deals signed in Peru with Pentagol, Brazil with Aposta Ganha and Italy with Sportbet.
