East Sea Dragon King Slot Review

Prepare to dive into the turquoise waters of the East Sea as you spin your way through East Sea Dragon King, the latest casino video slot brought to you by NetEnt. The seas are littered with ancient scrolls, shiny coins and wonderful jade dragon statues for you to gather, so get ready to seek your fortune in these marvellous waters.

East Sea Dragon King is brought to life through a colourful Asian theme complete with well-designed graphics, shiny animations and a relaxing soundtrack. Wild Substitutions, Re-Spins and a Cluster Pays Mechanic create a unique experience for any casino slot player.

As with all modern NetEnt video slot games, East Sea Dragon King will be available across desktop and mobile devices.

For a full account of the slot’s features read on below.

Cluster Pays Mechanic

Whereas most casino video slots make use of bet lines to give you a winning combination, the Cluster Pays Mechanic works in a slightly different way. Rather than relying on symbols that need to add up to a winning bet line, this mechanic calculates your wins based on the symbol clusters that appear next to each other. A minimum of 5 or more symbols clustered together will be required to award you a win.

Wild Substitutions

Wild Symbols show up in East Sea Dragon King to perform their usual function of substituting themselves with any symbol that will help you get a winning combo on your reels.

In this case, the Wild Symbols are represented by a design of the East Sea Dragon King himself. The symbols can appear on all of the reels in both the main game and Re-Spins and can pay you with the highest possible combination in all the game. Should the East Sea Dragon King grace you with his presence, the slot’s remaining bonus features will be activated.

Expanding Wilds

The first bonus the Dragon King bestows upon you comes in the form of an Expanding Wild. This transforms the King’s Wild symbol, expanding it so that it covers an entire reel. Not only does it grant you additional winning combinations based on the symbols on your reels, but it also triggers a Re-Spin.


Re-Spins are given after any Wild symbol lands on the reels and expands. This will give you a bonus shot at getting an even bigger win than the one you may already have on your hands. All initial and Re-Spin wins will be awarded once the Re-Spin has ended.

East Sea Dragon King Verdict

East Sea Dragon King quite literally turns the tables by employing a Cluster Pays Mechanic which brings an interesting change to the mainstream bet line wins that casino video slots generally employ. It also brings a new twist on the conventional Wild symbols, by using the Expanding Wilds feature together with Re-Spins to make every Wild symbol that lands on your reels a truly exciting moment to behold.

With that being said, the lack of Scatter symbols and a Free Spins mode makes us wonder what more the game could be, had even more interesting choices been made using these staple video slot features.

Regardless, we feel that East Sea Dragon King is a great video slot for both new and experienced players which will immerse you into its wonderfully realised setting and keep you coming back for more.

So, take up the call, accept your audience with his Royal Highness and have a go at NetEnt’s brand new offering. You can try East Sea Dragon King’s free demo above or head to one of our selected casinos to spin those reels for real!
