Slot Machine Review: IGT's Triple Fortune Dragon Slots
Triple Fortune Dragon is a popular, old school slot machine game with an Oriental theme

by Paul Ace Diamond "Huggy" Blow

The Triple Fortune Dragon slots game.

Triple Fortune Dragon (by IGT) is a very popular five reel "243 ways to win" slot machine game you will find in most casinos. While Triple Fortune Dragon is an older video slot machine game, people seem to love to play the game. Most times when I visit the local casinos the banks of Triple Fortune Dragon games are usually full of people playing them, and it seems when casinos post online their recent jackpot winners, an awful lot of the jackpots were won on Triple Fortune Dragon. This game has an Oriental theme with some Chinese characters as symbols, plus the Golden Dragon wild card symbol, which can multiply a winning combination up to 9x. Personally, I don't usually play this game, but I have experimented with it a bit and my best win so far was a $400 bonus round with a $2.50 bet.

How to play Triple Fortune Dragon
You can bet as little as one line (one penny per spin) with Triple Fortune Dragon, but your best bet is to bet at least 25 cents per spin, which will give you 243 possible winning combinations. The Golden Dragon symbol is the wild card in Triple Fortune Dragon, and the wild card will multiply your winning combination award by 3x. The wild card only exists on reels 2 and 4, so if you get the wild card symbol on both reels you can multiply your winning combinations 9x in the bonus round. The max credits on this game in most casinos is $2.50 per spin, which is a more affordable max credit bet than most of the newer slot games you will find in casinos these days.

The Triple Fortune Dragon bonus round
Getting three or more Golden Coin symbols (the scatters) from left to right in a spin puts you into the bonus round, where you can get up to 360 free spins. Three Golden Coins will get you fifteen free spins, four will get you twenty, and five will get you thirty free spins. The wild card symbol can substitute for the Golden Coins to help you get a bonus round, and once in the bonus round the wild card symbols turn into 3x mulitpliers. The free spins bonus can be retriggered during the bonus round earning you up to 360 free spins total. The bonus round is where you have the best chance of winning a large award, or even a jackpot ($1200 or more).

The Triple Fortune Dragon jackpot
Getting five Chinese Emperor symbols or five Chinese Girl symbols in a winning combination in a spin will award the game's top prize ($10 on a penny bet), but when betting max credits ($2.50 per spin) it is possible to win over $1200 on a spin if you hit five of those symbols in the bonus round with two Golden Dragon wild cards in the combination, which will multiply the win to jackpot amounts (over $1200). I believe this game is so popular with casino players because the jackpot amount awards come up more often than on most other slot machine games. Usually, when casinos post online their recent jackpot winners, an awful lot of them were won on this game, I have noticed.
