Slot Game of the Week

Dragon Shard: Stormcraft Studios (released under DGC in the US). RTP: 96.4%.

Dragon Shard Slot was initially released in 2019, but it is brand new to the US at BetMGM, Party, and Borgata Casinos; plus, it's a darn fine slot to spin, so we’re making it this week’s slot of the week!

It’s a fantasy spinner filled with dragons, stacked dragon symbols, and a duel between the Ice King and Fire Queen on 5 reels with 40 lines. With a tense playing atmosphere, this is a stunning slot with beautifully crafted graphics. There are three main features you’ll want to know about, the win booster, which doubles the stakes, makes the paylines win both ways, and boost mystery symbols; the super-stacked mystery symbols, which reveal wilds or high paying symbols; and free spins, which you’ll trigger with 3+ scatter and come with mystery reels.
