Quickspin Releases Their First-Ever Jackpot Game

Quickspin is a textbook example of how listening to your customers and thoroughly analysing all the data you have can help grow a business exponentially. The company was founded in 2011, but more importantly, its parent company is Playtech— one of the first companies to enter the online gambling industry. 

Although Quickspin had a huge head start compared to some other independent companies, they kept working hard and are to this day trying to figure out new ways to satisfy their users.

This is why, on July 11, they released their first-ever jackpot game. The jackpot, of course, is integrated into an amazing slot machine titled ‘Dragon Chase’. For everyone playing Quickspin games exclusively, the number of jackpots and the way to win them will be a pleasant surprise. When it comes to veterans and people who regularly play other jackpot slots, this will be something they have most likely seen before.

Spot On Design

Unsurprisingly, the design team at Quickspin did an incredible job and they deserve all the credit they can get for the effort and time invested in this project. If you have been gambling online for some time already, you can probably guess the theme based on the title. That’s right, Quickspin went with the oriental style and put animated golden dragons in the background, holding the reels in place.

Although 3D animations used to create problems for people playing on old devices and using a bad internet connection back in the day, users loved them nevertheless. The only difference is that nowadays developers don’t have to think about the performance and overdoing the animations as much as they need to worry about optimisation. 

Luckily for all Quickspin fans, they did an amazing job, making the game run without any issues on all devices and various screen resolutions and sizes.

Easy But Entertaining

One might think that creating a simple-to-play game means being lazy, but it’s the exact opposite. Making the machine do most of the work is the hard part, instead of making the players adjust multiple parameters, worrying about three or four bet adjustment options. Quickspin loves keeping it simple, which is why we have five reels, three rows, and twenty fixed paylines to deal with.

It is a bit odd that they put the number of paylines on the main screen, as everyone playing realised that the number of active ones cannot be changed, but it’s not that bad — reminding yourself of the way the total bet is spread is always good.

The Betting Range Fits All Pockets

One thing Quickspin is known for is the wide betting span. Just like the vast majority of their slot machines, Dragon Chase allows everyone to play for real money, regardless of the budget, thanks to the lower limit of 0.20, which is essentially a 0.01 bet per line. If you want to spend more than 0.20, you can bump the total bet up to 100.00!

Choose the bet size by either clicking on the up and down arrows next to the total bet indicator, or click on the amount and open a list of available amounts, ranging from 0.20 to 100.00. Make sure to check the conversion between the in-game coins and the currency you are playing with, as it might not always be 1:1.

Spin, Connect, Win!

That’s right, all you have to do is spin the machine and let it do its job by landing symbols on the reels. The first five symbols (the least valuable ones) are card values going from ten to ace. The remaining five are items connected to the Chinese tradition, such as the golden frog.

If you look at the paytable, you’ll notice that the wild brings same prizes for 3, 4, and 5 of a kind as the golden lion icon, but you need to consider the fact that it also substitutes for all other 9 regular signs.

Free Spins for Everyone!

Winning Free spins has to be the best feeling in the world when playing slot machines, besides winning the jackpot. It gets even better when there are two ways to get them instead of only one. The first one requires three scatter symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 during a regular game. 

You’ll be seeing the jackpot dragon icon a lot in this game, but don’t let that confuse you, as combining three of a kind doesn’t actually award any of the jackpot prizes. It actually activates the Dragon Pearl Respin feature. Landing three scatter signs awards 10 Free spins.

Four Jackpot Prizes

Not only are there two different ways to win Free spins, but there are also four different jackpot prizes:

  1. Mini — Requires 4 to 7 Dragon Pearl signs and awards 8x the stake.
  2. Minor — 8 to 11 Dragon Pearls needed for a 28x multiplier.
  3. Major — Land 12, 13, or 14 Dragon Pearl symbols to get 138x of the total bet.
  4. Grand — Dragon Pearl symbols need to cover the entire layout of the game (15 fields) in order for you to get the progressive jackpot.

Here is one interesting claim made by Quickspin — the higher you bet, the higher the chances of winning the grand jackpot. Many people probably doubt that, but you need to keep in mind that it is the only progressive prize in the game, which means it is formed based on the total amount of all bets, as a small percentage of each lost bet goes to the grand jackpot prize pool.

That, however, doesn’t make the RTP (Return to Player) for the game lower than usual. It is set at 96.39%, which is slightly above the average in the current market.

You can play the game for free right now, as it is available in over 30 online casinos all over the world. You will still see the jackpot amounts, but you obviously can’t win real money prizes unless you are playing using real cash.
