When wilds are used for a match win, they will not explode and will continue to move down with other cascades. This may help additional match wins before the next spin.

Conclusion Wrap up
We admit to being much more of a fan of the more traditional 5 reel slot with a good storyline but we enjoyed this game a bit. The free spins round was pretty fun and very rewarding. We really like the gamble option and used it a few times to double our wins. Those times we gambled and chose wrong, well it was our choice.
This game provides a lot of active features and the exploding blocks does add to the thrill of the win. You can try this game at any casino with Dragon games.
