Microgaming’s New Dragon Shard Slot Hits the Market
After launching the new Lara Croft Temples and Tombs and Reel Splitter video slots earlier this month, the leading developer of online casino content, Microgaming, has added another title to its extensive offering.
This fresh release, titled Dragon Shard, will see elemental forces battle on the reels, bringing plenty of excitement and chances to win. The new fantasy-themed game has been developed exclusively for Microgaming by Stormcraft Studios, an independent game studio behind such popular titles as Agent Jane Blonde Returns and Fortunium.
Get Ready for a Battle of Epic Proportions
Dragon Shard has a five-reel five-row layout with a total of 40 pay-lines, boasting beautiful graphics and a number of innovative game features. The slot will send players on an epic journey through a world of magic, where huge prizes await to be discovered.
To help them do so, the game will offer the help of the powerful Win Booster, which can significantly increase their winnings, Mystery Symbols, which hide immense riches, and Mystery Reels, an option available during the Free Spins round.

The reels are populated with a wide variety of vibrantly-coloured icons, including the top-paying Fire Queen and Ice Kings symbols, which appear stacked on the grid throughout the game. All other symbols may appear double stacked on the reels! The Mystery Symbols increase the chances of scoring big wins when they make their appearance on the grid, as they offer punters the opportunity to fill the screen with five-of-a-kind wins!
Using the Win Booster, the Mystery Symbols can be turned into Wilds and high-paying symbols, while pay-lines will pay both ways. Unlocking this feature will double the player’s bet, but the rewards it can bring are also increased.
Plenty of Ways to Grab Rewarding Prizes
Landing a minimum of three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 10 free spins in the process. Players will also get up to three Mystery Reels, which are activated randomly on reels 2,3, and 4 on every spin. Land additional Scatters to get more spins added to your count.
Commenting on the launch of this game, Jagoda Barber Head of Games at Microgaming said Dragon Shard was another exceptional addition to Microgaming’s innovative slot portfolio from the talented team at Stormcraft Studios.
She pointed out the game’s feature set was just as deep and rich as its presentation, with the Win Booster™ further enhancing the power of Mystery Symbols and Mystery Reels in free spins, which offered excellent win potential for any player lucky enough to land five scatters entering the bonus, particularly if the Win Booster was enabled.
Barber added that Stormcraft Studios had realized a visually and aurally immersive world of sword and sorcery, which particularly shined in portrait mode on mobile.
Terence Igesund Executive Producer at Stormcraft Studios, stated his company was looking forward to welcoming players into the magical realm of the Fire Queen and Ice King, and providing them with a thoroughly entertaining gaming experience.
The epic battle for the Dragon Shard has already begun. You can join the fight at any online casino powered by the renowned developer.
