5 Dragons Pokies Review

If you've ever set foot in a casino or any other venue that has pokies available in Australia, you've probably come across 5 Dragons. It's actually one of Oz's most popular titles.

Thanks to Aristocrat's – the producers of this slot – decades of experience of creating pokies, they were able to bring all of their popular offline licenses with them when they made the move to the online space.

But just because a slot title is popular offline doesn't mean it's automatically worthy of your custom when you're playing on the web!


5 Dragons is a slot that wouldn't look out of place in any venue in your local Chinatown – reel icons include dragons, turtles, lions, distinctive coins and lucky red envelopes.

With gold edging and iconography, plus rich colours, this slot looks fantastic and the online version just as attractive as its offline equivalent. Some fabulous Oriental music also serves to complement the graphics but, for some reason we're not sure of, doesn't seem to kick in at every online casino.

It's always fascinating to get a look into another culture and this is exactly what 5 Dragons, albeit in a very minor way, allows players to do. This title may have been around for a while, but it still looks just lovely.


With 243 ways to win in place of the usual payline structure, 5 Dragons serves up lots of prizes to players. Unfortunately, because wins are fairly common, they are often worth very little cash.

Even with this being the case, it's not unusual to go for several spins in 5 Dragons without a single victory. This suggests that it must have quite a fairly variance, even though the base maximum jackpot stands at just 800 credits...or maybe we were just having a run of bad luck.

5 Dragons really shines in its volatile bonus feature. Different coloured dragons grant users anywhere between 5 and 20 free games with three wild multipliers, ranging from 2x to a staggering 30x.

The result is that when you play with the maximum bet, around 100 AUD or a little more if you want to add extra free spins to the bonus round, you stand to make some SERIOUS money if you land a prize with a large multiplier.

Added Value

It may not be the newest slot on the market, but it remains easy to see why 5 Dragons has always been popular and remains so until this day. It's a fairly volatile slot for a non-progressive game, but a bonus round with huge potential more than makes up for this in the eyes of many Australian players.

We'd recommend taking this one for a ride in free play mode first – it can take a while to figure out how often you might expect to land a bonus round and, as a result, how careful you'll need to be when managing your bankroll.

There are fancier slots out there, but this one has been tried and tested over the course of many years. You'll find it difficult to track down a more enjoyable slot than 5 Dragons.


One of the older Chinese themed slots on the market, 5 Dragons doesn't have a particularly impressive jackpot or a unique style of play. Even so, it's very popular because it's a game that many players are familiar with from playing in land-based casinos. With 243 ways to win, a low variance nature and a multiplier of up to 30x in the bonus round, 5 Dragons can still hold its own against fancier, more modern slots. Unfortunately, a low maximum jackpot means that these dragons won't hold much appeal for jackpot hunters who only like to play for life changing sums of cash.
