Appearance and Sound Effects

As Dancing Drums has been designed with the mobile user experience at the forefront, the design and gameplay primarily work much better on a tablet or mobile, and less well on a desktop.  The games Oriental theme oozes out as you spin with theme sound effects and music.  The backdrop is dominated by a red and gold background, and there are gold writing and symbols dotted across that. 

On the reels, you have a mixture of symbols.  Firstly, there is the lower value playing card symbols, 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.  Then you have the higher value theme related symbols which include a range of items in gold; flowers, coins, ships, and pots.  There is also the drum symbol which is the highest paying symbol, and landing five will win 50x your stake. 

Bonuses and Special Features

The first of the bonus symbols on Dancing Drums is the wild symbol.  This symbol will appear on the middle three reels and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, except the scatter bar symbol.

The wild symbol is also the key to the first of the bonus features, the Jackpot Bonus game.  This feature is a random feature and can be triggered when wilds land on the reels; only one wild is needed to trigger it, but it won't happen every time wilds land. 

Once activated you will be given twelve gold coins to choose from.  Each selection will reveal one of the four jackpots – mini, minor, major or grand.  You must match three of the jackpot cards to win that jackpot.  The grand jackpot can be worth up to 1135x your stake.

The main feature is a free spins game on Dancing Drums.  To activate the feature, you must land three or more of the scatter bar symbol.  You will then be asked to choose the number of spins and reel set up from the below options:

•    15 free spins on a reel set of 5x3
•    10 free spins on a reel set of 5x4
•    5 free spins on a reel set of 5x5
•    3 free spins on a reel set of 5x6
•    Mystery Pick – A random number free spins (3-15) and a 5x6 reel set.

Landing an additional two scatter bar symbols during your free spins will award a further three spins.
