Dragon's Cache Slot (Microgaming)

Dragon's Cache Slot (Microgaming)This is the newest slot from Microgaming, and they developed it in partnership with SpinPlay Games.

Dragon’s Cache is a medium volatility slot with a medieval fantasy theme, and we will explore it more in the unbiased review below:

Game Set-Up

The slot plays out on a grid of 5x4 reels that also has 20 pay lines. The developer has given it some very good features that include wilds, Expanding Reels, Stacked Symbols, Free Spins, and Stacked Wilds among others.

Betting and Prizes

You can place real money bets on the slot using as little as $0.20 per spin. The MAX amount that you will be allowed to spend on a single bet is $50.

When it comes to payout, Microgaming does pretty well, and on a good day, you can take home wins of up to 5,000xs your stake.

I’m also impressed by the slot’s RTP of 96.47% which suits its medium volatility pretty well.

Dragons Cache Slot Features

The dragon eye Wild is one of the most obvious features of the slot. It can appear anywhere on the reels, and as usual, this feature will step in for other regular icons. It can also pay on its own by offering up to 10x your stake.

Then there is the Dragon’s Chest Bonus Round, and to trigger it, you need to collect at least 1 chest token. These will be collected in 1 of the 3 matching treasure chests located above the grid (purple, red, and green).

The number of collected chest token(s), will determine the Chest Upgrade feature that you will get should a trigger happen. The slot will reward you with 5 free spins from just one Green Chest token (that is if there is a trigger), while the regular number of win ways will double, and you get to 40.

The Red Chest token rewards 10 free spins, and you also get an opportunity to land special gold dragon coins while in this feature.

You get some reveal letters spelling out the names Mega, Major, as well as Minor and Mini. To win the corresponding prize, you must spell out a full jackpot name.  The pay is 5,000x, 500x, 50x and 10x the stake, respectively.

With the Purple Chest, you will be rewarded with 5 free spins, and an opportunity to land the gold dragon coins. Although these coins don’t trigger the jackpot, they reward you with +1 or +2 additional spins (sometimes you can get a 1x credit prize).

Dragons Cache also comes with a random multiplier that can get to x5 on each spin. Triggering the bonus spin with several chest tokens will combine all chest modifiers. The slot will reward you with 5 free spins save for situations where the red chest has been used to trigger the spin (this will give you 10 free spins).

Theme and Design

When I first laid my eyes on Dragon's Cache, I was taken back to my childhood memories, where the imaginary thoughts of swimming in a pool that is filled with coins emerged.

In the backdrop, the developer has designed a treasure that is guarded by the dragon.

The slot borrows from medieval fantasy, and the developer has given it some creative cartoonish graphics, highlighting dragons and knights in outstanding armours.

For the symbols, you get to work with a Chest, Shield, Sword, Treasures, and the Dragons, plus several low-pay icons.


Dragon's Cache has a decent and engaging presentation, and I’m quite impressed by the mountain of gold coins that appear in the backdrop.

It’s a slot that offers players different ways of winning good prizes, and given the combination of these prices, the decent RTP, and the medium volatility, it is a game that I can recommend to all levels of players.
