We must point out that the background of the slot is at the very least refreshing. Dragonz is intended to be a soothing, funny slot. Microgaming hit the bullseye! Besides the card like symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, all other symbols are unique and match the overall theme of the slot. The lead characters, the Dragonz, are the holders of the bonus features. There’s a Wild symbol which has a simple design and it substitutes for any other symbol to form a winning line. Scatters symbols also have a resembling look with a text which says Free Spins. Three or more of these triggers 10 Free Spins.

There are five paylines in total, so players can wager more per payline to maximise their winning potential.

Another primary difference between pokies and scratchies is the lack of bonus rounds and special video sequences in scratchies. Pokies, on the other hand, are replete with these additional aspects.

When people ask the question that forms the title of this article, they’re not talking about legal manipulation of statistics to turn a profit.
