iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has announced the launch of a new Asian-inspired, mythology-themed online slot titled 8 Golden Dragon Challenge. The supplier says that the game "transports players deep into the mountains to the House of Fortune and Good Luck", where blue, red and green dragons make up the game's symbols across the slot's 5x3 reels.
Landing three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels unlocks the bonus game, where eight free spins are awarded. During this round, eight mini slot machines take their initial spin with three adjacent dragon symbols landing on the reels needed to be rewarded. This also triggers the respin feature while all machines failing to secure a win are locked.

Furthermore, if dragon symbols fill an entire reel, it unravels the mystery of the Orient and awards players the Envelope Bonus in which an instant jackpot prize is revealed on each mini slot machine, helping players to reach the maximum win of over 8,800x their bet.
Pragmatic Play stated that the new release further diversifies its portfolio and brings "exciting new experiences to audiences worldwide." 8 Golden Dragon Challenge follows the recent launches of two installments to beloved franchises, John Hunter and the Book of Tut Megaways and Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: "Dragons unlock the key to powerful rewards in our latest release while taking players on a mystical adventure. With potent and auspicious powers, various dragons adorn the reels and can trigger the game's fast-paced Mini Slot Machine Bonus, where cash prizes can be scaled up to great heights. Adding a deeper layer to the game is the thrilling Envelope Bonus, which can reveal instant cash prizes and exciting multipliers."
