Dancing Drums is a mobile-optimised slot by Bally Technologies that takes inspiration from China. It features the Fu Babies that first appeared in Bally’s Fu Dao Le slot, and they’re back to hopefully bring you good luck in this five-reel, 243 ways-to-win slot game.
So, what makes the Dancing Drums slot such an exciting game to play on mobile devices? Well, to start with, there are four different jackpots to try and win, and as they can be awarded at random, anyone has the chance to claim them. Secondly, there’s a Free Spins Feature where you can pick your preferred option, starting with fifteen free spins on three-by-five reels with 243 ways to win and finishing with three free spins on six-by-five reels with 7,776 ways to win. Finally, there’s a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the other symbols to contribute towards a win.
The Dancing Drums slot game plays in portrait mode on mobile devices due to the way that the four jackpots are presented. Underneath the game logo (which sits in between the two Fu Babies), you can view the jackpot amounts that are up for grabs. In order from biggest to smallest, they are the Grand, the Major, the Minor, and the Mini. At the top of the reels, there’s a big and colourful ornate dish containing hundreds of gold coins. Below it, you’ll find the five-by-three reel set which is filled with oriental symbols in vibrant shades of red, gold, and green.
The pictures include lion statues, gold coins, sailing boats, drums, picture frames, tubs of flowers, and six playing card symbols. The wild symbol is the red-and-gold picture frame, and it can only land on Reels 2, 3, and 4. Handily, it can substitute for all symbols in the base game to help you win prizes.
The Fu Babies Jackpot Bonus can be awarded on any given spin and is not influenced in any way by the size of your stake. If the Bonus is triggered, a Pick-Me screen containing coin loads, and you continue picking coins until you reveal three matching symbols which correspond to the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot. Bally Technologies has also included an enhanced Free Games Feature that’s awarded when three or more of the Drum scatter symbol appears on adjacent reels. Once unlocked, the Free Games Feature allows you to pick one of five bonus options:
Regardless of which bonus option you choose, you’ll still earn three extra spins each time that two or more scatters land on adjacent reels. As oriental-themed mobile slots go, Dancing Drums is up there with the best of them. And, the chance to win no less than four jackpots and choose your own Free Spins Bonus is the icing on the cake.Play Now
