Back Pragmatic Play Starts Roadmap 2023 and Takes Flight with Dragon Hero

2023 Starts in the Style of Rabbit… and Dragons

After another busy year at Pragmatic Play, the provider is back to start off 2023 with an action-packed online slot in the style of Chinese tradition and culture.

Released on 5 January, the company’s latest slot release, Dragon Hero, is ready to take flight and bring both wild and super wild symbols to the fore, which act as the game’s main features.

A Powerful and Bold Title for Start of 2023

Set across 5 reels and 4 rows, Dragon Hero represents a bold take on the Asian design and tradition, featuring symbols like scrolls, coins and vases. They must fill the game board to form matching combinations, and there are only 20 winning ways to create a sequence.

Pragmatic Play added two types of wilds to this Dragon-chasing adventure: regular and super wild symbols. While the standard substituting images can step if for all other symbols, except the free spin-awarding scatters, super wilds have the power to randomly place up to three wilds anywhere on the game board!

To kick off the most interesting free spins round, players will need at least three or more scatter symbols on the same spin.

During this action-packed mode, they are awarded up to 10 bonus wheels. These can spin and any one of them can trigger up to three spins. Once the complimentary spins start, all super wilds are held in place, while additional scatters that land may award one half of a wild.

However, you will need two to receive an additional randomly placed wild and upgrade it into a super wild symbol.

In case you forgot, the studio’s first slot release for 2023 follows hot on the heels of three recent hits. Among the last games in the portfolio are Starlight Christmas, Sweet Powernudge and Pizza! Pizza? Pizza! now residing in a collection of over 250 unique titles.

Dragon Hero is a bold and exciting title with every spin in both the base game and free spins round being able to award players multiple wilds, features and super wilds,” Irina Cornides, chief operating officer at Pragmatic Play.

According to the COO, slot roadmap for this year is set to build on the success of 2022. Many players expect further development of signature features, themes and gameplay which distinguishes Pragmatic Play from other providers.

Cornides is excited at the prospect of creating content that encapsulates the so-called ‘player favorites’ and will continue to work on many new great products in the upcoming months.

Two New Partnerships in January

Right at the beginning of January, Pragmatic Play strengthened its footprint on the market in Latin America. The leading content provider to the iGaming industry has agreed a content delivery deal with Peruvian operator Pentagol, promising to launch many player-favourite slots, live casino and virtual sports products.

Players in Switzerland will also be able to enjoy some of the best slots from the studio as the company teamed up with the Partouche Groupe-owned brand on January 4th.
