The 8 Dragons is a slot machine that comes in the form of an online flash game. The name clearly shows that this particular game is all about the auspicious Chinese numeral 8 and so is Asia based themed. In fact, the name was actually coined by none other than Lo Shu Feng, a well know Chinese lottery player. The 8 Dragons slot machine is based on the machine he used to win a huge jackpot in a local lottery competition. Hence, the name has stuck despite the fact that there have been many variations introduced since then.
The basics of the game are pretty much the same, except that the reels have been shuffled to remove any possibility of cheating. The main differences happen with the spin option that allows players to either slow down the game or speed it up, depending on their strategy. In addition, players can also opt for the auto-spinning reels that allow the machine to randomly spin the reels without the player's intervention thus increasing the chances of winning big jackpots.
When you see the winning combination being announced on the screen, all that you have to do is click on the wheel to bet and make your bet. If you hit the button to spin the reels, the software will randomly multiply the numbers and announce the winning combination. Some of these multipliers include the Lo Shu Feng multiplier, Double Dragon multipliers, and the Winning Balance multiplier. To increase your chances of winning, it would be a good idea to try a few of these multipliers as they increase your chances exponentially. However, there are other ways by which you can double your winnings from the 8 Dragons online slot machine.
