Dragon Jackpot Roulette

Dragon Jackpot Roulette LogoThis game from Playtech is very similar to the Superman Roulette variant that we have also talked about on this site.

It has four different jackpots attached that can be won after any qualifying spin, and it also has a bonus round that players can choose to use or ignore as they please.

This RNG based game has a lot more depth than the regular European roulette from which it takes its inspiration, and it offers the potential to walk away with much higher payouts from some bets too.


Before we look at the features of this game, it makes sense to point out the new additions to the interface which might not have an immediately obvious function.

There are two of them; the Dragons Bonus button, and the Jackpot button.

Dragon Jackpot Roulette Interface

The Jackpot button is outlined in pink and simply tells the game whether or not you want to be included in the jackpot. If you select this button you will need at least £1 bet somewhere on the table, and 1% of your bet will be added to the jackpot total.

The Dragon Bonus button is outlined in green and clicking this will bring all of the numbers on the board into focus. You can then place up to twelve bonus tokens on any numbers you like including the zero.

Once you have done that just click the button again and you will return to the initial view of the interface where your twelve selections will show up both on the board and on the corresponding pockets on the roulette wheel.


It costs nothing to place your golden bonus tokens and you are under no obligation to bet on them either. However, if you do not have a bet on them then you will not benefit if the ball lands in one of their pockets.

If you have placed a chip on one of the tokens and the bet wins, then the bonus round will begin. Do note though that the regular payout will not be paid, you are trading it for the bonus round.

Dragon Jackpot Roulette Outer Wheel

First you spin the Outer Wheel which you can see above, and this has three potential outcomes:

  1. Spin – Go to the inner wheel with no additional feature.
  2. Boost x 2 – All multipliers on the inner wheel are doubled.
  3. 3 Pointers – 3 pointers spin on the inner wheel instead of one, and the multipliers they land on are added together.

Next you spin the Inner Wheel. This has 8 segments containing multipliers as you can see in the image below, it also has a regular pointer and a re-spin pointer.

If they both land on the same multiplier you get that multiplier added to your stake but you also get another spin of the outer wheel before giving the inner wheel another spin. This can happen three times maximum. If they don’t, then you simply receive the multiplier that the regular pointer is lined up with.

Winning bets that can trigger the bonus round are:

  • Straight Up
  • Corner
  • Street
  • Split
  • Line

However, your stake for the purposes of the bonus round will be split by however many winning possibilities your bet included.

For example, in our image we accessed the bonus round with a 10p corner bet. A corner bet is made up of four numbers and so our 10p stake was split into four for the purposes of the bonus round, which is why our stake is only 0.025p.

This does mean that for certain bets you could end up with less after the bonus than if you had just taken the regular payout, but you could also walk away with much more too, and that is the chance you take.


There are four jackpots to be won, and they are triggered at random after any single spin, even a losing one.

Dragon Jackpot Roulette JackpotYou need to have at least £1 bet on the board to qualify, and you need to make sure the jackpot button is lit up otherwise you won’t be in with a chance of winning.

If you do trigger the jackpot you are guaranteed to win one of them; which one you take home depends on the spin of another wheel which you can see in the image on the right.

Each dragon has a colour, and you need to keep spinning until you fill one of the dragon’s meters. This will be the jackpot that you win.

Each dragon has a different number of positions on the wheel making it more likely to fill the smallest dragon jackpot meter first.

Jackpot Seed Positions
Green £10 4
Blue £100 3
Red £1,000 2
Yellow £10,000 1

The seed is the amount the jackpot starts at after it has been won, but as you can see from our images they continue to climb until they are won again and can get very high indeed.


There is a lot going on in this roulette variant, so the theoretical return to player percentage can move around a bit.

The minimum RTP you will be playing at is 97.02% and the maximum is 98.30%. This takes into account the 1% jackpot contributions as well as the different bet types.
