This game is on fire and so are the Hot Zones! With each spin, a shape will drop across the reels. If this “Hot Zone” lands on the symbols, they become wild. Get on a hot streak with Jewel of the Dragon.

Many people will be familiar with this slot given Bally converted it from a land-based slot game into an online version. It also might strike a chord with fans of the slot Sumo Kitty, as it uses the same game engine, although it obviously has a different theme.
