How to Play

Casino Gameplay

Once you have selected a game, you’re all set for the fun that is playing casino games. Enjoy the buzz of a table game, play with the newest of visually stunning slots or go in for a healthy round of card games, the casino world is all yours.
Playing by betting and starting a game-round is easy, explained here with the example of a slot game. Please find detailed descriptions of our games and how to play them in our tutorial chapter Casino Games.


A typical dashboard for a game looks like this:



The main function is the Bet frame where you can enter the amount of money you want to bet on a game-run (in slots: one spin of the wheels). The Bet Level decides, how many lines in a slot you want to bet on. Apart from the money amount you are betting it is also vital to set the coin value (basically your casino chip). The start button starts a spin and, if you want to play faster or alongside something else you are doing, you can click Autoplay and the amount of money you set is played continuously (with self-starting spins).


In detail, the values shown above mean:

  • The game is played with 25 bet lines (fixed), 1-10 bet levels and different coin values.
  • The bet level is set using the BET LEVEL selector.
  • The coin value is set using the COIN VALUE selector.
  • COINS displays the number of coins the player has available to wager.
  • MAX BET plays the game at the maximum bet lines, highest bet level, and the current coin value.
  • AUTOPLAY automatically plays the game for the selected number of rounds.
  • Winning combinations and payouts are made according to the PAYTABLE. Alternatively, click any symbol on the reels during the main game to view a mini paytable for that symbol.
  • Bet level is the number of coins bet per bet line.
  • A bet line win in coins is equal to the value shown in the PAYTABLE multiplied by the bet level.
  • A bet line win in currency is equal to the win in coins multiplied by the coin value.

Also on the lower frame (the rim of your gaming interface) you will find buttons for sound, settings, help (game explanation and auto-play). You can also see your account balance at all times. This is vital as you need to be aware of your account balance. You can also directly click on the Pay-In/Pay-Out function should you wish to deposit or withdraw money. This is essential for your information and – most importantly – for your handling of your finances.



Monitor your finances

It has been a widespread prejudice over centuries that casinos are after your finances and simply want to strip you of your cash. While there is no denying that there are enough examples for that to be true, casinos as such are nothing but what you make of it. Of course the thrill of gaming mesmerizes many people but let’s face it, you are not going into a pub to spend your entire pay-check on alcohol, you want so spend some quality time with a pint or two. Playing in a casino should follow exactly this mind-set: Play reasonably, quit while you’re ahead and watch your spending. In the My Accounts section you can set limits of what you want to spend i.e monthly, you can also exclude yourself for a selected period of time. All these instruments are avalable to help you manage your spending to make playing with us what it is supposed to be: Entertainment and fun.



Start with Play-Money

Speaking of fun, every online-casino including Dragonara has the functionality to play for fun. This means that you can start playing with us using play-money of no real value. However, it gives you a chance to get to know the game and the gameplay (betting money and seeing the results). While many people tend to play this as a side-enjoyment placing bets here and there without really caring, there is a much more important value in the play for fun mode: By playing without risk you may lack the thrill but on the other hand you have the chance to observe the game and its proceedings. You can see how to play, how to win and how quickly you might also lose when you raise your bets. We therefore strongly suggest - especially to all those new to online gaming -  to play for free but with a serious mind to watch and get a grip of the game. Then, when you thoroughly understood the game and the value of money processed, it is time to play for real.



Responsible Gaming

As with anything in life, people can get carried away with gaming and thus run into a situation where gaming becomes a habit. If it is under control then no worries but there are the few who need a helping hand or advice. This is why we have a section on responsible gaming in our tutorial which we would strongly recommend you to read. We also partner with several organisations specializing in treating gambling habits or addictions. So should you find yourself or a friend in such a situation, do not hesitate to make use of these contacts. Naturally, our service-team is always there for you should you have any questions.
