Looking to find out more about another one of Stake’s originals? Then you’ll love what our experts have in store for you in this Stake.com Dragon Tower guide.
As well as running you through the basics of the game, we’ll take a deeper look into how it works and leave you with our top tips. Additionally, we’ll also take a quick look at some of the most popular stategies used when playing this game.
The only logical place to begin our Stake.com Dragon Tower guide is by getting back to basics and explaining what the game actually is. Essentially, Dragon Tower is a game that involves betting on the patterns of dragon eggs that appear on your screen. If you’re looking for a similar game, then Mines is a classic that Dragon Tower has clearly been based on. Like many other original Stake.com games, Dragon Tower is a test of your nerve that involves balancing risk vs reward.
Dragon Tower has a few elements to it that make it slightly more complex and sophisticated than the likes of Crash and Diamonds, but essentially the basic concept is simple. You choose a difficulty level, multiplier and stake, and then bet on the dragon eggs as they appear on your screen. The longer you wait, the higher your payout will be, however, you run the risk of a skull appearing, which ends the round and returns your stake. Dragon Tower is fast-paced and quite volatile in nature, but can also be very fun as well.

Stake.com Dragon Tower guide: How to play
There are two ways in which you can play Dragon Tower – manual and automatic. Those of you who have read our Stake.com Hilo guide will already be familiar with this concept. Where Dragon Tower adds an extra element of jeopardy, though, is in the difficulty level. Dragon Tower has a total of five difficulty levels – easy, medium, hard, expert and master. Naturally, the difficulty level that you choose determines how easy the game is to follow and win. However, the difficulty level doesn’t necessarily affect the payout should you win.
What does the difficulty level mean?
The difficulty level essentially affects how the game is played and how your screen is displayed, though the basic concept of the gameplay remains the same. In easy mode, you have four columns in which the dragon eggs appear and you can bet on a pattern of three eggs appearing in any combination – straight, diagonal, and L-shape. As the difficulty increases up to medium and hard, the number of columns is reduced. For expert and master levels, the interface returns to the four-column format, but the potential for jeopardy increases.
While this might sound quite complex, the basic concept is simple at the end of the day – you hold your nerve and click to cash out. The later you cash out, the better your payout will be, but the higher the risk of losing becomes. Our Stake.com Plinko guide deals with a more simplistic game based upon the same concept.
How betting works on Dragon Tower
Once again, as is the case with most Stake.com originals, the betting on Dragon Tower is done via a multiplier. You enter your stake and then select the multiplier that you wish to play with – the higher your multiplier is, the lower your chances of winning are. For example, a $10 stake with an x2.5 multiplier means that your payout would be $25. As is the case with many other crypto casinos, the Stake.com limits are higher than you would find in more fiat currency casinos.
However, due to the volatility of this game and the fast turnaround between rounds, we recommend that you bet small, especially when starting out. This is something that we’ll explain in more detail further down in this Stake.com Dragon Tower guide. As we briefly mentioned before, there are two different ways in which you can bet – manual and automatic. Let’s take a look at how each of these modes works below.
Manual vs automatic wagering
Ahead of writing this Stake.com Dragon Tower guide, one question we were very frequently asked is which mode is better when playing Stake.com original games. In the case of Dragon Tower, there is no single straight answer to this, as each mode will suit different players and strategies better.
Let’s start off by looking at manual mode, which is the most popular and straightforward of the two. With manual mode, you control your own stake, multiplier and difficulty level and you can change it manually in between each round as you see fit. You can either type in your stake or move it up or down using the arrow. Your difficulty level is selected via a dropdown menu and the multiplier can be increased by clicking on the icon.
Once your settings have been selected in automatic mode, those conditions will be set for all rounds going forward and you won’t have to do anything in between games. There are quite a few elements that you can predetermine in automatic mode, which we’ll use this section of our Stake.com Dragon Tower guide to tell you about.
In automatic mode, you can preset your wager amount and difficulty level, just as you can in manual mode. Additionally, you can also choose to increase or decrease your stakes by a certain percentage when you win or lose. This setting is available because the Martingale strategy is popular in this game, something that we’ll cover in the following section of our Stake.com Dragon Tower guide. You can also set an amount of profit and/or losses that you want the game to stop at.
Once your automatic settings have been set, there’s actually no requirement to interact with or even follow the game. You could, effectively, go off and do your thing then check back later to see how you got on – like betting on a sports game that you don’t end up watching. But really, where’s the fun in that? It’s always better to follow the action, and this is a game that’s designed to be played!
Stake.com Dragon Tower guide: Popular strategies
As previously mentioned, the Martingale strategy is extremely popular with this game, just as it is in our Stake.com Keno guide. For those unaware, the Martingale strategy is an old French casino strategy that was established in the 19th century. Basically, it involves halving on winning bets and doubling up on losses. The game developers at Stake.com have recognised the popularity of the Martingale strategy with users when playing Dragon Tower, So much so that next to the box where you enter your bet amount, there are buttons to half and double your wager automatically.
While it’s not the worst strategy in the world, it’s not one that we’re going to readily recommend in this Stake.com Dragon Tower guide. The Martingale strategy still carries a lot of risks and is very much a short-term strategy that doesn’t work well for long-term bankroll building. Also, the fact that the house encourages it really doesn’t bode well either.
So what is our recommended strategy?
Our recommendation in this Stake.com Dragon Tower guide is to start with extremely low stakes. Stake.com allows you to stake as little as C$0.01, and that’s something that we recommend taking advantage of. Due to the fast-paced nature of this game – each round takes less than five seconds – you don’t want to waste large chunks of your bankroll here. If you want to have longevity when playing this game, then small stakes are the way to go.

Stake.com Dragon Tower guide: The verdict
Overall, this is a fun game and one of our favourite Stake.com originals. While it follows the same basic risk vs reward concept that Stake.com’s developers seem to favour, it has a few extra elements to it that make it more interesting. Of course, that does mean that it takes longer to get to grips with, which is why starting with low stakes is extremely important.
