Triple Fortune Dragon Unleashed

The Triple Fortune Dragon series of games has a fanatical following in Washington State. That led a player to wonder:

Why is Triple Fortune Dragon machine only available in Washington state?

Randall H.

The original Triple Fortune Dragon actually is available outside Washington State! For many years, to share just an example, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has (or had – it’s been a bit since we’ve been to see if it’s still there) offered a Triple Fortune Dragon machine on its floor.

The game is important enough to IGT, the company that released it, that they even released a variation of it for the Class II/Bingo machine markets last year.

Washington State, however, is unusual in that it doesn’t provide a traditional slot machine (known as Class III) offering, but instead something more like pull tabs or scratch tickets. Because of the unique nature of the system offered there, this also means that the game library tends to be smaller, and it allows games to survive or thrive that may have been pulled off casino floors elsewhere.

Triple Fortune Dragon is most definitely one of them.

The game is so popular in Washington State that brand extensions have been released there in recent years, which haven’t shown up in Class III/Vegas-style slot markets. This is a rare example of an investment in a particular market because of the fervent fan base that’s found there. Some of the extensions have shown up as Bingo machines, but so far that’s about it.

This is not unlike the VGT red screen Bingo machines that have thrived in Oklahoma, but so far haven’t popped up all that often in many other places, even though Bingo machines certainly exist in plentiful numbers elsewhere.

The combination of the unique nature of Washington State’s offering, and the fan base that’s developed around that game, has led the game to be linked to the location, but the game series certainly has existed elsewhere. It’s just in Washington State where the interest is on a completely other level.

    As a Washingtonian, I AM on that level above for the Triple Fortune Dragon machines! lol I love the ‘Unleashed’ version and do play the newer Triple Fortune Dragon Rising version sometimes also. 👍

    • FlipTheSwitch.com says:

      You’re certainly not the first to say how fun the Unleashed version is, and Brian’s had some good luck on it himself!

  • Patti says:

    I’ve seen TFD played in Minnesota. Saw it on you tube.

    • FlipTheSwitch.com says:

      That’s right Patty – it’s out there, but it’s on a different level in Washington State!

      • Patti says:

        What are the differences?

        • FlipTheSwitch.com says:

          IGT specifically releases new versions of the game, with different sorts of features, in Washington State. Some versions are only in Washington State, whereas others get released elsewhere, like in Oklahoma. The fan base of the game in Washington makes it worth it for them to cater to players there specifically!

          It’s insanely popular. I go to one of the biggest casinos in the area (Muckleshoot). I would guess that of their 3000+ machines at least 1/5 to 1/4 are some variation of TFD. They are always full too, especially the newer versions.

  • Melvin Springs says:

    I live in WA state ans I love all of the Triple fortune dragon slots. BEST GAME EVER!!!!!! FROM BREMERTON WITH LOVE!!!!

  • April Walker says:

    If we had any Dragon Cash here it would be the most popular. I don’t care for the TFD or unleaded. Vegas has spoiled me for Dragon Cash.
    Did see last weekend they are really trying to get more varieties of machines in.

    • FlipTheSwitch.com says:

      It’s possible those games may make their way there in the future. Because the systems work somewhat differently, it can be harder or take more time to bring certain game types over, but that’s not to say it won’t ever happen!
