The Glitzy design combines with an extremely volatile gameplay with 5 Lions Gold, 5 reels and 243 ways to win at Pragmatic Play slot machines. This return trip to historic China is a potentially explosive journey with winnings that can reach more than 7,700 times your bet. The highlight is the bonus round where you can choose from a selection of free combinations of effects and multipliers. You will also have the chance to win one of the 3 jackpot prizes. Play on all devices between 18p and £90 per turn.

There is a very traditional touch in the design of 5 Lions Gold. The gold coils include royal values of lower value as well as 5 statues of animals in gold of higher value. In order of value are the turtle, fish, frog and phoenix. The most profitable standard symbol is the dragon. Land 5 of them on adjacent reels and you will receive a payout of 7 times your total bet.

The golden lion’s head is the wild game. This appears only on the 3 middle rollers and replaces everything except the diffusion of yin yang yang yang. This Yin Yang Yang Yang scatter also only runs on rolls 2, 3 and 4. Land 3 of them on the same turn and you will trigger the Free Spins function. This is where things can get much more interesting. You will then have the choice between 7 different combinations of effects/multiplier ranges.

24 free spins with a multiplier 2x, 3x or 5x
18 free spins with a multiplier of 3x, 5x or 8x
15 free spins with a multiplier of 5x, 8x or 10x
12 free spins with a multiplier of 8x, 10x or 15x
9 free spins with a multiplier of 10x, 15x or 30x
6 free spins with a multiplier of 15x, 30x or 40x
Choose the mystery free spins option and you could end up with any combination of free spins and multipliers.

Once the free spins have started, 1 of the 3 multiplier amounts in the range you have chosen will be applied to all your winnings for each free spin. This can change from one end of the spectrum to the other. For example, if you have opted for the 15 free spins, each free spin will receive a random boost of 5x, 8x of 10x. The 3 yin and yang landing symbols result in a re-triggering and a new series of free spins.

5 Lions Gold also offers you the chance to win one of 3 jackpot prizes in the Gold Mills Jackpot feature. These are triggered when the coils turn to gold:

3 Gold Rolls - Minor Jackpot of 15 times your total bet
4 Gold Rolls - Major Jackpot of 250 times your total bet
5 Gold Rolls - Large Jackpot of 2,000 times your total bet

You can also trigger the Free Spins or jackpot function via a Caishen Random Award function. This can strike on any turn in the base game or free spins.

The 5 Lions Gold is a versatile and elegant model. The brilliant visuals are very well assembled and the traditional soundtrack fits the theme perfectly. The action of the basic game is quite ordinary but the game can really reach its cruising speed in the Free Spins function thanks to the large multipliers offered. Be careful though, this is a very volatile game with winnings of 7,724.66 times your total bet on each free spin with the 40x multiplier.

The Asian theme is very popular. With its high sound and visual characteristics and its very varied gameplay, 5 Lions Gold should receive great support. Other Pragmatic Play slot machines offer a lot of big wins with The Dog House which can pay 6,750 times your bet for each free spin/rotation.
