If you like very volatile action with an Asian flavour, then 5 Lions, this version of Pragmatic Play could be exactly what you are looking for. This is a 5-reel slot machine, 243 ways to win with wild multipliers that can increase payouts up to 40 times. There are also free spins where a number of combinations of free spins and wild multipliers are available. The stakes range from 50p to £250 per spin.

There is a traditional touch to design here. A selection of golden animals is added to the lower value from A to 9 values. You will see turtles, fish, frogs and birds circling the reels. The most lucrative symbol is the dragon that pays you 1, 2 or 20 times your total bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on adjacent reels.

Landing on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, the golden lion is the wild game animal. Catch a winner who includes the golden lion and he will receive a multiplier bonus – he is randomly chosen and can send winnings of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 30x or 40x.

There is only one round out of 5 Lions, but it’s a good one. To trigger the Free Spins function, you will need to place 3, 4 or 5 of the dispersion (the Tao yin and yang symbol) on the same tower. You will receive a payment of 2, 5 or 20 times your bet. A selection of free combinations of spin and multipliers will then be offered to you:

  • 25 free games with 2x, 3x or 5x wild multipliers
  • 20 free games with 3x, 5x or 8x wild multipliers
  • 15 free games with 5x, 8x or 10x wild multipliers
  • 13 free games with 8x, 10x or 15x wild multipliers
  • 10 free games with 10x, 15x or 30x wild multipliers
  • 6 free games with 15x, 30x or 40x wild multipliers

The other possible choice is the Mystery Package. This offers 1 random set of free spins (up to 25) and a random set of multipliers (up to 40x). These free spins are played on 576 ways to win machines.

Hope to see 3 diffusers land on adjacent coils (from coil 1) during the game as they will trigger a new series of free spins. These take place after the current selection. You can choose a new combination of free rotation and multiplier here. It’s a very volatile game. We came out with very little after a few free-rotating triggers, but we took it at other times.

There is enough to please about 5 Lions. The simple gameplay works very well and wild multipliers can have a real punch, especially in the Free Spins function. The endless treadmill of the Chinese theme slot machines shows no sign of slowing down – 5 Lions is certainly one of the best… I also recommend you to try some of Pragmatic Play’s other offers with Jurassic Giants a great choice.
