5 Lions

5 Lions Introduction

The mighty Lion is the main theme of many video slots around, and so is the case in 5 Lions, a video slot by Pragmatic Play, a game provider which frequently releases games with a Chinese theme. 5 Lions not only features the Lion as the main protagonist of the online slot, but there are also other creatures inspiring the symbols to further represent the Chinese theme in their slots.

5 Lions is played on a traditional 5 reel by 3 row setup, offering all of 243 ways to win – this means that you can form winning combinations by landing matching symbols on the right reels. You can score pretty hefty wins too, since 5 Lions offers Scatters, Free Spins and a Wild symbol that can reach a multiplier of up to 40x!

5 Lions Game Features

To start playing 5 Lions, click on the “-” or “+” sign at the sides of the spin button to select your wager amount. Choose the bet level and the value of each coin, a setup which allows you to customise your wager amount as you please. The minimum bet amount is of € 0.5 per spin, while the maximum bet is of € 250 – but you can also bet on any amount in between. The game has an RTP of 96.5%, which is rather good compared to what’s out there, and the game also has a high volatility setting.

We also mentioned Free Spins and Multiplier Wilds – let’s have a look at the game’s extras and what they can do for you. 

5 Lions Free Spins and bonuses

The Lion is the main actor here, and this video slot gives him due attention. Not by plastering the reels in Lion symbols, for it can only land on one between reels 2, 3 and 4; however the Lion carries a random multiplier which duly enhances the wins of which it forms part. The winning potential is huge, and you might find yourself roaring with pleasure if you bag the maximum 40x multiplier!

The second important symbol in this slot, which is also popular in Chinese themed slots, is the Yin Yang symbol. Land at least three of these on the reels – either scattered or adjacent to each other – and you will trigger the Free Spins mode. In addition to triggering the Free Spins, you will also receive a payout of 20x.

During the Free Spins mode, the number of ways to win goes up to 576, and you therefore have bigger winning opportunities. Besides this, you will be playing with 3 additional symbols on the middle reels. You can choose the number of Free Spins you want to get too – the higher the number of Free Spins you get, the lower the Wild’s random multiplier will be. You can go for a maximum of 25 Free Spins with wild multipliers of 2x to 5x, or 6 Spins with wilds reaching a maximum multiplier of 15x to 40x. 

5 Lions Payouts

There’s a total of 11 regular symbols on the reels, with the card symbols from 9 to A offering the more modest payouts while the themed symbols (tortoise, fish, toad, eagle and dragon) offer the higher set of payouts in the game.

5 Lions Graphics and Sound

China’s rich culture is clearly the inspiration for many Pragmatic slots, and you surely cannot miss the Chinese influence on this video slot. The symbols are all designed according to Chinese influence, and so is the choice of creatures. The reels are framed in Chinese ornaments too, against a dark blue background, and the general colour scheme is bright and colourful – gold features prominently here too.

5 Lions Conclusion

With interesting features, a high RTP and a relatively high volatility setting, 5 Lions is yet another exciting Chinese-themed slot from Pragmatic Play. Thanks to the potential 40x multiplier, but also the Free Spins, you can have a serious shot at scoring big wins – hoping the Lion also brings you fortune!
