5 Lions Gold Slot Machine
Try Pragmatic Play Slots
The oriental slot design seems to have become Pragmatic Play’s favourite. In its newest release 5 Lions Gold, the developer presents a lavish Asian-themed slot with all symbols on the reels symbolic to the culture. The gold is in the centre of the culture, therefore, the developer has included 3 jackpot prizes in the slot for you to win.
The Wild in the slot is the Golden Fu Lion, which except for the Scatter, replaces for all regular symbols on the reels in the creation of winning combos.
You have two ways to reach the gold, ergo the three jackpots. To get to the Minor 15x the stake, Major 250x the stake or Grand 2,000x the stake jackpot, you need to go through the Golden Reels Jackpot Feature or the Caishen Random Award. Now, if the first one triggers at random, up to 5 reels turn to gold. This can happen both during the base game and the Free Spins bonus. To get to the Minor, Major or Grand jackpot, you need 3, 4 or 5 Golden Reels, respectively.
If the second one triggers at random in either the base or the Free Spins bonus game, you either get the jackpot bonus game or you trigger the Free Spins. If you get the jackpot bonus game, you get to pick out of several Golden Coins and match 3 of the same jackpot symbols to get rewarded with the corresponding jackpot prize.
And now, the most rewarding feature. In case you’ve won the Free Spins with the Caishen Random Award, or you’ve landed the Scatter on the middle reels simultaneously, you activate the Free Spins. You get to choose one of seven options giving you tailored combo of Multipliers and Free Spins. The most volatile choice is Multipliers of 15x, 30x or 40x during 6 Free Spins, while the least volatile is Multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x during 24 Free Spins! But you can also choose the Mystery option where the number of Free Spins and the Multipliers will be awarded at random. This is when you can win up to 7,000x the stake!
Theme & Design
Nothing special happens on the background of the reels in 5 Lions Gold. You get a Chinese-style décor in navy blue and light blue representing the clouds and waves, and at the centre, you get the gold-framed reels.
On the reels, you see the high-value toads, turtles, Fenghuang birds, koi fish, and dragons. The lowest-paying playing card Royals are present as well.
Wagering & Paylines
5 Lions Gold is a 243 ways to win slot, and Pragmatic Play has given you a great betting range for it. You get to place bets from $0.18 and up to $90.00. The RTP varies due to the jackpots present and goes from 95.64% to 96.52%.
The best combo with the highest-paying Dragon symbol gives you 7x the stake. Clearly, there are so many Multipliers involved in the gameplay that can eventually take you to a 7,000x the stake payout. Considering the $90.00 max bet, this means that you could win up to $630,000.00! The game is highly volatile so you can hit this prize when you least expect to!
Even though you might not be impressed by the theme and symbols present on the reels, nor fascinated with the theme presentation, you will definitely appreciate the payout potential in this slot. The 7,000x the stake payout is really something, something you would look forward to winning. Therefore, it is clear that Pragmatic Play intentionally shifted its focus from the visuals to the max win potential, and made the right decision. We are all after the wins, right?
