5 Lucky Lions Slot Machine
Try Habanero Slots
Habanero has a fresh new slot to share with its fans, called 5 Lucky Lions. It is a slot with an unusual number of ways to win, 88 actually, and is based on the lion and its importance to the Chinese culture. The lion is present in most of the Chinese-themed slots, so it is no wonder Habanero has used it as well, and as suggested by the title, we will see it represented in 5 symbols.
There are not that many special features included in 5 Lucky Lions, however, those present will provide you with some awesome gaming time.
The Wild in the slot is the teeny tiny Chinese old man that holds drums in his hands, which will replace for all regular symbols in the formation of new winning combos, but not for Scatters. The Wild will also give you one of the highest paying rewards in the game if you manage to land it on all 6 reels.
The Scatters in the slot are the Drums. Should you land 6 Scatters, you can reach rewards of up to 100x the stake. The Scattered Drums also help you trigger the Bonus Pick. The Bonus Pick is the picking feature where you get 5 Lion Mask to choose from. By clicking on one of them, you get 8 to 18 Free Spins. The Lion Mask you have selected will actually be present on the reels for the Free Spins, while all the other masks will be removed. The trick here is that the bigger payouts one lion gives, the less Free Spins it rewards you with in comparison with another lion mask. So you can either pick a lion which will give you a smaller payout but get a larger number of Spins, or pick a lion which will give you 8 Free Spins but pays out later on when it appears on the reels during the Spins.
Theme & Design
When you load the game, you can notice the old Chinese temples in the background, with their pointy edges, and the beautiful lotus flowers at the bottom of the reels.
The five lions, the red, pink, purple, green and the orange lion are the high-win symbols, while the playing card symbols from 9 through A are the low-win symbols.
We must say that we're not that impressed with the design of this slot since Habanero has had many far better releases. The graphics used are perfect, though.
Wagering & Paylines
Since there are 88 ways to win, you can place a bet on 5 Lucky Lions depending on the coin value from $0.01 to $5.00 and the bet level from 1 to 10. Therefore, the minimum bet you can place is $0.88 while the maximum is $4,400.00.
Payout-wise, the game can deliver a 1,000x the stake payout, which is more than $4 million. Now, this is where Habanero has put its potential, clearly. But that’s not all. There are also offers three progressive jackpots that you can win! With an RTP that increases from 96.51% to 96.79%, depending on your bets, we can safely say that this is a big win slot game.
While doing our review, we must admit that we were not initially impressed by what it had to offer. But as we went on and started playing, we noticed its true potential. Over $4 million for grabs in addition to three progressive jackpot is an outstanding payout potential. So, ignore the game’s design and start spinning the reels of 5 Lucky Lions to get really lucky!
