Pragmatic Play’s 5 Lions Megaways slot gives you 117,649 ways to win with wild multipliers, scatters, and free spins where you can choose both the amount you play and the multipliers you get.
There are some beautiful Chinese slot symbols on the reels, from the dragon to the phoenix, to the frog, koi, and turtle as the high-paying symbols. Then you have Ace to 10 completing the set.
The 5 Lions Megaways mobile slot has a classic theme with classic mechanics, with 6 reels where the number of symbols changes row to row. Add tumbling reels, where every win explodes and more tumble down, and you have value for money and quick wins.
The lion is the wild symbol and when he shows up can have a random multiplier of anything from 2x to 40x. That’s in the base game alone.
What is the ante-bet? It’s a small extra debt you can add to your normal spin which doubles your chances to catch the free spins.
How much is a little extra? Well, the 5 Lions Megaways slot minimum bet is 0.20 a spin, and that increases to 0.25. So it really is only a marginally small extra bet, and well worth your while.
Mostly because 3 scatters will trigger the free spin bonus and you get to choose which one you want. So you could pick 25 free spins where the wild multiplier only goes up to 5x or 6 free spins where the wild multiplier ranges from 15x to 40x.
5 Lions Megaways has a mystery choice feature in the free spins. This is where you could get any free spin number and any multipliers on the wild.
In other words, you could win 20 free spins with only high 40x multipliers, or you could get 6 free spins with just 5x multipliers. It’s a gamble.
But it’s one that has paid off nicely for us, because 6 free spins with a high multiplier doesn’t give you much when you think that you can catch a 40x multiplier in the base game.
You need the momentum of the free spins to build up, and for the wilds to show up. It’s frustrating, but in a good way, especially as this is lower variance, but the top win still matches mobile slots like the Book of Dead slot or Trollpot 5,000.

Wild Multiplier: The lion is the wild symbol and can replace all other symbols to substitute any of the others to create a win over 117,649 ways to win. It doesn't show up on reel 1 and won't substitute for the scatter.
When it's a part of a win, a random multiplier will be applied to the win, of 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 30x, and 40x your bet.
Avalanching Wins: When you get a win, the winning symbols will explode and more will tumble from above, giving you another chance for a win.
Free Spins Bonus: 3 Ying and Yang scatter bonus triggers the free spin bonus. You'll then get to pick from the following:
Which multiplier you get is random, and is only applied to wins with the wild symbol.
Ante Bet: For 0.5% of your bet extra you'll double your chances to win the bonus slot feature.
As far as Megaways slots go, this pretty little oriental fayre from Pragmatic Play hits all the right buttons.
You get 117,649 ways to win, you have avalanching wins, you have a multiplier in the wild wins in both the base game and the free spins bonus.
5 Lions Megaways slot is not as hard-hitting as other online slot games in this genre, with only a top win of 5,000x your bet. But that's also part of the fun as the free spin bonus comes often, especially if you use the ante-bet.
