What is this mobile slot about?

With multipliers ranging from 2x to 40x on the wild during the free spins, this 5 Lions slot gives you lots and lots (too much?) choices.

The Safari slot theme in this Pragmatic mobile game isn’t much to shout about. You’ve got golden animals in the shape of a turtle, a koi, a dog, a phoenix and a dragon. The high paying symbols.

Then you have Ace to 9 as the low paying ones, all covering an ornate golden 5×3 reels with 243 ways to wins. It’s not extraordinary, but then Pragmatic aren’t about creating original themes.

Hot Safari is a simple African game, and Gold Rush slot is all about mining. Yet both have superb mechanics. Can this 5 Lions slot compare?

Can I pick my multiplier on the wild symbols?

Only during the free spin bonus game. 3 scatters will let you choose between 7 possible options.

You can either get lots of free spins and smaller multipliers or very few free spins and huge multipliers – up to 40x the symbol win.

That’s huge, and leads to massive wins, especially if you are brave and pick the bigger multipliers over the free spins.

The good news is that the base game doesn’t lack action either. The Wild symbol can randomly come with a 2x up to 40x multiplier when it’s part of a win, which means any spin can be eye-popping.

So what’s the problem with this 5 Lion slot?

There are really two problems, both of which is partly because of how volatile this 5 Lions video slot has been set.

  1. With the multipliers on the wilds only, a win doesn’t often lead to massive results
  2. The multiple choices over the free spins can leave you frustrated when you pick the wrong one, especially as they don’t come around very often.

That said, the reels during the free spins increase from 342 to 576 ways to win, increasing your odds of getting wins and wilds so there’s that.

Too volatile for its own good

But, in our opinion, this 5 Lions slot game is just a little too volatile to be truly enjoyable and has too many dead spins to make the payoff worthwhile.

There are big wins here if you have the kind of patience that loves games like the Kronos slot or Pixies of the Forest slot.

But otherwise, something a little more action-packed, like Afterlife Inferno, is probably the way to go.

In-game bonus features

Wild with Random Multiplier: The Golden Dragon head is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win.

It also comes with a possible multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 30x, or 40x.

Scatter and Free Spins: Three or more Yin and Yang scatter symbol will trigger the free spins.

The middle three reels will increase by one symbol, turning this into a 576 ways to win slot machine.

Here you'll get to pick from one of 7 possible bonus games:

  • 25 free spins with a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier on the wild
  • 20 free spins with a 3x, 5x or 8x multiplier on the wild
  • 15 free spins with a 5x, 8x or 10x multiplier on the wild
  • 13 free spins with a 8x, 10x or 15x multiplier on the wild
  • 10 free spins with a 10x, 15x or 30x multiplier on the wild
  • 6 free spins with a 15x, 30x or 40x multiplier on the wild
  • Random selection from the options above

If you get three scatters during the 5 Lions free spins, you'll get to reselect at the end of your current free round.


Closing thoughts

It's not that this 5 Lions mobile slot doesn't deserve a few spins. By all means, give it a go if you want to hit those 40x multipliers, not many games dare to give you that much.

But it has a high minimum bet for a 243 ways to win slot machine; 0.50 a spin. The 250 max bet also give us a clue that this is really aimed at risk-taking high rollers who just want to take 5 spins with a 'go big or go home' attitude.

We can certainly see the appeal, but this is one Pragmatic slot for when it's the end of the night, and you just want to run through your cash on a couple of big bets.

Otherwise, there's plenty of friendlier games like the Book of Gods 243 ways to win slot which has a minimum bet of 0.10 and won't burn through your cash quite so fast.
