The Lanterns and Lions Hold&Win slot gives you 25 paylines and 5 reels filled with stacks of wilds in the base game and the free spins. And the Hold&Win jackpots are not even the biggest jackpots of the game.
This iSoftbet slot game is one with many layers, far more than its Chinese New Year slot theme would imply.
For one it has very few paytable symbols – 9 to King as low paying and then the golden coins, the firecrackers, the turtle, and the fortune cat as high paytable. That’s just 9 symbols over 25 paylines – your odds of getting wins here are good.
Even more so when the god of fortune shows up, who is the wild symbol and comes stacked on all reels except reel 1. And despite being a major feature, shows up often in the base game.
This is not as easy as it might seem. Your best bet is to hit one of two features, usually by landing the dancing lion scatters. You’ll then get to either:
The first is what you’ll catch more often than not in this Lanterns and Lions slot. And for the most part, we were satisfied – especially with an extra 100 wilds on the screen we easily walked away with over 150x our bet.
The problem is that 150x your bet is about the maximum you can win using the paytable symbols – in the base game or in the free spins bonus round. It can feel a little frustrating if you don’t know when to walk away and quit.
However, the Lanterns and Lions Hold&Win mobile slot are mid to low variance machine at heart. The point is to give you little fortunes to keep you happy and spinning, but not for nothing.
In the Hold&Win Lantern Game (option 2 above) you can win one of four instant jackpots ranging from 50x to 1,000x your bet.
Even more exciting, the red envelope by the side of the reels can randomly shake and give you 8 to 8,888x your bet, which is the biggest win of all.

Stacked Wilds: The god of fortune is the wild symbol and he comes stacked on all reels except 1. He replaces the other symbols to create a win on a payline, but does not substitute for scatters or lanterns.
Lucky Envelope: Triggered randomly on any spin, the red envelope may open and reveal an instant cash prize of 8x, 88x, 888x or 8,888x your bet.
Dancing Lions Feature Pick: Landing 3 lion scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 will trigger the Dancing lions. You'll pick from two of them and win either the free spin bonus or the respin lanterns bonus.
Free Spins: Triggered via the dancing lions, you'll get to play 8, 10, or 12 free spins with added 25, 50, 75, or 100 extra wilds to the reels.
Hold&Win Feature: You can trigger this feature by landing 5 lanterns on the reels or via the dancing lions. You'll then get 3 respins to catch as many lanterns as you can on the now-empty reels. Each of the lanterns will have cash values which you will win at the end of the round.
When a lantern lands, the respins reset to 3. If you go three spins without landing any lanterns, the bonus ends.
You can also win the following jackpots:
The Lanterns and Lions Hold&Win slot machine is a strange beast - a lower volatility slot with a huge top jackpot of 8,888x your bet.
The wins come fairly easy thanks to those stacked wilds, and the free spins certainly gave us enough even-handed wins to make this online slot worthwhile.
However, a paytable that only pays 150x your bet lacks the punch we need and the randomness of the jackpots feels like this game is just a little out of your control.
But then we realised that every video slot online is out of our control and we slapped ourselves as we enjoyed a mid variance game with a hug top win.
Time to take a spin at one of our top iSoftbet slots sites.
