The Ultimate 5 slot gives you 5 reels and 20 paylines filled with wild animals, wild symbols, and scatters that trigger both free spins or a re-spin instant win feature.
Set in the sunny savannah, these 5×3 reels boast an impressive selection of animals, each powerful in their own way. The Lion is the highest paid of the lot, followed by the Cheetah, then the elephant, the rhino, and the Buffalo. A beautiful slot theme.
Then you have the Ace to 10 symbols, which usually we would say is a lazy way to fill the reels, but here they have a purpose. And the purpose is to make those animals stand out.
Because if you get one of each of the animals on the reels, you instantly get 100x your bet. And that’s not even close to the top win of this Ultimate 5 mobile slot machine.
The first is the 8 to 12 free spins you’ll win by catching 3 to 5 diamond scatters. What makes this The Ultimate 5 slot free spin special is that, randomly, one of the low-paying symbols will be removed.
Technically, by your 5th spin, you could have removed all the low-paying symbols leaving only the animals. And remember, the aim here is not to just catch lions, but all the animals on the paylines for 100x, or even 500x your bet.
It’s exciting, especially when only two scatters will give you +2 spins. The more spins, the more likely you are to get richer reels and more of those famous Pragmatic Play slots big wins.
But AGAIN, this isn’t how you get the biggest win in this Ultimate 5 online slot.
Get 3 burning suns, and that’s when’ll get 3 respins to catch as many suns as you can – each with a value ranging from 1x to 10x. But if they land next to each other, they link up and the values increase.
They can increase enough to change into any of the four in-game jackpot amounts – paying out as little as 25x to 500x your bet.
But what this Ultimate 5 mobile slot game holds is genuine hope. If you manage to get all the burning suns in all 15 places, each one will turn into a 500x your bet symbol, and then you’ll walk away with 5,000x your bet.
It’s rare, but it always feels close enough to be exciting.

Wild: The Tree in the sunset is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols except the free spins and money symbol. It does not substitute for the 5 of a kind with all animal symbols.
5 of a Kind Animals: You'll instantly get 100x your bet if you land all five animals on a payline.
Scatters and Free Spins: Hit 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols in the base game to trigger 8, 10, or 12 free spins. During the free spins, at random, the reel sets level up, progressively removing the lowest value symbol from the reels.
First, the 10 is removed, then the J, then the Q, then K, and finally A. On every level up, the wild symbol is guaranteed to land.
You can retrigger the free spins with only 2 scatters (getting you +2 spins).
Hold & Spin Super Boost: The sun is the money symbol and appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. Get three and you'll trigger this bonus, where you spin to catch more of these sun symbols in 3 respins.
Each time they connect horizontally or vertically, they lock into place and the amount inside is boosted. Each time a sun lands it resets the spins to 3. If you get 3 spins with no sun symbols, the bonus ends.
The money values take a random value of: 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8, 10x your bet.
And then here are the four jackpots:
You can only catch one jackpot symbol on the reels at a time, except if you fill all 15 positions. Then, all the positions are filled and linked, and all the money values are boosted to the highest value: Mega.
The Ultimate 5 slot machine is big and bold, with 5 animals ruling the reel, competing for your favour.
We like that the hold and spin feature is where you get the 5,000x your bet max win, but you still get free spins with an increasing chance of getting something decent.
Nothing is wasted, nothing is boring, even the base game gives you a few thrilling wins to keep you rolling in this savannah.
