Pragmatic Play – 5 Lions – Free Game

The game art is exquisitely rendered, with hints of gold flowing through the symbols and background elements, creating a magical feeling of prosperity. The lion is wild and applies a random multiplier to the wins it is involved in. Of the 11 regular symbols, the dragon is the highest paying and awards 20x bet for 5 of a kind. It is followed by the phoenix, the frog, the fish and the turtle. The ace, king, queen, jack, 10 and 9 make up the low symbols. The Yin Yang symbol is the scatter.

5 Lions features

5 Lions comes with an epic free spins feature, but before we talk about that, it’s worth mentioning the random multiplier that boosts wins with a wild in the base game. The possible multiplier values are 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 15, 30 and 40x. The presence of these multipliers gives players the opportunity to be very lucky when they try to trigger free spins.

Free spins

To unlock the free spins feature, 3, 4 or 5 scatters must land on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. This is a departure from the standard slot functionality, where scatters can land anywhere on the reels. Landing 3, 4 and 5 scatters will award you an additional 2x, 5x or 20x your bet. During the feature, an additional symbol position is added on reels 2, 3 and 4, increasing the number of winning opportunities to 576. The feature includes seven bonus games, each of which offers a different multiplier range and number of spins:

  • 25 free spins with 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier.
  • 20 free spins with 3x, 5x or 8x multiplier
  • 15 free spins with 5x, 8x or 10x multiplier
  • Mystery Choice – a mystery number of spins and a multiplier range, both chosen from the other free spins options
  • 13 free spins with 8x, 10x or 15x multiplier
  • 10 free spins with 10x, 15x or 30x multiplier
  • 6 free spins with 15x, 30x or 40x multiplier

If 3 or more scatters land on adjacent reels during the feature, starting from the one furthest to the left, a new free spins round will begin after the current round. Players can select a different free spins option before the new round begins, and the number of retriggers is unlimited.

The 200 Spins 5 Lions Experience

We put 5 Lions through the 200 spins test that we subject every game we review in the slots catalog to. And here is what we found.

Our first spins are largely uneventful, but a few spins later we land scatters on the first 3 reels – free spins times! All seven free spins options look tempting, but in the end we decide to exercise caution and select the last option – 6 spins with a multiplier range of 15, 30 and 40x. For us, this doesn’t work as all of our spins are non-winners and we only end the feature with the $1 we won when we triggered it. We decide to try a different option the next time we trigger the feature, and think we’ve done just that when we land scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. We take a moment to remember that not only do the scatters this must be next to each other, but the first one must be on the far left. We continue our efforts and once again manage to trigger free spins. This time we opt for Mystery Choice. We get only 6 spins with a relatively low multiplier range of 8, 10 or 15x. We manage 3 winning spins, with an 8x wild multiplier applied each time. This leaves us with the feature with 21x our triggering bet.

While our balance after completing our test is lower than what we started with, it is obvious that the bonus holds a lot of winning potential. We’ll be back to experience the free spins options that we haven’t tried yet.


5 Lions has a lot to recommend it, from the stunning art to the wild multipliers to the win potential. Of course, the free spins feature is the star of the show, whether you opt for the maximum number of spins with the lowest multipliers, the lowest number of spins with the highest multipliers, or anything in between.
