5 Lions Dance Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play is one studio who loves to announce its slot releases very early on. With some weeks and some months in advance for the casino community to wait for. I recently reviewed ‘Wild Wild Riches Luck Of The Irish‘, which has a saturated theme and some interesting features to redeem the game. One slot coming soon is titled ‘5 Lions Dance‘, set to release 15th October across all sites.

5 Lions Dance has the typical Asian inspired theme, which is popping up more and more by studios this year. Pragmatic Play already has such a long list of Asian inspired games and now adding to this list. The slot background looks to be set in an Asian city, with tall buildings, lanterns and other small details. There are also some small animations such as lanterns moving in the wind and bird flying in the sky. The artwork has eye-catching detail and visuals work well together for the set theme.

This slot has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 1,024 pay lines. 5 Lions Dance is a medium variance game with a set RTP of 96.5% and max win capped at 2,700x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Landing 3 Lion Reel symbols during one spin will trigger the ‘Bonus‘. When this feature starts reels 1 and 2 become fully expanded. With only multipliers for your bet size. The lion reel spins once and awards a random value of 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 150x or 200x.

Landing 3 scatter symbols during one spin will award the ‘Free Spins Feature‘, awarding 10 free spins. During spins, all lion head premiums that hit will transform into another lion head premium and pay again. Special reels are in play and landing 3 scatters during a free spin awards 10 additional spins with no limits.


Overall, I think this slot bored within the visuals and theme. But makes up for this with the medium variance and max win capped at 2,700x. Along with two different exciting bonus features. Be sure to try the slot out for yourself on release. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
