Happy New Year and hello to the new year of 2021. Today we are taking a trip back to the year 2019 to learn all about an older Pragmatic Play slot release.

This slot is a game sequel to the previously released ‘5 Lions’, originally released 16th May 2018. With another game being released in 2020 part of this series. All of these slots have an Asian inspired theme, which is one of the most popular theme choices in the casino industry. The slot background is a basic image with different designed waves and a gold slot border with lion heads above each reel. The best detail can be seen within the various premium symbols artwork.

5 Lions Gold has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 243 – 576 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.5% and max win capped at 7,000x. You can bet from £0.18 – £90.

This slot has 13 symbols in total, which includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by 9,10, J, Q, K, and A. These all have a basic font and a vibrant colour for each. There are also 5 premium symbols represented by turtles, fish, toads, birds, and dragons. The highest paying symbol is the dragon symbol which pays 7x for 5 across all reels. There is also a golden lion symbol for the wild symbol, which only appears on reels 2,3 and 4. Then a ying-yang scatters symbol.

5 Lions Gold Features

In the base game, you have a chance at 3 jackpots, these will be randomly triggered during spins. When reels start turning gold this can trigger one of these jackpots, but you need a minimum of 3 for the Lowest Jackpot. Then 4 gold reels for Major Jackpot and 5 reels for Grand Jackpot. Minor Jackpot = 15x, Major Jackpot = 250x and Grand Jackpot = 2,000x.

To activate the Free Spins feature you need to land 3 scatters, this will award you a pick between 7 different options of spins and multipliers. The lowest is 24 Free Spins with multipliers of 2x,3x, and 5x. The highest at 6 Free Spins with multipliers of 15x,30x, and 40x. But there is also a mystery choice that can give you any of the other choices spins with any of the 3 multipliers. The higher the number of spins and the higher the multipliers the better and more volatile these spins will be. You can retrigger these spins by landing 3 more scatter symbols. When you get a win during these spins the win will be multiplied by one of the multipliers from your pick. This plays identically to the original 5 lions.


Overall, I think this slot has some great qualities and good potential on offer. With multiple jackpots on offer and a max win of 7,000x. Be sure to try out the slot for yourself if you haven’t already. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
