5 Lions Megaways Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
It has only been a couple of days since my last Pragmatic Play slot review. Which was for the game titled ‘Lucky Lightning’. Lucky Lightning has a max win capped at 10,100x and Free Spins feature with a wild respin mechanic on offer. Today we are learning all about an exciting game sequel titled ‘5 Lions Megaways’, set to release June 24th across all sites.
The original game is titled ‘5 Lions Gold‘ and was released on 27th May 2019. Followed by the release of ‘5 Lions Dance‘, which was released on 15th September 2020. All of the games in the series have an Asian-inspired theme, with vibrant symbols and golden ascents on the reel set. Now we have the iconic Megaways tool to improve gameplay and volatility on offer.
5 Lions Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2-7 rows, this includes up to 117,649 Megaways. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.50% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £125.
5 Lions Megaways Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by tortoises, fish, toads, birds, and dragons. In addition to these regular symbols is Lion Wild and Yin Yang scatter symbols. The highest paying symbol is the dragon premium, which pays 25x for 6 across all reels. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the yin yang scatter and appears on reels 2 – 5.
5 Lions Megaways Features
There is a ‘Tumble Feature‘ active during spins. All symbols part of winning combinations will disappear. The remaining symbols will drop to the bottom of the reel set and new symbols of the same size will fall to replace empty spaces. Tumbles continue until no more winning combinations occur.
When a Wild symbol is part of a win a random multiplier is applied to all winning combinations with a wild. Possible multipliers are 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 30x and 40x.
Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins Round. There are 7 different options for the number of Free Spins and possible wild multipliers. These options are;
25 Free Spins = 2x, 3x, and 5x Wild Multiplier.
20 Free Spins = 3x, 5x, and 8x Wild Multiplier.
15 Free Spins = 5x, 8x, and 10x Wild Multiplier.
13 Free Spins = 8x, 10x, and 15x Wild Multiplier.
10 Free Spins = 10x, 15x and 30x Wild Multiplier.
6 Free Spins = 15x, 30x and 40x Wild Multiplier.
Mystery = Mystery number of Free Spins and possible wild multipliers
During the Free Spins Round when a wild is part of a winning combination, a random multiplier from the range selected applies to all winning combinations with a wild. Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during a Free Spin will award a retrigger and award the same number of spins initially awarded. Special reels are in play.
There is an Ante Bet option available. Bet multiplier 20x = Normal Play and Bet Multiplier 25x = the chance to trigger the Free Spins naturally is doubled.
If available in your country there is a Bonus Buy Option. With the price of 100x to trigger the Free Spins Feature.
Overall, I think this slot is a well-made game sequel and has a lot of potential with the addition of Megaways. With a max win capped at 5,000x and Free Spins feature with multipliers up to 40x depending on your pick. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
