Five Lions Gold Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play has announced another slot to be released in the upcoming months. We have a lot to look forward to from the provider this year with many different features and some new themes. But their new slot is another Asian inspired themed release, unfortunately, which are just getting boring for me personally. This new slot is titled ‘Five Lions Gold‘ and has a set release date of ‘13th June‘. Let’s find out more in our 5 Lions slot review.

This slot is a kind of sequel to ‘5 Lions‘ which was released in May 2018 by Pragmatic but just reminds me of other asian inspired slots like ‘Treasure Horse‘ for example. The slots look identical including most statistics. The only big difference is the addition of a jackpot feature which is seen in a lot of pragmatic releases. This slot has very basic visuals with a basic blue background image, then the Asian inspired slot border and symbol designs.

This slot has a setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, which includes 243 ways. Pragmatic Play has rated 5 Lions Gold 5/5 for volatility, which is debatable with a max win of 7,000x and a set RTP of 96.52%. In the free spins feature the set multiplier can go up to 40x and bets of £0.18-£90 which are interesting stake values due to the win ways.

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 high paying 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, only appears on reels 2,3 and 4. Then a ying-yang scatter symbol.

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 being 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 which 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, this slot has some volatility but it just identical to the original 5 lions. Besides the jackpot feature addition which is seen in a lot of pragmatic slot releases. It is a shame the provider doesn’t move away from Asian inspired themed slots and try something new but at least it can pay. Be sure to try this slot out for yourself 13th June. It will be available on all sites. Remember to also check out our Twitch stream for more awesome action.
