Pragmatic Play’s 5 Lions Roars out to Markets Around the Globe
The Maltese online games developer Pragmatic Play has announced the latest addition to the company’s extensive portfolio of high-quality video slots.
Titled 5 LIONS, the new release draws its inspiration from the Chinese mythology, which is quite evident once you start playing this game.
A Familiar Theme
On the reels, players will encounter colourful symbols originating from the Orient, including turtles, frog, fish, the head of a golden lion, which awards multipliers and the Yin Yang symbol that activates potentially lucrative free game features.
The fresh five-reel three-row video slot offers players a total of 243 different ways to win. All you need to do is to line up symbols in the right way and you’ll be rewarded. As usual, you’ll find the game symbols are divided into low-value and top-paying ones.
The former include Chinese-styled playing cards, while among the latter are the golden animal symbols, with a majestic phoenix and a roaring dragon being especially generous.
A symbol you’ll definitely want to see more often is the LION Wild, that not only substitutes for other icons – resulting in additional winning combinations but offers randomly given multipliers that can go up to 40x.
Whenever you land a minimum of three Ying Yang Scatter symbols will activate a special bonus round, where players themselves will be able to choose the number of spins as well as the size of multipliers attached to wins!
Lots of Chances to Win Big
Activating the bonus games will add more symbol positions on the reels, which means the number of ways to win will increase to a total of 576. Before the round actually starts, punters can choose from seven lions, with each of them awarding a different combination of free spins and multipliers.
The options start from a mere 6 free games, with Wild symbols combination ranging between 15x and 40x, and can go up to 25 additional spins, where multipliers ranging from 2x to 5x await.
There’s even an option to let the game choose the number of spins and multipliers, and if lucky enough, the players can grab 25 free spins in combination with the highest multiplier available.
5 Lion is a high volatility game, with an average return to player (RTP) of 96.5%. Developed in HTML5, the new release can be played on a wide variety of devices, with the same level of quality no matter whether they choose to enjoy it on their desktop or mobile.
Commenting on the launch of the new video slot, Chief Commercial Officer at Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield stated the company’s suite of high-quality games continued to go from strength to strength, and 5 Lions was a great addition that they were proud to introduce to their partners and players.
Summerfield said in a press release that the game’s mystical air was complemented by an engaging and visually satisfying array of bonus content, and it certainly had the potential to keep players coming back.
Headquartered in Malta and with offices in the UK, Gibraltar, Ukraine, India and the Philippines, Pragmatic Play today offers an extensive portfolio consisting of more than 100 HTML5 games, which are available to customers in 78 countries around the world. Last month, the company received the prestigious EGR B2B award, further cementing its market positions.
