The players who follow Pragmatic Play slots will immediately notice that 5 Lions Gold is not a completely new slot. More precisely, it is new, but it is made as an exact copy of 5 Lions, the slot released in 2018. Technically, 5 Lions Gold is the same five-reel slot with 243 ways to generate winnings. It is distinguished with the difference in the paytable and the bets provided in these two models. However, the most important distinguishing feature is that in 5 Lions Gold you have the opportunity to win one of three jackpots.
Visually, the 5 Lions Gold slot has not undergone any changes. It remained the Asian-themed slot dedicated to the majestic lions that guarded the emperor’s treasures. The playing field is set against the dark blue background, and the reels are surrounded by a gold frame, giving the slot even more beauty and richness. On these reels, you will see the symbols you know about from the first version.
They are card names from 10 to A, figurines in the form of fish, turtles, birds, frogs, and dragons. The last symbol is the most profitable and can bring a winning that is seven times higher than your initial bet for the combination of five such symbols. The game also provides two special symbols. The first one is the lion’s head that is the wild. It is used to replace all symbols in the slot, except for the scatter (yin yang) that starts the free spins feature.
