Pragmatic Play already has two other titles using almost the same name, 5 Lions and 5 Lions Gold. Those games are very similar to each other, this new 5 Lions Dance slot isn’t.
5 Lions Gold uses 5 reels, each 4 symbols high and comes with 1024 ways.
The theme is a pretty generic Asian lions theme, which we’ve seen a lot already, but it is very colorful. The game comes with basic 10, J, Q, K and A symbols and 5 differently colored lions. It also features a wild symbol on all reels and two different bonus symbols. Those bonus symbols can award two different features.
Lion Reel Bonus
Getting three Lion Reel bonus symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 at the same time will start this bonus.
A big wheel on reels 1 and 2 will appear and will spin. It will land on a lion and will award a cash prize of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150 or 200 times your bet.
Free Spins Feature
Get all three scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 at the same time to trigger 10 free spins.
All lion symbols that appear will award your usual win. After this they will all randomly change into one and the same color and pay again.
If you get 3 more scatter symbols during free spins, you will receive 10 more free spins.
I like a lot of Pragmatic Play slot games and 5 Lions (the original, not this one) is one of my favorite games. I don’t like 5 Lions Gold, but I think this one, 5 Lions Dance is fine.
I like the 1024 ways and you can get some nice wins during normal play.
For me the Lion Reel Bonus is a bit boring. Triggering this bonus seems though and all it does is reward a cash prize, which most of the times is only 10, 15 or 20 times your bet.
I do like the free spins feature. If you are able to hit a lot of lions, which all change into one and the same color, can pay a lot. Especially if it will change in the highest paying one, the golden lion. So I think this feature a great.
But overall 5 Lions Dance is a bit basic for me. I am happy that the game is medium volatile, these days almost all releases are high volatile. The maximum win is 2700 times your bet, which for a medium volatile slot game is pretty good.
If you want to play a very colorful slot game that doesn’t hurt your bankroll too much too fast, 5 Lions Dance is a great pick!
