The 5 Lions Dance slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play should now be considered an established software provider, with a fairly prolific output. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for 5 Lions Dance is 3.5%.
5 Lions Dance has 5 reels and each reel has 4 symbol spaces in it. Instead of paylines you form wins when you land 3 or more matching symbols across 3 or more adjacent reels. There are 1024 different ways to win in total.
Theme – This slot has an Asian theme. There are temples, dragons and the predominant colours are golds and reds.
Wild – The Wild is the “Gold Ball”. It will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters and Bonus symbols. Wilds only appear on reels 2-5.
Scatters – You need to land 3 or more of the Free Spins symbols to trigger the feature. Scatters only land on reels 1-3.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Lion Reel” symbol. You need to land 3 or more of them on the reels to trigger the Bonus feature. Bonus symbol only appear on reels 3, 4 and 5.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 10 Free Spins. During the spins, every time a “Lion Head” symbol lands on the reels, once all symbols have paid out, it will transform into another “Lion Head” symbol, giving you a chance to win again. The feature retriggers when you land 3 Scatters during it.
Bonus – If you trigger the Bonus then you will see the first 2 reels turn into a wheel that you spin. The Wheel is filled with multipliers and whatever one it lands on, that will be applied to the bet, giving you an instant cash win.
The 5 Lions Dance slot is a well-designed one and is in a way a part of a franchise of slots that developed by Pragmatic play. There have been other lion themed, Asian slots and this one looks as good as any of those. You get Free Spins, Wilds and a Bonus, but ultimately there is nothing all that exciting or different about this one. The house edge is good but if you do play this one, I suspect it won’t be for very long.
