Pragmatic Play Releases Newest Asian-themed Slot Game
- October 20, 2020 By Riley Wilson -
Pragmatic Play is continuing their spree of tightly-packed new releases. They’ve promised 5 new online slot games per month – and so far they’ve delivered. The newest casino game by Pragmatic Play to hit the web is dubbed 5 Lions Dance. It should be available on all Pragmatic Play online casinos following October 15th 2020.
A quick look at the 5 Lions Dance slot game makes its far east theme clear as day. The soundtrack and UI design are in line with these visual choices. Also, the whole title is marked by the characteristic Pragmatic Play interface with all the usual options.
However, the development studio has gone on record saying that 5 Lions Dance slots’ main draw are the features. Looking over the paytable, it seems they were quite serious. This game features wilds, scatter symbols, a multiplier reel, free spins, and a Megaways-like approach to paylines. All of these combine into a solid 96.5% RTP rate.
Dozens of Features – a Single Slot Game
So how do all of these fit together? Well, this is a 5-reel, 4-row video slot game with non-fixed betways. Essentially, it doesn’t matter which row the symbols appear on. As long as you arrange at least 3 of them left-to-right, you’ve got a winning combination. This implies just over 1,000 possible winning combinations.
The Wilds and Scatters don’t need much explanation. However, the Lion Reel is a different matter together. This massive symbol can appear on reels 3, 4, or 5. When it hits, reels 1 and 2 become a single massive reel which spins for direct money rewards. Furthermore, special bonus symbols can grant free spins and other goodies.
We’re glad to see the break-neck release schedule hasn’t affected Pragmatic Play’s originality.
