How to Play 5 Lucky Lions

Set within an old, moss covered temple surrounded by ancient statues you meet 5 Lucky Lions and transfer to Ancient China. When you spin the reels you might think you are at a Chinese Ney Year parade with colourful lions and dancing symbols. The background music is also traditional Chinese and very soothing.


Overall this slot has 13 symbols paying up to 100x over 88 fixed paylines.

The high paying symbols are 5 lions, each having its own colour: red, pink, yellow, purple and green. The red lion is the best high paying one while the green one is the lowest paying of the high win symbols.

In addition, there are 6 low win symbols all in gold with the letters A, K, Q and J as well as the numbers 9 and 10.

The Wild symbol which can substitute all other symbols to create big wins is a smiling, cymbal holding Chinese character.

Moreover, there is the red drum scatter symbols which pays – drumrolls – a great 100x your stake.

Will the lions rain you good fortune or bring destruction in this 88 paylines slot? You might know that number 8 is a lucky number in Chinese belief so hopefully the 88 paylines of 5 Lucky Lions slot bring you good fortune and wealth.


Free Spins bonus round

Land 3 or more red drum scatter symbols on the reels and you enter the free spins bonus round. At the start of it you pick one of the 5 dragons. Whichever one you chose it will be the only one that appears during the free spins. Moreover before each free spin 4 of the selected lion symbols are stacked on any of the 6 reels. As the lions have different values lower ones award you more free games than the higher paying ones.

  • Red Lion = 8 free games
  • Pink Lion = 10 free games
  • Yellow Lion = 12 free games
  • Purple Lion = 15 free games
  • Green Lion = 18 free games

So, pick the right lion and discover a wealth of riches and rewards. But beware, good fortune awaits only the bravest of players.


The game features usually a progressive jackpot but it is not activated across the 3 South African betting sites which have the game. But on Hollywoodbets it is included in the Spina Zonke Jackpot Races. The same applies to Supabets’ jackpot race. Hence you can win additional cash on top of your winnings by spinning this slot.
