5 Lions Gold is, of course, an Asian-themed slot with majestic golden lions and all sorts of symbolic stuff relating to wealth. To make things even more interesting, though, this slot offers you plenty of opportunities to grasp for that sweet wealth and those mighty riches yourself as well!

243 ways to win
Most Pragmatic Play slots out there have fixed paylines in place, but not 5 Lions Gold. In this game, you have 243 ways to win, meaning that every imaginable payline is in use. From the leftmost reel to the four reels after it, you can create all kinds of winning combinations. No need to remember all the different lines here since everything goes!
Random features galore
The free spins mode in 5 Lions Gold is pretty crazy in and of itself, and we will get to it in just a moment. Before that, though, let us look at the two different random features that could trigger any time during your regular spins (or free spins). These features are called “Caishen Random Awards” and are named after Caishen, a Chinese mythical figure prominent in both Taoism and folk religion.
- Free spins. Well, will you look at that: in 5 Lions Gold, you don’t even always have to get three scatters on your screen to trigger the free spins mode. Instead, you might sometimes get them for free. Thank you very much!
- Jackpot bonus game. Who doesn’t like pick-and-click bonuses? In 5 Lions Gold, you will have 9 coins to choose from, each hiding behind them one of three jackpot symbols. The feature ends once you uncover three of the same kind. There are no losers here!
Golden reels jackpot
Much like in the jackpot bonus game awarded by Caishen, there are 3 jackpots to be won in the base game of 5 Lions Gold as well. Getting your hands on these suckers will require you to spin a little bit of golden colour onto your screen. Land three golden reels at any time and you are in for the minor jackpot, worth 15 times your total bet. Four golden reels, on the other hand, will give you the major jackpot, worth 150 times your total bet. Fill your whole screen with 5 golden reels, however, and the amazing grand jackpot will be yours! Grand jackpot is worth a whopping 2000 times your total bet!
Free spins with freedom to choose
You would think that we would be done with all the 5 Lions Gold bonus features by now, but we haven’t even introduced you to the spectacular free spin mode yet!
The way to the free spins mode in 5 Lions Gold goes through 3 yin-yang scatters on reels 2 to 4. Before the reels start rolling, however, you have a very thrilling decision to make. This comes to you with 7 choices:
- 25 free spins with multipliers 2X, 3X, and 5X
- 20 free spins with multipliers 3X, 5X, and 8X
- 15 free spins with multipliers 5X, 8X, and 10X
- 13 free spins with multipliers 8X, 10X, and 15X
- 10 free spins with multipliers 10X, 15X, and 30X
- 6 free spins with multipliers 15X, 30X, and 40X
- Random number of free spins with random multipliers
The six first choices are rather self-explanatory, but the mystery choice will give you a random number of free spins with a mystery multiplier range. In other words, if you are lucky, you could even get 25 free spins with the highest of multipliers. Or, alternatively, you could get only 6 free spins with the lowest of multipliers…
No matter what you choose, your multipliers will be given to you with all winning combinations that have at least one wild in them. The multiplier will then be displayed at the end of your spin.
A whole bundle of fun
No matter how you look at it, 5 Lions Gold is a worthy sequel to 5 Lions—and a remarkably great online casino slot with tons of stuff to be excited about!
