You can hear the roar of Lions from miles around with the Lions Pride slot from Microgaming. A slot that’s got a really nice feel to it, Lions Pride follows through Safari based lands in an attempt to find that pot of money at the end of the planes.
What you get on Lion’s Pride is a 5 reel, 100 payline game which provides some of best value we have seen. The return to player of 96% makes it one of Microgaming’s more generous offerings, but this is essentially a low volatile slot that should provide a good amount of playing time for its users. The slot includes bonus games, free spins, wilds and scatter symbols to boot.
As a rule, we aren’t the biggest fans of safari themed slots. But this one tends to have more about it than most. First up, the graphics look really slick and even though you still get some of the old school 10-A cards, there are also images of lions, zebra, antelope, wild symbols and scatters to keep it feeling rather fresh.
We will start with the Lions Pride symbol, which just so happens to be that of the wild symbol as well. This will substitute all symbols except for scatters and will probably the symbol you will see the most in your time playing. Once into the free spins section is where you likely get most value from your wilds though, as the multipliers involved often make for lucrative paylines.
The scatter symbol is that of the Aztec looking mask and these are more elusive than we would probably have liked. However, once you manage to get three or more masks then you will be able to get into the free spins section where you will pick up a more than generous 25 free spins. This will include a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x or even 10x your winnings. It’s also worth noting that these free spins can be re-triggered so the potential for 50 or more free spins is a definite possibility.
Finally the game includes a pick and play feature section, which seems to appear at random times or at least we couldn’t find a pattern when hitting this. It’ another elusive feature on the game but once in will allow you to either double or even quadruple your winnings from any winning payline selecting the right suit to double your money or the right card and suit to quadruple it.
