50 Lions slot review
The first time I came across 50 Lions slot was in about 2006 on a trip to Vegas. According to sources online it has been around since 2003, having been developed in Australia by slots manufacturer Aristocrat. My first memory of this game was the huge amounts of stacked wilds that seem to come up time and time again on the reels.
It has since been released online under license by Aristocrat to a select number of online casinos. 50 Lions is not the first game that trips off the tongue when you think about all of Aristocrat's portfolio, but I tend to think that it holds its own very well for being unique in both theme and in features.
A Maximum Win of 40,000 coins
Having played a real money version of the online slot game I can tell you that it is very similar to the land-based 50 Lions slot. The main difference is the size of the maximum win, which is normally 10,000 coins but can be up to 40,000 coins online.
Win 10 Free Spins in the Free Spins Bonus Round
As well as multiple Stacked Wilds, 50 Lions slot has a bonus round which is triggered when you get the flower Scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3. This releases 10 free spins, which are not multiplied. You can re-trigger the bonus by hitting the same scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 again, this will give you an extra 5 free spins. There are also some extra Wilds in the bonus round, which can increase your wins.
Win Big with the Stacked Wilds
The big wins I have had on this game are when you hit the Stacked Wilds on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. If you hit a row of lions then you can get some huge payouts. One word of caution, this game can be so absorbing that you can get hooked on it very easily. It’s best to play it in small amounts and limit the number of spins you play. Please allow time for the game to load, it can take a while on slow connections.
50 Lions definitely trumps other Aristocrat slots like the Egyptian-themed Queen of the Nile 2 and the Mexican fiesta slot More Chilli for me, but it can take longer to hit the bonus round than most others. This is because it is a high volatility slot, meaning rewards may take longer to arise, but when they do they can be really big. If you have the patience to wait that little bit longer for the big prizes then this is worth the play. If you want a fast-paced gaming experience then you might want to look elsewhere. My suggestion is to try Pelican Pete, which is a bit less volatile than 50 Lions, but still a very enjoyable slot game. 50 Lions has an RTP of 94.71%, which is below the level of may online slots these day.Review by Gamingslots
