Lion Gold the Super Stake slot edition, launched in autumn 2020, is a 5×3 safari-themed slot from Stakelogic with 25 ways to win. The background is of the African plain, so it’s one that’s fairly standard for this sort of game.
Here you can choose from one of two Super Stake features which allow you to increase your wager in return for free spins.
How to play
The betting range is quite broad, from 0.10 to 100 a pop. Animal icons including the buffalo, gorilla and lion join the usual playing-card values, Jack, through Ace on the reels.
Before you do anything else, decide whether you want to activate one of two available Super Stake options, as follows:
- Regular Super Stake means that you can sometimes pick up half a dozen wager-free whirls after a base-game spin which hasn’t won. Double your stake for the privilege.
- Mega Super Stake works in the same way, but grants 10 free spins for 2.5x stake.
Lion Gold Super Stake Slot Special Features
The lion’s head icon is your Wild in this slot. It does its usual thing of replacing standard symbols to boost your chances of landing a winning combo, and it’s one of the most lucrative symbols in its own right. There’s also a Scatter, again incorporating a lion image, this time one at sunset, plus a moon Wild – of which more below.
As usual, you’ll need a trio of Scatters from a single spin to launch this. (And it’s worth noting that, while this kicks in outside the Super or Mega Stake options, you’ll enjoy more wager-free whirls if one of them is activated.)
Land five, 10 or 15 freebies for scooping three, four or five Scatters respectively. But that’s not all. You also get the same for similar numbers of Scatters landing during the round itself, along with a 20x win for five of these little beauties. At the same time, you’ll see massive 3×3 symbols on the middle reels, which can fall from every spin to help you bank bigger wins.
Wild Moon Feature
These involve the moon Wilds mentioned above, of which you’ll need half a dozen to initiate this round. The moons become sticky, and you’ll receive a trio of respins to kick off with. This resets to three again if you land at least one further moon while playing.
What’s more, each more symbol has a cash value attached to it. Plus there’s a colossal moon Wild, shelling out at 450x stake. Alternatively, you could win one of the three jackpots mentioned below.
It’s possible to win one of three jackpots in Lion Gold Super Stake, as displayed above the reels, as follows:
- Mega jackpot: 1,000x stake
- Major jackpot: 75x stake
- Mini jackpot: 20x stake
Other prizes could reach a value of 5,300x stake.
Return to Player
Return to Player or RTP here is 96%, i.e. pretty much the industry average. Expect variance to be on the higher side of medium.
Some reviewers have noted that this version of Lion Gold doesn’t offer much that’s new or different from what has been done before. But it’s good to have the two Super Stake choices, and most players should find Lion Gold Super Stake slot fun. Clearly, only you can know if it’s a game that works for you! Take it for a spin in free demo mode before parting with any of your hard-earned cash.
