Launched near the end of 2019, Lion Spirit Slot by operator Slot Factory plays across three rows and five reels and has 20 set-in-stone Paylines.
It takes a safari theme, and the King of the Jungle is willing to share his riches if you play your spins right.
It’s smart-looking with plenty of colour and it’s a doddle to start playing, so get stuck in.
How to play
Lion Spirit Slot works well on mobile devices for on-the-move enjoyment. Minimum bet is 0.01, the maximum is 5.
Paylines fork out from left to right, and you can only win once on each separate line. With some symbols, you can scoop a win with just two of them.
Symbols include the usual lower-paying playing-card values, suitably finished with an animal-print design. These join wildlife symbols including a giraffe and gorillas on the reels.
Lion Spirit Slot Special features
The king of the jungle himself is, unsurprisingly, the Wild here. As usual, he replaces regular icons to boost wins, although it can’t substitute for the free spins emblem (also a lion) or help you to snaffle the progressive jackpot (see below).
Lion’s Share free spins
This lovely perk kicks in when three of the free spins symbols pop up anywhere you like on the reels. Four boxes will show up, each containing either a free whirls icon (up to five) or a multiplier of up to 40x.
Choose the latter and apply it before returning to the base game. Use the free spins symbol to enter Lion’s Share free spins mode.
Do this and, if you land three free whirls emblems somewhere on the main reels, you get to skip the four boxes and go straight to the special freebies feature.
In this mode, Wild symbols get stacked three symbols high. And if you land another freebies icon in this mode, the free spins total you have left gets doubled, while an additional bonus whirl is thrown in as well.
Your settings are locked to the value of the last spin you paid for.
As with other games from this provider you’ll need five jackpot icons across an active Payline in Lion Spirit Slot to be in with a chance of winning the jackpot, and this can happen on any bet.
A small percentage (0.025%) of your stake goes to the pot. Half is put into the current total, the remainder kept in a reserve pot for the following winner.
Once the jackpot has been scooped, its value starts to rise once again. The guaranteed value of the jackpot is 400,000 coins, with the potential for it to be even higher.
The current total is always clearly displayed on your screen.
Return to Player
Volatility in Lion Spirit Slot is towards the lower end of the variance spectrum. RTP or Return to Player is 93.98%, based on long-term playback.
While this is notably below the average, it’s also quite typical given the low variance and progressive jackpot.
Lion Spirit Slot is not the first safari-themed slot we’ve seen, and we’re pretty sure it won’t be the last. But the progressive jackpot alone, with its life-changing total pot, would be reason enough to play this game.
Take it for a spin free demo mode first of all, and see if it’s one that works for you.
