Great Golden Lion Slots
Great Golden Lion is a tasteful slot, played on five reels and three rows, and features 243 different ways to win. This Chinese inspired slot features a stunning array of colorful characters, and mystical Chinese inspired cartoons. The game grid is simple enough. The game takes place in a Chinese village. In the background, you can see a variety of houses with colorful rooftops with spiraled edges along with a humble, dirt path that leads me to believe this slot is based more on ancient China than modern China. The Chinese hold the lion symbol in high esteem.
The Chinese lion represents strength, stability and even superiority over others. During festive occasions like holidays, special dances are performed with lion symbolism to lure away evil spirits and attract prosperous times. Even in the Western world, the lion represents power. The game grid takes place in a house and there are two jackpots located on either side of the game grid. There is a control panel located at the bottom, which can be used to spin or auto spin if you prefer. You can also use the + or - button to adjust your bet or press the coin button to maximize bet. You can even press the little purple lightning button to speed up the reels, which can come in handy if you're say participating in a casino tournament, or just want to spin faster. There is a button that you can just use adjust the settings on the right side of the control pane, as well as an information table on the left side of the control panel. This is considered a high volatility slot, so while runs aren't very frequent, when they do come it'll be a generous sum. All symbols on this game board pay from the leftmost side to the right, except the scatter symbol which pays out both ways. This game is available to play in instant play mode, meaning you can play in demo mode for free and you don't need to download anything to play it. It's also mobile phone compatible
This game has a Red Mystery Envelope. This can randomly add a multiplier prize to any spin winnings if you trigger the red Mystery Envelope. During the base game, when a golden coin lands in any position, it'll transform into a red, blue or green coin symbol. The treasure chest is the scatter symbol, and it only appears in the bonus row. When three scatters appear in the bonus row, you'll be awarded 3 re-spins with 3x3 oversized symbols, which will be locked on reels two, three and four.
If you land a single red coin, you might trigger the Jackpot Pick Feature, which will open a game board of Coins that you can reveal. If you uncover three matching Fu God symbols, and win one of the three available jackpots, you'll increase your chances of taking your winnings up a notch. Blue and green coins can activate one of six Hold and Spin Features. Also, if you land the green Lion Coin during the re-spin feature, it'll award a sum of all multipliers on the game board then shift into a golden coin symbol and remain in position for the entirety of your remaining re-spins. The top award for this game is 3,750x your bet.
The special features are elaborate on this game grid, which is a good thing. More than often with Chinese lore inspired slots I often find them to be lacking special features, but that wasn't the case with this particular game. Instead, I had a blast and it felt like the fun was never ending.
