Lion’s Pride Slots

Lion's-PrideLion’s Pride is a lion themed game, pure and simple, though a bit of attention is also brought to their victims, the gazelles and antelopes of the savanna. The lion and its pride (its family), look truly majestic in the symbols of this game, and if you admire Africa and its wonderful wildlife, it’s one of the better slots to play. While most will simply focus on all kinds of predators or safari animals, this one pays attention mostly to the lions, and they are magnificent.

Microgaming managed to cram 100 lines into the 5 reels of Lion’s Pride, while using only three symbols on each reel. The features are impressive as well, especially the multipliers of up to 10x that are used during free spins, but also the scatter and the stacked wild. Given that the wagers are low and there are a lot of lines, it’s understandable that the top prizes are only worth up to $125, but that doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it.

Features of Lion’s Pride

The huge number of paylines is already a good reason to take a look at this slot, but there are also stacked wilds to take advantage of, scatter symbols, free spins and very good multipliers (up to 10x). Read on to find out how you can get them.

With the Lion’s Pride Logo the game tries to help you form new combinations in situations where otherwise you wouldn’t have gotten anything. This symbol acts as a stacked wild, so you always have a good chance of getting more than one wild on the same reel if this feature makes an appearance. With so many lines in the game, it’s not difficult to get the wilds to help out, especially since you get more than one. The same symbols are also responsible for the top jackpot being awarded.

You also have the scatter symbol, the image selected for it being that of an African Mask, which I assume represents the Lion. In a typical manner for a scatter, it has both the ability to trigger prizes and it starts up the round of free spins. The regular prizes take into account the bet you made that round and the number of scatters that are present, and then pay you 1x to 100x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The free spins are especially interesting, the game offering them when 3 to 5 Masks are present in random locations in the game. They can bring you up to 25 free spins, and they have multipliers that are more than impressive. Free spins can be retriggered, with another set of 3+ Masks.


Each round, you get a random multiplier that is applied to any wins that you might have, the values being 10x, 5x, 3x or 2x. Even if you’re unlucky, you still get twice the usual payout, but with a bit of luck you get ten times more.

Betting options and jackpots

It’s not an expensive slot to play, each line getting bets of $0.01 to $0.10, with the maximum bet being at $10. Up to 5 coins of $0.02 can be used for each line.

The 1,250x top payout of Lion’s Pride will bring only up to $125. It’s a very low prize, but then again you only use $10 to cover 100 lines.

Design and symbols

The yellow of the lion’s fur is used in more than a few places around the reels. The playing cards are all colored that way, plus you get about three lion symbols and the logo. The area behind the reels shows you the African savanna, with wild animals roaming free. With the reels encased in hand tied bamboo sticks, Lion’s Pride has a very natural look to it, and it’s a gorgeous slot machine in every way.


Symbols: Logo (wild, 1,250x), Mask (scatter, 100x bet), Lion (1,000x), Lioness (800x), Lion Cub (600x), Zebra (500x), Impala (400x), Ace (200x), King (175x), Queen (150x), Jack (125x) and 10 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s one of the many African wildlife themed slots, but it has its own pros and things that set it apart. The focus on the lion pride is one of them, the quality of the design is another, and the 100 lines that are used also mean a lot for the gameplay.

You will find Lion’s Pride at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
