Celebrate the New Year in Style
Fortune Lions is an exuberant Chinese-inspired slot game with fireworks and the beautiful cityscape of Shanghai in the background. With golden lion statues, red paper lanterns and floating flowers on the sea, Fortune Lions is an explosion of colours and style that we immediately fell in love with.
If you are looking a discrete game, Fortune Lions is clearly not the right choice for you. But if you are not afraid of colourful animations and impressive graphics, you have come to the right place. Let’s see if the gameplay is as fun in our next section here.
Get the Fireworks Ready
Fortune Lions benefits for a large 5×4 setup with 50 paylines available at every turn. The up and down arrows in the red command bar under the reels are here to let you bet from 0.50 to 25 credits per turn in total, which is a little too short for a betting range in our opinion. You can use the autoplay game mode to choose a new wager and place it on several spins in a row at will, or play in turn by turn as usual.
The paytable of Fortune Lions contains quite a lot of card icons plus golden lucky charms such as pierced coins or fireworks, with a top prize of 5250 credits available when playing all-in. The game’s relatively low variability makes this sort of big prize a little hard to go. On the other hand, you will get plenty of chances to score small wins so try to bet as many credits on the reels as you can.
Play for Free
To help you on your way to the jackpot, the developers of Fortune Lions have included some very useful bonus features such as a mini gamble game available after each win to give you a chance to double up your most recent payout. Simply guess the colour of the hidden card to multiply your reward by 2 up to 5 times in a row.
The lion costumes are the wild cards of Fortune Lions, ready to replace the other icons on the reels at once. The red paper lantern, however, is a scatter and can never be replaced. 3 of them appearing on the central reels initiate the Fortune Lions bonus round of 10 free spins.
A Classic Theme with a Modern Execution
Fortune Lions is based on one of the most common and popular universes on the slot game market. That being said, the sheer graphic quality of the game is enough to make it look quite unique and captivating. The wilds appeared fairly frequently and sometimes stacked on the reels when we were testing the game, which was a huge help on the way to the largest payouts of the game.
Dragons Pearl by Novomatic has a different approach to a similar theme but a virtually identical gameplay to Fortune Lions, only with a much higher variance. If you prefer to play big and are not afraid of a good challenge, then this might be a slot that you would enjoy trying out as well.
