Red Lion review: introduction
Red Lion is one of the Felix Gaming slots available to play in demo mode here at Slots Temple. It is a slot that revolves all around the Chinese New Year, with five reels, three rows and 20 paylines active at all times. The main attraction here is the 20,000x jackpot, but players can also benefit from the free spins round with unlimited retriggers.
Much like the 5 Lions online slot, this game has a Chinese theme. In Chinese culture, the lion is a symbol of stability, superiority and strength. Unfortunately, this game is much the same as the other Asian-themed titles out there with nothing to make it significantly different; however, plenty of attention has been paid to the detail, with colourful graphics. The slot is set in a pagoda with dragons curved around pillars on each side of the screen.
Red Lion RTP and variance
Red Lion has an RTP of 95 per cent, which is below our preferred minimum of 96 per cent. The volatility has been set at medium, which gives you pretty decent wins fairly often. Taking the middle line between the best and the worst aspects of low and high variance, it is ideal for new players.
How to play Red Lion
The controls for Red Lion are straightforward and easy to get to grips with, even for newer players. If you want a quick run-through of the various buttons, check out our guide below:
1. There are multiple buttons to set your bets to the bottom-left of the screen. Use the arrows to increase or decrease each of the four values.
2. Use the middle orange button to spin the reels once for your chosen bet amount.
3. Use the max bet button to set the maximum betting amount on the reels.
4. The auto play button will spin the reels automatically until it is pressed again to stop the reels.
5. View the paytable by using the green button in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen. The game’s bonus features can also be seen here.
Bet sizes & paytable wins
The bet sizes for Red Lion are what lets the game down slightly. Bets start at 0.01 coins and only go up to 30 coins per spin, which means the slot won’t be ideal for high rollers who enjoy spending larger amounts of money on the reels.
To get any sort of win from this slot, you will need to land matching symbols in groups of three, four or five on a payline. Here are the coin amounts you could win based on matching five of each symbol with a one-coin total bet:
- Jack, queen = 3.75 coins
- King, ace = 5 coins
- Gold dish = 12.50 coins
- Fan = 20 coins
- Turtle = 37.50 coins
- Wild red lion - 50 coins
Red Lion bonus features
- Wild symbol
The red lion is the wild symbol in this game, which is pretty apt. This symbol can substitute for all the standard symbols in the game to form more winning combinations. It will also pay out for landing two or more on a payline and is the highest-paying icon in the game.
- Free spins
Landing three, four or five yin and yang symbols anywhere on the reels will award you free spins. You can receive 10, 25 or 50 free spins respectively for landing these scatters. During the feature, you can also trigger an extra five free spins by landing two more scatter symbols. The feature can be retriggered an unlimited number of times by landing three or more scatter symbols.
- Bonus round
You can trigger the bonus round by landing the frog symbol on the first, third and fifth reels. In this round, you will be sent to a different screen that shows a street with fireworks in the background. You will be presented with five different chests and asked to pick one. Each chest contains a prize worth up to 50x your total bet.
- Red Lion feature
If you manage to fill the entire screen with red lion wild symbols in both the base and free spins games, you will receive the highest payout in the game of 20,000x your total bet.
The Red Lion online slot ticks all the boxes for a solid game for a variety of players. The theme and design are high quality and there are enough extra bonus features to keep seasoned players engaged for a long time. Alongside the bonus feature and the free spins, which can be retriggered, the high wilds are an extra that can be incredibly rewarding. There are lots of reasons to play this game if you like this kind of theme from your slots, as there is plenty on offer to enjoy.
