Take a step into the lion’s lair and see what you will find in there. Most likely a lion, we should imagine. But perhaps you’ll also find some cubs to coo at in the process. Fortunately, you won’t need to be afraid as this lion created by RTG is a friendly looking sort.

Lion’s Lair was created back in 2010 so it’s one of RTG’s older offerings, but that doesn’t mean it’s no good. Sure, the graphics are dated and it plays a little slowly, but it’s still a slot with something to offer. Upon the reels, you’ll find a variety of different symbols starting with the regular playing card additions. Then comes a lion’s pawprint, followed by a lily. There’s also a symbol of a zebra – a favourite meal for a hungry lion. The highest-paying standard symbol though, is that of the lion cub, which can multiply your wager by up to 3,750x over.

These symbols can be found across five reels and three rows which make up the Lion’s Lair interface. You’ll also find that there’s the inclusion of 20 pay lines to bet on. You have the ability to customise these easily – you just need to use the up and down arrow buttons at the bottom-right of the reels. At the bottom-left side you will find the buttons for changing your wager. The game allows you to select from bets between 1p and £5 per active pay line. This means that you have the option of bringing a maximum bet that equates to £100 per spin into play.

Special Features

At the very top of the game’s reels you’ll see a progressive jackpot total on display. This will continue to increase whenever a player places a bet on the Lion’s Lair game. The jackpot can be won by anyone, meaning that you don’t need to be playing any specific bet or forming any particular winning combination on the reels. Instead, you just need to continue spinning the reels and the jackpot pays out totally at random.

Lion

What’s wilder than a lion? Probably nothing, so it’s right that the lion operates as this game’s wild symbol. The lion wild is only able to show up on reels one, threem and five, but if it does, it will substitute for all standard symbols, with the only exception being the image of the actual lair.

If the lion assists you with forming a winning combination, then the pay-out for it will also be doubled.

The Lair

It is the lion’s lair that operates as this game’s scatter icon, and this one can appear on reels two, three, and four only, but it will provide a pay-out wherever it shows up. Additionally, this one has the ability to trigger the slot’s free spins round.

You’ll need to ensure that a scatter appears on each of the three central reels to activate free spins, and if you manage this, then 12 free spins will be awarded to you. During this round, win multipliers of 2x, 3x and 5x are displayed at the top of the screen. Each of those multipliers is used for four free spins and can only be utilised once during each set of 12 free spins given.

You also have the possibility of re-triggering the free spins while the round is in operation, in which instance, you’ll also get to benefit from the return of all the multipliers as well.
