The logo 'Lion's Pride' is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays 1250x the line bet, which is lower than the usual Wild value, due to the increased number of paylines in play. The Wild symbol comes stacked on all reels, in both the base game and the Free Spins game. Wonderful. The Black Mask is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays the usual 100x the total bet amount, and is beautifully presented with that bright and vibrant yellow scatter lettering. This is how I love all Wild and Scatter symbols to look - distinctly different from all the other lesser important symbols and instantly recognisable in a flash. 3, 4 or 5 of these Scatters trigger a Free Spins game, whereby the number of free spins awarded is random, up to 25 free spins, and with random multipliers too of up to 10x. This is simply super. No need to get 5 Scatters in order to get those 25 free spins. It can happen with only 3 Scatters. Furthermore, the Free Spins game can be retriggered. Ah! Doesn't all that sound so wonderful? If you can get them, that is, hehehe.
The Lion pays 1000x the line bet for 5 of them, the Lioness pays 800x, the Lion+Lioness pays 700x, and the other lower symbols pay from 600x to 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. The win value for the Wild is low, for the Scatter is average, for the other symbols are low too, except for the Free Spins game which is rather good, but the overall paytable can be considered as low, due to the 100 paylines. Nonetheless, the potential for good big wins are there, and possible, with those stacked Wilds on all reels, plus with that 10x multiplier. Therein lies the only place to win that maximum possible single win in the game - in the Free Spins game. But of course, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.
I like playing Lion's Pride, just as much as I like playing Tiger's Eye, but the high minimum starting bet has always prevented me from playing it for longer periods at a time. A big starting bankroll is definitely needed to really enjoy and benefit from this game. A small bankroll may soon see it coming to zero too soon, and that's no fun at all. My best win on this game was 92x my bet amount, achieved some years back, and getting one retrigger game in it too, which helped to reach the 92x mark. Wished it had gone above the 100x mark, but it didn't, but I was still happy enough with what I had won. If you have the money, give this game a try. You may just win big!
