Super Lion

The fabled “King of the Jungle” (who generally lives on savannah) is playing out in space in this Super Lion slot game from Skywind.

This is a very classic game that players of Starburst will enjoy. The grid is the classic five by three and despite the lion theming you won’t find too much in the way of African wildlife among the spacey gems and far out soundtrack of a game that spins its reels in front of the curve of a planet.

There’s a jackpot prize, and the Super Lion serves as a wild, in a game that is relatively simple and has good value rather than spectacular mathematics.

This is a super simple game that has proved popular for well over two years after its 2019 launch, and you can see why.

Should you be proud of this Super Lion though?

The Game

Super Lion slot

This is a very easy game to play with a standard control panel of, from left to right:

Information key, betting control (a simple plus and minus), information and balance window, turbo mode, auto spin, and finally the spin button.

Auto spin modes will be illegal in the UK from later on in 2021.

The lion is the expanding wild and will trigger a respin when it appears. It expands to cover a whole reel. Respins keep going until the wins stop.

Underneath it is a pay table of coloured gems (red, blue, pink, green, and orange), topped off with 7s and an ankh-like symbol. Five gems on a line win the jackpot.

The Verdict

This is a super game from Skywind who have done their Super Lion full justice in this lovely looking title.

Players will feel at home here, not least because it has the look and feel of one of the UK’s favourite ever slot games, Starburst.

There’s nothing original in the world of course, and least of all in the world of slots, and this game is different enough to simply sit in the same genre, plus add some nice gameplay tweaks to the style.

The Super Lion wild is an entertaining and good looking bonus symbol, and the prizes are very good for a low variance game.

If you need a free spins round to get out of bed and get spinning then Super Lion is not for you, but the respins feature is rewarding and fun.

Super Lion is a great release and it deserves its popularity, if you haven’t played it yet you should give it a try.

Super Lion Slot FAQ

What game provider developed the Super Lion slot?

This game comes from Skywind Group, the company formerly known as Vaiden Media. As well as game development the company also does business-to-business work.

They were founded in 2012 with Teddy Sagi (of Playtech fame) at the helm.

The company has released over 250 games, the vast majority of the video slots, with a few table games and other types of games.

Super Lion is currently their most popular title in the UK with Respin Mania and Ready Set Cash (two classic slots) filling out the top three. Titles like Book of Gems Megaways and Dragon Gong show they like a look-alike title or two and their games are highly rated by UK players according to usage statistics.

When was the Super Lion slot released?

Super Lion was released on the 8th of May, 2020.

What is the RTP of the Super Lion slot game?

The RTP of this game is 96.1%. That’s just above the average we think – most games are around 96% - but you shouldn’t read too much into that. RTP measures how much of the money spent on a game will be returned to players as winning, so this gives us what is also called a “house edge” of 3.9%.

This measure is created by running many many millions of simulated spins on a game, so it shouldn’t be taken as a prediction of your experience with a game.

What's the layout?

This game has a five by three grid, putting 15 symbols into play on five reels that are each three rows high. There are 10 pay lines, and they pay both ways.

What theme is used in this game?

The themes are: space, sci-fi, lions, animals, gems, psychedelic.

Can I play this game on mobile?

You can play Super Lion if your mobile or tablet device will support JavaScript and HTML5.

What is the variance of the Super Lion slot machine?

This game is advertised as a low variance. That means that it should pay out prizes more regularly than most games on the market, but that those games should be lower than most.

It is hard to give much weight to these figures as they are purely comparative and only make sense in relation to other games that you may have played. Low variance games are supposed to be more attractive to those who are more risk-averse, but as the figure interacts with the RTP to produce a similar game performance as most others we don’t see it that way.

What is the minimum bet and the top prize?

The minimum bet on this game is 0.1 coins and the maximum bet is 300 coins. That should be 10p to £300 on UK sites. Please be sure that you’re playing safely wherever you play and you are only using money that you can afford to lose. You can win up to 993-times your stake on this game.

Super Lion is chock full of bonus features. It has an expanding wild with respins, it has a jackpot prize, it has respin wilds, respins, a Starburst game and wilds of various sorts. There are no free spins on Super Lion, just a respin.
